The first reason that comes to my mind, on why to relax through meditation, is that the ability to be present in the moment, “to relax here and now”, beside being useful, is that it makes you feel very, very good.
The sensation of letting go of muscle tension, anxiety, heavy thoughts, and everything else that doesn’t belong of a “being relaxed” state is a wonderful, wonderful experience.
Meditation is, in my opinion, a “No-thinking tool” that can help you create a transition from the ordinary conscious perception of the world into an open mind, a new level of awareness. From there you’ll be able to see, get access and put into use forgotten sub-conscious resources. This new perception of awareness could help you manifest your purposes and fulfill your daily activities in smooth, spontaneous, surprising ways.
Yes. Being able to unwind the mind from the tangle of stress and enter a state of deep relaxation is one of the most important skills you can learn. And meditation can help you in that. Meditation is a “no-thinking state” that will benefit both your physical and mental health as well as making you happier and giving you a sense of having more freedom in your life.
Not only is it possible for everyone to learn how to use meditation fundamentals to relax oneself, but it can be considered as a necessity. To be relaxed means to be fully alive, free from physical and mental tension. It is one of our most fundamental needs. And don’t forget that the ability to “relax when you want to relax” will help you be more productive, not less.
Unfortunately, relaxation is a need that is frequently ignored. And meditation is still view as a “spiritual prayer” that is not meant for daily activities integration or healing purposes. Perhaps not so much ignored as given a low priority. Everything else you have to do comes first, and you never quite get around to find the time to relax into the now, later on.
Even if it doesn’t last too long, relaxation awareness benefits our overall being in many ways. Physically, it recharges and revitalizes us. By allowing muscles to release tension and to stop exertion, relaxation recharges our muscles with fresh energy.
Through meditation we can learn the thinking patterns that will lead us of letting go our muscle’s tension.Â It can bring us a significant pain relief experience ideal for healing or fighting illness. Plus, it is fundamental for the bodyâ€™s healing process to be able to relax easily and effortlessly.
The body is able to generate a new flood of energy when it relaxes completely. Research on the immune system shows that stress depletes our immune function and relaxation restores it.
Relaxation through meditation has numerous mental benefits also. A calm mind has the ability to focus at will, being more clear headed. With the increased attentional capacity that relaxation brings we often feel more able to handle whatever problems we have to face. Somehow, by relaxing through meditation, we feel we have gained more freedom in our lives. In these ways, the ability to meditate is a valuable coping skill for most of lifeâ€™s problems.
One of the easiest ways I’ve found to relax through meditation is with the Centerpointe Holosync system. Just put on your headsets, press play, sit back and listen.
