42: Quick Body Scan Guided Meditation

42: Quick Body Scan Guided Meditation post image

Making the body more accessible to us gives us a base point with which we can get perspective on excessive thinking, explore our emotions, and get communication from our body that leads us in beneficial directions. The body scan opens these lines of communication! Use it early and often.

I sure hope this has been helpful to you in your exploration of meditation.

    I’ve never tried a body scan before, so this is really interesting and a great opportunity for me to give it a true. Thanks for the in-depth guide through body scan meditation – I wouldn’t have known where to begin without this :)

      The body scan is a great introduction to mindfulness meditation. It’s good when learning at first, and it continues to be useful on and on and on.

    Wo Wo wow!! this was quite powerful! I was totally able to focus on each part of my body and relax into it. Would you advise to try this meditation while being int he water? (I have this weird thing about doing meditation while having a bath). I find the water so soothing but I am not sure whether it’s advisable 😉 any tips would be appreciated. Thanks for sharing! <3

      That’s a great idea. I’m sure we are all grateful that you shared it here. So, yes that is a totally fine thing to do. I’m gonna try that today!

    This one spoke to me A LOT. I am a big excessive thinker, it is good to get a perspective of why I might do it so much.

    Downloading your free ebook now by the way 😉 Thanks a lot for all the hard work you put into this site!

      Great! Actually there’s more than just the eBook– one of the first things is a neat little video instruction on how to pull the rug out from under tons of thinking, quickly! So you are going to love that.

    Thanks for another great podcast! I really enjoyed this one. I feel that awareness of the body and what it is doing is a great place to start. It seems to ground one’s self and gives a great home-base for one’s consciousness.

      I think so too. It’s a great place to start.

    Super effective and helpful Alan. Your guidance really does help me in getting much more consciousness of my body. After a full day of possible stress at work I tend to use this meditation of yours to re-connect in the afternoons. Getting awareness of my body allows me to be much more present and therefore much more conscious of everything that’s going on, both in the inside as well as the outside.

    For those who haven’t tried it, use this meditation to get back to your most precious state… the one where you are ever present, aware of yourself and surroundings, thus giving you a much more free option to select and guide your thoughts and actions.

      You are right. It can be for some people the quickest and easiest way to come down out of excessive thinking. This meditation helps establish the connection of our attention with our body.

  • Caitlin

    This is very interesting! I’ve never heard of “body scanning” involved with meditation. I do think it is important and beneficial to have a keen awareness of your own body. This is necessary both physically and mentally!

  • Lucy Williams

    Surprisingly effective. You take us through each step. As this is a first for me, as I’ve only recently started meditating, I find this a good way to get myself out of the craziness of the day. Your podcasts are such a lifesaver, thank you so, so much for sharing this gift with us. :)

  • Kelly Knight

    I really liked this podcast. I love the step by step process here. I think I will listen to this one a few times so i can get better at this. I am starting to think it might be best for me to do this at the end of the day, but if I’m wrong please correct me. :)
