I have done Self Hypnosis by listening to CDs since I was a teenager.  Ok, they were cassette tapes back then.  This was a form of guided meditations.  It was a great way to quiet my mind and fall asleep – with an intent to do work on something specific, like stop biting my nails.

Guided Meditations are like having a personal meditation coach walking you through a meditation.  It can be helpful for those whose minds are always on the go to have someone talking to them and guiding them into a meditative state.

I mentioned in the Insight Timer App there are guided meditations.

I still want you to practice meditating on your own with our short meditations.


Practice a short meditation on your own. 

Set your timer for at least 1 minute.  

Using your finger movements

Breathe in Peace & Calm

Pause (2,3,4)

Breathe out and Smile

Pause (2,3,4)

Repeat until your timer dings!

Then try using a guided meditation on the Insight Timer App
