If you are speaking this to another person or recording
your voice, make sure you talk slowly and clearly.
This meditation is very deep and uses a standard
self-hypnosis induction process to bypass the conscious mind.. It will include
special mental statements and techniques during the deepest part of the induction.
WARNING: Do not operate an automobile or heavy machinery during this meditation.
In this meditation, your body and mind
will be relaxed, yet you will remain awake and alert, sensitive to
your feelings, aware of your thoughts, and in touch with the sensations
in your body. When you are deeply relaxed, your intuitive mind is able
to perceive the world in and around you with great clarity. While you
are in a peaceful, relaxed state, you will be able to use the control
center of your brain to reprogram undesired negative beliefs and integrate
burdening emotional experiences from the past. At all times during this
meditation, you will be control of your mental faculties. You will be
able to accept or reject anything I say and you will be able to use the
information for your benefit and the benefit of humanity. I will be giving
you statements designed to increase your self-awareness. I will also be
giving you affirmations designed to promote a healthy body, emotions and
Make sure you are sitting comfortably and wearing loose
clothing. If you are wearing a belt, you might want to loosen or
undo it. If possible, sit with your spine erect and feet flat on the
floor. You can do this meditation lying down if you are not prone to
falling asleep easily, but it may be less effective than sitting.
Begin by closing your eyes and taking a
few deep breaths. Inhale slowly and deeply, then hold your breath
for about one second, and begin slowly exhaling. When you reach the
end of the exhale, wait about one second before beginning the next slow
deep inhale. Continue breathing this way throughout the meditation.
If you find yourself forgetting to breathe, gently bring yourself back
into this breathing rhythm.
Try to let any persistent thoughts
in your mind just drift away. Imagine that there is nothing to think
about and nothing to do but relax and breathe. Know that each time
you do this meditation, it will be easier to breathe deeply and relax.
Everything I say is designed to help you improve your life. You are
safe. You are completely at peace. Nothing can disturb you during this
meditation. You will continue to listen to the sound of my voice as
Begin to notice the top of your head.
Notice if it feels tight or loose, heavy or light. See if you can
feel the weight of your head. Notice the weight of your eyelids.
If your eyes are closed, let your eyelids drop naturally over your
eyes. Do not try to force your eyelids shut. Feel the top of your
head relaxing. With each breath, your head is becoming more relaxed.
Now focus your attention on your
face. Notice if your cheeks are contorted or tense and if they are,
relax. Let your mouth remain closed, but allow your teeth to separate.
Do not clench your teeth. Feel your jaw drop a little from gravity.
Feel the back of your neck. Notice if
there is any tension, and if there is, feel it draining away with each
breath you take. Do not worry about your posture. Just hold your head
up in the most comfortable way possible. Your neck is becoming completely
Now feel your head, neck and shoulders
letting go and relaxing. Let your shoulders drop. Let the weight
of your arms and hands pull your shoulders down. If there is any
tightness or pain in your shoulders, feel it draining away with each
breath. You are becoming more and more relaxed.
As you continue to breathe, remember to
remain awake and aware, sensitive to your thoughts and feelings and in touch
with any sensations in your body. Remember to breathe fully and deeply. Know
that with each breath, you are relaxing more and more, yet remaining alert
to anything that needs your attention.
Imagine a wave of relaxation moving
down your spine, beginning at the back of your shoulders. Feel this
warm, peaceful sensation moving one vertebra at a time until it reaches
the base of your spine. If you find it difficult to sit erect while
relaxing your spine, then let your spine slump a little just for this
exercise. As you relax your spine, notice if there is any tightness
or tension in your upper back. If there is, let it go with the next breath.
Now do the same for the middle of your back. When you are sure your upper
and middle back is completely relaxed, move down to your lower back.
Your back and spine are now completely relaxed.
Focus your attention on your chest. Notice
whether or not your breath includes your chest or is restricted
to your abdomen. If your inhale and exhale seem to be coming from
your abdomen, gently bring the breath up to your chest area. Feel your
lungs filling with air and expanding on each inhale. Feel your lungs
contract and your chest subsiding with each exhale. Imagine any tension
just drifting away with each breath.
Now move down to your abdominal area.
With each breath focus on a different organ relaxing. Begin with
the stomach. Imagine that your digestion is working perfectly and
your stomach has just the right amount of food in it. Now relax your
stomach muscles and feel a wave of warm, peaceful energy moving over your
stomach. On the next breath, do the same for the organs that are harder
to feel. Your liver. Next, your spleen. Then your kidneys. And pancreas.
If you are a woman, focus on your reproductive organs, uterus and womb.
