Meditation Helps Reduce Crime and Prevent Accidents

Can Meditation Prevent Death in People that Don’t Meditate?

Over time there are several studies that have been conducted that appear to indicate that in fact meditation can positively impact the surrounding area!

These studies indicate that large groups of meditation practitioners that engage in meditating  can impact those surrounding their efforts, and there are a ton of statistics to back it up.

These statistics indicate that everything from crime to everyday accidents are reduced in areas where large populations of individuals that meditate exist.

There is a lot of talk about meditation as being an essential practice to cultivate overall wellness.  But meeditation is not just a way to cope with stress and seek inner knowledge.  It literally has the potential to literally transform the world.t

By transform the world, I don’t just mean transform individuals who meditate.  When large numbers of people get together and meditate at the same time, it has an energetic ripple effect on the consciousness of the surrounding people.  People who aren’t even meditating are impacted by the effects of the meditators. Let’s look at some of the scientific studies that prove this to be the case.

What studies have revealed

In 1978, what is known as the “Maharishi Effect” took place when a group of 7000 individuals over the course of 3 weeks were meditating in hopes of positively effecting the surrounding city. They were able to literally transform the collective energy of the city which reduced global crime rates, violence, and casualties during the times of their meditation by an average of 16%.

People who were not even meditating and had no idea that this experiment was even happening were being an impacted by such a degree that it caused a statistical change in their behaviour.  Suicide rates and automobile accidents also were reduced with all variables accounted for. In fact, there was a 72% reduction in terrorist activity during the times at which this group was meditation.
