Our busy lives today don’t often allow inner reflection. This type of reflection is crucial in obtaining a sense of self, and a level of genuine happiness that we all want to achieve. If we just keep going and never stop, we lose sight of what’s important in our relationships, our marriages, and our own lives.
It has been shown that meditation therapy is scientifically proven to have many health benefits. As a natural and safe way to heal yourself, it can greatly hep to manage pain and reduce stress. When your mind is calm during meditation, it releases natural painkillers called endorphins.
Endorphins are like neurotransmitters that help you feel better, mentally and physically. Mental pictures and the power of thought are incredibly effective when it comes to healing your mind and body. Whether it’s for pain relief, depression, or digestions problems, meditation has many benefits.
When your mind is open and clear, it calms you. Anxiety and stress is so often the catalyst for all kinds of health and mental problems. Meditation helps open the mind so you are present in the here and now. When our body accepts our internal experiences, it allows us to relax and open up.
A type of therapy that helps do this is mindfulness counselling. With this type of therapy you access the deep, inner feelings that are so often clouded by denial, fear, or just our busy lives. Sharing them in an emotional exchange with another person allows them to be released in a positive way.
In mindfulness therapy you are trying to achieve a state of stable and calm. Sometimes this is achieved by simply doing nothing and letting our mind wander and reflect. Other times you may find it more effective to practice serious meditation, either by yourself or with a qualified professional.
Mindfulness is best practiced in the appropriate environment, as certain conditions contribute to the success of this therapy. This place should not be noisy or disturbing, nor a place where you are easily distracted or provoked. Having a counselor guide you through this process is very helpful the first few times.
Traditional Western health care views are changing, and mindfulness counselling is becoming a beneficial and healthy practice. It can also be integrated as part of marriage counselling. It creates a mind-set of openness and receptiveness which is crucial in solving couple’s problems.
When it comes to marriage counselling, there are may therapies professionals use to assess a couple’s situation and decide which is the best way forward. Igniting that emotional connection once again is key, and this can be difficult to do without a neutral therapist to guide you in the right direction.
A marriage counselor can prompt you to say those things you would never say to your partner if you were alone. With a neutral presence, the atmosphere changes, and with gentle prompting you can reach those deep emotions you’ve both been hiding for so long and let them come to the surface.
It is important to use healthy ways to get us through troubled times, whether they be marriage issues, relationship problems, heightened anxiety, or challenging times. A therapist or marriage counselor can help you find a positive path to happiness.
