So Let’s Begin…
YOUR QUEST AWAITS SLEEP MEDITATION SCRIPT
Time to give yourself some space,
To fade into your dreams.
To still your mind, and slow your pulse,
And ease away from the shore.
Close your eyes and imagine water,
The big kind, wavy and free.
Cast your gaze to the horizon,
Take in how vast the sea can be.
Feel the movement of the waves within you,
Let the water’s rhythm take hold.
Remember that water is part of you,
Part of your body and your soul.
Where could that water take you,
If you really gave it a chance?
What could you be seeing,
If you’d only join the dance?
It takes a little bravery,
To put your boat upon the waves.
To pull away from what you know,
And sail toward distant caves.
Relax your shoulders, pull in a breath.
Follow the breath as it fills you up, then let it float away.
Your boat trip can be simple,
A quick escape to solitude.
Or it can signal an adventure,
A change of all you know.
You alone are captain.
You know what you need.
Don’t overthink, or wait too long,
Just decide and take the lead.
Wouldn’t it be amazing,
To be bathed in sun and spray?
To glide atop the water,
Seeking nothing but your own way?
Who knows what you’ll encounter,
As you listen to your soul.
Who knows who you’ll be when you return,
Having heeded your own call.
Hear the sound of oars in water, inhale their energy.
Feel the warmth of sunshine on your shoulders, exhale mindfully.
Imagine peering into the water,
Gazing into its depths.
What truths swirl beneath the surface,
Waiting for you to come to grips?
What have you been ignoring,
Or simply hiding out of view?
What can the water reflect back your way,
To help you start anew?
Of course it is no accident,
That water is like a mirror.
It reminds us of our essence,
And assures there’s nothing to fear.
Water goes wherever it chooses,
Forever forging its way.
How can you be like water?
What new path can you find today?
Breathe in from that knowing place, refresh your heart and mind.
Breathe out from a peaceful place, sinking deeper into self.
The journey starts with just one step,
One choice to light the way.
So put that boat in the water,
Prepare to go where you may.
Untether the boat from its moorings,
Step in and find your balance.
Grab the oars and start rowing,
Let your conscience be your ballast.
Row in the direction that feels right,
Whether shore or open sea.
Fall into the rhythm of your toiling arms,
Keep your mind clear so you can see.
Though it may feel like you’re running away.
The opposite is true.
You’re setting off on your own quest,
A voyage to discover you.
Breathe in with purpose, slow and deep.
Exhale with intention, easy and free.
Move across the water,
Open and unbound.
Feel the earth breathe along with you,
Relax into the sound.
The oars are like your arms now,
The boat your new foundation.
This world your mind has conjured,
Exists to aid your self-creation.
Remember what you’re here for.
See the new you in your mind.
Row and row until you reach that truth,
Until you land on what you wanted to find.
When that happens, take a moment.
Stand in awe of what you see.
That lovely you, now that much stronger,
One step closer to the key.
The choice to grow belongs to you.
The trip is yours to define.
So step by step, stroke by stroke,
You’ll reach the goal in time.
Take it from the water,
From the wisdom of the sea.
Progress happens wave by wave,
And echoes for centuries.
Your time in the water matters.
It’s a gift you give to you.
One that changes not just self,
But everything it touches too.
So take that boat out often.
The conditions are always right.
Just imagine fair skies and beautiful views,
And row with all your might.
You’ll get there when you get there,
The pace is not the point.
What matters is the power you find,
The truths that must be voiced.
Enjoy your rest now, lovely one, and breathe in blissful peace.
Change is coming, even as you sleep, so give in to sweet release.
