Science tells us that meditation can create new neural pathways in our brains, healing and strengthening our brains.

So why aren’t we all doing it every day—many times a day?

Meditation is simple, the practice easy.  I am a huge fan of meditation and I teach it and practice it.

And, even though meditation is simple and easy to practice, the greatest challenge in learning how to meditate is our MIND.  Our minds are not so easy to manage.

Because the challenge with the mind is that meditation can only truly be helpful when we empty our minds.  The irony is that our brain is constantly creating electrical impulses—thoughts. As long as we live thoughts will be produced; images and ideas will be created and circulated. We can’t STOP the thinking.

Emptying your mind means learning how to stop following those pesky thoughts.  Stop chasing the rabbit down the rabbit hole.

But, here’s a quick and easy way to stop following your thoughts.  Simply sweep them away.  When a thought arises, thank it, and then visualize your hand (or a broom) sweeping the thought away. 

This is what I say; “Thank you for sharing your life with me, now leave!” and I visualize the words being swept away like a pile of leaves.  When the next thought arises I repeat, “Thank you for sharing your life with me, now leave.”

The key to limiting how many thoughts arise to pester you is in the depth of relaxation you attain.  Because the more relaxed you are, the slower your brain waves, the less thoughts are produced, and your head becomes emptier.

There are four categories of brainwaves, ranging from the most active to the least active: beta, alpha, theta ,and delta.

When your brain is aroused and actively engaged in mental activities, it generates beta waves.  When you are relaxed or meditating your brain produces slower alpha waves.

Theta brainwave state is when you daydream or when you’re driving on a freeway, and discover that you can’t remember the last five miles. (Who hasn’t done that?)

And finally, delta brainwaves are active when we are in a deep sleep.

What’s so important about our brainwaves?

When we can shift our brain activity from beta (studying, working, playing video games) to alpha, and deeper, we are allowing our brains to heal, recuperate, and alter. And our thoughts slow down, making it easier and easier to sweep them away and keep them away.  

There is no doubt that the fast-paced, ultra-competitive world we live in brings us anxiety, stress and lots of time spent in beta brainwave states.

But, by adding meditation to your daily routine, you can slow down your brain activity and give it a rest.  Give it a rest so it can reboot, renew, and recuperate. 

Meditation can help you find peace in an EMPTY MIND!
