So Let’s Begin…
A NEW WORLD VIEW SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
As you close your eyes and power down,
Ready to let go of the day,
Imagine what you’d like to be different,
The next time you greet the sun.
Instead of thinking about what went wrong,
Relive the moments you loved.
Look for the bright spots, no matter how few,
And sink into their warmth once again.
Notice what those moments have in common,
Notice what they brought out in you.
Remember how strong or joyful you felt,
Pull those feelings deep into your heart.
Such moments don’t have to be rare in life,
Nor must they be hard to find.
If you created them once, you can do it again,
The power lies within you.
The first step is to believe it,
To truly know your strength.
To understand the role you play
In getting what you need.
Breathe in slowly, feel that strength wrap its energy around you.
Exhale deeply and release what’s in your way.
Think about when you last felt at peace,
In sync with everything in your midst.
Picture the source of your contentment,
Conjure its image anew.
Perhaps you were on vacation,
Away from duties and cares,
Finding joy on the open water,
Or nested in a majestic forest.
Maybe you were with family,
The people who know and love you best.
Or friends who always make you laugh,
Who sense exactly what you need.
Maybe you were having an adventure,
Exploring the world’s delights.
Breathing in history and eating good food,
Making this gorgeous planet your own.
Within those memories, there are details,
Bright recollections like firefly trails.
Those are the moments that changed you,
That showed you how high you could fly.
Inhale as you imagine your spirit rising, floating in a sky full of potential.
Exhale and picture yourself changing, feel your heart and mind expand.
Now that you’re in touch with what moves you,
With the bliss that makes life worthwhile,
Use that happiness as a road map,
As a way to light up the mundane.
We can enjoy the things we must do,
Nearly as much as doing what we choose,
If we let ourselves glimpse the sacred in both,
And remember that each one feeds the other.
The ordinary can be beautiful,
When carried out with purpose.
If you paint each moment with its own tiny brush,
The splendor is free to emerge.
With practice, your vision begins to change.
Your outer view softens and shifts.
Soon you realize how little distance exists
In the space between effort and ease.
Toil asks less when it is meaningful,
Since purpose lightens the load.
A lighter heart finds lighter paths,
And leaves the darkness to sputter in its wake.
Sink deeper into your peaceful place,
Let your soul dance through your dreams.
As your rest your body and silence your mind,
New possibilities have room to emerge.
Take a deep and certain breath, knowing the shift has begun.
Exhale that breath and feel the hope, a better tomorrow on the horizon.
Though the process may seem out of reach,
In truth, you create your life from scratch.
You alone are the architect,
And your wisdom guides your hand.
Tomorrow you’ll begin the quest,
One small step at a time.
You’ll view your life with brand new eyes,
And aim for better things.
For even good can be better,
There’s always room to try.
Whether you lead the charge or bring up the rear,
Growth is in your grasp.
You are the engine your life’s train needs,
And your energy stokes the fire.
So ride that train for all you’re worth,
Guide it where you most want to go.
The passion you need burns within you,
Always has, always will, forever more.
The trick is to fuel it every day,
Keep it healthy, strong, and bright.
As you relax and let your body float,
Keep that inner fire in mind.
Let it warm and reassure you,
Let it cocoon you in the night.
Drift away to deeper sleep,
Resting safely on a bed of promise.
Believe that you can adjust your course,
And head for tranquil spaces.
You deserve the whole of it,
The joy, the purpose, the peace.
Sleep blissfully, knowing there’s goodness to come,
When sunlight wakes you with its kiss.
Embrace the possibilities, lovely one,
Feel your dreams working on your behalf.
Every moment that you live and breathe,
Is a chance for magic to burst into view.
You’re safe and well and right on track.
The stars are watching over you.
And when you rise and greet the day,
You’ll feel refreshed by a new world view.
