Dynamic Meditation helps in reducing anxiety and stress related problems: Dr Sanjeev Singh Rawat
Sparing 15-30 minutes daily for doing ‘Meditation’ is very essential for keeping mind relaxed
Ludhiana: An online study was recently jointly conducted by Department of Yoga, DMCH and Gurukula Kangri Vishwavidyalaya, Haridwar about effects of ‘Dynamic Meditation’ in reducing anxiety and other stress related problems.
Sparing 15-30 minutes daily for doing ‘Meditation’ is very essential for keeping mind relaxed, particularly in present situation, when people are already facing lot of fear due to spread of COVID pandemic. This technique helps in controlling anxiety and unlike traditional meditation; it is done at much faster pace which brings in a lot of different experience for a person who does it
Dr Rawat suggests, Dynamic Meditation is preferred to be done in the early morning, when there is absolute silence and a person can experience a breath of absolutely fresh air.
This sort of meditation can be done alone, but to start with it can be helpful to do it with other people. The whole process of such meditation lasts one hour and has five stages.
There are a total five stages of this
First Stage: 10 minutes
Breathing systematically through the nose, let breathing be intense, deep, fast, without rhythm, with no pattern – and concentrating always on the exhalation. The body will take care of the inhalation. The breath should move deeply into the lungs. Do this as fast and as hard as you possibly can until you literally become the breathing. Use your natural body movements to help you to build up your energy. Feel it building up, but don’t let go during the first stage.
Second Stage: 10 minutes
EXPLODE! … Let go of everything that needs to be thrown out. Follow your body. Give your body freedom to express whatever is there. Go totally mad. Scream, shout, cry, jump, kick, shake, dance, sing, laugh; throw yourself around. Hold nothing back; keep your whole body moving. A little acting often helps to get you started. Never allow your mind to interfere with what is happening. Consciously go mad. Be total.
Third Stage: 10 minutes
With arms raised high above your head, jump up and down shouting the mantra, “Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!” as deeply as possible. Each time you land, on the flats of your feet, let the sound hammer deep into the sex center. Give all you have; exhaust yourself completely.
Fourth Stage: 15 minutes
STOP! Freeze wherever you are, in whatever position you find yourself. Don’t arrange the body in any way. A cough, a movement, anything, will dissipate the energy flow and the effort will be lost. Be a witness to everything that is happening to you.
Fifth Stage: 15 minutes
Celebrate! With music and dance express whatsoever is there. Carry your aliveness with you throughout the day.
