A Tribute to Your Mom Sleep Meditation

Tonight’s sleep meditation will bring our attention to one of the most unique relationships we have…that with our mother or mother figure.  

She gave you life,

Literally or figuratively.

She modeled love,

Unconditional, true love.

She helped mold you into the woman you are today.

Your mother.

So the intentions of today’s meditation is to honor your mother.

This could be your birth mother, your adopted mother or even a woman who has been a mother figure for you throughout your life.

So Let’s Begin…


So close your eyes,

And invite your body to relax.

Become aware of your mind slowing down,

And then let yourself feel your breath.

Feel the oxygen entering your body, expanding your chest and belly.

And feel your breath leave through your exhale as your body pulls back in.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Come into this moment.


And clear.


Let an image of your mother or mother figure come to mind.

It could be an image of her in the present moment,

Or a memory you have of her as a young girl.

Just hold the image of her in your mind.

Let yourself observe her.

Notice her eyes,

Her facial expression,

Her hair,

Her posture.

Imagine she’s sitting in her favorite chair,

A smile on her face, ready to be with you.

You feel special. Loved. Grateful.


I love you, you hear yourself say.

And you see her face soften and light up.

So you continue…

You have shown me what love is.

You’ve shown me love through your tenderness, your toughness, your discipline and your play.

You’ve modeled for me what it means to be a woman,

And that foundation has helped me blossom into my own version of womanhood.

I’ve come to see how imperfect you are,

Yet still have oceans of love for you.

Thank you for being you.

I’m so grateful I am your daughter.


Now take a moment to look at her.

And for the next little bit, invite yourself to say anything else you’d like with her, wrapped in this safe space of love.


Now come back to your breath.

Taking a deep, cleansing breath in,

Feeling the fresh air fill you up,

And as you exhale, release it all,

And feel the waves of peace wash over you.


Allow yourself to be here,

In this special space of stillness,

With your mother,

Surrounded by love.

Namaste, Beautiful.
