Top 10 Profound Benefits of Meditation

Benefits of Meditation

Meditation is an art that has been around since the dawn of the age of man.  This is not a statement to be brushed over.  After all, many many things about mankind have changed over time, but the profound art of meditation is something we have clung on to dearly.  This is because there is no substitute for meditation.  Nothing else, single handedly, bestows the many wonderful blessings that meditation brings… in fact nothing else even comes close.  In this article I will outline the top 10 benefits that meditation brings and hopefully it will inspire all to learn and practice this timeless art.

Benefits of Meditation

1. Enlightenment:  This is the one ultimate purpose of meditation.  To help you discover the True Non-Dual Nature of Reality.  To make you realize that your True Self is Divine and One with God.

2. Peace & Tranquility:  The mind of one who meditates is like the easy, leisurely flow of the Ganges River, as compared to the ordinary mind, which is like Niagara Falls.  In other words your mind is at peace, deeply silent and so you are at peace.

3. Wisdom:  Meditation opens up the channels of communication between all levels of your being.  What this means is that you have access now to the guidance that is coming directly from your Divine Self.  This link gives rise to the flow of intuition and wisdom.

4. Joy & Happiness:  Meditation strips away the layers of false identity that mask your True Self from shinning through.  Once you eliminate these false egos and stop catering to their nonsense you can reside in your True Nature.  This brings forth joy and happiness as it allows you to be at ease with life, existence and yourself.

5. Love & Compassion:  As meditation reveals to you the interconnectedness of all humanity a great sense of compassion and love will spontaneously emerge.  Knowing that deep within we are all divine in nature will change the way you view the apparent differences you see in others. This will also dramatically improve your relationships both intimate and casual.  

6. Stress Reduction & Good Health:  This goes hand in hand.  As meditation teaches you the art of living in the present moment, anxiety and worry fade more and more into the background.  This state of relaxed awareness is most beneficial, to not only helping the body heal itself, but also for preventing illness and disease by eliminating the poison of stress.

7. Improved Brain Function:  All serious meditators know how much their brain function has been enhanced by meditation.  Now, empirical studies every day are indicating this link.  Meditation will undoubtedly increase your awareness and will significantly increase your intelligence.

8. Discover Your Purpose & Gifts:  As you start to drop those aspects of you that are artificial and pretentious you will get a chance to see the real you.  The parts that are not put on but are natural.  This will give you insight into who you really are and what you really love in life.  That is the secret of mastering the art of living and discovering your true talents, gifts and purpose.  That which you love, you do for its own sake without the need for reward of accolades.  Once this is discovered, life can be lived with passion, zeal and independence.

9. Yogic and Psychic Powers:  We currently use only about 10% of our brain capacity.  The practice of Yoga and Meditation awakens those regions of the Brain that normally lie dormant.  When these areas of the brain are activated the powers they hold are unleashed.  Such powers, used wisely, can be of benefit to others and of help to you in making progress on the spiritual path.

10. Magnificence:  Charisma, Confidence, Courage, Character and Balance are all brought about by meditation.  This leads to an individual who is immensely charming and magnetic.  Best word I could think of to describe the collective affects of these personality improvements was Magnificent.  Meditation will let your magnificence shine through.

    Thank you for your Top 10 Benefits of Meditation as well as the other helpful and insightful articles. We have seen a number of these benefits in our lives. However, if we may suggest, in addition to writing about benefits that science and research is now confirming, it would be helpful to list academic references or credible research sources. This can help move meditation “claims” from sounding perhaps a bit like marketing and sales to the world of empirical tested data. This way, meditators are given facts not only for themselves, but also when speaking to the occasional skeptic(?) :-) God bless, Michael and Janese K., Dubai
