Meditation

What is meditation?

Meditation is relaxation. It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration. It’s not about focussing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless.

What are the benefits of meditation?

A calm mind

Good concentration

Better clarity

Improved communication

Relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind and body

Health benefits of meditation

With meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This results in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases.

On a physical level, meditation:

Lowers high blood pressure

Lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks

Decreases any tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems

Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behaviour

Improves the immune system

Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energy

 

Mental Benefits of Meditation

Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an alpha state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. It cleanses and nourishes you from within and calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down. With regular practice of meditation:

Anxiety decreases

Emotional stability improves

Creativity increases

Happiness increases

Intuition develops

Gain clarity and peace of mind

Problems become smaller

Meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus and expands through relaxation

A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration

An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress

The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection

Meditation makes you aware – that your inner attitude determines your happiness.

 

Spiritual benefits of meditation

Meditation doesn’t have a religion and can be practiced by anybody regardless of the faith they follow.

Effortless transition from being something to merging with the infinite and recognizing yourself as an inseparable part of the whole cosmos

In a meditative state, you are in a space of vastness, calmness and joy and this is what you emit into the environment, bringing harmony to the Creation/planet.

Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation. As you learn more about yourself, you’ll naturally start discovering more about yourself.
