Finding The Best Meditation Program To Start

This article takes a look at some of the positive attributes both guided and binaural beats meditation and finding the best meditation program that fits you.

If you have started developing an interest in meditation, I’m sure you have a million questions like I did. What is guided meditation? What are binaural beats? How do I start? How do I benefit from it?

When I started looking for a program, I soon realized the assortment of choices that were available out there. And many of them focused on different characteristics of meditation, or used a variety of techniques, making choices overwhelming.

Instead of trying to find the best of the best of all the programs out there, I had to narrow it down to the best meditation program that worked for me. And in doing that, there are certain qualities that I was looking for when deciding.

Ease of use. When I was checking out meditation programs, I was looking for something that was going to be easy to use, since I had no idea what I was doing. Guided meditation was perfect for a beginner like me and was effective in directing my mind through suggested centering thoughts and mantras.

I have also used Ripple Effect Meditation, a binaural beat meditation program that brings you to a meditative state while listening to light music with headphones. I enjoyed this, too, for the ease of use. Each program suggested visuals to picture while listening to the track, making it a simple program when first starting out.

Cost. Cost can be THE deciding factor in picking almost anything out. It can hold the same weight when choosing a meditation program. Many guided meditation programs can be purchased for the average cost of a cd or dvd. Ten to fifteen dollars is an extremely reasonable cost for the benefits you can experience from these programs.

Again, a binaural beat meditation program was reasonable, but not the cost of a cd. Ripple Effect was just about $49, but I consider it a good investment. It introduced me to meditation in a very simple manner, creating an interest in the scientific approach of meditation and taking the pressure off of “being able to do it” and just relaxing.

Accessibility. Many guided meditations are available to download, but some are still only available on hard copy, or cd. When I got my first program, I wanted to start right away, before the excitement subsided, so I looked for something I could download instantly.

Almost all binaural beats are available in a download version and some offer the hard copies for a little more. This makes these programs available immediately, sometimes with options, but for a little more investment.

One note concerning guided meditation. It’s important to feel relaxed with the narrator of the program you choose. The biggest complaint I have seen in reviews is they can’t stand the voice of that particular speaker.

Other than that, guided meditation offers a great introduction to meditation for a very reasonable investment.

If interested in a more scientific approach to meditation, a binaural beats program is a great start.

Either way, they promote a healthy practice, and to me, the best meditation program is one that gets you started.
