What is meditation?
Meditation is a tool, a practice allowing us to build a skill of being mindful, a basic human ability to be present. It allows us to experience the current moment, where and how we are, free from distractions, expectations or judgments.
During meditation we are teaching our mind to be present and as we learn to experience this state during meditation, we can start applying it to everyday life.
Meditation is like exploring, getting to know ourselves a bit more rather than trying to reach a fixed destination and be certain way. Regular meditation practice shows us the inner patterns of our mental, emotional, and physical processes.
Becoming aware of the thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them comes so helpful in life, particularly when faced with challenging circumstances or difficult situations. Many of us may find ourselves being challenged a lot by the current situation.
Mindfulness does not eliminate stress or other unpleasant thoughts, emotions, but by simply becoming aware of them we have more choice in how we handle them, it allows us to be more thoughtful in how we want to respond. More awareness and choice mean more freedom.
What are the benefits?
There’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be focused and mindful, you’re actually, literally re-modelling the physical structure of your brain by creating new neural pathways.
Regular meditation practice lights up parts of our brains that aren’t normally activated when we’re mindlessly running on autopilot.
We literally rewire our brain towards more positive thoughts and emotions. Lower level of stress, frustration or anger, heightened level of happiness, patience, acceptance, and compassion promote health and well-being.
