62 Meditation for Detachment from Anxiety Thinking
796
This guided meditation is great for helping your mind set aside the kinds of over thinking that can lead to anxiety, depression, and overwhelm. It is designed for you to use to train your mind towards more of a calm detachment to anxiety creating thoughts, and over thinking off all kinds by learning how to see those thoughts as something in front of you, instead of inside of you. This meditation is useful for alleviating they symptoms of anxiety, depression, and overwhelm. By practicing mindful techniques of conscious observation, detachment, and non-judgement you will find you are more able to quieten and relax your overly active mind. Developing a calming sense of detachment from your thoughts also naturally increases your confidence and your self acceptance - allowing you to become a more self assured person in the present moment. music credit: "Tranquility1" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ photo credit: @kevinhyunlee

58 One Word Meditation Practice
762
The meditation practice shared in this guided meditation episode is powerful to use in 3 totally different ways! 1) As a guided meditation to help you induce a deeper state of calm, connection, relaxation and/or love, 2) If you would like to begin a more "proper" silent meditation practice of 5-20 minutes a day the One Word focal point is a great technique to use, or 3) As a "insta-calming" affirmation you can use any time, any where. My personal fav way to use the One Word Meditation is #3! It instantly calms my anxiety and help me feel more connected and happy every time. Plus my ADD brain loves it because if I get tired of my "one word" I can always start using a NEW one. :-)

39 How To Do Affirmations That Work
716
Personally I used to think affirmations were silly and never worked. That was until I learned how to word them in a way that helps them truly slip past our inner B.S. detectors and straight into our subconscious mind. In this affirmation meditation I share , from a subconscious mind perspective, two ways that people often get "affirmations" wrong - and what to do instead.
