What you think, you become.
What you feel, you attract.
What you imagine, you create.
We meditate to get to know ourselves. We meditate to make good decisions. We meditate to understand the purpose of life. Who we are, where we come from, where we are going to. When we meditate, we understand that life is full of magic and it’s up to us to conquer it.
Meditation can be defined as a set of techniques designed to stimulate a heightened state of awareness and attention. It is not by chance that almost all religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, have a tradition of meditative practices. Practiced for thousands of years, it has been proven to have enormous benefits in terms of psychological well-being, which is so necessary in phases of transition of consciousness on the planet, such as the one we live in today.
Research has shown that meditation can have both physiological and psychological effects. Some of the positive physiological effects include stress reduction, reduction in breathing and heart rate, changes in brain wave patterns, more and better immunity, headache relief, among many others.
Like everything good and natural, it takes time and practice. Yes, just like yoga it is necessary to do it regularly and educate our nervous system to have a moment for you.
There are several meditation techniques, I have been delving into mindful meditation. This method teaches you to slow down your thoughts, let go of negativity and calm your mind and body. It combines meditation with the practice of mindfulness, which can be defined as a state of mind that involves being fully focused in the now so that you can recognise and accept thoughts, feelings and sensations without judgment.
Techniques may vary, but in general mindfulness meditation involves deep breathing and awareness of the body and mind. To start, all you need is a comfortable place to sit, three to five minutes of free time, and a judgment-free mind. Come and learn this wonderful and transformative tool.
