Research has documented a number of benefits to the nervous system in response to consistent meditation, including:

  • Reduced blood pressure

  • Lower heart rate

  • Decreased perspiration

  • Deeper feelings of relaxation

  • Decreased stress & anxiety

  • Enhanced mood & emotional well-being

  • Improved immune system functionin

  • Enhanced cognition, attention span, & focus

  • Increased positive thinking & optimism

  • Improved sleep

  • Decreased pain

  • Increased self-awareness

After consistent meditation practice, many people find that they are less impulsive, reactive, and judgmental. They carry with them a stronger sense of calm, focus, and connection - with themselves and everything around them. Instead of getting stuck in their habitual, conditioned patterns, emotional wounds, and limiting beliefs and reacting, they instead begin observing them, reflecting - and letting them go. As your meditation practice develops, you may find it healing to go a step further and begin introducing positive affirmations at the end of your practice, as an intentional replacement of the limiting patterns and beliefs that you are releasing. “I Am” is one of the most powerful phrases you can utter; be mindful and intentional about what comes after it.
