Instead of attending a workshop or virgin therapy session, you may wish to bring about spiritual healing with the help of a guided meditation. For the cost of a CD, you then have access to spiritual wisdom and guidance which it would be difficult to achieve alone. Jacky Newcomb’s Healing with Your Guardian Angel (£11.95, Paradise Music), for example, gives you the tools to feel and experience your angels around you, and ask them for assistance. Guided Meditations Gold by Donna Stewart (29.99. Paradise Music), focuses on incorporating meditations into our everyday lives and also includes practices to help meet specific needs – assertiveness, inner wisdom and instant calm, for example. CDs are particularly helpful, as they can be accessed quickly and used at the time of need, rather than waiting until every Monday evening for a meditation class.
