The Power of Meditation
Finding Inner Balance
Words: Constandia Christofi
For a while now I have felt compelled to write about how we can maintain our inner balance amidst this time of uncertainty and change. There is so much information swirling around and strong opposing opinions felt, that I have felt the need to retreat into my inner world.
What I did not expect to find there, was all the answers to this tangled web of reality we are currently experiencing. Alongside this enlightenment, I have also discovered how to initiate my internal army within my immune system through the practise of meditation.
When we quieten our senses and go within, we become greater than our environment, we become greater than our physical body. This process takes us into an elevated state whereby with practise we begin to switch off our sympathetic nervous system, that has us living in survival mode and turn on our para-sympathetic nervous system, that takes us into deep relaxation where the real magic happens.
Going within and detaching from your analytical mind and allowing yourself to be uplifted by a beautiful vision of your future self, holding this intention with pure emotion and gratitude releases chemicals from your brain that match that elevated emotion.
These chemicals have an effect on your physical body, they instruct your genes to make proteins and these proteins send signals to the cells in your body. Messages are released from the pineal gland through this process of brain and heart coherence, as all the energy from your brain moves into your heart. This creates a release of the hormone oxytocin that charges your immune system. These chemical messages from the pineal gland signal our T-cells to produce our body’s natural antibodies, charging our immune system and initiating our internal army to be ready to protect us.
You can self-regulate by doing this every day and maintain your inner balance just by simply going within and closing off all external stimuli and connecting to your inner-state of being, your natural state of being.
