Guided Meditation For Life Balance And Greater Health

By Gary Russell

Meditating can be said to be a great stress reducer. It also has the added benefit of improving our lives across the board. You can use guided meditation for life balance and greater health and well-being also.

Guided imagery is quickly gaining in popularity simply for the fact that you are not left on your own to figure out what to do. You are led by an instructor or teacher who walks you through the journey step by step taking you on a relaxing journey of mind, body, and spirit. Often these types of meditations have a theme or a purpose. If life balance is your purpose then this will help you.

Some of the benefits of this type of imagery can be realized almost immediately. You gain a sense of calm over your body and mind. This sense of peace and relaxation radiates throughout your being and reduces the stress that you may be under in your daily routine. Life can be hectic and meditation is the key to unlocking those stressful moments and put you back in balance and in control.

Not only does this practice help the conscious mind but also the subconscious as many of our automatic responses stem from the unconscious mind. It helps to change the way we think about things and how we choose to react. It puts us more in the present moment and causes us to be more mindful of our actions and reactions.

When we are in a calm and relaxed state, this does wonders for the body as well such as lowering our blood pressure, boosting our immune systems, improving our cognitive functions and eliminating stress throughout our body and mind. When we find ourselves with negative random thoughts, we can gently push them aside and go on with more positive imagery during our meditations.

Meditating has an overall good effect on our lives and well-being. It gives us a sense of control that we otherwise would not have. We become more established in who we are as a person as we get in touch with ourselves and realize our core strengths and positive attributes.

Life can be busy and fast paced and we need a moment to slow down and allow ourselves to catch up. Meditating gives us the opportunity to slow down our thought processes and take in the present moment like we have never experienced it before. Our senses increase and we become aware of so many things going on around us but we are more calm and relaxed because of it and can handle the hectic pace that life brings.

If you find that you are going through life with more stress and anxiety and that you are out of balance and you don't know which way to turn. Turn to guided meditation for your answers. It just may be the one thing that gets you back on track and in control of yourself.
