Feeling unable to just do what is good for you?
Why is that? Because you can not NOT communicate. Mental chatter, thoughts and emotions keep communicating in the background, possibly disconnecting your free will from your actions. Practicing Walking Meditation regularly serves to relax, become aware and responsible, focus and influence your state of mind, in the direction you choose.
Benefits of Meditation and Walking Meditation Practices:
Every word you consume, every thought and emotion you replay is stored in the brain and keeps having its effect in the unconscious. Anyone who reads negative information every day or criticises and compares themselves constantly, fosters a sense of impotence and develops negative thought structures. And these negative thoughts change our transmitter chemistry in the blood and in the brain. Dopamine level drops. Stress hormone level rises.
Here comes the benefit of Meditation: New neuronal connections and dopamine levels increase. Training is even reflected in the actual morphology of the brain, according to Sara Lazar, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. The brain scan shows that a structure in the brain, which is involved in the control of anxiety (among other things) actually shrinks. You can change your brain structure and the way it works, like a muscle,”train the relaxation muscle”. At the same time, the “grey substance” grows in areas of the brain, associated with compassion or are responsible for the memory. Daily meditation and choice of information intake is crucial to shape the way your brain works.
