[ Meditation… Part 1 of 3 ]

Have you ever wondered this about meditation?

I’ve been reading a lot about it and
feel the benefits from it but what exactly does meditation do for the body?
I know it activates certain parts of the brain but I’m not clear on what exactly that means. 

One of my clients asked me this in my inbox and I thought it would be a great series to dive into with you.

Sure, I’ve written about my personal experiences with meditation, like the time I I did a 10-day yoga challenge (starting at day 95).  But you probably were wondering, “what does meditation do for the body?”

[ Meditation Does A Body Good! ]

According to SoundsTrue.Com, meditation on the body can help you:

  • Channel revitalizing energy throughout your body and 

  • Uncover your body’s untapped powers of perception, intuition, and wisdom.

We live in an overly stimulated world, so when you can channel energy to make yourself feel good, your body can literally carry you longer and work more optimally!

Meditation can structurally change your brain… “thickening some areas, and making others less dense”…

Similarly, we are mammals, and meditation allows you to attune to the silent messages your body tells you to signal happiness, balance, and yes, even illness.  Body Scanning Meditation awakens you to what your body needs and wants to tell you:

As a youth, Levine was incarcerated several times. His first book, Dharma Punx, details teenage years filled with drugs, violence, and multiple suicide attempts—choices fuelled by disillusionment with American mainstream culture. His substance abuse started early in life—at age six he began smoking marijuana—and finally ended in a padded detoxification cell in juvenile prison 11 years later. It was in this cell where he hit “an emotional rock bottom” and began his vipassana practice “out of a place of extreme drug addiction and violence” While incarcerated, he saw for the first time how the practice his father taught him gave him the tools to relieve the fear and uncertainty that pervaded his life.

One notable aspect of Buddhist Dharma is the path of our choices, the actions past and present and the intention for future action (Buddhist Law of Karma). Levine’s past—addiction, incarceration, violence, initial rejection of Buddhism and meditation—are all defining characteristics of his writings and teachings. “We all sort of have a different doorway to dharma or spiritual practice. Suffering is a doorway. For me it was the suffering of addiction, violence and crime which opened me at a young age, 17 years old. I was incarcerated, looking at the rest of my life in prison and thought, ‘Maybe I will try dad’s hippie meditation bullshit.’ Suffering opened me to the possibility of trying meditation.”

He currently leads Dharma and vipassana meditation retreats and workshops across the United States and teaches weekly meditation classes in Los Angeles. A member of the Prison Dharma Network, Levine works with juvenile and adult prison inmates, combining meditation techniques with psychotherapy. He “explores how they can have a deeper understanding of what has happened and what they need to do in order to be free, on many levels—free from prison, free from the trauma of the past.”

He has helped found several groups and projects including the Mind Body Awareness Project, a non-profit organization that serves incarcerated youths. Introducing them to the Buddha’s teachings. He lists the 14th Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Norman Fischer, and Sylvia Boorstein as his teachers.

The only 2 quotes you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!


[ ‪#‎GentleNudge‬ ] 28Jan2015 ~ The only quote you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…

I recently took my final test as a student at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition, the Largest Nutrition School in the World.  This means, that I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach!

Will Health Coaches be the future of healthcare? Doctors are trained to treat illnesses, but they do not help their patients change the behaviors that lead to them. Health Coach and IIN graduate Maria Marlowe explains why Health Coaches fill a unique role in the medical field that is becoming evermore crucial.

Before taking my final test to graduate, I had to really ground myself and get focused.  In order to do so, I took a moment to remember two important quotes (or, mantras):

“I am at the right place, at the right time”
“There is no need to worry or rush, the Universe always has perfect timing”

Allowing myself to settle into these undeniable truths, I relaxed… and aced the test 100%!

 The Takeaway

In life you have choices… you can choose to be stressed, or choose to be blessed.  Find a way to stay relaxed and trust the process.  Know that you are exactly where you ought to be right now, and that the only time that matters, truly, is right now.

What are your thoughts? How do you relax when you are entering a major life changing event? Do you have a mantra! Feel free to comment below!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 29 (Centered)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 29

(Centered)

yogachallenge

[ Everything for a Reason ]

So, I made it to a Yin class today, and to my surprise (and great fortune), my favorite  Yoga Basics teacher was filling in!

I firmly believe everything happens for a reason, and there’s definitely a reason why she seems to always be teaching the classes I attend, even when I don’t expect it.

[ The Experience ]

I got to class around 5 minutes before it was starting.  As I scanned the room for the “perfect spot”, I realized that the only place that felt right (and that was left) was the one that was front and center.

Literally, in the center of the class.

Mind you, when I started this 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I would sit in the back of my classes.

Slowly I would rotate to mats more forward in the room, either to the right or the left of the class, alternating. Tonight, being in the center was a lil’ awkward and intimidating at first, since you literally are right in front of the yoga teacher. But, it took only the first 3 opening AUMs to let it go, relax and just be in the space as if I were not front and center.

[ The Takeaway ]

I left the class feeling so centered.

I felt so light and like I really went inward.  Methinks it is because in order to not feel so awkward where I was sitting, I had to rely on closing my eyes and making the practice as personal as I could, given my situation. Somehow, I made it work.

In the center of the room, I went inward and became centered.

Best. class. ever.

[ Question For You ]

How do you make the best of situations?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28 (Tightrope, Eyes Closed)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28

(Tightrope, Eyes Closed)

yogachallenge

[ New heights ]

The other day I was in Yoga Basics and our teacher had us do a pose that took me to new heights.

We were asked to stand with feet in line with each other, heel to toe, and balance.  First with eyes open, then with eyes slightly open.

Finally, we were doing a tightrope, eyes closed.

[ The Experience ]

Today, I did my yoga practice at home, integrating the tightrope into my experience.  Though it was nothing like this,

Tightrope-walker_1-620x339

allowing myself to find balance with my eyes closed felt as liberating as this:

[ The Takeaway ]

I feel strong, clear and I trust myself and my body more than ever.  This 30 Day Yoga Challenge has really awakened me to my SELF, my essence and the power I have within me.

I enjoy yoga. I love it.  15-minutes lifts me up just as much as 75-minutes. Yoga brings me to appreciate life.  I feel energized. I feel alive.

All good things.

[ Question For You ]

You balanced?
