So Let’s Begin…
BATHE YOURSELF IN SUNSHINE SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
As evening comes and your life goes quiet,
Find a space you can truly rest.
Close your eyes and slow your breath,
Feel peace settle in your chest.
Imagine yourself walking,
The location matters little.
Whether city streets or country lanes,
Sunshine keeps its vigil.
The light is always there for you,
Even on cloudy days.
You might even find it in the rain,
Smiling down with rainbow rays.
So choose a direction in your mind,
A path you’d like to follow.
Set off in search of sunshine,
Seek out its healing glow.
Picture a sunny highway,
Surrounded by farmers’ fields.
A winding road for you to explore,
To see what discoveries it yields.
See yourself in a convertible,
A beautiful, elegant car.
Drive like you and the road are one,
Breeze past countryside near and far.
The drive itself is the purpose.
There is no destination.
Grip the wheel and enjoy the view,
As you accept nature’s invitation.
As you drive, you long for music,
So you turn on the radio.
You sing along to your favorite songs,
Belting them out louder as you go.
It’s like a celebration,
A mobile party just for you.
You sway your body as you steer,
Your heart soaring as you do.
The warmth of the sun on your shoulders,
Only adds to your growing pleasure.
It’s as if the light is blessing your trip,
Adding joy too great to measure.
The farther you go, the warmer you feel,
The gentle heat sinks right into your soul.
Craving more, you hit the gas,
Eager to explore the open road.
Perhaps you see animals grazing,
Cows and sheep and goats.
They’re soaking up sun like you are,
Content to feed on gentle slopes.
Beyond the animals are houses,
Tall, welcoming structures in the distance.
The sun shines down on their sturdy roofs,
Giving its approval to their existence.
Children play in every yard,
Their cheerful laughter fills the air.
You find yourself grinning along with them,
Remembering the joy of life without cares.
For a moment, you feel like a kid again,
Like every worry has been erased.
You’re filled with the hope that sunshine brings,
With every bit of darkness replaced.
As you stay the course and keep driving,
The landscape changes a bit.
The meadows and fields become rolling hills,
Small peaks on which the sun can sit.
You have to pull out your sunglasses,
As the picture before you starts to glow.
You focus on the highway ahead,
Eager to see how far you can go.
You start to wonder what waits ahead,
If there’s even more light to be found.
With the sun as your guide and hope in your heart,
The possibilities are profound.
The music grows mellow and soothing,
Like the sunshine wants you to linger.
You slow your pace and take in the vista,
Whispering thanks for our brilliant light-bringer.
We’re here to make a difference.
We’re here to treasure our gifts.
We’re here to help and learn and grow,
To repair our meaningless rifts.
It’s hard to feel hopeless in the sunshine.
Apprehensions tend to shrivel in the light.
Shade can be a relief, but not an escape,
And truth is clearer when the view is bright.
So drive as long as you need to,
Find the vision that lights up your spirit.
Point your car toward the sunshine,
And keep going until you can feel it.
As you drift off to sleep, you feel lighter.
Your anxieties have all burned away.
You’ve done good things for your heart and your mind,
And you’ve already made tomorrow a good day.
Sleep peacefully through the night, sweet spirit.
Let rosy images fill your dreams.
The sun is looking out for you,
Making your future just as bright as it seems.
