I use healing meditation to support the controlling of my high blood pressure. Meditation lowers blood pressure, restores/changes your brain, enhances your sex life, increases the levels of happiness, and enhances your immune system. All this happens by simply sitting still and quieting your mind for approximately twenty minutes. It is so beneficial and practical.
You can experience all these accelerated healing of the body, emotional, mental and physical benefits. Know that with practice, once in a while the sounds will disappear, then sensations disappear and then thoughts will disappear. You will have reach your state of tranquility and the stillness you feel will be sweet.
Researchers states that meditation practice do increase the size of specific brain areas. You can mentally change your brain structure, increase your brain cells and even modify neuronal pathways through your life experiences.
This type of healing meditation is at the heart of you making positive changes in every area of your life. At the basic level, this type of mind-training improves mental stability and bestows a healthier immune system.
With a stable, focused and calm mind you will reduce your stress, and that in turn will result in less illness and emotional anxiety.
The aim of meditation is to still your mind, as best as you can, then giving it something else to do like deep breathing, counting or reciting a word over and over will work wonders.
One of the first step of meditation is to sit still.
The first week of my first time meditating I learned how to take full control of my body by just sitting perfectly still. This is from fifteen minutes to half an hour every day, in a quiet environment. At first my thoughts roamed all over the place and I let it. Learning how to be still is absolutely essential in controlling your body before you can progress.
Next I closed my eyes and using a repeated word, "one", in my mind, silently, to shift my mind from the constant chatter, "the mind wandering" while matching the rhythm of my breathing to the word to enhance the repetition of the word.
I adopted a laid-back, passive attitude, so when distracting thoughts came I was not worried, I simply returned to the repetition of the mental word. When thoughts occur it does not mean you are meditating incorrectly, because it is to be expected.
With every healing meditation try to deeply relax all your muscles and with daily practice you will become successful at meditation.
For me meditation is a form of mind training. With meditation you focus more, and quiet your mind. I use Heal Your Mind, Rewire Your Brain MP3 recordings to increase the effectiveness of my meditation, maximizing the benefits. The binaural frequency pulsations in the background on each recording will rapidly increase your mental and emotional stability and help in the rewiring of your brain.
I listen to these binaural beat that corresponds to the particular brain wave of meditation in a quiet and peaceful place. The quietness helps in the effectiveness of eliminating distracting thoughts.
Your goal is to reach the point of thoughtlessness. To help you reach that place of complete peace, look at these different types of healing meditation and their benefits, and choose the one that fits you.

To meditate set aside to start five minutes and gradually increase this time to twenty minutes daily. You must be consistent.
These techniques listed below are surprisingly simple and useful. Practice these exercises to lower your blood pressure and save your life.
How you breathe affects your whole body. Breathing involves inhaling oxygen into your lungs and exhaling carbon dioxide through your nose.
To correctly breathe you engage the main muscle of breathing, your diaphragm. When your diaphragm contracts it allows your abdomen to pull more oxygen rich air into your lungs and when you exhale it relaxes your body.
As you inhale, focus and imagine your breath traveling from your navel up to the crown of your head, along your spinal column, and to different parts of your body. Inhale and exhale along the different points of your body.
Do these healing meditation exercises for approximately ten minutes daily and see how relaxed you will feel. Take your blood pressure before and after doing these meditations and you will definitely see a difference in your measurements.
So start your healing process with these complementary treatment to lowering your high blood pressure.

You might find this surprising but you may be meditating and not even know it. I am sure you unconsciously meditate at times, doing things that require no conscious effort. It just quiets your mind.
Here are some things that you might have already done and have achieved deep levels of relaxation, meditation and creativity:
Be mindful of how you feel of what is happening when you breathe. Always breathe in and out slowly and deeply. Observe the air entering your abdomen, how it expands as you inhale, and contracts as you exhale the air out.
Focus on whether your breathing is shallow or deep, smooth or ragged. Feel your heart beating and your blood pulsing through your body. Because the more you focus on your body the more you will be able to quiet your mind and switch off longer from the world.
The truth is your life will never be stress or worry free. But if you learn how to make yourself happy and be grateful, you are off to a good start in quieting your mind. Accepting your self-talk can help to lower your anxiety.
Your mind is used to constant chattering, it has been doing that all of your life. The first time you try to meditate it will try to distract you. You may close your eyes and start seeing things, faces or pictures.
