I did try it. In fact, my mind was racing in the middle of the night with anxiety and panic stricken thoughts (financially). When I listened to the sample, it give me almost instant peace. I would say that on a scale of 1-10 (10 being major anxiety), it settled me to a 2-3 within one listen.I DO believe in Christian meditation as you have so adequately described on your website. I was a pastor for 15 years in a very successful church here in North Texas. I’ve always advocated meditation. I love how you present it. Thank you. I deeply appreciate you and do plan to get some of your CDs.
Much love, Michael
Wow is all I can say. Your Christian Meditations are a God send. Your voice is so calming, so sweet, and so reassuring and the messages and how you present them is definitely a gift God has given you to help people like myself. The last three years of my life have been a struggle and I feel like God led me to your site. I wanted to find something Christ centered to help me with my anxieties and health issues stemming from grief and anxieties. Thank you for answering God’s call and doing his work. Every time I listen to your Christian Meditations I feel like you are my friend helping guide me into God’s presence. I wish I could afford all the Cds now but look forward to when I can. God will bless you in a special way for bringing his word and promises to others and I pray that for you. You are an amazing person.
In Christ, Molly M.
I just signed up for the daily meditation at my office here in the Santa Barbara County Jail. I also receive it at home, which I use personally, and find most effective. I began giving it to the inmates! It is helping tremendously Rhonda, and I want to thank you very much for your ministry! I would love to receive your messages here at the jail, as I can copy them to pass out. You are touching hundreds of lives. (we have 900 inmates) Please keep it up, and thank you again so very much. God bless you mightily!

I have been listening to your meditations for a month or so now and want you to know that your work here is an answer to prayer. I’ve struggled with depression for several years and nothing has helped me overcome it, but as a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. I knew in my heart that there was an answer to my problem. I also knew that the answer would be found in His Word…somewhere, somehow. The last several years I’ve been pressing in to God in prayer, and have made progress with the depression, but it still hadn’t been dealt with completely. Three months ago something happened that sent me spiraling downward to a depth of grief I’d never known before. I didn”t think anything could bring me out of that dark place. One night I continued to cry out to God for help. One morning I felt compelled to sit down in front of my computer and do a search for Christian Meditations (something I’d never heard of before) and was led to your website. Over the course of a couple of days I studied your information, and after praying about it I decided to become a full member. I thank my God, every time I think of you. God’s Word, through your Meditations and Affirmations, has brought life and light back to my soul. While the grief remains and difficulty rages around me, I know I can surround myself with God’s Word by playing your recordings and come away filled with His peace, comforted. Thank you so much for your faithfulness. I pray that God will continue to bless you, as you\’ve been a blessing to others.
“I Had No Pain Whatsoever Until the Baby Was Born!”
“They are a Blessing Indeed”
My name is Dr. Deni Weber and I am a Christian psychologist. I ran across your website a while back and ordered the first 4 Cd Set you were offering at the time. I don’t remember exactly how long I have had them … I’d say well over a year – but I’m not sure. I use them routinely. I appreciate the work you had put into these messages as finding biblically based, Christian meditation Cd’s was difficult. I am a firm believer in meditation and found that yours are by far the best I have heard and used. I love to start my day with the morning meditation, and find the Cd’s employ many of the relaxation techniques you encounter in therapy. My favorite is the one about the Shunnamite woman. “All is well”. I have listened to that while my husband underwent cancer treatment, during numerous illnesses and have always felt blessed, relaxed, and able to “deal” with the current crisis.
I have bought Cd’s for my parents, and often recommend them to hurting folks who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and in particular chronic pain. I get a positive response from everyone who has used them! They are a blessing indeed – as are the Christian Meditator emails and the website. Thanks, Rhonda!

“It (Christian meditation) Has Changed Our Life!”
Although I was a Christian for 22 years, the intimacy was never there until I started
meditating two years ago. I thought or was led to believe that meditation was only for the Eastern culture. Christian were not suppose to meditate because other spirits lurking in the spiritual realm would somehow attack me, or invade my life.
