Meditate to your Good Health
Stress is evil because it is the number one cause of all the diseases and problems existing in our lives. We, humans, stress a lot. We emphasize on teeny-weeny stuff that exists around us.
What is the outcome?
The outcome of stress is that it puts much pressure on our pituitary gland, which is the “Master Gland.” This Gland is responsible for the production of hormones, which regulate all organs and the growth of our body. Stress can mal-function the regulator button of our body; the pituitary gland and that can create havoc in our biological cycle.
How can we regulate our stress?
Our thoughts cause stress. What we think, is the outcome of what we believe and that belief can make us act upon. This action can be injurious to our health especially when it’s a negative deed. This deed can, in turn, regulate our hormones. If the deed is negative, the hormones play havoc in the body, but if the act is a positive one, the hormones tend to play music in one’s body.
What about joy? What impact does joy have on our body?
Joy is like music to the ears. When a person is happy, he aspires to dream big, and that gives a kick to his mental being, which affects his immunity level, and he can defend his body from various bugs. Happiness is good for the mind and the body. No wonder, there are laughter camps, where adults are forced to laugh.
How can we control our thoughts and always be happy?
The Mantra of liberation is to be aware of our thoughts.
Awareness of our thoughts can liberate us from the pothole of sorrows.
This can be achieved if we devote some time to our mind. Give a few minutes each day to talk to your mind and listen to it.
How can that happen?
•Detach from the environment
•Keep your cell phone or computer or any distraction away from you. At least 5 feet away from you!
•Close your eyes
•Listen to your mind
•It will wander
•Let it wander. After a few minutes, you will observe the mind has nowhere to go except be with you at the moment.
•Enjoy this moment
•Be in it. There are moments when a person falls asleep. Doing so is okay.
•When you open your eyes; you will be fresh. It will be as if you slept for a good 6-8 hours.
•That is the wonder of awareness.
This kind of activity if done on a daily basis will make you aware of your thoughts at all times. Whenever you feel or see anything that is against your wishes, you will start to talk within your self (This sure sounds crazy!) but this therapy makes you ponder over your stress, and you will come up with the solution. (I guarantee it!)
Benefits of following the above regime besides reducing stress

My 2 cents
Humans are intelligent souls with loads of energy in them. It’s just that we are not aware of it and do not ponder within ourselves to dig and bring it out.
Stress is the number one bug around us and is eating us ALL. It is the cause of all the diseases, and we have the instincts to recognize it and curb it. We are the practitioners of our health. We can treat the disease before it invades our body.
Look within your self and meditate on your good health.
- Energy Healing!
Humans are blessed with so much energy within them that they have the power to heal thyself. Chakras are within us and by following these simple steps, we can help stimulate the chakras/wheels of our body to get wellness physically and mentally.
