You can be guided by someone else, or you can guide your meditation. You can find countless guided meditation practices on YouTube, apps as Buddhify or audio files. Because it’s easier to listen to someone else, most people unconsciously think that a guided meditation must be from some master. However, anything can guide a meditation session. You could watch the sunrise, and as the sunlight flows over your skin, that can guide your meditation. The advantage of guided meditation is that an outside tempo is pacing your meditation process along. It’s always easier to follow someone on a premade path than cut down a fresh path on your own. Guided meditation is often a good place to start how to learn to meditate, just don’t become overly dependent on guided mediation being your only path in meditation.