One morning during an early devotion I found Psalms 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God,” naive of how many times the Bible mentions the word meditate. I researched the word meditate and found that all I had to do was to quiet my mind and control my thoughts. I thought it was easy, but found it to be one of the hardest discipline I had to accomplish. I shared this with my husband and our Bible group, and we all started seeking the Lord for guidance. Soon we found ourselves prostrated before His presence. We knew we were on to a true meaning of seeking Him alone, not through men. We continued to research on the Internet for Christian meditation, but not much found.
One day, after a year we found this website www.thechristianmediator.com and we order the CDs. This was confirmation to us, that we were not alone in being led the Holy Spirit. What a tremendous blessing these CDs have been to our group. This experience has given us a depth of God’s presence that we have never had in 22 years of being Christians. We are living in complete faith allowing Him to guide us, and have seen his provision in every area of our life. Our relationship with the creator has given us peace knowing that He is in control not men and that his love is for those who seek Him earnestly, unconditionally, and at all times. We practice this discipline every morning & and once a week corporately. We are truly living the lifestyle that Jesus had and gave to his disciples; he sought that Father alone. It has changed our life!

“I Felt More Calm After Using the Meditation Cd’s”
From my earliest childhood the only way felt I could survive in my home was to hide my feelings,suppress my emotions, and deny myself to keep peace in the house. In time I grew into a total people pleaser and was miserable. My every waking moment was devoted to making sure those closest to me were happy at any cost.
I had lost myself and had no real identity. I was in constant emotional pain. I had no
self-respect and no respect of any other kind. By the time I was in my forties, I was
completely exhausted with myself, my life, and wanted to be free of this tremendous burden, but by that time the stronghold was firmly set. My family life began to unravel, which aside from carnal walk with CHRIST, was the only thing holding me together. My constant negative thinking began to gravitate to a darker side. The negative thoughts were coming uncontrollably and I was stressed to the max. I noticed people who meditated seemed to be relaxed and confident. I wanted what they had but not at the expense of my faith in JESUS.
I began looking on-line to see if a thing called Christian Meditation even existed. That is how I found Rhonda Jones’ website. After just using the meditation Cd’s once, I felt so calm and relaxed that I shared these wonderful Cd’s with my family and have seen a remarkable change in our home. I am truly grateful to GOD and Rhonda for helping to break through the enemy’s stronghold and setting my mind free. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with constant negative thoughts.

“Meditation and Relaxation Has Helped Me to Keep my Pain Levels Under Control”
I suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, IBS, and asthma, all of which get much worse during times of stress. I developed an interest in Christian meditation and guided imagery after working with a wonderful Christian psychologist several years ago who used hypnotherapy with Christian imagery to help me learn to cope with stress and pain.
He taped our sessions so I could listen to them at home. He gave me my life back! I then learned to do my own meditation by putting on a CD of the ocean and slow, tranquil music and doing my deep breathing with that. I would visualize myself on a beach with Christ over the waves with his arms outstretched to me. I would breathe in his healing love and breathe
out all stress and worry. But after awhile, I got bored with doing the same thing over and over and wanted some variety.
I began searching for Christian guided meditation and could find almost nothing online or in the stores till I happened upon one of Rhonda’s CDs at Amazon.com. I purchased the CD on stress and toxic emotions. I loved the imagery in it and it lowered my stress levels which
helped lower my pain levels. I also love the one on the morning meditation with all the positive reinforcements. I have a good one by Sue Jones who is also a fibromyalgia sufferer that I use as well. And I have one by a sleep doctor that used guided relaxation of muscles and counting to 10 over and over to focus the breath which is also very good.
Guided imagery, meditation, and relaxation have helped me to keep my pain levels under control,and I now almost never take anything for pain. Stress has such a negative effect on the body physically and emotionally and meditation has been proven by research to lower blood pressure and pain levels as well as help with depression. I am so thrilled to find Rhonda’s site so I can get a variety of Christian meditations because those meditations that involve my faith are even more effective for me.
I have been so blessed by the CDs. It is clear to see that they carry such a great annointing to accomplish the purpose intended by God and you. I TRULY experienced insuppressible peace while listening to the CDs. I plan to listen until I have completely saturated my heart, mind and spirit with the essence of the training and inspiration you have integrated into these beautiful CDs so that I can apply it to every day living. Thanks for being obedient to God and using your gifts to bless me and so many others. May God richly bless you in every area of your life for all that you do in His name.
