Individuals struggling with chronic pain or other medical conditions can use healing meditation to feel better in both body and spirit. Some report dramatic results from healing meditation, even though others simply appreciate the reduction in stress that comes from sitting quietly and focusing on the mind.

 

Guided meditation for healing is a great means to release the stress that accumulates in mind as well as the tensions that build up in the body. One of several reasons that the guided healing meditation is particularly successful is that you can merely relax. The only thing you have to do is decide to stay focused. 

 

Whilst healing meditation hasn't been proven to treat specific ailments, patients/clients report that it can be helpful when used alongside more conventional treatments. An healing meditation can help decrease stress, for one thing, which can potentially cause optimistic changes in your body.

 

Routine healing meditations can help relieve stress, improve your ability to focus and lead to far better understanding of your personal thought patterns and processes. Some men and women today use healing meditation to increase creativity, lessen chronic pain, treat headaches and even improve athletic performance.

 

The tradition of self-healing meditation is simply this: resting your mind in quiet and distance, allowing it time for you to recover and rejuvenate. Healing meditation does not mean sitting in a perfect state of calmness while having no thoughts. Meditation for healing is all about establishing a distinct relationship with your thoughts.

 

If relaxation is not the end goal of healing meditation; it is always the byproduct at a bare minimum. In the 1970’s, Herbert Benson, MD, a researcher at Harvard University Medical School, coined the term "relaxation response" immediately after conducting research on those that practiced transcendental meditation. The relaxation response, is an opposite, involuntary response that causes a reduction of pressure/stress within their sympathetic nervous system.

 

Since that time, reports on the relaxation response have documented the following short-term advantages to the nervous system:

 

Reduced Blood-pressure

Increased Blood Circulation

Lower Coronary Heart Rate

Less Perspiration

Slower Respiratory Rate

Less Overall Stress

Reduced Blood Cortisol Levels

Feelings Of Well-being

 

In Buddhist philosophy, the ultimate benefit of healing meditation is liberation of their mind from attachment to things it cannot control. The liberated or enlightened no longer wants or clings to experiences; but instead maintains a calm mind and sense of inner harmony.

 

Below is a quick method explaining how to do healing meditation:

 

Sit or lie comfortably. 

You may even desire to invest in a meditation chair or cushion.

Close your eyes. 

Make no effort to control the breath…simply breathe naturally.

Concentrate on your breath and on your body with every inhalation and exhalation. 

Notice the movement of your body while you breathe. 

Relax your chest, shoulders, rib cage, along with your stomach. 

Focus on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. 

If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.

Do this meditation for 2 to 3 minutes to start; and then try it for longer periods.

 

There are various other healing meditation tactics. For example, an everyday healing meditation practice among Buddhist monks focuses directly on the cultivation of compassion. This involves envisioning negative events and recasting them in a certain light by transforming them through compassion.

Healing meditation is a way to train the human mind in the same way that fitness is an approach to training the body. Healing meditation encourages you to observe wandering thoughts as they drift past your mind. The intention is to not get involved with all the thoughts or even to evaluate them; but rather to make note of each thought as it arises.

 

When you meditate, you can see how your thoughts and feelings go in particular patterns. Healing meditation can wipe away depression, bringing with it inner peace. Healing meditation does not involve pushing away negative thoughts or pretending you never have them. Instead, you notice and accept them and then peacefully let them go.

 

Stress is a main trigger for depression and healing meditation can alter your reaction to all of those feelings. Healing meditation trains the brain to hold sustained attention and also to return to that attention when negative thinking, emotions, and bodily sensations intrude. Healing meditation was found to change certain brain regions that are specifically linked with depression.

 

Healing meditation can also help prepare the brain for stressful situations. For example, meditating for a few moments before a doctor's appointment or social situation can help alter the brain and body out of this stress response and into a state of relative calm.

 

Men and women who meditate often report improvements physically, mentally and spiritually. To begin a healing meditation practice, you need to find a peaceful location, far from the phone, television, friends, family members as well as any other distractions. You'll find there are a number of different techniques to meditate. Give Breathing Back To You a call and start your Healing Meditation journey today!
