Meditation For Depression
Depression is far too common and has many different ways of disguising itself. Consistently low moods can interfere with your daily life. Meditation won’t make your symptoms disappear but it can improve your day to day tremendously. The slowing down process during meditation allows you to pay attention to what is going on inside of you at the present moment. Being fully aware of what is, allowing yourself to sit with that, and retraining those thoughts and triggers into a positive.
You will learn how to pay attention to your thoughts and feelings without passing judgment or criticizing yourself. GMS doesn’t involve pushing away these thoughts or pretending you don’t have them. Instead, you will learn to acknowledge them, then let them go. This enables you to look at your life in a much more positive light, as well as giving your self-confidence a boost. You will no longer dwell in the past which will help you lead a much more fulfilling, positive life enabling you to be released from your depression.
What is GMS™
The way we think and what we constantly think about determines what we achieve and fail to achieve throughout our daily lives. Most of us believe we are consciously in charge of our thoughts, but this is far from the truth. According to cognitive neuroscience, our decisions, actions, emotions and behavior depend on the 95% of brain activity that is unconscious, which is influenced by our past conditioning, experiences as well as of the collective cultural mind-set we inherited.
GMS is quite simple, through meditation one enters into a deeper state of suggestibility. Once in this state, Guided Meditation and Suggestion is used to influence emotional, behavioral, and cognitive change to align with your personal goals.
The GMS technique is derived and influenced from using a combination of theories.
