Three Benefits of Meditation

Learning to meditate can bring profound change into your life.  There are many ways that meditation can benefit you.  Physically, mentally, and emotionally, there are reasons to learn meditation.  Here are three excellent reasons to get started.

1) Stress Reduction/Peace – Scientists have shown that when meditating, brain activity is shifted from the right frontal cortex, which is prone to stress, to the more peaceful left frontal cortex.  Fear, anxiety, stress, and other negative thoughts and emotions have less impact while the mind is focused in this region.    We all deal with way too much stress in our daily lives, and having a way to release that stress is very important.  How many times have you finished at work, only to carry the stress of your job home to your family and even into your sleep?

2) Physical Benefits – Meditation also gives us more energy, better sleep, and better concentration in our daily lives.  By taking the time to tune in, focus, and relax, we bring more higher-quality energy into our bodies and release tensions that we would normally continue to carry with us.  Meditation also helps create better immunity to sickness, as the body is less prone to negative lingering stress.  Our emotional/mental states can have a powerful effect on our health, and meditation allows us to use that to our advantage.

3) Balance – Meditation helps us to balance our physical, mental and emotional states.  This balance allows us to interact with the world around us in a better way that we are used to.  Rather than being as reactive as we often are, we become able to maintain our own peace in the midst of high-stress situations, and thus we do not lose our tempers, act irrationally, or wrack our nerves.  The more balanced we are, the more power we have over our lives, as we are less likely to react out of habit, rather than thinking a situation through.

It's amazing how learning to meditate can bring so many powerful effects into our daily lives.  Learning to let go of all the stress and worries of daily life, learning to tune in and know ourselves better, and the ability to focus and improve our minds; these are the wonders of meditation.  

Give meditation a try and see how wonderful it can make you feel!

Mind Your Self-Talk

While your Inner Critic acts as a pre-recorded tape of pessimism, Self-Talk is the internal dialogue that results.

Along with your Inner Critic, Self-Talk is a constant, running dialogue in your conscious and unconscious mind that can be self-limiting unless you become aware of it and use it to empower you. Negative Self-Talk can come from inside of you—or from the outside world and the given circumstances. We are the results of how we see ourselves—how we communicate with ourselves, and how we have been programmed. Be aware of who and what is programming your brain. Surround yourself with people who validate your beliefs and encourage your ideas, so that they can help you reach your positive outcomes. If we allow others to make our decisions for us, we become voluntary slaves.

Wilder Penfield said, "Every thought you've ever had is stored in your brain and remembered forever!" Fill that storage bin with positive thoughts!

The mind does not make value judgments about the information it is programmed with. When garbage has been programmed into the unconscious, the outcome will be garbage!


Here are some examples.

GI (Misinformation): Actors are fake.
GO (Limited Behavior): You feel uncomfortable about acting

GI (Misinformation): Big men don't cry
GO (Limited Behavior): Men develop stress-related illness

GI (Misinformation): The Jones' are clumsy
GO (Limited Behavior): Bill Jones is accident prone

GI (Misinformation): To be creative you've Got to have "it"
GO (Limited Behavior): Lots of people miss out on developing their creativity because they think they don't have IT

Internal Negative Self-Talk includes statements like:

• "How could I be so dumb?"

• "What's wrong with me?"

• "I'll never be able to act like a professional."

• "I won't get far without a college degree."

What happens if you accept this negative Self-Talk? EVERY statement you make to yourself programs your unconscious mind, and creates a belief system. By accepting negative Self-Talk, you shut down and become ineffective in life. You lose your passion to succeed, excel, compete, and give back to society.

By consciously becoming aware of your Self-Talk, you will rekindle your passion for life, stop playing the victim, and move with confidence toward successful outcomes.
