A Guided Meditation for Healing

Guided Meditation Step #1:

Sit comfortably in a quiet place and allow yourself to notice your breathing. Slowly inhale for a count of four, hold your breath for a count of four, and exhale for a count of four.

Guided Meditation Step #2:

Repeat several times, pausing in between, and allow your body to become more settled. Feel free to shift your sitting position to get more comfortable.

Guided Meditation Step #3:

Now picture a color that you find calming and soothing.   Imagine inhaling this color through your nose as a mist. Let this colored mist swirl throughout your body, starting with your head.

Guided Meditation Step #4:

Allow the mist to work down your chest and throughout your core. Let the mist trickle down your limbs to your fingers and toes. Allow the colored mist to resonate and vibrate throughout each little part of your body, bathing you in a healing and loving light.

Guided Meditation Step #5:

Picture this mist swirling around and centering at your heart as it becomes more concentrated in color. Feel the warmth and allow this mist to envelop you in self-love and healing. Notice now how this feels to you.

Guided Meditation Step #6:

Continue this breathing for a few minutes or for as long as you wish.

For this quick and easy practice tip, you will need five sticky notes and your favorite pen or marker. Write down five quick, straightforward messages that can help remind you of your worth and prompt you to practice self-love. Here are some ideas if you need help:

  • I am learning to love myself every day.
  • Self-love is a journey. I’m ready to start now!
  • I can learn self-love by paying attention to what I think is important.
  • My feelings and thoughts matter.

Put these notes on your mirror, in a notebook, or any place you will see them whenever you need a reminder of your self-worth.
