Meditation - The SyRoc Way
Meditation - The SyRoc Way
By Daniel Rocha LMT CPT CNS
Meditation is a practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) by distracting one from struggles. Meditating daily is one of the most powerful ways to work with the PSNS. Anger begins with perceiving a threat, working with the mind to alter perceptions, and activating a fight-or-flight response. The feeling of a threat can cause you to overreact to situations, flooding the body with adrenaline. Daily meditation can help an individual by learning to reframe from reacting to every stressful experience, allowing an individual to reflect on what is happening and respond peacefully or walk away. Walking away will always diffuse a situation.
How to begin a meditation practice
Before you begin: First, meditate daily by putting it in your daily routine. Please set a time, place, and duration; remember, it does not have to be lengthy. I do 10 minutes with my yoga, but my bloom sessions always have 2-4 minutes of reflection. Most will want you to sit still and allow the body to rest. However, I have found that doing movement like yoga while listening or watching a meditation session allows my body to relax. My muscles are lengthened, and my breathing improves due to light exercise. The sessions after my bloom therapy session are relaxing because I’m usually in bed. So I can close my eyes and reflect without falling asleep. Openness is an essential ingredient in every meditation. Consciously releasing body tension will allow you to handle whatever arises during meditation.
Meditation helps one understand mental habits by allowing one to observe situations from a neutral vantage point. Constant practice of meditation offers a way to manage anger.
When you are first learning to meditate, the mind will wander. This is why I encourage movement while you’re learning. The goal is to gently and repeatedly relaxing your body, thoughts, and emotions. The ability to distinguish between your inner observer and the chaos in your mind means you are learning to respond with a reasonable and rational mindset.
The more one practices meditation, the more it allows one to discriminate between what is real and what is not—between what is life-threatening and a habitual overreaction. Meditation will enable you to see everything that triggers your sympathetic nervous system, and you can begin to make different choices. Remember that no response is a response. Walking away allows you time to think, reflect, and later respond.
