The Meditation Podcast
Twenty-three - Eyes
Today's meditation is about releasing grief. Grief can occur in the loss of a loved one, the ending of a relationship, loss of a job, or loss of a home; and its effects can linger long after the loss itself. In this episode, we let go of grief and begin anew.
Twenty-two - Eyes
Twenty-one - The Unknown : Fear, Risk, Failure and...
Have you ever wanted to acheive something, but chosen not to try because you were afraid of failure? Taking a risk means inviting a change into our lives. Success may mean satisfaction or reward, but it can also lead us into life's uncharted territory: the Unknown. On the other hand, failure may mean disappointment or shame, but it may also allow us to stay in life's comfort zone. The Unknown can be a terrifying place, and if our subconscious is not prepared, we may block our own success,...
Twenty - A Short Meditation
In response to your requests, this is a short and simple meditation. Use this meditation during a break from work, or anytime you want to recharge, but only have a few minutes -- eight, to be exact.
Sixteen - Sit Still and Breathe
In any art or occupation, it's a good idea to go back to basics from time to time. The art of meditation can be a lot of things, but in its most basic sense it is just sitting still and breathing. This, all by itself, can be a profound experience, and it builds a safe and solid foundation for more advanced techniques.
Fifteen - Wake Up!
Use this meditation after sleep to help bring yourself into a state of wakeful awareness. It is a short meditation, designed as a companion to Episode 14, Rejuvenating Sleep. The Wake Up meditation can also be used on its own.
Fourteen - Rejuvenating Sleep
In our busy lives, many of us have trouble sleeping. We awaken feeling tired, overwhelmed. This is because many of us have suppressed our bodies' natural ability to renew ourselves. This meditation is designed not only to help you fall asleep, but to enter an inner world of peaceful rest.
Thirteen - Finding Your Voice
Through the course of our daily lives, it's possible for us to forget how to express our true selves. This can manifest as shyness, sore throat, vocal polyps, even a complete loss of the speaking or singing voice. In today's meditation, we make sound in our bodies, allowing our vocal cords to simply vibrate.
Twelve - Peace
Is there someone or something in your life that's driving you crazy? We all experience tension and frustration from time to time, whether it's with a person -- a family member, a co-worker, a spouse, a friend -- or a situation -- like driving to work or waiting in line. Even if that person or situation never changes, it is possible to change the way we experience it. Today's meditation is about creating peace, and allowing that peace to extend beyond ourselves.
Nine - Addiction
There are different ways an addiction can begin. It may start as recreation, medical necessity, relaxation or comfort. Addiction can take the form of food, alcohol, drugs, sex and more. The common thread is the desire to fill a void, especially when situations are beyond our control. Eventually addiction grabs hold in the subconscious mind, and the void becomes a physical dependency. It is possible to break this dependency in the subconscious. In this meditation, the focus will be on...
Eight - Transformational Breathing
Anxiety, anger grief and fear are examples of persistent emotional states that linger because of our unwillingness or inability to let go of past experiences. In this episode, we use breath and 'relentless self-acceptance' to help work our way through these states.
Seven - Your Sacred Space
This month's episode is about regeneration in your Sacred Space. We will guide you through a technique that takes you into a sacred place - your own inner sanctum or sacred grove. In this place, you can regenerate your energy, renew your creativity, and gain a new perspective on choices you may have to make.
Six - Falling Asleep
Many of us have trouble falling asleep. We go to bed tired, but then lie awake fidgeting, or consumed with anxiety. We deprive ourselves of the rest and regeneration we need for healthy, productive lives. This meditation uses a new set of tones, designed to aid the listener in falling asleep, and to experience a deep, peaceful rest.
Five - Healing Series, Part 2
This meditation is part two of our series on deep-level healing. As we continue to heal our consciousness of past anger, resentment or guilt, we can begin the healing process on a physical level. We can now visualize whole health in the areas of our bodies that have been afflicted with ailments and diseases. It is important to understand that this is not an instant cure, but a process which can be done daily.
Four - Healing Series, Part 1
This meditation is part One of a series that focuses on deep-level healing. Healing begins in our consciousness. Our mental and emotional states play a big part in our health. It is natural to feel a full range of emotions. However, when we hold onto anger, resentment or guilt, and these feelings are not processed and released, they stagnate within the body, causing illness and dis-ease. This meditation, which can be used daily, can help you process these feelings, and bring about total well...
Three - Positive Thoughts
Each of us, whether we realize it or not, abides by a universal law of attraction. What we think about, and talk about, we attract into our lives -- no matter whether we think about wanting it, or not wanting it. Therefore it is very important to think constructively. So rather than saying, 'I don't want to have these health problems anymore,' say 'I'm so glad to be healthy!' or 'I want perfect health.' Instead of trying to get out of debt, try to attain prosperity. Don't anticipate conflict...
Two - Calming the Body
This month's podcast is about calming the body. It sends a wave of relaxation from the tips of the toes to the top of the head. This helps us reduce stress, relax the body, and relax the mind as well. And this allows us to go deeper into a meditative state, making us more productive in our lives, and more peaceful in our hearts. Remember that while this podcast uses guided imagery, it also uses sound technology that affects the right and left sides of the brain, to help us enter a deeper...
One - A Basic Meditation
In its simplest sense, meditation is sitting still and breathing. You might sit, stand or lie down -- some forms of mediation even involve movement -- but the idea is to break away from habitual movement, such as fidgeting, and the impulse to 'do' something. By focusing on the breath, we focus on the most important aspect of life. We wouldn't survive long without breath, so why not spend a few moments paying attention to our breathing?
