Here’s a Sample of the “Sleep Meditation – Nothing to Do” Guided Meditation Script:

So, welcome to another guided sleep meditation. Go ahead and find a nice comfortable position in your bed. Laying down either on your back or your side or however feels comfortable.

We can start with a few deep breaths as usual. So, taking a deep breath in and a deep breath out. One more time. Deep breath in and a deep breath out.

And we can start off just by giving ourselves permission to be here, with nothing to do, nothing to accomplish. Nowhere we need to go.

At the end of the day, giving yourself this full permission to rest. Allowing yourself to put everything aside. Set down all the projects, all the tasks. And so, checking in with your body. And just seeing if there’s any tension or tightness that you can soften around.

Softening the muscles of the face. Softening the muscles around the eyes, the cheeks and the jaw. Loosening the shoulders. Letting the arms drop.

Can you really let go? Allowing yourself to melt into the bed. And from this place of stillness in the body, starting to tune into the feeling of your breath. Connecting with your anchor point.

That one spot either in the belly or the chest. Or at the entrance of the nostrils. Feeling the subtle sensations of the body. And now becoming aware also of your emotional state.
