    I think the Bible used the same terminology, but called it, "meditation."

    I think it means giving God more than just a passing time of "feeling good", but really spending hours immersed in Him..... and nothing else. At our church, we have nights devoted to "Soaking Prayer."

    well....

    gonna disagree...and you can throw things at me...I dodge good

    but anyway, meditation in the Bible meant on the word or God

    soaking...is all in the way you feel and it's not all that new...it's like when you stand with your hands raised and kind of totter back and forth with your eyes closed all blissed out

    IMO, depending, can be bad or good

    I would like to think if I am doing, it's all good..,.,.,.

    it may have been called worship at one time, but of course that is no longer hip enuff


    addendum: just read yr prayer comment above^^^^

    sounds intriguing and useful

    Some churches believe in soaking in the Holy Spirit---when done correctly---we are then empowered to to God's work---when done incorrectly---people are absorbed in themselves and not Christ...

    No need to be creeped out by it. But the word 'meditation' does seem to scare many Christians away, because it's most often associated with Eastern mysticism and New Age practices. Soaking on the other hand, is drowning in the Word of God through praise inspired by His Word.

    I find the idea of it creepy myself. Gives me a weird vibe, and when I get that I'm usually right.
    Give me a new voice
    Give me a heart for repentance and make it stay
    Cause I've idolized my words
    It's all my fault
    But it's comfortable
