Some people have heard of the term ‘Meditation’ and then ‘bodywork’. They then conclude that meditation is simply a form of bodywork. However, meditation has both benefits and limitations.
Conscious Opening To The Inner Self
Let us first look at the benefits of meditation. Firstly it has been described as the conscious opening to the inner self. It is not necessary to meditate to achieve this, but it certainly assists greatly in achieving the benefits of meditation. When we start to meditate, we work ourselves to release habitual patterns and distortions in our thinking, feelings and emotions.
The body is a temple of energy. Our thoughts and emotions all have energy centres, like the egg which is within the shell. It is when these energy centres are strained or are otherwise disturbed that the body feels pain or discomfort. This is why the body reacts to trauma and stress in such a way. We can then find the ways and means to heal the various energy centres and restore harmony and balance to our bodies.
Creates An Overall Feeling Of Well
The second of the benefits of meditation is that it creates an overall feeling of well-being. Some people might feel slightly nauseous from time to time. Meditation is also designed to clear the mind and remove any negativity that might have accumulated over time. The mind is then able to concentrate on things in its environment which have positive energy and will serve as support to the meditator.
The benefits of Transcendental Meditation go much further than just clearing the mind though. It is also designed to help the meditator to reach higher levels of awareness. When you meditate, you focus your attention on something very specific. You then allow your mind to wander off into an imaginary world where you can see and deal with all of your challenges. It can be as mind-blowing as watching a video on a DVD or Blu-Ray, but in the end it helps you to remember the important things in your life. These can be learning more about a subject that interests you, becoming more aware of your surroundings, or learning how to deal with life’s challenges and disappointments.
You Become More Receptive To Others
There are a number of other benefits of meditation as well. For instance, it is said that you become more receptive to others and to the world around you as you practice this. You also get a better night’s sleep and your immune system is boosted. If meditation is done regularly and in the proper way, there are a number of physical health benefits that can occur such as improved blood flow, clearer skin, increased sexual function and much more.
The benefits of this method of meditation is only limited by the level of consciousness that you choose to practice it in. By choosing a method that you find most relaxing, you will allow your mind to shift into a state of calmness. By allowing this to happen, you will then be able to focus on what is important in your life without having to worry about the day’s happenings. This will allow you to live each moment to its fullest while you are enjoying every single second of it. It is this simple process that can have a profound impact on your life.
