What is Vedic Meditation?
Vedic Meditation is a simple, effortless and ancient technique that stems from the 5000-year-old body of wisdom know as the Veda. The technique is easy, even for the busiest of minds. We sit comfortably, close the eyes and silently use a mantra or personal sound that allows the mind to naturally settle down to quieter and more subtle states. This settling of the mind triggers profound levels of rest in the body, much deeper than sleep.
Most people have tried to meditate at some point and when faced with the onslaught of thoughts decided, "I can't meditate, my mind is just too busy". The good news is that when practicing Vedic Meditation we don’t need to remove thoughts, we simply let the mantra do the work. This technique is designed for everyday people like you and me, who have busy minds and lives. Anyone can learn and anyone can benefit.
Why should I meditate?
The deep levels of rest achieved in meditation allow the body to unwind, process and release stored stress that may have been present in the body for years. As we let go of stress we start to experience a range of mental, physical, and social benefits. To name just a few:
· Increased clarity of mind and focus
· Ability to stay calm and perform under pressure
· Improved problem solving and decision making
· Reduced stress, anxiety and fatigue
· Increased energy, improved sleep
· Enhanced immune function and overall health
· Enhanced creativity
· Greater emotional intelligence and improved relationships
Expand the mind
“As you are, so you see.”
People have long used meditation as a tool for expanding the mind. The state of the mind or our state of consciousness, determines our own unique reality. Everything we experience in life is filtered through our individual lens of perception. What’s interesting is that our state of consciousness is not a finite, unchangeable thing. When we meditate consistently, over time we drop the underlying stresses that inhibit our full mental potential. Perception increases and the lens with which we experience the world begins to expand.
The primary motivation for most things in life is greater happiness. It’s natural; the mind is geared to constantly seek it. When we meditate we give the mind an experience of inner fulfillment. Repeatedly experiencing this inner state begins to colour our outer experience. Many meditators report feeling happier and more fulfilled.
