Meditation Exercises

Meditation exercises can be practiced by individuals of all ages and have several health benefits. The two most important benefits of these exercises are to provide complete mind and body relaxation and relief from stress and pain. Salient benefits of practicing meditative exercises include lowering and controlling high blood pressure, improving premenstrual syndrome (PMS), removing depression and fatigue, and strengthening the immune system to fight against infections and illness.

Studies have also revealed that by following meditation techniques and practicing exercises, you can strengthen your autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and the skeletal and musculature system. One of the physical effects of practicing meditation is that it helps in decreasing blood lactate. Lactate is a substance that is secreted by your muscles and is the root cause for overt feelings of anxiety. Meditation will not only help in controlling anxiety but also decreasing the blood pressure, heart rate, and respiration rate.

Most Common
Meditation Exercises

There are several exercises that you can follow and there are specific exercises for beginners. Before you start practicing meditation, you need to focus on place, posture, practice and problems. Meditation needs to be practiced everyday and the time can be increased from 5 minutes to 60 minutes over a period of time.

Deep breathing exercise

This is one of the easiest and most common exercise that you can practice on a daily basis. The key lies in breathing deeply and from the abdomen. You should be able to feel your breathing coming right from the abdomen and going out of your nostrils. The aim of this exercise is to get more and more oxygen into your body and this helps in reducing anxiety and tension.

Mindfulness Meditation

Extensive research has proven that by practicing mindfulness meditation, it is easier to heal and cope with the stress and fears associated with illnesses, cancer included. This type of meditation is also known to reduce chronic pain and depression. In mindfulness meditation, you can learn to focus your mind on sound, sensations, thought, breathing and taste. Some of the ways to practice mindfulness meditation is by meditating in a quiet environment and focusing on your body movements, gestures, and simple actions among others.

Tranquility Meditation (Samatha)

This is a Buddhist meditation exercise and its basic purpose is to calm your mind and help it to concentrate. In this exercise the focus is on inhalation and expiration that is the object of concentration. This practice leads to samadhi. This is a state in which the mind is calm and focused, that is the basis for deeper practices.

Insight or Analytic Meditation (Vipassana)

This is another Buddhist meditation exercise whose primary objective is to help you in realization of truth of "no self" and impermanence, that is to experience things as they really are. In this exercise, you will need to focus on any event that is occurring moment by moment in your mental continuum and in your body. During the exercise you have to stay with events without judgment. This type of meditation can be practiced while walking or sitting.

What clients say

I went to Massimo for a healing session in which I experienced calmness and opening of my heart.
All the sadness I had as a child and images from my childhood went by and were gone. An hour treatment went by like ten minutes. In other times I experienced very deep meditations, quietness, yet very alert and awake. Thanks Massimo for helping me get in touch with the healing force within me.

- Liat, Netanya, Israel

 

Dear Massimo, thanks so much for your healing sessions. So many things changed and improved since the beginning of your treatments. You are very gifted and all you are doing arises from the depth of your heart and the depth of the knowledge you channel. I highly recommend you as a healer.

- Zvi, Tel Aviv, Israel

 

Good luck: with this single word I can express what I feel to have met Massimo.
I have been knowing him for 10 years and working with him I have done a path to awareness.
He is a good teacher, sincere, honest, which guides you to the truth and peace that our heart desires and can achieve.
 
- Tiziana, Arezzo, Italy

 

For me, healing means integrity and the consistency of living my daily life, relationships and job in the way of my true "I".
Massimo has the rare ability to lead people, and therefore me, to
transform obstacles that stand between you and what you want to realize in available energy. He does so with great respect, patience and lack of judgment.
Massimo, thanks for all that I get from you.

- Maria, Udine, Italy





When Massimo gave me healing sessions online, I experienced him as a sensitive and dedicated man who has the gift to sense into deeper layers of the soul and affect them in a gentle and non intruding way. His careful way of approaching the pain in my eyes and the feedback he gave me from his sensitive perceptions helped me to gain trust and confidence in my healing process.
