What is Transcendental Meditation and Why You Should Care

This meditation will increase your productivity, better your health and enrich your personality.

Meditation changed my life.

I have been meditating for twenty minutes, twice a day for over a year now and have seen some significant changes in myself.

It gives me increased mental clarity. I don’t suffer from constant habitual thinking and I find myself to be much more present in the moment. I also find that it allows me to focus easily and has hugely increased my creativity as well as boosting my energy!

It creates a space between my thoughts and the awareness behind those thoughts, allowing me to dis-identify from the habitual stream of negative thinking I have suffered from in the past.

The meditation in question is not just any old generic form of meditation. It is called Transcendental Meditation or TM for short.

The holy grail of all meditations.

Transcendental meditation is an extremely simple but highly effective form of meditation. Allowing your mind to settle to its simplest, most powerful state of awareness. Uninfluenced by any mind activity or thought process. It settles your mind inward and allows you to access the most silent, peaceful level of consciousness. Your true self.

TM is a unique form of meditation unlike anything else out there. A plethora of scientific studies have shown that TM is the most effective form of meditation that exists today. Far more powerful than mindful and concentration meditations due to its transcendental nature.

TM boasts a huge range of benefits:

Anxiety, fear and depression

These three things if suffered in acute form can completely wreak havoc in our lives and stop us from doing the most basic of things. Even if you are suffering from a low-level fear, like a background static that never seems to go away. This is something that stops you from reaching your full potential and being at the top of your game. TM can make a world of difference.

The technique that you learn with this meditation breaks the self-perpetuating cycle of anxiety, fear and depression which are all too common in todays world. Especially in western society.

TM reduces anxiety, fear and depression by settling the mind as well as the body. Therefore the nervous reaction to stress is decreased. Subsequently, many of the usual symptoms you may experience such as panic attacks, social anxiety and bipolar swings become a thing of the past.

Stress reduction

Everyone knows how bad stress can be. It is the underlying cause of countless illnesses, kills relationships and speeds up the ageing process. It also has a tendency to build up in the system over the course of a lifetime.

A weekend away or a good nights sleep is just not enough to remove the residual stress that has built up in our system over the years.

Transcendental meditation removes the effects of stress physiologically, resulting in a more balanced level of internal health. Everyone experiences different balancing effects ranging from fewer headaches, improved sleep to increased energy and better relationships. However, the most significant reported benefit an ability to handle stressful situations better after learning how to meditate.

Intelligence and creativity

The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Made up of a network of billions of nerve cells called neurones. Your brain is constantly evolving. Brain cells are forever being renewed and new connections are being forged.

While meditating, you experience a state of restful alertness that creates the perfect conditions for you to unlock your full potential, allowing maximum intelligence and creativity in a totally effortless manner.

Individuals who learned TM showed increased creativity compared to controls, measured by a higher level of pictorial originality when tested after five months of meditation practice.
