Most of us correlate meditation with sages and yoga practitioners. Very few people realise what a simple process it is and how much it can help us.

There are many health and spiritual benefits from meditation. Spiritually and mentally you achieve a peace in your mind and you learn to de-stress yourself. Meditation always results in a sense of calmness and tranquillity.

Some of the physical benefits which accrue from it are as follows:

  • It increases the blood flow to the heart and lowers the heart rate.
  • For high blood pressure patients it results in lowering the BP to a normal level.
  • Chronic diseases such as allergies and arthritis have been helped by regular meditation.
  • The respiratory processes of the body are benefitted because there is an increased flow of air to the lungs.
  • Since the respiratory systems are improved, this helps in showing significant improvement in asthma patients.

The greatest value in meditation lies in the peace that the individual attains. When your breathing processes are evened out, when your body becomes more relaxed and you mind is also at peace, then the world seems like a much better place and happiness becomes a constant companion.

    Meditation puts mothers in tune with their babies. Manta Japa is especially appropriate for pregnant women. After birth, daily meditation becomes a precious time to refocus and make sense of the many new thoughts and feelings which can be running through your mind, brought about by the events of childbirth and new motherhood.

    Though meditation is usually recognized as a largely spiritual practice, it also has many health benefits. The yoga and meditation techniques are being implemented in management of life threatening diseases; in transformation of molecular and genetic structure; in reversal of mental illnesses, in accelerated learning programs, in perceptions and communications beyond the physical, in solving problems and atomic and nuclear physics; in gaining better ecological understanding; in management of lifestyle and future world problems.

    Meditating does more than just feel good and calm you down, it makes you perform better – and alters the structure of your brain. People who meditate say the practice restores their energy, and some claim they need less sleep as a result.

    I’ve been practicing for more than 6 years and I find that meditation not just changes structures inside the brain it changes a person’s personality,it changes the ways a person feels and the way he reacts to specific situations.I can surely change the meditators attitudes towards life, provided that he practice in a proper way.I started meditating when I was in middle school, I was aggressive ,and usually stubborn and always wanted to be in the military.I would have become a soldier if didn’t started 6 years ago.Now ,I’ve changed a lot no more aggressive, no more stubborn and more calm.And it is no exaggeration to say that it changed my life completely. My IQ has improved a lot (about 50 points).And now I’m studying medicine, which is opposite of serving in a military ,fighting and killing people.

    There is infinitely much more of what ur article say. There is much more! from metaphysics to astronomy, the theory of everything, e=mc2 all relates to the inner core of meditation but for that u need someone who went into the experience and ready to go for any scientific test to prove this statement. The human mind is the only territory that the scientific community knows little compared to mass money spent on rockets, etc

    I’ve been meditating for some time concentrating on the point between the eyebrows and noticing how my breathing starts to become less as I feel more relaxed. I also feel the Kundalini or Serpant energy crawling around my head and although this is quite a scary feeling especially for the first time, I think that it actually relax’s the body and in physical terms I guess that it is the brains electrical activity that is shifting and altering the chemicals in the brain to make me more concentrated, alert and calm.
