The Benefits of Meditation
The practice of meditation is increasingly popular. People incorporate meditation into their lives for many reasons. It can expand awareness and perception. Others use meditation as a form of relaxation after a stressful day or event. Some use meditation to promote physical and mental health. The state of successful meditation is achieved through deep relaxation so that your mind and body can be revitalized and refreshed.
Meditation should reflect a philosophy. This philosophy supports belief in oneself and belief in life. Increasing your belief in yourself can deepen peace and relaxation. Thus, the positive effects may include emotional ease, physical health, mental clarity, good relationships, and fulfillment as a person.
The energy that flows in the human body is dynamic and varying. Everything is an intelligent expression of life’s energy. What you see, hear, think, and feel are all expressions of that energy flow. If you can create a feeling of positive energy flow into your life without any resistance, then you can experience peace and tranquility. If you create a feeling of negative energy flow, then you can experience suffering and stress.
Meditation can provide both short-term and long-term benefits. It includes better sleep, faster healing, less anxiety, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, stronger immune system response, and decreased use of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs.
Meditations can help you make the flow easier. It encourages trust so that things can naturally unfold in your life. Your awareness on how you control, resist, or let go of situtations is deepened.
Life consists of opposites such as pleasure and pain, sorrow and joy, success and failure, love and hatred, and others. To achieve true peace it is necessary to understand this fact, and concentrate on the positive. You can learn to let go of forces of resistance that are blocking the flow of positive energy.
The energy that is flowing into your life must never be met with resistance. Most people have the habit of resisting pain and other emotions that are unpleasant. You should acknowledge pain or other unpleasant feelings. Examine them and let them happen in the moment. Embracing whatever feeling you have in the present moment is simply an act of loving yourself and acknowledging that the feelings exist. Through the act of meditation you can deal with these feelings in the moment, then return to peace and harmony.

Guided Meditation: Quiet the Mind
Assume a comfortable position. Shut your eyes as you start relax. Take in a
deep breath, now breathe out, emptying your lungs entirely. And once
again. Take full deep breaths, never strained or rushed. Breathe in strength,
breathe out tension. Carry on to relax. Take full deep breaths. Allow your
breathing to discover its own natural, unhurried pace. And as ideas enter
your mind, allow them go without attachment.
Now listen to the world that exists inside you. Hear the clattering of your
mind, the constant talking to ourselves. See the patterns and habits of the
mind – planning, scheming, calculating, judging, comparing, worrying,
daydreaming. Note when it flies into the past of memories, reliving them
over and over like an addiction to thought. Note when it chases after the
future, attempting to control time by planning and hoping.
But let yourself let all that thinking go, just for a moment. Reassure
yourself, that even if you quit thinking for just a few moments, it’ll be ok.
Give yourself permission to love this moment, without calculating what you
could be doing instead. Encourage yourself that you deserve this time out
from the hectic life you lead, and the frantic thinking you’re so accustomed
Your breathing is unstrained. Relax your toes and feet. Relax your ankles
and knees. Relax your leg muscles. Your breathing is deep and relaxing.
Relax your fingers and hands. Loosen up your wrists and elbows. Relax
your arms. Your breathing is slow and peaceful. Feel your feet and legs get
heavy and warm. Feel your hands and arms get warm and heavy. Simply
breathe as your thoughts come and go.
Center on your breathing. Let go of tension as your body falls into a state of
peaceful quiet. Unclench your jaw. Relax your face and let go of your
tongue. Your heartbeat and breathing are serene and steady. Your
breathing is relaxed. Void your mind of all thoughts. Your abdomen is soft
and warm, your limbs are heavy and warm.
Watch your thoughts come and go like clouds in the sky. Your hands are
warm, your forehead is cool, and your breathing is deep and relaxed. Feel
your breath sink lower and lower into your lungs. As your shoulders drop,
feel your breath fill the upper part of your chest. You’re relaxed and
Your breathing is deep and relaxed. Warm hands, cool forehead. Empty
your lungs totally. Hear the silence grow as your mind hushes. Your are
relaxed, calm, and centered. Your heart rate and breathing are calm and
steady. Warm hands, cool forehead. Your breathing is deep and relaxed.
Enjoy the quiet.
When you know it is time to leave this place, begin to return. Let your
breathing bring you back. Gently take a couple of deep breaths. Pause a
moment. Remember one last time that you can return to this place any time
you wish. It may only be for a moment, but it will remind you of the sense
of peace that’s yours.
Open your eyes.
Feel the goodness of the meditation for a few moments.
