Guided Imagery Meditation Script
Start by taking a few deep breaths…. slowly…. and evenly…..remembering to let your belly rise as you breathe in…. and to let it fall as you breathe out
Remember to breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth…
Now return to your normal breathing, don’t try to change it, but keep breathing in and out, focusing on how your body feels at this moment. Feel the pace of your body becoming slower.
Do what makes you happy! In work, vacation, downtime, life decisions, social time, and everything else! You are the expert of your own life. As much as I love the work of counsellors, social workers, and psychologists, none of them can make you happy and give you the answers.

Or make it positive. Both are realistic as long as you believe it. Life is all about perception and belief.

You are calm, beautiful, wonderful, and peaceful
Now, this quote does not suggest that you can’t have things you want in life, however, when all you do is want peace, want calm, want health, then that’s all you will get. The wanting of all these things. Instead, try being all those things. Watch your words. Instead Continue reading
Everything is temporary. Thoughts, emotions, people, scenery. Do not become attached. Just flow with it.
