Power of Meditation :

While you are  reading this text, simultaneously you are breathing, your heart pumping blood to all parts, your kidney is filtering your blood, your skin is sensing temperature and sending signal for warm or cold environment, your ears are hearing sounds, your eyes are not only reading but also overlooking the background, your hands holding the  mouse  by applying a constant pressure on it, many more things are going on inside your body  unnoticed without consciously thinking about it. All this is controlled by your senior silent friend known as subconscious. Your subconscious is driving you silently. Though it is not your enemy but an uneducated powerful friend. Your subconscious  run your whole body without disturbing you consciously. It comprises of 90% of your brain and thus it is much powerful than your conscious brain-the thinking you.

All your instant reaction are directed from sub-conscious as there is no enough time for conscious to think and take decision. But sometimes we do have time yet we allow our subconscious to react on situation in anger. All this behavior can be change by having control over your subconscious.

Our subconscious does not understand words as our conscious do. Thus making a bright and happy picture trigger your subconscious to work towards that goal. Your subconscious understand feeling and emotion’s and pictures made in your mind. Use them to alter your behavior.

Meditation is art of awakening subconscious and to create a link with it. For meditation one needs calm place with dim or no light and loose outfit. Sit on the ground preferably or on any hard surface in comfortable posture. Cross leg is better. Give a name to your sub-conscious before starting the meditation.  Slowly take deep breath. Close your eyes and try to relax while thinking that you are part of universe and you and universe are one entity.

After 5 mins or when you start feeling relaxed, start talking to your subconscious. Think about what you want to change in your behavior or inside your body. For example: anger/ quitting smoking/ losing weight/ recovery from disease.

Repeat: I want to control my anger.

I don’t want to get angry on small issues.

If I will not be angry, it will make my life better. My family will be happy. My friends will be happy

Everyone will appreciate me. I will be a happier person.

So I don’t want to be angry. Max (name your subconscious) help me to control my anger.

It will make me happy.

Try to think of happy life which bring smile on your face. Make a picture in your mind of your family and friends being happy and appreciating you. Meditate for min. 10 min. daily in the morning. Within one week to ten days we will find difference in your behavior.

Make meditation a rule of life and follow daily. It enhances your capability and control. Meditation is good exercise to relax your mind and change your behaviour.

Understanding Brain:Who are you?

There are two entities governing human being. The body, nervous system and subconscious brain makes the First entity. Other is conscious mind or our thinking brain which we will call the second entity. Let us try to understand this by below example:

No one wants to have any kind of pain but yet when we we have an injury, we feel pain. If our Conscious brain (which is actually me), is an autonomous body having full control then why we cannot stop our own pain? Why we can’t stop our own tears when we want to hide our emotions? Why we feel hungry when we already accumulate enough fat and want to reduce it to be in good shape?

Above questions and many more such questions suggest that Conscious brain is not autonomous body. We are not fully in charge of functioning of our body. Our subconscious (The first entity) brain has predefined program to function . This program is encoded in our DNA and executed by our subconscious or unconscious mind. We receive this pre-defined program from our parent’s gene. The program not only regulates our growth, appearance and our ageing but also define standard procedure of operation in case of any instant threat to our body. A simple paper cut in our hand starts several operations within a second to mend it. At the same time a signal is sent to our brain to create a sensation of pain so that we can react externally. If there is no pain, we might not take any action to stop bleeding as it might remain unnoticed. So pain is a mechanism through which our sub-conscious brain communicates with conscious mind.

As we cannot talk to a microprocessor or computer directly, in the same way we cannot talk to our body or subconscious brain directly. We need programming language to instruct it. Right now we do not have any such program, programming skills or programming language to directly instruct our subconcious brain to take action according to our choice like- utilizing accumulated fat in our belly for energy requirement instead for carving for food or stopping any abnormal cell growth which can cause tumor.

All our internal process occurs without our notice leaving our conscious mind free to think and focus on worldly affairs. If our conscious mind will be made responsible of all internal functions then we will not be able to focus on any external things. We will become self-absorbed. Our conscious brain can do just one function at a time.

Your unconscious (Or subconscious brain) has amazing processing capabilities compared with the conscious mind. Research shows the unconscious mind absorbs millions of bits of sensory information through the nervous system in any one second. Given the name ‘unconscious mind’ you will not be aware of a lot of the processes that the unconscious mind engages in. The research also shows that our subconscious brain understands images and pictures. So meditation and visualising image of positive things can generate positive result.
