Today’s morning meditation is a chance for you to stretch and calm down.
Good morning, Beautiful,
Give yourself the gift of a stretch this morning,
So you can awaken your body,
Calm your mind,
And enliven your soul.
So Let’s Begin…
MORNING STRETCH AND MEDITATION SCRIPT
So go ahead and settle into a comfortable sitting position.
And allow yourself to simply be still for a few moments.
Let your attention shift from all the outside noise in your head,
To the calm inside your breath.
Feel your body relaxing further with every breath,
Slowing you down,
And anchoring you here.
Now bring your attention to your arms,
And slowly extend and stretch them in any direction that feels comfortable for you.
Feeling your muscles expand.
Holding it for just a moment.
And then release the stretch,
Allowing your arms to settle deeper into comfort.
Now bring your attention to your neck,
And slowly drop your head to one side,
Feeling the stretch on the side of your neck as you do.
Breathe into the stretch, staying with the pull of the muscles,
Drop your head to the other side, feeling the stretch,
Holding it there for a moment.
And then release,
Bringing your head and your neck back into a comfortable position.
Now bring your attention to your face,
Open your mouth wide,
Stretching out the muscles in your cheeks,
Opening and closing your mouth,
Slowly releasing any tension in your muscles.
Now from your seated position,
Or standing if you like,
Reach your hands up above your head and stretch your legs out as far as you can,
Pointing your toes and opening your fingers.
Imagining your body being pulled from the top and bottom as your body expands.
Feel the stretch align your spine,
And release any pieces of stress or tension stored in your body.
And then release,
Feeling the rush of calmness in your body.
Breathe and release.
Breathe and relax.
