Who Are You And Why Should I Listen To You?
My name is Vic Daly and 27 years ago, I was a struggling with chronic stress and anxiety disorders after heart bypass surgery.
It is sometimes difficult to get it across to people and friends outside of meditation, that meditation can be your body’s own pharmacy. Let me try to explain that in a little more detail.
Meditation can and will help repair your heart.
A bold statement I know but true. When I say heal I do not mean the heart can actually heal itself to its original state after a heart attack, because certain parts of your heart muscle sadly die.
Therefore, after bypass surgery the remaining heart muscle has to compensate for this and this is where meditation comes into its own… your own perfect little pharmacy.
Twenty-seven years ago
Twenty-seven years ago, I personally went through a series of heart attacks (three) one after the other… ouch, yes it was unbelievably painful.
A few months after surgery and still hurting, I complained to my local GP that my chest was hurting badly. He said it is all in my mind… how in hell's name he could justify saying that to me… ruddy donkey doctor!
Proper doctor – Human
I took it upon myself to see a private doctor out of desperation. He used acupuncture of all things on my sternum. Yep it worked on day one, no more after surgery pains… I am a believer. The only pains he could not deal with were the pains of despair. Stress and anxiety were running amok, I was a type A person trapped in a type Z body something was about to give.
This private doctor ought to have the Nobel Prize for his next suggestion. My newfound doctor suggested Meditation. I must admit I had a little smirk or was it a wry smile at his suggestion. Meditating… you have to be joking. No, he was serious… serious about me giving meditation a go.
Post meditation Classes
I can live with myself now, and my friends and family can too… what a personality change that came over me… a different me a more relaxed me. I had ridden myself of the stress and anxiety that threatened to hospitalize me - or worse.
My perfect pharmacy (meditation)
I have now made meditation a big part of my life… without it I would shudder to think what would have eventually happened to me. I can guess but I will not go there… way too dark!
I have had past friends and acquaints who were not quite so lucky. After surgery and numerous tablets, patches and whatever they still did not manage to survive many years after surgery. By going back to their old ways, sadly nothing was going to change for them.
I am so, so grateful for meeting the right doctor at the right time. The right advice and encouragement has more than compensated for my losses.
If you are reading this post and really needing some extra sound advice on anything to do with meditation, then I am here to help you. If you are suffering with any stress related problems then I am sure that through my webpages I can offer you some real relief.
So, just as this private doctor was there when I really need him – I am here for you too… if you need me.
