On average, we talk to ourselves 65,000 times a day. It is extremely difficult for most people to learn the traditional Eastern style of meditation as it involves learning to make the mind blank. 65,000 dialogues with ourselves each day means there is plenty of clearing to do
Meditation and relaxation go hand in hand to help you achieve the state of enhanced perception and mental functioning that are the outcomes of Active Meditation techniques.
When you learn meditation methods you will be able to deliberately calm yourself down any time, any place. You will be able to release all negative thought patterns, achieve full relaxation, experience enhanced creativity and tranquillity and overcome unhealthy habits like smoking or overeating.
It is now scientifically proven that meditation can boost self-esteem and develop better relationships with yourself, your family, friends and those you work with.
The first physical step in learning to meditate is to get into a comfortable position, and make sure you will not be interrupted for about 20 minutes or so. If you are able to learn the technique, meditation and relaxation will both happen which is healthy and positive.
To help our understanding it is a good idea to know about brainwave states. Our state of mental consciousness is indicated by four different brainwave states.
The Beta brainwave state is our day-to-day waking state of consciousness. We are doing multiple tasks in this state (eg tuning into the radio, operating a car, planning a work meeting). This is the state in which we take on stress.
The Alpha brainwave state is the relaxed, focused state where we think of only one thing at a time and we also release stress.
With the right meditation methods, you’ll be able to attain the Theta brainwave state. This is the state of meditation where your mind is super alert but you may or may not be aware of your body. To get to Theta it usually takes from four to seven minutes.
The deep sleep stat e or the Delta Brainwave state is the fourth state, which is a dreamless condition.
Every meditation you do releases stress and helps provide clear perspective to the challenges you experience in life. While in the meditation state your mind will be extremely acute even as your body relaxes to the point of feeling either extremely light, very heavy, or having no feeling at all. One or more of these conditions signifies that you have reached the Theta state of deep meditation.
Just the practical benefit of such deep relaxation alone will prove invaluable by allowing you to more calmly face everyday challenges with relationships, work, family, self, money and many other areas.
There are numerous benefits to meditation. Many people have even used meditation and relaxation to help with various life issues including asthma, weight release and much more.
The ability to meditate is one of our most important skills to achieve full mind-body integration. It is important to learn this ability to relax and release stress quickly and easily, without special preparation. Meditation and relaxation is also the means by which we can consciously enhance our ability to heal and reprogram our subconscious mind to achieve what we want in life.
