Today’s guided meditation will give you a visualization you can use while in savasana position.
The very first meditation I ever experienced,
Was at the end of a yoga class,
As we melted into Savasana…corpse pose.
It was a magical experience,
And I hope to give you a bit of that magic during this meditation.
So Let’s Begin…
SAVASANA (CORPSE POSE) GUIDED MEDITATION SCRIPT
So allow yourself to settle,
Inviting your body to lie down comfortably.
Now take a moment to stretch your arms as far above your head as possible,
And then stretch your legs in the opposite direction,
Elongating your spine,
Stretching your body.
Now as you exhale,
Release your arms and legs,
And relax yourself into comfort.
Feel what’s beneath you,
Or your bed,
Or the couch,
And just become aware of the weight of your body on top of it.
Now breathe in deeply,
Expanding your belly as far as you can,
Holding it for a moment,
And then exhaling,
Contracting the belly,
And letting all that air go.
Relax even deeper,
Melting just a bit more with every breath out.
Savasana, or corpse pose,
Gives us a chance to practice stillness.
To practice the art of being,
And not doing.
To practice clearing our minds,
And softening our bodies.
There is nowhere for you to be,
Nothing for you to do.
So surrender yourself to the pose,
Breathing yourself deeper,
And deeper into this moment.
Allow your feet to part,
Your legs to soften,
Open your hips,
And soften your belly.
Feel a warming energy travel slowly up your spine,
Beginning at the bottom of your back,
Breath by breath,
One vertebrae at a time.
All the way up to the top of your neck.
Let your heart open,
Your arms get heavy,
And your neck and face,
Soften and relax.
Stillness is here within you,
Behind the movement of thoughts,
Past the highways of fear.
Deep within the center of you.
Now slowly begin to wiggle your fingers and toes,
And when you’re ready,
Bring yourself to a sitting position.
Bring your hands to your heart,
And take a moment to honor this body,
The light in me honors the light in you.
