No cookie cutter recipe will work for everyone. If you are looking for meditation/hypnosis recipes, they may work for a time but will probably ultimately fail. Meditation and hypnosis are ultimately about the mind, so no matter how good a visual aid you have, it will eventually lose its appeal.
No, it is not easy. Meditation is the stripping away of all that might be a distraction and surrendering to simply be. This idea of simply being is difficult. It took me nearly 3 years to actually reach a meditative state myself. I now meditate 3 times a day for at least 30 minutes.
I started my meditative practice with the goal that bettering myself would then ultimately benefit my loved ones.
There is never a wrong time to begin your own personal meditative journey. Be sure how you choose to meditate or who voices your guided hypnosis sessions; make sure it’s a perfect fit. In the end, this is your mind. This is your choice. Do not let fads or trends dictate who gets inside that head of yours – it’s not cookie-cutter either.
Sleep is the best meditation. Dalai Lama
