|In doing the simple act of making action purposeful, we have the necessary tool of awareness which makes all things possible, including stopping bad habits. Yet beyond stopping bad habits, replace them with others that you know are positive for you.One example is meditation, which leads to a myriad of potential positive outcomes, including the necessary release from stress and the resulting phenomenal physical and emotional level healing.
Read this article for some fascinating information on the potential of meditation done as a daily habit.
Though the exact time parameters this article gives of 7 years regarding the long-lasting nature of the healing benefits of meditation are not well documented in it, the idea behind it is still very sound and is the foundation principle of all Medical Qigong practices: where your mind goes, your energy follows…and manifests on the physical. The positive impact that occurs from meditation goes well beyond just the current moment you are meditating, and the more positive thought or time spent by us in a state of stillness/non-stress, the better and longer the healing results. Through meditation, one can either focus their dozens of random thoughts down to one thought or intention, or they can release their mind entirely from all thought, allowing their energy to reconsolidate and be used by the body. Even if we don’t know exactly what our body needs, the body has its own innate wisdom for healing itself when it is simply given the space or internal environment it needs for that healing to occur. Instead of using your energy for worry or frustration or any other thought which “exists” in the past or the future, give that energy back to your body for it to use for you to heal or stay healthy. Let your mind and your body exist in the same time: this moment, then hold that space either in focused intention or in stillness. This is the simple practice of meditation and amazing things will happen. Do this as a habit, and not just as an occasional practice, even if it is for only 10-15 minutes a day, and its potential only increases.
