Benefits of Meditation

Just found an interesting article with the results of different studies on meditation. I’m still mastering the art of meditation, yet I already had magical experiences.

Meditation helps in finding peace, balance and harmony and sometimes even heal the body, as they’re all one.

Individuals regularly practicing meditation emit gamma waves, which are the highest frequency and most important brain waves.

Buddhist monks can emit heat in a state of deep meditation while in a room with 4 degrees Celsius (40 degrees Fahrenheit) and draped in sheets that were soaked in cold water.

Buddhists feel the reality we live in is not the ultimate one. There’s another reality we can tap into that’s unaffected by our emotions, by our everyday world. Buddhists believe this state of mind can be achieved by doing good for others and by meditation.

Replay happy events of your past

I’m naturally very positive and optimistic person (or at least try to be most of the time:) and have read all types of material and doing all kinds of practices related to self-development. However, from time to time when I’m busy doing something rather routine, my brain goes into an auto-pilot mode, takes a negative direction and replays events in my mind that I would rather not remember.

The moment you realize this ‘negative’ movie from the past is on, it is usually too late to turn it off. It looks like the brain searches for similar unpleasant events and shows them at a speed that could really make Google jealous.

Then I got a hint from a sentence I read in the book – “Happy people focus on happy events”. This sounds like a great habit to introduce to the daily routine – Each day to remember one happy event of the past.

If we must return to the past, why not make it positive? And, by the law of attraction, the brain should get used to replaying more of those events in the future.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” ~ John Quincy Adams
