Mindfulness / Meditation


Joe Busuttil – Equator Therapies teaches meditation.

The most effective strategy to effect change is to shift our negative ideas to positive ones. The wonderful revelation about meditation is that we focus on ourselves and become free of negativity. Meditation techniques are just a process of modifying yourself and your ideas, recognising negative thoughts and replacing them with happy and tranquil thoughts.

The ideal approach to meditation is to be very patient because the mind does not always want to focus. Having a sense of expectancy for favourable outcomes might produce uncomfortable pressure, reducing the enjoyment of the event. Meditation provides a fantastic sense of self to those who practice it on a regular basis.

Meditation is a self-healing technique; any sort of stress indicates negative thinking and mental illness. If we do not address mental illness, we may discover that prolonged stress causes physical illness.

Mindfulness is a means of paying attention to and perceiving clearly what is happening in our life. It will not erase life’s stresses, but it will help us respond to them more calmly, which will benefit our heart, mind, and body. It enables us to notice and break free from habitual, often unconscious emotional and physiological responses to ordinary situations. It offers a scientifically researched technique to developing clarity, insight, and comprehension. Mindfulness allows us to be fully present in our lives and at work, which improves our quality of life.

Meditation is intended to bring positive and spiritual inner peace to ourselves and the planet. The world is not a tranquil place, and every soul experiences some level of strain and stress. To achieve mental tranquilly, we must cultivate pleasant and peaceful thoughts. Meditation is one of the most effective ways to transform and nourish one’s innate qualities.

The ABC of mindfulness:

A stands for awareness, which is becoming more aware of what you are thinking and doing, as well as what is happening in your mind and body.

B stands for “Just Being” with your experience. Creating your own story can help you avoid responding on autopilot and feeding problems.

C stands for seeing things and responding more wisely.  We can make better decisions by separating the experience from our reaction.

Mindfulness exercises train you to recognise, endure, and lessen uncomfortable, painful, and even terrifying thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Mindfulness restores a sense of control over our thoughts and emotions. Rather than feeling pushed around by your emotions and thoughts, you learn to control them.

Key Points

– Mindfulness promotes both mental and physical wellbeing.
– Mindfulness includes both focus (a type of meditation) and acceptance. Pay deliberate, nonjudgmental attention to ideas and sensations.
– It takes time to become comfortable with mindfulness techniques. If one method does not work for you, try another one.

Mindfulness improves well being:

– Increasing your ability for mindfulness promotes various attitudes that lead to a happy existence.
– Being mindful allows you to savour life’s pleasures as they occur, become completely engaged in activities, and have a higher capacity to deal with adversity.
– Many people who practice mindfulness find that by focusing on the present now, they are less prone to become consumed with anxieties about the future or regrets about the past, are less concerned with achievement and self-esteem, and are better able to build strong connections with others.

Mindfulness improves physical health:

If increased well-being isn’t enough motivation, scientists have shown that mindfulness methods can boost physical health in a variety of ways. Mindfulness can include:

– Help alleviate stress and treat cardiac disease.
– Lower blood pressure.
– Reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, and ease stomach issues.

Mindfulness improves Mental Health:

In recent years, psychotherapists have turned to mindfulness meditation as a key component in the treatment of a number of issues, including:

– Depression
– Substance Abuse
– Eating disorders.
– Couples’ disputes.
– Anxiety disorders.
– Obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Some experts feel that mindfulness works by teaching people to embrace their experiences, including painful emotions, rather than reacting with aversion and avoidance.

It is becoming increasingly popular to mix mindfulness meditation with psychotherapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy. This discovery makes sense, given that both meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy aim to assist patients gain perspective on irrational, maladaptive, and self-defeating thought patterns.

A less formal approach to mindfulness can also help you stay in the moment and completely engage in your life. You can practice informal mindfulness throughout any task or situation, such as eating, showering, strolling, touching a partner, or playing with a child or grandchild. Attending to the following points will help:

– Begin by paying attention to the sensations in your body.
– Breathe in via your nose, allowing the air to enter your lower belly. – Allow your abdomen to expand entirely.
– Now, breathe out through your mouth.
– Observe the sensations of each inhale and exhale.
– Proceed with the task at hand calmly and with complete deliberation.
– Fully engage your senses. Take note of every sight, touch, and sound so that you can fully appreciate each sensation.
– When you discover your mind has gone away from the activity at hand, gently redirect your focus back to the sensations of the moment.


Sound Therapy healing.

Sound healing, also known as vibrational therapy, employs sound frequencies to improve physical, emotional, and mental health.  Here’s how sound therapy helps heal:

Resonance and Entrainment: A key idea in sound treatment. All objects vibrate at their intrinsic frequency. Objects that resonate with external vibrations vibrate at the same frequency. Sound therapy restores balance by introducing therapeutic frequencies that match the body’s inherent frequencies.

Sound therapy can reduce stress by promoting profound relaxation, akin to meditation. The relaxing sounds can calm the nervous system, reduce tension, and promote tranquilly and well-being.

Sound frequencies can affect brainwave patterns through brainwave entrainment. Binaural beats create a third “beat” in the brain by playing two slightly different frequencies in each ear. This can train the brain for calm, meditation, or focus.

Chakra Balancing: Holistic healing practices believe the body has energy centres, known as chakras, each with particular frequencies and physical and emotional health characteristics. Sound therapy can balance and correct these chakras with certain frequencies.

Release of Blocked Energy: Sound vibrations can penetrate the body, reaching blocked or congested places. Sound therapy releases stress, energetic blockages, and emotional trauma from tissues by vibrating at precise frequencies.

Sound therapy complements conventional medicine and holistic wellbeing with its gentle, non-invasive approach. Working with a skilled sound therapist who can customise your treatment and assure safety and efficacy is crucial.
