My personal meditation journey began in 2006 when my Mum suggested I go to a spiritual institute that was in a nearby suburb.

This spiritual school offered many different classes and courses in the spiritual field. I spoke to the receptionist there and took home some brochures on meditation and psychic development.

I later rang and booked to attend a meditation class.

Not long after that, I was sitting in a meditation class run by Debra Bull. I really enjoyed Deb’s guided meditations, and regularly attended her class one night a week.

I recall a powerful vision I had during one of the meditations. It was very vivid and clear.

Buddha MeditationI saw a giant golden Buddha sitting cross-legged, the size of a large room. It was amazing – and one of the most powerful visions I had ever experienced.

The Buddha didn’t speak; he just sat with a big smile on his face.

Later on, I pondered what the meaning of this vision meant, because I felt it was significant.

For me personally, a Buddha represents ascension and attaining spiritual growth. The color gold represents enlightenment of the heart and mind. This vision was so profound; I wanted to express it on paper. This drawing later became the cover artwork of my first guided meditation CD.

I was really enjoying attending these meditation classes with Deb, and the other attendees would often say I was glowing after the class. It was nice to connect with likeminded people, and share the journey with others.

I later went on to study Psychic Development with Deb, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Around the same time, I had just quit a difficult addiction with smoking, and later recorded my journey on an audio CD.

One evening during a meditation class, I had the idea to create a guided meditation CD. This was around the time I met my music composer Justin Smith on a chat server online. Justin had composed mainly chill out music, but liked the idea of composing some music for a meditation CD.

In 2007 I completed my first guided meditation CD with Justin. I went on to create a new guided meditation CD each year after that.

I really enjoy using my imagination and spiritual insight to take people on a journey of relaxation, self-discovery and healing.

A few years later I went on to study Mediumship with Helga Carmona at another spiritual center. I really enjoyed connecting to spirit guides and departed loved ones. During this course, my ability to connect to spirit became stronger and easier. I began to connect to Ascended Masters Saint Germaine and Merlin, who helped me with writing my meditations.

Later on I was given the opportunity to teach meditation classes at the spiritual center.  The classes were usually intimate, with only a handful of people in attendance.

I found that I could connect to my higher self and channel the class, depending on what the class members needed at the time.

It also served as great material for future meditation CDs. Many of the meditations I channeled in class have now been recorded to CD.

I am grateful to have met Nigel Coates online – with his Explore Meditation website. In the digital age we are in, more and more people are using MP3 players instead of CD players and Hi Fi’s. I’m happy to share my guided meditations with Nigel, to help reach a larger spiritual audience online.

Today I am still passionate about creating guided meditation CDs and MP3s, and hope to create many more in the future.

Brad’s Meditation Packages

Inner Child Healing MeditationsMany of us didn’t have a perfect childhood. In our innocence we can be hurt or let down by our parents and guardians, which can leave us feeling unsafe, hurt or afraid.

Although we grow into adulthood, that part of ourselves… our Inner Child, is always with us.

Sometimes as a child we may repress feelings or trauma to protect ourselves or because we felt unsafe to express ourselves at the time. If you have experienced this, your inner child may need some healing.

If we have unresolved issues from our childhood, it can create blocks and trauma in our adult life. The good news is that it is never too late to heal wounds of the past.

Guided Meditation is particularly useful if you wish to heal your Inner Child.

Affirmations for WealthMoney is an important aspect of our lives, and allows us to have freedom and enjoy the pleasures of the material world.

Abundance can take on many forms. We can have an abundance of friends, an abundance of health and happiness, or an abundance of passion and zest for life, to name a few examples. 

These positive affirmations will help to reprogram your subconscious mind and beliefs from a limited state into a positive expansive state of mind.

Grounding MeditationThese guided meditations are designed to assist you with grounding and healing yourself and the world around you.

Grounding is an important practice when delving into the realm of spirit, as it helps to anchor higher energies onto the planet and assists you to feel safe and connected to the earth mother.

The meditations in this package are also designed to assist you with connecting to your higher-self for guidance and healing – and spreading that light out into the world.

Higher Self MeditationThese Guided Meditation MP3 Downloads are designed to assist you to work with your guides – and create a relationship with your higher self (which is your link to the realm of spirit).

When in a state of meditation – our energetic vibration is raised. Our brain resonates and functions with theta brain wave frequencies, which allows us to access both information and healing that we usually can’t access during our day-to-day activities.

But with practice, we become more familiar with this mode of operation, and it becomes much easier to connect with spirit and receive the guidance and healing we need and desire.

