So here’s the first of my favorite meditations, since I’m in bed and can’t quite manage to turn my mind off enough to sleep. For those of you who, like me, lie down and can’t stop just thinking, this one’s for you!
The Can’t Sleep Shower Meditation
After you read through and understand these simple instructions, you will go take a warm or hot shower for as long as you like. As you let it relax you, remember to try the visualizations in this meditation.
1. Immerse yourself in the cascading water. Feel the warmth of the shower soothe and relax you.
2. Imagine that the water isn’t just cleansing your physical dirt, but all your emotional dirt as well. All that stress, anger, fear, any and all negativity, feel the water wash that off and out of you. All your worries of the day, all your projects and concerns, let them gently wash away too for the night.
3. Picture in your mind the water in the shower turning dark and even black with the amount of stress, worries, thoughts, concerns it is washing off you.
4. When you feel complete, step out and wrap yourself in a fluffy towel or robe, knowing that all your cares of the night are now rinsing down the tub drain.
Go Right to Sleep!
