Guided Imagery Meditation

Guided imagery meditation is a great way to practice meditation.

With so many forms and techniques for rumination available, it can be difficult to decide which ones are the best for you to use.  If you allow yourself to be guided, imagery meditation can be a much deeper and more powerful experience.  When you familiarize yourself with the guided imagery meditation that works best for you, you can move on to music or sounds while guiding yourself through the session anywhere, anytime.

There is a guided imagery meditation available for pretty much anything you can give consideration to:  Quit smoking, sleep better, lose weight, stop being lazy, energize, relax, heal, be assertive, gain super learning powers, experience past life regression and contacting the other side or your spirit guide.  Guided imagery meditation can help you unlock your kundalini energy, change your thinking, improve confidence, heal anxiety or overcome depression.  Almost anything you thought you might be needing, there is a guided meditation for.

If you attend a yoga class or listen to a relaxation tape you will have already experienced guided imagery meditation first hand.  Any meditation, relaxation or hypnosis session where you are listening to a voice to guide you comes under this category, and it is definitely one of the most popular and commonly used of all techniques.

One reason guided imagery meditation is worth contemplation is highly due to the ability of your subconscious mind to continue the work even if you fall asleep.  Although everyone sets out with the best intentions of staying awake throughout the entire meditation process, often people still doze off.  This is especially the case when you are meditating to music or using your own mind as a guide.  Regardless of how much deliberation and concentration is used, when your brainwaves reach a certain low, the desire to sleep can be too great for some people to fight. 

If you have a favorite meditation practice you like to follow, why not read it onto a tape or have a friend do it for you?  This will guarantee you still receive the benefits if you do happen to drift off.  Guided imagery meditation is specifically designed to provide you with a process to achieve the deepest relaxation as well as rapid access to your subconscious mind.  This is where most of your programming lies, causing you to do, feel, think and react to situations in ways you are sometimes unhappy about.  By accessing these inner depths of your thinking patterns, you will have the ability to use affirmations and visualizations to reprogram and reaffirm the changes you want to make.

Guided imagery meditation is such a gentle and beautiful process of reflection and relaxation. When you surrender yourself to the guide and allow yourself to let go, your rumination will be the deepest you have ever experienced.  The more regularly you practice the more you will get from your session, therefore practicing daily is the most effective.  Don’t just settle for the first guided imagery meditation you try because there are so many enjoyable techniques available, and each guide has a unique and soothing quality to their voices.  You may find one that resonates with you for a while, then when you become used to it or have made the changes you desired, you can move onto a different one.  As with all meditation practices, the more you do the more healing you will have and the more unshakeable and powerful you will feel.
