Daily Meditations

Be1ieve posted 1/21/2020 23:55 PM

I was looking for daily meditations, of any sort, for those grieving, wayward, betrayed or anything positive. It can be books, emails, podcasts or anything.

I use insight timer app (free version) on my phone. I love it. Can choose guided, with or w/o music, w/ or w/o religion, etc. Worth MORE than I paid (cuz it was free). I tried Calm, but felt the unpaid version was too limited. Insight also allows to choose how much time (5-10-15 min, etc) and to filter by benefit, so you can choose sleep or gratitude or motivation, etc.

I'm also recently listening to Rick Hansons' Meditate for Happiness. It's an interesting book and has some meditations. On a friend's recommendation, I recently bought a CD of his meditations, but haven't yet had a chance to try them.

There's a ton of stuff on hoopla for free - I can access it via my local library (I'm probably on Hoopla once a day or so - tonight I got through the first hour or so of Hollis' Living an Examined Life). I think I just searched meditation and got several hits.

There are also lots of CDs at my local library that I'd check out and give a whirl.


ETA - on the book front, I have a codependents anonymous I use, but some may find it heavy handed on the 12-steps.

I have another book I enjoy but I can't for the life of me remember it (I can see the front and the typeface, but not the darned name). I'm out of town but will see if I can track it down when I'm home again.

Iím a fan of the app Calm. Great regular meditations, great emergency meditations, and I love the sleep stories to help me on those restless nights.

Pema Chondron books. I just ordered Awakening Loving Kindness. She's a Buddhist monk.

My therapist showed me a book of daily readings by Melodie Beattie. You may know her name from the book, Codependent No More. I think it might be an alanon book. My therapist said I can sub "the difficult person" for "the alcoholic".

Real Happiness by Sharon Salzberg might be a good one. I was introduced to that book last night at a meditation group. It's a 28 day meditation program recommended by someone who has been meditating for many many years.
