Are you a fan of Abraham Hicks?
If so, you have to try out these two evening meditations by Abraham. Meditating in the evening is a proven way to reduce stress, help your mind to relax, and even helps you get a better night’s sleep.
1 Hour Guided Sleep Meditation with Music
This first meditation is personally one of my all time favorite evening meditations, and one of my favorite Abraham recordings.
It’s a compilation of Abraham speaking at several different conferences and seminars, set to peaceful music that lulls your brain into a deeper state of relaxation.
I like to listen to this softly in bed just before I doze off to sleep, and is one of the only times I ever meditate lying down. It’s a great way to not only sooth your extraneous thoughts, but also to insert a few good positive affirmations while your mind is in the receptive mode.
15 Minute Sleep Meditation with Music
This second meditation is a bit shorter, and is only 15 minutes long. I like to use this meditation just before I get ready for bed, and usually use it sitting upright with my normal meditation cushion, rather than listening to it in bed like the previous recording, since it isn’t long enough to lull you to sleep.
Hope you enjoy!
Why Meditate Before Bed?
Believe it or not, the few minutes right before you sleep is one of the best times of the day to meditate.
It not only helps you to unwind from the day and release any excess negativity that might still be with you, but it will also help you to sleep more deeply, and creates a more positive tone for you to wake up to the next morning, meaning you can get a jumpstart on tomorrow’s mood, today.
The reason? Whatever you do in the few minutes before bed has a powerful impact on your brain wave patterns while you sleep, and can even impact your dreams. For example, numerous studies suggest you should reduce your screen time at least an hour before bed, in order to give your mind time to wind down, and meditation is another way to give your brain the rest it needs.
