They are generally narrated in the form of a story, instruction, imagery. They are usually sound files accessible on multiple platforms. Guided meditation uses your senses to help you focus and you follow directions on how to breathe to help relax your muscles and attain inner peace. Passage meditation is similar but instead, you focus on a piece of written work to help focus.
2. Brain wave entrainment:

3. Concentrative meditation:
In this kind of meditation, you focus on an object, image, thing or mantra to block out any distracting thoughts. In the case of a mantra, choose a saying that helps calm you and you may choose to say it out loud or in whispers. Feeling and keeping your breathing in control while focusing will also help enhance your meditative state.
4. Mindfulness meditation:
Mindfulness meditation is all about focusing on the present moment. It enables you to recognize and change your surroundings and its occurrences. You allow your emotions and thoughts to run through your mind but don’t allow them to cloud your meditation. You begin to forget the past and don’t dwell in the future and attempt to live in “THE NOW” by practising this form of meditation. You focus more on yourself and your well-being. Mindfulness meditation is the best self-love form of meditation.
