Whole body relaxation

  1. Lie comfortably on your back, with feet shoulder width apart and arms at about forty-five degrees from the body. Close your eyes.
  2. Inhale slowly, deeply and comfortably. Exhale slowly and release tension from the body. Repeat three times.
  3. As your eyes remain closed, begin to imagine in your mind’s eye that you are observing yourself with clear focus. You see all the parts of your body from the top of your head down to the tips of your toes.
  4. Continue to imagine that your head is becoming more and more clear and cool.
  5. Relax your facial muscles. Begin to form a gentle smile. With your mind’s eye, observe your smiling face.
  6. Relax your neck and shoulders. Imagine that stagnant energy is moving from your neck and shoulders out through your fingertips.
  7. Focus on your chest. Feel your chest begin to expand along with your breathing. Imagine your chest feeling cool and comfortable.
  8. With your mind’s eye, observe your waist and abdominal area, your thighs, knees, legs, ankles, and toes. As you continue to focus on your breathing and release tension, feel the comfort and quiet around these areas.
  9. As you become more and more relaxed, imagine your body feeling heavier and heavier.
  10. Continue to breathe normally. Now, as you exhale, feel your body begin to sink deeper and deeper into the earth as you become more and more relaxed.
  11. Imagine a very special place of peace, tranquility, and comfort just for you, provided by the whole universe.
