What Meditation Isn’t

Apr 30th 2014 at 5:06 AM

Myth: Meditation is purely a relaxation technique

I often hear, “but there are other things I do that relax me; I don’t need to meditate.” It’s certainly true that relaxation is a byproduct of a regular meditation practice, but it’s also so much more. Meditation allows us to consciously choose to live by being perfectly present and fully experiencing life right now, freeing yourself of the limiting negative mental chatter that can sometimes feel relentless. We can do this through reconnecting with the still, silent space inside of us, rather than seeking temporary periods of true happiness through external measures.

Myth: Meditation is a religious practice

You don’t need to shave your head, join a monastery, or give away all your money. You are making a commitment to love and honor the real you by reconnecting with the peace and love that resides inside but that has been slowly consumed through years of modern living.

Myth: Meditation makes you an emotionless robot

Meditation does not remove emotions; rather, it makes you more attuned to emotional changes. I used to worry all the time, believing the commentator in my head to be very true, which caused me lots of energy and stress. (“Wow, could that really happen? That would be terrible.”). Lots of the emotions I had were very fear-based and surrounded the future. Meditation has increased my clarity, allowing me to think more logically rather than emotionally. Living in the present moment helped me to disengage from my unhealthy emotional states, but I still feel things very deeply. for more info visit this site (
