So Let’s Begin…
FANTASY SLEEP JOURNEY SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Close your eyes and dream of things
In a world beyond our own.
A forest of colors and shapes and scents
To dazzle your sleeping mind.
If you could let your imagination roam,
Let it build a realm from scratch,
Who would live and breathe and love there?
What would grow and thrive?
Start with what you see on the ground,
What sprawls around your feet.
Picture a bed of lush green grass,
Deep purple flowers everywhere.
Between the flowers, chipmunks dart,
Chasing each other up trees and down.
Small birds the color of green apples,
Watch from high above.
The birds sing and chirp in upbeat tones,
As they jump from branch to branch.
Every now and then, a brave one swoops,
Finding a new tree to call its own.
Relax into the beauty of this place, hear the birds speak to your heart.
Pull the sweet air into your lungs as you settle deeper into sleep.
The trees in the place are massive,
So high the tops can’t be seen.
The light must trickle through them,
Making bright patterns down below.
They stand like tall protectors,
Guarding all in their midst.
Their leaves fill the air with rich freshness,
And their trunks give the insects homes.
So many creatures fill this place,
It’s hard to know where to look.
The flourishing forest teems with life,
Yet peaceful silence covers all.
Anything seems possible here,
A world of dewy, green magic.
Let your spirit loose to explore the woodland,
Flitting along with the butterflies.
Inhale and feel the enchantment within, filling you with hope and fancy.
Exhale and see what else you can discover, hiding in mossy depths.
The scents are as lovely as the sights,
Heady and full of promise.
Sun-soaked leaves and rain-soaked earth,
The blend so intoxicating.
It’s as if nothing unpleasant or wrong can thrive here,
Everything reaching for its greatest good.
You, too, are like a creation of the forest,
Adding power to the collaboration.
This woodland is a place of wishes,
Of simple desires made real.
So what might you request of the trees?
What might your heart long to feel?
What deep desire have you been holding inside?
Perhaps it’s time to speak its name.
What spectacular fantasy waits to unfold,
If only you’ll set it free?
Breathe in and know that all can be yours, that the universe awaits your call.
Breathe out whatever’s been holding you back, and say your longing out loud.
Picture yourself growing stronger,
The deeper you move into the wood.
Made not only of wishes but healing,
This place can transform you for good.
Kindness and patience rush toward you,
Lifting you up like the birds.
You giggle as you realize your soul has grown wings,
And it carries you up toward the skies.
Beyond the canopy of sun-dappled leaves,
Lies a brilliant canvas of blue.
There is no limit to what’s possible there,
And that boundlessness now includes you.
Your wish is not just yours anymore,
It belongs to the sun and the sky.
Whatever desire you once hoped to achieve,
Has now swelled exponentially.
Look down on the forest as you float in the clouds,
See that it’s just one of many.
Your imagination holds dozens of places like this,
Magical realms just waiting to be explored.
All of this beauty exists inside you,
Splendor eager to burst into bloom.
You just have to set your vision free,
And follow inspiration where it leads.
Now that you’ve glimpsed possibility,
Let your awestruck spirit float back toward the ground.
Plant your feet in the rich grass beneath you,
And try to soak in what you can.
You can only come back if you remember,
If you invest in the dreamwork to be done.
So pull the forest’s wisdom into your body,
And vow to hold it tightly from now on.
Lie down on the grass before you go,
Feel its silky caress beneath you.
Look up toward the sky and recall that you flew there,
Let the wonder seep into your skin.
Train your ear on the birdsong,
On the creatures who croon joyfully.
Take their sounds into your soul as well,
Fold them into your flourishing spirit.
Breathe in the aromas one last time,
For that is where this memory will live.
Smell moss and herbs and pungent pine,
Mixed with lilies and geraniums.
Breathe in as you tuck this beauty in your heart.
Breathe out knowing the magic is part of you now.
