Why do I cry during a meditation?

Tears are words from the heart that cannot be spoken

Tears are a wonderful tool to express your emotions; emotions you cannot translate into words. You are even releasing toxins stored in your body. Therefore, it is a beautiful and powerful tool to clean your body. 

During meditation, you turn inwards, focusing on the heart and the inner voice. When beginning a meditation practice, particularly in times of stress or after a challenging period, the profound impact of silence may feel overwhelming. However, it is within this silence that you can discover answers and unveil the truth. This process can be compared with holding a ball under the water. The ball represents your emotions, beneath the water's surface. While you may manage to keep it submerged for a time, eventually, the ball will rise. Upon its release, a sense of liberation is experienced. Similarly, through meditation, you can liberate yourself from pent-up, often concealed emotions.

One beneficial approach in the initial stages is to commence with brief meditation sessions. By doing so, you gradually alleviate the accumulated tension, preventing it from being released all at once. It is advisable to establish a morning or evening routine that incorporates meditation for a duration of 5 to 7 minutes before rising from bed or going to sleep. Initially, there may be no discernible change; however, over time (which varies for each individual), you will observe a greater sense of harmony among your body, mind, and spirit. This enhanced alignment may lead to reduced stress levels, anxiety, anger, and sadness, potentially resulting in decreased bodily tension and a more tranquil state of mind.

You can vary the guided meditations with music, for example, with Binaural Beats and Sound Healing.

We wish you wonderful Meditation Moments!
