|Can Meditation Bring You Relief From Headache?|
Over the counter medications accept my salutations! You have done enough of service in your own way, to the best of your ability and judgment. You have done everything, but my headache stands intact....Perhaps you don't understand the root cause of headache.
...But before that, well understand the nature of your headache.
Mind is nothing but a bundle of thoughts. Negative thoughts and positive thoughts! When the weight and pressure of the negative thoughts is more than the positive thoughts, you have stress. As a result, you have headache.
Through meditation, the positive thoughts get recharged and slowly the negative thoughts find their way out one by one.
The relation between headache and meditation is very easy to understand through an example. It is as simple as tying and untying a knot. Stress was not dropped on your mind from the heaven. You have achieved it by your wrong living. Try to understand for yourself what made you have this experience of stress. Try to analyze it point by point. Think upon it. Try to workout the possible solutions. In fact, the process of meditation has already commenced within you, when you make such efforts. Your sincere pursuit is bound to take you to the path of confronting your headache in a positive way. Your physical body and the mind work in tandem. Feelings of stress and anxiety direct the nervous system to initiate the response, positive or negative. Stress or no stress situation, headache is the direct outcome of such a situation.
When you are in the process of meditation, you begin to feel that your muscles are relaxed. The flood of stress chemicals in the body, such as endorphins, begins to subside. The pain-killing medications, which have been playing their dubious role on your mind, with a false sense of cure, stand exposed. Meditation sharpens the quality of discrimination, and when once you are able to recognize what is good and what is bad in every aspect of life, you are nearer to your goal of achieving peace.
Initially, meditation looks like a long term treatment, but when you pursue your avowed goal, the results achieved will be permanent.
Therefore in many countries, prominently in Australia, meditation has been accepted as a prominent tool to control headache. The researchers and the scientists are beginning to realize the truth, that the solution for headache lies in understanding the mind, not ruthlessly subverting it, by painkiller medications and injections. The approach of force, will not work well.
“Brutal force has not won anything durable,” said Adolf Hitler. The context of his utterances may be different, but this rule applicable to your headache also. Strong, suppressive medications will not give permanent results.
