A Guided Meditation for When the Stock Market Is Dropping
(JL Collins) The market is plunging. You’re starting to panic. You want to hit the “sell” button!
Tune into this relaxing meditation, and let the soothing voice of JL Collins help you embrace this wonderful market cycle.
A few weeks ago I was at Ettington Park, Stratford-upon-Avon enjoying Chautauqua.
One of our guests, Elisabeth, and I were talking and she said…
“The next time the market drops, it sure would be nice to hear your soothing voice telling me everything was going to be OK.”
Then, a moment later, she said…
“Why don’t you record a Guided Meditation?”
Elisabeth is a writer and editor in her own right (she wrote the guest post linked to above), so half kidding I said, “Why don’t you write a script for one.” And she did. It gave me a great framework to start with and so I rewrote and expanded it into about 11 minutes of slow tranquil reading time. She then stepped back in with her editor hat on and we refined it into something ready to record.
And I did.
My daughter, Jessica, has her own YouTube channel and knows about video editing and production. So we sent her the script and recordings. We asked her to edit it for pacing and flow, and to add some soothing music and visuals.
And she did.
Conveniently, as we finished up the last couple of weeks working on this, Mr. Market went a little crazy. The timing for such a guided meditation seemed perfect, so I decided to write this post presenting it to you.