I am inspired to follow-up with this brief letter regarding receiving your Christian Meditation and Relaxation CDs, Volumes One and Four. Each CD has become an integral part of my morning and daily meditation. My meditation habits; I strive to meditate three times daily. For this releases built up energy and allow me to manifest higher power in my daily living.Rhonda, I have come to love the calmness of your voice combined with the power of the scriptures and positive words that you offer on the CD. You have been blessed and your CDs are a blessing to the Universe. Thank you for these gifts that are bringing all that you and the meditator seek and desire. I look forward to the incredible power your Christian Meditation and Relaxation CDs will continue to bring to the world.
With Joy, Grace and Gratitude,Valder Beebe, CEO and Host Valder Beebe Show(www.valderbeebeshow.com)
I Love Your CDs! I recently purchased you CD, Christian Meditation and Relaxation Volume 3 on Amazon.com and it is just amazing!…I have lived with fibromyalgia for 12 years, since the sudden unexpected death of my then 36 year old brother…;I have no doubt that God led me to your wonderful CD. Now each evening before I work on my pain journal, I listen to your session on toxic emotions and release it all to God… Sometimes I listen to the entire CD in bed which helps me sleep better. I still have to take medications to sleep due to having a sleep disorder related to my fibro, but I am hopeful that someday I will be able to sleep just with your CDs! Please keep those CDs coming because it is so hard to find Christian meditation CDs and they are in high demand by we Christians who know the value of meditating and deep breathing for relieving stress, but are afraid of many of the meditations out there not based on Christian faith. May God bless your ministry with success and may He guide others to your CDs and help us get the word out to other Christians.
When I first learned about the Christian Meditation series, I was very excited! Since I can remember, I have been interested in ways to slow my mind and body down both for relaxation and to better hear what God may be trying to tell me. I have shyed away from worldly meditation, believing it dangerous to open yourself up without being mindful about what you may be allowing in to your spirit. The Christian Meditation series addresses this concern by directing your attention to God and showing you how to keep it there. Though I was excited about the series initially, I did not know how much it would really benefit me. For several years I have been practicing extended quiet times with God, in which I deliberately quiet myself and wait on the Lord. I was not sure how much the meditations would add to that. However, after I listened to the first track, I was astounded. Christian Meditation is a wonderful way to provide structure to the initial minutes in my time with God. Entering in to the state of mind required to receive the most in my times with the Lord can be one of the most challenging parts. It can be difficult to truly set aside all of the distractions or other items on my agenda. Sometimes I would be alarmed to find myself going through the motions during my quiet time, without reaping the benefits of really connecting with God. Christian Meditation is a way to usher us into the time of utter refreshment that God longs to bestow upon us when we meet with Him. With the stresses of modern life, many of us try everything we can think of to relax ourselves. I went to a Day Spa for my birthday a few years ago. Though that was a nice treat, I can honestly say that I felt far more relaxed and uplifted listening to this CD than I did that day. How can something primarily focused on relaxing the body compete with God’s word, which refreshes mind, body and spirit with the nutrients that we really long for? I strongly support the producer’s recommendation that you linger and wait on God after the meditation track ends, even if only for a few minutes. It will not be long before you realize that you spend more time than you think on expendable things (TV, magazines, telephone). You will discover that spending more of it with the Lord will pay dividends into not only your own wellbeing, but the wellbeing of all of those in your life. Sometimes we neglect caring for ourselves spiritually, thinking that we are too busing taking care of others. But we will not be able to care for anyone properly if we do not center ourselves(and stay centered) on the Lord. When you listen to the meditation, be sure that you are in an environment that fully supports meditation! This is absolutely key to receiving the maximum benefit from the Christian Meditation series. Go somewhere quiet where you can close a door and not be disturbed. Some people may have to be creative. I have a special sign that I only use during my time with God. My family knows that is the one time that I should not be disturbed. Depending on your family, you may have to get up earlier or stay up a little later than everyone else to make sure you have a quiet space all to yourself. Listen in your back yard with headphones or in your car in the parking lot of a local park. Create the space you need. You will be amazed by the results. The Christian Meditation series is not miraculous, but God’s word is. The series is a tool to help structure what should be the absolute most important part of your day, so that you receive what you need from God to really thrive in all that you do.
