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 enhance your ability to access the superconscious mind -- that part of you that is all wise and all knowing.

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 you relax.

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.

Notice the back of your neck. How does it feel? If there is any tension, 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 relaxed.

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.

Now 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.

Next, 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 your self 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. Now notice how much your right leg is relaxing. Now 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. Now 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.

Now imagine that in front of you is a long tunnel. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You will now imagine that you are walking through the tunnel toward the light at the far end. Imagine the sound of your footsteps echoing along the walls of the tunnel as you begin to walk toward the light. You are getting closer to the light. In a moment, you will reach the light. Now you are walking out of the tunnel and into the light, and you find yourself in a beautiful mountain meadow on a warm, sunny day. Fleecy white clouds are drifting along in a deep blue sky. You can hear the sounds of a gentle wind in the trees. There are birds chirping and bees humming. In the meadow are multicolored flowers swaying in the breeze. Imagine you are barefoot and walking along in deliciously cool soft green grass. Notice the vibrant colors of the flowers as you walk along, completely free, completely safe, completely at peace.

In the center of the meadow is a large boulder, and on top of the boulder is a wise person with long flowing hair, wearing golden robes. You can make this wise person a man or a woman, it doesn't matter. This wise person represents your inner self, your inner teacher, your wise self, your higher self, your soul self, or whatever you choose to call him or her. Now see this person welcoming you to the meadow and calling you by name. There is a sparkle in the eye, a softness in the voice, a knowingness in the demeanor. Walk slowly over to this person and make eye contact. See this person looking deep into you. This person knows all about you. This person knows what you need to be happy. This person knows what you need to be healthy. This person knows what you need to have satisfying relationships. This person knows how to direct you to fulfill your purpose in life. Now reach out and take this person's hands and hold them in front of you as you continue to make eye contact. [Pause]

The following statements are designed to help you improve your ability to contact your all knowing, all wise inner self. 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 as if you really mean them. Pause between each statement.

I am now developing superior imaginative and creative abilities.

I now use my higher intelligence to see and end all conflict within myself.

I am now in touch with my all-wise, all-knowing self.

The answers to all of life's questions are within me and I am accessing them now.

I am now developing my higher mind and psychic faculties to perceive information my intellect is incapable of perceiving.

My imagination is a powerful tool used by memory and intelligence to perceive information and create reality.

I am now willing to look at the totality of myself.

I now take full responsibility for creating my own version of reality.

I am reprogramming my mind to create the things I truly desire in life.

I am letting go of old ideas and letting new ones in that better serve me.

With every breath I take, it becomes easier and easier to contact my higher intelligence.

I am now in complete communication with my all-wise, all-knowing self. [Long pause]

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.
