Guided meditations are quite popular for both experienced and beginning meditators. They are easy for newcomers to quickly achieve inner stillness and experienced meditators can use them to gain deeper meditation or target specific outcomes.
This Livestrong article outlines their top 3 picks for anyone looking for a good guided meditation. According to their article, these tapes are great for beginners, but also can be a tool for re-focusing and infusing an experienced practice with new insights.
One of their top picks was Dr. Wayne Dyer’s Meditations for Manifesting:
Wayne Dyer is the author of several books on meditation and spirituality including There is a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem. The foundation of his teachings lie in the practicality of a regular meditation practice. In this tape Dyer uses affirmations and mantras to lead participants on a path of self-empowerment through meditation. The affirmations used are non-dogmatic and suitable for everyone regardless of ethnicity or religion. “Meditations for Manifesting” includes two, 20-minute meditation session and each is preceded by an explanation and instruction. They are suggested for morning and evening use and Wayne Dyer narrates each personally.
