Jera's Jamboree : Meditation Monday

Do you meditate?

I have a couple of favourite audio meditations I want to share but first, here’s a couple of books I thought would be fabulous for children (published this month).

Social stories are a wonderful way for children to explore learning and mindfulness. Children love to tell stories, role-play stories and teach others what they learn from stories. Research supports that mindful meditation calms the brain, inspires creativity and enhances cognitive and social-emotional skills. The reflections in The Magic Box incorporate simple relaxation exercises and visualizations designed to improve childrens self-esteem and confidence and reduce stress and anxiety. Practiced regularly, these exercises can have a profound effect on childrens mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.

Love, joy, laughter, comfort, security, creativity, imagination, inspiration and magic are the key ingredients that make a child’s world go round. The Little Angels series evokes all of these things, along with teaching children and reminding their parents about some very important life lessons. This is all done through the pure, loving, supportive and positive messages and guidance of the Archangels. Each book focuses on one particular Archangel, how you can meet them and which specific life issue/area they can help with (i.e. Michael brings you courage when you’re scared), and includes a simple colour-based mini meditation designed to captivate the child’s imagination, and help them to connect more easily to the angelic beings. The books are written in rhyme for a lullaby effect to give added comfort and reassurance, and to aid the child’s own reading ability as the words flow more easily in rhyme. Many children have an imaginary friend, but these books prove to little ones that their angel pals are very real. Invite the angels in and they can make your life truly magical.

I first found out about Glenn Harrold (a long time ago) when he was recommended by a colleague.  Here are a couple of my favourites.

51DaCLDc7oL._SX385_Audio CD
Publisher: Diviniti Publishing Ltd; abridged edition edition (1 Nov 2003)
ISBN-10: 190192369X
ISBN-13: 978-1901923698

This high quality hypnotherapy CD combines powerful clinical hypnotherapy techniques with state of the art digital recording technology. This empowering CD will help the listener feel energised and uplifted by guiding you on a powerful healing journey through the 7 main energy centres of the body called the Chakras. You will hear angelic vocals and sounds tuned to the frequency of each chakra, while you visualise a healing process through each stage of the meditation. This process can also help to overcome disease, illness or discomfort by using the innate healing power within us all. Track 1 is a full 42 minute version, while track 2 is a 28 minute edited version of this powerful Chakra meditation. On both hypnotherapy sessions you will hear a pleasant English voice, angelic vocals and absorbing 60 bpm sound effects guiding you into a deeply relaxed state of mental and physical relaxation. In this very receptive relaxed state, you will be given a number of post-hypnotic suggestions and carefully layered affirmations. The background echoed affirmations pan from left to right in your headphones. This deeply relaxing method of delivering multiple suggestions simultaneously to the unconscious mind can facilitate positive changes very quickly. At the end of each track you will be grounded then gently brought back to full waking consciousness with a combination of suggestion and music. There are also a number of positive subliminal suggestions (listed on the inside cover), which are embedded in the fade out music and facilitate the overall effect. This powerful CD is a completely safe and very effective way of bringing about an uplifting feeling of health and well being in your mind, body and spirit.

Amazon tells me I bought this in 2009.

I’m enjoying the freedom of lifestyle blogging and sharing my love of anything that makes life easier! As well as a lover of words, I’m a stationery addict and lifelong learner.

I feel passionate about early help for special educational needs, disability and families who are struggling. I’m a member of my local Early Help Operational Board and it’s an honour to be working alongside others to instigate change and growth.
