How Consciousness and Meditation are Related

If you ask me, consciousness and meditation go hand in hand. As someone who has been constantly working on my meditation practice for several years, I can passionately tell you that I think meditation is one of the greatest tools we have to allow us to understand our consciousness in hopes to learn more about ourselves and also as a tool to hopefully allow researchers to be able to adequately define the idea of consciousness sooner rather than later. So, I’d like to use this article as a guide to link together several of my favorite articles that we’ve posted on consciousness and meditation.

Consciousness

When one has consciousness, they are believed to have an awareness that they exist. They can think and analyze who they are and what that means. Despite knowing this tidbit of information, consciousness is so ill defined in the scientific world. In fact, there is no universal, agreed-upon definition for it. This is what makes it so tricky.

Here’s an extensive breakdown of the idea of the human consciousness and what it means to scientists today. And below are a few additional articles on the idea of consciousness:

Exploring the Human Consciousness

Why We See God in Chance

And, on a larger scale, many believe that we may be connected together in some form of global consciousness which you can read more about here!

Meditation

What I love about meditation is that it is a way to put aside time each day, pluck yourself out of the hustle and bustle of time, and truly allow yourself to be alone with your thoughts. It, in a way, forces you to focus on and study your own consciousness and what that means to you. And in my opinion, that’s why consciousness goes hand in hand with meditation. Meditation is a tool to help us understand our own consciousness. If you’d like to try out meditation or are looking for new exercises, here are a couple that I put together for you.

The Spiritual Side: Adding in Crystals

Whether or not you believe that crystals amplify or metaphysically add to your meditation experiences, I’d like to say that they still go hand and hand with meditation. And, if in no other way, they do allow your mind something to focus on. By focusing your energy on an item or a tool while meditating, you can help to clear your mind and allow yourself a means in which you can direct your energy, allowing your experience to be more clear and hopefully more beneficial to your mind.

The topics of consciousness and meditation most definitely go hand in hand. It’s something we regularly focus on here at Malorie’s Adventures, and it’s something I hope to incorporate more of in my professional studies.

Malorie Mackey is an actress, published author, and adventurer. Malorie grew up in Richmond, Virginia where she loved sports, the outdoors, animals, and all forms of art. She took to acting at a young age, so it was no surprise when she decided to go to college for theatre. While in college, Malorie studied body movement with the DAH Theatre in Belgrade, Serbia, voice in Herefordshire, England with Frankie Armstrong, and the business of theatre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Malorie moved from the East Coast to Los Angeles after receiving her BFA in Theatre Performance from Virginia Commonwealth University. Upon arriving in LA, Malorie participated in the Miss California USA 2011 Pageant where she won the “Friend’s Choice” Award (by popular vote) and received a beautiful award for it.

While living on the West Coast, Malorie accumulated over 40 acting credits working on a variety of television shows, web series, and indie films, such as the sci-fi movie “Dracano,” the Biography Channel show “My Haunted House,” the tv pilot “Model Citizen” with Angie Everhart, and the award-winning indie film “Amelia 2.0.”

Throughout her experiences, Malorie found a love for travel and adventure, having journeyed to over a dozen countries experiencing unique locations. From the lush jungles of the Sierra Madre mountain range to the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland, Malorie began adventuring and writing about her unique travels. These travel excerpts can be found on VIVA GLAM Magazine, in Malorie’s Adventure Blog, in Malorie’s adventure show: “Weird World Adventures” and in the works for her full-length travel book.

In 2022, Malorie was thrilled to become a member of the Explorer’s Club through her work on scientific travel. Her experiences volunteering on archaeological and anthropological expeditions as well as with animal conservation allowed her entry into the exclusive club. Since then, Malorie has focused more on scientific travel.

Malorie’s show “Weird World Adventures” releases on Amazon Prime Video in the Spring of 2024! Stay tuned as Malorie brings the strangest wonders of the world to you!
