Benefits of Meditation
Practicing meditation is based on trust that the truth is in each of us. The truth about right and wrong, the truth about good and bad, the truth about hatred and love, the truth about cold and heat, sound, silence, light and darkness, movement, stillness, life and death, everything in between – the truth about existence. By meditating, we can calm ourselves in the restless mind and give ourselves the opportunity to listen. Listen inwardly to the inner wisdom. No one needs to tell us how things are, or how we should relate or act, for within ourselves; we already know. The truth is there if we only listen.
Meditation is a natural method, side effects free, both a skill, and a practice, and a deep relaxation. A practice in mindfulness in the present moment that has a stress reducing effect and can prevent and cure many common problems and ailments. Meditation calms and cleanses the mind from disturbing emotional memories, provides peace and contributes to mental health, sharpens memory, strengthens the immune system, lowers blood pressure by making the body less responsive to stress hormones, which contributes to inflammation inhibition. Meditation strengthens concentration and focus. Awareness is sharpened and increased. Meditation leads to clarity. More and more people are seeking peace of mind through meditation. Because the more you can stay in the present instead of being weighed down by habitual thoughts and reflexive reactions, the easier it is to deal with life’s challenges. Increased awareness and care leads to healthier relationships with family members, relatives, friends and partners. A healthier life. Meditation is not tied to any religion or philosophy of life. Everyone, regardless of nationality, age, gender, background, descent or affiliation, can benefit from meditation.
As the moon is connected to spiritual practices, it is extra beneficial to meditate on moon days.
The new moon is the birth cycle for the different phases of the moon. An optimal time for spiritual cultivation, to set intentions and bring new into life, facing truth and moving forward in a favourable light.
The full moon has a profound effect on the energy of our existence, which can awaken spirituality, increase the activity of the mind, reinforce conscious thoughts and bring the subconscious to the surface.
