Can you meditate your pain away? In my last blog post, Meditate To Reduce Stress, I wrote about how meditation reduces stress and improves your health. Here, I will specifically address how meditation can reduce pain.

Meditation involves training the mind. By meditating, you can release stress and tension in your body caused by the pain that you are experiencing. When you feel pain, these feelings are not just physical, but are emotional and mental as well. By relaxing and focusing your mind on places and feelings other than the present pain, you can reduce your pain. It may take some time and practice to learn to reduce pain by meditating, but I encourage you to try it.

Meditation is a wonderful way to clear your mind, focus inward, reduce stress, and improve your health. Meditation can assist with health issues such as reducing high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety. In my next blog post, Meditation For Pain Relief, I will write about how meditating can even control physical pain. If you have never meditated before, I encourage you to try it. Although it may seem very difficult at first, with practice, it does get easier.

I am so saddened by the tragic events which occurred at the Boston Marathon. My heart is heavy wondering how someone can commit such heinous crimes. So senseless! Such disregard for human life. How can so many innocent lives be lost and harmed at an event which is symbolic of perseverance, strength, hope, and inspiration for its participants and spectators?

How do we recover from the images we have seen and cries we have heard? How do we cope with our feelings of anger, sadness, helplessness, fear, and even hate for those who perpetuated these horrific acts of violence?
