Online Classes on Mindfulness Meditation Techniques in Perth
The mind controls everything in our life experience. It controls our body’s movements, it controls the chemicals and hormones we release into our bloodstream which in turn control our moods and emotions, it is the overseer of whether we perceive an experience as good, bad or nondescript, and is the tool for deciphering what we do and do not want in our experience. Therefore, it would stand to reason that the mind drives what we bring into our existence, good and bad.
The brain itself is a muscle, and just like the muscles in the body, the brain gets worked and stressed. Did you know that we don’t build strength when we workout? Working out actually weakens the body. It’s in rest that our intelligent body knows to repair itself to greater capability to meet the increased need for lung capacity, leanness and muscle. So, our strength comes from rest and relaxation not from work itself.
And just like the body, the brain too needs to rest. Doesn’t just the thought of escape from thinking leave you feeling sooo gooood? To take a break from worry, stress, planning, organising, predicting…
Of course, just like starting a new exercise routine, the newness (unless there has been some life altering experience to motivate us) can feel uncomfortable and cause us to give in before it gets good. The reason being is that at the beginning the rewards may not outweigh the efforts because it takes time to adjust. Some meditation practices reap instant feel good rewards whereas others take time.
