A good meditation is the best way to mitigate all internal and external problems. Keeping the mind awareness is the best way to do so. In other words, introversion strengthens the connection between body and mind, linking them to the Universe. Learn more about this evolutionary process and do it yourself.
Meditating is an intimate experience that strengthens our physical and mental health and connects us with the Whole!
Meditation works as a kind of vaccine that can immunize us from bad energies that cause physical, mental, and emotional imbalance.
According to Buddhist philosophy, the greatest benefit of meditation is the liberation of the mind from attachment to things that cannot be controlled, such as external circumstances or strong internal emotions.
In this state of pure immersion, our thought runs throughout the body, as if the mind travels in every cell, in every organ, in perfect harmony.
Those who practice meditation do not have unnecessary desires or attachments, because they have the mind in constant harmony with the body and the Universe!
The evolutionary process of self-knowledge is the answer to relaxation
In the 1970s, Herbert Benson, MD, a researcher at Harvard University Medical School, coined the term "relaxation response" after conducting research on people who practiced transcendental meditation. The relaxation response, in Benson's words, is "an opposite and involuntary response that causes a reduction in sympathetic nervous system activity."
Studies on relaxation response have documented the following short-term benefits to the nervous system:
Lower blood pressure with better blood circulation
Lower heart rate
Slower respiratory rate
Less anxiety, with low stress
Reduction of cortisol levels in the blood
Let's practice some meditation then?
So start the day by practicing it in 10 steps, as follows:
Before getting out of bed, stretch, putting your legs up, hugging them at the same time. Make creative and gentle moves, because, after all, your body is waking up.
Caress, touch, do a light massage on the parts that need more attention. Massage feet, legs, spine, arms, hip. Stop and keep your eyes closed. Sit back, watch yourself.
Start activating your brain in a balanced way. Sit on the bed and close your fists. Take a deep breath and smoothly slap your head to reactivate the intuitive and intellect so that you can later count on better mental performance. Repeat this during the day if you feel necessary.
With your eyes closed feel and observe yourself, again, and breathe deeply. Then travel your mind up to the ceiling. From above, see yourself and draw on the mental screen how glorious your day will be.
Stand by for 1 or 2 minutes. Then do a full-body scan and get back to your body. Slowly.
Get out of your bed, no hurry, and open the window. Feel the fresh air and take a deep breath. The air penetrates every pore in your body. Too much energy is coming in.
Look at the sky. If the sun is in sight, take a deep breath again and feel the power of the hot rays merging with your being.
Breathe nature inner that makes you stronger than ever.
Let go of your breath, little by little.
Now, imagine that only bad energies are coming out. Your cells are cleaner and stronger.
Open your eyes and relax after all. You're ready to beat the challenges of the day that begins!
In meditation, you may achieve so-called "mindfulness"!
Wha is the mindfulness technique?
Who is not bored of staying eternally in the comfort zone, always guided by the routine of the day that rarely varies? In fact, we turned out to everyday robots and don't even quite understand what's going on around us.
Suddenly, the night comes. Time to eat lunch or dinner, see a movie on TV and this is it. Bedtime! So boring indeed!
We all live strictly in an everyday replay mode!
Because of this issue, researchers have discovered that "there is life outside the routines"! We should be the ones who control our minds and not, vice versa!
It is estimated that 95% of our behavior works in an "autopilot" mode. Automatic habits are designed by neural networks and end up reducing our creative capacity because automatism prevents access to millions of other sensory inputs.
In this context, the technique of mindfulness emerged. Actually it is originated in Buddhism and was adapted to our reality in the late 1970s.
The goal of mindfulness is to "wake up" in order to obtain self-control as well as to be able to change routines and readapt to new situations. This also works to debug our mental and emotional frequencies.
When a new event happens, whether traumatizing or not, it activates the neuroplasticity of the brain. At this point, new neurons are created that, if perceived by our mindfulness, can be shaped according to need. Otherwise, they may act to potentialize the problem.
In other words, from mindfulness, we will activate our ability to fully perceive, as well as to self-control our emotions and habits!
Meditation: the first step to body/mind evolution!
Integral self-control means being fully aware of physical and extra-physical sensations!
Currently, mindfulness programs are applied in schools, hospitals, and even prisons around the world!
Meditating is, after all, the best way to connect with the Universe, becoming a Unit i.e. the Whole!
