Lifestyle: The Meditation Podcast

Practicing meditation is a lifestyle recommended by many. Nowadays, with busy lives and no time to stop and smell the flowers, taking a few minutes of your time to relax and unwind is almost impossible. However, it is a much needed time off, bringing healthy benefits, and much welcomed by your body and mind.

Meditation is not easy to practice: to sit still for even 5 minutes may be a burden because our mind is so used to wandering and going back to thinking about our problems and lives and what to do and agendas etc. Finding a guided meditation to help you with the technique and channel you inside your own mind to concentrate on your breathing and deep relaxation is the best way to go if you're serious about spending some time on meditation.

I found The Meditation Podcast by chance, and it proved to be a great tool to deep relaxation. Those who are familiar with meditation and use the Silva method may also find this a different and more subtle way to meditate. The Meditation Podcast uses audio technology, called binaural beats, to slow the brainwaves, along with music and guided imagery, to produce a deep feeling of peaceful relaxation. The effect is similar to yoga, energy healing or a very restful sleep. You should listen to it using headphones for greater benefits when you're in a place where you won't be disturbed for a few minutes. It's also very important not to drive or multitask while meditating. This should be a time to unwind, relax and energize your body and mind and you can really do it!

The recordings are done by a couple, and both man and woman have soothing, calming and relaxing voices that help with the process.  They are not affiliated with any health care practice or religious beliefs, and their philosophy is based on the law of attraction, as you will experience on some of their guided meditations, such as my favorite one, "Positive Thoughts". There are 20 episodes on the podcast, and each one focus on a specific issue (sleeping, waking, energizing, etc). They add episodes every once in a while.

Check their site for more information, or look them up on Facebook. If you want to try meditation, this is a great tool for starters, as well as for those who are already practicing meditation through different methods or teachings.

Enjoy your peaceful time and meditate for great life benefits!
