This guided meditation is from http://www.quietmindcafe.com and is one part of a three-part relaxation and stress management system. Use this sympathetic breathing guided meditation for profound relaxation and stress relief. This breathing technique calms and balances the autonomic nervous system, which drives your fight or flight response.
For a complete relaxation practice use Simple Relaxation to relax the muscles of the body and the somatic nervous system. Use Quiet Mind to restore the experience of calm and balance to the mind and central nervous system. Finally, use Sympathetic Breathing to restore profound relaxation to the heart and autonomic nervous system -- your fight or flight response. Together these three practices form a profound relaxation system that is important for any stress management or stress relief practice.
