EASE YOUR ANXIETY AS WE COME OUT OF QUARANTINE MEDITATION SCRIPT

For months now, we’ve all gotten used to the short term norms of quarantine as we experience the Coronavirus pandemic.

And now, as the world begins to open up and as people begin to gather again, the worries, concerns, strategic planning and logistics may be overwhelming.

And the anxiety that arises can build up in our bodies, in our minds and in our souls.

So the intention of today’s meditation is to help you ease your anxiety as we come out of quarantine, so you can connect to your inner voice who will help you calmly navigate the decisions to be made and the emotions that come up.

So Let’s Begin…

So come with me and ease your anxiety. Let your body settle into comfort,

Inviting it to ease into a position that allows you to feel relaxed and alert.

Close your eyes and feel the rhythm of your body as you breathe.

Letting your inhales and exhales slow down.

Feel your eyes get a bit heavier,

Release your jaw and let your tongue fall from the roof of your mouth.

Ease your anxiety.

Lower your shoulders,

And feel your arms get heavy.

Soften your stomach,

Sink your legs deeper into their position,

And let your feet relax.

Breathe.

PAUSE…

To help ease your anxiety, I want you to imagine that you’re sitting in your favorite chair,

Relaxed and comfortable. You feel safe here.

There’s a book resting on your legs.

And as you open it, your eyes start reading what you see on its pages.

How should I go back to my workplace? It reads. How will I stay safe?

You feel the stress swell inside your chest. Worry. Uncertainty.

So you turn the page.

Should I send my kids back to school yet? This page reads. Or let others take care of them yet?

You see your shoulders rise with tension. Fear.

You quickly turn to the next page.

How integrated should I be now? How risky is it?

You close the book as you feel your body engulfed with the heaviness of these questions.

Take a moment to breathe and to ease your anxiety.

And imagine that all the anxiety, the fear, the uncertainty that your feeling inside of you moves out from your body and into this book.

You can see it. It’s a dark grey cloud and you watch it as it moves from your body into the book.

Take a minute to think about what other questions you might have. What else do you see written in this book?

And if you experience stress or anxiousness as you think about these questions, or if your mind starts racing with trying to figure it all out, just imagine that dark grey cloud of anxiety or thoughts moving from your body and into this book.

PAUSE…

Now take a deep breath in, letting your belly expand with fresh air, ease your anxiety.

And on your exhale, let any remaining thoughts or emotions travel within that dark grey cloud, out of your body and into the book.

Feel the weight of the book on your lap.

And imagine yourself turning to yet another page in the book, and as you do, you realize you have a pen in your hand.

And that the page you turned to is blank.

This is where you get to write what you want.

This is where you get to write what works for you.

This is where you get to write your personal plan for coming out of quarantine that makes you feel safe and to help ease your anxiety.

It’s all up to you.

And as the music plays on for a few minutes, I want you to imagine yourself writing onto those pages.

And that you’re doing so while you’re relaxed, comfortable and safe in your favorite chair.

Totally peaceful and clear.

So now…without editing and without judgement…just write.

PAUSE…

You get to decide how you want to navigate these times…every step of the way.

So take a deep breath in, letting your breath search for any leftover pockets of stress or fear or tension,

And on your exhale, let them all go and ease your anxiety.

Namaste, Beautiful.
