Guided Meditation

Guided meditation is one type of meditation that appeals to many, myself included.. This practice involves listening to narration while you meditate. These sessions have an overarching goal of helping you to relax in a meditative state, but they usually go further in order to help you reach a specific goal.

Guided meditation combines traditional forms of focused breathing with visualization to deliver unique benefits in reaching particular goals such as stress relief or improved concentration.

During a session, you’ll seat yourself comfortably, or even lie down (my preference), as you would with other types of meditation. This form differs, though, in that you’ll listen to a guide instructing you throughout a relaxation period and focus on a particular topic of choice.

The first portion of the exercise will focus on guiding you toward a relaxed state in which you are ready to receive the suggested imagery to come.
These sessions are available to suite a wide array of goals, including improved self-image, better concentration, enhanced spirituality and emotional healing. These sessions can last between five minutes and an hour. Your guide’s voice ends the time by bringing back from your meditative state through vocal commands, or the ringing of a bell.

Benefits of Guided Meditation

Guided meditation can provide a broad spectrum of benefits.

Primarily, it will likely relax and rejuvenate you, no matter which particular goal you seek. Repeated practice also brings you an overall enhanced sense of well-being and sharpened cognitive abilities well after the session itself.

You can use guided meditations to clear your mind, improve your focus and pick up new skills more easily. There are also a number of scientifically-proven benefits to your health and mind that come from this type of meditation. Those who suffer from depression and anxiety may find relief through guided meditation. It slows your heart rate and strengthens the connections between the hemispheres of your brain.

Guided meditation has been shown to improve overall health and wellness.
