Meditation is an ancient practice that has been around for thousands of years.
It is the art of quieting the noise in your mind.
I also believe that there’s a deep science around it.
When you study the biology of the body, meditation touches on the points that create a calmer well being.
Humans have this incredible thinking organ called the brain.
The brain has evolved for survival. It constantly looks for what it needs to protect you from.
It is NOT here to allow you to thrive.
The only way that human beings can transcend the lower vibrations of survival (aka fear, hate, judgement or pain) is through meditation.
Benefits Of Meditation
1. You Are Able To Be Fully Present.
When you practice meditation, you are able to fully become engaged in the moment.
You are not thinking about the past or worrying about the future.
You can be still in your mind’s voice and communicate from your heart.
You will have a lot of presence and charisma.
2. You Will Sleep Better.
Often in meditating, we use the chant, “Om“.
It is referencing to the chi or the center of the third eye.
If you look at the biology of the brain, the Pineal gland is located in the part where the the third eye is located. The Pineal gland is responsible for night time sleep cycles.
During the day, this gland releases Serotonin, which is the neurotransmitter associated with the feeling of happiness.
At night time, it sends out Melatonin which is responsible for peaceful sleep or deep REM.
Meditation allows you to have deep healing and relaxation into this part of the brain.
3. Your Intuitive Ability Will Get Stronger
Humans are bilateral creatures. That means we have two sides that are mirror images of each other.
We are literally split down the middle, the right and the left.
In Yoga, the chakra located in between your eyebrows is also called the intuitive center.
This is where you get your visions of the future.
This is where you can see the truth of who you truly are beyond fear.
When a human is full of stress and fear, the intuitive center gets blocked up.
Practicing meditation opens up this part of the brain.
Meditation literally clears out the clutter and confusion, giving you a stronger intuition.
Different Ways To Meditate
Breathing Exercises – Count 10 slow breaths. Appreciate every breath as you clear your thoughts.
Chanting – Chants are repeated rhythmic phrases.
Reciting Mantras – Mantras are words or sounds repeated to aid concentration in meditation.
Practicing Asana Yoga – Moving meditation that aligns moving the body with the breath.
There are so many more!
The key to meditation is to find something that you enjoy.
