Meditative breathing is specific form of meditative that has been found effective in treating symptoms of anxiety (Vukovic, 2003). Meditative breathing is essentially taking a few minutes to stop and focus on the rising and falling on your breath. A person will do the activity for a specified time limit or number of breaths. The goal is for the person to clear his or her mind of all thoughts unrelated to their breathing. Through this process the person is said to be 'centering' themselves and disengaging from stressful distractions such as racing and/or obsessive thoughts (Murphy, 2006).
When I first listen to this video I was a bit skeptical, I have never actually tried relaxation, and meditation by myself. Therefore, it took me a while to get into it, Jason had a calm, relaxed tone of voice which was easy to understand and rhythmic this all helped me get engaged in the guided meditation.

And with that in mind, you start to hear many similarities in the scores as well. John Williams brings back a few of the classic themes from the first movie, such as the opening theme, Luke’s theme, Han and Leia’s theme, Leia’s theme, Rebel Fanfare, and of course the Imperial March. As well as having classic themes, John Williams also brings in some new ones such as Rey’s theme, Kylo Ren’s theme, and the Resistance theme.
