Guided Meditation is when you are guided, by a narrator, to elicit a specific change in mental perception. One example of this would be to relax and let go of stress.
The brain does not distinguish between an imagined event and a real one. Any experiences you have with a guided meditation is just like having a real experience. This has the potential to create amazing effects on your emotions and life due to the way the brain works.
The beauty of a guided meditation is that you can bring about change in your body by using your mind, and that means activating muscles, changing your biological state, and even changing the way the cells in your body work.
Guided meditation engages the imagination through acts of visualization, enhances the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
Guided meditation can benefit all people who use it. People who meditate regularly have been shown to feel less stress, anxiety and depression.
People using guided meditation also report that they experience more enjoyment and appreciation of life and that their relationships with others are improved and it can produce a state of deep relaxation, a sense of balance and a feeling of harmony.
