Try a Guided Meditation for Instant Relaxation and Inner Peace

By Annette Young

If you have always had the urge to try to meditate but didn’t know where to start, it may be worth considering a guided meditation CD as a gentle introduction to this wonderful resource as this will enable you to relax whilst listening to the simple instructions. Guided meditations open up soothing visual journeys and whilst at first you may struggle to control your mind and to picture the scenes, eventually you will be able to visualize your own participation as if you are there experiencing all of the imagery as if real.

Many people feel tired, stressed and overwhelmed by the pressures of life and so if this sounds like you, you may well find that choosing a CD which has background music or the gentle sounds of nature to invoke the sounds of the sea can be extremely soothing. ,

Guided meditations take many forms, there are meditations for:

Relaxation
Healing
Opening the Chakras
Increasing Self-Esteem
Reducing Anger
Increasing Confidence
Motivation

There are so many CD’s available that you really can indulge in the ones that you feel relate to your own personal situation. If you know that you are suffering from stress, you need to make sure that you do not let it impact your life on a long-term basis. If left unchecked, it can impact your immune system and your mind may feel muddled and chaotic at times. Indulge in a simple meditation as this can strip away the layers of confusion and offer a sense of clarity as well as promoting instant relaxation and a sense of inner peace.

For many, it can be difficult to cast aside those problems that prevent relaxation in the first place, but a guided meditation can help you to focus solely on the voice and your own interpretation of the scripted journey. If you practice regularly, your meditation can become a safe haven for when things are tough in reality, in addition to providing a stepping stone to inner peace simply by closing your eyes; it will enable you to cope with pressured situations much more readily.  If instant relaxation and inner peace sounds tempting, then invest in a guided meditation that will stimulate your senses with beguiling imagery and learn how to escape from the here and now for a short while.
