    in the 21 day program Alan Gordon has a systematic desensitization meditation where you observe your breath then your pain and keep going back and forth. I find it quite helpful but it is only like 6 min long. Does anyone know of a guided meditation just like this that longer? Thanks

    Hi Dwiegman, and welcome!

    Alan is awesome, isn't he? I can't recommend a longer meditation, but I would say that your goal is to get used to the concept that you can heal yourself - which means learning how to do this meditation on your own, to the point where you don't even need to sit down to it. Eventually, you want to be able to do this in mere seconds, and move on with your day.

    We've been taught to look outside of ourselves for the solutions to our problems. But the true power is within ourselves. All we have to do is learn to love ourselves and trust ourselves so that we know that this is true.
