Self Love 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 ‘Self Love’ is a practice that will lead you on a path to reconnect with your heart. Self Love is a remarkable thing. It allows every individual to reach an inner peace that can be called upon at any time. Taking some time out of your day to focus on building positive feelings towards yourself will lead you to a more harmonious and a joyful life.

This practice encourages you to settle yourself away from any potential distractions, introducing you to the present moment by following the breath and embracing each thought or sensation without putting labels on them. There is a deep breathing exercise that will allow your body and mind to fully immerse into relaxation, bringing you into a state of total calm.

This will further reduce stress levels in the body, lowering your heart rate and blood pressure, having a profound effect on your state of mind. Through gentle and mindful awareness, you will be guided to appreciate yourself for just being you and shift your awareness of treating your body as your home.

We are designed to be living in and from our bodies, being able to feel what’s going on inside them moment by moment. Our bodies are our internal home base — the gateway to the present moment. This meditation further allows you to explore the physical and mental state that you are in, encouraging you to tune into the here and now without dwelling on the past or thinking about the future.

Building a greater sense of connectedness with yourself and with those around you will allow you to experience an overall increase in health, abundance, love, and joy. Genuine intimacy begins inside every one of us and it is through a sense of self-believe that a reliable and confident connection occurs.

If you maintain a kind and loving environment, the connection will be able to flourish more freely and become better integrated into our lives. 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 self love … As you settle yourself into a comfortable, seated position, allow your breath to guide you today … Gently inhale through the nose … Steadily filling your lungs with air … And exhale … As you continue your steady breathing … Move your attention to how your torso expands … As you inhale steadily … How it contracts … As you let the air empty out of you … Allow yourself some time to become in tune with your soft movements … With the steady rhythm of your breathing … Constant and reliable …

When you are ready … Gently close your eyes … Still aware of how your body is moving with each new breath … With every inhale, you breathe in relaxation … With every exhale, your shoulders drop and your body relaxes … Take a moment to truly listen to your body as it is now … Noting which parts are comfortable, and which are not … Looking for any sensations that are present … Welcoming these sensations just as they are … Without any judgement … Observing their appearance … Feeling how you are connected with your surroundings … Breathing in … And breathing out … Feeling your body connect more and more with the surface underneath you … Your muscles relaxing …

As your lungs are emptied again … Open your mind to any thoughts that come up naturally … Not grabbing at them … But giving them a moment to simply be there … Before letting them drift off to make space for the next … Observing these thoughts just as if they were clouds passing by in the sky … Coming and going … Changing their shapes and sizes … And then dissolving into the atmosphere again …

And now … We will repeat a short breathing cycle … Breathing in through the nose for a count of five … Holding for a count of five … And breathing out through the mouth for a count of seven … Letting everything go … When you are ready … Breathe in … Two … Three … Four … Five … Hold … Two … Three … Four … Five … And breathe out … Two … Three … Four … Five … Six … Seven … Empty all concern … All discomfort … And again … Breathe in … Two … Three … Four … Five … Hold … Two … Three … Four … Five … And breathe out … Two … Three … Four … Five … Six … Seven … And one last time … Breathe in … Two … Three … Four … Five … Hold … Two … Three … Four … Five … And breathe out … Two … Three … Four … Five … Six … Seven …

Empty your lungs of all air … Releasing any holding on in this moment … Allowing the breath to return to it’s natural, steady rhythm … There is no pressure … No pushing … Just allowing the breath to guide you now … Rising and falling … Gently shifting your attention to the body now … Noticing if you are feeling any different … And if anything stands out, wanting for your attention … Staying present in this moment … Scanning your body … Allowing your attention to stay here for a few more moments … Becoming still … Soothing your mind …

And now … I want you to place both of your hands over your heart … Continuing to inhale through the nose … And exhaling out through the mouth … Ask yourself … How does it feel to place both of these hands over the heart centre … Over this tender area … Where you experience love for yourself and others … For the whole world around you … Focusing on the breath … Focusing on nurturing your body and mind … It’s important to take care of yourself … But in the midst of many responsibilities, to-do lists, busy schedules … Sometimes we forget to just simply relax … Be with our own thoughts … Enjoy our own company … When we take care of ourselves, it affirms our self worth …

It is a gentle reminder that we are deserving of this rest … Of this peace … Of calming the the mind and living in the present moment … And by listening to this meditation, you are already dedicating your well deserved time towards taking care of your body and mind …

Self love can be expressed in many ways … Perhaps taking a bath, drinking more water, going on a walk, reading a good book, or cooking a healthy meal … But as much as we take care of our external environment, we must pay attention to our internal environment too … It is just as important, if not more …

Your body is your home … A place of safety, security, and protection … A home is where you live … It’s a place where you can relax, learn, grow, and simply be … Express love for your home, and life will grant you with endless possibilities to flourish … To prosper … To thrive … To love yourself endlessly and unconditionally … Self love is a lifelong journey …

Allow yourself to be fully present with your breath and your heart … Appreciate the fullness of being alive, as you experience feelings of eternal care and love towards your body and mind … Give yourself permission to see growth and potential in every moment … Feel more grace and ease with every breath you take … At any given circumstance, know that you are in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment …

And now … Repeat the following affirmations quietly to yourself after me …

I love and accept myself

Everything I am looking for, I can find within me I am inspiring

I believe in myself and my abilities

I will celebrate my small wins

I will be at ease and enjoy simple moments

I am grateful for my life

I can do it all, but not all at once

I feel energetic and alive

There is a bright side to every situation

Every part of me that makes me who I am is encompassed with love I love myself unconditionally

Before you continue your day … Congratulate yourself for taking the time to relax your busy mind … To nourish your body in such a beautiful way … Whenever you are ready, slowly begin to wiggle your toes … Move your head from side to side … Stretch in any way that feels right to you … And open your eyes … Welcoming the world around you … Believing that today, you will be open to every opportunity of peace and joy within and outside of you … We hope that you enjoyed this meditation practice by Starlight Breeze, and may you have a wonderful day.
