The Mindful Movement have an extensive library of free meditations on their YouTube channel. I particularly like their Guided Meditation for Relaxation, Healing and Vitality.
Hay House Meditations. I access these via PodBean (no account required). There are a lot of great free meditations by Hay House authors.
Matthew Manning is a healer and author. I have some of his previous meditation CDs which are excellent, and he has some new ones available on his website. I also recommend his healing circles if you are able to make one. All The Days of Your Life is a beautiful meditation available on his Facebook page created with Anita Ridley and Tim Wheater.
Abby Wynne is a Shamanic Psychotherapist, Energy Healer, Author and Teacher. She has a selection of free meditations on her Soundcloud channel. Take a listen to her Breathe, Centre and Heal meditation. I love her Healing with the Luminous Beings Meditation Bundle which contains 3 meditations: Healing with the Ascended Masters, Healing with the Angels and Healing with the Elementals. These are between 38 and 50 minutes long.
Kris Carr is an author and wellness activist. You can check out a couple of her meditations for free by signing up to her newsletter: Magical Intuition and Pep Talk. I find her meditations perfect for when I only have a short time for one. I have her Meditations Self-Care for Busy People and Extraordinary: Meditations for a Magnificent Life.
Marisa Moris is a spiritual intuitive. She has a number of great meditation audio downloads on the Hay House website for purchase.
Mindfulness and Meditation Drop in Sessions. Check your local area for free or pay for sessions. One of the churches local to me holds a free mindfulness session once a month which is very good.
Affirmations and Visualisations
The following are some of my favourite affirmations.
- All is well in my world. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation only good will come. I am safe!
- It's only a thought, and a thought can be changed.
- Every thought we think is creating our future.
- 101 Best Louise Hay Affirmations of All Time
- Power Thoughts 365 Daily Affirmations by Louise Hay
Dr Wayne Dyer
- Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.
- You will see it when you believe it.
- Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better.
Our thoughts are powerful and visualisation is a way to help heal. Information on this overall topic can be found in the following books:
David R Hamilton PHD
How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body is a book I couldn't put down and It's the Thought that Counts: Why Mind Over Matter Really Works is an earlier book that covers a similar area.
Your Mind Can Heal Your Body and The Healing Journey.
Self Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion. A free version of this book can be accessed at Project Gutenberg.
Affirmation and Oracle Card Decks
Affirmation and oracle card decks I find a great way to tap into inner intuition. I never saw myself as an oracle card user but find they really do work! A few of my favourite card decks are:
The wild Offering Oracle
Esther and Jerry Hicks
Ask And It Is Given
Breath work is something I can always call on wherever I am and even if I only have a moment to spare. It brings me back into the moment as well as helping to relax me. Sometimes it's easy to forget to breathe well. I find that when I'm concentrating I sometimes end up holding my breath or breathing shallowly. I then bring myself back into the now and take a few deep breaths. I breath from the diaphragm.
In for 4 out for 6 I often breath in for a count of 4 and out for a count of 6, both through my nose. But on the out breath I slightly contract the back of my throat (so the out breath sounds like the ocean waves).
In for 4, hold for 4, out for 4, hold for 4 is another breath that is handy to have in my "toolkit". davidji calls this the 16 second technique to master your emotions. davidji also has a lot of free meditations on his YouTube channel davidji meditation.
Matteo Pistono has a good walk through of breathing from the diaphragm - Belly Breathing to Relax.
As my breath section is quite short I thought I'd add some notes about tapping here as well. Tapping is also called EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique.
The Tapping Solution offer lots of information and free tapping resources. They also have a free app that includes a number of free tapping meditations. Tapping is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.
Nick Ortner and Jessica Ortner have written a number of books on tapping including The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living and The Tapping Solution for Pain Relief. I have found the book on pain relief useful for my knee issue. A list of their books can be found here.
