Some of the guided meditations have been on YouTube for over
a year. After over 400,000 plays with feedback of
appreciation, we are releasing all of the
meditations on CD for your benefit and convenience.
Here is some of the feedback.
obfsteve - Jim, Deceptively simple but profound. I started
with this one and then found others and your website,
Meditation Vacations. I found the information there
interesting, valuable, and generously given. I've told many
friends of this video. I'll let them discover more of your work
from here, as I did, if they choose. I'll not try to force feed
them, although I did them a heads up for this as starting
point. I've been around the block with meditation
stuff, and this is just the best!
Timgfan - Whenever I do this meditation, I have tears
streaming down my face. I weep with the beauty of the
potential that this feeling could bring love to the
world. I imagine people I have difficulty tolerating
(like George W) doing this or being surrounded by this love (I
imagine a mother's love) and I just convert it to "God's" love.
It's the most powerful organic thing in the world.
djm6402 - voila! /// INSTANT RELIEF
Peaches111A - ditto...i feel sooooo content...i think i'm
gonna do this during math class just before i test. then i
won't need to worry about flunking ^^
FaceVentura - i am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oo relaxed
that was seriously amazing
GreggaryPeccary - Wow, that was the most effective
meditation I`ve ever had!!! You sink into the Self
mayasem - Very good meditation!! Thanks!!
dreams2manifest - Wow that was amazing! Thanks! You know it
made me think about quantom machanics when you said the word
observing...I remembered them saying something about when a
particle is observed...it changes. Thanks!
jenandjuice22 - This was the best part of my
day! Thank you!
mayasem - This feels good!! thx for sharing this.
unis2006 - wow this was great...I dont meditate but
it made me feel so peaceful.
peacepalace - Thanks for the meditation, very simple and
relaxing. Everything including our body is just the way it is.
That's all their is to know. :-)
akintock - Thank You very much!!! it initiated my
all inner spiritual levels.
Mawachi - Thank you. That took off a lot of my
grantas1983 - thank you very much, it helps me
megalosauru - great, we observe our inner soul
clearviewmind - Great. On observing my outer
sourroundings i began to see clearer that everything is mere
imputation of mind - The external things of my room are'nt
actually external, but an internal reflection of mind
experienced through the 5 senses.
rappersdelyte - great. thanks.
JUSTRELAXANENJOY - ...it´s soo bloody simple - but IT
It helps to get into the PRESENCE of
HERE&NOW - that SILENT AWARENESS - the natural
state of "our" (better "THE") true SELF ! Thank you for that
gift, Jim !
kaaliifire - ym observation of u tube for a perfect
obseving guided meditation has led me here... and what a
perfection i have found... thank u... im made a plan to
practice this type of LIVING 8by just observing) for one
months... its 3rd or 4th day and - wow! what an
adventure into simplicity... and creativity is just
bursting - although i have no feeling that im creating
anything... just allowing whatever comes... what a relief!
yogikanna - i agree, just observe - dont run away from
the thoughts or feeling, don't encourage them, don't resist
them, don't condemn them, just observe them....and you will
notice that they will slow down and what is left is your pure,
joyful and peaceful self.
EliaDempsey - This was really helpful. Thank you.
spiritsworld - I absolutely in bliss
from listening to this. Observation and awareness is an
unbelievable form of self centralization. Beautiful..no
snikouti - simple and very effective... brings you to
the here and now with minimum efforts. thank
blcute - wow thank you this was wonderfulllll
AussiSiren - Wonderful! Passing along our
connectedness through love and eternal blessings. The
Corroboree Love Team
blacksavengers8 - that felt really good. thank you
homousios - If I am not mistaken, Buddha in the
Anapanasati Sutta, also used very repetetive phrases. Perhapsit
it is to emphasise "Oberving yourself" as crucial. This was
very helpful 6to me thanks
thepowerofnow -very good exercise. Keeps us align to
the self. Do u think that the end of a path cand be done with
tehnics or exercises or is just spontanious ? Every enlight man
or woman ive seen they say the same "you dont have to look
anywere else" excuse my english thx
JimKitzmiller - The end of the path is total surrender to
AnnaIsabella90 - GREAT!! thanks.. I love this, more
Username880 - very relaxing. I have a question though:
isn't it incorrect to say there are two selves? one self can be
and observe itself at once. its called self-awareness no?
JimKitzmiller - The Ultimate Truth is that there is only
the Self. Before we become enlightened, there is the illusion
of many identities (selves). Each self is encapsulated
consciousness with a set of beliefs, emotions, etc. We could
typically be one identity while resisting an opposing identity
that we're subconsciously creating. Observer meditations
unravel all that stuff. We get more freedom, more life energy,
and get closer to our true Self.
montgonova - i feel so relaxed right
now thanks jimkitzmiller
onlyinternet - should we close are eyes?
JimKitzmiller - We can do these meditations with eyes
closed or eyes open. Either way is fine.
adocranic - have you ever tried psychedelics?
JimKitzmiller - I have never done psychedelics. However, I have
helped people recover from the harmful side effects.
Saeorge -Thank you, I love guided meditation :D
tonfakid11 - good calming meditation
superwoofer38 - thanks for sharing,it will be a big
help for those who likes meditation.
haldor72 - This is great. No secret ceremonies
or allegiance to Gurus. Cults keep meditation
techniques secret so that the Guru maintains power over the
followers. These techniques in this age should be freely
available to all.
christopherc731 -Wow. I really enjoyed that. I am
fairly new to meditation. Is it weird that I felt joy, and
almost like laughing when I was done? Thanks
captainsjam001 - This is great, very calming ,
tracktionmonkey - Appreciated Jim! Your voice
relaxes & helps to disengage. With love.
braindeadones - thank you for trying to make human
eaton1012 - Wow, I never seen things that way. Thank
Doberking - Sound meditation principles.
