Guided meditation focuses on experiencing the present moment fully. Be more present and mindful.
Most of guided meditations start, include and end with the breath. This is the hardest part (for moi). Just sitting quietly. Why would one do what is simple?-someone would ask.
See, whenever thoughts arise (oh and they will!), go back to your breathing once again. If some emotions might rise to the surface, I guess put them in your memory bank for the time being, and deal with them once the meditation is over.
From guided meditations you then can evolve doing them all by yourself.
I’ll keep this short and sweet, mostly because something like meditation is a personal thing and also because you have to find your own type.
