Is there a relationship between subliminal messages and meditation? How can they work together? Most of all, how can one person benefit from them?
Learning More about Meditation
There are millions of people all over the world who practice meditation, and it is not only because it is a fad. In fact, it has gone beyond the definition of fad since it has been around for countless of years. There are also people who live and breathe meditation. Take, for example, the monks you can find in the mountains of Nepal and Bhutan, as well as those in the temples of Thailand and China.
What is in meditation that makes it such a hit or even beneficial to man? It has something to do with its philosophy. In general, one of the essentials of meditation is to bring the person into the present, becoming more aware of himself. It also tries to calm down the mind and release the individual from the daily stresses of life, such as worries. If you can use it correctly, you can find that meditation may also help reduce anxiety attacks and settle deep-seated negative emotions, such as jealousy and anger.
Meditation has also been discovered to be healthy. It reduces the release of cortisol, which goes high when you are stressed. High cortisol is often the cause of reduced muscle tissue and bone density, increase in abdominal fats, and improper function of the thyroid. On the other hand, meditation increases serotonin, which minimizes the signs of depression and improves the mood.
What are subliminal messages? It is loosely defined as hidden messages, simply because they are stored in the subconscious. Almost always we tap on the conscious mind. Subliminal messages are available in different forms. You have sounds, images, and words.
To make it easier for you to understand it, consider the said example. What do you often associate when you see the color green? There will be some people who will think of it as nature, because they have been exposed to taller trees and grasses in their area. Some would remember bottles of Sprites, a soda brand, which are sold in their green bottles. You may not know it, but it is the subconscious mind that is bringing you these associations.
Subliminal messages may also be affirmations. These are words that have positive meanings. Consider these:
I love myself.
I put great regard over my work.
I see my work as highly important.
When they are spoken daily or repeatedly, they will get imprinted into the subconscious, and in the process, these positive statements or subliminal messages change your thought patterns.
How They Go Together
You cannot pick up subliminal messages immediately if your mind is crowded with a lot of things. This is where meditation comes in. It helps get rid of the things that clutter your mind, so it will be much easier for you to absorb the subliminal messages. This is because during meditation, your mind is completely relaxed.
