Online Guided Meditation

Online Guided Meditation

‘Mindfulness of Breathing’ uses the breath as an object of concentration.

By focusing on the breath you become aware of the mind’s tendency to jump from one thing to another by raising your consciousness and self-awareness.

The simple discipline of concentration brings us back to the present moment and all the richness of experience that it contains. It is a way to develop mindfulness, the faculty of alert and sensitive awareness.

It is an excellent method for cultivating the states of intense meditative absorption known as dhyana. As well as this, the mindfulness of breathing is a good antidote to restlessness and anxiety, and a good way to relax.

Concentration on the breath has proven positive effects on your entire physical and mental state.

The meditation has four progressive stages leading to a highly enjoyable level of concentration.

Meditation daily can strengthen the mind and body connection.

Yoga

Yoga

Yoga moves you from the sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system, or from flight-or-flight to rest-and-digest.

You typically have less anxiety and enter a more relaxed state. As soon as you start breathing deeply, you slow down out of fight-or-flight to calm your nervous system

Through yoga, you get to know yourself and cultivate a more non-judgmental relationship with yourself. You are building self-trust.

At the end of the day, everything comes down to your relationship with yourself. When you get more confident and become more rooted in your inner self, you develop a healthy, balanced ego, where you have nothing to prove and nothing to hide. You become courageous, with high willpower.

Yoga makes us recognize qualities in ourselves that we were not aware of, helping us be more mindful.

Batch flowers are the system of plant and flower-based essences that was developed in the 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a physician and homeopath who was convinced that emotional well being was key to overall health.

Dr Bach devoted his life to exploring the use of flowers and plants to create a simple, natural and gentle approach to emotional balance. He eventually went on to establish The Bach Centre in Oxfordshire, England, where he developed the essences as we know them today.

As demand for the essences grew, The Bach Centre partnered with Nelsons Pharmacy to help make and bottle the essences, and Nelsons has been responsible for the signature brand essences ever since.

The remedies work through the life force energy or vibration that is transmitted from the flowers to the tincture. This vibration interacts on a subtle energy level with the individual to rebalance the conscious and unconscious and dissolve old patterns of behaviour.
