Many people think that meditation and hypnosis are the same, with the same results.
Yet if you look at my brain wave scans – one while I am doing self-hypnosis and one while doing meditation you will see a huge difference.
Under self-hypnosis the unconscious mind is fully active in beta waves and the conscious mind is totally calm.
While in the scan of my brain during meditation both sides are completely calm.
We rebooting the brain during meditation similar to that of a computer. This is the only time the brain actually slows down long enough to cultivate mind and grow stronger, and the prefrontal cortex grows thicker… thus we create larger brain mass while meditating.
Even though focusing technique, guided meditation, and self-hypnosis seem to have similar results of creating a relaxed peaceful feeling… there is a big difference between these techniques and meditation.
That’s why mindfulness meditation is so important… it heals the mind and the brain.
