So Let’s Begin…
FLIGHT OF THE BEES SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Put your head on the pillow,
A soft blanket just in reach.
Claim your space and prepare to rest,
It’s time to take care of you.
When you’re ready, let your mind float free.
Take your thoughts to a soothing place.
Picture a grassy meadow,
Wildflowers in every direction.
If you study those flowers closely,
With an eye toward more than color,
You’ll see movement over the flowers’ heads,
Something zipping from one to another.
Dedicated to their critical mission,
Nature’s little messengers spread out over the field.
They land on the lovely blossoms,
Spreading pollen wherever they land.
Moving from bud to bud they fly,
Mixing and matching as they go.
A divinely beneficial give and take,
Good for both bee and flower.
Picture the bee’s energetic flight,
Its eager, hopeful pattern.
See it dart all over that fresh green field,
Collecting its essential cargo.
The bee knows exactly what it needs to do,
And it focuses only on that task.
Watch it work with true purpose,
Let its dedication fill you with awe.
Take a deep breath as you think about the power of your own life’s mission.
Exhale and imagine working as hard as the bee to gather what you need.
Once it’s finished in the meadow,
The bee’s job is far from over.
From there it flies back to the hive,
Ready to share its treasure.
Imagine how satisfying it must be,
To return home after a job well done.
By following nothing but its instincts,
The bee tends both itself and its world.
You, too, can live your life that way,
Laser-focused on your primary purpose.
And just like the bee’s quest to feed its family,
You serve others when you honor your nature.
Picture a hive of buzzing bees,
A community with goals in alignment.
Feel the fullness of this cooperative spirit.
Let that hive energy fill you,
Feel its hope and clear intention.
Think about the sweet results,
The bounty the bees’ work yields.
Even that honey is more than it appears,
Giving both enjoyment and good health.
It’s the perfect symbol of generous effort,
An image of the harmony we all long to find.
The bees still remember what matters the most,
Even if humans so often forget.
Visualize the difference you could make in your life,
If you embraced the example of the hive.
Think about the ways you could find that connection,
The ways you could build a community of your own.
Envision the joy of finding like-minded souls,
People who work to harvest life’s gifts.
Feel your heart smile as you inhale, feel it delight in the possibilities.
Let peace fill you as you exhale, the peace that understanding brings.
Take yourself back to the meadow,
Smell the flowers and enjoy the view.
Once again let your eye follow the bees,
Sink into new calm as you watch.
Their movement is mesmerizing,
A mixture of dancing and flight.
Your spirit starts to wish it could follow,
To zoom through the air without thought.
There’s nothing to worry about in this meadow,
No ticking clock or demanding voices.
It’s perfectly fine to follow the bees’ example,
And tend to your purest needs.
Nature is the wisest force of all.
Nature always knows what’s best.
So just like the bees, it’s smart to take heed,
When that quiet inner voice speaks.
The logic is the same for you and the bees;
Be true to your purpose, the reason you’re here,
And choose that above all else.
Just like bees are meant to pollinate the world,
And then to sweeten it with honey,
You are meant to contribute what only you can,
Your efforts inspiring others to do the same.
As you picture this future, your heart starts to lift,
Offering comfort and fulfillment.
There’s no greater bliss than being true to yourself,
And, like the bees, your hard work really matters.
Before you drift away into deeper sleep,
Take a moment to think about tomorrow.
Promise yourself you’ll begin the day with purpose,
That above all else, you’ll listen to you.
Breathe deeply and know that it’s finally time
For your spirit to fly free like the bees.
Let it fly high and take in the view,
Then pay attention to the plan it reveals.
As your thoughts subside and sleep takes over,
Settle into the new contentment.
Inside of you, there’s an industrious bee,
Just waiting to share what it can.
Drift off into that blissful place,
The tranquil space within.
Rest well in the knowledge that sweet things await,
And believe that you’re meant to create them.
