Many people think that meditating and increasing your energy are not related, especially if you picture someone meditating it doesn’t seem like they’re doing much, which funnily enough is actually the aim of many forms of meditation. But it's been shown that it can be a highly effective way to increase energy and de stress. The laboratory of neuro imaging at the University of southern California claims that the average person may have up to 70,000 thoughts per day – which makes me feel tired just thinking about it. Now if these thoughts involve lots of stressful stuff it could result in your hormone levels becoming unbalanced, which in turn may affect your immune system and bam you feel exhausted. There’s also research that suggests that meditation helps regulate sleep and may boost DHEA a hormone linked to energy that decreases as we age. It sounds all good, but there are reported side effects which before I did the research I knew nothing about such as nausea, release of hidden memories and depression. So to help us understand more in this episode of TheEdTalks we speak with meditation expert Davidji. Having apprenticed under Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon, he has become an internationally recognized stress-management expert, meditation teacher, Vedic Master and author, training more than 200,000 people to meditate and certifying more than 1,000 meditation teachers.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • The incredible feat Davidji and Dr Deepak Chopra achieved whilst meditating together
  • Why he lied to a Zen Master
  • The impactful trigger that changed his course in life
  • How Davidji's quest around the world lead him to the "Guru" many of us seek.
  • What does meditation mean in simple words
  • How many thoughts we have every minute
  • The enormous effect that our flight or fight response has on our physiology
  • How meditation can result in being a better parent and partner
  • What position you should not adopt when meditating
  • A simple 16 second to bliss technique that can short circuit negative thoughts
  • How the acronym RPM can bring the habit of meditation into your life
  • Two big things meditation can do for us
  • The easy solution to combat a common reason why people quit meditating
  • Side effects to be aware of when meditating and how to deal with them or make them stop
  • Why the more you meditate, the more clear headed you will become
  • How to get more energy into our lives