The idea of focusing on the self, breathing etc... is an
ancient meditation technique. It is about letting go of
damaging thoughts and just 'being'.
Talexa66 - Thanks. I enjoyed the meditation very much as
well as the website listed in the about this video. Thanks
buzzzcreator - This is weird, I just atral travelled to a
friends place whilst listening to this. I saw him on his lounge
sending a text message and I said to myself when I was next to
him sending the message, I bet I will receive that message in
the next minute. Low and behold a damn text message came though
to me from him. Saying that he's a bit down and needs to sort
some things out. Wow...powerful!
catila22 - This is great before Yoga
practice and breathing exercices! Thank you
samann95014 - very simple & yet most effective
meditation vid on youtube. thanks!!
NICKIADCOCK74YAHOO - never tried anything like this but
i am amazed i feel so good...im bipolar and i
believe this may just help me more than medication...i feel
great and i am going to do this everyday...hope i can stick to
metedude2 -awesome video! thanks :)
ram70 - I never felt so good in my life-everything
in life pales in comparison to how i felt after meditating
along with this video-thanks for making this world a better
66flamer -thank you. a bow to your gift of this video.
Wa1lers - good stuff, thank you
Dordrius - amazing stuff.
Krees21 - That was great, thanks!
garuts3975 - great
didikh - I listen to your video maybe a month ago and time
to time i listen to it again, it is a great tool to make
méditation, and to observe ourself and breathing and points who
attract our attention in our body it is a great way to heal
ourself..thank you very much for that sharing
iteaca - very good!thx
brianvoss - This is great - thank you for this. It reminds
me of what the? French philosopher Pascal said: "all of
humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in
a room alone".
rayunseitig -This worked pretty good for me the last several
days. I observed myself, without making any judgments at all.
Just watching. Later I played it back mentally, and noticed how
offended I was by a pushy person, and how angry, and resentful
I was about another thought I had. Hmmm Maybe next time I will
respond differently. I think this video touched on some good
chex569 -this is good, i have accelerated thinking when i
start observing they decreased a lot and i realized how tense i
blazeryin - I felt great inner peace when I
observed myself, I could feel all the tension in my body and
then felt it being released slowly the longer I remained still
the more release.
davoisakoollord -ive been doing different forms of
meditation for a couple of months now. i think this is
the best ive done. it really brought me out of my body
ill be be doing this again tomorrow (Y)
baronkinder -Thank you Jim, that was beautiful! Namaste,
much love and grateful thoughts go your way! "Be still and know
I am god"
12233445566abc -I've found this video surprisingly
powerful..in drawing me into a meditative
state..however, when asked to "observe myself" it's not obvious
to me what that means..so I feel I can't follow the
instructions...how do I observe "my self" , I am not really
sure...it doesn't come to me..
JimKitzmiller -You're getting to a meditative state, so there
is a definite benefit. You can simply follow what you can,
e.g., observe the breathing, observe the body, etc. One of our
biggest challenges is to let go of thinking, even for just a
short time. This meditation will help you with that in a big
way. We can wonder if we're doing things right. We are. We can
let go of needing to be perfect. Please keep at it and let me
know how it goes.
candi2059 - great guide for beginners
Nisargp - This video is excellent. I am a beginner in
meditation and even though I'm Hindu, when i try to concentrate
on "Ohm" I cannot fully concentrate because of much other
thoughts but with this method I was able to easily
susansp2 - WOW....What a fantastic feeling!! You have an
perfect voice!! Thank you for the peace in my mind and
body. My best thoughts for you and the rest of the

Handling Suppression and Judgement
junglb1 - Thankyou
impatient1 - Loved it. Very helpful.
GreggaryPeccary - The safe way to
enlightenment!! Thx alot for the vids
xMoonlightNinjax -thank you alot
catlinmorgan - Thank you This can be difficult if you are
being attacked in the moment and the other person sending hate
or hostility. If you are kind sometimes people see that as a
weekness and then we feel the need to protect ourselves.
I will practice this feeling love towards the whole
situation. Thank you
tsampa1 - thank you for this helpful meditation guided
ctohme - good stuff.
Ladyhawkwright - Very good one for bad
relationships! Thanks for sharing!

12vision55 - Thank you, I just have post few of my pictures,
but I must confess your word is much more powerful -
you help to sense the space filled with God's love
literally - while listening to your relaxing
meditation I sense not only my own longing and God's love but
your voice too and that comes as if the proof and the necessary
requirement - the spirit cant blossom in solitude- She demands
the sharing, Your voice lifts up me into the hug of all who
praise God and enjoy the refreshing peace. Thank you
catlinmorgan - Thank you Jim, so relaxing, so peacefull ,
everything feels gentle, soft and filled with Gods
Love. such a sweet feeling.
SpiritSouldier - Great work Jim, simple eternal truth,
gracefully spoken, what an asset to mankind you are. 'Om Namo
xiaoxiao87 - made me sleepy. Is that to be expected?
JimKitzmiller - That happens sometimes. You might be working
through some resistances.
xiaoxiao87 - thanks. that comment definitely raised my morale,
but then is there something i'm doing wrong?
JimKitzmiller - You're doing fine. There have been times when
I've dozed off during a guided meditation. Then I'd wake up in
a "body asleep - mind awake state". You can
hang out in that state if you like or do more meditating and
get powerful benefits. You might also do the "Observing Your
self" meditation or others. It's all good. And maybe you could
benefit from the sleep.
xiaoxiao87 - now that you mention it I haven't slept that well
in a midday nap for a long time. or nighttime sleep for that
JimKitzmiller - Enjoy the snooze :-)
