Why Does a Good Guided Meditation Make it Easier to Meditate?
Guided meditation works because your mind likes two things: firstly it likes to be involved, and secondly it likes to pay attention to something, although often it pays attention to itself! When you are learning to meditate then simply sitting down, closing your eyes and hoping for the best may work, but more often than not it may just leave you sitting there with your thoughts and mind, which can be a bit frustrating.
By listening to a guided meditation you are working with your mind. As you hear the words they keep your mind occupied and involved in the meditate so you are no longer fighting against it or trying to exclude it from the meditation.
Warning: Some Guided Meditations May Actually Hold you Back
There are a lot of guided meditations out there but did you know that a lot of them are actually holding people back or slowing down their soul and spiritual development? It may be surprising to hear this so let me explain what I mean because your time is the most precious thing you have, so you would want to use it wisely, right?
A More Spiritual Guided Meditation
Each guided meditate above carefully draws upon years of spiritual meditation experience and is designed to help you develop spiritually and also to help your soul journey progress too. We avoid music and there is no visualisation in any of our guided meditates. The language is carefully chosen to increase your ability to notice on a much deeper level and collectively they guide you to discover truth through your own direct experience.
The Power of Silence Within Guided Meditations
In each guided meditation above you will find something important… you will find SILENCE. We carefully balance spoken word guidance with silence so that you can actually meditate because meditation only really begins when you are not distracted by external things including music, chanting, sounds and talking.
We know that many people struggle at first with this, often beginners get to the first break in the talking and give up. This may be in part because there is an expectation that a guided meditation should be entertaining. Our guided meditations are different though, they are not there to entertain you, they were created to help you spiritually transform your life. Each is a journey and like the space between each note in music the silences are as important as the spoken guidance. We invite you to embrace the silence.
Do You Need Guided Meditation?
Each meditation above is a carefully designed journey, and together they also form a larger journey and we recommend you work through them in order the first time and then come back to the ones that you resonate with the most, although that may change over time. However spiritual meditation, which begins upon initiation, does not need guided meditation. Once you are initiated then the guided meditations are still useful, but should be used more sparingly so that the majority of your meditation is actually on the light and sound energy.
