I hear that meditation and deep relaxation induces a significant healing effect on the body and can cure all sorts of diseases. However, I read on another website that God forbids/doesn't like people going into deep trances that are a result of serious meditation (or so that's what they said). The Bible says to meditate on God's Word, but other meditation says to clear your mind and not think of anything. So, is it honestly a sin to meditate unless you meditate on God's Word? And if deep trances and mind clearing allow the body to heal itself, then why is it a sin/forbidden? Personally myself, I like to listen to Buddhist music and meditate because it helps me gain control over my anger (I tend to become angry and frustrated easily, but I wouldn't say I have anger issues). So, would it be a sin? And no, I don't intend to convert to Buddhism I just like their music. Sorry to ask such a strange question but I'm curious. I want to be good Christian and make God happy, but I do believe in the healing effects of meditation.
