Discover All About Meditation

When you think of meditation, the first thing that you usually think of is probably a yogi, sitting with a straight spine below the tree and touching fingertips.

But in reality, Meditation is a much broader term.

It allows you to take a step back from your topsy-turvy thoughts and racing mind. It helps you to stay still and focused on one particular thing. It teaches you how to keep patience, even when you are coping with stress.

When our thoughts are negative or critical, the brain chemicals affect our immune system in a negative way. Mind Strength is one of the most endowing tools we can use to influence and enhance all the aspects of the life. Slower Wavelength creates more time between thoughts and hence offers you more chance to skillfully choose which thoughts you devote in and what actions you take.

Meditation is listening to the divine within you..

There are basically 5 kinds of brain waves which activates different areas of the brain.

  1. Gamma Waves: Gamma waves are supported by other wave forms. Increasing gamma waves increases memory function, stimulates the five senses. It increases motivation and ability to learn quickly.
  2. Beta Waves: Beta waves are linked with the alert mind. It is the state of thinking mind and it is the most dominant of all the waves. Excess of beta waves results in stress.
  3. Alpha Waves: Brain Waves begin to slow down out of thinking mind. We find ourselves in alpha state usually after a yoga class and during an activity that relax the body and mind.
  4. Theta Waves: Theta waves are associated with deep meditation and hypnosis. We often felt as drowsy with stronger intuition. The Theta state is linked to visualization. Increasing theta waves lead to greater self-awareness, advanced creativity and advanced learning.
  5. Delta Waves: These waves are slowest of the brain waves that occur during very deep sleep. Increasing delta waves lower down the levels of cortisol hormone and hence, reduces the signs of aging.

I hope you will find something interesting here. Scientists have developed a more thorough understanding using MRI scans about what really happens in our brain when we meditate.

The brain stops processing information as actively as it normally does once you start meditation. Beta waves are highly reduced during the process.

Where there is meditation and peace, there is neither anxiety nor doubt..

Let’s discuss what exactly happens in each lobe of the brain.

Frontal Lobe

It is most evolved part of the brain responsible for planning, reasoning, emotions and self-conscious awareness. During meditation frontal cortex is switched off.

Parietal Lobe

This part of the brain processes sensory information related to surrounding world, angling you in time and space. During Meditation, activity in parietal lobe is reduced.

Thalamus

Thalamus controls the senses. It targets your attention by directing some sensory data deep into the brain and ending other signals in their track. Meditation slows down the flow of incoming information.

Reticular Formation

This structure gets incoming stimuli and alerts the brain, to respond quickly. It brings back the arousal signal.
