Fears and stress alarms our autonomic nervous-system into a “fight or flight” reaction which is soothed down by the parasympathetic nervous-system when the “danger” has passed.
Continuous fears and stress keep us in the “fight or flight” state and puts an enormous stress on our immune system. Therefore meditation is such a great tool to help us calm down and give our body systems some rest.
Usual forms of meditation try to soothe the sympathetic nervous-system by using breathing exercises, slow movements or concentration exercises.
Sahaja Yoga Meditation directly activates the parasympathetic nervous-system which calms down the sympathetic “fight and flight” reactions. We automatically calm down without having to put any effort into it.
“Good” neurotransmitters like serotonin, endorphins and acetylcholine are poured out which also strengthens and supports our immune system. Our anxieties dissolve and we feel calm, joyful and positive.
