Path to Peace Is Meditation a Placebo?

Meditation can often look like doing nothing, but that can’t be further from the truth. Meditation is very active. It is the act of being between highly alert and highly relaxed. Being between these two states trains our mind and body to later do all the things we do when we interact with the world around us, and yet remain in a very peaceful state.

Meditation is the literal training of our mind to be focused, patient, highly aware and highly peaceful. It trains our mind to tap into the inner peace and joy within. While it is not a placebo, placebos are actually a very powerful tool we can all use in our lives. Placebos are why a sugar pill can cure someone of their cancer. Simply believing something is helpful does make it so.

In this episode, I’ll share the truth about meditation, and how we can use the placebo effect to our advantage and to improve our daily lives.
