Hello and welcome to another episode of Grounded in Stillness which is part of the time out series.
Change, it is something we are all too familiar with at the moment. For many our entire routine has changed and change takes time to adapt to.
This relaxation focuses on the idea of change, because change is constantly happening within us. Be this physically or mentally. However the main change that happens in our body which can anchor us back to the present moment is our breath. How it changes from breathing in to breathing out and visa versa.
So I hope you enjoy this opportunity to sit and observe change.
Find yourself a comfortable position, sitting or laying the choice is your.
Adjust your body into place.
Feel how your body begins to relax into a comfortable position.
Allow your eye lids to softly close.
Relax your jaw.
Breathe in deeply, breathe out deeply.
Let your arms and legs feel heavy in place.
Give yourself a moment to stop today.
Enjoy the in breath and the out breath.
Begin to feel each in breath.
Begin to feel each out breath.
How the in breath changes to the out breath.
How the out breath changes to the in breath.
Take a moment to sit with that small change which is forever in your body.
How does the change of the breath make you feel.
Does the in breath allow your body to feel alive and open.
Does the out breath allow your body to feel heavy and for you to just let go.
Feel the change that happens between the in breath and the out breath.
As you breathe, take the time to sit with the change of the breath.
Observe how change makes you feel.
Just breathe and connect to the change of your breath inside your body.
Take one more deep breath in, deep breath out.
Allow your breath to return to its natural rhythm.
Gently wiggle your fingers and your toes.
Slowly open your eyes when you feel ready.
Thank you for listening.
