“Meditation can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger; and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity of healing do the work.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
I thought of listing six guided meditation videos that will take you in a deep meditative, relaxing state. Leave all your worries behind, find a comfortable place and go on a journey to the inner landscapes of your mind. This is just a short list to get you started, find those that resonate with you.
1) 8 Hour Deep Sleep Music: Delta Waves, Sleep Meditation
This would be a great video to start with. If you are struggling to get sleep, listen to the tunes in this video. I found it extremely relaxing and calming.
2) Blissful Deep Relaxation
So often, we struggle to start meditating; either procrastinating or figuring out the right or the wrong way of meditation. I am sure you are not the only one to feel this way.
There is no right or wrong way of meditation; whatever works for you is the right way.
The key is the willingness and effort to find quiet time, and disconnecting from modern day distractions. But there are some common ways to get started, as mentioned in this article – A Layman’s Guide to Mindful Meditation
3) Tibetan Healing Sounds – Singing Bowl Meditation
The vibratory sound of musical instruments evoke deep sense of relaxation. Like the Tibetan Singing Bowls – used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. The sound of singing bowls facilitates opening of inner doorways, and restores the normal frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.
4) Jon Kabat Zinn Body Scan Meditation
The next video is guided meditation from Jon Kabat-Zinn, who has played a huge role in the scientific exploration of the benefits of mindfulness in daily life. This one focuses on entering deeper states of physical and mental relaxation.
Don’t try hard to relax, become aware in each passing moment and accepting what is happening in your inner self. Take a long, slow deep breath in, hold it for a few seconds, and breathe out slowly. As you navigate deeper through your mind, feel the sensations in different parts of your body, give it healing if need be.
5) Meditation Music: Amazing Brain Sound, Dopamine Booster
Positive tune to alter your mood and boost the release of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s pleasure centers, makes you feel good and boost self confidence.
6) Extremely Powerful Third Eye Opening Binaural Beat Meditation
This meditation video uses very specific binaural beat frequencies that opens your Third Eye.
Binaural beats is a series of tones and sounds that physically affect our brain wave states. The binaural beats used in this video start out at a low frequency usually associated with meditation, astral projection and accelerated learning. The frequencies increase gradually to those associated with Third Eye opening, love, beauty, sensuality and harmony. (It is recommended to use headphones)
“Meditation is really very simple. We complicate it. We weave a web of ideas round it, what it is and what it is not. But it is none of these things. Because it is so very simple it escapes us, because our minds are so complicated, so time-worn and time-based. And this mind dictates the activity of the heart, and then the trouble begins. But meditation comes naturally, with extraordinary ease, when you walk on the sand or look out of your window or see those marvelous hills burnt by last summer’s sun.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
Hope this short selection of guided meditation videos has inspired you to get started or helped you on your journey. Remember there are many ways up the mountain, the path you choose for yourself is the one that resonates with your heart. Find what works for you, and ignore the rest.
