I chose a more squishy definition for this today, as I think this is a mystical experience. And I might be placing the cart before the horse with this, considering that I haven't explained Eucharist yet. That will be the word for tomorrow. The reason it followed yesterday's is because the monstrance is the vessel used to expose the Eucharistic host -
Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honouring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".
During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!"

Yes it is. It can be a wonderful experience to meditate with the Eucharist. I've enjoyed this time in the adoration chaple in my church.
