Mindfulness Podcast Episode 5 Transcript: Relaxing Light Meditation
For these trying times, I have decided to change my usual podcast, and provide you with a short guided meditation that I have written for you, which you can use to unwind and relax. I hope this little gift to you will allow you to center yourself, whenever you have a few minutes to spare.
But before we begin, I want to thank this week’s sponsor Anchor, without which this podcast would not be possible!
Relaxing Light Meditation
Sit in a comfortable position, with your feet on the ground, hands on your lap. Close your eyes, and inhale gently and calmly, in a rhythm that is comfortable to your body and abilities, focusing softly on each breath, without trying to change it, or
force it, but allowing it to unfold naturally. When you are ready, place your attention to your feet on the ground. As you feel them
below you, thank them for carrying you throughout the day, for being there, for doing all that they do each and every time you want them to.
Visualize a bright white light flowing from the ground beneath, into both of your feet, relaxing them, and warming them,
Allow the light to travel up toward your knees, feeling your lower legs and knees relax, as the light travels up your thighs and your hips. Feel your thigh muscles relax and let go of all tension, becoming loose, and soft. as the light travels across your stomach and torso, you relax more, while continuing to breathe softly and naturally, in a comfortable pattern. All of the tension that your body holding, is being released, and softened, while a comfortable warmth engulfs every aspect that is you.
Feel the soft light gently move up your shoulders, your neck, your jaw and feel all of the tension subside, as it travels toward the tip of your head. Your face eases into a soft smile, and the light travels from your shoulders to your elbows, through your wrists to the tip of your fingers, where it leaves you while your body stays warm, relaxed and comfortable.
Stay with that sensation as long as you would like, breathing calmly and at your own pace in a state of total relaxation. when you are ready, bring your attention back to your feet, and gently wiggle your toes, and begin to shift in your seat, as you continue to breathe with ease, and continuing to smile. Open your eyes, and gently rejoin your day.
