When one says that a system is in an eigenstate of the Hamiltonian, what exactly does this mean?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I mean, if the Hamiltonian is the total energy of the system, then if it is in an eigenstate of the Hamiltonian, is this saying that its energy is a multiple of its total energy???? Obviously this makes no sense. I hope you can see where I'm confused.