Healing MeditationThese guided meditations are designed to assist you to work with the light – for healing of yourself, your relationships and strengthening your psychic self-defense.

Relationships are an important aspect of our lives and daily interactions… and we all have some relationships that are dysfunctional or not for our highest good.

These meditation downloads are designed to assist you to cut the ties, build your psychic protection and offer clearing and healing of your energy and space.

Relaxation MeditationThese guided meditation downloads are designed to assist you to relax, unwind and de-stress.

They are great for beginners to meditation, or anyone simply needing to take some time out from their busy schedule.

One of the meditations focuses on teaching you to slow your thoughts and control your mind, while the others assist you with working with the breath to consciously relax your muscles and body.

Spirit Guide MeditationThis meditation package is designed to assist you to have a closer relationship with your higher-self and your spirit guides.

These meditations will open your channels so it will be easier to communicate with spirit whenever you desire.

Enjoy this journey of greater connection … with your higher-self and spirit guides.

Healing MeditationAs a human on this planet we can experience a range of emotion from love to fear and everything in between.

Fear can prevent us from taking risks in life and also slow our spiritual growth. It can also be a precursor to spiritual growth by motivating us to face our fears and take action.

Often we have pain and trauma in our heart that needs to be released and healed.

The guided meditations in this package are designed to support and assist you to release your fears and heal your heart in a safe space. The last track takes you on a special journey to heaven to review your life and meet and connect with your departed loved ones.

Sleep MeditationsDid you know it takes the average person just 7 minutes to fall asleep?
7 MINUTES! Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

But if it takes you a lot longer than that, and you wish you could nod-off easily, and you crave nothing more than a good night’s sleep to restore your sanity … you have probably already tried the obvious suggestions;

  • Avoid caffeine late in the day
  • Ensure regular exercise is part of your week
  • Get into a regular bedtime routine
  • Drink a warm cup of milk before bed

But what if you’ve tried them all and they haven’t worked?

Depression Anxiety MeditationAnxiety and depression are very common conditions in our modern society.

Living with these conditions doesn’t make you any lessor human being. In fact it often means you have greater empathy and an open heart.

I have had bouts of panic attacks and depression for many years. The content of this album is very close to my heart, something I was inspired to create, not only for myself but to help others. 

Visualization and meditation have really helped me; the trick is remembering to use these tools during a crisis.

Crystal Healing MeditationsCrystals are timeless creations of the mineral kingdom. They store and amplify energy and assist with healing the human body, on an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual level.

Crystals assist with connecting us to the realm of spirit, and our higher self, and work to strengthen these connections.

Each crystal is unique and contains certain properties to help balance our chakras and aid in physical healing and wellbeing.

The guided meditations on this album, guide you to work with crystals in different ways to facilitate your own healing, intuition and spiritual growth.

Crystal MeditationPracticing regular meditation can be extremely beneficial.

It is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional and mental states.

Spiritually, meditation enables one to attain higher states of consciousness, allowing a greater sense of awareness and connection to spirit. And often, solutions to problems and insights in your life are realised during meditation.
 

Meditating with crystals can bring a whole new dimension to the practice of meditation, as crystals can greatly enhance the energy of your intent, whether it be for connection with your guides, raising your vibration, psychic protection or healing.

Facing Your FearsFear is a powerful force. It entwines itself through our entire existence in so many ways.

Much has been written on recognizing your fears and the value of facing them head on, but fear is not a simple concept – and overcoming them can be a daunting process.

I had a friend who was scared of heights. To prove he was a real man he jumped from a plane.

I had a friend who was scared to be alone, so she jumped from one man’s bed to another.

I myself was scared of the unknown, and walked along my spiritual path jumping in fright at every new encounter.

Relaxation MeditationIn the fast paced world we live in, taking time out to unwind and relax is becoming more important and necessary.

Job and family demands can build up and become overwhelming… Not to mention the constant bills, car payments and rent or your mortgage.

What is the solution?

Well there are many, but a very simple one is to practice relaxation meditation.

With meditation – you begin to feel an inner peace and stillness. It allows you to slow your down your mind and hush the constant mental chatter.

Ultimately, you learn to take control of our thoughts and emotions – and the little bumps in the road of life become much smoother.

Psychic ProtectionYou walk in to a busy shopping center to do your groceries. It is loud, busy, and not all of the energies are nice.

A couple is arguing in the corner, a baby is crying uncontrolled, the cashier hates their job and secretly wishes the isles would fall like dominoes and crush all of the customers.

