Can meditation change our brain?.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

“Two years ago in an experience where the mind was totally quiet I received a shattering inward happening where the ‘One moment’ and timelessness were revealed. 

I am unable to speak entirely about what happened, simply because human words fail to describe the actuality of it. 

I do not recognise who I was before this. Since then I have had no feeling in my head and everything is abnormally empty but perfect!! 

I now see that the brain may also have stopped functioning at this point. 

Whatever happened has changed my thinking and my life but also I realize my brain and mind are a thousand times lighter as well as a thousand times sharper. 

I feel no sensation above my neck. 

It is like my head has been chopped off and the brain is working from the heart area.

I wondered if your neurology and meditative mind knowledge could point me to what happened. And whether neurologists would benefit from my new knowledge.

Should I see a local neurologist?”

Response:

It sounds like you had a major shift in consciousness away from a localized, personal identity into a more abstract unlimited you. 

That is why you hardly recognize your past identity and why you feel so much lighter and clearer.

And while your state of consciousness certainly has changed your brain functioning and physiology to some extent, it is not accurate to say your brain stopped functioning, or that you now have no sensation above your neck.

I think what you are trying to say is that the mental processes in your brain are so dramatically more quiet and still than your previous mental processes, that it is as if nothing was happening in the brain in comparison with the past.

I suspect that the changes in your neurophysiology are likely to be so subtle that present-day neuroscience would not be able to draw any conclusions from a study of your brain. 

What matters is that this shift is a truer version of yourself— fearless, awake, and at peace. 

And while the new you may not fit into the prevailing social expectations and values anymore, as your new self begins to re-enter and re-engage with your mind and sense, you will again find a common ground of appreciation and understanding with others while remaining true to your inner self. 

Love,

Deepak
