What is Meditation and why is it beneficial to our Health & Well-Being?

 

Meditation has been utilized for thousands of years by various cultures and was recently "reintroduced" into modern Western culture during the past 50 years or so. It has gained quite a bit of popularity in the natural health circle because of its many benefits in reducing stress and achieving well-being. Many Westerners have now adopted a meditation practice as a spiritual and mental tool that is beneficial in many ways in our modern society.

 

Meditation is a practice of "stillness" and "mindfulness", that of "letting go" so that the mind is able to release all thought. For some this is a spiritual journey, for others a way to reduce stress. Some science also views it as a connection with the larger energy field of the universe. Breathing is an integral part of meditation as is learning to let go of all thoughts and distractions. It is slightly different than prayer as the goal is to let go of all thoughts and focus on the deep inner silence of the present. Prayer, mantras, chanting, singing and affirmations can also be part of the meditation process. 

 

Meditation is a process of slowing down the mind & body and letting go of all thoughts that may occupy our mind.  By letting go we achieve a state of awareness that gives us both clarity and peace. We can then carry this with us in our daily lives making our normal experience less stressful and much more meaningful. It has been proven that the daily practice of meditation has many transforming health benefits.  It also brings a sense of understanding, compassion and deeper awareness to people who regularly practice it.

 

How do you practice Meditation?

 

There are many forms of meditation that can be learned.  It is not a difficult practice and one can learn fairly quickly the basic techniques. It does take some practice and discipline to integrate it into your daily life. It is open to all people and all beliefs. Most meditation is done sitting down in a relaxed position. There are also walking forms of meditation. Meditation can be any length, although having at least 15-30 minutes of focused time is ideal. Nature is a great medium for meditation and I encourage people to practice in a quiet natural setting whenever possible. It takes time to quiet the mind and remain in meditation, but there are no rules or time limits as to how you achieve this inner stillness. As you practice meditation you will learn that you can utilize it "on the go" and in quick moments to reduce stress or indecision.
