Does Meditation Really Work?

By ric dalberri

What happens when society is introduced to something new? It’s a fad, new religion, for baby boomers it was ‘far out man’. Yes, many new thoughts and religions have come and gone. Some have stayed. Meditation surely has endured the test of time. It is a common practice that produces incredible results.

So, what are the reasons meditation has lasted so long? It’s great benefits it has on our everyday lifestyle. Do you have to go to some class or visit a gura? NO! Let’s look at some of the benefits you can reap.

. Meditation calls for calming the mind. So, in essence, meditation has a calming effect on the entire body. You bring your thoughts to a standstill so you can address your anxiety and see a solution to your issue.

. Once you can focus on the calm, you create the atmosphere that’s needed to focus on issues that need clarity. Remember that the thoughts that are clouding you are thoughts you alone put there. Whether outside influences helped you put that thought there or not, you put them there.

. Now what? You have these thoughts and anxieties that are causing you stress (not good stress). Meditation helps clear the thoughts and will help in solving your decisions.

. Meditation is so powerful it can help reduce physical stress. You must set aside time to be in a quiet place. You will learn deep breathing to help blood flow to the brain so oxygen can give your cells more energy. This will help throughout your body. Your tissues, muscles, etc. To help expel unwanted anxiety.

. Sleep. Guess what? You will sleep better as a result of mediation. You will digest and process your food better. Remember, deep breathing & meditation helps all area’s of your being. You will also recoup from any symptoms of an illness faster as well.

Too often we have seen on public television individuals who have come out of the baby boomers generation to advocate meditation and it’s effects on our bodies. There are DVD’s, sound tracts and the like to help you start your mediation process.

You really can do meditation on your own without DVD’s, CD’s or spa music. Find a quiet spot where you will have interruptions. Sit, lay quietly. It does not have to be in a yoga position (s). Quiet your thoughts with or without a c.D. Do deep breathing. Relax and quiet your thoughts. It’s simple, free, and life & health changing.

Many good things have come from the baby boomer generation. Although mediation is centuries old, baby boomers have helped continue this eastern philosophy. Now get started today.
