The Advanced meditator is identifiable by the fact that they're now using the technique and self-awareness they've developed to connect with higher consciousness and utilize their intuitive abilities more effectively.
In this sense, an advanced practitioner begins to see meditation not just as a skill (The Novice & The Beginner), or an art (The Intermediate), but as a life practice that deeply affects all areas of your life.
This can look very different depending on the practitioner. But if this is you, you’ve now progressively built a foundation of knowledge and experience, developed a consistency of practice, and have refined the quality of your meditation.
And as a result, you’re regularly achieving the key state consistently and letting it become the focus of your meditation before exploring various areas of practice.
