This recording from The Guide Meditation Site contains nothing but the pure sound of a Tibetan singing bowl being repeatedly struck with a soft mallet.
Your mind will become clearer and more calm with each and every bell strike, and as the bells fade into silence, your mind is given the opportunity to experience a very natural state of stillness.
A high bell sound rings out at the conclusion of the meditation.
Guided Mindfulness Meditation
The focus of a guided mindfulness meditation is to draw the meditator's attention towards a mindful perspective. This could be to focus on the breath - which is always an excellent place to start - or to reflections on various insights and teachings on mindfulness.
The meditator's mind is more open when in the deeply relaxed state of meditation, and because the thinking mind is quiet(er) the unconscious mind is more receptive to the focus of the meditation guide can operate more freely and honestly.
I have included several videos on the guided mindfulness meditation page - each with a slightly different approach, for example some use music and some don't, there are male and female voices, and on one video there is no voice.
