Native American Indian spirituality is based on the connection between humanity and the natural world. They have great respect for nature, animals and trees. In the American Indian belief system, meditation is a way to transcend from the material world and obtain divine wisdom.
Before you meditate, native American Indian tradition calls for purifying your aura by burning sage. Take a dried bundle of sage and light it to produce a small amount of smoke. Using the smoking sage as a wand, circle your head and body to cleanse your aura. Also, purify the area in which you'll be meditating, hold up the lit sage bundle in all four corners of the structure, and smudge some ash from the burnt sage on doorways.
A common American Indian meditation technique is drumming. The drum is a key tool for an Indian shaman, it increases his intuition and heightens his perceptions of the supernatural. In addition, the drum can release and balance spiritual energy, and the hypnotic rhythms can help calm your mind and relax your body to achieving a meditative state.
