I wrote and recorded a guided relaxation script today for a friend. You can find the script below.
Perhaps I can speak with the Bishop and get approval to upload the guided mediations and relaxations.
Find a comfortable position. Lying down is fine. Reclining is fine. Anything that makes you feel good and easy, or at least as good as possible.
Let’s breathe normally for just a minute. In, out, in out.
Now, let’s take some deeper, longer breaths….and then gently and slowly release the breath.
Now, let’s breathe in and hold the breath for just a bit. Then breathe out. Then hold the air out of your lungs for just a second. Then breathe in again. Hold. Breathe out. Hold. Breathe in.
If you find that breathing in and trying to hold the breath is distressing, return to simply breathing slowly and deeply without any pauses.
Let’s turn our attention to our body and scan through it. Is there are particular area where you feel tension? If you find yourself very tense, try to locate the areas where you feel this the most.
When you find the tense areas, you may say to yourself, “I allow this tension to leave my body. I allow my body to relax.”
If you need extra strength, you might say, “My Higher Self allows my body to relax. My Higher Self allows the tension to leave this area of my body.”
You may try other phrases: “I let go of this tension,” and so on.
Now imagine yourself floating in a river of light. The river is smooth, flowing along gently and slowly. The light from the river warms you and makes you even more comfortable.
Then smaller lights flow up slowly out of the river and form a larger light, and the light encases you and relaxes you even more. Your body is filled with peace; you feel calmness throughout your bones and muscles and tissues as the light fills it.
The light also fills your mind, and the churning and whirring of your mind slows down and slows down more, and your mind is filled with peace.
You remain in this light and this peace as long as you need.
Continue to breathe deeply.
When you are ready, you may thank the light and the river of light and slowly and gently return to your normal mindset with the knowledge that you can always come back here and relax again.
