2. Passive Meditation and quieting the mind

The Max Meditation System TM was developed by Dr. Gudni Gudnason who has travelled the globe for more than 35 years exploring the phenomena of the mind and the nature of the world’s people. During his travels, he acquired the knowledge of ancient meditation methods from prominent teachers in India and Tibet. The Max Meditation System TM is a fusion of the ancient techniques of Yoga with the modern science of psychology and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This integration of old and new philosophies produces a profoundly effective system for successful meditation.

Q: What is meditation?
Meditation can be defined as a practice where an individual focuses their mind on a particular object, thought or activity to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being and can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.
Q: Why meditate?
New research is also showing that meditation restores the brain. A landmark study conducted by Massachusetts General Hospital found that as little as eight weeks of meditation not only helped people feel calmer but also produced changes in various areas of the brain, including growth in the areas associated with memory, empathy, sense of self, and stress regulation. Several clinical studies have documented that meditating may help people stay healthier, sharpen mental focus and gain more power over their emotions.
Q: What Happens in Your Brain When You Meditate?
Using modern technology like MRI scans, scientists have developed a more thorough understanding of what's taking place in our brains when we meditate. The overall difference is that our brains stop processing information as actively as they normally would. We start to show a decrease in beta waves, which indicate that our brains are processing information, even after a single 20-minute meditation session if we've never tried it before.
Q: Can meditation really improve my health?
Yes, meditation can make you healthier, both physically and psychologically! Researchers have published hundreds of studies investigating the health benefits of meditation, and the results consistently indicate that people who meditate regularly have better health than those who don’t. Besides, meditation can actually reduce anxiety and lift depression.
Q: Do I have to give up my religious beliefs to meditate?
Definitely not. You can apply the basic principles and techniques of meditation to any spiritual or religious tradition or orientation. In fact, many people find that meditation methods with Eastern roots actually deepen their connection to their own Western faith by supplementing prayer and belief with some direct experience of the love and presence of God.
Q: How can I find the time to meditate in my busy schedule?
The great thing about meditation is that it doesn’t really take all that much time. As soon as you pick up the basics, you can begin by practising for five or ten minutes each day. Mornings are generally best, at least to start with as it makes a tremendous difference in your state of mind for the rest of the day.
Q: Can I meditate in a chair or lying down instead of cross-legged on the floor?
Yes. you can meditate in many different positions. Traditional meditation postures include sitting, standing, walking, lying down, and moving in particular patterns. Basically, any position that you can comfortably sustain is appropriate for meditation.
Q: How to deal with distractions like pain and itching during meditation?
During meditation practice many times you experience body pain or you feel like itching or you feel that some insect is walking on your back, just witness all this. Soon it will be over. However, if the pain becomes too much to bear then just adjust your meditation posture consciously to make yourself comfortable and continue the meditation practice.
Q: What shoudl I do if I keep falling asleep while I meditate?
During meditation we naturally tend to start breathing slower and slower. This in turns ties in with our brain waves slowing down. The best way to stop yourself from falling asleep during a meditation or if you feel that you are going too deep into a meditative state then you can consciously increase the rate of breathing to wake the body and mind up.
Even when you fall asleep during a meditation, you are still meditating and the body knows what it needs to recharge. You will often find that you feel more refreshed after falling asleep during meditation than you do waking up in the morning.
Q: What should I do if I can't slow down or get into a meditative state?
You can focus on your breathing for a couple of minutes when you start and ensuring that you breathe rhythmically. After a couple of minutes slow down your breathing so that you comfortably breathe similarly as you would while sleeping. You can also place the tip of your tongue on your palate to create a connection to your pineal gland and activating the 3rd Eye, this also helps in entering a deeper meditative state.
Q: How do I know if I'm meditating the right way?
The great thing about meditation is that you can’t do it wrong, short of not doing it at all.
As for knowing when your meditation is “working,” you might not notice any flashing lights or sudden jolts of energy. Instead, you may recognize subtler shifts. Don’t look for results, or like the proverbial watched pot, your meditation may never boil. Just trust in the process and let the changes take care of themselves.
Q: How to know if I am making progress?
Since everybody in this world is different, it is difficult to give a general answer to this question. But still here is this: You will start feeling some positive changes in your life. One of the most visible changes will be an increase in the depth of your awareness. It will happen very slowly but it is bound to happen. You may also notice that you have better control over your emotions.
