Quadrato Motor Training (QMT)

QMT is a movement meditation that alternates between dynamic movement and still postures. It puts our attention on the present moment(time) and our present location(space). One has to be aware of their inner and outer worlds at the same time.

Benefits of QMT include improved cognitive flexibility, a feeling of relaxation, an increase in attention and an easy shift to the flow state.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

During meditation, a large group of brain cells are synchronized, dancing together in great harmony and integrity. This helps the brain become better at almost everything, from problem-solving to reduced addictions, and an increase in moral values.

A meditating person becomes more empathetic, creative and socially effective. He becomes self-aware and confident while being less greedy or immoral in any way.

The OVO Chamber

An egg shaped chamber that increases neural-synchronicity was created by Patrizio Paoletti, a meditation teacher.

Called the OVO chamber, this spherical model of consciousness maps out subjective experiences, making our life experience sharper and more intense.

Spirituality Is A State Of Mind
  • A spiritual experience, according to the father of Western psychology, William James, is a state of higher consciousness.
  • Spirituality, in essence, is connectedness, the antithesis of the values of society like capitalism and laws of the land.
  • A spiritual state can be achieved by contemplative and ritualistic practices like prayer and meditation.
  • Many spiritual traditions like Buddhism report a higher state of consciousness and connection.
  • These states of mind need not be rare experiences of a chosen few, but can be reached in daily life by anyone.

The ordinary, once we collect ourselves and pay attention to it in a fully integrated manner, becomes miraculous.

Normally our minds are so fragmented that there are always multiple conflicts in how we behave, think, feel or communicate. People who regularly meditate do not have this problem and report a harmonious brain activity with great synchrony and connectivity of neurons.

Simply by paying close attention to our breath and somehow getting past the distraction stage where our mind wants to stop the boring activity and do something else(like checking the smartphone), we can change our mindset from a fear-based individual to someone with high aspirations and values.

By meditation, we can internally connect the scattered aspects of our lives: family, career, health, friendships, relationships, finance and society.

Meditation makes our life worth living, as we stop reacting and rushing through our day, and become grounded, rooted and calm.

Our outlook, reactions and behaviour change as we feel a sense of connectedness with everyone. This experience of the interconnectedness of being is what we know as spirituality.

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) And How It Works

The fMRI employs a magnetic field to collect information about the body. It is one of the most prominent methods in neuroscience for studying the structure of the brain, including differences in the structural characteristics of different people's brains.

It works with a system that produces images of the brain's functions that indicates whether the activity of neurons is increased or decreased in specific parts of the brain and under which conditions.

When someone is asked to think or write about a spiritual experience, this act leads them to experience awe. Similarly, when experiences of awe are induced, people report more belief in the supernatural.

People who are more spiritually inclined tend to experience more awe and other self-transcendent emotions - accounting for why spirituality boosts wellbeing.
