There are two completely different kinds of mental activity connected with the word meditation: The traditional European activity is thinking about or pondering a subject. The other activity, which is the more common today, is the systematic practice of a mental technique, with the purpose of reaching the calm behind the thoughts and getting to a deeper state of peace or expanded consciousness.
Why is it good to meditate?
It is completely individual. Therefore it can be difficult to clarify what meditation is beneficial for.
But when we look at meditation, and not least, look at the studies that have been carried out, you will be able to extract.

It takes daily exercise and discipline if you want to reach the beauty of the now and gain access to the spiritual energy of the universe. But you can make do with less if that suits you better. It is important that you find a balance in your daily life where meditation fits in.
It is a good idea to find a quiet spot where you can have peace for the duration of the meditation. Please reserve 20-30 minutes for your daily meditation practice.
You can lie or sit, whatever feels best for you. And you can change between sitting and lying. It is important that you don’t fall asleep, so if you are tired, sleep. Meditate when you are ready.
What is the outcome?
What can you expect? What is the profit? Let go of your expectations and embrace what comes. Having said that, through the many years I have meditated and taught 1000’s, say that you have the opportunity to get many wonderful, magical and amazing things out of meditation.
What I would like to emphasize is:
- Strengthened health
- Better to tackle everyday trummerum
- You feel a deep relaxedness
- Anxiety and fear disappear
- You create an understanding between body, mind and spirit
What happens in your body when you meditate?
The body is a case, our temple or castle, and we have to take care of it. We do that by listening to it, and the best way to that is by meditating. When we have done it for a long time, we will be able to interpret the signals from the body faster that it takes us to sit down and meditate!
- We learn how to accept the answers that come to us.
- When we rid the body of the thoughts and feelings we have been tied up in, our posture becomes straighter, because we become aware what we are worth. And we have the courage to show it.
- We are strengthened from within when we meditate, and that shines through our mental and physical bodies.
