Listening to one free guided meditation track a day could be the thing that takes your health to the next level.
It’s an integral part of living a healthy lifestyle, and there are plenty of reasons to give it a go. But why is forming the habit of sitting still for 10-20 minutes a day way easier said than done? Like many of you out there, I’ve been wrestling with meditation for quite a few years. Recently, in an attempt get myself back on track and make the pesky meditation habit stick again, I started playing around with guided meditation. For each resource I’ve listed the number of free guided meditation tracks, the different types of mediation available, the average length of each mediation, and whether the tracks are downloadable.
Meditation styles: Loving kindness, mindfulness, forgiveness, sleep, mantra, healing, children. Fragrant Heart is one of my favourite free guided meditation sites, partly because of it’s cool name, but mainly because of the quality of the guided meditations. Some tracks are as short as a minute, which is great for beginners, and they also provide a free guided meditation course too. Tara has a massive library of at least a hundred guided meditation tracks to keep you going, various styles, with a new one added each week.
I’ve used it for quite a few years now, mainly for their collection of free yoga class videos (hip flexor heaven is a personal favourite). The Chopra centre is the brainchild of Deepak Chopra and David Simon, two MDs with the goal of improving the health and wellbeing of body, mind and spirit. Amongst other things, the site hosts a wide range of meditation styles with high quality audio. Most tracks are pretty short, but might be great for someone who’s just getting into forming the meditation habit. It’s really cool to see universities recognising the benefits of meditation and mindfulness! Headphones are recommended when listening, because the tracks are layered over binaural beats, which apparently affect your brainwaves and make you extra mindful. Audio Dharma is a massive resource, with around forty free guided meditations available from a variety of teachers, as well as a shed load of interesting talks and videos on mindfulness. You can either choose the simple guided meditations (which range from 2 to 20 mins) or go solo and use the meditation timer. Meditation styles: Mindfulness, relaxation, loving kindness, body scan, stress, anxiety, productivity, healing. Developed by former buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe, and his business partner Rich Pierson, Headspace is the meditation app and website taking the mindfulness world by storm. It’s an incredible resource, with literally thousands free guided meditation tracks and talks from teachers from all around the world.

This type is usually used for meditating with the purpose of dealing with specific physical or mental issue, so popular guided meditations are, for example: dealing with different kinds of phobias or addictions, pain and stress relief, lowering cholesterol or dealing with Diabetes, and a whole range of manifestation-related meditations meant to enhance manifestation mindset (we also have a separate article dedicated to using meditation for manifesting).


