If you scored 0 to 5, you’re a fish.
You’re swimming straight but in the wrong direction. You keep making the same choices but you aren’t remembering to learn from them.

If you won’t take any action, right now, you’ll drive yourself to a wrong direction. Take some time to focus on yourself. Everyday, set aside some time to just sit with your thoughts. Observe if your mind fights the free time and tries to fill it and interupt it, or if there is deep peace and contentment instead. Keep doing this until the mind stops trying to avoid itself and starts to accept itself.

If you got 5-10, then congratulations, you’re a duck.
Sometimes you swim aimlessly like a fish but sometimes you can really soar. Some days are really great, but some days you just can’t get it together and life can be a struggle.

At this stage, you’ve got to practice making consistency your goal. You’ve got lots of good habits but you’ve got to make them stick. If you start every single day with a few minutes of meditation, no matter how tired or busy you are, you will set each and every day up to be a massive success.

If you scored 10-20, congratulations, you’re an eagle.
You soar through this world with ease and grace. Sure, it’s not all roses, but you are making it work. You’ve got it together and even though you don’t let anyone see you sweat, privately you wonder if there isn’t more to life than just flying around and eating worms.

To get the most out of this life, an eagle is going to need spend some quality “me” time. Every day, an eagle needs to recharge his spiritual batteries. In order to create inner peace, the eagle needs to carve out some times for peace in their busy day. This can be meditation, yoga, art or a stroll through nature.

If you scored more than 20, congrats, you are the almighty lion.
You do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. You don’t worry about the past or the future, you don’t consume more than you need, and you are always content with who you are and what you are doing.

For lions, the best thing to do is keep it up. Small little habits can really help keep a lion roaring for decades to come. A gratitude journal, a daily meditation practice, a good diet, yoga and exercise, and filling the brain with positive influences is all it will take for a lion to lead a fulfilling life.

Your Path is Still Not Complete! You’re Just Getting Started.
No matter how you did on the questionnaire, every single human being has within them the potential to live the life of their dreams. This is our birthright. Oftentimes, the people who are the most loss become enlightened the quickest, for it is our struggle that makes us stronger. All it takes is a choice to change and that first step.

This meditation quiz is designed to be used as a starting point in our meditation and spiritual journey. Meditation is a chance to sit down and spend some quality time with ourselves so we can begin to understand our own mind. Using this meditation quiz is an excellent jumping off point for such inward exploration. We hope this meditation quiz can bring you some early and useful insights that can help guide you on your journey.
