Guided Meditation Explained
Just as a child loves hearing a story before bed and is consumed by the imaginary world, all you need to do is follow the words of the guide in these meditations to receive the many benefits meditation provides;
- Reduced stress
- increased mental clarity
- connection to your true life’s path
- increased passion
- abundant joy and energy…
The benefits are as diverse as the stories to choose from.
Guided Meditation asks that you make yourself as comfortable as possible. There is no sitting cross-legged for hours or holding constant mudras with the fingers. There is no ‘learning process’. Everyone can follow, or ‘do’ a Guided Meditation on the first go. And there is no waiting for the results. Everyone can receive the instant benefits.
So, what actually happens in a Guided Meditation?
Guided meditations usually start by drawing your awareness to your breath. You consciously watch your breath as it slows.
Then you follow the words of the guide and scan your body for areas of muscular tension. Your eyes, jaw or shoulders are often held tight without your realization. Taking a moment to focus on each body part can release this tension and often relieves annoying aches and pains you may have been experiencing.
This instruction is all given to you step by step and you are led through the entire process from start to finish. Anybody can do it. You can feel balanced, aware and complete in just a few short minutes.
In this relaxed and aware state, you are then taken on a journey into your imagination. And as your conscious mind follows the words and creates the pictures, the ‘chatter’ of your mind naturally falls away.
Concerns of the real world are no longer your priority. The ties and anchors to your problems are released; so that you can view your current situation with a freshened perspective which often brings greater clarity.
And just as a child can choose from a library of books, you too can choose from a variety of Guided Meditations.
It is best for beginners to start with meditations that ‘balance’ your energy, and reduce physical, mental, and emotional stress.
When you are comfortable with the basics, you can choose titles that will introduce you to more complex spiritual themes, such as meeting your higher-self, your inner-child, your spirit guide or even regress to see who you were in a past-life.
It is all safe, easy, and you are always in complete control.
The Explore Meditation website has a variety of guided meditations you can experience. You can listen to them now, or subscribe to the newsletter to receive links to download them to your computer.

Always keep in mind the goal of meditation, ‘To get beyond reflexive thinking, into a deeper state of mind.’
As you work towards this, you will open yourself to the many benefits of meditation; and your body, mind and spirit will thank you.

A spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.
Meditation is an old-age practice, existing for eons in many cultures. There are many different forms and sub-types of meditation.
One form, which has now become very popular in the west, is guided meditation. Guided meditation is great for beginners, or seekers wanting some guidance and direction during their meditation practice.
While more traditional forms of meditation tend to be about silencing or focusing the mind, guided meditation often keeps the listener’s mind active and alert.
Guided meditation recordings are also available to stream or download. They are very popular, so you don’t necessarily have to join a class or meditation circle.
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.
Money is an important aspect of our lives, and allows us to have freedom and enjoy the pleasures of the material world.

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.
