Meditations offered @Tune Within are infused with healing energy and can provide a powerful tool for coping with stress and finding balance in your life. And most important for you to connect within yourself beyond layers of pain and conditioning to the true nature of your being. If you’re seeking to release negative emotions, cultivate inner tranquillity, and discover meaningful ways to achieve calmness, I warmly invite you to explore these healing meditations.

Meditations for you

I recommend trying these meditations without a headset, putting your phone next to you on volume, and letting the voice come from the outside, leaving your ears clear.

As I am only starting these recordings some of them might have additional background sound, don’t worry and allow for it to be a part of the experience, in some places, you may hear my cat joining in and sounding for you, or maybe the sound of life :-). Most importantly is for you to relax, you don’t have to put on yourself any pressure of doing these meditations perfectly and for though I left them flowing and easy without background music. The most important for us during any type of meditation is to be ok with our surrendering without the need to escape it. As in power of being here and now lies all magic and well-being. Enjoy your discovery and let me know how was your experience – I would love to hear your thoughts.

Guidance for Beginners: Embracing the Beauty of Meditation

If you’ve never meditated before or have limited experience, don’t worry; it’s completely normal. Meditation is a gentle practice that anyone can learn. It doesn’t require any special skills or prior knowledge. It’s all about taking a few moments to tune into yourself and let go of the worries that weigh you down.

Our healing meditations offer an accessible and inviting way to start your meditation journey. These guided sessions are designed to provide you with a safe and nurturing space to explore your emotions, thoughts, and inner world. They can help you release negative feelings and find a sense of balance in your life.

The beauty of these meditations lies in their simplicity. All you need to do is find a quiet and comfortable spot where you won’t be disturbed. You can sit on a chair or cross your legs if that feels comfortable to you. If you prefer, you can even lie down. It’s all about what feels right for you.

As you start the meditation, you’ll be gently guided through the process. You don’t need to force your mind to be still or push away thoughts. Just let them come and go, like clouds passing by. The focus is on being present at the moment and gently observing your feelings without judgment.

During these healing meditations, you might encounter moments of peace, and that’s fantastic. You might also find that your mind wanders, and that’s okay too – it’s all part of the process. The key is to be kind to yourself and embrace the experience without any pressure.

Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to meditate. It’s not about achieving perfection but rather about nurturing a connection with yourself. Through these meditations, you’ll gradually discover the layers of your inner self, uncovering the true nature of who you are beyond any pain or conditioning.

So, if you’re seeking a way to find relief from stress and explore the depths of your being, give our healing meditations a try. They offer a gentle path to inner peace and self-discovery, and you’ll likely find that even a few minutes of meditation can have a positive impact on your well-being.

Embrace this new adventure with an open heart, and remember, you’re not alone on this journey. Many have found solace and comfort through meditation, and you can too. Take your time, be patient with yourself, and allow the healing power of meditation to guide you toward a more peaceful and fulfilling life.

Guidance on how to prepare yourself & your space for meditation practice.

As you embark on your meditation journey, taking a few moments to prepare can make a world of difference in the depth and effectiveness of your practice. Here are some steps to help you create a nurturing environment for your meditation:

 

  1. Choose a Quiet Space: Find a space where you can retreat from the outside world, free from distractions and interruptions. It could be a cosy corner of your room, a serene spot in nature, or any place where you feel calm and at ease. It can also be a place at your work where you can take a few minutes for yourself.

 

  1. Set the Mood: Consider the ambience that resonates with you. Dim the lights, light up a candle, you can burn some sage or incense, play soft instrumental music if you like, or simply enjoy the natural sounds around you. Creating a tranquil atmosphere prepares your mind for meditation.

 

  1. Comfortable Seating: Sit in a way that’s comfortable for you. You can choose a chair, a cushion on the floor, or even lie down if that promotes relaxation without the risk of drifting into sleep. Make sure your back is relaxed but also straight, that allows the energy of your body to flow better.

 

  1. Breathing Space: Take a few deep breaths to settle in. Close your eyes and let go of any tension you might be carrying. Feel the weight of the day lifting as you exhale. Then You can start with a gentle observation of your breath, just notice what parts of your body move when you inhale and exhale, and notice if your breath is smooth and easy or if it is restricted. And then just let your breath be.

 

  1. Focus on Intention: Before you begin, remind yourself why you’re meditating. It could be to find calm, gain clarity, or simply nurture your well-being. Setting a clear intention helps guide your practice.

 

  1. Mindful Transition: If you’re transitioning from a busy day, consider a brief mindfulness exercise. Slowly scan your body from head to toe, noticing any areas of tension and releasing them. You can also take a moment and just shake your whole body, with this shaking feel as all the tension is shaken off from you.

 

  1. Silence Notifications: Silence your devices to prevent interruptions. This is your sacred time to disconnect and focus solely on yourself.

 

  1. Posture Awareness: Whether you’re sitting or lying down, ensure your posture is relaxed yet alert. Imagine a string pulling you gently upward from the crown of your head. You can support your back on a chair or wall to make it easier for you to relax. If you lie down make sure your trout is open, and you can breathe easily, it is worth avoiding high pillows when possible. Using Savasana – Yoga pose for meditation is a great option.

 

  1. Time Commitment: Decide on the duration of your meditation. Start with a manageable time frame, perhaps 5 to 10 minutes, and gradually extend it as you become more comfortable. It is great to explore different timings at the beginning to find which feels best, this is also depending on your time availability for this practice. So be willing to explore what works best, you might find that once a week you take yourself on longer meditation, and on other days it stays short.

 

  1. Open Mind and Heart: Approach your meditation with an open heart and a non-judgmental mind. Whatever thoughts or sensations arise, observe them without attachment.

 

  1. Guided or Silent: Choose between guided meditation, where a voice gently leads you, or silent meditation, where you focus on your breath or a mantra. Experiment with it to discover your preference. You can start with guided and decide to sit silently in the energies that were built during that meditation after you finish it.

 

  1. Patience: Remember that meditation is a skill that develops over time. Be patient with yourself and understand that every session is an opportunity for growth.

 

As you embark on this journey, know that this is your special time for self-care and introspection. Let the practice unfold naturally, and trust that with each session, you’re nurturing a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

 

With warmth and encouragement,

Anna.

I sincerely invite you to connect with yourself.

When you do, you will truly shine your light.
