The Snow Globe: A Guided Sleep Meditation and Visualization for Grown Ups


Welcome to Michelle’s Sanctuary. You are
listening to “The Snow Globe”: a guided sleep meditation and hypnotic story that
will allow you to be transported into the safe confines of a snow-kissed globe
and imaginary town that exists just for you. As you surrender you may find
yourself relaxed as the most creative chambers of your mind take you on a
journey into the night, offering whatever it is you may personally need to find
respite and healing during the sacred time for sleep. If you have not already,
please find the place where you a lie down and rest without interruption. A
place where you may get safe cozy and let go of all tensions of the day. You
have prevailed through so many days in this life overcoming obstacles and
getting better each and every day.The more that you learn and experience it in
all the time that has passed you have learned and grown in the body and with a
spirit that is uniquely yours and yours alone Taking this time to recognize your own
specialness. Living a life that only you have experienced from within and within
you. You may take note of a special place you go deeper and deeper within that is
reserved just for you a place where it’s safe to be creative and a dream to heal
yourself and to be in stillness. And as you snuggle down you may decide out any
tensions or holding you may have in your body right now. letting all these
feelings roll off your body like droplets of water cascading down a
glistening rock, feeling the strength within you because all the extraneous
noise is just that outside noise and inside yourself right now.
All that matters is your peace of mind and feeling good even if you pretend
your body will begin to accept this as your reality
letting out another sigh audibly if you like before taking a deep
inhale for one two three and now exhaling for three two one and inhaling
again for one two three letting the air cascade out for three two one
and one last time inhale for one two three and exhale maybe as if blowing
through a straw your lips tight together you let the air out for three two one.
Perfect. Imagining now if you will there is a
warmth emanating from your heart center you feel your heart beats and it is
surrounded by a globe of warm light radiating from the center of your
sternum and sending waves of amber light flowing like an incoming tide at sunset
this warmth spreading up your torso so the crown of your head down your spine
and out for your limbs and tingling from head to toe
and in this warmth that envelops you like a plush blanket like the rays of a
setting sun you may visualize that you are seated before a fire and nestled in
an overstuffed chair watching the flames that flicker before you, knowing it is
cold outside. You are warm indoors safe to dream and relax. Inhaling and
exhaling and if you are someone who loves animals there may be a pet curled
up at your feet nuzzling against you as you feel the
soft fur on your toes and the rhythm of your furry friend’s breath. Comfortable
and safe in this room you notice the snow falling outside your window as the
wintry winds howl, swirling around the walls of your home and you are safe from
the elements and enchanted by this magical storm. Your eyelids are heavy
your body sinking deeper and deeper down. In front
of you is a glass coffee table upon which rests a snow globe and the snow globe has been with you
since your earliest of memories it has been in your life so long that you
cannot imagine a winter without it decorating your home with its whimsical
magic and you pick up this glow watching as the amber flames in the fireplace
behind the coffee table cast a golden light on the snow globe in your hand
you sit transfixed shaking this glass or and watching the snow fall through out
your eyes feeling so heavy so tired closing as if to dream. A dream
within a dream and like Alice Through the Looking Glass you find that when you
touch her hand against the glass orb of the snow glow that you me transport
through it your fingers easily sliding through and becoming smaller when passed
through the other side and it feels as if you’re sliding through a translucent
jelly rather than glass feeling intrigued and invigorated you
take a deep breath and prepare to take a new adventure intuitively knowing that
you are safe and may return to the warm confines the overstuffed chair that hugs
you next to your furry pet whenever you so desire you just need to wish it and
it is because right now you may manifest anything you want to happen you are in
control and your hands go first as you delve into the world of the snowglobe
passing through the exterior before becoming a part of this new fictitious
world perhaps you had this fantasy before as a small child at a time when
you’re young imagination was boundless and the thought of living in this tiny
world would occur whenever you shook this magical glow as you feel your body it is at first
heavier has it become smaller when entering this new world until you
readjust and look around all physical pressure being release your
body suddenly feels so light and carefree and in this glow this new world
you feel how safe you are how all external concerns and chatter are gone as if your mind has gone silent
and you’re in the stillness protected from all negativity and all distraction
and all the discomforts you may have ever experienced in your waking life
inside this globe you’re free to be silly and to just exist for the sole
pleasure of being because just being yourself is enough right now and we’re
the snowflakes that surround you you slowly float down to the village below
the wind gently carrying you with no need for a parachute you just glide
across the cobblestone streets of the hamlet and land and upon landing you
feel a sense of home all along this special place has been waiting
for you and is designed for your own joy and as your own sanctuary much like the
deep part of yourself you may say for you protected from anything or anyone
else so too does this little world offer you a sense of safety and it is
nightfall once you settle into the sidewalk and are greeted by the
Dickensian atmosphere of a time gone by and newsboy runs past you and gives a
smile before ducking behind a gas lit street lamp ahead
his smile urges you to smile as well as you frolic in the snow you find yourself
adorned in clothing of a different era feeling warm and cozy in the long wool
coat and fluffy scarf around you the festivities of the town are in full
swing as a charitable energy takes hold and you walk past a row of food carts
offering cinnamon doughnuts and hot cocoa and almond croissants as an
offering from the townspeople you are invited to choose whatever you desire to
nosh on as you explore the snow-covered streets
of the town and you feel as though you are being celebrated as a guest that the
