Here's a snippet from this guided sleep meditation:

Sleepy Train Ride (20 Min Visualization Meditation)

Hello, and welcome to this meditation. I am going to guide you into a restful sleep by taking you on a relaxing train ride through the beautiful countryside. Find a comfortable position now and make sure that you will not be disturbed so that you get a restful sleep.

Get as comfortable as you can now, and at any time along the way you need to reposition yourself to get even more pleasant sleep, you can do so. Begin to let go of all the tension you build up throughout the day. Any worries you accumulated seem to lose their power and intensity as you settle down for the night.

Feeling cozy now, allow your breath to begin to slow down with each breath you take. Take a nice full breath in… and slowly exhale. Letting your breath return to normal now, just observe your mind and how it is thinking of various things about your life and your day. Observe how perhaps visuals of moments flash in your mind or maybe you feel them, you may be able to hear sounds with your thoughts as they present themselves.


(Pause for 10 seconds)

Letting images from your life fade now, bring into your imagination that you are walking towards a long train that is parked along the countryside. The engine of the train is stopped at an old station in the middle of nowhere, and the long train extends into the horizon. You are walking several sections back, and you notice an open wagon. You see the workers getting ready to depart, and steam is billowing out from the engine. You hop on the open wagon and find it is filled with fresh hay. You hear the train horn blowing, and the sounds of distant voices calling “all aboard”.

You lie down in the hay and it is perfectly comfortable. You are positioned in a way that you are gazing out the open door into nature. As you sit back, waiting for the train to begin to roll, you look around the wagon and notice all the details. The weather is perfectly mild, and soothing. Perhaps you can sense the smell of hay and the countryside breeze. Notice everything as vividly as you can.

You feel slight vibrations as the train powers up, and you can hear its mighty engine hissing as it builds enough power to pull the massive weight. Soothing station bells begin to ring, alerting that the train is leaving the station. The wagon begins to roll, very slowly, and you take a deep, breath of relief because you know you are in for a long, relaxing ride...
