Many health issues in our American culture have their roots in a weakened human spirit. We tend to feel lonely or that somehow our personal human spirit isn’t nourished or supported the way it needs to be. We aren’t always aware of it in these terms, nor do we know how to change it. Over time many problems may result.
One way we may access our own spirit is by connecting to our heart. Recognizing and honoring our heart’s desire is essential to healthy living. Chinese Medicine acknowledges the heart as the home of the human spirit, our wisdom, and the organ of joy in our body.
There are hundreds of meditation methods, so finding the right one that suits you is the most important thing. I teach a heart-centered meditation, which is universal and primary and a method that people of any religion may practice. It is basic in learning how to connect with our own heart, our own spiritual energy that we are born with. And as we cultivate our spiritual connection. our personal religious beliefs may guide our spiritual development. I have been practicing this form since 1994.
Of course, there are many scientifically proven health benefits from meditation practice. Among the top ones are relaxation, reduced stress, lower blood pressure, better ability to concentrate, and improved sleep. Whether our motivation for meditation is purely physical benefits or deeper spiritual cultivation, heart-centered meditation is a simple, time-proven method.
