Please, close your eyes to enhance your relaxation…
Breathing… settling into your body… feeling supported by the surface below…
Inhale… feeling your body expand with air… and exhale… relaxing even more…
Now, become aware of your entire body as a whole… imagine you can see yourself from an outside perspective being completely relaxed and calm… listening to this session…
You notice your legs are very relaxed… as well as your arms…
Your head is supported by a pillow, or cushion…
The neck too can fully let go of any tension...
You can see your chest and abdomen gently rising and falling with the breath…
Feeling the mattress or chair making contact with your entire backside…
See how still you are, calm and serene… you have nowhere to be right now and no one needs your attention… fully let go and melt into relaxation…
Now, begin to picture a white light bathing you all over your body… it has a golden glow, and is very soothing… very comforting ...
