In today’s world, we are bombarded with negative thoughts from many sources including the internet, tv, radio and newspapers. We start our day unaware of their influence and wonder why we feel low and unhappy as the day progresses. We need to be aware of what we are allowing to enter into our mind. We human beings, have a great ability to choose which thoughts we are going to accept. Indeed, we are masters of our thoughts. There are a number of things we can do to reduce the impact of external sources on our moods. Meditation is one of those things.
Meditation is simple and easy to do with regular, consistent practise. It opens up a treasure of goodness and inner strength. A few minutes (ultimately a minimum of 20 minutes per day) meditation at the start of each day or anytime throughout the day really, helps you to remain positive, calm and serene, even under pressure or what may otherwise be a hectic life. Meditation helps you to appreciate yourself and others more through a deeper connection with one’s self. It also stimulates creativity and inspires solutions. Through meditation, you gain power to erase negative feelings and attitudes, reduce pain and stress and develop a positive, easy nature. Meditation can bring you a whole new perspective on life.
Scientific studies have shown that behavioral components of meditation include relaxation, concentration, an altered state of awareness and a suspension of logical thought. These have been accompanied by a host of biochemical and physical changes in the body that alter metabolism, heart rate, respiration, blood pressure and brain activation. In short, the impact of meditation is very beneficial on one’s health and well-being.
I qualified as a Meditation Instructor from GITA International Yoga in Melbourne and would be delighted to get you started meditating if you haven’t done so before or provide you with assistance if you have tried to meditate and are having issues in doing so. I have also completed the Fundamentals of Teaching Yoga and Meditation in Military Communities through Warriors at Ease, an American Non-Profit organisation supporting the health and resiliency of military communities across the globe.
Further to this, I have completed Level I iRest Teacher Training through the Integrative Restoration Institute. As such, I am an iRest Teacher-in-Training. This training teaches participants a key program called iiRest Yoga Nidra. This is a research-based transformative practice of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry that releases negative emotions and thought patterns; calms the nervous system; and develops a deep capacity to meet any and all circumstances you may encounter in life. Research has shown that iRest Yoga Nidra effectively reduces PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and chemical dependency.
