How Heartfulness Meditation Will Help You Find Balance In Life?

How Heartfulness Meditation Will Help You Find Balance In Life?

It has become rare for a person to stop and admire a beautiful flower. Life has become fast and the human population is distancing itself from nature, and thus from good mental health. Thanks to the increased awareness about mental health in the recent years, many take up meditation regularly.

The benefits of meditation include eradicating stress, handling adversity and even shedding extra pounds. So, what is heartfulness meditation in particular? This is a simple meditation technique that you can practice alongside yoga or spiritual practices to completely relax as it is not related to any specific philosophy. While practicing this form of meditation, you will be encouraged to try and focus on your heart to experience your true self.

Why should you practice heartfulness meditation?
Heartfulness is a type of super-inclusive meditation that is there for more than a century. More than a million people practice the act in more than 100 countries, and this method is growing at a fast pace all across the globe. This tradition is rooted in the Raja Yoga tradition, and it can be practiced in a group or individually. This practice helps in improving the quality of sleep, relieving stress and boosting the immune system. It also helps in bettering the quality of life in multiple ways.

Here are some of the most compelling reasons why you should practice heartfulness meditation.

  1. Helps enhance emotional control: This meditation technique helps in activating the amygdala which is the emotional center of the brain. Hence, it can help you feel calmer, and these benefits are spilled over in our day to day life as well.
  2. Acts as a painkiller: You will be surprised to know that if you practice heartfulness meditation every day, you will experience much less pain. In a study, there were two groups of people where one practiced heartfulness meditation while the other group did not. The one who meditated daily experienced less pain.
  3. Makes you compassionate: One of the most important benefits of heartfulness meditation is that it makes people more sympathetic and virtuous.
  4. Alters Neuro-chemical balance in the brain resulting in more composed and calm emotional state: Meditation is such a fantastic technique that if you can practice it for about 8 months, it will result in a change in the neuro-chemical balance of the brain. 
  5. Leads to an improvement of cognition: A study found that if you meditate daily, you will be able to sustain attention and it will invariably result in boosting your cognition. The level of improvement can range somewhere between 15 and 50 percent and the more you meditate, the better the results.

Simple steps to help you practice heartfulness meditation

  1. Find a comfortable place in your home or a place where you can sit each day and meditate
  2. Make sure you meditate at the same time daily. 
  3. Sit comfortably with your hands and legs in a comfortable position
  4. Focus on your heart and imagine light filling it
  5. Slowly and steadily you will start feeling the vibrations and energy in your body
  6. If your mind wanders here and there try to center it back towards the light in your heart
  7. Practice it daily for 20 minutes 

Moreover, if you are someone belonging to the field of creativity, then heartfulness meditation can reap long-term benefits for you. It not only sharpens concentration but improves your ability to multitask easily. Thus, if you have not indulged in this beneficial act, this is high time to drench in eternal joy and happiness.

After evaluating my all reports like ECG, 2decho, CBC, xray,sugar and cholesterol my doc told me you have stress related issues. I told him I remain restlessness and over think a lot like I am not in a present moment.in my mind I am always thinking something and enjoy that imaginary world created by my mind which of course is not true but I am now addicted to useless thinking rabbit of my mind. Something it thinks of past, sometime future, sometime about lust because of this I am not able to concentrate and focus on any task. Soon I realized that even when I am taking to any person I am physically communicating but my mind is thinking something else. I am feeling as if my mind and body not coordinating properly. I went to a psychiatrist 1 year back he put me on paroxetine for 7 months and I recovered from my anxiety/depression but it again came back. Now I don't want to take that medicines to control my monkey mind and want some psychologists advice .I do not want to take psychiatry medicine which will treat the symptoms for some time but instead want some technique to calm this over thinking mind or restlessness mind. Also I am physically OK so I don't know the exact cause of my bp .but one thing I know from my childhood I was like ADHD type of person, who developed anxiety or stress problem latter on. My psychiatry told me you are an anxious person and also depressed. I said how can be an anxious person depressed because I was a kind of person who was always thinking about I should study hard, should get good marks, and should find good job. Also I can a lot of fear deep in my mind. Now I have lack of interest in earning and doing job. please help. If possible give me some suggestion/advice to overcome this negative emotions of mind and also hypertension without medicines as I don't want to be in this vicious cycle of stress, anxiety, depression, worry. please give me some psychologists advice and not a psychiatry medicines as I know medicine will only give me some symptomatic relief & not a permanent cure.
