    It's been proven that anytime you allow yourself to meditate, your body releases chemicals and your mind clears.

    The more you meditate the quicker you can get into the "zone", if you rarely meditate, it can take longer to get there.

    The bible says we should meditated on the Word of God, which simply means that when you are meditating, consider the writings, and what they mean for you today.

    Trying to make your mind stop moving won't work; worrying about it only aggravates the situation.

    Meditation is defined as "A steady flow of attention to one thing." When the mind is occupied with only one thing, it isn't doing anything else and is more relaxed than at other times. What the attention is on is also important. If you are a spiritual seeker, the attention should be on something spiritual.

    Meditation is also defined as "A sufficient concentration of life energy (prana) in one place for a sufficient length of time." This can be attained by the first definition, but it can also be attained spontaneously under the right conditions. Either way, this is the ultimate form of meditation, a true meditative state that more than relaxes the mind - it stops it entirely. Now, that's relaxation of the mind!

    Yes.  Meditation, if done properly, tends to give the arithmetic/logic portion of the brain a break.  Thus, it relaxes the mind.

    Depends on the kind of meditation you're performing, though typically yes, it is fairly relaxing.  Entering a gnosis is basically like being hyper focused, awake, groggy, and asleep all at once.  In the midst of that, relaxation is easily found.  Some meditations can cause quite a ruckus upstairs, though most people don't play with fire that often

    Meditation definitely works. But there is a lot of vague teaching of how to do it that won't work for most people. There are many types of meditation. Zen meditation is very much in the body. I find that, with a balanced, precise posture and relaxed natural breathing, thinking stops.
