This second mindfulness meditation practice is similar to the first. In fact, this one takes over where the previous one left off.
There is no rush for you start on your second guided meditation practice. It is best for you to continue the first guided meditation practice for 21 days in order to instill the good habit of daily meditation into your mind. Practicing something of this nature for 21 days in a row conditions your relaxation response system to recognize the benefits of consistent practice.
Quite possibly, you no longer need to use the recording of the first guided meditation practice to achieve your best meditative state. This is perfectly fine.
The preparation for this guided meditation practice is identical to what you did for your first guided meditation practice. If you feel like it, you may try a different preparation for this practice. Doing so is not necessary.
So find a comfortable position where you will not be disturbed for at least 9 minutes and get yourself ready for this guided meditation practice.
This meditation practice begins the same way as the previous one. So you will once again begin with the sound of three bells, followed by six deep breaths, and the relaxing phrases to bring you into your body and to the present moment.
Perhaps you noticed in the first exercise that as you became familiar with your in breath and as you became aware of your out breath that your in breath became deep and your out breath became slower. If this was not true for you just give it some time. Perhaps your in breath got deeper without you noticing it. Perhaps your out breath became slower and you did not recognize it.
Please get ready for the second guided meditation practice.
Ready? Let’s begin.
How was this guided meditation for you? Did you notice your in breath becoming deeper – at least towards the end of the session? Did you notice you out breath becoming slower at any time during your meditation?
Just like the first meditation, you will easily get the hang of this one. After a few days or so, you may even drop listening to the recording and do it all from memory.
If you find that you have some extra time to practice or that you are motivated to practice more than once a day, you might want to combine lessons 1 and 2 into a longer session. You will probably want to wait a week or two before doing this.