townspeople have been waiting for for quite some time and the individual
lights they’re being lit set a glow one at a time
illuminating the walk towards the town square and you notice the wreaths that
hang from them with a red velvet clothes and the smell the wet snow and balsam
fir meet your nose and you listen to a group of carolers passing by openly
smiling their song of tidings in your direction and you realize just like all
the living cells in your body that exist simply to keep you alive so to do all
the moving parts and life within this snow globe everything in this magical
world protect it from the outside by a glass dome above exists only for you it
is meant to heal you right now and at this time all that matters is your
relaxation and your bliss in the center of this Town Square is an
ice-skating rink where families in their old-timey winter attire their hands
cloaked inside fur muffs, have locked their arms as they glide across the ice
and pure enjoyment and you to feel inspired to join them looking down to
your feet and just by the power of thought your vintage boots are
transformed into ice skates and you approach the ice and even if you do not
remember skating well before in this safe glow all actions are intuitive and
with grace you take to the ice effortlessly extending your arms to your
side as if flying through the snow as a flake lands upon your lips and you taste
the metallic coolness and smile feeling each skate as it lightly scrapes across
the ice and propels you forward you feel your own vitality the aliveness that
flows from head to toe feeling the best you have ever felt in this body
connect it and into with every part of yourself as you skate across the silvery
white ice as the snow continues to fall no part of your body is being taken for
granted as you feel all the working parts that enable you to enjoy this gift
within the globe and you savor the kind and familiar smiles of the townspeople
the way those you skate by and after one more last lap around the rink you feel
ready to find respite for the night and exit the ice notice they go once again
your skates magically transform into warm boots that cushion each step as you
crunch through the freshly fallen snow intuitively you continue around a curvy
cobblestone street named Cordial Lane, winding around towards the home that
awaits you in this dream within a dream the middle three-story building among
succession of brick row houses is whitewashed and has marine blue shutters
with candles lit in each window a wreath of thick blue spruce branches adorns the
mahogany door hanging above a brass knocker and your initials and you climb
the stone stairs that lead to your front door which opens automatically as you
approach the snowflakes are falling down in an open lesson hue as you look to the
sky one last time on this quiet street watching as the friendly neighbor walks
his dog and nods goodnight stepping inside this home
continues to feel like you are stepping into a time capsule of a simpler time you enter the foyer and are presented
with carved wooden stair with a Victorian style banister that would be
delightful to slide down when morning comes it gives you a child likely to
know that this is all yours to do with as you like and with the power of your
imagination your winter attire transforms into cozy pajamas and
slippers as you make your way up the antique
stairs feeling a solid wood beneath your feet as you ascend it is hard to believe
this is all but a dream within a dream continuing to go up each step one two
three four five six before reaching a landing and continuing on seven eight
nine ten eleven twelve reaching the Hall of the second
floor or you walk towards the master bedroom and in this room you notice a
four-poster bed nearly floating above the floor the marble fireplace is all
aglow across the room and seated next to the fire is your pet should you have a
pet who lovingly welcomes you with a contented sigh jumping to join you in
the plush bed with a burgundy velvet comforter and king-sized pillows hoisting yourself upon the bed
you instantly sink into its plushness as if atop the marshmallow fluff of hot
cocoa looking out to see the ivory snow glittering against the gas lights
outside your white trimmed boxed windows in the bedroom you inhale and exhale realizing how safe and protected you are
and the snow glow of fantasy in this dream within a dream
in this home within a snow globe within an imagined home so many layers as you
go deeper and deeper down and deeper within getting to the heart of this
experience going down down opening new doors and discovering more like a
Russian nesting doll where a doll is within a doll for your mind this
experience is the same thought within a thought just letting go and surrendering
to this experience know that many portals may await you and you are free
to roam wherever you would like to go through time and space
to old memories or forward in time to meet your future
self all is fluid and all is possible if you dare to imagine right now protected
from the elements outside protected from all that is no longer needed and is no
longer serving you and looking to the right of the bed on an antique cast-iron
bed stand breasts another snow globe that you lift and shake feeling
hypnotized watching again as the snow falls down within the glow and you may
see yourself from the outside looking in seeing how happy you are how free you
are to make choices and day adventures and fully embrace the miracle of being
life of being uniquely you of knowing that you are supported and you are loved
you are cared for and you are able to plug into this great energy source that
may heal you and guide you towards all that you see as you inhale and exhale warm and nestled beneath the
weighted blankets of this four-poster bed you set the snow globe back down on
the bed stand and close your eyes feeling as if two tiny silk pillows
containing sand have been placed atop your eyelid weighing them down allowing
you to surrender to feel the tiredness that overwhelms you as you are ready to
fall asleep the fire crackling in the fireplace next to you the visions of you
frolicking in the snow gliding across the ice and enjoying the clean fresh air
and all the beauty that winter may bring you have earned this respite this cozy
warm and it’s time to fall asleep down down freely surrendering like the drifts
of snow that’s surrender to the howling winter winds going deeper and deeper
down sinking further and further into the bed letting the dreams to come dance across
your heavy eyelids for you to continue on this wintery journey until the sunrays
fill your room in the morning and welcome you to a new day or now is the
time to let go for you to let your imagination play as it guides you towards
the sweetest of dreams. And I’m going to count you down towards asleep letting go
