Russell Brand Credits Meditation with Helping Him Cope with Divorce
20th June 2012
His divorce finalises in a couple of weeks but Russell Brand admits he’s never been happier.
And he says Transcendental Meditation has helped him through his break up from Katy Perry because it’s allowed him to “tune into a higher consciousness”.
The comic split from the singer at the beginning of the year after 14 months of marriage. They divorced in February and it finalises in July. He’s since been linked to a number of women including wannabe TV host, Emily Hartridge, while Katy has been stepping out with Florence + The Machine guitarist, Rob Ackroyd.
And Russell said he’s the happiest he’s ever been in his life.
He said it’s all down to meditation.
“I try not to compartmentalise things too much into years, but generally speaking I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life,” he said.
“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.
“You know how in physics they say that everything came from a big bang? Well, all these people believe that everything is from a unified field of energy and if you tune your brain into it, much the way you tune a radio in, it’s a more positive frequency than a negative frequency of human consciousness.”
Russell continued: “Tune yourself into a higher consciousness, that’s what I say. Change the dial.
“It’s easy. … They teach you how to do it. It’s easy. … 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 … it’s like a shower for your brain. God knows I needed one, the muck that goes on in there.”
