What is the Significance of Learning to Meditate and How Does it Help
Meditation is a practice that has been used for centuries. It is in essence a simple practice yet it can feel challenging and uncomfortable when first starting. However, meditation is an important practice that improves the quality of our lives. Whether it's to reduce stress or to improve mental clarity, meditation helps us think more clearly and live more fully.
The benefits of meditation are wide-ranging, but these are some of the most commonly cited:
- Studies have shown that regular meditation decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease, lowers blood pressure, and reduces anxiety and depression.
- It is shown to slow down our heart rates, helps to improve memory recall and concentration levels, improve your immune system, and reduce cortisol levels in the blood.
- Meditation can also improve your cognitive abilities and help you to be more mindful.
- Those who meditate regularly also report a greater sense of self-awareness, self-compassion, and emotional stability.
- The benefits of meditation are undeniable, on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
Meditation practice is in essence so simple, and yet it seems to be challenging for many to commit to. There are many who do not enjoy it because it is hard to focus in silence and be confronted with our busy minds. And yet, there is a beautiful way to support yourself going deeper into this inner silence, by using the powerful vibrational support of sacred sound, through your mantra practice.
The mantra is used to focus the mind, and yet it opens the door to deep relaxation and a quietening of the mind at the same time. By using the mantras to navigate our journey inwards, we have a tool that offers a way to bypass the thinking mind and easily and quickly dive into deeper layers of our being.
The power of this type of meditation can be felt in our day-to-day lives when we find ourselves experiencing stressful or challenging moments. It can be done anywhere, anytime for as little as five minutes or much more, depending on how much time you have on hand.
