If I also told you that this tool can be developed by anyone and for free and unlimited, and that everything is scientifically proven, would you believe me?

Well believe me. This tool is meditation.

But what is meditation?

Meditation is a technique that, when correctly developed and used, leads the being to deep states of relaxation, which has been proven to have strong healing properties.

How is this tool so effective?

First, we must know that every human being has the potential to create, love, dream, create a desired life. Many cases have been studied of how resilience, which is a property that we can all develop, allowed people to completely change their lifestyle; or how the passion and clarity of others created social revolutions that changed the history of art, science, technology, religion, science, politics or economics.

This potential is present in every human being, but unfortunately experiences, thoughts, emotions occur that undermine this genius that we all carry within, relegating our actions from how we face life, according to the place that each one believes they have in it.

What has been proven is that all that stress that we experience, a product of fear, anger, anguish, anxiety, jealousy and any feeling that made or makes us feel bad, has a powerful effect on our being.

Stressed cells

Physically, the stress experienced is stored and accumulates in the cells of our body, producing different degrees of alteration, both physical, mental and emotional.

On a physical level, it produces changes in the functioning of the immune system, responsible for maintaining the health of the body, reaching the point of producing a large number of diseases. This occurs basically because the accumulated stress causes the body's cells to close and not receive the necessary nutrients, the toxins inherent to its functioning do not come out of the cell, and it does not communicate correctly with other important cells. When the accumulated stress reaches a certain level, illness occurs.

At the level of the brain, stress causes less blood to flow to the frontal lobe, responsible for forming creative thoughts. With this, the individual is less effective in finding new solutions in their daily lives, reinforcing harmful patterns, which causes the neural connections associated with facing challenges to be reaffirmed, focusing attention on the problem and not the solution, generating states. of dependency and resistance to change, preferring to stay in their comfort zone.

On an emotional level, it can produce a feeling of reluctance, heaviness, monotony, or of constantly struggling, to the point of being anxious or anguished, even falling into states of depression.

Furthermore, as the physical, mental and emotional systems are interconnected, stress, if not treated correctly, generates its own system in which it feeds back on itself.

To understand this interconnection, let's look at the example of how personal trust is generated, which is the basis for daring to face the constant changes necessary to achieve a better standard of living. First, for this sensation to occur effectively, there must be the neural connection in the brain associated with the fact that we will be able to face the challenge.

This, in turn, activates the order to the adrenal gland, which must be functioning correctly, to secrete adrenaline and norepinephrine - which are the chemicals responsible for producing the feeling of personal confidence - at the correct intensity.

If in this process we have any association that things are not going to work out, or the pituitary gland, hypothalamus or adrenal gland are not functioning optimally, this emotion will not be generated correctly, reinforcing that we will not be able to achieve it, producing more stress.

The Liberation

Let's get back to the question, how is meditation so effective?

Each of these parts that intervene in the correct functioning of the immune system, responsible for health; The limbic and endocrine systems, responsible for memory, attention, creativity and emotions, are at their base a set of cells.

Our body is a large community made up of 50 trillion cells, the smallest living particle that a human being has.

All this restrictive emotional load that we receive since we were children is stored in the cells, altering the great potential that every human being has.

What correct meditation does is induce the brain into states of relaxation, which are called alpha, theta or delta states, ensuring that during the period that we are in a meditative state, we change our mood to greater peace and tranquility, and therefore Likewise, the environment of all the cells of the body is also soaked in this emotion.

What science has proven is that in this correct meditative state, stored stress is released, since the body's cell reopens to its environment, receives the necessary nutrients, toxins are released from within and it communicates correctly again. with other cells.

This prolonged practice normalizes the correct functioning of the being at the physical, mental and emotional levels, as a result of the fact that the cells operate correctly again.

Why do I emphasize correct meditation?

Many people today dedicate themselves to meditating and/or doing yoga, but not with the appropriate intensity and frequency.

The brain, which is what one must control to achieve deep meditation, is a muscle that must be trained. Meditation is just like going to the gym; You need to go constantly and acquire new habits to get results. If we do it once a week for 2 hours, and nothing in the remaining 6 days, we will not obtain the powerful results that this practice delivers. This, like any great change, requires discipline and perseverance.

Another mistake that is often made is that people give themselves space to meditate but do not take this practice into their daily lives. What meditation seeks in the first instance is to train the mind to become aware of itself, to be able to notice when we are under the influence of fear, anger, anguish, anxiety or any other restrictive emotion, since that this is what we must heal, these restrictive memories that are found in our memory, in our cells.

This is the importance of the habit of self-observation, which is to integrate meditation to be aware of ourselves, and to identify when emotions are invading us in our daily lives, since if we are not aware and act through them, We feed this emotion again, those memories, negatively loading our being, undermining the way we face life.

These reactions are what generate all the evils that exist in today's society, a product of fears and insecurities that life itself has left us, such as traces, marks and unhealed wounds that we are reflecting in our life and society.

Enhance our life

In my book The Habit of Self-observation, I seek to explain why we are the way we are and how our internal machinery works, and I provide a series of exercises to heal these wounds and enhance our lives, since we are all an important piece of this great planetary society. , with something to contribute beyond just having a good time.

If society incorporated this habit of self-observation and we were reunited with the great love we carry within, life would no longer be the same. There would be political, economic, social and cultural integration, we would work for a cause united for the well-being of all and not just a few. We would be able to make better decisions aligned with our dreams and not derailed by our fears.

The reason for my project is human awakening, awakening to understand that it is in each one of us, in you, in me, in each one of us to contribute with one more grain, to make a difference with love, to cultivate courage, to believe in dreams, to be an agent of integration in any area in which each one develops.

It is daring to dream, trusting in life and that if we act out of love we will be rewarded. I say this with reasons, since since I started on this path, my life has been a constant learning adventure that has led me each time to be happier, to live with meaning. It's just about delivering value, reaching people, and little by little material things will arrive.

What would be my final proposal?

Meditate, meditate, meditate…, observe yourself. Clean every corner of shadow inside you and observe it, give it consciousness, give it love, dare to live your dream and life will give you more and more. Dare to wake up!
