Close your eyes,
And invite yourself to settle.
Find your breath.
And see if you can ride it’s smooth waves in,
And out of your body.
Breathing in a little deeper on each inhale.
And breathing out a little further on each exhale.
Feel your body melt with each breath,
Syncing with the slow,
Calming motion of your breathing.
So Let’s Begin…
NIGHTTIME ANXIETY RELIEF SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Now, see if you can notice any thoughts that are here.
Just observe them,
As if they were bubbles slowly floating in the air.
And separate from you.
Relax your body deeper into comfort,
And as you do,
Imagine those bubbles slowly floating away.
Slowly moving further away from you,
Disappearing into the night.
As more bubbles appear,
Perhaps filled with worries,
Just watch them rise up,
And slowly drift away,
Dancing on the breeze,
And disappearing into the night.
Now see if you can imagine yourself,
Surrounded by the soothing sounds of the forest.
The crickets and the wind play sleep sounds in your ears,
Lulling you into calm.
The trees are surrounding you,
And breathing life into your body.
The soft forest floor tenderly holds you,
And invites you to rest.
This is your place of serenity,
Your place of peace.
Breathe in the air,
And feel it warm you,
And bring you home.
The bubbles may still arise,
But they easily float off into the night.
And each time you see one go by,
You nod in its direction,
Acknowledging its existence,
And then gratefully say goodbye as its journeys into the darkness.
You feel light and open,
Deeply relaxed and healed.
Free of all the bubbles,
That have left you to rest.
Float, float, float away,
The worries are no longer here.
Drift, drift on your way,
Your soul is calm and clear.
