A Peaceful Morning Practice Guided Meditation

StarLight Breeze Guided Meditations

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 Peaceful Morning Practice’ will prepare you for a wonderful day ahead. Meditation in the morning is highly encouraged as it sets the tone and rhythm of the entire day. The mind is quiet and fresh. By showing up early, you portray yourself that you intend to be in control of your day, instead of being pulled by any external circumstances that may cultivate stress.

This meditation will guide you to create a peaceful and calm mindset that you will bring into your daily activities by starting the day centred, aware, and in total serenity. You will explore staying mindful and attentive in the present moment, whilst deepening the physical movement of your breath. Deep breathing will allow you to feel more connected to your body, reaching a state of calmness.

This practice further explores a visualisation of being at the beach — using an extensive amount of imagery, it will take you on a journey whilst helping you to imagine yourself experiencing the sunrise.

The beach is a wonderful place that is associated with calmness and relaxation, as it offers direct contact with the energy of nature and its power of simplicity. Ocean waves generate negative ions, which are charged air particles known to promote mental energy and an overall more positive emotional wellbeing. The sounds activate your parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for slowing us down and allowing our bodies to relax, feeling more grounded.

Guided visualisation that is present throughout this script allows you to use your imagination to create the state you desire to be in, being able to alter your emotional state by changing your focus.

By engaging with the visualisation in this practice, you will certainly adapt a calmer state of mind, ready to begin the day in a peaceful and relaxed manner. Alongside this powerful visualisation technique, the script entails an instrumental production that resembles that of a seaside atmosphere — gentle waves crashing to the shore. Helping you to relax even further, promoting mental clarity, relief, and a generally improved mood.

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 peaceful morning practice … Gently settle yourself into a comfortable position … Perhaps sit with your legs crossed, chin tucked in slightly … Spine extended long and proud … Not too tight … Softly place your hands on your knees, either open or closed … Or you can place them in your lap, one cupped in the other … Whichever way feels most suitable for you today … And when you are ready … Allow your eyes to fall closed … Thanking yourself for giving yourself this moment of peace and quiet today … Away from the daily distractions … Responsibilities … As this is a time to recharge … To return to the quiet that’s already there, beneath layers and layers of thoughts that come and go … To find stillness in the midst of our busy lives … To slow down and take the necessary steps to be more introspective … To practice awareness that brings us back to the present moment … The moment that is the most important of all …

And as you sit here, gently following the rhythm of your breath … Rising, and falling … Begin to shift your attention to the energy of the breath … Just observing the sensations … Is your breath heavy? … Or light … Perhaps it’s more shallow, or deep … There is no need to judge the breath … Simply welcome it just the way it is … And as you maintain this gentle awareness on your breath, take a deep breath in, filling your body with air … Allowing your belly to expand outward … And release, out through your mouth … In again … Belly rising up to the sky … Feel your chest walls opening up … And breathe out … All empty … One last time, breathe in … Hold the breath for a few moments at the top … And release … Feeling the breath … Feeling the air … Noticing the way your breath returns to it’s natural state of flow … Gently rising, and falling … Guiding you moment by moment … Breath by breath …

And now that your body and mind are feeling relaxed … Your breath is settled … Picture an early summer morning … You are walking towards an ocean to green the sunrise … With your feet bare, you gently step upon the sand that is a very gentle hue of gold … You see the beach stretch alongside the water … The ocean is very calm … It is breathing … Just like you … It’s surface rising and falling with rhythmic ease … And as you get closer to the shore, you observe the small ripples, where gentle, peaceful waves roll in to meet the land … The sun hasn’t risen yet, but the sky is beginning to light ever so softly … Beautiful smudges of lavender, coral, and baby blue blended together to create a sight so comforting … So warm …You are enjoying this astounding view … And as you continue to feel your body fall deeper and deeper into relaxation, notice how the air feels …

Is it cool? … Pleasant? … There’s an ocean breeze coating your skin in a light mist as you approach the water … You watch the leaves of palm trees sway back and forth, gently dancing … Smell the fresh scent of the air … The scent of clean water and sand … It is so refreshing … So rejuvenating … And now, picture in your mind … The sound of the water lapping against the shore … Ever so gently … Hear the rustling of the palm trees sway … It is very early in the morning, and you are the only one here … Feel your presence … Feel the warmth in your heart as you welcome this peaceful moment into the beginning of your day … Breathe deeply here, near the gentle ocean …

And now notice that the sun is starting to rise … Golden petals stretching outwards into the rich blue … You can see a bright spot of light at the horizon, as if the sun is rising out of the water … And as you sit on the sand, that still feels a little bit cold, but refreshing … You watch the golden light grow … Small streaks of the brilliant light extend into the sky, as the sky grows lighter, and lighter … Welcoming the dawn … You begin to hear chirping birds in the distance … An invitation to a new day … You place your palms on the sand, and allow it fall through your fingers … You scrunch your toes, feeling it’s softness … You smile … You feel so relaxed here … Just you, and the rising sun … And everything feels just right …

You continue to watch the peaceful waves as they break some distance from the shore … They are gently lapping … Washing back and forth onto the sand … The waves are very calming … Very peaceful … Just like you, in this moment … Watch the waves flow like your breath … In, and out … Continue to observe the rhythm of the waves, flowing with the rhythm of your breath … Enjoying the sunrise … Still low in the sky …

Now … Begin to walk towards the water … Over the fine, cool sand … As you approach the shore, you can feel the mist from the ocean on your skin … It’s making you smile … You walk closer to the waves, and feel the sand becoming wet and firm … A wave crashes oner the sand towards you, touching your toes before receding … As you step forward, more waves wash over your feet … You are feeling playful … Excited … Free from any stress or worry … Take a deep breath here, and release any feelings of tension, allowing them to wash away with the ocean into the everlasting space … Allow all your stresses to melt away …

And finally, as the water continues to engulf your feet, the sun has fully risen … Filling the sky with brilliant shades of yellow, orange, violet, and blue … Allow the ribbons of light to surround your body … Relaxing it completely … The sun rays are infusing you with the energy you need to begin your day … Breathe gently into your heart centre … Radiating hope … A brand new beginning … Celebrating the start of a brand new day …

As this meditation comes to an end, take another deep breath in … And release … Feeling the rise and fall of the chest … Wiggle your fingers and your toes if you wish … Stretch your arms and legs in any way that feels comfortable for you … Returning to the sounds around you … Noticing them with gentle awareness … Welcoming sensations … Feelings … Thoughts … And when you are ready, open your eyes … We hope you enjoyed this meditation practice by StarLight Breeze, and may you have a wonderful day.
