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.
I 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
As 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.

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

Anxiety 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.

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

You 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.
In 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.
Practicing 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.
Fear 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.
Chances 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.
I 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.
Often, 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.

Ascension is a gradual process of becoming enlightened while walking around as a human being.
It is a process of changing from a disconnected human being, to a connected human being, connected to one’s higher self and the realm of spirit. During ascension spirit begins to merge with matter over a period of time, parts of our soul/higher self begin to merge with our body/mind/spirit.
While there are some similarities of ascension with everyone, it is also a very unique and personal experience. After all, we are all so unique and special in our own way.
If we strip everything back to the basics, everything is energy. Everyone has a unique energy vibration that is constantly changing with our mood and the food we eat. What is quite interesting is that we actually eat food on a subconscious level that matches our vibration at the time.

Grounding is an important practice to help you feel balanced, safe and connected. It is sometimes called Earthing, but means the same thing.
There are many situations in life that can throw you off-center and create imbalance. Some of these can include stress, alcohol, drugs (including medication), and if you are particularly sensitive, other people and large crowds.
Thankfully, there are many ways to center and ground yourself.
These can include eating certain foods, particularly organic foods that have been grown in the earth, spending time in nature, preferably barefoot, and through meditation.
A grounding meditation that utilizes visualization is best for this purpose.
We have created a society that predominately values the outer landscape and has forgotten the inner landscape.
This is slowly changing and one-day society will value the inner landscape again.
We certainly still need the outer landscape, but it needs to be balanced and integrated with the inner landscape.
By turning inward, we begin to understand who we are as a person.
In this guided meditation by Brad Austen, you will learn a simple technique for connecting with your Higher-Self and developing an easy flow of information and communication so you can live your life in a connected way.

The Spirit of Gaia is the sacred consciousness of the planet, also referred to in some indigenous cultures as Mother Earth.
It is a belief that there is spirit in everything; in each blade of grass, in each petal of a flower…
There is energy and consciousness in each drop of water and each grain of sand.
Gaia is evolving as humanity is evolving. It is an interlinked partnership. As humanity shifts to a higher vibration and changes, so does the planet.
There is a lot of physical earth movement and changes occurring at the moment, as Gaia is shifting and aligning her energy to hold and support this higher vibration.
There are many paths to enlightenment and no particular right or wrong way to get there.
Essentially it is about going within, working on your thoughts and belief structures and taping into your sub conscious mind.
There becomes a time where the conscious and sub conscious minds merge; whereas before the sub-conscious was hidden, yet still influencing your thoughts and day-to-day living.
To me this defines what enlightenment means, to have greater awareness.

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

Transcending victim consciousness is an interesting topic to contemplate.
On a human level our awareness is somewhat limited, in comparison to our soul’s level of awareness. We all have a soul, but it can be a faint whisper in our lives, unless you nurture this connection.
For many the ego and personality are the driving force in one’s life, but this is also gradually changing, as we go through the shift in consciousness. As human beings we have free will, so whether these inner and outer changes happen quickly or slowly is up to us.
In the spirit world before we are born and have decided to come to earth, a contract or soul agreement is drawn up with our guides.
This contract also involves other people, our family, friends and future partners, who we choose to grow and learn from. When we are born into this world, for the most part we agree to forget our real home, our past lives and our soul agreements.
We are multidimensional beings and it is commonly known we comprise of three parts; a mind, body and spirit.
It is also known that energetically we have a physical body, an emotional body, a mental body and a spiritual body.
The human body is made of light that has slowed to a point that it has become dense matter. Part of the journey humanity is on at this time, is to ascend and grow spiritually. Everyone needs healing on some level. For those on the path, the physical body is beginning to change and become less dense.
The energy in our auras is also changing and beginning to vibrate quicker. Our cells are changing to hold more light, so we can hold more of our spirit in human form. This is a gradual process that occurs over many years.
