How can I benefit from Meditation ?

How can I benefit from Meditation ?
What is Meditation all about ?

Today I decided to write a blog about the many amazing benefits of meditation as many of my clients have been asking me what meditation is all about.

There are so many different ways we can meditate, it really doesn’t have to be about sitting for hours in silence which can be extremely time consuming and hard to practice in the world we live in…..and this is really why we DO need meditation .

I teach meditation classes , not just on the mindful practice that meditation is known for , but also looking at guided meditations, chakra awareness , feeling energy for physical healing , Prana  breath work ( to name but a few techniques) .

The world we live in is gettting faster and busier and we need to relearn tools and techniques to allow us to be able to cope in the world.
If we do not counterbalance this fast pace of life that we all live in then we become seriously unbalanced which has a huge effect on our emotional and physical health….by which time it becomes then a colossal task to bring back that balance and it may take us years to overcome this obstacle.

I’m sure you have all heard many times that prevention is better than the cure and if we can approach meditation with this mindset then we are far more likely to achieve a sense of peace and lasting balance with ease.

Did you know that just 20 minutes of meditation nourishes your body in the same way that 4 hours of good sleep does…..so just 10 minutes = 2 hours of sleep.
So if you struggle to sleep then it’s a no brainer …..meditate!

Furthermore, it is relevant to note that  meditation also helps you to achieve a much better quality of sleep. So here is a list of some of the further benefits meditation offers for the MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT ( ENERGY, SOUL );

     MIND BENEFITS OF MEDITATION :
~ reduces monkey chatter
~ improves concentration
~ reduces mental stress
~ refreshes and rejuvenates the mind
~ calms the mind
~ improves thought processing and clarity
~ improves ability to effectively communicate

    BODY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION:
~ reduces anxiety ( stabilises adrenal function)
~ Lowers high blood pressure
~ reduces depression ( improves serotonin)
~ increases immune function
~ reduces tension headaches
~ increases energy levels
~ improves mood swings ( balances the pituitary and increases seratonin )
~ balances pain receptors ( as oxytocin releases )
~ helps insomnia ( by balancing the pineal gland)
~ decrease muscle and joint problems as relaxation improves and stress decreases

     SPIRIT / SOUL / ENERGY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION:
~ creative abilities improve
~ intuition is developed
~ overall sense of peace increased
~ anxiety decreases
~ feelings of connectedness to others increases
~ problems are dealt with easily
~ negative emotions disappear easily
~ harmony and balance is achieved
~ emotions are more balanced
~ ability to live and embrace the moment ( not living in the past or future)
~ focussed awareness
~ expanded state of Consiousness
~ peace of mind

Effortless transition from being something to merging with the infinite and recognizing yourself as an inseparable part of the whole cosmos
In a meditative state, you are in a space of vastness, calmness and joy and this is what you emit into the environment, bringing harmony to the Creation/planet.
Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation. As you learn more about yourself, you’ll naturally start discovering more about yourself.
How to get meditation benefits

So in summary, to experience the benefits of meditation, regular practice is necessary and as you begin it can help if you join a class whilst you practice to share the space.
If you practice at home too …..It takes only a few minutes every day…..once you get into the practice I’m sure (like me ) you will find that meditation is the best part of your day!

Emotions and your health

Emotions and your health.

Today I want to blog about how important it is for us to be aware that we cannot separate our  physical health from our emotional health.  Every single feeling you have affects your body in some way and stressful and negative emotions can really impact on your physical health.

To define stress …this is anything (whether real or imagined) which is perceived as a threat or toxic to the body and how the body reacts to it.

So how does this affect us ? ….well we are all different so for some it may affect the brain chemistry and mental health, for others it affects hormonal balance, blood sugars, immune response, digestive health etc…..

As a meta health practitioner i would always consider emotions when working with physical and mental health conditions with my clients, allopathic medicine still sees physical conditions as caused by something OUTSIDE of the body …and therefore treats this as a pathogen which can be “remedied” with drugs (masking the root) or cutting a part of the body away. As our emotions (and energy but thats another blog!) cannot be seen they are not considered to be a part of the potential for disharmony…..yet ironically G.P’s often cite “You must be stressed” …..before prescribing the pill!

Although we are all different , i often find some common links between certain emotions and pain or disharmony in certain parts f the body.
Some brief examples ; (this is not conclusive just some observations from my clinical work)
~Grief – Often manifests heart issues and when doing energy clearing work i almost always work on the heart meridian and chakras.
~Depression – Often manifests pains in the chest , lungs etc.The governing meridian , lung meridians etc often help with letting go (LU1)
~ Anxiety – Often manifests pains in the brain stem (vagus nerve) and diaphragm and benefits for anxiety are found with central meridians, heart, spleen and kidney which is why E.F.T is one of the fastest methods and i use for all clients who are anxiety sufferers.
~ Guilt – Often manifests in the large intestine and the LI , Central and Governing meridians along with lower root and sacral chakras will almost always need work

When you are feeling emotionally stressed, the body releases stress hormones like cortisol from the adrenals which prepare your body to fight or run from the stressful event.
When you are in this phase the pressure is put onto the organs…for example the heart rate may increase, the lungs need to take in more oxygen, blood flow increases, and therefore the immune system becomes temporarily suppressed, which reduces your response to fighting pathogens.
Long term you can see how this impacts on health.

Clinical trials and studies have shown us that E.F.T and other therapies such as Kinesiology etc can effectively reduce the emotional impact and energetic or biochemical impact of such emotional stresses and once the stress is reduced the body can often rebalance itself, and this facilitates long term healing.
