BACK TO SCHOOL SERIES – MOMMY NEEDS A TIME OUT MEDITATION SCRIPT
It’s time to chill, mama.
To take a deep breath and recenter yourself.
Because you’re mommying hard and right now…
It’s too much.
Maybe you found yourself yelling at those around you
Perhaps you’ve said unkind words to yourself or others
Maybe you just feel completely undone after taking on yet another parenting responsibility.
Whatever it is, you need a time out.
So the intention of this meditation is to give you a sanctuary…a special space where you can let go of all the responsibilities, frustrations, high charged emotions…
And just BE.
So you can get back to center and live the rest of your day in a peaceful, joyful flow.
SO LET’S BEGIN…
So let's begin by taking three deep breaths in
Filling your body with air as you inhale
And exhaling out all the way to the end of your breath.
Deep breath in…
Last deep inhale
Now return your breath to its normal rhythm.
Recognizing how more relaxed your body feels.
Pausing to take deep breaths in stressful moments can be such a tremendous tool to slow you down, take you out of your spinning mind and connect you to your true self.
So just be here with your breath for a few moments
Feeling your inhale fill your belly
And your exhale release the tension in your body
I want you to witness all the thoughts racing around in your mind
Notice the common phrases that keep appearing
Maybe they sound like
I can’t do this anymore
This is too much
If I have to deal with this one more time
This kid is testing me
Notice the common scenes you are seeing in your mind
Perhaps you’re replaying a stressful event that just occured
Maybe you’re envisioning your desired solution
Or maybe you’re even playing out all the things that you’ve labeled as wrong
All these thoughts, all these visuals, all these words…
I want you to see them floating around in your head
And with every breath out, imagine them being released from your mind
And exiting your body
Relaxing your body deeper and deeper
Breathe them all out…
Now observe yourself once again
And now notice the emotions that are present.
Maybe you’re feeling anger
It could be a mixture of these and others.
Take a few moments to identify your emotions
To put a name on what you’re feeling right now
These emotions are charged right now
And they can mute our true voice
Sometimes causing us to act out of our emotions rather than what we know to be the truth.
So take a deep breath in, seeing all these emotions swirling around your body
And as you exhale,
Feel as all of your emotions are released from your body,
Releasing the tension and stress they can carry.
And breathe them all out
Clearing your thoughts and your emotions helps you to just be still.
So be here with me right now, mama.
In this moment
Just rest in your breath as you allow my words to comfort you.
You are doing a great job
And you’re a phenomenal mother
No matter what life is throwing at you right now
No matter how hard this moment feels
No matter how lost or exhausted or overwhelmed you might feel
You are an amazing mom.
And everything is already okay.
Breathe in calm
And breathe out any stress that might still be present
Breathe in forgiveness, for yourself and for those around you
And breathe out the ego.
Breathe in the easy
And breathe out the hard.
Breathe in love,
And breathe out any more tension.
You are an incredible mama
