Meditation Advantages

Lots of people associate meditating with a few spiritual modern-day hippie nonsense without ever really understanding and even wanting to understand the advantages of meditation .
Although meditating is spiritual in a way it certainly isn't a few new age hippie nonsense ! It has been practiced by a number of cultures or civilizations for thousands of years before us .
There's no substitute for meditating . It truly is an art form that has many benefits which is why we'll discuss just a few of the many benefits of meditating in this article .
Firstly meditating allows you to re-connect with yourself and open up channels of your subconscious mind that are buried deep . Very few of us actually take the time to assess ourselves and our happiness , purpose e .t .c
Meditating allows you to really have a deeper understanding of yourself , both in the physical and mental sense . It strips away the false layers of identity and allows your true divine self to shine through .
For example have you ever noticed the guy in the pub who acts the big man , stating stuff like "mess with me and I'll hurt you" and generally making his voice heard ? Why is this ?
It's a false identity , people like that deserve pity not respect . They have yet to reach into their soul and overcome the demons that are troubling them . Therefore they live behind a false ego to compensate .
That's an extreme example but we are all guilty of this to some degree . It's easy for us to "mask things over" . Meditating will help you realize your true self and help to address any buried emotional scarring .
Meditating is also known to increase the performance of the brain .
Although meditating isn't directly related to increased IQ or intelligence it does allow you to use certain parts of the conscious brain that are used less often .
In short the conscious part of the human brain resides at the front. This is then broken down into two categories ; the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere .
The left hemisphere of the brain is that which most people use predominantly ! It deals with logic , reason , safety and such like .
The right hemisphere deals with a persons creativity such as their ability to think outside the box , problem solving , increased willingness to take risks and so on .
The problem is most people primarily use the left hemisphere of the brain which is much more cautious and logical than the right ! This is due to schooling and extended education as well as influences such as media and even friends/ family.
