Get those chakras aligned.
1. The Honest Guys YouTube
The honest guys have some amazing meditations — you could get lost for days in their meditations (and his voice).
The Honest Guys claim their meditations and visualizations are made with one simple purpose: To try to help people. Most of their recordings are uploaded to YouTube and are available for free, so anyone with Internet access can listen to them.
They are first on my list because The Honest Guys are actually the first guided meditations I tried. So I have a special place for them in my heart.
Check out this one for deep sleep and relaxation.

2. Jon Kabat Zinn
Jon Kabat Zinn is one of my favorite all-time mindfulness writers. His books have had a profound impact on my life. In particular, Wherever You Go There You Are, is the first mindfulness book I read. I still open it up and read passages from sections. if you haven’t read it, you must! It’s full of life-changing stuff.
Another Recommended Read by Jon Kabat Zinn is Mindfulness for Beginners: Reclaiming the Present Moment and Your Life(Book & CD))
Okay, I’ve gotten off topic, back guided meditations, on Jon Kabat Zinn’s site he offers a free full body scan meditation. I recommend this because who better to meditate with than the master of mindfulness himself. Having said that, it’s quite a long meditation, so it might not be for beginners or those short on time. But if you can dedicate close to an hour, check it out.
Check out Jon’s full meditation Body Scan Meditation here.

3. Tara Branch
Tara Branch is the author of true refuge and a well-known meditation influencer. She’s the real deal folks!
She has well over 100+ different meditations on her site! Her meditations focus on mindfulness, forgiveness, sleep, and kindness. Most of her meditations are 10 to 40 minutes, so great for beginners or advanced mediators. Many are completely free! She doesn’t use music, just a calm, steady voice.
Nice and simple.
I enjoy this breathing meditation below. It begins with a calming breath to quiet the mind and relax the body. Following this, presence is established with an anchor – the breath, sound or sensation – and you practice “coming back” from distractions, and including whatever direct experience asks for our kind attention. The meditation ends with a short loving kindness prayer.
This is another one I recommend from Tara’s site:
4. The Chopra Centre:
I can’t download the free meditation here, but if you click this link it will take you to the site and you can choose from many free guided meditations. They have 10 to 20 free guided meditations and a ton of paid options as well.
The Chopra center focuses on gratitude, healing, and letting go. Deepak Chopra has partnered with Oprah and offers many paid guided meditations.
I really like the first one on the list ‘healing meditation’

5. Do Yoga With Me
Do Yoga With Me is a great resource! They offer hundreds of completely free video resources including yoga classes and programs along with many free guided meditations.
Do Yoga With Me focuses on mindfulness meditations, meditation for kids, guided visualizations, breathing exercises and even meditations for cancer. I’m sure there is something here you will love.
You can get a taste below.

6. The Guided Meditation Site
I often recommend The Guided Meditation Site and even though many of their audios are paid, they do have some free versions (like below). They offer everything from sleep meditations to curing anxiety, healing, and finding inner peace.
I enjoy the selection, it’s relevant to many common issues people face. The quality is second to none and I personally have many of their meditations.
7. The Mindful Movement
Sara Raymond of The Mindful Movements is helping others live a more mindful life, deepening their awareness and sense of gratitude. She strives to inspire others to live authentically with love and abundance. … The Mindful Movement is happy to provide these meditations and videos free of charge. This is a great youtube channel.
I love this Mindfulness Meditation for being present.

8. Fragrant Heart
Elizabeth Blaikie is the founder of this site, Fragrant Heart, and I love it. It’s nothing fancy but they have a large selection of free guided meditations (around 50) and what I love is that they even have a one-minute meditation for those who want to quickly relax. But the length ranges from 1 to 30 minutes.
The quality is superb. They focus on kindness, sleep, healing and even children. You can choose to listen with or without background music, a cool option.
Check out the one-minute calming meditation here.
I suppose there is a reason over 11 million people have downloaded the Headspace App. It’s incredible. They have a few free meditations (and if you upgrade to a paid version they have 100’s). They offer mindfulness meditations, relaxation, body scan, stress and anxiety and healing (just to name a few).
This app was developed by former Buddhist monk Andy Puddicombe and this app is causing quite a mindfulness craze!
I personally use and love Headspace! The ten-day “Take Ten” series is free to try out, after that, it’s a yearly subscription price. Worth it? You can decide for yourself.
I love the calm app, voted the best meditation app of 2017. Calm focuses on meditation and sleep. To unlock all the benefits of this app there is a monthly or yearly paid subscription fee, but they do have around 5 free guided meditations to see if you like their style.
They offer a wide range of natural background noises which is nice. Take a listen here.
Their style is, as the name suggests, calming meditations. They range in length from 5 to 20 minutes and is available for down on your mobile phone.
