The Power of Meditation Relaxation To Relieve Hypertension
I have used self hypnosis and meditation for many years as a way to relieve my borderline hypertension as I’ll do just about anything to not have to take medication unless nothing else works.
Yesterday was a particularly stress filled day for a number of reasons.
Something quite out of the ordinary and potentially damaging to my business happened when a supplier had to shut his doors because fraud, perpetrated against his business, exposed all his clients to risk. I had to hope all his best efforts worked so I could satisfy my clients needs and fortunately that happened.
I also spent a significant part of the day researching, you guessed it, “Stress”. What I didn’t realise at the time, and should have, was that I was telling my subconscious that I should be under stress. I must have typed or written the word stress several hundred times during that period. The now obvious foil would have been to write the word “Relax” also that many times, better if even more.
At the end of the day after visiting my affected clients and explaining what had happened and that it was now resolved I arrived home and just felt out of sorts.
I took my blood pressure.
Now that was a wake up – 198 on 112 and my pulse was certainly not excited at 58. That’s not good territory in anyone’s language.
Meditation Relaxation Mixed With Hypnosis
Is So Powerful
I immediately sat myself down in my special relaxation / trance / meditation chair. It’s great to have one place that’s anchored for relaxing. I did my favourite short relaxation and it took about ten minutes. It’s a mix of hypnosis and meditation and is a great way to release tension and quiet my mind.
I took my blood pressure. Now it was only 145 on 85 pulse 65. Now that’s still not back to my normal systolic but my diastolic was within my reasonable range. Checking again a couple of hours later I was 134 on 86 which is more acceptable.
This lowering of my very high hypertension level all happened by using a meditation relaxation process that took about ten minutes to do and was still working for me several hours later.
On waking this morning I was 142 on 86 and I’m sure when I take ten minutes out to have a relaxation session the top will come down further and hopefully I can get into the mid 120,s and stay in the mid 80’s.
I will not be moved from my strong belief in the mind-body or body-mind connection. This is a great example of the mind setting up the body to behave in a more healthy way.
Its easy to learn Relaxation Meditation and take control
I will end this with a plug for a course I offer (a shameless plug) as an invitation for anyone who suffers from stress to join How To Relax Secret’s Meditation Academy. There you will learn techniques like the one I use. None of the skills taught in my program take more than 9 minutes to do, unless you are really enjoying the journey and you can spend as long as you want in your relaxed meditative state.
I repeat my advice from the top of this Meditation Relaxation post to anyone who suffers prolonged stress please don’t ignore it because it leads to so many ailments and has such a profound and debilitating affect on your life and people around you. See your medical practitioner for regular check-ups and change your lifestyle to ease pressures.
Learn strategies like meditation relaxation or self-hypnosis to enable you to have control of your stress and find peace of mind and in your body through relaxation meditation.