Guided meditation combines two powerful mental techniques: meditation and creative visualization, to bring about the change in the way we think about certain things in life. Our brainwaves, electrical activity in our brains which can be measured, are constantly active, even during sleep and there are 4 basic patterns of these waves: Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta.
Alpha and Theta stages are connected to creativity, visualization, memory and profound learning. The trick is in the way our mind works: it is incapable of making a distinction between a real image and an imagined one, as long as you manage to make the imagined image seem real. In a nutshell, meditation combined with visualizing makes you able to relatively quickly learn new thinking patterns: meditation helps you get in the state in which you learn new things more easily and adopt them on a more profound level, all while relaxing your mind and making you feel calm. The guidance part is there to help all of us who experience real trouble focusing on something, or sticking to the image we’re using to create a new belief. When someone else guides you through the imagery, they won’t drift, they will stick to depicting the scene and they will do it in a way that will make you feel comfortable, in a surrounding that you know is safe and relaxing. In any case, this is one of the best techniques for achieving a specific purpose, such as deep relaxation, behavior modification, or releasing negative emotions and self-limiting beliefs – if you haven’t yet, be sure to try it!
As with all subjects, the best way to learn meditation is to start at the beginning and move towards the end. But unfortunately millions of people are learning how to meditate in the most bizarre fashion.
So, to make the most of this guided meditation course, simply start with the first video and move towards the end. This video gives a fantastic guide to breathing meditation, as part of our complete online meditation course.
While in this position, press your tongue lightly up against your hard palate (you may need to swallow once to remove saliva). Keep your eyes lowered and your eyelids either completely closed or with just a tiny sli of an opening. The purpose of the second type of mantra – mantras that mean nothing – is to focus the mind and to create certain vibration frequencies in the body. At certain points you will notice that your mind is wandering and you are experiencing thoughts. It is the process of labelling your thoughts by saying “Thinking” that is most important in Vipassana Insight meditation. VISUALISATION MEDITATION: Visualisation is one of the more advanced techniques because it integrates the imagination into the process.
Essentially, visualisation can be defined like this: imagining specific things to produce specific results. Or you may use visualisation for weight loss or more, seeing yourself eating and enjoy healthy food. All visualisation meditations come back to the same thing: imagining specific things to produce specific results. Body Scan: Body Scan is, as you might expect, about putting the mind back in touch with the body. So begin by meditating on the sensations in your head, then your face, your neck, arms and so on down to your feet.
Body scan meditation is very important for becoming more aware of your body and for living in the moment. Continue your meditation practice and raise your vibration again by listening to the MP3s . I’m inconsistent, and whenever I do make the time to sit quietly, my mind is racing and I just wanna be somewhere else.
And this week I’ve been tagged at least three times with the guided meditation video below. You have read and agree to the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions - opens in a new window or tab.
Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
It is especially good for beginners in meditation, as the narrator guides you through the process, giving you directions on how to relax your mind and body and helping you to focus your thoughts on specific images and feelings. In a normal, everyday mode, our brain and body are exposed to thousands sensations and thoughts that we react to, consciously or unconsciously. While Beta state is a state of our normal waking consciousness and Delta brain waves are related to deep sleep and unconsciousness, Alpha state is associated with relaxation, focus and wakefulness, and Theta is a brain state of REM sleep (dreams), hypnosis, lucid dreaming, and the barely conscious state just before sleeping and just after waking. Thanks to the meditative part of it, the feeling of peace and calm will pour into your everyday life, and not stay related only to the issue or situation that you’re visualizing.


I actually spoke to someone yesterday who knew precisely how to do Merkaba mediation but who had no clue about Anapanasati.
When you reach the last video you will have learned enough meditation techniques to make you a zen master. Sit comfortably in one of the Zen sitting positions (the video below shows you how) and focus your mind on your breathing, breathing through your nose while keeping your mouth closed.
Walking by itself is very relaxing, so naturally when you combine it with meditation you’re going to find a deep levels of relaxation. When we use a mantra like this we establish that frequency in the body, which helps us to relax both mentally and physically.
Essentially, for most mantras the process is the same: close your eyes, begin to recite the mantra and meditate on the sound. It makes you aware of how your mind scatters your attention and puts you in control of your mind. If you would like to gain insight, click the video to learn all about vipassana meditation technique.
In this instance you would imagine a scene in which you are both giving and receiving love, perhaps seeing friends and family all smiling. When we heard of the virtual reality headset the Oculus Rift we knew it would be the perfect playground to explore.
I was recommended one of her books a while back “True Refuge” and really loved it! Find your happy place as our “Relaxation Artificial Intelligence” walks through proven meditation and mindfulness techniques.

Meditation helps us to slow them down and to listen to them as if they were happening to someone else – in other words, to be an impartial observer of our own experience. In the guide you’ll discovering breathing meditation, body scan, Zen, chakra meditation and many more meditation techniques, all presented in beautiful videos and all for free. Specifically, focus your mind on the sensation of your breath moving through the space between your lips and mouth. Now begin to walk slowly and as you walk focus your mind 100% on the sensation of movement in your legs. For instance, we might meditate on the word Love, which brings thoughts of love to us, or we may meditate on a mantra which means nothing, such as Sheem. When you get back in touch with your body you naturally start using your body more without even thinking about it.
If you notice any tension in your body, imagine breathing air into that area of your body and ask the area to relax. While we backed it on its amazing $2 million plus Kickstarter run, we couldn’t help but pick up a development kit afterwards to build our own creations. Notice each step of the walking motion, the lifting of the foot, the swinging of the leg, the placement of the foot and finally the point at which your legs cross over. Will have to check out some of the others on this list too ?? thanks for the reccomendations!
Be mindful of the entire process of breathing, the rising and falling of the abdomen and so on. This will bring the scene to life in your mind and make it a much more powerful experience. And for the first time ever, leave the sunscreen at home.This is a peek at the trailer for the very first version launched in 2014.
