Please do enjoy this review and don’t forget to add any questions/thoughts /comments below when you are done :))
So, Just what is the Mindful Christian channel about??
According to my research, the Mindful Christian channel appears to be about providing resources online to combine aspects of the christian faith with mindfulness and meditation techniques. Google search the aforementioned phrase and you will probably find all sorts of opinions on whether Christianity and meditation should be studied together at all. From my experience, the christian faith can be like a political party in that the individual beliefs of each denomination can be as different as the left,centre and right of a political party.There is enough controversy in that sentence alone to write at least one or more blogs on that topic itself. Delve more into this topic in google and you will soon find all of the “for and against” around this topic.At this point I will be just sticking to the review of this channel and will be leaving it at that.
Where can I find this channel??
This channel can be found at the following link here.
Pros of this channel.
The good things I found in this channel are:
- The available videos are just the right size for those who might be new to mindfulness and meditation and those that don’t have a lot of spare time to squeeze in their “reflection time” in. Ranging in size from 7-20 minutes, these are ideal to get in and get out and get on with your day.
- I personally love how the channel combines the christian faith with mindfulness and meditation. My reasons for this are I hold these two aspects close to my heart as meditation and mindfulness has helped to turn my life around in the last two years and I really value my relationship with God via my christian faith and hence I get to spend time with God whilst using these resources.
- It’s free!!! To the creator of this free channel, all I can say is a big thank you and well done on the work created herein so far !
- All videos are in a “guided” meditation format in that a voice talks you through the various steps of each session. A big help to beginners and experienced alike in this area!!
- This resource is portable, as long as you have a smartphone, network coverage and 10-20 minutes, this stuff can be available to you around the world at the time of your choosing !!
- The topics covered in these videos cover anxiety,joy,peace and just being “still” in the presence of God.
Cons of this channel.
The cons of this channel……..hmmm let me see…….To be honest,I couldn’t find any.The proof is in the pudding here so they say.A channel that has 20,000 subscribers…what else is there to say !! :))
So in this article we have covered the following aspects of the YouTube channel “The Mindful Christian” :

It helps me to come back to just “being” as well as covering other areas such as gratitude, anxiety and stillness whilst focused on my creator.
