Raja Yoga Meditation
Raja Yoga meditations have a foundation of the soul being a point of light and all meditations are based on this concept. Raja yoga literally means kingly. It is a form of meditation which is based on relating a person’s life to different ideas. It brings together the inner thoughts of the mind and emotions. It balances the attention on these aspects in order to provide a focused mind for meditation. Raja yoga uses a life force which moves from the upper body through the spine up to the lower body.
This type of yoga aims to balance the mind and emotions in a peacefully way. With this, people practicing this meditation will be aware of the energy present in the mind and body. The person must be very calm and attempt to avoid his/her mind to be passive. It involves releasing meaningless worries, stresses and thoughts of the subconscious mind. At the end of every meditation in Raga Yoga, the person is expected to discover a pleasant sense of being. It fills the mind with free thoughts and thus gives him/her the comfort to use the new thoughts freely.
Raja Yoga is also called as Classical Yoga. It is the cultivation of the mind to acquaint him/her with what reality can give. The term Raja is first used in the 15th century. Up to this date, the term is used to describe the kind of meditation of the Brahma people. Traditionally, there are eight aspects to which one should be able to take into consideration.

Raja Yoga Meditation philosophy
The basis for attaining an experience in raja yoga meditation in to understand the self and the mind. Using this energy called mind we have been able to search the deepest oceans, send humans to the moon and scan the molecular fabric of the building blocks of nature. But have we found our true self? We have become the most educated and civilized society in our history, but are we civil towards each other?
According to raja yoga Meditation The soul has three main faculties; the mind or consciousness, the intellect and the subconscious.
Thoughts flow from the sub conscious mind to the conscious mind. Feelings and emotions form in accordance with the montage of thoughts flowing in the mind. Therefore our state of mind at any given moment is determined by the thoughts in our consciousness, and also with the feelings that we associate with those thoughts. Since our sub consciousness contains all our previous thoughts and experiences, it is necessary to selectively control the flow of thoughts that emerges from the sub conscious mind.
The intellect is the controller which is used to discriminate so that only positive and benevolent thoughts flow into our mind. With meditation or deep contemplation, the individual is able to strengthen and sharpen the intellect. The end result is a constant state of well being. If we are able to understand the self as the source of energy that creates our feelings, then the following will become our aims.
Become aware of our state of mind and of the thoughts
that flows into the mind from our subconscious.
Be a light to others and you wont stumble on your own path. Meditation is a process of careful thought consideration.
