Feels like this will be a short post. Back to work today after 3 days off. Cedar fever is gone, but I had a bit of a nosebleed this afternoon, another experience I haven’t had in years.
Fell asleep on the sofa watching a video; woke and thought it was much later. I am tired.
Sitting tonight, I spent time on breathing with each chakra and the surrounding area.
Noticed a lot of activity in my brain, around my head. I feel it with the skin of my scalp and forehead, but it’s coming from the inside. Parts of my brain are lighting up while I meditate.
There’s energy moving. There seems to be more movement on the left side.
Science confirms that meditation rewires the brain, and that’s what I think is going on. By sitting, I am allowing my brain to rewire itself in a smarter, happier way than I have ever consciously been able to achieve.
Maybe the promise of enlightenment is really an inducement to get people to just sit and rewire and become happier and smarter people. That’s still pretty good motivation!
I’ve read somewhere that meditation is the only non-drug way to change one’s emotional setpoint to be happier.
When I find studies on this topic, I’ll share them here.
