Today I listened to Kelly Howell’s meditations. These are quite good, and far better than a bottle of booze or drugs, if you want a “altered state”.
Prayer, especially praying for others, makes you feel good. The guided meditations are like children’s stories, like having a wonderful dream, and they are very pleasing and relaxing.
I like the guided meditations, and many people are producing and improving them. I like the brainwave entrainment, along with the narration, and it soothes me right down. Works better than any alcohol or drug.
For me, I have to use headphones with them. I’ve tried them just on the computer speakers or stereo speakers. It is not nearly as relaxing..and I do not seem to go into the “Alpha” state. This is the state between sleep and normal awareness. Eh- ‘normal’ anxiety!
There are waves of anxiety every day in this world. The news brings reports of disaster, and there are disasters around here.
