How to best prepare for the serenity of the breath and the body meditation:
This guided meditation can be done lying down or sitting in a comfortable position. Make sure you are comfortable and warm for the duration of the practice.
This meditation can be done at any time of the day. It is most beneficial when your mind is overactive or looping on a specific subject.
Remember, there is no wrong way to meditate. All you need to do is be present to the voice that is guiding you and simply observe without judgment what you are experiencing in each moment.

Feeling the serenity of the breath and the body is a guided meditation to bring your mind into a natural state of stillness. You will be guided through the five levels of awareness of the breath and the body, spending one full minute in each state of awareness.
By focusing on the breath and the sensations of the body, your consciousness is drawn inwards, stilling internal chatter and dissipating the mental attachment to external stress and stimuli.
As you become more familiar with the practice, you will be able to do it anytime you choose without having to listen to the guide, as the more you do it, you will naturally develop the instinctive flow of how to shift through each level of awareness on your own. 5 minutes a day of observing your breath and your body rapidly transforms the level of chatter that goes on in your internal dialogue.
The five levels of awareness are:
Disconnection from external distractions and consciously connecting to your internal world.
Observing the physical sensations that you are experiencing in this moment.
Witnessing the natural rhythm of the breath
Witnessing the natural sensation of the breath
Witnessing the complete flow of the breath
Observing and shift and change in the physical sensation that you are now experiencing.
Reconnecting to your external world, grounded in the stillness in the body and peacefulness of mind.
