Meditation is a practice of contemplation or reflection - including considering a subject or object with attention and engaging in the mental exercise of concentration on your breathing or on the repetition of a mantra so that you can reach a higher level of spiritual awareness.
The word meditation can also be used as a verb - it's something you DO. When you want to understand something or someone more deeply, you meditate on it or on them. You can use meditation to gain deeper knowledge about yourself, your path in life, awareness of your strengths and challenges, and to feed / inspire your spirit. As a mental exercise, meditation involves relaxation, increasing and refining your focus, and building your sense of knowledge and perception.
