Jhana meditation is part of the tradition of samatha, meaning calm, tranquility or relaxation. You will find the guided meditations excellent for relaxation meditation purposes.
To be mindful, Sublime takes you through the four pre-classical foundations of mindfulness.
The First Foundation is mindfulness of body. Get in touch with your body with the body sweep guided meditations contained within the app, then fill your body with joy and pleasure in First Jhana. As part of the meditation you will find that each part of the body, and the whole body becomes calm. Many users find the First Foundation of mindfulness meditation helpful for relaxation and going to sleep at night too.
The Second Foundation is mindfulness of sensation. This is the level of reality at which experiences are felt. Get in touch with the now; be mindful, and strengthen your perception of what is pleasant, unpleasant or neutral. The key to unlocking a happier life is noticing what makes you happy and what does not; the guided meditation mindfulness exercises will help.
The Third Foundation is mindfulness of state of mind. This is overall state of mind, or emotional state. The app will help you develop a wide vocabulary of mental states. When one is being mindful of state of mind, then one can start to see how your daily experiences, and how you react to them, contribute to it. From there one can start to unwind.
The Fourth Foundation is mindfulness of thought. As your discernment and mindfulness skill increases through mindfulness exercise, you start to see how it is less what happens to you, and more what you think about what happens, that determines your happiness. From here one can start to discard unhelpful thoughts, purely on the grounds that they are unhelpful.
The Five Hindrances are greed, anger & ill will, lethargy, anxiety & worry, and uncertainty and doubt. All unpleasant states of mind are compounds of these basic five. The app teaches you to counter these, one by one, to leave your mind free from hindrances. Your mindfulness exercises then allow you to note the arising of each in daily life. When swiftly countered with the ways the guided meditation will show you, you can experience release from these at any time.
With an unhindered mind our guided meditations then build the transcendent bliss of First Jhana, to make you feel, in a word, Sublime.
