“To discover the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration” — Tesla. Everything that science has taught us about the mind is wrong. No matter how much we try, the mind still cannot be measured, categorized, predicted, or reproduced in any way that would satisfy our burning questions. Indeed, the existence of consciousness is a complete mystery to the scientific world and defies our best attempts to fully explain it. What is it then?

Let’s start right from the beginning. Why do we have self-awareness at all? It is the question that countless philosophers, scientists, and thinkers have been asking for centuries. Regardless of the many theories, we can agree that human beings are unique in nature. After all, animals don’t worry about socially awkward situations or the possibility of their death. How can we explain what simple evolutionary advantage gives us the ability to enjoy aesthetic qualities, such as music or art? 

Developments in neurology invite us to see the brain as a computer and the mind as the software running it. Sadly, this way of thinking has created a world of unhappiness. It’s a world that has conditioned us to live, work, and behave like machines. We are rewarded for working 60 hour-weeks like robots and punished for wanting to be who we truly are. 

 As a result, we experience burnout, depression, anger, and fear. And these side-effects run deep within our society. With the many technological innovations and comforts of contemporary life, the opposite should be true, right? Happiness and bliss should be the norm, but they aren’t. Something feels off with the world. Recent mental health statistics say it all. Stress, anxiety, and depression levels are growing year by year, while proper care continues to be lacking. 

Where is the problem? Is there a solution? 

 The mind does not work like a machine. It’s more like a frequency. And modern science has started seeing it as such, calling it “neurological oscillations”. These neurological oscillations can be in harmony or dis-harmony, depending on your mental condition. But what they don’t teach you at school is that you can actually create this harmony within your own mind. 

When you create this inner harmony, you bring balance to these events you perceive as negative or unfair. What’s more, when you create harmony, you build mental resilience against all the setbacks you encounter throughout your personal journey. But how can you do it? What is the secret trick? Simple: it is relaxation

But it’s a bit more complicated than you might think. For example, binge-watching a Netflix series, scrolling through your Twitter feed, or eating your comfort junk food is not the kind of relaxation I’m talking about. While these activities may temporarily “numb” daily stressors and inner burdens, they are not nurturing in the slightest. And, sometimes, they come with serious costs for your well-being. So what is the right kind of relaxation that most of us deny ourselves?

Make time for meditative relaxation.

Meditative relaxation and the power of mindfulness

“Stress is what we think we should be, relaxation is who we truly are.” — Chinese proverb. 

The right kind of relaxation to help you harmonize your mind consists of a journey inwards. You enter a meditative state that allows you to “hit the reset button” and wash away daily stress and negativity. Being in a meditative state is something human beings can even measure. It changes the frequencies of our brains (yes, it is that powerful!), which is something an EEG scan can detect. And so, people who spend at least 25 minutes per day practicing deep, meditative relaxation are the ones who benefit most. They experience significantly less physical, emotional, and mental distress than those who “relax” by watching TV. 

What else can meditative relaxation do for you? The truth is that you can’t change the world around you nor fully control what’s about to happen to you. But you do have one hidden superpower you may be unaware of. You have 100% control over how you react to things. We are not random elements in the world, responding mechanically to everything that happens to us. Instead, we possess the gift of choosing how we react to whatever is thrown in our way. This gives us the tremendous power to create meaning and make life work in our favor. Mindful relaxation progressively develops this ability. By practicing it regularly, you become better and better at conquering stress and reacting differently, mindfully, to it. In essence, you become a stronger person — you overcome your fears. 

Too good to be true? Well, it has been proven by science! Engaging in a simple mindfulness technique such as visualization or deep breathing creates long-lasting benefits in your brain. Mindfulness not only transforms your way of thinking. It literally creates new superhighways in your brain that are linked to positive emotions, happiness, and an overwhelming feeling of connectedness.
