Guided meditation for the Sacral Chakra
Take a moment to make yourself comfortable, either seated or lay down.
Take 3 deep breaths and begin to turn your attention inward.
Begin to imagine your ideal day, a day with no commitments or 'to do' lists.
A day with no rush, where everything moves at a relaxed pace.
A day all to yourself.
A day enjoying everything that brings you pleasure.
A day with no guilt of putting yourself first.
How does your day start?
Do you wake up early or have a lazy morning?
What would breakfast be?
How do you fill your morning?
would you choose to be outdoors? or cosy up inside?
As we head for the afternoon, think about lunch.
What foods make you feel good?
Do you eat quietly, or is it a TV meal?
What follows next?
What do you wish you had time to do but never seem to?
As day leads to evening, what would your favourite meal be?
Would you cook or have it made?
How would your evening look?
How would you prepare your mind and body for sleep?
Visualise your perfect bedtime routine.
Visualise yourself getting into bed and drifting off for a perfect nights sleep after your perfect day.
Take a moment now to choose just one thing from this perfect day, and make a commitment to yourself that you will carry out this one activity today, with no guilt for making time to yourself.
Knowing that you are worth this.
