Meditation, Mindfulness and the Breath
Meditation is not only taking time to sit quietly. It can take many different forms.
Some of my favourite are sitting watching the ocean, walking on the beach and through a forest. Other activities that can be considered a meditation are gardening, walking, swimming, running, yoga, exercising, reading, just to name a few. In these activities we often become trance like.
Meditation, mindfulness and the use of the breath can be used across all parts of our lives. As we are continually evolving, changing and growing over the days, weeks and years, often we forget about ourselves as life gets busy and we tend to put others first- family and friends and even work. So this becomes the norm! Then slowly we don’t feel fulfilled in our lives, we don’t feel “happy”.
The meditation sessions I hold are a combination of Mindfulness Breathing and visualization. Mindfulness Breathing is to bring you into the moment, be present, to leave everything else in your car and to take time for you. The visualization then helps us to take time to listen to our subconscious (not our conscious thoughts) and to tap into ourselves again.
When we commit to meditation (in which ever form we are comfortable with) it not only effects the chemistry of our own thoughts and feelings, but it can also affect those around us. As we practice meditation the energy builds within us and we become happier and more peaceful. This then has a flow on effect to everything around us and our lives become happier.
WARNING: MEDITATION HAS SIDE EFFECTS!
Meditation effects our relaxation response; which then reduces daily stress and helps us to achieve mental and physical relaxation. IE: clarity, concentration, awareness, lower heart rate and blood pressure, improved immune system among others. In life we become happier and don’t react quickly to situations. In the work place we become more efficient and happier. It helps us to slow down, take the time to savor the moment, life, family, work and everything around us. It helps us in so many ways.
