Weird Guided Meditation Track


This is weird. When I first heard about guided meditations I didn't believe any of the hype. Yet, after spending the last 2-3 years meditating, I'm convinced. When I meditate: I feel more relaxed, peaceful, and present at work and with my kids. It has made such a difference in my life that I've done something embarrassing: a guided meditation track. Sacrificing my ego to create this track, I truly believe that you'll enjoy this track if you put on some headphones and take just 5 minutes to get rid of any stress you feel.

On the track, I'm trying to gently guide you to relax and do some simple breathing exercises.

 I'm not a guru or buddhist, but meditation has brought me a sense of calm to help deal with life's challenges along with prayer and other tools. I created this track for people who have never experienced meditation or have a hard time getting focused.

Hopefully, if it works, you'll experience the magic of meditation too. You can listen or buy the track here: https://mgspeaks.bandcamp.com/track/5-minute-meditation

If you try the track out, let me know how it goes here.
