In a world where peace of mind is sometimes difficult to find, guided meditations are a way to relieve the mind of any stress. The global health threat made people find alternative ways to keep their sanity, given the situation happening all around the world. This is one of the trending types of meditation right now, as it is relaxing yet gives the feeling that you are doing it with someone.
With its name, guided meditation uses audio or a person to lead the meditation process. Aside from using a well-modulated (not a requirement, but highly recommended), it sometimes uses sounds and/or music that mimics nature. It sounds easy to do, right?
As easy as it is to be the person meditating, being an instructor of guided meditation can be a rewarding job. In case you don’t want to quit your day job, it could be the perfect part-time job. This is a fulfilling job that can help relieve people from the stress that they feel. It could also be a great way to earn money! These are the three ways that you can make guided meditation a source of income for you.
As an instructor
If you got what it takes to be a guided meditation instructor, why not get certified? There are yoga academies offering certification once you pass their assessment. Before you go right on enrolling in these academies, make sure to do your research first and be familiar with the practice. It is also important that you should find a credible instructor and institution that will hone your skills. Face-to-face classes to become a certified instructor are preferred, but online classes with digital certificates are also available.
Too shy to become an instructor? Why not try uploading YouTube videos that offer guided meditation. If you have a voice and video editing skills, this could be the best option for you. It is pretty easy. Record your voice in a high-quality microphone or recording device. Next is to find an appropriate video with calming scenery, then adding the voice you have recorded. Lastly, include some nature music to make it more relaxing. You can find some on websites offering royalty-free music like MelodyLoops. After uploading the video, make sure you have the monetization option activated!
This is a mix of the two methods, but 100% safe. It does not need to be face-to-face with the client yet you can still have an effective guided meditation session. This time, instead of creating a video that has your voice recording, you will have to show a video without it. Then, you will be speaking in a microphone through a video call or meeting with your clients. This still requires certification to be a qualified instructor, even it is held online. It becomes a more intimate session and better alternative to YouTube videos.
Helping people find their peace can be an opportunity to earn money. As long as money is secondary while passion for this meditation goes first, you will go a long way in your journey as a guided meditation instructor.
