In several recent interviews, people from all walks of life spoke about the remarkable effects of Transcendental Meditation in their lives. These interviews were for a new video produced in the UK to introduce the public to the simple meditation technique.
One area highlighted through the interviews and anecdotes was the benefits practising Transcendental Meditation (TM) brings to family life. The word 'amazing' comes up often.
Tarsem Bains, a pharmaceuticals account manager, noticed a change in interactions with his family after learning Transcendental Meditation.
'The effect of TM on my family has just been amazing,' he said.
'[My wife and I] noticed overnight when both of us started meditating that the environment in the house has changed. There's a lot more serenity in the house. It's just a wonderful gift that people can give to their children.'
His wife, Manjit Bains, agreed. She also added that after learning Transcendental Meditation she has noticed her whole energy change, and now finds that people are drawn to her simply for who she is and the positivity she naturally radiates.
For many people, the changing family dynamics have a lot to do with the process of stress release that Transcendental Meditation triggers. With less stress, it becomes easier to interact harmoniously with others.
'I've been meditating for almost two years now and the changes have been amazing,' said Helle Pettersen, a hospital nurse. 'I feel less stressed and I'm more effective with my time management. I can do my to-do list, be really effective, communicate clearer, my mind is calmer, and I just feel happier in general.'
She added that these positive changes have carried over into her family life.
'It's really helped the relationship with my daughter as well. I have many more resources. I just feel calmer with her. I can put my full attention on her. . . . I can just be with her, be happy. It's wonderful.'
