One thing I truly enjoy doing at night is a guided meditation. I find it relaxing, soothing and a helpful way to end my day. It is suggested, in a lot of the things I read, that meditation is encouraged in the morning to start one’s day. But mediation makes me sleepy so nighttime works best for me.
Anyway, back to my point.
A new guided meditation I’m really enjoying is by a hypnotherapist, Chel Hamilton. Her meditations start with 3 cleansing breaths then take you on a short journey; down a path, into a pond, you know, soothing and calm places and focuses on the topic at hand. Relaxation, transformation, forgiveness, etc. And when it’s over you are brought back and the end is signaled by the sound of a gong. And they are short (that’s where the mini comes in). 10-12 minutes tops.
What makes this different from some other guided meditations is that she she’s big into visualization and sensation.
We all know visualization is a big part of goal setting. Seeing yourself leading the team in a meeting, or on a marathon course or driving that new car.
But being able to imagine what it would feel like to be doing something is also very powerful. Imagine how you’d feel finishing the marathon in 4 hours? Imagine what it would feel like to finally lose the 20 pounds you’ve been carrying around?
Your mind is powerful. Seeing yourself reaching a goal is huge but tapping into your body’s response of actually feeling that sense of accomplishment might be your game changer.
