Searching For Truth: A Blog by Sherri Smith
Until we treat the mind, we cannot treat the body. Our minds (thoughts and emotions) consume up to 95% of our daily expended energy. In our meditative practice we reduce the activity of the mind or the attachment to it and slow the process down, thereby reducing the stress on the body. Stress is essentially an overactive mind which in turn begins to compromise the body functions. When our perception becomes imbalanced, interpreting everything as burdensome or challenging, the corresponding chemicals are released into the body to prepare for what it perceives as the task at hand, based on our thoughts. When we bring peace into our lives, our perception changes and the body functions at more optimal levels. The results are obtained within a 30 day span, reversing aging, disharmony and imbalances. In today’s environment, the most toxic and challenging environment that we, as humans, have existed in to date, meditation should become as habitual as brushing one’s teeth. The actual practice does not have to be any kind of experience; simply siting quiet and staying away from thoughts as often as you can. Science has proven that 30 minutes in morning and 30 minutes in evening of meditative practice, regardless of experience, allows for growth of the limbic tissue within brain and the grey matter of the amygdala shrinks. The amygdala is the region connected to stress and anxiety whereby the limbic portion of the brain is responsible for our emotions and beliefs, pleasure and decision making.
