Returning to Wholeness
The Ultimate Power of Meditation
It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Dr. Joe Dispenza, and while re-reading his New York Times best-seller "Becoming Supernatural, How common people are doing the uncommon" I felt compelled to share this excerpt which speaks to the benefit of practicing specific meditations. I highly recommend this book to those of you interested in taking meditation to the highest level, and I hope you find this excerpt as thought-provoking as I do.
Quoted from the book:
"Research shows that when we take our attention off objects and matter and instead open our focus to energy, vibration, and information, different parts of the brain work together in harmony. The result of this unification of the brain is that we feel more whole.
When we do this often, our heart begins to open, beat more rhythmically, and thus becomes coherent. As the heart moves into coherence, so to does our brain, and because our identity is out of the way (meaning we've gotten beyond our body, a particular place in our known environment and time), the act of eliminating those things causes us to move to alpha and theta brainwave patterns, and we connect with the autonomic nervous system. As the ANS becomes activated, it's job is to restore order and balance, causing coherence and wholeness in our hearts, brain, body and energy field. This coherence is then reflected in all aspects of our biology."
