So Let’s Begin…
SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
The intention of tonight’s meditation is to help you detox from social media as you sleep. To help you dissolve all those layers of emotions, reactions and thoughts that have covered you as you’ve scrolled, liked and commented. So you can let it all go and be one with deep sleep tonight.
So let’s begin by taking a deep, cleansing breath in,
Inviting fresh, new oxygen to come deep into your body, all the way down to your toes,
And exhale all the way out.
Take another deep breath in, filling your chest and your belly with another wave of fresh air,
And as you exhale, feel yourself release.
Last deep breath in, filling your belly until it can’t expand anymore,
And breathe out the day.
Bring your breathing to its normal, relaxed rhythm,
And see if you can feel the slight buzz of energy inside of you from the increase of oxygen.
There is nowhere for you to be right now.
Nothing you need to respond to.
No comment you need to make.
No information you need to know.
Now is your time to rest,
To slowly dance with the comforting shadows of the night,
And let yourself be still.
So just be here,
Letting the slow movement of your breathing ease you into the sleep that awaits you.
Let yourself feel the heavy blankets of social media on top of you,
The weight of the emotions, thoughts, responses and habits it creates.
The need to check your phone,
To make a post,
To see what’s going on.
Feel the emotions that arise,
And the thoughts that linger.
Feel the impact of their weight as you lay under those blankets,
Your mind perhaps spinning from the information, interaction and addiction.
Now imagine that the top blanket is gently pulled off.
You immediately feel soothing relief,
And your mind slows down just a bit.
Then the next blanket is pulled away.
And the next,
And the next,
Until all those heavy blankets are gone,
And you lay on your bed feeling free,
And let yourself melt further into your bed.
Let it all go,
And come to sleep.
Sweet Dreams, Beautiful
