Benefits of Meditation

Meditation is for everyone. It uses the inherent self-sensory system, the mind, and the body.  Through the use of refined patterns, meditation creates a communication between you and your mind, and between your mind and your body.


·        promotes a sense of well-being, inner peace, stability & calm.

·        releases reactions and unconscious habits, subconscious fears and blocks, and builds the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself.

·        encourages mastery over transforming emotion to devotion.

·        promotes the ability to focus energy, enhancing effectiveness and efficiency.

·        promotes clarity of mind, mental awareness and the ability to be present.

·        resolves core issues of stress-producing patterns.

·        develops the frontal lobe of the forehead/brain, which controls your personality.

Generally speaking, meditation makes you feel great. With regular practice it will relieve years of built-up stress and anxiety so you can be the person you truly are … at home and at work.  It will allow the best of you to “shine through”.  And after you are cleared of the stress that has been with you for years, each daily meditation will “erase” any daily stress that may have occurred.  Our lives are not “stress-free” – meditation is the key to not allowing the stress to control how we feel or how we respond to stress.

Many people wonder why we do meditations for certain prescribed amounts of time. It is because there are specific lengths of time which produce particular desired effects. Here is an excerpt from Yogi Bhajan that explains:
3 minutes of meditation affects the electromagnetic field, the circulation and stability of the blood.
11 minutes of meditation begins to change the nerves and the glandular system.
22 minutes of meditation balances the three minds, and they begin to work together.
31 minutes of meditation allows the glands, breath and concentration to affect all the cells and rhythms of the body. It lets the psyche of the meditation affect the 3 gunas, all 31 tattvas, and all layers of the mind's projections.
62 minutes of meditation changes the gray matter in the brain. The subconscious “shadow mind” and the outer projection are integrated.
2 ½ hours of meditation changes the psyche in its co-relation with the surrounding magnetic field so that the subconscious mind is held firmly in the new pattern by the surrounding universal mind.
