Do you ever wonder why all businesswomen are praising meditation as one of their secrets to success? Let’s dive in to reap the benefits of it now.
What Is Meditation
Meditation is training your mind to remove the stress accumulated in your body and mind. Meditation is the process of surrender, observing your thoughts without judgment to let them go. It’s freeing yourself, de-cluttering your mind from the negative, revolving, toxic thoughts eating up your mental energy.
Meditation is giving a freedom ticket to your mind. It’s time when you meditate TO SURRENDER aka:
- Let go of any responsibilities.
- Let go of any expectations.
- Take yourself less seriously.
- Finding joy in life.
- Is being present as it is.
The Purpose Of Meditation
1. Reboot Your Brain Aka What is Meditation For Your Brain
“Take your brain to the gym” as Emily Fletcher called it. Why? Because let’s be honest: your brain is getting weaker or stronger. It creates filters to make sense of the world but let’s face it, we are bombarded by information daily and I bet, you prefer to have a stronger brain like me. To do so, understanding how your mind works to harness its potential is vital.
Before the demand was a predatory attack, the tiger trying to kill you. Now, the demand is all the daily challenges you have to face: the umpteenth email popping in your inbox, the presentation to deliver in a few days, the colleague getting on your nerves, [fill in the blank].
2. Stress less & Being More Productive
When you meditate, you saturate your brain with dopamine and serotonin. Not only you’re giving a reboot to your brain, but you also have access to your own happiness and fulfilment. As I said before, your happiness is only defined by you.
Meditation is the fuel, the nourishment you need to have access to your own fulfilment, without any external validation. When you do so, you’re giving up more space to “your own GPS” aka your intuition to guide and inspire you… and your intuition is your best ally!
Why Meditation Is Not Removing Your Thoughts
This idea or concept is real misinformation. You cannot stop your mind from thinking like you cannot stop your heart from beating. We’re wired to think, and we have no control over that. On the contrary, having thoughts when you meditate is a sign that it works!
As you meditate, the brain is also using thoughts to de-clutter your mind but, this time, these thoughts come from a place of total surrender where there is no expectation or additional layers of burden, and this is the TRUTH about meditation.
What Is Happening In Your Brain When You Meditate
Before meditation, your brain is buzzing like a bee aka very active.
After meditation, your brain is less active which means more focused, and resilient to face any challenges.
When you meditate, your brain is saturated with the “bliss chemicals” dopamine and serotonin, and it’s going to love it. No need for drugs, alcohol, or addictions to experience the impact of “bliss chemicals.”
Meditation helps you to keep your full capabilities aka to stay the leader, the captain of your ship when you face difficult circumstances or events.
You can see from the above picture that when you meditate, there is less activity in the brain (let me explain): your nervous system is calmer. This new state is helping you to be less reactive to stress, and to be more focused and resilient daily.

“Day 15: Ziva brings me so much peace, clarity and harmony in my life motivating me to set more empowering boundaries and to live with grace and beauty.
