Introduction to Meditation

The ancient wellness practice of meditation is a 2,500-year-old Indian practice that involves relaxation, focus, and awareness. Meditation is to the mind what physical exercise is to the body. Meditation is a means of transforming the mind and encourages and develops concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm in seeing the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.

 

Meditation taps into both the physical body and psychological mind, changing he chemistry of the body and brain waves; moving from Beta waves (normal waking state) to Alpha and Theta waves (a deep meditative state).

The Science Behind Meditation

  • In a recent study from Harvard University, they found that long-term meditators, have increased amounts of gray matter in the insula and sensory regions, and the auditory and sensory cortex. They confirmed that meditation reduces stress, fosters clear thinking and increases our capacity for empathy and compassion.

  • When meditating, the body undergoes a structural change, which demonstrates the profound impact of simply sitting down with eyes closed. In fact, MRI images show a complete change in the brain’s different departments, which results in a relaxation response in the rest of the body.

 

  • When meditating, beta waves, which indicate a state where information is being processed, decrease, and are replaced by alpha waves, which are associated with total brain coherence. The frontal and parietal lobes, which deal with reasoning, planning, and processing sensory information, slow down. And without a glut incoming stimuli, the nervous system is able to rest, resulting in relaxation and improved functioning in the entire body.

  • Meditation brings the brainwave patterns into a relaxed alpha state, that relaxes the body as well as the mind. Without constant stimuli entering the sensory pathways, the mind is able to relax and enter a state of deep rest.

  • Meditation is also a practice of self-care, that allows for a connection with the inner self. In doing so, self-esteem increases and the ability to make decisions that align with the individual’s authentic feelings and desires, and allow for better self-regulation.

 

  • On a physical level, meditation: lowers high blood pressure, lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks, decreases tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems, Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior, Improves the immune system and Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energy.

  • On a mental level, meditation: decreases anxiety, emotional stability improves, creativity increases, happiness increases, intuition develops, clarity and peace of mind increases, problems become smaller, sharpens the mind by increasing focus and expands through relaxation, emotional steadiness and harmony.

  • Meditation relaxes the entire brain, including the amygdala, which is the emotional center of the brain.

  • Meditation brings harmony in creation. When you meditate, you enter a space of internal expansiveness, calm, and joy. The result is feelings of expansiveness, calm, and joy in waking life, which has an effect on our interactions with others and the world around us.

  • Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation from the inside out. As you experience your inner storehouse of peace and security, you will naturally begin to discover aspects of yourself that were previously hidden due to stress.
