Insomnia Relief Meditation Script
Allow yourself to settle,
Snuggling into your favorite sleeping position,
And close your eyes.
Take a deep breath in, letting your body expand with fresh air,
And exhale, allowing your body to melt deeper into comfort.
It’s time to rest, beautiful.
There’s nowhere you need to be, nothing you need to do.
So come with me into dreamland.
Feel the heaviness of your eyes.
Feel your cheeks soften,
Dropping your tongue from the roof of your mouth as your jaw releases.
Let your shoulders soften and lower,
Let your arms feel heavy,
Your fingers melt.
Feel your chest rising and falling as you breathe in just a little longer, and exhale just a little more.
Relax your stomach,
Let your legs let go and get heavier with relaxation.
Let your feel release.
And feel the cool air on your nose as you breathe in,
And the warm air on your nose as you breathe out.
Now imagine that there’s a soft, blue energy floating above you. Like a soothing cloud of mist, this soft blue energy hovers above you. You feel safe and calm, so you invite it in.
Now imagine that soft, blue energy pouring over your head slowly. You immediately feel it soften you, relax you, nourish you…release you. Feel the soft, blue energy on your head, relaxing your face, your shoulders, your chest.
Melting your arms, fingers, stomach, hips, thighs, legs and toes.
Imagine the soft, blue energy is now at your feet, patiently waiting.
As you breathe in, let your breath search for any areas of unrest, any thoughts or discomforts that may be keeping you awake.
Let every inhale help you find them within your body.
And now imagine that with every breath out, you release them all to the soft, blue energy at your feet. Breathing those thoughts or discomforts down to your feet and out of your body. And watch as the soft, blue energy absorbs them all.
Take one more look inside and release all that unrest on your outbreath.
Feel the heaviness of your body.
Feel the lightness of your mind.
And notice the deep, relaxed comfort you feel.
Now see that soft, blue cloud of energy at your feet.
You can see all your thoughts and feelings of unrest swirling inside of it.
They’re not yours to hold onto anymore.
And every time you breathe out,
You notice the soft, blue energy dissolve away.
Bit by bit.
Every time you exhale.
A bit more disappears.
Until you look down and see…nothing.
Notice the relief you feel.
Notice the lightness.
Notice the freedom.
The Story Behind the Meditation
Lately, I’ve been having a lot of trouble falling asleep. I come to the bed exhausted from a day of mommying, working and navigating all the things of life during this pandemic. I close my eyes and within seconds, I’m just a breath away from dreamland.
Some horrible vision bursts into my mind. It usually involves some dangerous scenario with me or my little girls. Some version of me getting hurt or one of them getting hurt…or worse.
A shot of adrenaline pumps into my body and immediately, I’m wide awake, doing my best to move my thoughts away from that vision as fast as possible.
And always…I turn to guided meditations. The soothing voice always calms my nerves, the guidance forces my mind to pay attention to something else and eventually…I fall asleep.
If you find yourself experiencing any type of insomnia, I hope this meditation helps. I hope it easily lulls you into the sleep you know you need, but have been having trouble finding. And I hope you wake up feeling refreshed and grateful.
