Some meditation promises amazing stuff like this ...

A secret practice developed by Aboriginal tribes almost 40,000 years ago, will take you to states of extremely deep and serene meditation ... the use of vibrational sound which helped them to access higher dimensions of reality…dimensions not seen, heard or touched in the normal waking state, but accessed through deep meditational practices. ... They believed that everything in the Universe was vibrating at a higher level than what we currently vibrate and in order for us to raise our level of consciousness; we needed to open up our energy systems to allow more of this higher vibrational force in, thus helping you to function in a higher more spiritual fashion.

This method of deep contemplation can help you unlock the process of creating new energy pathways between the right and left hemispheres of your brain –leading you to a lofty state of mind, scientists call "whole-brain functioning." ... It actually opens the seven key energy centers in your body (known in the East as Chakras) – making you a powerhouse of energy, mental agility, and creativity. ... The inner harmony, peace and happiness you will develop are described by people as positively euphoric! You are “high” on life. Your life. ... This primal secret was used to reach untapped and hidden gifts that lay dormant in the subconscious mind. Some of them being advanced thought, blissful states of consciousness and an unshakeable will power.

Other forms of meditation seek to attain this ...

In nirvikalpa samadhi the individual consciousness is totally merged in the Cosmic Consciousness. Those who experience this state are not able to explain or describe it because it occurs when the mind has ceased to function. The only way they can even know that they experienced this state is after the mind leaves this trance of absorption. Then they experience waves of extreme happiness and can assume that they were in the state of nirvikalpa samadhi. The attainment of samadhi comes after long practice in this life, or as a result of much practice in a previous life or through the grace of the Guru. It is the culminating point in millions of years of development from lower forms of life to humanhood and finally to merger with the source of all being.

Some meditation practices sound really useful:

Find out how to communicate and work with a spirit guide especially trained to do spiritual healing. You will take a look at energy causes of illness, learn meditation tools and discover how to heal yourself while you are healing others. ... you'll learn how to use your healing guides to remove energy cords, repair the aura and chakras, and perform cellular healings.

Zazen won't do any of that.

Abandon all involvements. Give the myriad things a rest. Do not think of good and bad. Do not care about right and wrong. Stop the driving movement of mind, will, consciousness. Cease intellectual consideration through images, thoughts, and reflections. [Nishijima]

Put aside all involvements and suspend all affairs. Do not think "good" or "bad." Do not judge true or false. Give up the operations of mind, intellect, and consciousness; stop measuring with thoughts, ideas, and views. [SZTP]
