I have been meditating for 14 years and will share with you a brief introduction to some basics about meditation. The practice can be transformative for creating a calm, peaceful state and an overall sense of wellbeing. There are substantial emotional, physical and spiritual benefits to be realized from meditation. These benefits are cumulative and once you learn to meditate, it’s a practice that will sustain you for the rest of your life. Meditation can become the default way of handling the challenges that arise as opposed to seeking comfort in unfulfilling distractions that do not serve us well.
Meditation is about relaxing and letting go and allowing the mind to naturally settle down. It is not about doing, struggling, concentrating or engaging the mind. Practicing meditation creates new possibilities which arise from the heart. The mind becomes the servant of the heart and a whole new way of life begins.
When our mind finally lets go, inner stillness is where we land. From there we can reset and upgrade the experience of our life. The earlier we learn the value of inner stillness, the less we need to experience the more stressful ways life, which often nudges us into considering higher choices for personal peace and happiness.
Meditation engages and supports the interactions among the brain, mind, body, and behavior. Meditation has a long history of use for increasing and improving psychological balance, coping with illness, and enhancing overall health and well-being.
