Making your meditation time feel like it truly benefits you can be difficult.
In our day to day life we are engaged with the world and constantly wrestle with its stresses. Trying to uncouple from this goes against all that have been ingrained into our mind since birth. We sit and the mind wanders to thoughts of others and the day, and the body grows restless, wishing to stretch and twitch.
Guided meditations literally guide the listener/meditator through meditations. There are different approaches to guided mediation with many different purposes and goals. Some guided meditations are focused on quieting the mind and giving the listener a sense of calmness while others have loftier goals, such as reaching higher states of consciousness, or releasing stuck energy patterns. When combined with well-played music, it is the perfect way to find your separation and space from your busy days.

This is a perfect album for an introductory into meditation. The album begins with a soothing voice explaining meditation and how to meditate, focusing on creating energy flows throughout the body, a guided meditation. The created music holds a subtle rhythm with a wide variety of tones, harmonics, and nuances that reside within the instruments. This results in a sonic, mystical feeling providing a vehicle for quieting the mind and body.
Jason Stephenson walks the listener into a sweet meditative sleep through his guided mediation, speaking softly over calming, floating music. The focus begins on relaxing the muscles throughout the body by bringing awareness to specific sections. After the listener has fully relaxed and left their physical form she or he is instructed to imagine themselves as a soaring eagle flying into their subconscious. This vision helps the listener ascend beautifully into a restorative slumber.
David Ji leads the listener through eight separate meditations at varying lengths. Each meditation has a different purpose (i.e. peace, emotional healing, etc.) allowing the listener to seek what they wish through their meditation. Of course, the album also functions well if listened to all the way through, giving a well-rounded practice with a variety of different feelings throughout.
