Meditation is Against My Religion

Meditation is against my religion. Well, o.k. not mine, ( I don’t even have a religion) Although I have heard this from clients. Meditation, although spiritual in nature, has nothing to do with organized religion.  The act of meditation simply means to quiet the mind. I am not quite sure why a church would find this to be a bad plan but… The body needs rest so does the mind. When the chatter in your head that tells you that you need to do more or that your not good enough or anything of that nature finally stops, you have peace of mind. This quiet space allows you to feel the essence of who you are at the deepest level of your being. Now that is good stuff!

When one meditates the brain frequencies slow down. As adults much of our waking hours are spent in the higher brain frequency known as “Beta.” Beta frequencies allow us to access the left hemisphere of our brain. The left side of the brain is the logical side that allows us to reason, manage our time, and things of that nature. When one meditates the brain frequencies lower into “Alpha” or “Theta.” Now this is where the magic happens! These frequencies make it easy to use the right side of the brain. This side is highly creative, intuitive, and receptive. This is why “Hypnosis” works.

Hypnosis seems to be yet another term that scares people. Hypnosis, meditation, and here’s a surprise, RELAXATION are essentially the same things. Yes, that is right, relaxing, consciously relaxing, quieting the chatter of your mind, is hypnosis and it is one form of meditation. So what are you waiting for? Just relax!

Practicing meditation changed my life. It changed my life on a profound level. Meditation supports my health mentally, physically, emotionally ( I am way crabby if my mind doesn’t get a nap), and spiritually.  I am more relaxed and I allow things (things others would judge as bad) to just be. My creativity and intuition have soared and I feel I have an understanding of life and it’s purpose in an entire new light. What could be better than that?
