So Let’s Begin…
LISTENING TO YOURSELF MORNING MEDITATION SCRIPT
So settle into your position,
Getting yourself comfortable so you can be both relaxed and alert.
Perhaps even asking your body what she needs right now to achieve that,
And then listening to what she has to say.
And then relax even deeper into your position.
Notice any thoughts that may be swirling around in your head,
Observing them from afar,
And imagining them floating away,
One by one,
Leaving your mind spacious and clear.
Now be here.
Without judging what you hear within yourself,
But instead doing your best to recognize whether you’re hearing the noise of your ego,
The noise inside your head,
Or the sounds of your inner voice,
Just be here,
Now bring your attention back to your breath,
Taking a big, deep breath in as we bring our practice to a close,
And exhale as you bring your hands to your heart.
Today’s practice of listening to yourself may have been frustrating as the noise took over in your head, or it may have been enlightening as you really heard your inner voice. Or, possibly both.
It’s all okay. Your practice today was exactly what it was supposed to be. And this meditation is here for you anytime you want to continue practicing listening to yourself.
