Meditation is quite a special tool: it can allow one to see deeper inside oneself or enable their shedding of ego boundaries. It can calm and sooth your body and mind, or it can allow you to harbor energy in specific regions of the body. Meditation can be a lot of different things: some people prefer to be guided by another, while others prefer a solo journey. One person may choose to chant or utter words and phrases while another could choose silence and isolation. Personally, I prefer guided meditation sessions because they allow me to hand over control of my thoughts. When I’m not in control of my consciousness I feel I can attain greater states of relaxation and transcendence. Though no matter your preference on format, deep, deliberate thoughts and concentration in meditative states helps your body and mind in many ways, both those understood by science and otherwise.
