How Meditation Works

Meditation is perhaps the most important tool we have to harness the power of our minds, cultivates peace and wellbeing, and increases our productivity. Additionally, meditation helps us increase our emotional intelligence, resiliency, and efficacy. A growing number of studies demonstrate that meditation can increase the quality of life for just about anyone.

But why is that true? And how does it work?

1. Activates Various Brainwaves

We have 5 main categories of brainwaves. Each brainwave frequency corresponds to different activities. For instance, most of us spend the majority of our day in Beta. Beta state is the “thinking, functioning, working” brain. If we go to a yoga class, we might find ourselves in Theta. Theta state is associated with calmness and groundedness. When our sleep is dreamless, we usually have gamma waves. But monks who have meditated their entire lives are able to reach this state while awake.

As we turn meditation into a habit, we increase our ability to alter our brainwaves consciously. It turns out that this ability comes from forgiveness, which is one of the phases in the 6-phase meditation.

2. Changes Your Brain Structure

When you switch into a different brainwave frequency, you also activate different areas of the brain. Over time, this changes the physical structure of your brain.

Here are 2 parts of the brain that change because of meditation:

The Lateral Prefrontal Cortex

Called the “Assessment Center,” this part of the brain is involved in balancing emotional responses that originate from the fear center or other parts of the brain. When your Lateral Prefrontal Cortex is active, you’re less likely to take things personally and you’re more likely to override automatic behaviors.

The Medial Prefrontal Cortex

Called the “Me Center,” this part of the brain helps you process information about yourself. That includes behaviors like thinking about your future, self-reflection, daydreaming, inferring about someone else’s state of mind, social interactions, and feeling empathy for others. This is called the “Self-Referencing Center.” After meditation, we begin to draw on this center only when we need to.

3. Strengthens Your Corpus Callosum

You might know that the left hemisphere of our brain specializes in linguistic skills, analysis, and math, while the right hemisphere of our brain specializes in creativity. That’s what people are referring to when they talk about the left-brain-right-brain paradigm.

The problem most of us in the Western world experience is that we tend to strengthen our left brain more, leaving our poor right brain to deteriorate.

These two hemispheres do “talk” to each other through the corpus callosum, feeding ideas to each other. As a result, we become more creative. But this only happens if we strengthen the corpus callosum.

The good news? The 6-Phase Meditation does exactly this.

Do you feel you’re not growing or evolving to your fullest potential?

Is there a particular dream or goal you can’t seem to achieve, despite your best efforts?

Does life leave you feeling like something’s still missing?

Too many people spend their entire lives never truly crossing the gap between where they are and where they want to be.

And so we start believing that only certain people have a mystical power to shape the world according to their thoughts and create opportunities seemingly out of thin air.

But as you’re about to discover, anyone is capable of ascending to this elusive level of self-mastery.
