Have you heard about meditation? You know, that mental practice that gives yogis seated on flying carpets their superhuman powers? It is too bad that normal human beings like you and I can’t practice meditation, because it takes a lifetime of practice and can only benefit those raised in Far East cultures.
Those are just a couple of meditation myths – that you have to be raised in a certain culture to understand it, and that you don’t start benefiting from it for 30 or 40 or 50 years. Probably the most common meditation myth is that it is too difficult for the “normal person” to understand and practice. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Many people say medication is difficult, even impossible, for anyone not raised as a “spiritual adept” or Far East holy man. This is simply not the case. Men and women from all walks of life, from any culture, both young and old, can benefit from regular meditation. It is actually very easy to learn, and not difficult at all. The key is learning meditation practices that have been proven to provide the health benefits you are looking for.
Find an experienced and knowledgeable teacher. You will learn to calm and free you mind, instead of concentrating too hard, a beginner’s mistake. With home study courses, online monthly memberships, and countless meditation DVDs, e-books and MP3s available, it is not difficult to find the instruction you need to properly benefit from this total body/mind health practice.
Don’t listen to those who tell you that “meditation is hard”.
That popular meditation myth could be keeping you from enjoying the best mental and physical health of your life. Consistent meditation practitioners show less signs of stress and anxiety, a reduced risk of disease and infection, live longer lives, process information faster than non-meditators, and enjoy high levels of self-esteem and self-awareness.
Meditation is only difficult if you have a poor teacher. So find a qualified meditation coach today, and stop listening to meditation myths and untruths propagated by uninformed individuals.
