Writers, computer users, and anyone whose body and mind slip into stress needs to try this. People with backaches, headaches, jaw and repetitive movement issues, as well as sleep problems love it. For many people, relaxation is the most needed and often the most difficult skill to learn. Here’s a proven method to teach anyone to recognize tension–and let it go.
Amber’s voice provides cues for breathing, tensing, releasing, and witnessing your body, guiding you every step to release tension. Although not hypnosis, you may experience a dreamlike state disconnected from your mind and body. In this state creative answers and ideas emerge more easily.
Additional Benefits for Writers
• Teaches techniques to relax the body
• Reminds you to breathe and pay attention to your body
• Silences the internal critic
• Sets intention and allows your unconscious creativity to surface
“Amber’s hand meditation CD gives me a convenient, familiar place to start; her soft voice lulls me gently and methodically into serenity.”
“Amber’s calm and reassuring voice is guaranteed to grab the wildest of minds and lead them to equanimity.”
“If you need to stimulate creativity, wind your mind down into restful sleep, or even relax a hand cramped by pen or keyboard, Amber is the writing friend you’ve dreamed of.”
Relaxing the Writer Hand Meditation audio is a 10-minute concentration practice and a shortcut to a mini-meditative state. Because they possess some of the densest nerve ending and richest source of tactile feedback in the body, hands are ideal for this practice and can transmit calm to the entire body.
Relaxing the Writer Hand Meditation can relax you in 10 minutes without the need to leave your desk. Once you have developed that skill, you can create the feeling anywhere.
This is the same as the 10 minute concentration practice for writers. Musicians have hand issues, too (and like to feel special.)
Relaxation One Breath at a Time is basically the same as Relaxing the Writer Relaxation. Confused? It’s an earlier version with the same two tracks for relaxing anytime and for relaxing to fall asleep. So, it’s a better choice for non-writers or for a gift for a non-writer. Same not- woo-woo techniques.
