To heal is to live, to live is to love, to love is to know your true potential…

Why Meditate,- Why is meditation good for you and why do I yawn when I meditate? Learn meditation for stress management

When you start your meditation journey, you will have lots of questions. Let’s have a look at three popular questions.

  • Why meditate?
  • Why is meditation good for you?
  • And, why do I yawn when I meditate?

1.    Why meditate?

Because healing your heart, mind, body, and soul are good for you and you deserve to be at your best.

2.    Why is meditation good for you?

Meditation awakens your genetic structure, promotes healing, clears your mind and dissolves fear. P.S. Science 100% backs up the health benefits of meditation.

3.    Why do I yawn when I meditate?

This is a common question asked after our sessions. Yawning during meditation is a sign that you are releasing stress from your body.

You’ll find more answers and some pretty impressive scientific research below.

Why Meditate? The #1 Reason People Meditate

Why Meditate,- Why is meditation good for you and why do I yawn when I meditate? Learn meditation for stress management

Tense shoulders, aching neck, irritable, impatient, easily frustrated, always overwhelmed… Sound familiar?

If you’re not suffering from stress (bravo!), sadly, someone you know probably is. Almost 30% of the population are experiencing severe stress and symptoms of anxiety (*1). The number one reason people turn to meditation is to reduce stress(*2). When life creeps upon us, we are reminded to take a moment, to pause, and look after ourselves.

Meditation as a Stress Management Technique

Many participants of meditation have spoken about the varying benefits they have gained – stress reduction being one of them(*3, 4). All agree that it affects the mind, body and soul via its ability to realign all three parts of the self. Guided meditation is a powerful and effective stress management technique.

Why do I Yawn When I Meditate?

Some of you have asked, “why do I yawn when I meditate?” You yawn during meditation because it is a way of releasing stress and exhaustion from the body. Yawning is a good thing! You know you are releasing quite a lot when it happens during the meditation session. During meditation, let the yawns come and go as your body moves into a deeper state of healing and relaxation.

You may also experience goose-bumps, tingling, sparks or even a tear. For meditators who are just beginning, their body undergoes a massive clearing – akin to a detox. Stress has a substantial negative impact on the body (physically and mentally). So, it is no wonder the feeling of it leaving the body can be a little uncomfortable, as it is negative energy. Whether you find yourself yawning, tingling or another unique experience, the release of low energy and stress from your body will do wonders for your mental and physical health.

Guided Healing and Relaxing Meditation Offers:

• A deep level of muscle relaxation that helps with stress and tension related issues such as headaches and muscle pain.
• A profound level of mindfulness that helps with cleansing the mind of distractions so you can improve your memory, focus and make decisions more quickly.
• A deep-rooted level of self-understanding so that you can see your place in the world and help you discover your purpose.
• The ability to see your world with clarity, and then it enables you to make the choices that are right for you.

Why is Meditation Good for You? Is There Scientific Proof Meditation Works?

Meditation is the gift that keeps on giving. For a period after meditating, the benefits of the meditation on the brain continue(*5). The people who join our weekly classes only commit one hour per week to meditation – and feel the effects all week (and then some). Long-term meditators change their brain structure! (*6)

A wealth of scientific research has been devoted to uncovering how meditation works so well. We have references to scientific studies and research scattered throughout the Meditation in Sydney website and a wealth of articles in that section.

We’re looking forward to reading more of the science behind the brilliance of the ancient medicine of meditation. We will continue sharing the current research and the real-life experiences of first-time and long-term meditators.

To skip straight to those:

Earth, sky, fire, water and air are the five pillars of creation.

“The five-element process reveals how to use the divine power of each element to healing stress, physical, emotional and mental disorders. This powerful process also provides the ability to send healing over long distances. As I have now aligned with the five elements by following a set of strict and specific formulas and techniques shared with me from the secrets of ancient India, everyone attending my meditations will now gain new heights of consciousness as a direct result of the energy transfer that takes place in the meditations, otherwise commonly known as Shaktipat.” Senka
