Emotions running rampant and can’t quite get a grasp on which direction to take in life? Ready to magnify your inner voice? Try this on for size – mind-body medicine! Unlike conventional medicine, mind-body techniques like meditation can add powerful substance to healing our emotions and to enhancing our mental state of awareness.

Ever heard the lyrics, what condition my condition is in, from the Song, “Just Dropped In?” Whatever your psychological state is in, is the overall “condition” in which you act, feel, think, and live. But don’t just take my word for it; there is scientific evidence that has proven meditation’s effectiveness in treating a number of physical and mental health issues. Among the many physical conditions that meditation has helped treat include coronary artery disease, arthritis, and chronic pain. In addition, meditation has proven to be a natural immune system booster…but, if mind-body medicine can do all this, imagine what it can do for your emotional state?

Though rooted in spiritual Eastern practices — think of meditation as an intellectual exercise that will positively charge your inner voice. The first step to meditation is to relax your body and your mind.

Find a comfortable place where you can sit down and rest. The goal is for you to discard any mental thoughts or worries from your head. To do this, I want you to close your eyes, take a deep breath in, and slowly exhale. Now focus on a place where you are happiest in your mind. Search your visual memory bank for a beach, a sunset, an open field, a place in your childhood…wherever you feel the most safe and comfortable to free your inhibition. Are you there yet?

Use this suspended state of altered consciousness to rediscover your voice. Your higher self is desperately trying to communicate with you. When you place yourself in this meditative state, you are honing in on your listening skills, and are raising your mental awareness to a level where you can find resolution and the direction that you can now take to begin your journey to emotional healing.
