Science Proves Meditation and Hypnotherapy Makes Us Happier

When we enter the healing peaceful state of meditation or hypnotic trance, we enter a very special place within our mind . We have opened a door into our minds where the theta and alpha brain waves can occur simultaneously.
This cannot happen when we are awake or when we are asleep we can only find this peaceful healthy, healing, rhythm in deep hypnosis or meditation.
It is here we can access the very deepest part of our consciousness, the sub conscious mind. Here in Alpha through Theta, brainwaves become a lot less random and a lot more organised so we can create permanent healthy changes within our minds.


Over many years , MRI tests at Harvard, Wisconsin, and Princeton have proven this mental training through meditation and Hypnotherapy can itself change the inner workings and circuitry of the brain.
It also increases the gamma waves making the mind clearer and more organised, more easily controlled and making us feel happier. Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the Univeristy of Wisconsins new $10 million W.M. Keck Laboratory for Functional Brain Imaging and Behaviour has conducted some of the latest research . Davidson’s research is consistent with his earlier work that pinpointed the left prefrontal cortex as a brain region associated with happiness and positive thoughts and emotions. Davidson says his newest results from the meditation study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in November,  showing that mental training through meditation (and presumably other disciplines such as hypnotherapy) can itself change the inner workings and circuitry of the brain. Using functional magnetic resonance imagining (fMRI) on meditating monks, Davidson found that their brain activity — as measured by the EEG — was especially high in this area.
The meditation novices showed only a slight increase in gamma wave activity while meditating, but some of the monks produced gamma wave activity more powerful than any previously reported in a healthy person.

The monks who had spent the most years meditating had the highest levels of gamma waves, he added. In previous studies, mental activities such as focus, memory, learning and consciousness were associated with the kind of enhanced neural coordination found in the monks. The intense gamma waves found in the monks have also been associated with knitting together disparate brain circuits, and so are connected to higher mental activity and heightened awareness, as well.
“What we found is that the trained mind, or brain, is physically different from the untrained one,” he said. .
Regular meditation and /or hypnotherapy (where you are guided to the deep state of meditation or trance) is scientifically proven to make healthy positive changes to your life. Some people find it hard to master meditation, everything comes with practice. If there is something you need to change in your life? Patterns from the past that need to change?  Create a more positive future through hypnotherapy and meditation.  Available to you at Kundalini House.
