Guided Meditations to Overcome DiseasePosted March 14 2017
We have all experienced the dis-ease of modern life.
Disease or disfunction on a physical level may lead us to look for ways to aid in our own healing. Unfortunately, most of modern medicine generally looks for pharmacological prescriptions for each individual symptom rather than looking to the source of the original imbalances. While Western medicine is very helpful in re-setting bones and prescribing a pill to respond to a specific symptom, it does not always treat the whole person or acknowledge that treating a symptom may have very little to do with truly healing from a disease, also known as DIS – EASE.
Examining how the body, mind, and spirit interact and knowing that the state of your mind can literally transform your health is the single most powerful tool that you can utilize to improve your overall health and wellbeing. This does not mean looking at the world through rose tinted glasses, but rather it speaks to specific cognitive training that can give you an internal harmony of mind and spirit that then reflects directly on the state of your body. These systems are completely interconnected, and changing one manifests direct change on another.
A pioneer in mind-body medicine, Dr. Emmett Miller was “one of the first to realize that the mind functioned much like a bio-computer; it perceives, reasons, and feels the way it was programmed to; and this programming can be changed through the use of relaxed, meditation-like states and specific mental image rehearsal.” (Software for the Mind). Real bodily transformation can occur by rewiring our brain to be attuned to the organic internal congruence of our mind, body, and spirit. The easiest way to trigger our body to access that kind of integration is through deep relaxation and meditation. Then the healing of our bodies and minds begins through the gradual rewiring of your brain and nervous system.
We have the power to heal ourselves.
There are various forms of meditation that can help you achieve the goals of living more fully, managing your stress better, and finding deep and meaningful healing. Transcendental Meditation relies on a mantra to still the mind. Metta Meditation is the simple practice of directing loving kindness towards others, and even just taking your awareness to your breathing can become its own meditation. These are all beneficial and beautiful practices, but is there a way to take a more proactive approach in refining our minds in relation to our specific symptomatology? Our good friend Dr. Emmett Miller, a pioneer of Integrative Medicine, would say yes there is!
Dr. Miller has spent decades promoting wellness and healing through his guided meditation audio programs where he combines thoughtful guided meditations, imagery, and beautiful soundscapes together to offer targeting healing to very diverse populations. From healing from surgery, to relieving anxiety, to quitting smoking, weight-loss, and more, Dr. Miller’s programs have already helped thousands of people bring healing into their lives. Luckily, there is a plethora of recordings to choose from, for any symptom under the sun. Feel free to browse his titles here. All of Dr. Miller’s programs help manage stress, find deep healing, and peak performance, while discovering the power, inspiration, and deep love that is both within us and all around us.
