Meditation, Mindfulness Training, & Guided Visualizations

There are different kinds of meditation, including open meditation (paying attention to what is around you) and focused (paying attention to a single thing). Guided meditation is a type of focused meditation where one listens to someone guide them through a meditation, and typically involves some type of progressive relaxation exercise. Meditation calms the nervous system down.* Meditation can bring a reduction in stimulating brain waves and an increase in calming brain waves. People who mediate may show better focus, less stress and anxiety, more creativity, and better memory.* Meditation has been linked to larger amounts of gray matter in the hippocampus and frontal areas of the brain. More gray matter can lead to more positive emotions, an increase emotional stability, and heightened focus (mindful behavior) during daily life.*

The power of visualization can’t be measured. Learning how to harness your subconscious can bring about growth and abundance.*
