There is so much to be gained from meditating every day, the health and vitality benefits are available to anyone who makes the time to practice this ancient and powerful practice. A way of life for many serious individuals, meditation is widely known and appreciated by people from all walks of life, however, not all practitioners are aware of the many benefits to meditating regularly.
Some people only choose to sit in stillness and silence because they are told or instructed to do so, like at a martial arts class, depending on the art being studied, it is common for many eastern masters to promote meditation before and after sessions for clarity and energy conservation before training, and after to calm the mind, allow energy to flow back to its internal bank and to revitalise the spirit. There is a reason why masters use meditation, and this alone should get your attention.
Same with other art forms like Chi Gong and Yoga, or healing arts like Shamanism or Reiki, these all rely on meditation to affect a variety of health and wellness aspects. The benefits of meditation when coupled with other similar practices are astonishing, seeing many people having fixed or improved many areas of their personal everyday lives, thanks to their smart choice to make an addition like meditation in their lives.
Used for enhancing concentration and information retention, great for studying, especially for people who have difficulty remembering details, just try 15-20 minutes of meditation before you begin with your study and you’ll notice the difference that it makes.
Quite often people leave their studying until a time when they know there will be peace and quiet, but meditation can help you to filter out noise from the neighbours, the streets or classmates, whichever your situation is, consistent meditation will configure your mind to be able to cope diligently even in situations when you are under pressure, you’ll find that you’re able to keep your focus.
People who suffer from high levels of anxiety are in danger of developing high blood pressure, due to being anxious, constantly worrying and never really seeing things for what they really are. A change in their natural perception will emerge, wiping out the cause of such stress and apprehension. The thoughts become clearer because the mind is finally able to relax and with the mind relaxed, the body relaxes also.
When the body is allowed to chill it can receive things like vitamins and minerals more readily because the body is functioning correctly. The same is true for information; the mind retains and processes the information that it receives more quickly and easily when the brain is not overloaded with tonnes of thoughts that do nothing but swirl around upstairs causing mental fatigue and burn out.
The more pressure that a person puts on themselves to perform the less favourable their performance will be. You “get out what you put in” and if the mind is receptive to the input that you feed it with you’ll have a great balance going on between mind and body.
Businesses around the globe are now introducing well-being sessions to their workforce in order to maximise full potential among employers and employees. It is a new fad which is being used in more organisations than ever before.
Executives and managers are recognising the benefits of having staff who are mentally refreshed and free from fatigue every day. Such aspects are obviously an asset to any business or organisation, with performance being increased due to employer/employee well-being there is a general atmosphere of productivity and professionalism that attracts a similar attitude from other employees – the feel-good-factor is contagious.
People who suffer from nervousness have much to gain from meditation, for example; attending an interview for a much sought after career is not an easy task even for people who are naturally confident, but meditating beforehand can ease apprehension and remove much panic, cooling your internal system to the point of feeling completely relaxed and able to focus on the task at hand.
There is a great deal to learn from meditation, the main lesson learned is about yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses, why you are who you are and who you can become. It allows people to face the experiences that they’ve tried to bury, as the past tense is always a heavy burden to carry, the journey of your life will not get any easier if you are holding onto harsh memories. Such burdens cause serious damage and if carried for long enough then the damage could become permanent in some cases.
It takes courage and discipline to face the things that you’d rather hide from or totally forget about, meaning that you will be running and hiding for the rest of your life and that is no way to be living a life that is full of so many golden and unique opportunities.
Take a look at certain celebraties or famous people, not all of them had sweet upbringings and not all successful people were confident and error-free before they found their successes, many had to fight to get to where they are now, some of these stars had traumatic childhoods, others had different struggles, the point is that they did what they had to do to change things. This indicates that they stood face to face with their discomforts and they persevered.
This does not mean to say that each and every person who has made it from despair to limelight has adopted meditation to their everyday lives but it does mean that they made a fundamental change with how they view life, as well as themselves, also it shows that they learned from the hard times enough to never have to walk backwards again. Meditation can help you to make such turnarounds in your life, it can point you in the best direction possible to start building your own personal empire.
Everyone has some reason for being alive, and you’ll be able to learn exactly what that reason is as soon as you learn to listen to the messages that call for your attention, meditation will teach you how to listen actively, also, you’ll be able to make sense of the messages that you receive.
Some messages come in the form of a stranger that you meet on the street briefly, or from a colleague at work, a television program could even be used to get a message across to you, you’ll know when the same message is given to you randomly by different people or circumstances. But beware, if not heeded soon enough it could be ages yet before the message or opportunity resurfaces – if it ever does. Meditating regularly will be one of the best things that any person could ever do to bring benefit to the mind and the body – long term.
Caring for yourself enables you care for others too, the quality that you give to yourself is the same quality that others will receive from you and this is why some people are more appreciated than others, because when they give of themselves the recipient can feel something genuine, even though at the time they may not realise it, but it’s always the feeling that has people ‘go back’ for more. Energy is always in constant supply and meditating connect people to the Universal energy that is otherwise known as Life Force, without it we die.
We would love to hear from you
