This is a guided meditation for relaxation and positive self-esteem. You absolutely deserve these few minutes of self-care, and it’s quite healthy to your spirit to take this time to nurture yourself. So, welcome! Throughout this guided relaxation, we will be focusing on relaxing tension in your body and calming your mind with positive thoughts. First, begin by making your body comfortable. Dim or turn off the lights. Lie down or sit down somewhere where you can relax without being disturbed. Allow your hands to rest quietly by your side.
Or they can rest gently on your thigh. If you want to, close your eyes. Or if you prefer, you can watch the relaxing images in this video. Become aware of your breathing. Is it fast? Is it slow? Feel the air as you breathe in and out. Is it cool? Is it warm? Just let yourself be aware of it. Each time you breathe out, you’ll start to notice that you feel a little calmer as the tension begins to leave your body. And each time you breathe in, you’ll notice a warm relaxation starting to spread
throughout you. It starts in your toes with a little warm tingle. It spreads to your feet and up your legs. Your legs may be starting to feel a little heavy. That’s okay. Just let them rest. Feel the relaxation travel across your hips to your stomach. And from your stomach to your chest. Feel the warmth spread to your shoulders. Every place that it touches begins to relax. You may notice that your breathing is a
little slower now. Feel the warmth travel from your shoulders down your arms to
your fingers to the very tips of your fingers. Now the warm wave of relaxation travels
up your neck. It goes over your lower face and lower jaw, across your lips. And
you feel the tension leave your face. You may even feel a little bit like yawning.
That’s okay. Let yourself yawn. The feeling of relaxation travels across your cheeks and eyelids to your forehead and top of
your head. Everything is warm and comfortable and
relaxed. Your mind might be drifting a little bit,
and that’s okay. That’s perfectly fine. Let your mind drift. There’s no need to
focus on what I’m about to tell you. Just let the words float in your mind
without judgment. You are worthwhile. Your life is special and meaningful. You are strong. But if you’re having trouble handling things, it’s okay to get help. Getting help does not make you weak. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be loved. You are enough. Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be at peace with yourself. While your mind is still relaxed and calm
and drifting, listen to the following self affirmations. Allow yourself to
accept these affirmations as true. Repeat each one silently to yourself. I am worthwhile. My life is special and meaningful. I am unique and original, and I appreciate that. I am a decent person. I am likeable. I deserve happiness. Like every human, I have flaws. And that’s
okay. I deserve love. My thoughts and beliefs have value. I am capable of doing wonderful things. I contribute positive things to the world. It’s okay to take care of myself. It’s okay to nurture myself. I accept myself as I am It’s okay for me to like myself. Allow yourself to feel good about who
you are. Let these affirmations drift through your mind. Don’t think too hard.
Don’t examine them. Just accept them and allow them to be. And for the rest of the day, let these positive feelings flow through your mind. And in the future, know that you can always return, either within your mind to these positive affirmations, or you can return to this meditation video
and listen to it again. The more you hear these affirmations, the more you will accept them. I am going to count from 5 to 1. When I reach 1, you will be fully alert
and ready to continue your day. 5… 4… You’re starting to feel more alert. 3… 2… Even more alert. 1 Thank you for listening.
