Harvard Unveils MRI Study Proving Meditation Literally Rebuilds The Brain’s Gray Matter In 8 Weeks

BY FEELGUIDE • NOVEMBER 19, 2014 • HEALTH, SPIRITUALITY, THE HUMAN BRAIN

Test subjects taking part in an 8-week program of mindfulness meditation showed results that astonished even the most experienced neuroscientists at Harvard University.  The study was led by a Harvard-affiliated team of researchers based at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the team’s MRI scans documented for the very first time in medical history how meditation produced massive changes inside the brain’s gray matter.  “Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day,” says study senior author Sara Lazar of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and a Harvard Medical School instructor in psychology. “This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.”

Sue McGreevey of MGH writes: “Previous studies from Lazar’s group and others found structural differences between the brains of experienced meditation practitioners and individuals with no history of meditation, observing thickening of the cerebral cortex in areas associated with attention and emotional integration. But those investigations could not document that those differences were actually produced by meditation.”  Until now, that is.  The participants spent an average of 27 minutes per day practicing mindfulness exercises, and this is all it took to stimulate a major increase in gray matter density in the hippocampus, the part of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection.  McGreevey adds: “Participant-reported reductions in stress also were correlated with decreased gray-matter density in the amygdala, which is known to play an important role in anxiety and stress. None of these changes were seen in the control group, indicating that they had not resulted merely from the passage of time.”

“It is fascinating to see the brain’s plasticity and that, by practicing meditation, we can play an active role in changing the brain and can increase our well-being and quality of life,” says Britta Hölzel, first author of the paper and a research fellow at MGH and Giessen University in Germany.

THE MONTHLY ASPECTARIAN

The Laws of Attraction,
Enlightenment and Sex

There are two fundamental energies that are in a constant struggle for dominance over our lives. They are yang and yin, which means positive and negative, or attraction and repulsion. These two forces create the unnumbered pairs of opposites throughout creation.

     We may find ourselves attracted to certain things and repulsed by others. Some are attracted to money; others repulsed by it. Some are attracted to nurturing relationships; others repulsed by them. But these principles do not always function on the conscious level: While most people say they are attracted to nurturing relationships, some consistently have unhealthy and abusive ones. Each principle is trying to overrule and control the other. The resulting continuum of distortion and lack of clarity is the battlefield upon which our lives are being played. The ancients referred to this dynamic state of confusion as the “Dance of Maya” or the “Dance of Illusion.” In Christianity, it is “sin” or “the devil;” in Taoism, it is negative and positive energy.

     Our negative and positive life experiences, and the density, clarity and level of energetic charge or “spark” that functions within our bodies, determine the quality of life we live. Some people may have less energetic density, less clarity or flow of energy in certain areas of their human experience, and thereby have more negative experiences in certain aspects of their lives and more positive experiences in others. For various reasons, this can fluctuate, and we may experience highs and lows in different areas of life. Many times, because of unbalanced energies and without understanding why, like a moth drawn to a flame, we are drawn to certain negative experiences only to be hurt. At its core, however, we are really being drawn into various situations to experience the cascading, endless array of negatives and positives of life. By increasing our conscious awareness and command over the energy in our lives, we gain the ability to live in balance, and experience a greater sense of freedom, insight and fulfillment within both negative and positive experiences.

     It is important to understand that the vibrations and attractions during sex are the same magnetizing energies that are at work in our daily lives. Everything, from the job we choose, the clothes we wear, our mates, family and friends, and the emotions we feel, to the mental constructs we function within, are expressions of this same interplay of the fundamental force of attraction and repulsion. When left uncultivated and unbalanced, the yang/yin forces at work within our lives are much like being in a battle in the midst of a hurricane. One of our greatest achievements begins when we learn to take command over these forces. Like a hurricane, at its very center, there is silence. It is from this core that we learn to proactively witness and command our life changes.

     How do we let go and remove ourselves from the hectic and chaotic turmoil we experience? How do we enter into a more awakened and healing phase of being in command, balance and stillness? This can be accomplished when we learn to work within ourselves energetically, and cultivate, transform, and heal our energetic forces that are at work in our lives.

 

Our lives begin with the basic principle we call “sex.” Sex (what we call sex) is really the process for activating life and reconnecting to the force of life. Sex and the sexual impulse resonates a magnetic power and attraction, which activates and taps into the bioelectrical energy, called Chi, Spirit, Life Force, etc., that permeates creation. When our father’s sperm pierces our mother’s egg upon conception, a simultaneous energetic reaction takes place. The positive and negative, male and female, yang/yin energies combine. This bioelectrical, creative spark of life force within the sperm and egg attracts the individual soul.

     Sexual energy is perhaps the most primary connection to our existence; it is the underlying principle and vehicle for expressing and activating life. It is imperative to embrace, educate and heal our relationship with our sexual energy.

     The experience of sex is arousing to our entire body, mind, emotional, and energetic systems. But what makes the experience of sex so extraordinary is that the same energy that is activated to create life has tremendous healing and awakening power. The empowering secret is learning how to channel this energy to enhance and develop our personal lives as well as empower various life skills.

     Due to various stressful events, trauma and misinformation, many people have learned to block their energetic connection, attraction and awareness to sex. While others recognize the attraction to sex, they don’t necessarily understand in depth how they can work with this energy to actually attract deeper levels of understanding, achieve financial success, better careers, harmonious relationships, etc. Although sexual energy itself is pure, it can be channeled knowingly or unknowingly; it can be used by the forces of attraction and repulsion, yang and yin, to work for or against one’s well-being.

     You may ask what is the importance of sexual energy over all other energetic expressions; why such a fuss? Simply stated, sexual energy is the only energy that can actually multiply itself. It can create another life and it can create more personal energy. When properly channeled, it can be used to attract a mate, finances, physical, mental and emotional healing, and spiritual growth.

     All other energies are simply an exchange of various polarities: anger, fear, worry, hatred are constantly being exchanged for friendliness, courage, love and joy. The path to becoming the eye within the hurricane starts with understanding energy, and understanding that sexual energy is a part of our fundamental make up. By learning how to work with our sexual energy, as well as with the various other energies at work in our lives, we enter a path that consciously enables us to live a full and enriched life towards enlightenment.

     The energy of sex does not require a sexual act with another or alone. When we learn to internally tap into, cultivate and move this pure sexual activating life force, we can open blocked channels, organs, glands, bones and emotions and experience deeper love, freedom, joy and bliss.

     The ability to go beyond ordinary sex and utilize our sexual energy to unveil our Enlightened Higher Self is within us. Everything we have received, we have attracted; the beautiful and joyful as well as the negative and stressful experiences start from within. The ancient masters, as well as today’s scientists, state that everything is made of energy. Understanding this fundamental principle, wouldn’t you think it important to understand the language and laws of energy, and especially sexual energy, in order to manifest our lives with ease, comfort, joy and love?
