Main Digest

Here is a method for a deeply calming relaxation exercise that borrows some techniques from both yoga and hypnotherapy.

Simply read this exercise in a very slow and calming way to a friend. They can be seated or led down, whichever they prefer. They may wish for you to subdue the lighting in order to enhance the ambiance. Let them decide what conditions best suit them. Once you have finished, swap roles and let them read this to you. By the end of it, you will both be more relaxed than you have felt in a long time!

...Now that you have got yourself comfortably relaxed...I would like you to now concentrate on your breathing...focus on your breathing...

...As you focus on your breathing...I would like you to look at a spot or point on the wall ...Any spot will do...it could even be an object...or a subtle blemish...Just focus your gaze on this spot and concentrate on this spot as much as you can...

(Pause for about a minute)

...I would like you to do this following breathing exercise to help you relax even deeper and deeper...I would like you to alternate breathing with your left and right nostrils...

...I would like you to following this pattern...

...Breathe in through your left nostril...and breathe out through your right nostril...

...Breathe in through your right nostril...breath out through your left nostril...

...Breathe in through your left nostril...and breathe out through your right nostril...

...Breathe in through your right nostril...and breath out through your left nostril...

...Repeat this cycle for a few moments...whilst continuing to focus on that point on the wall...

...And you will quickly find that your eyes are becoming more and more...heavy and tired as you relax deeper and deeper...So deeply relaxed...more relaxed than you have felt in a long time...

...Sometimes people experience slight distortions in their vision...seeing strange colors and shapes...If you experience this, then that is fine...Just continue to breathe alternating your nostrils...all the while gazing at that spot on the wall...

...And your eyes may now begin to feel very tired...heavy and tired...like at times when you try and stay awake...but struggle...The more you try...the more your eyes are wanting to close... Becoming heavier and heavier...More heavy and tired...as you deeply relax...

...Now allow your eyes to comfortably close...

...You may feel a pleasant wave of relaxation flow through your body and mind as you relax deeper and deeper with your eyes closed...

...And I would like you to know that it does not matter if your mind becomes so deeply relaxed that my voice drifts away...Your unconscious mind will still absorb all the suggestions that I give you...and my voice will travel with you wherever your mind wanders...

...I would like you to simply observe the colorful oily blackness of your mind...as you drift down to the center of your being...your subconscious mind rising...as your consciousness descends...

...And you can observe your subconscious and conscious minds rising and falling...like the waves in the ocean...by watching the oily colorful blackness move and swirl...as you become even deeper relaxed into the center of your being...Colourful random swirls...drifiting and flowing...so smoothly...

...And I would like you to know that you can enjoy this state of mind for as long as you wish...observing the swirling colors of you mind...

(Allow them a few minutes to enjoy this blissful relaxing state.)