Most dramatically, it helps me fall asleep, by getting my mind off of all the things I worry about and helps me to rest in God! I have had trouble sleeping for several years now, even trying sleeping aids, which ultimately made it worse (with their side effects and the deceitful nature of pharmaceutical. Listening to the CD is just like taking a sleeping pill-only better! I know tons of people have trouble sleeping because they worry too much or don’t leave enough time in the day to address their issues with God. So when they lay down to sleep, all of that unaddressed stuff rushes in at them.
I cannot find the words to praise the LORD for you and what he has put in your heart. Thank you for being obedient to the lord’s calling in your life. I’m sure he is impacting many lives through you. The Christian Meditations have helped me quiet my mind and be STILL before the LORD. There’s still a lot the Lord has to change in me personally, but spending time in his presence and his word has changed my life completely.
I PLAYED CD 4 TODAY, IT WAS AWESOME. I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THE LORD HAS BEEN DEALING WITH US IN MEDITATION FOR A YEAR. WE HAVE A GROUP HERE IN MIAMI THAT MEET EVERY TUESDAY JUST SEEKING HIS PRESENCE. WE’VE;VE ALL ORDERED YOUR CD, THAT MY HUSBAND ENRIQUE FIRST FOUND YOUR WEBSITE. WE ALL HEAR THEM. WE APPRECIATE YOUR OBEDIENCE AND HARD WORK. MAY THE LORD CONTINUE TO PROSPER YOU IN ALL HE HAS FOR YOU! THANK YOU, AGAIN.
I love the meditation Cd’s, they have helped me focus more on the Lord’s voice and have helped me to relax more and give Him the best of me. Thank you for your obedience in the Lord’s kingdom.
I gained an incredible rest of my mind, obtained inner peace, and pay attention to what I am thinking of. I live less attached to the negativity of the world and find my life more at one with God and feel the center of being awakened. The spiritual verses are powerful in audio because since I hear the CD over and over, the verses remain in my mind and I find myself thinking of the word more than ever before.
I just started a women’s bible study for the summer. We are doing the book AT HIS FEET. We have been meeting at the beach normally, but 2 weeks ago it was raining so we met at my house. I wanted to take that opportunity to let them listen to your tape. We listened to Morning Devotion. One woman, Holly, who moved down here a year ago from Rhode Island, kicking and screaming suddenly began to sob. One of the verses spoke volumes to her and opened a flood gate of both tears and emotion. She felt she needed to leave and get alone with God, which I encouraged her to do. In speaking to her the other day she told me God brought much healing as a result of that brokenness. The Word is powerful. Thanks for simply speaking it.
The CD has been very helpful… Because I’m on disability due to chronic pain I experience depression, anxiety, anger, grief, isolation and low self-esteem. I know that God’s Word has the answer to each of these problems. I haven’t started journaling yet but I know that it will help me internalize these answers. Thanks also for convicting me…. I need to make bible study more of a priority in my life. I love the deep breathing, relaxation and scripture verses that you use. Just a few objections…. In Controlling Your Thoughts: the reaching higher levels of God-consciousness sounds New Age. In Morning Devotion: I agree with most of what you say about spiritual warfare but I don’t agree that believers are given authority in this life to bind evil spirits or that it’s even necessary. Despite these differences I plan to order more Volumes in the series. Thanks so much!
I really have enjoyed the CD I received. Hope your business prospers. I enjoyed the CD a lot.
“God is using you greatly in this house! We love to start the day with Morning Devotion…We just love the way you set us out to our days by praying God’s protection, promises, and casting out all evil from around us in the mighty name of Jesus…I am an office manager in a church and I find I pray the things in your devotion for our Pastors on my way to work. Thank you for all you have done in our lives. God has used your meditations in so many ways here.
“I purchased one of your meditation CDs and it is phenomenal. Praise God for your vision for this is something that we don’t have as Christians.
“I use the meditation CDs to relax after a full, busy day before or at bedtime. I have used the CDs for about 3 weeks now and find I sleep better after listening…I am convinced the Christian meditation CDs are a God-send for me.”
