Meditation is considered something religious for certain cultures. But that may not  always be true. Meditating helps one clear the mind and de-stress, especially during these challenging times.  No matter what religion we belong to.

Stress is a significant component of the immune system, more than we may think. In fact, de-stressing can greatly reduce the chances of contracting any illness.

 

Stress can mess with any part of our body. It can cause rashes, it can make us tired, and it can certainly lower our immune system.   It promotes the release of the hormone cortisol, that’s why.

Cortisol is beneficial in small amounts; but it can wreak havoc when out of control.

Cortisol can cause acne breakouts and unsightly rashes.

Much deeper,  cortisol actually weakens our immune system to the point that our body may not be able to protect against the virus.

This becomes evident when we really get stressed over an extended period of time that may lead to sickness.

Meditation is an incredible way to clear up the mind, alleviate stress, and may help prevent any illness.

Further, it allows us to take our mind off of the unpleasant events around us; and just being in a sacred place for a moment, we allow our body to relax.

Consequently, it helps reduce our stress level, lower our cortisol level, ultimately boosting our immune system.

Choose any type of meditation that works for you

Practices like yoga, Qigong, and Tai chi also involve meditation associated with movement, furthering the mind-body connection by adding movement to the practice.

There is also the use of guided imagery or guided meditation, in which we can visualize ourselves in a calm and relaxing state or mantra meditation where we choose a syllable, phrase, thought or word that we utter repeatedly, shutting off extraneous thoughts that are trying to invade our brain. Similarly, mindfulness meditation attempts to keep us in the here and now.  Cleansing our mind of the negative thoughts.

Meditation on Twin Hearts

I personally practice Meditation on Twin Hearts (MTH). This meditation is a simple yet powerful technique;  it incorporates four of the most common types of meditation: awareness, spiritual, focused, and mantra meditation.

MTH is an advanced guided meditation technique introduced by Master Choa Kok Sui, the founder of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, which originated in the Philippines.

This meditation has been translated into over 20 languages.  Practiced by hundreds of thousands in more than 150 countries, MTH is used by people of different religions (including Hindus, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Sikhs, and Jains) as well as other cultures and philosophies.

Meditation on Twin Hearts is a simple yet powerful way to de-stress ourselves. Through the guided meditation, we use loving and positive energies (by focusing on the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi), to bless other people. In doing so, we purge ourselves of the stressful energy that weighs us down.  What could be more de-stressing than that?

But don’t take my word for it.  You’ve got to experience it to believe it.

Join the Meditation on Twin Hearts… There’s a nightly schedule at 7:30Pm Monday to Friday via Zoom or FB Live. With Self-healing session to relieve stress, worries, relationship and even financial problems.
