The mind controls our bodies through its direct connection and interaction with the glands via the hormones and nerves.
Did you know people who meditate have higher levels of something called telomerase in their bodies, an enzyme important for the long-term health of cells in the body. (i.e. healthy immune systems and lower rate of serious diseases) The body and mind are in a direct conversation at all times. You can heal yourself and/or worry yourself sick.
I don't want to freak everyone out and have you worried I am a born again crazy person. I am still the same old me loving Sex and the City and too much wine and reading Us Weekly. There is
just a lot less worry, negativity, stress, anger, loneliness inside me due to this new awarness.
Meditation doesn't have to be hard. Really. It can simply be 2 or 3 mins of absolute quiet time. Close your eyes, take deep breaths and relax. Thing about the happy moments in your life and concentrate on how you are full of love and understanding! If you want to go deeper you can imagine your body has a warm energy gently flowing in and out of it with complete love and trust on each breath. I visualize it as a light pink light. Don't be disapointed if you can't stop thinking...that's not the point. Meditation is the welcoming of all thoughts, good bad weird and annoying. Just let them be there in your mind, don't dwell and then see what happens next. It feels soooooo good!
Give it a try today. Do not pospone this.
Love and Hugs
