Sweden is known as a country with “Free life, high tax and more suicide”. The freedoms and liberties enjoyed by Swedes have not made them happier people in certain ways. Meditation effectively calms your mind and settles your mood. It helps you realize what is truly important in life and helps you identify what has been going wrong in your life. Buddhist philosophy and meditation help you to find peace, contentment and direction in life. It also transforms your life enabling you to achieve whatever positive goals you may want to achieve. Hence Buddhism and mediation provide solutions to people’s problems and everyone in the twenty first century need to learn about it.

My motto is “When you heal your mind, you heal your body”. Your mentality and emotions affect your internal organs and your entire life. Therefore, your emotional health determines your physical health. I help and guide people to achieve deep levels of concentration. When you reach deeper levels of consciousness through meditation, it rewires your brain.
Meditation makes the mind positive changing or affecting your hormones and the frequency of brain waves known as gamma, beta, alpha, theta and delta. For instance, it reduces the “stress hormone – cortisol” which is an age – accelerating hormone. Meditation also reduces adrenaline while increase the “happy hormones” serotonin and oxytocin. Serotonin improves your mood and gives you a sense of well-being, also increases DHEA which is known as the “longevity molecule”, also creates GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) making you feel calm, also increases endorphins giving the body a “natural high”, also increases the growth hormone and melatonin which is known as the “sleep molecule”.
Meditation decreases the higher frequency of brain waves to a lower frequency resulting in an increased level of ability to have more time between thoughts. This activates different centres in the brain and the slower wavelengths allow a person to have more time to be selective of one’s thoughts. Thus, these changes in the hormone levels and the frequency of brain waves created during meditation can change your body and thereby your life. Hence when you train your mind positively it helps you cope with sadness, anger and results in an overall better immune system.
