Russell Brand is a famous English actor and comedian. Unfortunately his marriage with Katy Perry, an American singer, songwriter and actress, was short lived. As their divorce is finalising in just a couple more weeks, the British star claimed that he has never been happier. This is because yoga and meditation have allowed him to “tune into a higher consciousness.”
“I try not to compartmentalise things too much into years, but generally speaking I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life. Of course I went through a divorce which isn’t good for anybody, but that was that bit of time – that was really lovely – this is this bit of time – this is really lovely. I’m dedicating myself to all sorts of interesting things you know. Transcendental meditation, kundalini yoga, these things are right good for the old spirit. TM really works you know, it’s good for your health – both mental and physical,” explained Russell.
Yoga has helped Russell to relax and cope with his divorce. In fact, it has made him loved and believed in the practice more. So much so that he is actually recommending to try it out as well. “Tune yourself into a higher consciousness, that’s what I say. Change the dial. It’s easy. You just say a word over and over again in your head, they teach you how to do it. It’s easy. It’s mantra meditation. Anyone can learn to do it and anyone should. You can just use it to have a relax instead of having a fag or a drink, or you can use it to connect with a different form of consciousness. I do find it very relaxing and sometimes I doze off as a matter of fact. You’re not meant to but you can’t help it. Nonetheless it’s like a shower for your brain,” said the 37 year old.
