The mechanism behind meditation’s transformative potential is called self-directed neuroplasticity.
Neuroplasticity is science’s term for the brain changing structure and function as it adapts and learns.
And the “self-directed” piece refers to your ability to intentionally shape your brain by using it in a specific way during meditation.
You are using the mind to change the brain, like a child crafting a Playdough structure. It’s empowering to know that you are in control of your own mental fitness.
You know those people who just seem naturally attentive, happy and full of energy? We all have access to this way of being. Your mind is not a fixed entity.
