I believe that meditation and learning to live in the present is the most rewarding thing you can do for your mental health. Meditation comes in many forms, from the classic “om” to the latest tech to help create an immersive experience.
I’ve handpicked a selection of practitioners who offer guided meditations or subliminal support. I have also added some wonderful technology you can use to either induce sleep or alleviate stress and help you to relax.
I don’t like to dilly dally with a load of waffle so I’ll get straight to it.
If you like tech, as I do, then you cannot fail to be impressed by Mind Place. They produce products which will aid you in the deepest relaxation you have ever felt. At the time of writing, their bundle system called Kasina is popular, with its light and sound meditative software. I’m in the process of saving up for this one as I want the full works. I need it.
The Kasina bundle will immerse you in a visual and aural meditation, and I am super-excited for the day when I get mine. Still, you can beat me to it, and if you do, leave a comment at the bottom of the page and tell me what I am soon to be experiencing.

Dr Jonathan Parker
If you are looking to really turn your life around, Dr Parker has put together a wide-ranging programme that aims to help you. His programs range from letting go of the past to self-empowerment. Plus, if you are spiritual, there are plenty of other ones to choose from. These guided meditations will move you forward in your journey to wellness. Meditation not only benefits the mind. It also helps the body see my article.
Dr Jonathan Parker’s guided meditations and self-practice will help you release some fears and discover more about yourself. One of his programs that look very beneficial is The Soul Solution, and I also like the fact he has free resources you can use on his website.
If you have never meditated before then, Joybija will be really helpful to you, and you can even try them out with a free meditation session, which is always good. As I have grown older, I’ve realised that you need to take advantage of everything as you have to experience life to its fullest in your good moments, which is why I recommend trying out the free session; you have nothing to lose.
Joybija offers a community experience, and you can access their beginner’s course for one year, so you can go as fast or as slow as you wish. The lessons feature videos and audio, and it truly is a course enabling you to learn how to meditate.

I’ve tried to give you varied options in the suggestions I have made, and I hope you will find the serenity you deserve. I’ve also added a video from Youtube below as a beginners introduction to meditation. It is a simple scene, and you need to immerse yourself in the viewing of it. So get comfy, put the video on full screen, watch for ten minutes, and see how relaxed you feel afterwards.
