Instant Relaxation In 5 Minutes


While my main website is down for the count, I’ve resurrected my old blog on WordPress.com, SerendipitySmiles. It’s like coming home all over again…

Instant Relaxation

Slow down
notice
bring conscious awareness to your breath

Notice your inhale
is it shallow
is it deep
is it somewhere in between

No judgement
simply observe

Notice your exhale
is it short
is it long
is it somewhere in between

no judgment
simply observe

Stay with your breath
right here
right now

count each inhale
begin with 1
you may lose track

and that’s okay
begin from 1 again

stay here
stay connected to this moment

keep your mind focused
on this one thing
your breath

inhale “I am”
exhale “I am now”

you are here
you are now

take a deep inhale
imagine your breath
starting at your toes
traveling up your backside
notice your calves
become aware of your hamstrings
say hello to the small of your back
feel your spine
back of your neck
allow your breath to rest
on the crown of your head

allow and follow your exhale
as it leaves from the front of your body
releasing tension
stress, and worry

exhale
face exhales
throat exhales
solar plexus exhales
abdomen exhales
thighs and legs exhale
arms and hands exhale
feet exhale

become aware of your whole body
inhale as if your whole body is inhaling
exhale as if your whole body is exhaling

inhale awareness to the right side of your body
notice any tightness or tension as your internally scan
from the right side of your brain
through your face, shoulder, arm
hand, fingers, chest, ribcage,
right side of heart, right lung
abdomen, hip, leg, foot

No judgement
simply observe

Take 5 deep belly breaths as you continue
to internally scan the right side of your body

Ask the right side of your body if there’s
anything you need to know right now
Ask the right side of your body
if it needs your attention on a specific area
if you receive a response
allow your breath to travel there
allow your mind to follow your breath
allow yourself to see from behind your eyes
inhale awareness to the left side of your body
notice any tightness or tension as your internally scan
from the left side of your brain
through your face, shoulder, arm
hand, fingers, chest, ribcage,
left side of heart, left lung
abdomen, hip, leg, foot

No judgement
simply observe

Take 5 deep belly breaths as you continue
to internally scan the left side of your body

Ask the left side of your body if there’s
anything you need to know right now
Ask the left side of your body
if it needs your attention on a specific area
if you receive a response
allow your breath to travel there
allow your mind to follow your breath
allow yourself to see from behind your eyes

Take a deep relaxing cleansing breath
exhale with a sigh
feel the vibration of sound

inhale deeply
exhale with a sigh
notice where you feel the vibration of sound
in your body

allow your breath to settle into the space
where you feel the sound vibrating

inhale your arms to sky
exhale as you bring your palms together
connect your thumbs to your sacred heart space
take a deep belly breath
as you exhale lower your chin to chest
honoring yourself and the light that shins within

Namaste
