So Let’s Begin…
SINK INTO DEEP PEACE SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Eyes closed, body still,
Let the day’s weight slip away.
It’s time to shed the excess,
To strip away what doesn’t serve.
Tune in as it happens,
Feel the lightening, the lifting,
The easing of tension and strain.
Limb by limb, cell by cell,
Your body settles and calms,
Paving the way for your mind to follow.
Your breathing changes as you go,
Deeper, slower, fuller,
Nourishing tired muscles,
Feeding a tired brain,
Soothing a tired soul,
Embracing a tired heart.
Feel pride in that fatigue,
Before you let it go.
Let your mind smile
At what you were willing to give,
And let that inner smile widen
As you realize what you gained in return.
Bring your thoughts back to your breathing,
To its elemental magic and power.
That breath is the key to restoration,
A secret to finding yourself once again,
Ensuring you’ll give tomorrow what it needs,
By doing the same for yourself tonight.
Feel the breath as you draw it, fresh and full of life.
Feel the breath as you set it free, purposeful and strong.
Give in to that sinking feeling,
Knowing it’s the good kind,
The best kind,
The kind that means you’re descending into peace,
That you’ve come back to where you belong,
As the day’s end approaches.
Think about your shoulders,
Dropping gently toward the bed,
About the relief they feel as burdens are set aside.
Let that relief seep down to arms and elbows and hands.
Gradually stretch each finger,
And gently press your palms flat as they ground you.
Extend the feeling to the rest of your body,
To weary legs and feet and toes.
Release the tension in your back,
The center of the body’s strength,
Imagine light slipping down each vertebrae,
Leaving a trail of warmth behind.
Go back to your breath,
Hear it without listening,
Follow it without questioning.
Gratefully go where it takes you.
It knows what you need,
Even when you’re not sure.
Take a long, slow breath, feel it fill your chest.
When you’ve taken in all you can, exhale what you don’t need.
Peace is near now,
Hovering just ahead,
Waiting for you to claim it.
Relaxation is yours now,
Flowing through your muscles and tendons,
Easing you toward sleep.
Peace comes to us in pieces,
A chain of moments or decisions,
Each one breaking ground for the next.
You feel it like a soft cascade,
Like rolling waves of serenity,
Sent from a benevolent ocean of calm.
At first peace feels separate,
Like a small target on the horizon,
But the deeper we sink,
The closer it appears,
Until we can reach out with our minds
And let it pull us into its arms.
You’re a different person in that space,
A scattered soul returned to self.
What seemed impossible just moments before
Is now free to bloom and grow.
Body, heart, and mind unite,
Their shared pulse a lullaby.
So close your inner eye as well,
The most watchful one of all.
Thank it for its diligence,
For keeping your essence intact,
And remind it of tomorrow’s promise,
Waiting beyond the solace of night.
Pull in a deep breath and feel yourself expand.
Push that breath out into the world and bask in your new openness.
Let your breathing chart the course,
And feel the steady, comforting waves.
The truth is in that rhythm,
In the pulsing, beating all,
And you lie at the center,
Safe to rest in sweet refuge.
Feel the peace at last.
Let it soak into your cells.
Know the joy of stillness,
And savor its safe warmth.
There is no better place for you,
No more welcoming or loving home.
Release all thoughts,
Release all cares.
Ease your way toward blissful rest,
Toward the wholeness that you crave.
Nothing remains to be done this day,
But to take good care of you.
For you deserve what you give others.
You deserve to be sheltered in love.
You deserve to rest and replenish,
To retreat from all but self.
You deserve to feel your tender heart,
To hear it echo with your strength.
Inhale and feed that beating heart, give it what it needs.
Exhale and free your struggling soul, show it what it can be.
Breathe it in,
That loving care.
Feel it flood your every pore.
Revel in its tenderness,
Nestle into its kindness,
Let it grow and multiply.
Sink into that peace at last.
Let it soothe you,
Lull you as you drift deeper.
Let it wrap you in wellbeing,
And quiet all but truth.
You are magic.
You are light.
