Listen to Your Body (Listen) Morning Meditation

Today’s morning meditation is an opportunity to listen to your body.

When you take the time to think about how many details are required to work perfectly in order for your body to function – for your lungs to allow you to breathe, for your muscles allowing you to move, for your digestive system allowing you to eat food – you realize that your body is truly a miracle.

If you’ve ever had pain, or an injury or even been sick…you’ve been reminded of how important it is to listen to your body and take care of her.

Your body is so wise. And observing her can give you access to information you need to live your best life.

So the intention of today’s meditation is to give you the space to tune into her…to truly listen to what your body is telling you.

So Let’s Begin…


So close your eyes and settle into a comfortable position.

Bring your attention inward,

And feel the rise and fall of your belly and chest as you breath in and out.


If there’s any pain or discomfort in your body,

Go ahead and take a moment to adjust yourself,

And then settle into deeper relaxation


If you feel your mind wandering or spinning with thoughts,

Just bring your attention back to your breath,

Maybe even silently saying, “breathe in,” when you breathe in.

And “breathe out” when you breathe out.


Your body is wise, my love.

And she is always communicating with you.

And all you have to do to unlock her wisdom…is listen.


What is she telling you?

What does she need?

Just listen in silence for a bit.


Maybe you’ve been feeling pain

What is she telling you to do to relieve it?


Maybe you’re feeling too hungry…or too full.

What do you hear your body say?


Perhaps your muscles have been tense with stress or anxiety.

How can your body help release it?


Maybe she’s exhausted and craves sleep.

How can you give her what she needs?


Maybe she’s been telling you she’s scared or feels unsafe.

Recognize all the ways you’re experiencing this in your body.


Just listen to your body…

What does she need right now?

Take some time to listen.


Now bring your hand to your heart,

Aware of the warmth from your touch,

And silently say thank you to your body.

Namaste, Beautiful
