This audio presentation will take you gently into a deep restful sleep under the guidance of Sara Dylan. Sara’s soft, kind, reassuring voice will lead you step by step into the safe, comfortable mind-set that will be conducive to achieving deep restful sleep. The intention of this meditation for deep sleep is that you will sleep soundly and deeply and wake up feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Everyone has a rough night or two, and about 30% of adults have occasional or short-term insomnia. Chronic insomnia, though, lasts for more than three weeks. About 10% of adults experience chronic insomnia, and most need treatment to get relief. You can help your doctor evaluate your problem by keeping a sleep diary, which tracks such things as: number and time of caffeinated beverages during the day, naps during the day, your bedtime the previous night, and number of awakenings during the night.

Meditation can help with sleep but there are other things to consider which will improve your chances of getting to sleep and staying asleep. The UK National Health Service recommends the following:

BE SURE TO • go to bed and wake up at the same time every day – only go to bed when you feel tired • relax at least 1 hour before bed – for example, take a bath or read a book • make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet – use thick curtains, blinds, an eye mask or ear plugs • make sure the room is not too hot or too cold • exercise regularly during the day • make sure your mattress, pillows and covers are comfortable

TRY NOT TO • drink alcohol, tea or coffee at least 6 hours before going to bed • eat a big meal late at night

DO SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF • you've had trouble sleeping for months • your insomnia is affecting your daily life in a way that makes it hard for you to cope

A full 30 minute self directed relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook .

This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go.

While initially it will take several minutes to go through these instructions, with some practice greater and greater relaxation should be achieved in less time.

Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and the results can be very rewarding.

A full 30 minute progressive muscular relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook.

This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go.

To get you to relax we are going to ask you to perform a series of exercises. When a muscle is contracted and then relaxed it returns to a state that is more relaxed than before the contraction took place. To achieve a totally relaxed state we need to perform a series of exercises that contract and relax all the muscles in your body. Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and like self directed relaxation the results can be very rewarding.

Smoking Cessation: The Life You Want Through Meditation
  • Smoking Cessation: The Life You Want Through Meditation

$3.99

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording includes two full meditation sessions and is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to stop smoking and achieve mindfulness in your daily life.

First, Smoking Cessation: Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking. Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive, making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult.

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide, and quitting smoking significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as heart disease and lung cancer. Seventy per cent of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50 percent report attempting to quit within the past year. Many different strategies can be used for smoking cessation, including quitting without assistance ("cold turkey" or cut down then quit), medications such as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), and behavioural counselling. The majority of smokers who try to quit do so without assistance, though only 3 to 6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful. Use of medications and behavioural counselling both increase success rates, and a combination of both medication and behavioural interventions has been shown to be even more effective.

Because nicotine is addictive, quitting smoking leads to symptoms of nicotine withdrawal such as craving, anxiety and irritability, depression, and weight gain. Professional smoking cessation support methods generally endeavour to address both nicotine addiction and nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

This short meditation is designed to help you to achieve smoking cessation through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing and receiving reassuring and reinforcing instruction with the use of visualisation. This audio is not hypnotism simply the use of effective positive affirmation while in a relaxed state. Results will be better if used in association with other interventions mentioned above.

The intention of the second guided meditation is that you will learn to bring mindfulness into your daily life which will help you to feel less stressed, more at ease within your body and mind.

In cart Not available Out of stock
$3.99

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation. Specifically how to let go of anxiety and achieve chakra balance and full relaxation.

This audio includes two full meditation sessions: Firstly to help you to let go of anxiety and second to clear your chakras and bring full body relaxation.

First: Anxiety is a word we use to describe feelings of unease, worry and fear. It incorporates both the emotions and the physical sensations we might experience when we are worried or nervous about something. Although we usually find it unpleasant, anxiety is related to the ‘fight or flight’ response – our normal biological reaction to feeling threatened.

We all know what it’s like to feel anxious from time to time. It’s common to feel tense, nervous and perhaps fearful at the thought of a stressful event or decision you’re facing – especially if it could have a big impact on your life. For example:

sitting an exam going into hospital attending an interview starting a new job moving away from home having a baby being diagnosed with an illness deciding to get married or divorced

In situations like these it’s understandable to have worries about how you will perform, or what the outcome will be. For a short time you might even find it hard to sleep, eat or concentrate. This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anxiety through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing.

Your chakras are energy centres located within and around your body which get blocked for various different reasons. Your way of thinking has a big influence on your chakras. Negative thinking can block their flow and positive thinking helps them flow freely. In this meditation you will cleanse and clear your 7 major chakras. Virginia Harton will gently guide you through each chakra during this guided meditation. The intention for this chakra meditation is that all of your chakras will be cleansed and you will feel total body relaxation.

By Virginia Harton Improve your life and health: This audio recording is designed to teach you how to get the life you want through meditation: Specifically how to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence.

Deciding to take action to lose weight is a personal choice and is very much dictated by individual circumstances and feelings: However, Doctors agree that if you're overweight or obese, losing weight can reduce your risk of some potentially serious health problems.

Most people who need to lose weight can get health benefits from losing even a small amount – about 5% – of their weight if they keep it off.

Health problems linked to being overweight: If you're overweight or obese, you have a higher risk of: high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and back pain.

You can find out if you're overweight by calculating your body mass index (BMI). This shows whether you're a healthy weight for your height.

The size of your waist is also important. If it's too large, your risk of health problems is higher.

This audio meditation is designed to assist you to lose weight, eat mindfully, and develop inner confidence with the use of relaxation, breathing techniques, positive affirmations and guided visualisation in a relaxed state.

$3.99

This audiobook features a full meditation experience written by Virginia Harton and narrated by Sara Dylan.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this

Your anger, if persistent and frequent, can have a devastating effect on your life and those around you. Spouses and other family members can struggle to cope and to them it may feel like walking through a mine field not knowing what is going to “set you off”.

Treatments you may seek for your anger will always start with your Doctor. Always consult your Doctor if your anger is causing problems in your life. Your Doctor will make a diagnosis and prescribe the best solution for you: This may range from medication to face to face counselling.

This short meditation is designed to help you to deal with anger through exercises to relax the body and the mind while focusing on your breathing.
