Guided meditations are one of my favorite forms of self-care and also the quickest way to manifest your dreams.
In this article, I’m going to share my favorite guided meditations that are perfect for recentering, manifesting and creating a more abundant, beautiful life.

The power of guided meditations
Guided meditations are an amazingly powerful way for recentering yourself and raising your vibration.
They are so helpful for de-stressing, healing yourself, helping you manifest dreams, starting the day right, getting back on track mentally–I could go on and on!
I listen to at least one guided meditation a day, usually at night before I go to sleep. My favorite guided meditations are usually around 20 minutes long and they all help to instantly relax and re-center me.
If more people meditated, we would see less need for prescription anxiety and depression drugs. Meditation has all around benefits for your mental, emotional, and physical health.
Benefits include everything from heightened immunity, lowered depression anxiety levels, lowered blood pressure, higher self-esteem, improved breathing, to increased focus.
We need meditation like we need physical movement and vibrant foods. We thrive when we practice it.
I now crave meditation when I have to go without it. I can feel the anxiety, negativity, and overwhelment of life start to creep back up on me if I go several days without being able to meditate.
There is no wrong way to meditate and I recommend that everyone follow what feels best to them. I personally prefer guided meditations because they help me focus, visualize, and give me perspective over any situation in my life.
My Favorite Guided Meditations for 2019
1. Favorite Morning Meditation
I love this meditation to start the day out right, especially if I had a rough day the day before.
It reminds me that each day is a new, fresh start and that I am a deliberate creator of my life.
2. Favorite Nighttime Meditation
This meditation can really be for any time of day, but it’s one of my favorites to listen to before going to sleep since I do my self-care routine at night, so it’s the time that I most often listen to this meditation.
It’s perfect. It goes over everything you need to focus on in order to let go, feel grateful, forgive, and manifest.
It has 6 phases and is 21 minutes long. It’s an amazing guided meditation that I have found to be very effective.
3. Favorite Powerful Manifesting Meditation
This is my favorite manifesting meditation I’ve used so many times. You pick one thing you want to manifest which makes it super easy to focus on.
I’ve had several readers let me know that they had success with this meditation as well, manifesting all sorts of things. If you try it, let me know what you think.
4. Favorite Prosperity Meditation
This is an AWESOME all-around guided meditation for manifesting abundance into your life.
Unlike the previous meditation where you pick out for yourself what you’re wanting to visualize, this one takes you through a beautiful day filled with prosperity and feelings of abundance.
Honestly this one really competes with my other favorites. I might be listening to this one the most this year, alternating with the 6-phase guided one above.
5. Favorite Financial Well-Being Meditation
Sometimes, we may find ourselves in a situation where we’re really worried or scared about money, or we’d like to feel better about money in general and release resistant beliefs and feelings around it. This is my favorite meditation for any of those things.
I have found this meditation helps me move from a level of income that I’ve been stuck at for some time and allows me to let go and let more in.
A little added visualization I like to do when listening to this meditation is seeing money gently falling from my ceiling on top of me while I’m laying in bed. It just keeps coming down gently and easily, flowing to me without me having to do anything.
6. Favorite Physical Well-Being Meditation
With awareness constantly being placed upon dis-ease and sickness in our world, it is very easy to become anxious about our own health.
We’re worried about what we’re eating, what we’re breathing, what’s genetically in our cells that could pop up at any moment and take us down (or that is currently in our “reality” already).
This is my favorite meditation that helps me to remember that physical well-being is our natural state of being, and that our cells are constantly regenerating.
Our minds are deeply powerful and can heal our bodies once we’re able to let go of limiting beliefs.
7. Favorite Relationships Meditation
This meditation is great for shifting your perspective and improving relationships with others in your life.
Sometimes I get so focused in on what my husband or anyone else in my life does that just irritates the hell out of me, but what we focus on just amplifies whatever is annoying us!
This meditation will help you to shift your focus and perspective around others in your life, which in turn will manifest improved relationships even when we think it isn’t possible.
8. Favorite End of the Day Meditation
I mentioned my favorite nighttime meditation above, but this meditation is my favorite for those nights when I’m very tired, or when I’m overwhelmed and just want to go to sleep. It helps me feel grateful, at ease, like I have nothing to do, and that my vibration will be resetting while I sleep.
9. Favorite Hard Parenting Day Meditation
I’m a parent and some days are just really hard. Some days…I lose my patience and react to them in a way that is deeply regretful to me.
Once they’re in the bed for the night, I may cry in the shower or go to bed with tears in my eyes thinking about that moment in the day where I wish I could go back and change it all.
This is my favorite meditation for a hard parenting day. It is extremely healing every single time I listen to it.
How I Meditate
There is really no right or wrong way to meditate. For me personally, I like to lay down and listen to guided mediations.
I fall asleep most of the time but that’s perfectly fine because the moments before that are a very powerful time.
If you’re listening to a guided meditation and thinking about what you’re grateful for or what you want to manifest, that is what your subconscious mind will be dwelling on while you sleep.
The goal is to let go of any problems or stress that you are focusing on, and let your mind open up to a higher level of expansion or perspective.
