Self-development through Transcendental Meditation
Just a bare investment of your time into yourself can actually do wonders and help your mind tap into your creative side. Transcendental Meditation, “a natural and simple program for the mind to move to a greater field of happiness”, as quoted by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is actually nothing but a session with your latent brain capacity. “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve” – Napolean Hill Meaning we’ve been naturally blessed with the ability to have a full control over our mind. Our mind itself can be the greatest friend and enemy at the same time. Sometimes the negative thoughts, preconceived notions, self-doubts, or our own beliefs get in the way of success as a barrier. Thus, one should take full possession of their mind and keep a positive attitude. Over 50 years of its inception, TM has been scientifically recorded and validated to enhance creativity. Being creative doesn’t mean you have to be a poet, writer, musician or an actor nor does it require you to be intellectual (intellect is distinct). You can get creative with your innovations, decision-making and ability to keep yourself and others happy around you. Giving your mind the utmost freedom that it needs helps your mind process things in a completely different way. When consciousness is left free to experience itself - that is transcendence. During twice-daily practice of TM, your mind starts settling inward and it transcends angst, agitation, or any pessimistic thoughts, that might be wandering around your mind, leading to profound relaxation which refreshes the mind, body, and soul. America’s first lady of talk shows and a philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey actually got all of her 400 employees to meditate, which eventually became a regular practice at her workplace. In an interview with Dr. Oz, we see an enthusiastic Oprah talking about her incredible experience, how it has helped herself and her employees in improving their physical as well as mental state. “9:00 in the morning, and 4:30 in the afternoon no matter what is going on, we stop and we meditate,” says Winfrey, ”And you can’t imagine what has happened in the company, people who used to have migraines, don’t. People are sleeping better, they are having better relationships and they are interacting with other people better. It’s been fantastic.” In addition to that she says, “I’m a 1000% better person when I do that!” Apart from the many studies and research papers, there’s a hoard of case studies that will inspire you to unravel your inner peace and be the best version of yourself. “I got more and more happiness in the doing of things, ideas seemed to flow more freely.“ — David Lynch, film director “I’ve had an immediate decrease on the level of anxiety, my stress levels… I notice, mostly when I don’t actually do TM that I actually see a rise in these things I feel less creative.”— Kellee Maize, rapper “A new world unfolded in front of me. I realized you can actually deliver all these marketing programs for different companies at the same time. In terms of creativity, focus and enhanced work relationships, TM was top—second to none!” — Cristina Ballestros, marketing manager Join a nearest TM centre near you to get in touch with one of the experts and say good-bye to stress.
