To me meditation is a state of awareness where you experience a deep sense of peace and calm, enabling you to fulfill your true human potential with an inner transformation that takes you to a higher level of awareness. You do not have to sit cross legged with your hands in a mudra position, you can easily just be sitting and allowing your body and mind to relax.
The word meditation, is derived from two Latin words : meditari (to think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind) and mederi (to heal). Its Sanskrit derivation ‘medha’ means wisdom.
There are various forms of meditation including Mindfulness, Zen, Yoga and many more though I like to use Guided meditation.
Guided meditation is one of the easiest meditations to use especially if you have never tried it before. It fits into today’s busy lifestyle where we don’t have the time to sit for hours everyday trying to still our minds to obtain that sense of peace and fulfillment. Being guided stops the eternal chatter of your mind that often occurs when trying not to think of anything. It takes you on a journey by giving the left side of your brain something to do while allowing the right side of your brain to create new ideas that increase your productivity or tap into your higher knowledge to transform your life.
How can Guided Meditation help me?
The journey in guided meditation can be one of self-discovery, help improve sleep, reduce rumination (worry, negative self-talk and regret), stress reduction, improved immune system response, less emotional reactivity, improved overall well being, more focused and much more besides.
The beauty of meditation is that there is science behind it and it has been shown to decrease blood pressure, improve concentration (especially in children), be more social, reduce anxiety and much more if you look at the studies online.
What else do I need to know?
Meditation is non-religious and can be done by anyone no matter what age or what background you come from.
I run regular meditation evenings and mornings at my therapy room in Dartford and it is £5 for 45 minutes of relaxation from everyday life.
I also give talks and a guided mediation to groups as I believe everyone should be meditating especially for their health.
