26 – The Best Way to Stop a Meditation Midway Through

Part 3: The Basics of Guided Meditations

- Lesson #25


If at any time you need or want to stop a guided meditation for any reason, just allow yourself to become fully alert, aware and conscious as gently as possible. Becoming fully alert from a deep meditative trance quickly can sometimes be disorienting.

A simple method I use so as not to shock my system is this;

  1. Become aware of your need to regain full consciousness
  2. Count from 1 to 5, raising your consciousness and awareness each number.
    1. Notice how you are sitting
    2. Become aware of your body, arms and leg.
    3. Take a deep breath in clearing your lungs and chest.
    4. Eyes clearing and feeling refreshed.
    5. Opening your eyes fully alert and awakened feeling fantastic in every way.
  3. Always make sure you are fully awake and alert before continuing your day.

James is an author of the book Empowering Thoughts, a meditation educator, empowerment specialist, hypnotherapist, filmmaker, and photo-artist. He has had a passion for meditation since being introduced at high school. Since then he has studied various forms of meditation before discovering hypnosis and recognising the similarities. He now teaches hypnotic meditation, as well as creating and publishing guided meditations that people can use for personal development. his creative work can be found at JamesCole.com.au

I believe that education on personal development is such an integral part of human growth that I simply cannot justify making it unavailable to people by charging extreme amounts of money for it. In my opinion, this stuff should be taught freely at schools.

However, we live in a world where money is required to pay the bills and fill the fridge. Your donation will ensure I can continue to provide this service and really does make a huge difference as this is what I survive off.

It takes a lot of time, skill and effort to create the content on this web site, which is why the guided meditations are constantly ranked amongst the highest quality on apps like Insight Timer (the worlds No.1 Meditation app).

As a sign of appreciation for your donation, I would love to shout your name from the rooftops (which probably doesn’t really do much for you) so instead, I can also shout it from the social media rooftops if you like, along with your business name if you have one. And if you want to remain anonymous, we can make that work too.

I am honoured that you took the time to listen to this meditation and overflowing with gratitude for your donation 🙏💜

Wishing you a most beautiful day,

James Cole
