Benefits of Guided Meditation

Have you ever tried meditating through apps, Youtube, and dare we say TikTok? There are so many readily available videos and online resources. You sift through the content, find one with a description that seemed to suit you. You play it, all set. And then what’s next?


What is Guided Meditation?

Guided meditation is a way to explore and intensify your relationship with your inner self. It's about exploring within yourself, being in tune with your own thoughts, feelings and emotions. Guided meditation can be practiced by anyone, regardless of religion or beliefs. Guided meditation is relaxing and calming for the mind, body and soul. It allows you to focus on the present moment. The guided meditation experience is unique for each person as it is tailored to meet individual needs and preferences.

This process is a mind-body practice where an experienced teacher leads you through the meditative period and often describes relaxing images and scenarios that help put you into a relaxed and positive frame of mind. 

Benefits of a Fully Guided Practice 

For first-time meditators, getting started with guided meditation can be an ideal way to learn the basics of meditation. With the guidance of a practiced wellness expert, you’ll learn some basic meditative concepts and have time to gently ease into a mediation session. Following the session, your instructor will provide tips on how to continue building your practice, then reflect on how you can integrate meditative practices into your daily life.

There are times when you do not have time to meditate. That is understandable and completely okay. When you have a lot on your plate, it can be hard to find time for yourself. Guided Meditation has numerous benefits, which is why it is best to learn from a wellness practitioner interested in your well-being. Guided meditation practitioners can help you learn how to focus your thoughts, let go of negative emotions and access the power within yourself—all skills that will help you feel energized throughout your day.*

Rather than using a meditation app, guided meditation classes offer more personal attention and customized care from wellness practitioners. Guided meditation classes with a wellness practitioner give you a more personal space to explore your own mental and physical health.

A guided meditation class is much more than just a class on how to meditate. During a class, you may participate in breath work and sound healing.. The environment is usually set up for relaxation—you'll be seated comfortably so that you don't have to worry about falling asleep during the session.

Why you should give it a try. 

Many people today are looking for ways to calm themselves, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve their focus. With all the demands of daily life, it's easy to get overwhelmed. We can find it difficult to find a quiet place to meditate amidst the myriad distractions of daily life.  

Trying to meditate without guidance can be frustrating and uncomfortable, especially if you're new to the practice. Guided meditation is a great option for those who want to experience what meditation is about but are unsure about where to start or how to do it.

Guided meditation is simply guided imagery that helps you achieve a specific state of mind and body. The benefit of guided meditation is that it provides structure and support for your practice. It's like having someone walk you through the steps of learning how to swim, rather than going in the deep end and struggling through it on your own. 

You're able to relax your body, clear your mind and focus on yourself in a way you never have before. Guided meditation helps you tap into your inner resources so that you can live more positively and find peace within yourself.

Meditation is growing in popularity, thanks to its mental and physical benefits. According to a 2017 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of people who meditated grew from 4.1 percent in 2012 to 14.2 percent in 2017. As more people become anxious and fearful due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, meditation is becoming increasingly popular.
