Meditation is a wonderful tool that can help us to achieve balance both mentally and physically and whilst it has taken several decades to gain acceptance within the medical industry, it is now routinely used to treat a range of conditions which whilst not limited to include, depression, stress and anxiety, sleep disorders, self-esteem and a range of mental and emotional issues.
Meditation has been widely used to assist us in controlling and reducing addictions to smoking, drugs and alcohol. It reduces blood pressure and helps minimize the symptoms of menopause. Medical Meditations have now been used for a variety of issues such as Anger Management and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
So how does Meditation help?
Meditation helps to lower the heart rate and blood pressure by slowing down the breathing which lowers the amount of oxygen needed for the body. Our mental processes are also slowed down, muscles relax and the body begins to function at a calmer and more natural level, this assists in relieving muscle pain, improving the function of the immune system and returning the entire body to its natural perfect balance.
Some other benefits include: –
Decrease in Heart Rate
Decrease in respiratory rate
Decrease blood pressure
Decrease in oxygen consumption
Decrease in muscle tension
A sense of calmness and peacefulness
Greater clarity of thought
A significant reduction in the stress and anxiety in life
A better sleeping pattern
Assistance in the treatment of illness and disease within the body
A general feeling of overall better health
Does Sound Healing Really Work?
Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself!
The late Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss scientist, rendered vibrations into physical forms, using sand, iron filings, and other materials, creating a multitude of kaleidoscopic images. This study of patterns and shapes is called cymatics.
When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease. With dis-ease, a different sound pattern is established in the affected part of the body. When sound is projected into the dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns are restored.
There are many methods of healing with sound. Mantras and chants have been used for thousands of years. Many acoustic instruments are used in a variety of ways to effect change. The human voice is perhaps the most powerful musical instrument.
Fabien Maman, in his book, The Role of Music in the Twenty-First Century gives dramatic accounts of the effects of sound on cancer cells, using various acoustic instruments and notes, as well as the human voice. He has incorporated the use of sound, color and movement in his work, addressing the subtle bodies, where dis-ease is created.
