Power of Meditation
The mind is not meant to make decisions for you. It excels as a repository of memories, and because of its inherent dichotomous nature, it is a great tool to enumerate the pros and cons of any situation. This is the extent of its usefulness in the decision making process, though. Final decision making responsibility must always belong to your body, and specifically to your Authority. Wisdom resides in your DNA, not in your Ego.
What meditation does to your brain? The benefits of meditation are well known. You get calmer, you can focus better, your stress levels are reduced and you can sleep better. But the benefits of meditation do not end there. This seemingly simple exercise of closing the eyes and tuning inwards can actually make lasting physical changes in your body. Specifically, it can literally change your brain!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Sohum (सो ऽहम् so 'ham) is the Sanskrit for "I am He/That". (See also: Tat Tvam Asi.) When it applies to a person's name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I? That is when the universe replies back Sohum. You are the same as I am. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, "self pride."
