Would you like to have at-call access to a very simple, yet extremely effective pain management tool that you can use for some pain relief throughout your day?
Would you like a tool that can help you get some relief from your pain so that you can focus your attention onto what you are doing, rather than the pain?
A tool that you can help you achieve this is: meditation.
You may not have associated meditation with pain relief before, but you will soon discover that meditation has many benefits, including management of pain.
Meditation is a very useful tool for helping you to relax and also to help you get relief from your pain.
Meditation is simply the act of focusing the mind on one thing and excluding all other thoughts. There are many different meditation “techniques” (formal and informal), but essentially they all seek to attain a similar result.
Meditation assists in reducing stress, anxiety and physical tension. It improves health, wellbeing and assists in the healing process and pain treatment.
Meditation is great for stress management. You will experience, relaxation, increased awareness, mental focus, clarity and a sense of peace if meditation is practiced regularly. Some other benefits of meditation include an increase in self-confidence and decrease in muscle tension (including pain resulting from muscle tension) and headaches.
There are many ways that you can meditate. The most common way is to sit in a comfortable position, keeping your spine straight and vertical. Sitting upright on a chair is an easy and comfortable position to meditate in. It doesn’t really matter what position you are in, whether it be sitting, lying down, reclining or lying on the Embodi-Cloud, as long as you are comfortable and in a position you can maintain for about 20 minutes or more.
To meditate, focus on something until your attention goes beyond the random thoughts that may be occurring in your mind.
You could focus on one of the following. .. – You r breath – A mantra – A guided visualisation – A solid object (usually a candle flame or flower) – A picture (usually a mandala which is a highly colored symmetrical painting)
You are not usually aware of all the mental activity in your mind. Focus and allow your mind activity to settle down. If you find yourself caught up in a thought pattern gently bring yourself back to the object of your focus. During the meditation, it is normal to experience itches and other body sensations – if this occurs relax and simply observe.
You may find meditation a little difficult at first but, with practice, twenty minutes will pass extremely quickly. You may even choose to prolong each meditation session.
As long as you achieve your goal of settling emotions, “uncluttering” your mind, relieving stress and achieving a refreshed and tranquil state, the precise method used for meditation is not particularly important.
The practice of meditating will result in you becoming more peaceful, calm and focused.
