Through meditation, I have learned to will myself into a meditative state. You'd think it'd make for a neat party trick and little else, but its uses are many. For one, it allows me to exit my body and enter the astral plane, where I can get in touch with my subconscious and conference with other-worldly beings. It also temporarily heightens my pain tolerance, reduces my stress levels, and even cures my headaches.
But more importantly, it's indelibly marked the course of my life. With magic, I've acquired large sums of money during periods of dire financial straits, helped friends to heal from their ailments quicker, and met the man I fell in love with. It has greatly enriched my otherwise pessimistic outlook on life, and I couldn't speak any higher of it.
