Your Brain on Meditation


Meditation has some neurological interesting aspects, you see your regular waking state , the brain activity between 12 and 30 Hz, it’s called beta, when you are concentrated in deep studys and focused tasks you are in Alpha, in the frequency range of 8–12 Hz arising, Theta wave, or Theta rhythm, is the term used to designate the frequency range  about 4–7 cycles per second (Hz). Here is where your brain remains in meditative state, and good meditators might decrase theyr brain frequencies into Delta, (beware of doing it uncoiunciusly its also the range of deep sleep);  Meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex—brain waves in the stress-prone right frontal cortex move to the calmer left frontal cortex. Meditation provides a disidentification space in wish you can let go your problems, and while meditation might not be everyone’s specialty its basic skill, busy people might excuse themselves on not having time, but truly, its pointless, when you are likely to be the one most needing meditation than somebody with a lot free time, and it’s the basic core skill for scrying, medium ship, if you want to develop magical practice meditation it’s going to be there, if you are not really into sitting in a half lotus position or don’t even have a good place to do so, find somewhere where you can sit with your back straight and breathe, I think there is enough recommendations in other posts so Im not going to delve a lot in technique.

Another of the benefits of Meditation that cannot be overlooked are emotional control, self control, an apt meditator does not feel pressured under the public opinion nor is rushed on acting, meditating will allow you to be more under control when your boss is being pushy or when things don’t go exactly as planned, you will have more concentration and focus on what actually matters, and let go of that what is not needed, also meditation it’s not about epiphanies or high inspirations, otherwise, meditation it’s to let go, and if those things occur you just might gently let them drift away instead of rushing you calm state into stressful action.

If you are not very apt into meditation there are also aids, there are guided meditations of many authors around the world, the New Age its practically audio meditations, also Binaural Frequencies have plenty meditation aids, find one that works for you and hear it when you have spare time, it will help you get you started and give you some good respite, but remember the idea its to get started on meditation, not to depend on those aids, because if they ever happen to fault, your best meditation aid will always be your brain.
