Meditation really can help you become peaceful and calm. You can replace your negative and uncomfortable feelings with feelings of well-being naturally with meditation. You can enjoy peace.
Being able to go into a relaxed state any time you want to is a very good thing. But being IN that relaxed state ALL the time is even better. Long before you learn to be relaxed and calm at all times, you will still have many benefits from meditation.
Your heart rate will normalize. Your body will slow down. You will concentrate more easily.
If you continue to practice, there will be a point when you will become an observer. You will be aware of all that is going on around you but will no longer feel distressing emotional and physical reactions. You will be an observer rather than simply reacting without control.
Meditation and “medication” are spelled almost identically. But there are some very important differences.
When you meditate, you are learning to be in control of your body and your mind. It is a form of self-healing; of healthy self-medication. While I would never tell you not to take drugs that your doctor prescribes for you, it is important that you must be aware of the possible side effects. A drug that works for one person may not work for another.
But meditation–that is the natural “drug” that has only positive side effects!
Without going into all of the chemistry of the human body, meditating causes the “feel good” or stress-releasing natural chemicals to be generated in your body. This is the same type of response runners have. They call it “runners’ high.” You can enjoy runners’ high without the need to run!
Meditation is one of the very best ways I know to rid yourself of stress, anxiety and unhappiness. And just about anyone can learn to meditate. There are many ways to bring the peace of meditation into your life.
Some people do use it as part of a religious experience but that is not necessary. Do not let that worry you. You can still enjoy all of the benefits as you do with any other type of exercise.
There is a free Special Report waiting for you. It is called “The Meditation Report: Four Types of Meditation for Peace of Mind.”
