32 – Time for Inner Reflection when the Guide Pauses in Meditation

Part 5: Deep Relaxation Guided Meditations

- Lesson #32


All of the meditations in this program and many other guided meditations will have moments where the guidance pauses and you will be left with only music or silence. This is a time for inner reflection. A moment to allow your thoughts to address what you have been experiencing in the meditation.

There is usually an instruction immediately before the pause to help guide your inner thoughts in the right direction. However, you may find that your thoughts drift and flow to other topics and ideas too. This is okay as it more than likely means that these other thoughts are somehow interconnected to what you are addressing even if it is not clearly apparent how.

Some of these pauses are only a few seconds long while others are several minutes. It is important to stay in the meditation during this time and not think that the meditation has ended. All but two of the meditations in this program have a definite ending that brings you back to full consciousness. The two that do not are designed to send you off to sleep at the end and is indicated as such.

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
