People have been practicing meditation for centuries. Today we see a surge in its popularity as new benefits continue to be discovered. Meditation has been proven to benefit both our bodies and minds. Many are now realizing an additional advantage â€” the tremendous benefits spiritual meditation has for our soul.
Benefits of Meditation for the Body
Medical doctors have documented the harmful effects of stress on our physical health. During meditation our body is relaxed and our stress and tensions are relieved. Studies show that in meditation brain waves function at a frequency of 4â€”10 hertz, giving us a sensation of peace and total relaxation. These states have been proven to help the body in many ways, including improved sleep patterns, lower blood pressure, enhanced immune and digestive systems, and a reduced sensation of pain. When we practice Jyoti and Shabd meditation, these benefits come as a natural by-product.
Benefits of Meditation for the Mind
During the day our mind is filled with thoughts. When we sit for meditation and focus our attention at the seat of the soul, the third eye, we begin to quiet the mind. We become at peace with ourselves and are not bothered by the problems around us. By meditating regularly, we develop sustained concentration. This increase in concentration coupled with reduced stress and tension, renewed energy, and improved relationships, helps us achieve success in our worldly activities. We become more efficient and productive and are better equipped to deal with lifeâ€™s challenges.
