With Transcendental Meditation, very little “practice” is needed, as the process is completely natural. One learns to transcend from the first few days of TM practice and as soon as one has the experience of transcending, this will have an effect on one’s life. (Maharishi said that: “It’s not possible to dive into the water and not get wet.”) This effect will accumulate as you practise the technique regularly over time as well.
The results come almost immediately, but the extent to which the effect is immediately noticeable differs from person to person.
The extent to which the effect is immediately noticeable differs from person to person. It sometimes happens that the difference is more immediately apparent if the individual learning has a significant problem. For example, if someone suffers from acute anxiety, they might immediately notice the peaceful, relaxing experience because they have been experiencing the opposite – anxiety or nervousness. In general, one notices a slight improvement starting in the first few days, and a further gradual improvement over time.
Most of the scientific research measure results after an average of 3 months of TM practice, as this seems to be a reliable period for virtually every new TM practitioner to have significant, measurable results.
