How would it feel to be the person you were
before all this stuff happened? How would it feel to tell you, you can be
happy again, smile, laugh and do the things you loved to do?
I am here to tell you that it is possible, to the point where you
won’t want to be the person you are now ever again.
This could be seen as an outrageous claim, though I can tell you
that I, personally have reached this achievement myself.
Through listening to this guided meditation before sleep or during rest time
on a regular basis, it will lift your mood, make you feel more positive and
open your mind to the new possibilities that YOU possess!
Please set yourself down in a relaxed position, preferably laying down, make sure there
are no distractions as this will be a very powerful experience.
So powerful, that in this relaxed state you will find your subconscious will
take over listening, helping to change the way you think into a much more positive way. First of all, think of a happy memory you
have in the timeframe of the person you used to be.
Using all your focus as if you were there, concentrate on the scene you see as if it
were happenning right now. As your mind is set on this memory,
utilize every sense you have, sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.
Take a moment to absorb everything and really feel as if you were there. Take notice of your body, have your shoulders
dropped slightly, are you smiling, has your breathing changed?
Meditating on this scene brings out positive feelings from your mind to your body.
To achieve a relaxed state all you have to do is remember how you feel when thinking
about this memory. From doing this simple action brings immediate
results, the more you experience these feelings of happiness
the more your mind and body will want to show you that you can be happy again. Now it is time to take this feeling to a deeper
level, as if planting a seed that will grow in your mind.
Imagine you are in an empty room, there is nothing here except a door, this can be seen
as a clear mind, here, there is nothing to think or worry about.
Again, focus on your interpretation of this room, remember there it is empty.
Now that your mind is clearer and you feel more relaxed, walk towards the door in this
room. Pulling the handle down and opening it to
see a staircase that goes down to another floor.
At the bottom of this staircase is the memory you were focused on and thinking about before.
The stairs are softly illuminating and there is a rail to hold onto.
You are safe, relaxed and calm. There are 20 steps down to the bottom of these
stairs, when I say I would like you to take the first step down.
With each step down, you relax further, you become calmer and your breathing becomes deeper.
Counting you down, take your first step. 20
A wash of calmness spreads from head to toe. 19
your face muscles relax 18
your neck feels free 17
Any tension in your shoulders evaporates 16
your arms untense and unwind 15
your hands and fingers soften, letting go of any tension

with each deeper breath 13

10 your calf muscles feel heavier
9 your ankles deliver deliberate actions to
each next step down 8
your feet almost feel as if they are pulling the rest of your body
7 your whole body heavy and relaxed
8 your mind is clear and focused
7 your eyes drift as your body automatically
heads downwards 6
with each descending step you feel calm 5
with each step down you are relaxed 4
with every descent your breathing becomes looser
3 every downward movement feels heavier and
you relax further and become calmer 1
now, you are fully relaxed and feeling very free Having reached the bottom of this staircase,
infront of you is a room. It is very open and has all the positivity
of the happy memory you have been thinking back on.
Right here, right now you can touch, taste, see, hear and smell the atmosphere
of that scene. This is a happy and positive place that perhaps
you think about alot and want to experience again.
There may be differences from then to now, just concentrate on how YOU feel about this
setting, this is where YOU are. Experience the dropped shoulders of this moment,
the smiling, the laughing, the life in your eyes and how much joy this moment
brought to you. The warmth in your chest is a signal that
this moment is who you really are and want to be.
Feel your facial muscles move in time to the happiness of this experience, a much lighter
time, as if care free.
Welcome these feelings with open arms as you feel the energy of this moment.
Spend some time absorbing this atmosphere, let your mind and body know it is ok to feel
happy. Having spent time revisiting some old feelings
that were slightly lost you feel re energized knowing that they can resurface again and
bringing those positive feelings back. Take a mental picture of this moment, remember
the way you feel right now and how calm and relaxed you
are. Feelings can be hidden due to circumstances
in life sometimes, causing a daisy chain of misrepresented reality. Through remembering
this experience with how your mind and body positively
reacted you can bring this feeling back at any time.
Having taken the positive energy from this scene and absorbed it into the essence of
yourself, you take it with you as you head back to the empty room
where you can reflect on this. When I say, take your first step up the staircase
and with each step up, you will feel lighter and calmer.
Place your first foot on the staircase and move up each step.

to this audio you will take the mind and muscle memories with you.
