Can Meditation Really Improve Your Cellular Health?by Tamara Selaman
What is Meditation?
“cleansing the mind and releasing the garbage from the subconscious”
“stopping the mind rushing around aimlessly”
It is a means of transforming the mind and raising awareness and seeing the true nature of things.
What does it do?
Meditation focuses the mind and redirects the thoughts. It changes the brain waves by helping them to slow down. We do this by focusing in on the breath. A simple meditation to use, to begin the transition from Beta or Alpha to the Theta State is to just simply focus on the breath. The breath and mind work in tandem, so as the breath begins to lengthen, brain waves begin to slow down.
The mind, heart, and body can improve with regular meditation.
