Learning Guided Meditation
Using a recorded meditation is a great way to get started, but eventually you will want to meditate without using a guided meditation audio. The freedom of being able to meditate at will is amazing and life enhancing. You may find meditating on specific things is helpful, such as dealing with a problem, overcome creative blocks or re-experiencing a beautiful place. If you want to get a feeling of connecting more with nature and the universe, you may find nighttime meditations on the moon beneficial (sometimes called moon gazing).

To fully appreciate the benefits of practicing meditation takes time. Often, though, the results are actually quite fast and after only a short time of using meditation, you may notice that you feel calmer and more peaceful. When practicing meditation, you may soon find that your mind is a little quieter and more tranquil. You may become more relaxed physically. In addition, you may find that you have greater control of your thoughts and can banish negative thoughts from your mind much more easily.
If you want to start the positive habit of meditating then here are some tips to help you get started:
The state of hypnosis is similar to a deep meditation, it is an “altered state” and can feel like daydreaming, but you can come out of it if you want to. Most times if you get into a hypnotic trance you will choose to stay in it for a time, because it is pleasant.
It can feel very different according to the level of trance you are in and if there is a purpose to the hypnosis – i.e. hypnotherapy, then it involves a willingness to follow instruction to achieve a desired goal, a willingness to relax and stay in the state of hypnosis and to listen, even if passively, to the suggestion work. It is very similar to being in a blissful meditation.
