Meditation is a powerful way to heal your mind and indeed your body

Meditation has been around for centuries and is in essence a practice where you can train your mind and induce a higher or altered state of consciousness and obtain a feeling of calm and inner peace.

Most practitioners of meditation do have various techniques on how they meditate, however one of the easiest ways to start is by closing your eyes and breathing slowly and deeply while relaxing your body and emptying your mind.

If you can count to 10 then you can start on your journey of meditation and find an inner calm that you never knew existed. The staff at carpet cleaning Sherwood Park are true believers in the power of meditation and your ability to re-energize your body and mind.

A basic way of breathing in preparation for meditating is as follows;

First off you will want to practice this with no distractions, so find a quiet location, wearing loose, comfortable clothing helps you to feel relaxed.


Sit in a comfortable position either or the floor or in a chair, or indeed you can lie down and close your eyes.

The great thing about this is there is no special equipment required (you can of course invest in a meditation chair or pillow once you have progressed to more advanced techniques) and this technique can be used pretty much anywhere once you have got the hang of it.

A huge part of meditation is breathing, sounds simple right as we do it all the time, well in this we are going to look at a great way to ‘control’ your breathing which will start you on the journey to meditation.

You want to breathe naturally, do not force it.

Okay so focus on your breathing, on your first inhalation, count 1 quietly in your mind, and when exhale count 2, then inhale again count 3 to yourself.

Continue this until you reach 10 and then return to 1, basically on every inhale you should be using the odd numbers – 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 – and on each exhalation you will be counting the even numbers – 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.

If at any time you lose count just start again at 1 and carry on, do not worry about it.

While starting out (indeed further down the line) you may find you fall asleep, this is great as think how relaxed you must be to sleep.

To start with try to practice this technique for 10 to 20 minutes daily, and once you feel comfortable with this method of breathing you can stop counting.

This is a great way to relieve yourself of stress and as mentioned can be used anywhere once you have got used to it, in the office or the bus etc.

Reverse Mindset

A reverse mindset is one of the essentials not only in the wisdom in living but also in the process of self healing.

Our body has an innate mechanism for self-healing, but it has to be activated through the mind.

The body and the mind are interconnected and it is very important to harness mind power to initiate the self-healing process.

Unfortunately our minds can be “conditioned” into thinking otherwise; that is, believing that the body may need medications to begin the healing process. This is where the reverse mindset plays a pivotal part and can indeed open our eyes to self-healing.

Descartes, the great philosopher, once said: “I think, therefore I am.”

But what is a reverse mindset?

Wisdom comes from our minds, basically that is how we think.

Because our thoughts determine who we are and what we do then wisdom has to do with mental perceptions of what we experience, as well as with our interpretations of those perceptions.

Sometimes however our thoughts can deceive and mislead us.

For example, we have been bombarded with notions, such as “talk to your doctor,” that have the mindset that drugs are answers to all our health problems.

Therefore, true human wisdom is the capability to separate the truths from the half-truths or even myths.

To see through the deception or illusion created by our minds, we need a reverse mindset. The explanation is that the human mind is frequently “pre-conditioned” such that the thoughts of past experiences “pre-determine” how the mind will think and act.

Therefore, to develop a reverse mindset, we must first and foremost have an open mind so that we can receive unconventional ideas and new ideas.

An example of “conditioned” thinking is that “extra effort” will lead to success in something we do. However, with a reversed mindset the opposite is true: that is, the less effort, the greater chance of success because extra effort creates only more stress.

In the same manner, taking more pharmaceutical drugs will not make you healthier; quite the contrary, the more medications you take, the more toxic your body becomes as you fill it with foreign chemicals.

Therefore, develop a reverse mindset to take control of your health and believe in the power of self-healing, which means doing the least and letting nature do the rest.

Spiritual Self Healing

Spirituality has been increasingly used as a self healing process over the centuries. You can heal yourself through various forms of spiritually motivated self healing techniques.

Self healing is like a journey where you not only reach your destination, but also enjoy the actual journey.

This journey, or process of self healing, is an integral part of our spiritual existence.

As we have previously mentioned our bodies have the capability to heal themselves, cuts and scratches close by themselves, in fact sometimes so well that they do not even leave a scar.

This is self healing and can be applied to other ailments.

Spiritual self healing is similar but heals the body from inside to out, this is not a method but a journey we can take on a daily basis, to achieve the desired results.

So can self healing help you?

If you have a desire to live a healthy and content life, then yes self healing can indeed help you, and if you need help when you feel that medicine is not enough, that you wish for some sort of divine help and are overwhelmed by the stresses of life.

It is simple to introduce in to your everyday life, and spiritual self healing forms the foundation from which you can grow and lead a healthier life.

The more you practice and use your positive inner energy, the more attuned to it you will become, and before you know it you will be feeling its benefit without even concentrating on doing it and the more your body will self heal, both inside and out.

You will live a healthier, more balanced and positive life.

Feeling this inner energy and utilizing it to self heal can be found by various techniques including meditation and channeling your energy through various parts of your body, it will make you feel healthier, less stressed and can heal your inner and outer body.
