A Blissful Deep Relaxation Guided Meditation

About the Meditation

Relax your body, calm your mind, and soothe your spirit with this guided meditation lecture. Practicing meditation can help with greater mental clarity, resetting, and rebalancing every system in your body. It has a profound, rich, and calming effect, promoting feelings of peace and a sense of awareness.

This guided meditation lecture for ‘A Blissful Deep Relaxation’ will allow you to immerse yourself into a deep state of tranquility. We are often engulfed in our busy lifestyles — it not only tends to make it difficult for us to do things we truly enjoy but also distances from our own emotions.

This 20-minute practice will take you on a journey by completing mindful breath-work and gaining awareness on the present experience, enabling our brain to release endorphins that will help elevate your mood and have a positive effect on the whole body. During this meditation practice, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of any negative thoughts that may be overcrowding your mind.

It will guide you on a path on increasing awareness of yourself and your surroundings, encouraging a deeper relaxation in the body and mind. Mental and physical stress cause increased levels of the stress hormone called cortisol. This hormone is responsible for the presence of inflammatory chemicals such as cytokines. These can disrupt your overall wellbeing by advocating depression and anxiety, increasing blood pressure, and contributing to feelings of fatigue and brain fog.

By practicing this meditation, you will be triggering the body’s relaxation response. Your heart rate and breathing slow down, normalising the blood pressure so that the body can use the oxygen more efficiently.

If meditation is performed frequently, it will overtime restore the body to a calm state, helping it to repair itself more easily and prevent new damage from physical effects caused by stress. This practice will enhance your physical and emotional well-being. Starting from encouraging you to sit in an upright, seated posture.

Allowing your body to guide you into a place of comfort that is most suitable for you. By positioning your body this way, it sets an intention of balance for your meditation practice, by not being too tense and not too slack. A great meditation posture reflects a peaceful state of mind, yet the sense of being alert at the same time, resulting in perfect balance.

Further investigating the state of our physical bodies and our emotional mind, progressive muscle relaxation will release any tension that you may be holding onto. It will also guide you into a non-judgmental awareness of the here and now, such as focusing on the breath and giving your body the free rein to recognise its inherent spaciousness and freedom.

For best results, it is recommended to practice meditation daily. Regular practice can help to reduce everyday anxiety and stress, improve your sleep, energise your body and mood, and ultimately improve your overall health and wellbeing. So breathe in, and may you find stillness within.

The Guided Meditation

Welcome to StarLight Breeze meditations … Today, we will focus on a blissful deep relaxation … Let’s start today’s session by finding a nice, comfortable position … With your legs crossed and your spine extended, tall and proud … But not too tight … Chin slightly pulled towards the ground … Arms placed gently on your knees or in your lap … Whatever feels most comfortable for you …

And when you are ready, close your eyes … Bring full attention to this very moment … Preparing your body and mind to find stillness within … With openness … Patience … And curiosity … One day at a time … And now, bring your awareness to the breath … Feeling the rise and fall of the breath … Observing the way it flows in and out through your body

… And as you maintain this gentle awareness, take a deep breath in … Feeling the air flow in through your mouth … Expanding your lungs … And then letting it back out into your surroundings … Releasing it fully … There is no right or wrong way … Inhaling deeply … And out again …Softly inhale through your nose … Noticing the sensations of the air flowing in … Pulling the naval point toward the spine … Pause for a moment … And exhale, back out through the nose … Emptying your lungs …

And by following this deep breathing, you are combating fatigue … Stress … You are slowing down your nervous system … Allowing your body to relax … You are dissolving any excess emotionality … Recharging … Rejuvenating … And again … Breathe in … Pause … And breathe out … Noticing the inhale … Noticing the pause in-between the breaths … How it seems to have a life of it’s own … And letting everything go …

With gentle ease … Soft movement … Allowing your muscles to fall deeper and deeper into a state of relaxation … And at times, you may notice wandering thought arising … That’s okay … This is the simple nature of the mind … Don’t try to fight them, or judge them in any way … Just notice that your thoughts have strayed, and gently return your attention back to the breath … Each time we notice the mind wandering, we’re strengthening our ability to recognise this particular experience … Without any judgement, or frustration … Simply return to the breath …

And as you begin to settle … Allow your breath to return to it’s natural rhythm … Don’t try to force it or regulate it in any way … Just allow it to flow easily and naturally … Feel the weight of your body becoming heavy … Relaxed … Allowing all your muscles to loosen now … The muscles in your face — your forehead, between the eyebrows, nose, and cheeks … Soften your jaw … Your shoulders, arms, and legs … Let go of all tension … Allowing every part of your body to sink deeper into the surface beneath you …

And on your next inhale, become aware that everything you need to be happy is already present in this very moment … All of the conditions required for peace … Joy … Content … And as you continue to take these soft, gentle breaths … Bring to mind everything in life that is good and positive … Leave no room for any regrets of the past, or worries of the future … Become aware that you are here, very still in this moment …

Simply let go of any expectations … Grudges … Frustrations … Anxieties … All of our senses … Our sight … Sound … Smell … Taste … Touch … They deliver the gift of life … Of daily opportunity to create something beautiful … To be with the breath … To enjoy what’s already been given to us … To love all that surrounds us … Feel your body becoming relaxed … There are no distractions … No worries … Just you, and the breath … This is all you have to focus on right now … Breathing in … And breathing out … Increasing your self awareness … Focusing on the present … Muscles loosening … Your body slowing down … Breathing in … Breathing out …

And now … As we come to conclude this practice … Just take a moment to scan your body, from head to toe … Noting how you feel … Whether you feel different that the moment you began the practice … See if there are any changes in how you feel … And if anything stands out … Slowly beginning to move your toes, and your fingers … Take your time … There is no hurrying … Move your wrists, and your ankles … Gently stretch … Whatever you choose to do, make sure it’s gentle … Enjoying the waking movement of the body … And when you are ready, open your eyes … Welcoming back the world around you … We hope you enjoyed this meditation practice by StarLight Breeze, and may you have a wonderful day.
