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.

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?
Practicing regular meditation can be extremely beneficial.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
