Transcendental Meditation: Farewell Anxiety; Welcome Harmony!
Even though the base of meditating remains the same, different types of meditation have been introduced for all those who wish to achieve peace. Transcendental meditation was founded and developed by an Indian guru named Maharishi Mahesh. This meditation became extremely popular during the 1960s and 1970s. By early 2000s, the technique was adopted by millions of people, including several celebrities, who learned either from the founder of the technique, or from the teachers taught by the founder.
Personally, the only power that I believe in is the Universe. I believe whatever you ask for, you receive (read Law of Attraction’s manifestation process by clicking here). However, after doing a little bit of research on transcendental meditation, I was drawn towards it. Since there are millions of people believing in it, I am sure it has the power to align you with your Higher Self. After all, the inner you is yet to be discovered in the universe of your Third Eye Chakra.
What is Transcendental Meditation?
In transcendental meditation, you keep chanting a specific mantra that helps you cut off all the chords with anxiety, stress and stress factors. No matter how stressful the situation is, you can cut off your chords with it when you chant the mantra during your transcendental meditation process.
When I say ‘cutting off the chords with anxiety’, I mean you stop giving any energy to the problems that you are going through in your conscious state of mind. While chanting the mantra, you imagine disconnecting with the conscious self and lose in the sub-conscious state of mind. When you are in the lucid state of mind, harmony becomes your friend. That state of mind takes you to the level of self-awareness, self-worth and the value of the beautiful life you are living.
The Process of Transcendental Meditation:
The process of this meditation begins with sitting in a straight posture. You relax every tight muscle of your body just the way you do when you do any other type of meditation. The only thing that you need to do is keep your backbone straight. You then chant the mantra that’s given to you for around 15 to 20 minutes. While chanting, you have to close your eyes and imagine cutting off all the chords (or not giving any energy to) all the things that stress you. Different people imagine different things during their transcendental meditation process.
If you want to begin with transcendental meditation, but are unaware about the mantra, you can chant ‘OM‘ as well. Keep doing it for around 20 minutes and repeat the process every day. The deeper you go into yourself, the quicker you welcome harmony into your life.
Transcendental meditation uses mantras and sounds that promise to bring down all the stress factors that you are going through in your present time. It helps in developing yourself and strengthening the inner you. Since you are positively developed, you are surrounded with positive energies even after the completion of your transcendental meditation process.
There are people who state that transcendental meditation is a part of Hindu religion. Personally, I don’t think any type of meditation belongs to any particular religion. When you enter the religion of spiritualism, everything becomes clear to you. The only thing that ever matters is inner peace.
