Guided Meditation selection tips to help you Master Meditation

Meditation is beneficial in many ways and working with a guided meditation can help your practice in numerous ways. When selecting a guided meditation to use there are a number of things that it is wise for you to consider. As meditation has raised in prominence over the last few years many new age practitioners have released guided meditation products on CD and mp3 to aid people with their practice, though all of us havepersonal preferences and so finding a good fit is important. Having meditated with a number of guided meditations over the years for varying reasons I have distilled a few simple points to aid you in selecting the right guided meditation program.

Listening to the voice of the meditation practitioner guiding you is fundamentally important. A great way to do this is to access a free meditation if you can. What you are seeking is a voice that soothes you and puts you at ease, if the voice grates or is in some way less than pleasant to you then you should keep your search going for one you can enjoy. Often people overlook this and feel that the meditation itself is at fault, truthfully the meditation will be fine, just for someone else.

The music, if there is any, supporting the meditation is also important. If the voice is good and the music is going to distract you as you dislike it then keep looking for a better option. Of note on this subject there are a number of products out there which directly work on brainwaves. The rhythms used are commonly known as binaural beats, and operate on frequencies in the brain, all of which have varying purposes. Some are excellent for stress relief, others for focus, mind expansion, mind power, creativity, healing and also relaxation. When applied within a guided meditation or any meditation the results become magnified. There are some excellent products in this category and certainly I recommend both Tom Kenyon and Kelly Howell for the works they have created.

Also check the language, if you have had NLP training then you will know the importance of phrasing and language patterns. Checking for someone saying what not to do is important as this can be counterproductive due to the patterns it creates in the mind. Having a guided meditation which uses clean positively framed language is going to achieve a far greater amount for you than one telling you to avoid or not do something .

A thing to bear in mind is how and where you are going to listen to your guided meditation. A meditation space in a good quiet location within your home will serve you well, and within that consider how you will listen to the CD or mp3 you are using. An iPod or personal CD player are very cost effective ways to enjoy the meditation and save you installing a stereo and speakers, plus with noise reducing earphones you gain the ability to focus more deeply inward.

I strongly recommend doing a having a look at the meditation ebooks and resources section to find guided meditations and other things that will help you with your meditation practice.

Whatever your meditation aim is, if you are just learning how to meditate, focusing on new age type meditation techniques for increasing your mind power, going to deeper levels of spiritual healing or seeking stress relief then I trust this helps you.Please visit our UK and US product pages for some links to guided meditations that can help you. I wish you well and beautiful meditations, Namaste.

Hey Steve, this was really useful thanks.

Do you have any recommendations for the relaxation/meditation cds aimed at kids – I’ve been thinking of trying one for Chris, as i think he would really benefit from it, but would be interested to know if there are any that you think are particularly good.

Hi Julie,

Glad you are enjoying the resource! 🙂

There are quite a few CDs now available which are focused as meditation for children or to help them relax before sleeping at night. Having checked a few out for people and had feedback about different series I reckon that Sparkling Meditations for Shining Stars would be a good place to start, though there are others in the series depending on what you feel resonates most with Chris and what you seek to help him achieve. Follow the link through and see what you think and check out the other options, the ‘Relax Kids’ series has achieved a fair amount of success with people I know so I happily recommend it to anyone who asks. As with all guided meditations though there are different things which resonate with different people, I hope however that this will aid you, Chris and the rest of your family.

Namaste 🙂
