Episode 145 – How to Find Solutions by Unleashing Inner Peace and Enhanced Well-being with Laurina Carroll
Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a powerful, time-tested technique that has been transforming lives for over six decades. Developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, TM has gained widespread recognition for its ability to reduce stress, improve mental clarity, and enhance overall well-being.
In this episode we dive deep into Transcendental Meditation, exploring its benefits and how it can lead to a more balanced and fulfilling life, a profound practice regularly discussed by one of my teachers, Ray Dalio.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, effortless technique that can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age, culture, or belief system. It involves silently repeating a personalized mantra for 15-20 minutes, twice a day, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. The mantra serves as a vehicle for the mind to transcend its active thinking state and experience a state of deep inner peace and restful alertness.
TM has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety by activating the body’s natural relaxation response. This lowers cortisol levels and increases the production of serotonin and endorphins, leading to a calmer, more balanced state of mind. Regular practice of TM has been shown to improve focus, memory, and cognitive function. By accessing a state of restful alertness, the mind becomes more efficient and better equipped to process information and solve problems, allowing you to focus on solutions.
Transcendental Meditation can lead to increased self-awareness and help you find the internal life force to lead you towards achieving your most important goals in life, the ones that you may have even doubted at some point in your life.