“I thank God that I came across your webiste for Christian meditation and affirmations. I have used your meditation and affirmations for about a month and have seen a dramatic difference in my thought patterns and levels of stress. Before I came across your meditations and affirmations I found myself unable to change those self-defeating thoughts and attitudes that kept me stressed out. I have enjoyed the affirmations so much that I keep one in each of my cars. Thank you so much!
“I feel as if your CDs are “standing in the gap” for me as I feel not quite able to read the scriptures myself somedays. Here it is for me, filling my mind with positive thoughts and God promises…Your voice is comforting to me.
“I started listening to volume #1 and it has been a real blessing and just what I needed at this time in my life.
I have listened to your tape and found it very relaxing. This is only my second time I have been able to hear such relaxing tapes. Seeing I am new at this kind of meditation I hope to continue enjoying this kind of Christianity. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to hear, and being able to relax as I have been very up tight of late
God Bless and take care.
The Christian meditations have been wonderful. They help me slow down enough to fully let God in, and I am able to stay more centered and focused throughout my days. I have been sharing them with a prayer group at my children’s school, and after a long period of stagnation, we have had 7 new visitors by word of mouth because they are enjoying this type of prayer so much. Even the children in the classroom like the meditations during rest time and have requested them instead of their usual classical music. I can say the work you have done has blessed my life, and blessed those whom with I share it. Thank you for being one of the pioneers in bringing this type of prayer to others through your outreach.
Peace be with you,
Liz Greenwell, Associate Pastor, Wellspring United Methodist Church
Judy and I are looking to draw closer to the Lord. We are Spirit filled Christians and just want a closer walk with Him. She is the one who found your site and recommended that I join. I love the series and have let my wife use your links to view each part. I would love to have the series on my ipod to listen to. We both want to dig deeper into Christian meditation.
David in Indiana
I’m listening to it right now, WOW! the approach with the tone of her voice is automatically relaxing and I love the sound of the background. Just heard a Bible verse, yes without a doubt I like it very much – thank you.
Thank you! I have so enjoyed the 18 weeks with Christian Meditator. For me, personally,
I had done some meditation before this series, but have had a re-awakening to the necessity of it. I am 48 years old and have 4 children who are all benefiting from my
receiving these 18 weeks. I have enjoyed the free meditation music as well, Rhonda; thank you.
You have been a blessing!
Good evening out here in Switzerland. I started with the first part of your Christian Meditation and I feel so much relaxed. I would like to thank God for sending you to me.
I will tell you my story after sometime. Again, I thank you and God bless a thousand-fold.
Your voice is so relaxing! I am keeping this particular mp3 player just for all your meditations! I usually listen all night long when I am sleeping to some form of God’s Word…feeding my spirit… I will get another mp3 for the sermons/music I listen to.
Yes I have listened to your recording and found it to be extremely beneficial and even life saving. By the grace of God, you have given me the opportunity to better handle my restless mind and have made a complete world of difference in life. Thank you so much and may God Bless you always for what you are doing for him…
God Bless, Tyrone
I think the series is great. It really gave an indepth meaning/definition to Christian Meditation. I believe that when people view the series they will see that it is scriptural to meditate. This is good. I am looking forward to what other revelations that the Lord will bring me through this. God Bless You.
Good evening, your video series are informative and has given me a deeper insight into meditating. I am new to meditating and I am glad to find information on Christian meditating. Your positive affirmations are also a Godsend. My 10yr old daughter recently went through an ordeal and repeating the positive affirmations helped her face her fears. Keep up the good work!! God Bless you and your family.
Thank you so much, I listen to it every night before I go to bed. I sleep very well. God has given me the knowledge now of how to control my thoughts. Thank you God and thank you Rhonda.
I am listening to the meditation once in the morning and once in the evening. It has been like a personal trip to the emergency room for me.
Meditation is a habit I have practiced for a long time. However lately I have been unable to focus or even pray. My husband has end stage kidney failure, heart failure, Valley fever, MRSA, and diabetes and is a real estate broker. I plan to order some of your CD’s I just haven’t decided one one yet. I am so thankful I searched on line for Christian Meditation and found your web site. God Bless You.
