Here’s a Sample of the “Sleep Meditation – Curiosity Body Scan” Guided Meditation Script:

So, welcome back for another guided sleep meditation.
Taking some time to prepare your body and your mind for sleep.
In this guided practice today we’ll be doing another body scan meditation.

So, for this one you’ll want to find a position laying on your back, arms at your side or on your belly or chest.

And you can have your eyes open or closed.
If they’re open, just having a soft gaze towards the ceiling.
Or closing your eyes.

And for today’s body scan meditation it will be similar to the previous body scan but this time really focusing on developing curiosity.
So, really getting curious about what you’re feeling in each different part of the body.

And if there’s no feeling, then just allowing space for there to be no feeling.

And starting as we usually do with a few deep breaths.
So, breathing in deeply and breathing out slowly.
Releasing all tension from the body.
One more deep breath in and a deep breath out.

Relaxing and sinking.
Allowing yourself to come to a place of stillness.
Feeling the weight of gravity pull you down.

So, we can start this body scan at the top of the head.
So, bringing your attention to the crown of the head.
The area on top of the scalp and just rest it there for a while.

Noticing what sensations, you feel or experience.

Can you feel that area?
And what do you notice?
Is there any tingling or vibration?

If you feel nothing there, just making space for that as well.
There’s no need to force any feeling.