Next, move down into your colon area (below your stomach). Try to
relax the muscles in this area. Notice whether or not your bladder
is empty or full. If it is empty, relax it completely. If not, try to
relax it as much as possible.
Focus on your hips and buttocks. Again, let
your posture go. Do not be concerned about it. If you are sitting in
a chair, your hips and buttocks should be resting naturally on the
chair. Feel the weight of your body on the chair. Feel yourself relaxing
into the chair.
Imagine your relaxation continuing to move down
into your legs, across your knees and down into your calves and lower
legs. Notice how much your left leg is relaxing. Notice how much your right
leg is relaxing. Relax both of them at the same time. Continue to breath
and feel yourself entering a deep sense of peace and tranquility, while
remaining awake and alert to any activity that requires it.
Imagine that all your tension has collected in
a ball at your feet. Feel this ball rolling out of the bottom of
your feet. All tension is draining out through the bottom of your
feet. Go ahead and wiggle your toes to release the last of the tension.
Now do the same for your arms, elbows, forearms, wrists,
hands, and fingers. Feel all remaining tension draining out through
your fingertips. Go ahead and wiggle your fingers.
Take a deep breath, deeper than before, and with
the next exhale, let out an audible “sigh”. Let gravity force the
breath out. Do not force your exhale. Imagine you are breathing a sigh
of relief. With the next breath, let everything go. Feel your entire
body relax and let go. There is nothing to worry about, nothing to fear.
There is just this wonderful, peaceful, relaxed moment. Spend a few minutes
now enjoying this peaceful moment. If any pain, tightness or tension
arises anywhere in your body, release it with the next breath.
Now I am going to ask you to visualize being on the tenth
floor of an office building. The floor is bustling with activity. People
are sitting at desks, talking on telephones, using computers and meeting
in conference rooms. This floor represents the surface level of consciousness.
Each floor in the building represents a level of mind. Now imagine yourself
walking to the elevator. The elevator door is opening and you are now
entering the elevator. You are going to go down to a deeper level of consciousness
in the elevator. See the door to the elevator closing now. You are in the
elevator. There is a down arrow button indicating that the elevator is going
down to the lower floors. Go ahead and push the button. Feel the elevator
start to descend. I am going to count from 10 down to 1. With each descending
number, you will descend one floor. We are starting on the tenth floor. With
each descending number you are entering a deeper, more creative and aware
state of mind, deeper than before. 10.....9.....8.....going down, going deeper....7....6.....5...
the sounds around you and the sensations in your body help you to go deeper.
4....3.... watching the floors go by in the elevator.....2.....and 1. You
are now at the bottom floor. This floor represents a very deep state of
mind, deeper than before. You are now in a deeper level of mind than you
have been in a long time. From this deep level of mind you have great creative
power. You have the power to effect healing on your body, mind and emotions.
The following statements are designed to help you improve
your physical, emotional and mental health, with specific emphasis on
the physical body. I will say each statement in first person so that it
will be as though you are speaking to yourself. Regardless of whether
or not the statements make sense, say them to yourself silently (if you
are listening to this meditation) or aloud (if you are reading it). Say
these statements as if you really mean them. [Pause between each statement.]
I love my body and nourish it with good food and loving thoughts.
I am now in perfect, radiant physical health.
I love to express my spiritual nature through my radiant physical
All the cells of my body are daily bathed in the perfection
of my Divine Being.
I now let go of all limiting beliefs and habit patterns that
dissipate energy and cause illness.
I am freeing myself of all medical myths that portray illness
and death as inevitable. My body is capable of permanent health and well-being.
All aspects of my diet and lifestyle are now moving into alignment
and harmony with my being.
My built-in body intelligence protects me from harmful substances
My body and mind are innocent and reflect my loving heart.
I'm glad I was born. The universe rejoices at my physical presence.
I always have everything I need to be happy and healthy. [Long
You are in a very relaxed state of mind. Know that all you
have to do to relax is focus on your body and breathe deeply and fully.
This meditation will get easier and easier each time you use it. This
meditation is completely safe. You are completely safe. Everything is
in perfect order. There is nothing to do, nowhere to be, but be right
here, right now.
Now, I am going to count from 1 to 10. With each ascending number,
you will become more wide awake and alert. You will feel refreshed and energetic,
as if you had just slept for a full night. There will be no ill effects whatsoever,
on this or any other level of mind. You will be able to recall everything
said during this meditation and use it for your benefit and the benefit
of others. 1....2....3.... coming out slowly now....4.....5.....6....
coming out of meditation.....7.....8.....9.....10.
Open your eyes and stretch your body, wiggling your
fingers and toes. Get up from your chair and move your body around gently,
shaking out any tiredness. You are now refreshed and energetic, feeling
rested and calm, with a clear mind and heart.
