Unlimited dreaming - Magical meditations

As a creative writer, there's this dream I've had for a few years now.
That is to write and record my own meditations. I've written out beautiful angel meditations, and also those who take you through an enchanted forest. Do you like fairies, mermaids, unicorns and all other magical creatures? Great! That means you would like my work.
There is so much more inspiration coming to mind. I think after doing this post, I will sit down and mindmap my way through new ideas. My creativity is itching.

I became inspired by The Honest Guys a few years ago. They are two men on you tube who have written and recorded awesome visualisations and meditations. They, I believe, became inspired by Lord Of The Ring in the first place. That's right, they recreated the world through their own words and make you a part of a journey to the elves or hobbit shire. 


Everyone seems a little scared of the wordt meditation. I think many associate it with forcing yourself in an uncomfortable position and humming a mantra.
Others might get scared being overwhelmed by your own brain. When in silence, a lot may come up.
You don't have to be scared of the word though, because there are many ways to meditate. If the mantra, or silence doesn't suit you in your life right now, you can try other things. Even active meditation, such as mandala coloring.
I certainly get a lot pleasure in listening to a story I am being taken through. It's relaxing and fun.
If you want to know more about meditation, you can find my beginners guide here.



So, why do I have this dream?
Here's why I'd like to share my work with all of you:
 

1. Meditation is inspiring
One of the many benefits that meditation gives is artistic inspiration. You allow your imagination to unfold things for you.

2. Meditation is relaxing
Do you know that meditation is more 3 times more effective than a power nap? It doesn't mess up your day-night mojo either. I'd like to get more people meditating in their busy lives and feel the benefits.
3. Meditation will enhance your focus
And we creatives need that. I've experienced my mind being more able to focus on the important stuff on the day. If you are a full time blogger, you know you need it to. It will help you stay focused on all your goals.
4. Meditation is fun
That is a good reason. Do you remember how much you liked it when a book was being read to you as a small child? Your imagination would make you feel like you were inside the story. That is the experience that will be recreated. I don't know how about you, but I love it! 


What I need for this dream to work out is my a good microphone, a recording program and some beautiful background music.

Have you ever practiced meditation? Perhaps you have a favourite one to share?

Love,
Rainbow

  5. I've tried meditating in the past but I think I've got way too much on my mind to just shut it off for a second - although I would really love to! I love that you listed the benefits of meditation though, I'll definitely look into trying it again.

    1. Haha eena I feel you, and that is perfectly normal!
      have you tried guided meditations as well? They are a good place to start since you follow a story rather than silencing yourself :)

  6. I’ve recently got into meditation again and use the guided relaxations on YouTube. I agree, it’s so calming and I always feel so focused and energised afterwards. That’s interesting to hear it’s 3 times more effective than a power nap, how cool! I think once you start doing it, you miss going a day or so without it. Great post Rose! xx

    1. They are so wonderful, aren't they? Have you tried a few from the Honest guys as well? Big big recommendation. I agree, once you stop it, you will miss it. I find myself looking forward to meditation.

  7. Unicorn and fairy themed meditation just sent tingles down my spine a little like ASMR does, I think it sounds absolutely wonderful! x x

  9. I’ve never heard of The Honest Guys before, but I’ll have to check them out after reading this. It’s so interesting how easy it is for our minds to visualize what someone is saying when we have our eyes closed and are meditating.

    In one of my classes, once class started, we would have 5 minutes of meditation. I found it so relaxing but also hard to keep my mind quiet for so long!

  10. I've never tried meditation but it's something I've wanted to try for a really long time. I have trouble 'switching off' and I think it would be really beneficial for that. I need to get myself in the habit and make it part of my routine x
