I have created this audio guided meditation for you to try meditation.
Extensive research has shown that regular meditation helps you re-wire your brain into a calmer and healing state. Meditation has also been shown to accelerate recovery and assist with reducing stress, which would be helpful to you right now.
The easiest way to learn how to meditate is to use a guided meditation to assist your mind to stay focussed. The main reason people think they are ‘not doing it right’ is because their mind wanders, or is easily distracted. Listening to a soothing voice in calm tones, can assist to guide you and support you while you learn how to meditate.
You may have never meditated before so are unsure of yourself. Judgement that you are ‘not meditating properly’ is not helpful, which is why a guided track can help as you learn to relax. Just listen to the voice or sounds on the track.
Practice not perfection is best.
I provide this guided audio meditation – to release any negative emotions that prevent you from moving forward in your life.
I recorded this audio in my peaceful home, you may hear the sounds of birds in the background. Just listen to my voice. Focus on my voice to assist to soothe and supporting you in your meditation.
Whatever way you find that works for you, the regular practice of meditation has been proven to support healing from a range of health conditions. This recording has been kept deliberately short so it can be incorporated into your daily routine to assist you to stay calm and focussed and to allow your body/mind/spirit to release blocks.
