Meditation for Everyday Living

Meditation can improve the quality of your life and the quantity of your life. It can also work in all areas of your life - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

You have the ability to create what you think. Your mind is a powerful tool but, at the subconscious level, your mind cannot distinguish the difference between fact and fiction. So, just as stress or negative thought can create illness and disease, meditation when used positively, can alleviate health complaints or emotional and mental disorders.

Holistic Benefits

On the physical level, it can relieve a diverse range of health complaints, from phobias, high blood pressure and allergies to muscular tension, pain intolerance and severe forms of stress. It can also increase your energy levels and performance.

Emotionally, you can gain greater inner peace through meditation, learning how to accept your limitations and focus more positively on your strengths. Meditation can alleviate guilt and negativity, and allow people to love themselves and others.

Meditation can also mental anxiety regardless of the cause by breaking the stress cycle.

And spiritually, meditation can help you find peace of mind and a deep level of inner calm. And, if you have any firm religious beliefs, meditation can greatly enhance your appreciation of them.

"Even as a tree has a single trunk but many branches and leaves,
there is one religion - human religion - but any number of faiths."
Mahatma Gandhi

Different forms of Meditation

It has been practiced in the East for around five thousand years, but more recently in the West, we have explored new and interesting ways of making meditation more accessible to everyone.

Of the many schools of Eastern thought, the common foundation for meditation is profound breathing. Breathing complements the physical movements in Tai Chi from China; the focus on objects, such as a candle or a mandala, in Zen Buddhism; and for devotees of Transcendental Meditation, the chanting of a personal prayer or mantra. Whichever practice is followed, the aim is to still the mind by thinking of nothing.

The only problem is that these profound forms of meditation can take up to 20 years to master. One of the main reasons is because emptying the mind of all thought is extremely difficult to achieve because our minds are complex and dynamic. Even when we're asleep, we're usually processing thoughts or dreaming.

Meanwell Meditation is based on the Western approach which combines meditation with visualization. We have developed a number of simple journeys to places that you create in your mind or draw from your memory. You own them, you control the thoughts in your mind and, with that, you can control your future.

In these special places, you have the ability to work on any area in your life. Our meditation exercises include techniques to help you lift self esteem, set goals, solve problems and maintain a sound body and mind.

Where and when to Meditate

Like the act of meditation itself, there are many positions you can use when meditating, such as the traditional Lotus Position used in Yoga.

Whichever position you adopt, there should be a level of discomfort, so you get the most out of the session. That's why we recommend that you sit in a straight-back chair rather than lie on a bed. This way, hopefully you won't fall asleep during the exercise.

We also recommend that you make a special place to meditate - a spare bedroom or the corner of a room where you practice these exercises regularly. You will find it easier to get to a deep level of relaxation if you choose the same environment and roughly the same time of day or night.

To improve your quality of life, we recommend meditating for around 20 minutes two or three times a day. To improve the quantity of your life, you should meditate three times a day for around an hour each time.

Given that most of us lead busy lives, the most ideal way to stay focused and at peace is to meditate when you first wake up to set yourself up for the day ahead, and when you are ready to go to sleep, so you can allow your body and mind to relax and also process the day's events.

If you continue to meditate everyday, you will be amazed at the progress you make in just a few weeks or months toward a more happier, fulfilled and healthier life.
