Lately I’ve been reading a lovely little book called The Field by Lynne McTaggart. One of the things that I love about this book is that it systematically presents the scientific evidence for how things like meditation and spontaneous healing work.
I was particularly struck by learning that meditation is not just a way to relieve stress. It’s great for that yes, but it has several other benefits too. Here are the ones I find the most interesting:
- Meditation makes you more open to flashes of inspiration in your life, work, art, or whatever it is that you do in the world.
- Meditation improves your physical health, especially if you visualize your body healing itself.
- Meditation gives us the ability to influence the health and well-being of everyone around us- in a positive way.
It seems that it truly is an observer-created universe, and meditation is part of what helps us tap into that in a more conscious way to create the life and health that we want. Scientists used to think that this was only true at the subatomic tiny level, but they’re now finding out it’s also true on a larger scale.
Meticulously designed scientific experiments have shown that humans can do things we’ve only before thought of as “supernatural”.
But what does all this mean to you? Well, by far the most interesting thing I read on Sunday was that short small bursts of meditation are as effective as one long meditation. In other words, meditation time is cumulative. So meditating 10 times a day for one minute is as effective as meditating once a day for 10 minutes. This is great news for those of us that have a hard time making time for meditation or who are just learning and having a hard time sitting still.
So here’s your three tips for this month — to help you learn a new way of meditating:
- Set an alarm on your phone or computer to remind you to stop and meditate for one minute, six times a day. (I have mine set to go off once every three hours throughout the day.)
- When your alarm goes off, stop what you are doing and take six deep breaths. You can do this while walking, doing the dishes, or even sitting at a stoplight if you want to. You can close your eyes if you like. Let yourself relax.
- If you want, add an image of your body healthy and cancer-free, or of you living your life’s dream.
