One of the most popular natural therapies that I’ve come across in the last few years is meditation for healing the body. It makes sense too, because meditation has been used for thousands of years to heal the body. Nowadays, it’s even easier to learn meditation techniques and do guided meditations on the internet. As I began researching how meditation for healing the body worked, I was surprised to discover there were dozens of different styles of meditation. And, because I’m not an expert in the field, I was left with many questions unanswered.
There are many websites and video guides on the internet that offer guided meditations or self-care methods. What I discovered however, was that a lot of these videos and guides are from people who are not trained in the techniques or don’t understand them very well. There were a couple of meditations for healing the body I observed that made me uncomfortable. For one, I noticed that a large number of participants in these videos were doing poses that are positions that I feel uncomfortable being in. In fact, it’s possible that some of the people watching these videos don’t even know they’re meditating.
The other main problem I observed in the video guides and guided meditations for meditation was that there were no guidelines offered to show me how to perform these meditations correctly. The video guides sometimes didn’t indicate where to place my hands, which makes it impossible for me to achieve the proper meditation balance and benefit from each pose. And, even when I got it right, I found the participants’ bodies uncomfortable and their breathing patterns odd. This isn’t the meditation for healing process.
However, none of this stopped me from enjoying the healing power of meditation. After all, I enjoy the overall physical well-being meditation offers as well as the mental focus and clarity it provides. I just wished there was more information available about this type of meditation for healing the body. This led me to John Coleman’s book, The Science of Getting Healthy. I had been reading about the science behind the mind-body connection as well as the role emotions play in our well-being. It seems these aspects of the healing process can be activated through meditation as well as through daily physical activities.
Meditation To Heal Your Body
In his book, Coleman introduces a concept known as mindfulness, which he states is: “the mindful state of being, which recognizes and releases the presence of others.” Mindfulness is an essential part of guided meditations for meditation for healing. Mindfulness can be applied in any situation, but for Coleman, it is particularly important to apply it during guided meditations for meditation for healing.
By the time I got to the part about applying mindfulness during meditation for healing, I was already feeling confused and distracted by the thought of it. I know it sounds like it goes against everything I’ve ever taught, but it’s true. For example, I’d never really understood why it was so important to practice sitting quietly for ten minutes after eating a meal. Clearly, the food and I have a symbiotic relationship. But when I started meditating, I quickly realized that this very insight was what I needed to develop the kind of awareness that will lead to my well-being meditation for healing. Mindfulness is the key to becoming fully present while using the techniques of guided meditation for healing.
Through the techniques of guided meditation for healing, the meditation for healing the body can benefit me in many ways. It has certainly improved my mood, confidence and energy. My stress levels have gone down significantly, even though I’m still not totally stress-free. I love being able to clear my mind and really focus on something that makes me feel good, even if the object of my focus is pretty uninteresting.
In The End
This kind of spiritual health is also beneficial for my mental health, too. I do think that the science of meditation has a lot to offer people who want to live healthier lives. It is interesting to note that the most successful forms of spiritual healing are exactly the same practices that meditation for healing uses, so I do not think that they are “two different paths.” Certainly, there are some spiritual techniques that meditation cannot offer, such as the benefits derived from meditation alone. However, guided meditation for healing can help make other types of healing possible.
