During Meditation, healing can happen. When the mind is calm, alert and totally contented, then it is like a laser beam, it is very powerful and healing can happen - H.H.Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Meditation is a way to calm the mind and bring the attention inward towards peace & harmony that is our very nature.
According to Dr.Dharma Singh Khals, by tuning to our inner vibration we can literally resonate ourselves to the heavens, thus creating that state where we feel divine and in touch with our higher source of healing energy. As our brain, mind, body, and spirit are fluid rather than fixed, this vibration can cause profound changes which are transmitted to our cells, reaching the level of our DNA itself, thus helping to maintain genetic integrity.
According to Dr.John Douillard, Meditation is fortunately becoming more and more widely accepted in the west today, but its benefits are still largely relegated to that of stress relief. While stress relief is an amazing and much-needed benefit in today’s fast-paced society, meditation has the potential to offer so much more.
Once we are freed from the grip of our thoughts and emotions, we become available to play the part we were meant to play in this life, to be our true selves, act from the heart, and follow our truth (not somebody else’s truth projected onto us) to an experience of pure joy.
Sitting quietly with our minds is an amazing start to building this awareness, recognizing that we are more than our thoughts and emotions, and opening the gates to the possibility of lasting transformational change.
In recent studies, meditation has been found to increase the activity of an enzyme called telomerase, which protects the chromosomal caps, called telomeres, from shortening. These chromosomal caps protect our cells from aging, degeneration and disease. Chanting, yoga, and other Ayurvedic lifestyle practices were shown to also increase the activity of telomerase in the body.
