Guided Meditation

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

As its name suggests, this is meditation where a leader quietly speaks the words that suggest a mental journey. These words are imagery in story form, together with suggestions for relaxation and well-being. It is meditation with a specific purpose. For example, to take a person on a mental journey in order to find their personal spirit guide. A guided meditation also can be used in many ways to help in mediumistic development. The guided meditation can be directed by a person who is present, or by a recording.
