Meditation is an effective way for everyone to relieve stress, find inner peace, and promote good health. You can choose between a guided and non-guided meditation. Broadly speaking, guided meditation can help you meditate by listening to instructions from a speaker or teacher. These can be in the form of a mantra, chant, guided imagery, and or rhythmic music such as binaural beats.
A mantra is a chanted word or phrase or a symbol visualized in the mind which is repeated over and over during meditation. The word mantra has two parts: man, which is the root of the Sanskrit word for mind; and tra, which is the root of the word instrument. A mantra is therefore an instrument of the mind, a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to silence the mind and enter a deep state of meditation.
Meditation Guided Imagery
Guided imagery meditation is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses and directs the imagination in positive ways using multiple layers of complex, encoded messages by way of simple symbols and metaphors. It can be just as simple as an athlete’s 10-second reverie, just before leaping off the diving board, imagining how a perfect dive feels when slicing through the water. Or it can be as complex as imagining the busy, focused buzz of thousands of loyal immune cells, scooting out of the thymus gland on a search and destroy mission to wipe out unsuspecting cancer cells. Although it has been called “visualization” and “mental imagery”, these terms are misleading. Guided imagery techniques involve all of the senses, and almost anyone can do this. It is not strictly a mental activity, but involves the whole body, the emotions and all the senses.
Binaural beats are auditory tones designed to put your brain into a meditative state. Traditional meditation can be very difficult because it’s difficult to hold the mind’s focus. But brainwave entrainment tools like binaural beats can put you into a meditative state more easily and quickly. Thanks to modern day Biofeedback techniques such as the electroencephalograph (EEG) we can measure how binaural beats alter brain frequency rhythm. The four main brain patterns are beta, alpha, theta, and delta. The alpha rhythm, measured from the back of the head, is between eight and twelve cycles per second. The beta rhythm is faster, between 18 and 30 cycles per second. These two brain waves are of particular interest to scientists because they seem to reflect being alert and states of hyper focusing.
Theta would be a day dream state and it comes right before delta which is a deep sleep. Some research suggests that theta may be the time when creative people receive some of their important inspirations. Like alpha, theta also appears in the brain-wave tracings of meditating persons, but usually only in very experienced meditators and following a previous period of alpha.
