Meditation

Peace is a practice. ~ Meditation is a time-honored technique that can take you into infinite dimensions of consciousness.

~ Calm comes to those who practice it

It is a simple effort that becomes effortless as we do it more and more. One major principle to meditation is the ability to completely quiet your mind. Quieting the mind comes as a result of meditating with time, but any time you are looking within, you are meditating.  Meditation helps us live a healthier, less stressful life. The physical and psychological benefits are wonderful and many people meditate only for those reasons. The practice of meditation helps us temporarily let the physical world go so that we can begin to see ourselves as we truly are – spiritually enlightened beings.

The Health Benefits of Meditation

Meditation can transform our lives. As we meditate and expand our consciousness we open ourselves up to love and light. We begin to see things from a more loving, spiritual view. We become more tolerant of others. We find more inner peace and joy…that inner peace touches everyone we come in contact with.

There are endless, boundless benefits to relaxation and meditation. Stress can often be a daily part of our lives. The fight or flight response can occur when an individual is subjected to severe stress such as a threatening situation or a resistant or hostile event. The response may be one of confrontation or one of avoidance such as running. The response involves all parts of the nervous system, as well as the endocrine system, and can be consciously or unconsciously mediated. The autonomic part of the fight-or-flight response results in a general increase in sympathetic activity, including heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, muscular strength, and can trigger an adrenaline surge that quickens your pulse, raises blood pressure, kick-starts anxiety and prepares you for “fight or flight.”

 

The fight-or-flight response is adaptive because it enables the individual to resist or move away from a threatening situation. can trigger an adrenaline surge that quickens your pulse, raises blood pressure, kick-starts anxiety and prepares you for “fight or flight.”

As meditation is practiced regularly, we find that we are able to handle everyday problems in a calmer and more relaxed manner. Our problems and difficulties are seen from a new perspective. Our coping skills are increased and we seem to find a new inner strength. Many studies have been done which show how our lives are enhanced by meditation. Both mental and physcial benefits have proven to be effective through relaxation and meditation techniques.

Mentally such benefits as:
Increased mental clarity
Improved emotional well-being
Increased happiness
Improved memory
Increased creativity
Improved relationships

The physical benefits include:
Decrease in respiration
Decrease in heart rate
Decrease in blood pressure
Decrease in sympathetic nervous system
Decrease in body metabolism

Space to Meditate

Your meditation space can be a small area in your home where you can sit with your eyes closed for at least a few minutes each day. Choose a clean, quiet place away from all distractions where you can sit on a chair or on the floor. If you use a chair, choose one that allows you to keep your back as straight as possible.

Best Ways to Meditate

There are many meditation methods. Some are passive — such as observing the breath. Others are active — in the sense that you actually do something like repeating a word or mantra. The meditations that you will find here will help you develop on many levels.
