Please sit and concentrate for a moment.
In this exercise we are going to try both
self-hypnosis and meditation and see the difference. Let’s start with
hypnosis and I am going to ask you to count down from 10 to 1 where 10
is your entering awareness and 1 is located in the still, silent depths
of your subconscious. Imagine you are walking into a room filled with
books, it is silent, peaceful and tranquil. Let’s start 10,9,8 – see the
numbers and feel them taking you deeper and deeper. 7,6,5 – silent,
still. 4,3 – deeper and deeper 2,1 .. Now you are deep in your
subconscious, the books all around you are all the past habits of your
life. Some are very positive and some are not. Just sit for a while and
feel the peace here. If you find yourself distracted count down again
from whatever starting point you need to get to 1. 3,2,1 deeper and
Take the time to really just sit and soak in the
feeling here. Thank all of these books for helping you so far in your
life. They have worked so hard for you and you are the author of every
one of these books, of every one of these habits, and so you feel very
Then whenever you are ready go to the shelves and
find a really positive book. Read the title and you will know the whole
contents. What is it about? Take your time. Count down again if you need
to, if you lose focus
Then let’s go and look at some of the books you
have written that might not be so positive. Some of your negative
habits. Take your time and just choose one. Before you look at the
title, thank this book, it was written by you at a time in the dim dark
past when that was the best you knew. Accept it, offer your gratitude
and then read the title. Count down again if you need to. What is it
about? You know the contents. Why did you write that book? Did someone
teach you that story? Explore it some more, read every page if you need
to. See how that habit makes you feel. See what triggers that book. What
feelings do you have to have before this habit kicks in.
Then gently and calmly we are going to rewrite that
book. Begin with the trigger and reflect upon an affirmation that
increases the unconditional flow of love in your life. Count down again
if you need to. Contemplate what would be the highest outcome for this
trigger. Ask for guidance from your heart, if you need help. See the old
pages being blanked out as you get ready to write. This old habit is
about to be rewritten. Feel calm and at peace, then taking the pen in
your hand, slowly and deliberately write out your new affirmation. See
each letter, each word being written so beautifully upon the page. And
then write it again on the next page. And again on the next. Now it is
becoming effortless as though you are just watching it being written.
You see the ink flowing over page after page. And finally the book is
complete. And you return it this time to a new shelf where your best
Now I would like you to join me in meditation. We
are going to walk up some stairs to a beautiful room at the top of this
house. As I count from 1 to 7 you are going to feel yourself climbing
the stairs and leaving your subconscious and entering deep into your
heart, deep into the present moment. There is no more past or future,
just this moment now.1,2,3 At the top there is nothing but a white room
with glassless windows in every direction. 4,5
It feels to you as though you stretch in every
direction you look. 6,7 That you have infinite possibilities and eternal
time. And every where you feel infinite love.
Just sit and be still and soak in the peace and
space and love here. Feel it pouring through you. You are complete.
Connected with every one and every thing.
If your mind wanders just count up again from
wherever you feel you should start from. 4,5,6,7
I am going to count up again and I would like you
to feel that you are loving more and more powerfully with every number.
Start by remembering the most loving experience you can remember and
then I would like you to open that up and radiate that love to other
people and friends in your life. 8,9,10,11,12
Sit in that love. 10,11,12,13,14 Count up again and again. 13,14,15 Opening
your love to your pets, to strangers, to your garden, your house, your
car, to the forests and trees and oceans.
Feel the power of your love in this present moment.
In this now.
When you are ready – you can begin to relax and
contemplate your meditation experience. You might see the numbers
floating by as you leave the deepest meditation state. 10, 9, 8, 7,6,5
When you are ready 4,3,2,1 – relax, open your eyes
and your meditation is finished.
