This free version of the Sleep Easily Meditation app for iPhone and iPad includes nearly 27 minutes of carefully chosen, relaxing background music as Shazzie, the creator of the app for relaxation, calmly talks the meditator through a relaxation process.
As the intention of this sleeping aid app is to send you into a meditative state, you have the option to set the recording on a loop. This intensely relaxing application works well for those who buy into the benefits of meditation and relaxation.
For those experiencing this type of app for meditation for the first time, Shazzie is a professional when it comes to introducing you to the practice and making you feel informed and comfortable.
This app consists of a single recording with the option to loop the recording if you wish. The background music is calm and euphoric, enticing listeners to drift off into a meditative state without distractions. Shazzie's soothing voice layered over the music is at first instructive.
She covers the necessary topics of posture and advises users against listening to the recording during high-risk situations like driving.
After the logistics are covered, Shazzie coaches you into a deep, relaxed state and eventually meditation. She reminds you that you have the power to snap out of the meditative state at any time and assures you the whole process is very safe.
For almost 27 minutes, Shazzie will take you to warm, relaxing, safe environments and ultimately, a deep, wholly relaxing sleep. Just don't forget to set the built in wake-up alarm before you start!
