The Benefits of MeditationMar 29, 2021
Meditation is a great way to unblock your chakras or energy centers. Not only has meditation been scientifically proven to reduce stress, but it also has been proven to increase your brain cells. Yes, you read it correctly! According to a large number of studies regarding meditation, there is increasing evidence identifying neural growth in “multiple brain regions”, thus suggesting that the effects of meditation might involve large-scale brain networks.
These areas of the brains are the regions involving:
- Attention control (the anterior cingulate cortex and the striatum)
- Emotional regulation (multiple prefrontal regions, limbic regions and the striatum)
- Self-awareness (the insula, medial prefrontal cortex and posterior cingulate cortex and precuneus)
What can emotional regulation do for you? It means you are not derailed by common and/or daily challenges such as:
- Getting annoyed by your co-workers, your spouse, or your kids
- Stories in the news
- Winning or losing at the games
- Conflicts with others
- Staying calm in the midst of an argument
- Your financial ups and downs
- The opinions of others
- What your parents think about you
- Random hiccups of life
- Your age
- What you look like
Imagine having a brain with an increased ability to master all those challenges of life, and thus preventing them from jeopardizing your happiness. You’ll be able to control your emotions instead of your emotions controlling you. Imagine how relaxing that will be!
When your emotions are disturbed, those parts of your brain are off limits to be used by you when you need them for making the best decision possible. When you are able to control your emotions then those parts of your brain are freed up so you can run your life more smoothly and wisely.
Quotes from Dr. Bruce Lipton’s Book: The Biology of Belief
“Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. Therefore, if we really want to observe ourselves and find out what we are, we are really beings of energy and vibration, radiating our own unique energy signature -this is fact and is what quantum physics has shown us time and time again. We are much more than what we perceive ourselves to be, and it’s time we begin to see ourselves in that light. If you observed the composition of an atom with a microscope you would see a small, invisible tornado-like vortex, with a number of infinitely small energy vortices called quarks and photons. These are what make up the structure of the atom. As you focused in closer and closer on the structure of the atom, you would see nothing, you would observe a physical void. The atom has no physical structure, we have no physical structure, physical things really don’t have any physical structure! Atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter.”
“Get over it and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual” – Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University (quote taken from “the mental universe “)
Thoughts are things that can influence outcomes.
Our influence via Energy was discovered in 1803 with the double slit experiment (this is a link to the YouTube video). It proves that we are directly able to influence the world with our consciousness. How was this proven? The outcome of the experiment was dependent upon whether or not there was an observer. It was found that the presence of an observer influenced the results because energy was measured in waves with no observer, while only energy particles where measured when the observer was present.
Why is the Double Slit Experiment important? Because it sheds light on the outcome of all scientific experiments! Have you noticed the numerous conflicting studies out there about medication and treatments in healthcare? The Double Slit Experiment proves that every single science experiment conducted using the standard scientific method with the assumption that variables can be controlled is false because the scientist’s energy is influencing the outcome at an energetic level and unconsciously to the scientist!
What does this have to do with our health? Well, if thought are things then if you think healthy thoughts you will stay healthy. Therefore, if you think unhealthy thoughts then you will become and stay unhealthy until your mindset is changed. Believe it or not, just like Jesus said, “If your belief is like a mustard seed, you can move mountains.” Therefore, my friends, think healthy thoughts and meditate daily!
