Everyone has meditated on some level at some point in their lives whether they know it or not.
Prayer, daydreaming, lost thoughts, these are all very light forms of meditation. Deep meditation, however, can completely change your life. There is not a star in Hollywood who doesn’t swear by meditation these days.
Priests meditate. Everyone is now meditating.
Holosync is a very easy to use meditation tool, especially for beginners.
It allows you to meditate more deeply than with other guided meditations.
It can help to eliminate stress.
It helps stimulate the brain and be more productive when you are awake.
It is great for those who wish to go into a deep meditative state.
Holosync uses binaural beats which is a form of brain entrainment (see below).
Healing The Body
There are many studies that have shown how the power of meditation can even heal your body.
There are even specific guided meditations created just to heal your body when are sick.
There have been many findings on the connection between the mind and body for healing including the book, The Biology of Belief, by Dr. Bruce Lipton.
Brainwave Entrainment is another form of meditation that uses sound, and sometimes light waves, to stimulate the brain.
This helps to train your brain to work on a different frequency then what it is currently operating on.
You should be careful using this technique however if you are prone to seizures.
Brainwave entrainment is a great way to enter the meditative state without having to practice different meditation techniques. I’ve included this video on the website so you can try this tool for yourself.
How Meditation Effects The Brain
Your brain is like a supercomputer. Only it never gets shut off. There is no re-boot. There is no reset. It runs 24 hours a day 7 days a week for your entire life.
That’s a lot of running time!
Meditation allows you to calm your brain even if it is only for moments at a time.
It is during this calm or slow time for your brain that you can put things in focus or receive clarity.
This allows you to reduce stress and be more productive as well.
The easiest way to meditate is to sit in a chair with your feet on the floor and your hands in your lap.
Next, close your eyes and take a deep breath in and a long breath out. Repeat this over and over as you start to relax.
Next, try to think of nothing. This can mean different things to different people.
As thoughts start to come into your mind simple put them in a mental box and save them for later.
If you are having trouble with this, you can try to focus on simple breathing in and out as you feel comfortable.
Start with just 5 minutes and then add time to that each day until you can build your meditation practice. In the beginning, you may find you fall asleep during meditation.
That is ok!
It is just your brain learning this technique. In time, you will be able to meditate without falling asleep.
Technically, you don’t need anything to meditate. However, there are some amazing tools you can use to help you.
You can easily find guided meditations online to help you get into a deep meditative state or heal specific areas of your life.
Meditation cushions can help you to clear out a safe space for you to meditate.
There are also many online communities that can help give you access to other people who meditate and can recommend different resources to you as you have questions.
