Meditation is an umbrella term for the many ways to bring yourself into a relaxed state of being. There are many types of meditation and relaxation techniques that have meditation components. All share the same goal of achieving inner peace.
Benefits of Meditation Meditation can be viewed as a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Meditation produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. Regular practice of meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may improve certain medical conditions.
Emotional Freedom Regular meditation clears away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to stress. The possible emotional benefits of meditation include:
• Building inner calm to manage your stress • Gaining a new insight on how to successfully overcome stressful situations • Release of tension from negative emotions • Increased self-awareness • Being fully present in the moment
Support for Healing Illnesses Regular Meditation can contribute to healing from medical conditions, especially ones that may be worsened by stress. While a growing body of scientific research supports the health benefits of meditation, some researchers still believe it is not yet possible to draw conclusions about the medical benefits of meditation.
Yet, there is much promising research and many anecdotal cases that suggests that meditation may help people manage and heal from conditions such as:
• Anxiety disorders
• Asthma • Cancer • Depression • Heart disease • High blood pressure • Pain • Sleep problems
Please remember that meditation is not to be understood as a replacement for traditional medical treatment. It may be useful in supporting the results of your other treatments. Any health improvement activity should be only be undertaken with the full knowledge and consent of your health care provider.
There have been rare reports that meditation could cause or worsen symptoms in people with certain psychiatric problems. People with existing mental health conditions should speak with their healthcare providers before starting a meditative practice, and make their meditation provider aware of their condition. Always consult with your doctor about these matters to determine if Guided Meditation can be appropriate for your medical situation.
Using Guided Meditation for Therapeutic Purposes Guided Meditation is an especially effective meditation practice for achieving fast and effortless results. Guided meditation is also sometimes referred to as guided imagery or visualization.
In this method of meditation, you form mental images of places or situations you find relaxing or work out your deep stress and life challenges by reframing stressful situations from your past. "Guided" refers to having a facilitator, either via a one-on-one treatment sessions or through listening to a meditation recording.
Guided Meditation as therapy can provide a deep, life changing transformation within just a few sessions and then be supported by using recorded meditation sessions on a regular basis afterward to maintain your enhanced peace of mind.
The Benefits of Guided Meditation as a Therapeutic Method The challenge to following a regular meditation practice is to have the discipline to consistently practice on a regular basis. Guided Meditation provides an answer to this challenge in the following manner:
One on one treatment sessions provide the possibility for deep, permanent, change that lasts with active help from the facilitator.
Listening to guided recordings takes the challenge away from having to actively create a meditative state for yourself. All you have to do is just find a quiet place and listen.
