Meditation

Meditation can be a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and its values have been known and practised for thousands of years.

Benefits of Meditation

We live in a crazy world where we make ourselves ‘contactable’ 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  We seem to be afraid of missing out on ‘something’ if we are not ‘contactable’ or aware of what is going on in our world. However, it is exactly through this way of living we now find ourselves more stressed and generating more illnesses than ever.  We seem to make ourselves available for everyone but ourselves!

Our minds are constantly being bombarded with information – via the internet, TV, mobile phones, I-Pads, instant messaging, Twittering, Facebook advertising, newspapers, etc., etc., etc., and when we find we cannot cope most people’s first port of call is a trip to the GP for tablets, often freely prescribed without looking at other options.

However, meditation can be the key to smoothing out so many of our stress related issues. Meditation can be a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and its values have been known and practised for thousands of years.

These stresses can be very harmful and can stop you from getting on with and enjoying your life to the full. More importantly, they can also stop you addressing the causation, which can lead to a continuing cycle of ongoing issues. Dealing with stress is so important and by meditating you can learn to control and reduce your levels of stress and anxiety.

One of the most important benefits of meditation is how it can release these stresses from our bodies. Regular practice will bring a deeper level of relaxation, peacefulness and calm.

 We have become a generation who believes tablets will cure all; we expect a ‘magic and instant cure’, when in reality all we are doing is potentially polluting our bodies further *

Meditation can also help:

  • Increase creativity and intelligence.
  • Reduce depression (meditation isn’t a ‘magic key’ for depression, as no treatment is, but it’s one of the tools that may help manage symptoms).
  • Increase learning ability, moral reasoning and memory (since the strong focus of attention [on an object, idea, or activity] is one of the central aims of meditation, it’s not so surprising that meditation can help people’s cognitive skills).
  • Help with weight issues.
  • Reduce irritability and moodiness, giving you feelings of vitality and rejuvenation, increase self-esteem and alertness.
  • Increase your emotional control.
  • Improve anger control issues.
  • Improve your relationships with both yourself and others (meditation makes you free from within, helps you drop the inhibitions and the barriers that prevent effective communication).
  • Help you to conquer addictions (meditation helps people “decouple” the state of craving from the act of smoking for example, so the one doesn’t always have to lead to the other, but rather you fully experience and ride out the “wave” of craving, until it passes).
  • Improve concentration.
  • Enable better sleeping patterns.
  • Increase your emotional control.

Meditation can also bring about many physiological benefits, including:

  • Help lower blood pressure.
  • Prevent or control pain of chronic diseases.
  • Boost your immune system.
  • Lower cholesterol levels.
  • Improve airflow (especially in those with asthma, emphysema and other conditions of the lungs).
  • The ageing process: Meditation can have an impact on our genes – the more our genes get ‘switched on’ the more they can slow down the stresses and illnesses detrimental to our health, enabling us to slow down our aging mechanisms creating a younger biological age.

With meditation, your physiology undergoes changes and every cell in your body is filled with more prana (energy), resulting in joy and peace, giving a ‘can do’ attitude as the level of prana in your body increases. Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an Alpha state that promotes healing. The mind will become fresh, calm and put you more in control of your emotions. Meditation will cleanse and nourish you from within whilst calming you.  When you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down then daily meditation is the key!
In simple terms, you won’t become so stressed out about things! You’ll learn to let go of the things that used to irritate and stress you out.  In time, with regular practice, they will become insignificant and controllable.  This will enable you to lead a more stable and fulfilling life. There are no special clothes to be bought, you don’t need to have a religious affiliation and all ages can participate.
You’ll feel more peaceful and relaxed about everything! And, this positive attitude is what you will emit into the environment and to others, bringing harmony to all creation, to our planet and to all energy within the Universe. You’ll discover more about yourself than you ever knew and find that it is possible to send love and healing not only to yourself but to everyone.

If you can breathe, you can meditate!
