The first time I meditated I hated it. “So…am I just supposed to sit here and focus on my breathe?” What? That made absolutely no sense to me.

And now I absolutely love it, and it is has been one of my guiding lights.

Whether you’ve never meditated before, you’re just getting into it, or you’re on your way to becoming a bodhisattva, I welcome you to check out the following guided meditations with a sense of curiosity.

I will not say much about what they mean to me in order to leave them to your interpretation, though I’d love to hear in the comments if any of them spoke to you. Furthermore, please share in the comments the URLs to any of your favorite meditation tracks, along with a description of it and any other notes you’d like to share. Not only would I love to check them out, but I’m sure others would as well.

Perhaps this page can become a library of meditation recommendations for one another.


About Lauren Rains

Hi my name is Lauren Rains. I write about the human experience. Through thick and thin, I’m dedicated to growth, adventure, integrity, and love. The Mad To Live is based on my pursuits, experiments, research, and lessons of challenge and triumph in all areas of life, including being entrepreneur, a writer, a philosopher, a traveler, a teacher, a student, a creative, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a significant other, a stranger and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I believe human beings are here for two reasons: 1.) to love one another with total acceptance, and 2.) to see what we’re made of as we create the possibilities for an abundant life for ourselves and for others. No more bullshit, let's just enjoy our lives.

Share with me what you're getting into that matters to you. It could be stepping into entrepreneurial pursuits, embarking on a journey of the self, making a crazy life change, or even if you're totally stuck. I want to connect with, support, collaborate with, and learn from as many people as possible through this blog (that means you!)
