5 Youtube Guided Meditations to Get You Through The Month
May is the month of many things from National Salad Month to National Mental Health Awareness Month. Thanks to the weather, the new moon in Taurus, and the beginning of Gemini season you may feel a bit overwhelmed by everything coming at you this month. While there are many ways to get you through this month, incorporating guided meditations into your schedule can be the calm you need in the midst of the whirlwind. May also happens to be designated as National Meditation Month by the yoga community. Guided meditations are meditations led by a teacher, in person, via audio or video. People who struggle with focusing and submerging into meditation find guided meditations extremely helpful; others simply enjoy testing out new meditations. If you don't have the time to attend in person classes, Youtube has a great library of guided meditations for every season of life. Here are five of our favorite guided meditations to help you get through the month of May.
Have you been itching for a new beginning? We’re almost halfway through the year, so it’s not unusual to feel the need to reset or restart during this time, especially if your year hasn't gotten off to a great start. Thankfully, you can benefit from the desire for new beginnings that is felt during new moons. When you couple that with Taurus’ call to embrace material enjoyment in the form of nature, earth, and physical body, you can open yourself up to connect with the beauty of your experience. This is a great time to cleanse and replenish yourself as you prepare to plant new seeds and initiate new purposes in your life. This guided meditation by Neo Feminine Astrology guides you through fully embracing the lavish force that is New Moon in Taurus.
Get ready for things to get intense! The Scorpio sign is known for its intensity, and when it’s paired with a full moon, you may find yourself needing to pull out your POSE box lingerie. This guided meditation by Jennalee Hendricks guides you as you try to harness the intense energies of the Scorpio Full Moon. Throughout the video, you are encouraged to dig deep and unlock your personal power.
Whether you are born under the Gemini sign or not, Gemini season is an extremely talked about time of year. As a sign that gets its fair share of negativity, sometimes the positives of Gemini season are often overlooked. Thanks to the high spirits of this air sign, you may find yourself feeling more carefree and outgoing than usual. This guided meditation from Chopra House teaches all signs what it means to live carefreely and guides them through the process of getting to the point of carefreeness. Listeners are encouraged to leave fears behind and focus on moving through their days lighthearted and worry-free. This meditation will help you set the tone for your life during Gemini season.
Does the phrase “Mindful May” sound familiar? We don’t know if it’s the catchiness of the phrase or the conversation surrounding mental health awareness that puts mindfulness at the forefront of this month. Mindful.org describes mindfulness as the “basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” This popular 20-minute meditation The Mindful Movement walks you through being present and helps you develop your skill of being mindful.
Positive energy is needed all year round, so you can’t blame us for sneaking this meditation in every month. Due to our fast-paced ever moving lives, we often find ourselves in need of cleansing and balancing as well. This guided meditation posted by The Anxiety Guy covers covers the standard basis people strive to cover during meditation.
