I don’t know how I feel about using online resources for meditation. Something about my laptop just doesn’t scream inner peace and tranquility. In a bind, though, I might give it a shot, and I found an awesome list of ten free guided meditations available online. You can read about all ten over at Be Conscious Now, but here’s the info on the first four. Ommmmm…

1. Universal Soul – 6 minutes: This is a video meditation, and it’s short, so it’s a nice one to do if you only have a few moments. The trick is to treat it exactly as you would a aural meditation. Plant both feet firmly on the floor and ground yourself. Place your hands in a comfortable position on your lap. Focus on your breathing and hit play. As you watch, drop all thoughts and judgments and just lets the words, images and sounds permeate your very being. See the meditation without thinking about it, and you will feel it’s magic working. This is a stunnig experience put together by Vera Nadine. Enjoy!

2. Meet a guide – 19 minutes: I had the honour of testing this meditation before it was posted, and I loved it. I’ve long admired Jeff Lilly’s posts on his meditations, and envied his ability to ’see’ the most amazing scenes unfold before him. He really does have a knack for the visual – so I was eager to see what would happen if he guided me through a meditation. I wasn’t disappointed. Both times I have done this lovely meditation, I have ’seen’ a guide and spoken to them. It’s the most concrete visual experience I’ve had from meditation so far. No doubt part of this is because I have been meditating more and more, but I think part of it is also Jeff’s magic. This is a meditation I will be returning to time and time again. (Plus it’s a great length at just under 19 minutes…) Don’t skip the article either, Jeff has some great stuff to say about meditation, and it’s well worth reading that before clicking on the meditation.

3. Brain Sync – 10 minutes: To get access to this meditation, you need to subscribe to their newsletter, but it’s easy to immediately unsubscribe if you’re not interested. This is a great practical meditation which focuses on the physical and real first, like the breath and relaxing the muscles of the face, before moving into imagery of a deep, still lake and a refreshing waterfall. It’s described as a health and well-being meditation, but I found it invigorating and especially enjoyed the very end, when it tells you that you have everything you need in life. (Discolosure: If you go on to purchase any Brain Sync products, I do receive an affiliate commission.)

4. Visit the Angels – 30 minutes: You need to download this file, and as it is quite large (27.5MB), it can take some time. It’s only good if you’re on a high speed connection. I really enjoyed this meditation though, and am glad it’s now saved on my desktop. It does use angel imagery and angelic realms, so if these don’t resonate with you, it’s probably not the meditation for you. I was able to see and sense my guardian angels on either side of me taking me into the angelic realms, and felt the joy and happiness described in the meditation. It’s a long meditation, but the time flew past.
