I remember when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi introduced Transcendental Meditation back in the early 70’s. People felt the difference, as they got into their deeper states of relaxation and emotional freedom. Here is a quote from an article on Transcendental Meditation and Women:
"Brain Waves and Meditation
Neuroscientists have found that during TM practice, the brain produces high-power alpha waves. This distinct brain pattern corresponds to the state of relaxed inner wakefulness—serenity, expansion and bliss.
But that’s not all. The alpha waves become synchronous, rising and falling together. This coherence often spreads throughout the brain and is strongest in the pre-frontal cortex—the seat of your brain’s executive judgment."
Regardless of the path to these beneficial brain states, they have been proven under laboratory conditions to be effective and trustworthy. They impact the way we live in harmony with the world. Here is something from the Huffington Post:
“Research on meditation has also shown a wide range of psychological benefits. For example, a 2012 review of 163 studies that was published by the American Psychological Association concluded that Transcendental Meditation had relatively strong effects in reducing anxiety, negative emotions, trait anxiety and neuroticism while aiding learning, memory and self-realization.”
Kundalini has the same effects and impacts on the neuroplasticity of the brain and possibly even more. The brain is not a static blob of tissue. It is electric, magnetic, and it responds to our thinking patterns. When we raise the energy of the kundalini, it is like taking your brain through a brain-frequency power-wash.
