Why I Love To Meditate
I often find myself meditating at 3 key points of the day. Hydrate yourself frequently throughout the day. I aim for 8-10 glasses of filtered water daily.
- In the morning when I awaken, to feel good and ready to start the day with my clear intentions. I usually like a 10 min meditation.
- In the middle of the day, if I am a bit tired or need an energy boost, usually a 10-15 min meditation.
- At the end of the day, when I need to put my thoughts to rest, I find meditations incredibly powerful to quieten the busy mind and relax at the end of the day. I like to meditate 15-20 mins here.
The incredible power of meditations have always moved me, so I wanted to create my own meditations for myself, my family, friends and clients. Here, I have played and composed the music especially for my meditation, Healing for Thyroid & Adrenal glands.
My meditation will support your Thyroid and Adrenals as well as helping with anxiety, stress reduction and relaxation. I hope you will attain a deeper connection with your body and an openness for self love .♡.
How Meditation Can Help You Focus
Our minds are lost in thought 47 percent of the time, according to researchers at Harvard University. For students, these thoughts regularly stem from two cases: dwelling in the past or worrying about the future. The former can cause sadness and depression, and the latter can produce stress and anxiety. If ignored, the emotions can grow overwhelming.
Meditation can help pull you away from the never-ending “what could’ve been” and “what ifs.”
Researchers at the Columbia University Medical Center claim meditating can change the structure and function of the brain through relaxation, which can:
Reduce stress, anxiety, and depression
Increase focus and learning concentration
Improve memory and attention span
Build stronger immune system and greater physical/psychological resilience
Allow better sleep
Although all forms of meditation aim for a similar goal, certain types are more productive for different people. Some include:
This technique specifically focuses on your breath and observes thoughts as they drift through your mind. The purpose is to simply be aware of how you are feeling, not to become absorbed.
Concentrative fixates on a particular point, whether it is a word, breath, or object. The goal is to release your thoughts and maintain or refocus your attention on that point, preventing your mind from wandering.
Meditation does not always involve quietly sitting still. Slow, repetitive movements, such as through yoga and tai chi, that focus on your breath can be equally effective in relaxing your mind and body.
Meditating doesn’t require reserving a large chunk of your time. Simply saving a few minutes per day has been proven to reduce distractions and increase focus.
As Joe Dispenza describes :
"The purpose of meditation is to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the thinking, analytical mind. What I want you to understand is that you already know how to do this, because you do it every day.
If you can begin your practice with the understanding that all you’re doing is relaxing your body (just like when you’re falling asleep) while keeping your mind conscious and awake—and if you can continuously move deeper into this state of relaxation while focusing on nothing (or not thinking)—you’ve just opened the doorway between the conscious and subconscious mind.
It’s through our meditation practice that we can enter the subconscious and change our unwanted programs. Think of the subconscious as the brain’s operating system. By dropping into the operating system of the brain, we can alter habits, behaviors, and remove emotional scars. If you’re not trying to change anything, you can simply open yourself up to receiving unknown possibilities and create something new.
Like riding a bike or playing tennis, what I want you to understand is relaxing the body yet staying conscious is just a skill to develop (there’s a reason why we call meditation a practice). When you can completely relax your body and remain conscious, this is the realm where the unknown and the mystical happens."