We all have situations in our lives where we must interact with people without our choosing. Whether it is strangers on a bus, relatives at Christmas, or school and work colleagues…

We all know the feelings … Some people make us feel great and uplifted; others drain our energy and leave us flat.

But should our well-being be at the mercy of others? Definitely Not.

Rainbow MeditationI recall from my childhood driving in the car with my family. It was raining and the sun was just beginning to break through the clouds.

A beautiful rainbow began to form overhead.

As a kid I recall watching cartoons that depicted that if you ever reached the end of the rainbow, you would meet magical elves and faeries and be rewarded with a pot of gold. I would often fantasize about this and one day I tried to reach the end of a rainbow to no avail. As I walked closer the rainbow got further and further away.

But I kept believing there were magical fairies and elves awaiting anyone who could reach the end of the rainbow.

Free Grounding MeditationChances are you have heard someone talking about ‘grounding’ at one point or another.

But what does grounding actually mean?

Grounding is a spiritual term, referring to centering your soul in your body, and in turn, connecting it with Mother Earth.

When these connections are strong, it can help you feel safer and more in touch with the earth and Mother Nature.

If you experience a lot of fear and anxiety in your day-to-day, it is possible that you have become ungrounded.

So what is the best way to ground yourself? It’s quite simple really – and you have choices.

Healing the Heart MeditationOften, we carry pain and trauma in our heart that needs to be released and healed.

I really believed it was important to offer the following meditation for free, as so many of us are in need of this healing.

It has been designed to support and assist you to release your fears and heal your heart in a safe space.


Brad’s Latest Articles

Energy Old NewA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

There has been much prophesy regarding the times we are living in, and also a great deal channeled about these times.

The planet and its inhabitants on the surface have been gradually increasing in light over the past 70 years. But as we look around us, you wouldn’t be criticized for saying that it looks as if we are just at the beginning of the ascension journey.

In many ways we are just at the beginning, but nonetheless building a foundation and planting seeds for the future.

Learn Visualization MeditationA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

Over the years, some people have said to me that they have trouble visualizing in meditation. While it is not essential to visualize in meditation, it certainly helps and enriches your meditation experience.

Visualization is the art of forming pictures or images in your mind using your imagination.

You can then take visualization a step further by visualizing certain things you want in your life, for example; a perfect partner, a new home or more abundance, to list a few examples.

By focusing on what you want, rather than what you don’t want, helps to magnetize positive things and experiences into your life.

This article, a simple visualization guide for beginners, will give you some tips and techniques to help you learn to visualize in meditation.

Psychic ReadingsA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

Humanity has taken an interest in the future, particularly their personal future over many ages.

Throughout history Psychic Readers and Intuitives have been sought after to allow us to explore options, to give us an edge to make the wisest decisions.

But can we read the future with any certainty?

And does knowing the future potentially influence the outcome?

This article will explore these questions and attempt to bring some clarity to them.

ReincarnationWhen we reach the end of our life it is said that we get to review our life. For me this rings true.

Our spirit guides are there with us and we review our life, from start to finish, kind of like on a big cinema screen.

We see and feel how we have influenced others in positive and negative ways throughout our lives and we see the lessons we learnt or didn’t learn.

We see things from a higher perspective, how spirit views things.

Becoming CrystallineHumanity is gradually becoming crystalline, or more crystal-like in vibration.

This is a process that is gradual and happens over many years. Those at the forefront of spiritual evolution are leading the way to hold a higher vibration in human form.

One of the easiest ways to become more crystalline is to wear and work with crystals.

Ask to make a connection with your body elemental to assist in healing your physical body.

Your body elemental is the consciousness of your body and is always trying to maintain balance. It communicates with you through feeling and intuition. Often we say, “I have a gut feeling”.

This is your body elemental trying to communicate with you.

Anxiety Depression MeditationThis post deals with the Energy Dynamics of Anxiety and Depression – and the Power You Have to Change It.

There is a saying, “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.” Lao Tzu.

I feel there is a lot of truth in this statement.

Energy flows where attention goes.

We have the choice where we place our attention, in the past, present or future. The power to change our lives is in the present; it is indeed a “present”, as it is a gift we give to ourselves.

I have experienced both anxiety and depression throughout my adult life.

I have come to realize how our thinking and the quality of our thoughts play a big role in influencing these states of being.

If you are thinking and feeling negative thoughts and emotions, it can create anxiety which can also lead you to feel depressed.

Psychic ProtectionYou walk in to a busy shopping center to do your groceries. It is loud, busy, and not all of the energies are nice.
