Meditation is a key facet of many spiritual practices, and has been well known as a positive practice for mental, spiritual and physical health for many years.
Often portrayed by the media as a pastime only for monks, hippies and psychics, meditation is actually entering the mainstream and becoming something that anyone can try, filtering into the West from ancient Eastern traditions over the course of the last 50 years. The lineage of the Modern Mystery School, which has practiced spiritual meditation since the time of King Saloman, is delighted that this practice has found widespread acceptance, and we know that this is just more evidence that humankind is spiritually evolving and entering a new age! In this new spiritual age, meditation will be more important than ever.
Thanks to its many visible benefits, it is even recommended and prescribed by doctors and physicians as a form of therapy and an aid to healing, helping their patients to recover from any ailment. But what are the benefits of meditation? What makes this practice so spiritually important?
- Meditation is for everyone
Meditation isn’t just for old wise men sitting on top of mountains – it is something that anyone can do! If you have even five minutes free per day, then you can start to practice meditation and see the benefits in your own life.
- Increased mindfulness affects every part of your life
Mindfulness – the state of being in the moment physically, mentally and spiritually – is something that meditation promotes, and the more experienced you become, the more mindful you will be. Mindfulness expands our experience of time and ensures we think fully about what we are doing at all times, bringing greater focus into our lives and giving us more control over our emotions and reactions. If you have ever wanted more control over your feelings, or more power to affect change in your own life, meditation can help provide that power.
- Meditation has incredible physical effects
In a study by Massachusetts General Hospital, regular meditation reduced the blood pressure of between 40% and 60% high blood pressure patients, and other studies have shown it to be effective in boosting the immune system and preventing age-related brain diseases like dementia. These are just a few of the physical benefits of meditation – there are many more!
What is the best way to meditate?
There are many kinds of meditation, including the mantra meditation of monks and holy men, the breath control meditation taught in conjunction with yoga and the simple mindfulness experienced when running or performing other simple tasks mindfully.
However, the most effective system of meditation ever devised was put together from a combination of meditation techniques learned from wise spiritualists in India and Tibet, incorporating aspects of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and modern psychological knowledge to create a meditation system that is more effective in producing focus, well-being and inner calm than any that came before it.
