Meditation benefits

We know that the physical, spiritual and emotional benefits of meditation have been well documented for thousands of years. Scientists, spiritualists, philosophers and religious leaders have heralded the power of meditation by witnessing awareness.

Known as deep reflection, mindfulness, or contemplation, meditation allows us to drift into the space between our thoughts. Because meditation works on a subconscious level, if we do it for long enough, it begins to express itself through the subtle choices, we go on to make. The more you meditate, the more conscious your thoughts, decisions and daily actions become.

Meditation gives us a deeper sense of calm, helps us manage a broader perspective on our issues and therefore greater clarity, allowing us to tap into our more authentic self, where grace becomes part of us. The emotional shift of meditation may be so subtle that we may not even see these meditation benefits straight away.

Meditation helps us achieve a greater alignment between what we think, what we say and how we behave. It allows us to slow down when the world turns at a faster pace. Meditation helps us re-evaluate how we live and what’s important in our life.

Over a period of weeks, even months you will begin to acquire a deeper understanding of yourself and how a spiritual path might work; a path where you’ll make new discoveries about yourself that you never knew existed.

  1. Trying to meditate definitely proves that I have ADHD as I have a very hard time doing it. People claim that it’s great for a lot of things, but most of the time I just end up falling asleep since I don’t sleep very well as it is.

    I guess that it has a lot to do with my PTSD, as it doesn’t really allow me to normally relax when I’m hyper-vigilant.

    What I usually end up doing is just focusing on remaining as calm as possible, to avoid my blood pressure getting any higher than it already is.

    It’s my own personal form of meditation, but I usually do it while I’m awake and alert, so it’s more like an app just running in the background which works for me.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, I too have only just learned why I can’t mediate. Autism is the reason. Like you I end up falling asleep.

      If meditation isn’t for you and you’ve found another way to relax that works, I would say continue… go for it.

      Focusing on remaining calm is excellent. Like you, I also need to focus on remaining calm, particularly when I’m dealing with anxiety.

      But it’s not something I remember to do.

        1. Thanks Carol. Yes, continue to do whatever works for you. I don’t think there should be a set rule, it’s what works and stick to the winning formula.

          It’s been proven and the facts speak for themselves, the more we meditate the calmer and more at peace we will be.

          It’s not difficult to look at what’s going on around us to know that there isn’t a lot of meditation going on.

          Shutting off as a child, retreating into myself although it wasn’t meditation, it did help me function better.

          Although I still do it, my writing now helps with that.

  2. I have never tried meditation, although for a while I did go to a relaxation class which I found enjoyable.

    Life is hectic these days and although I have less time to relax than I once did, I probably need to find the time more importantly than ever.

    1. I think you’re right, more of us should. In such uncertain times it’s important we take time out to relax, if we can’t meditate.

      Meditation is an art form, but it’s well worth the benefits if you can do it.
