Meditation is Good For You!

 

Meditation is Good For You!

No matter how many methods to achieve relaxation, greater health, improved memory, etc., meditation works! 

Over the last 30 years, the scientific community has become increasingly interested in the measurable effects of meditation on the physical and psychological aspects of the human being. While many long-term meditators are convinced of the benefits based on their own personal, subjective experience, there is something to be said in our modern, rationally oriented culture about having the benefits of meditation practice confirmed by the scientific method.

To date, more than 1000 peer-reviewed scientific articles have been published on the effects of meditation. Until the recent revelations within the field of neuroscience, most of these studies have observed correlations between meditation and reduction in stress, anxiety, and illness of one kind or another. Current research, however, is focusing directly upon the brain and showing how meditation affects neurobiological changes in the human organism.

After several decades of experimentally rigorous research, scientists have discovered demonstrated measurable effects in several key areas:

Health benefits

  • Increased relaxation
  • Reduction of high blood pressure
  • Reduction of high cholesterol levels
  • Slowing down of the aging process
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Reduced illness, costs of medication, and frequency of doctor's visits
  • Measurable help in working with drug and alcohol addiction
  • Interpersonal benefits
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Increased calmness
  • Decreased depression
  • Increased personal development, productivity, and satisfaction

Psychological benefits

  • Better use of brain functioning
  • Improved memory
  • Increased EEG coherence
  • Increased IQ and other intelligence-based measures

Meditation is a method for synchronizing body and mind in the present moment. When our body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware. In this way, meditation can provide physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits.

There are many great books and cd's on meditation for beginners, and far too many to list.  Go ahead, make it your practice!

"..More Than a Drowning Man Wants Air"

“You have to want freedom/peace, more than a drowning man wants air.” Lester Levenson.

The drowning man is our own mind, so certain that it knows how to get us out of this or that problem. It won’t give up. It believes our life depends on it. It is flailing in the water, using all of its strength, to find the way out and get air. Of course it will be exhausted soon, and unhappiness will continue, just like drowning. Are you courageous and try the counter-intuitive action?  You have to be willing to surrender and trust that you will ‘float’, and be lifted up by life/water itself.  In that trust, you declare your love for freedom. Let freedom send you all of your answers in due time.

Clues that you may be the drowning man wanting air more that freedom: busy, speedy/racing, overwhelmed, thinking, ‘should’s and to do’ lists, the need to get away, avoiding others, all work and no play, isolated.

Love,

Karyn

Fear of Death is a Powerful Feeling

The Fear of Death is quite a powerful feeling – we react quickly to it and guard ourselves, pushing the feeling away.  It feels as if a giant hawk has grabbed you in the mid-back and has you gripped, firmly in its clutches.  It feels like a constant fight, as we run through life, never feeling we have done enough or have experienced enough – so that death never feels welcomed.

We have never had ‘enough time’.  

We just are NOT ready.

Yet the answer is to stop running.

Stop imagining the pressure you think you are under.

Turn around and notice . . . you have wings!

You are imagining your tormentor.

Stop and face these futile feelings once and for all.

It’s nothing but illusion.

Love,

Karyn

Why Don't We Feel Whole and Accepting?

Wanting things, having goals to achieve is often about chasing a feeling of pride and what we think will be self-fulfilling. Yet that feeling of having and therefore feeling full, complete, at peace is something we can achieve with mastery, without the seeking and efforting required to actually obtain that item or goal.  

Why are we not feeling whole and self-accepting already?  

We are fooled by these strong urges and motivations that promise happiness when the goal is fulfilled.  Yes we do feel thrilled when we get ‘the car’, ‘the house’ etc, but how long does that fill you up?  

True happiness is already here, but covered up by these strong and tempting promissory urges and feelings.

Do yourself a favour and make life easier by simply mastering your emotions and living in the feelings of acceptance .  As you flow through life, already feeling complete, the irony is that the abundance of ‘things’ shows up naturally.  How lovely, even if it is no longer necessary in order to brighten your day!

Love,

Karyn

Slow Down, Take In Life

“Wanting to know, wanting to figure things out” . . . the mind is very busy because we are often not grounded in trust. The directions and steps to take as life unfolds occur in natural intuitive ways.  Instead we are often impatient and our inability to accept those signs gracefully, leads to the repetition of past analysis and thinking which is then projected into the next moment. We are trapped by the past this way.

Slowing down to listen and take in life with patience, (which is indeed a virtue), leads to a sense of harmony and an increasing trust that “all is well, and everything is unfolding as it should”, as Lester Levenson would say.

 

Slow Down, Listen, and Take in Life!

 

Love,

Karyn
