What is the Difference Between Hypnosis and Meditation?
Hypnosis is the practice of focusing thought. Mediation is the practice of letting go of thought.
If anyone has every said to you “Just let it go” learning to meditate will teach you HOW to let it go.
Neurologically, when you have a negative thought, the neurotransmitters in your brain release chemicals. Those chemicals tell the next neuron that another negative thought is coming, thereby strengthening the neural pathways that automatically think in a negative way. Negativity not only becomes a habit, it becomes a natural brain function.
Meditation lets you learn to drop thought, negative or positive and find a deep calm. It reverses the neurology of negative thinking by practicing letting go of all thoughts.
And it doesn’t have to be practiced in a ritual, at a certain time of day, or for a certain length of time. Meditation can be done waiting in the doctor’s office, on a 5 minute break from work, or upon waking up. It can be practiced anytime you can close your eyes safely for 5-20 minutes.
Meditation provides many health benefits. It lowers blood pressure, reduces anxiety and creates a sense of well-being.
