Meditating can be a good way of tapping into the subconscious to understand our inner self. It will help us answering questions we have related to life.
Meditation is important in making or deciding the path in which our life should take. However, we should not be discouraged if we do not seem to get the right answers straight away.
Keep on practicing and in the end, you will finally get the answers. When we are meditating, the brain transforms to a theta state. When we are in this state we encounter very minimal interference from the conscious state of the mind. Thus, we successfully contact the subconscious state of the mind.
