We know it is possible to hack the nervous system and rewire the mind with the practice of meditation, so if the mind can be reshaped, upgraded and rewired this means our perceptions. physicality, psychology and chemistry change too.

‘The goal of meditation is simple – it is to increase your self-awareness so you can make better decisions in life, it helps you to navigate the mind rather than being a slave to it and helps you to explore different levels of your psyche. It opens the door to deeper self-awareness, self-acceptance and helps to replace negative thoughts and behaviours with new ones that are positive and well-meaning’. (See Meditation Vs Mindfulness )→
The health benefits that accompany this introspective practice are endless and that is why it is and should be, and is so widely used. There are thousands of scientific investigations and publications on the benefits of meditation and they include; lowered blood pressure, increased immunity, higher brain function, brain cell repair, enhanced creativity, concentration, empathy and longevity.
The coolest part about meditation is that It helps to re-wire, re-calibrate and upgrade your mental software through concentration practices, self-awareness and positivity training. Science confirmed this many years back when they started hooking up monks to FMRI and looking at how their brains would light up during deep concentration.
This beguiling collaboration between the ancient east and cutting-edge science has rocked the world in – as – much as it has provided vital evidence in proving the mind is plastic (which means that it can be changed an rewired throughout our lifetime). Knowing the brain can be changed has enormously impacted the treatment of degenerative illness like Parkinsons Disease and Dementia but has also pointed us toward some much more alluring concepts about who we are, what we are and what we are capable of achieving; when we put our minds to something.
