Transcendental Meditation, If you suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder due to traumatic repetitive childhood trauma and / or service in war zones, would you be interested to significantly reduce their symptoms through natural and free practice? Would it be worthwhile to develop this technique and their practice?
Transcendental Meditation, TM, is the technique I mean. Maharishi Mahesh Yogii introduced it in 1957. Contrary to what some believe, TM is not a religion or based on any religious teaching that requires a particular set of beliefs.
Dozens of independent scientific studies have determined the value of TM. The Journal of Clinical Psychology in 1989, for example, compared the efficacy of different relaxation techniques to reduce anxiety. TM has been found to make the biggest difference. TM has been found to help reduce depression, digestive problems, insomnia, psychosomatic illness and dependence on smoking (for more information, go to the natural cure for all.com).
Its applicability to treat PTSD was established by the University of Colorado neurophysiologist Dr. James Austin, who documented through MRI brain circuits and reconnecting the trauma TM cable to the anxiety of a peace of mind. In addition, a pilot study published in the June 2011 issue of Military Medicine are military veterans experienced a 50 percent reduction in symptoms of PTSD after only eight weeks of practicing TM.
To learn TM:
1. Choose a mantra, a sound, syllable, word or phrase on which to focus; For example, “God is Love,” “I am relaxed”
2. Sit in a quiet eliminate distractions such as children and telephones. To meditate is to focus successfully. You can lie or sit.
3. Close your eyes and relax each separate part of your body starting with the feet, working on top of his head. This gets easier with practice.
4. To deepen the relaxation of deep breathing and slow. Conscious breathing slowly and deeply, exhale slowly. Breath more deeply you inhale. Counting breaths, inhale to the count of six, hold your breath for four seconds, exhale, and held back on four counts, done over and over again. Observe your mind and your body relaxes more and more.
5. Focus on your mantra. Repeat slowly for one minute. Every time I say that more and more smoothly. Once I said as gently as possible, repeat your mantra in your mind only. Do not force yourself to concentrate on it, but I feel you relax. May be easily distracted at first. If so, breathe deeply and concentrate on your mantra. His approach will improve dramatically with practice.
6. Concentrate on feeling the connection with life itself, while mentally repeating your mantra for about 20 minutes. When distractions come to mind, or if he forgets his mantra, quietly let you go back and refocus on his mantra.
Return your attention to your natural environment after 20 minutes. Stretch before rising.
If you suffer from PTSD, the practice of TM twice daily for at least two months to see if it starts to decrease your symptoms. You have nothing to lose but stress
