Today is a new day and my heart is open. That was the mantra on my guided morning meditation today. I recently discovered this amazing YouTube channel – Meditations by Raza and I am so in love with her videos. I have listened to a couple of her guided meditations and her voice is so soothing. The feeling I get after every meditation is so peaceful and relaxing, I could listen to her all day if possible. Prior to finding Raza’s channel, I have tried a couple of meditation apps but I found them too pricey once the free trial ended, so I didn’t carry on with them. I have also tried a few guided meditations on YouTube but I found many of them more distracting than relaxing. Meditations by Raza is the first guided mediation channel I really like.
I fell asleep while listening to a guided meditation
The first time I listened to one of her mediations was just before I went to sleep. The guided meditation was so relaxing, I fell into a deep sleep about 25 minutes into the video. I also had a very restful sleep even though I had vivid dreams. It was so amazing. The second time I listened to her channel was in the morning, I tried a morning guided mediation, and it was so good. I really enjoyed the mediation. I finished it feeling amazing and ready to smash the day. One of the reasons why I like her channel is because she has loads of videos for different kinds of mediation, so there is something for everyone, and her voice is the best for meditating. She is definitely in the right job.
Now that I have found the right guided mediations for me, I can’t imagine not listening to at least one day. Meditating in silence is also good and I will be doing a mixture of both. However, guided mediations help you stay grounded and teach you what to do depending on the results you are after. I think meditating daily is great for mental health, it has worked wonders on mine, and I know it helps many others. It is worth trying if you are dealing with mental health issues like anxiety and mild depression. If you have sleep issues as well, guided mediations may help you drift off. You never know until you try, and your mental health is worth fighting for.
Have a good one.
