Meditation Take The Power Seat

Meditation - Take The Power Seat

Some archaeologists date meditation back to as early as 5,000 BCE, according to Psychology Today, the oldest documented text of meditation is also from India, from the Hindu traditions of Vendatism, from around 1500 BCE.

There is a reason this ancient practice has stood the test of time.

It works.

Research shows that meditation is a simple, powerful, tool that is both affordable and accessible and supports you to improve your relationship with yourself, your health, and ultimately your overall sense of wellness, heightening your most valuable assets time and energy.

Small steps taken often create sustainable change.

You feel happier.

Guided meditation supports you create a heightened sense of happiness, naturally.

To stop, disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself. Gifting you the opportunity to become present, witness your thoughts, your busy mind, what distracts you, and in your awareness, decipher perception from the truth.

Awareness brings realisation, realisation causes you to see, to bring in light, to enlighten.

Through awareness of your thoughts, you have the choice to change them, to move back into the power seat, and focus your mind on solution thinking and positive creation.

Research shows your brain is capable of creating measurable changes in your neurochemistry:

- Serotonin levels improve regulating mood, social behavior, appetite, sleep, memory, and more.
- Brain Alpha wave activity increases which is associated with relaxation.
- Self-regulation of Dopamine is shown to improve, which regulates your reward system and is associated with addiction.
- Cortisol the stress hormone, is reduced. When your levels are continuously too high for too long can lead to inflammation and weight gain.

What you think today, creates your tomorrow.

Your emotional health improves.

Guided Meditation can also improve your emotional health as Gaba- aminobutyric acid increases which counteracts anxiety, and norepinephrine, or adrenaline, decreases which means there are fewer stress hormones in your system.

Your ability to be more present supports you to become more aware of your emotions and move through them so that they don't overwhelm you.

Your focus increases.

When you're guided through a meditation, your focus increases, supporting you to improve your ability to be present and concentrate on a task, improving your effectiveness and productivity.

You become more creative.

As your busy mind quietens, it creates space for you to leverage one of your most valuable assets time and energy, as your intuition heightens you will be amazed how the answers to seemingly unsolvable problems, creative solutions, and ideas just pop in.

You become more self-aware.

It’s an excellent way to increase self-awareness, you can learn about yourself in ways that aren't just superficial or surface level.

Your body tells you everything you need to know if you are listening. Your heart picks up information seven seconds before your brain, and you will notice the way your body feels when it contracts in relation to a situation or becomes anxious even when your mind tells you everything is Ok.

With your heart as your compass, you experience the most profitable path to happiness and fulfillment.

You want to be kinder to others.

Guided meditation is an excellent way to improve your ability to be kinder and more compassionate to yourself, which in turn infuses positive vibes to others.

It heightens your senses and your ability to be aware of others' feelings or actions so you can respond with less judgment and more understanding.

When you hold yourself in high esteem, you are more likely to choose things that nurture your well-being.

You'll learn what aspects of your life are important to you and why they're important.

You'll be able to become more aware of how others affect your moods and feelings as well as how certain situations affect them (and vice versa). This will allow for better interactions with others in all areas of life!

Guided meditations are often used by therapists in their clinical practice as part of their treatment plans for patients. Giving patients a tool to use to support them to cope better with life in the comfort of their own homes.
