Meditation is hard. As a beginner it feels like you are a Freshman trying to find your way to the upper class keg party with really dubious instructions.
Even for those with a consistent practice, the meditative state can be elusive like an Island from pirate lore which only appears under the light of a full moon.
So why bother? In addition to accessing restorative stress and anxiety reducing brainwaves, meditation forms a basis of stillness to assist with self reflection and decision making.
Like everything in this world however, good things take work and practice makes the master. The first step is finding where you are going, and a guided meditation is one of the best ways to do that. All you have to do is lay back, listen, and follow directions.
This guided meditation borrows from a variety of methods that I have cultivated based on personal experience. From Dr. Joe Dispenza, I utilize the open focus technique, where I ask you to visualize the empty space between your eyes. From there Tom Brown’s sacred silence technique takes over, with a little of Maestro Hamilton’s flavor.

The intended result is to drop you into a deeply meditative state, while keeping you engaged in affirmative visualizations. We close with a trigger breath designed to gradually build a bridge to allow quick return to these elevated states.
