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
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
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
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
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
With every breath I take, it becomes easier and easier to contact my
I am now in complete communication with my all-wise, all-knowing self.
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, 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.
