The Benefits Of Regular Meditation
In our fast-paced, modern world, we often rush from one appointment to another. We are constantly reachable, and must always be physically and mentally present. There is less and less time to relax properly and recharge our own battery.
What is meditation?
Meditation is a state of absolute relaxation (samadhi). It’s not about focusing on something. Instead, is about letting go: no focus, no thoughts, but just rest and absolute relaxation.
Meditation has positive effects on the body & mind
Through regular meditation, positive effects on the body and mind can be achieved. This is because “prana” (the subtle life energy) continuously increases with long-term and regular exercise in the body. At the same time feelings of joy, peace and also personal enthusiasm are increased.
At the biochemical level, meditation can have the following effects:
- A reduction of blood pressure
- A decrease in the lactate level, which can release anxiety and tension
- A reduction in tension-related pain (e.g., headache), ulcers, insomnia, muscle or joint discomfort
- An increase in serotonin production, which improves the general condition
- A strengthening of the immune system
- Improvement of one’s own energy level, since now the internal energy source is activated
On the mental level, the following improvements can occur:
- Reduction of tension
- Development of emotional strength and stability
- Increase in creativity
- An increase in clarity and mental calm
- Improvement of the ability to concentrate
- Increase of cheerfulness
- Improvement of intuition
- Problems seem much smaller and less important
- Solutions can be better recognised and implemented
- Enlargement of Consciousness – Meditation makes it clear that the inner attitude determines personal happiness
- After all, complete relaxation and rejuvenation of body and mind can occur.
Proper Meditation: What is important?
The extent to which meditating brings positive effects depends entirely on how regularly meditation is done. To achieve optimal effects, it should be scheduled about 2x 20 minutes a day. If you do not have that much time, you can start with just a few minutes, rather than not meditating. Gradually increasing the duration over time.
Once your body and mind become accustomed to the new routine, meditation quickly becomes the best part of the day!
Our recommendation: Meditations with mantras are very effective. The Sahaj Samadhi meditation is not only particularly effective, but also ideal for beginners.
Meditation resembles the seed of a plant:
It needs time, love and dedication and finally blossoms into a beautiful flower.
