Here’s a Sample of the “A Meditation for Boundaries: Imagining Your Inner Land” Guided Meditation Script:

Your inner land

This guided meditation is for helping you build healthy and purposeful boundaries.

When you make a healthy boundary for yourself then things that sometimes have hurt you in the past will not be able to reach you anymore.

Boundaries give to as well by providing some life essentials.

So, let's begin as we always by breathing together.

Take 5 deep breaths now with me to oxygenate your body, and all of its systems.

As you feel the weight of your body and how it presses down, make sure that your spine is completely straight, and your posture exudes that you are confident.

Gently close your eyes increasing your ability to focus.

As you breathe easily and gently you feel safe and relaxed, my voice guiding you is like a beacon of light through the darkness.

As the sun rises you see you are standing in beautiful lush green grass and there is a small house that you've built by hand in the middle of it.

meditation for boundaries, A Meditation for Boundaries: Imagining Your Inner Land

This house represents you and all the work that you put into yourself and the grass represents the world outside of you.

You decide that it would be good to plant some trees and some shrubs so that these plants will aid in protecting you from harm, and they also benefit the world.

For example, a Raspberry bush is very spiky and dense, yet it gives a bounty of fruits for us to enjoy and be nourished by.

If you plant many in a row, they will protect you as well as a tall electric fence, but this plant also gives.

It serves two purposes.

When you plant tall trees, they will protect you from harsh winds if placed in a way that is good through all of the seasons.

Tall trees supply us with the most oxygen therefore they are giving while also protecting.

The trees also serve many purposes here.
