Meditation scuba diving Experience

Ever since my friend tried to convince me to meditate when I was about 12, I’ve been fairly skeptical of this practice. It always seemed to be so hard to be free of any thoughts. More recently, I’ve actually found how simple (not easy, but simple) meditation can be underwater and what huge benefit it can have for my day.

As I started diving I realized the practice of breathing underwater is so similar to meditation practice on the surface. And much easier to reach a free mind away from thought and rumination. Whether you are as skeptical that underwater meditation contemplation works, or you’re well ahead of me with a meditation habit of several hours. I think it’s always interesting to find out how new habits affect our brains. I had a look into meditation to see what’s going on inside our brains when we do this, and what I found is pretty interesting.

What is meditation?

There are different ways to meditate, and since it’s such a personal practice there are probably more than any of us know about. These are focused attention, or mindful meditation, contemplation which is where you focus on one specific thing—it could be your breathing, a sensation in your body, or a particular object outside of you. The point of this type of meditation is to focus strongly on one point and continually bring your attention back to that focal point when it wanders.

Meditation Dive

Our meditation dive will help you to be one with your breathing and avoiding thoughts. The other type of meditation dive is open-monitoring meditation. This is where you pay attention to all of the things happening around you—you simply notice everything without reacting. The world underwater will help you with this.

What happens in your brain

when you meditate is where things get interesting. Using modern technology like fMRI scans, scientists have developed a more thorough understanding of what’s taking place in our brains when we meditate, kind of similar to how scientists have previously looked at measuring creativity in our brains. The overall difference is that our brains stop processing the information as actively as they normally would. We start to show a decrease in beta waves, which indicate that our brains are processing information, even after a single 20-minute meditation dive session.
