YOU and new study reveals the surprising effects of Spirituality
on the Brain
There is a growing body of research that has conclusively
demonstrated the powerful, positive effects that meditation and
mindfulness practices have on the brain and body, and a new
a collaborative study between professors at Columbia University and
the New York State Psychiatric Institute is now taking these
findings one step further. In a summary of their findings the report
show that they have found a direct correlation between the level
of importance, a person places on spirituality in their lives and the
thickness of a certain region of their brains.
The study found that people who expressed that spirituality or
religion was important to them had significantly thicker cerebral
cortices-a part of the brain rich in highly active neutral networks
responsible for sensory perception, language, and emotion
processing than those who did not.

I have talked about this before:
Dr. Joseph Murphy’s books – all of them help in spirituality and
Ho’oponopona is a wonderful technique that I use constantly
also. in my daily meditation, I use this technique a lot and have
found it works for me spiritually as does any of my meditations
that I have been doing since in my 40s.
All the meditations do for you is to heal you, transmute their
problems and become a more loving and peaceful person. They
all help you connect with the Higher Power that is a creator of all
things and that shows we are all connected and we never die.
Just our physical being dies but our consciousness, our soul, and
our spirit never die; our energy never dies because energy
cannot die. We live in a universe made of energy and vibrations
as we each are made of energy and vibrations.
