Meditation As Medicine
KHARMA SINGH KHALSA, M.D. AND CAMERON STAUTH
Naad means the essence of all sound. It is the experience of how sound currents, often chanted and linked to breathing, enhances health and consciousness
The meditation techniques utilized in naad yoga employ sound waves and vibrational frequencies to target specific neurotransmitters in the brain, which induce a variety of changes in the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual state of the practitioner.
Think of the human organism as a musical instrument. By changing the patterns and rhythms of sound and breath it is possible to link all the systems of the body that regulate excitement, relaxation, action, reaction, and intelligence. By tuning our inner vibration we can literally resonate ourselves to the heavens, thus creating that state where we feel divine and in touch with our higher source of healing energy.
As our brain, mind, body, and spirit are fluid rather than fixed, this vibration can cause profound changes which are transmitted to our cells, reaching the level of our DNA itself, thus helping to maintain genetic integrity.
The vibrational waves induced by chanting the specific mantras of naad yoga, which I call "Medical Meditations", have the power to cut through the negative thought patterns which so often accompany illness, hence triggering the activation of our own natural healing state.
These innovative meditation techniques can cause healing energy and increased blood flow to be directed specifically to affected organs. This creates a more profound effect on a specific illness when compared to a basic meditation technique, according to many practitioners of Medical Meditation.
Each medical meditation in the book will help maintain general physical, and emotional well being and foster spiritual growth, as well as target one of a vast range of physical and emotional afflictions, including:
- Addictions Chronic Pain High Blood Pressure Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
