Like Leaves Slowly Falling Off of a Tree Sleep Meditation

Tonight’s sleep meditation will help you relax into deep sleep.

Settle yourself into comfort tonight,

And feel the soothing wind relaxing you,

Calming you,

And releasing the leaves from your branches,

As you surrender into deep sleep tonight.

So Let’s Begin…

LIKE LEAVES SLOWLY FALLING OFF OF A TREE SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT

You stand so tall and mighty, dear one.

Branches extended and proud.

Rooted deeply into the ground that nourishes you,

And intricately connected to everything around you.

PAUSE…

Inhale deeply,

And feel your entire body tingle as air travels through you.

Exhale completely,

And relax further into the night.

PAUSE…

You have held so much today, my love.

And still, here you stand.

So invite yourself to melt deeply into your bed tonight,

As Mother Nature guides you into dreamland.

LONG PAUSE…

Feel the soft kiss of wind on your cheeks,

And let them relax,

Releasing your jaw,

And feeling your entire face relax.

PAUSE…

You feel the wind gently swirl through your branches,

Inviting them to dance slowly with its embrace.

In and out,

Side to side,

Back and forth.

Dance and release.

Dance and release.

And breathe…

PAUSE…

The wind softly touches your leaves.

Those thoughts and emotions that have been a part of your day,

Holding onto your branches,

Desperate for your attention and energy.

But you are not fooled.

You know your leaves cannot accompany you into the night.

That you must leave them behind,

So you can be lulled into peaceful sleep.

So breathe in deeply, beautiful tree,

And decide that you will let them go,

And let them float far away from you tonight.

PAUSE…

Breathe out,

And feel the soft break of one of your leaves.

Your tasks left undone.

It drops from your branch until the gentle wind slowly carries it away.

Down,

Down,

Down to the ground.

And then another leave breaks away,

Those are the worries filling your head.

Watch as it floats into the arms of the wind,

And slowly falls to the ground.

Down,

Down,

Down.

Breathe,

And feel the release.

Now one by one,

More leaves follow.

Your fears,

Your plans,

Your memories,

Watch them all release themselves from you,

And float away and onto the ground.

PAUSE…

Your people,

Your circumstance,

Your anxieties,

Feel the peace flood in as each one slowly falls off of your branches,

And settles into the ground beneath you.

Leaving you feeling light,

Calm,

And ready to ease into the night.

LONG PAUSE…

With each breath out,

Feel the release of another leaf,

And relax deeper into sleep.

Sweet Dreams, Beautiful.
