Do I neeed a Guided Meditation?
What is a guided meditation? Do I need a guided meditation at all? These and other questions are being asked frequently and my answer to this question is that it varies from person to person.
On the other it is an important argument, that subliminal programming is considered a vital aspect in a guided meditation. With the guided meditation, your guide can give you positive affirmations on a desired topic.
Maybe you are someone who can turn off the thoughts in your head very fast in a quiet surrounding and feel rather bothered by someone talking to you.
You are able to relax with meditation music very fast and you have made the experience for yourself already. Your quality of imagination is very high meaning you are able to visualize easily. Then you probably wouldn’t want or need someone to visualize for you and guide you through your meditation.
This all depends on your current state of being, your experiences in meditation and if you would want to reprogram an aspect of your life right now. Everyone is able to meditate and it doesn’t matter how, there is no rule except the one that it should suit you.
Guided meditations can be experienced from a guided meditation record or in a meditation class. Yoga teachers will also guide you through a meditation in the beginning and or the end of a class, depending on the yoga class you take
Easy tips when you start a meditation:
- In guided meditations your guide will ask you to sit or lie down in a comfortable position.
- Relax in such a way that you will not be disturbed. Turn off your phone and make sure you’re in a place where you are feeling secure.
- Make sure the room is in a comfortable temperature and light is dimmed so that you can relax properly.
- Your body will slightly cool down when in a relaxed state so you might want to have a blanket ready and wear some socks during the meditation.
It is all about practice in our life so if you just started with meditation don’t beat yourself up if your success isn’t what you expected it to be.
Maybe you had too many thoughts wandering around in your mind. That’s normal and absolutely ok. Our brain is built to think. It is a matter of your capacity of visualization. This is a simple matter of regular practice and can be learned easily.
You can send your thoughts on a trip like clouds passing by. There are many ways handling and even playing your thoughts and you might find out in time and practice what suits you best.
