In the guided meditation classes that I’ve been leading, some people get so relaxed that they have fallen asleep and have felt like they missed something, but in fact, the subconscious mind is always listening and I know that those who drift in and out of sleep during the class are getting the greater benefit of the guided meditation. Guided meditation feels like a Spa for the Mind.
There are different types of brainwaves that we move in and out of every day. Beta is our alert state where we use our conscious mind the most. Alpha is when we’re relaxed enough to meditate but are still awake. Theta is the state people access when they choose to follow the directions of a guided meditation or when they dream during the night, and Delta is experienced in a deep, dreamless sleep.
During a guided meditation, theta brain waves allow us to access our intuition, emotional connection, creativity, and deep mental and physical relaxation which reduce stress and anxiety levels. Meditation balances your left and right brain hemispheres resulting in better mental health.
Thomas Edison once said: “Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious.” If you set an intention before a guided meditation or before you go to bed, something that’s bothering you, a problem to work through, or something to let go of, you’ll wake up with answers, feeling rested and feeling really good because meditation naturally boosts endorphins and serotonin, and lowers the stress hormone cortisol.
A guided meditation is like telling your mind what to dream. If you rate your problem before meditation from 1-10 of how much it bothers you, and then rate it after, the number will go down. If you feel like you have a never ending list of things to do before meditation, after it feels like there is really not that much to do, or that only a few things are important to focus on. There is a feeling of lightness emotionally, mentally and physically.
For the best guided meditation, go to a Hypnotherapist because they are trained in language patterns on how to talk to the brain. There are certain words and phrases that the subconscious mind listens to. Your subconscious mind is working non-stop to protect you and won’t let you accept anything that goes against your beliefs.
For deep emotional healing, I’ve experienced lasting results with a 1:1 session with a Hypnotherapist who is trained in how to access the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy has the ability to neutralize emotion from a traumatic memory, forming new pathways in the mind, using a comfortable, dissociative process.
I’ve helped hundreds of people using Hypnotherapy during an online video call and I’d love to talk with you about how to feel peace of mind after trauma and take away the hurts from the past. Free consultation is available. My website is www.chantellen.com
