Our emotional well-being is essential to create a healthy and happy life. For thousands of years, going back to the ancient scriptures in the Upanishads or to the words from the carpenter from Nazareth, all of the great spiritual teachers have directed us to look deep within through an abundance of different meditation practises. These help to create inner peace and joy, happiness, a sense of calm and of course, self-awareness.
Science fully subscribes to the treasures we can uncover in the great spiritual books: through releasing inner-toxic energy and emotions and by replacing them with feelings of love, joy, compassion, forgiveness and by having a playful attitude, we can directly change our biochemistry generating healthy molecules (neuropeptides).
It has also been proven scientifically that our thoughts alter the emotional state we are in and have a powerful frequency that penetrates space and time throughout the physical universe. Again, we can look to the ancient spiritual texts and see statements expressing this: “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” “What we think about, we become”.
One of the most effective ways to heal the molecules of emotion is through meditation and practising spiritual principles. There are many ways to meditate from focusing on your breathing (calm meditation), observing your thoughts but not being attached to them (Eastern meditation) and different ways to reverse your chronological age through nostril and pace yoga. Meditation has been proven to reduce anxiety attacks, slows the heart rate, enhances serotonin levels, reduces oxygen consumption and creates deep serenity and peace. How wonderful is that?!
As with all things in life, we have choices and it’s up to us how we go about things. In my personal experience, creating positive emotions and regular meditation practise brings a happy and joyful life. Breathe deeply and enjoy your eternal bliss.
