What is Meditation?

Meditation is relaxation.  It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration.  It’s not about focusing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless.

What are the benefits of meditation?

  • A calm mind
  • Good concentration
  • Better clarity
  • Improved communication
  • Relaxation and rejuvenation of the mind and body

11 Mental Benefits of Meditation

Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an Alpha state that promotes healing.  The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. It cleanses and nourishes you from within and calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down.  With regular practice of meditation:

  1.  Anxiety decreases
  2.  Emotional stability improves
  3.  Creativity increases
  4.  Happiness increases
  5.  Intuition develops
  6.  Gain clarity and peace of mind
  7.  Problems become smaller
  8.  Meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus and expands through relaxation
  9.  A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration
  10.  An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress
  11.  The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection

Meditation makes you aware – that your inner attitude determines your happiness.
