Although I Grieve for What I Lost, I Know That a Greater Good Will Follow.
Begin by finding a comfortable position in which to sit or lie down. Allow yourself to relax, taking a few deep breaths in, and as you exhale, let go of any tension or stress. Feel your body become lighter and more at ease with each breath.
As you continue to breathe, focus on the sound of my voice. With each word, feel your body and mind drifting further into a deep state of relaxation. Allow your eyelids to become heavy and close your eyes if you haven't already.
Now, imagine yourself in a peaceful, serene environment. It could be a lush garden, a quiet beach, or a tranquil forest. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and the gentle breeze caressing your face. Hear the soothing sounds of nature all around you.
As you continue to breathe deeply, allow yourself to become more and more relaxed. Count down from 10 to 1 with each exhale, and as you do, imagine yourself sinking deeper and deeper into a state of total relaxation.
10... feel your body becoming heavier
9... sinking deeper into relaxation
8... your mind is becoming calm and quiet
7... deeper and deeper
6... letting go of any remaining tension
5... your body and mind are completely at ease
4... feeling peaceful and serene
3... almost there, fully relaxed
2... embracing the stillness within you
1... fully relaxed, open, and receptive
Now, in this deeply relaxed state, let us focus on the idea that although you grieve for what you have lost, you know that a greater good will follow. Repeat these affirmations silently or out loud, letting them sink deeply into your subconscious mind:
- I acknowledge my grief and embrace my feelings.
- I allow myself to experience my emotions fully and without judgment.
- I release any guilt or shame associated with my grief.
- I trust that my healing journey will bring about positive change and growth.
- I am open to the greater good that will emerge from this experience.
- I am grateful for the love, support, and strength that surrounds me.
- I have faith in the resilience of my spirit.
- I believe in my ability to overcome challenges and emerge stronger.
- I am at peace with the natural ebb and flow of life.
Now, imagine a warm, comforting light surrounding you, enveloping you in its embrace. This light represents the love and support that is always with you. As you sit with this light, know that it is helping you heal and grow from your experiences.
Visualize this light expanding, touching those around you who may also be grieving, offering them the same comfort and support. As the light continues to grow, imagine it spreading throughout the world, touching the lives of countless others who may be struggling with their own losses. Envision this light as a powerful force for healing, transformation, and growth, bringing about a greater good for all.
As we come to the end of this session, know that you are not alone in your journey of healing and growth. Remember that although you grieve for what you have lost, you trust that a greater good will follow. Carry this knowledge with you as you go about your day, confident in your ability to overcome challenges and find peace.
Now, begin to bring your awareness back to the room. Feel the surface beneath you and the air around you. Slowly wiggle your fingers and toes, and when you are ready, take a deep breath and gently open your eyes, feeling refreshed, relaxed, and ready to embrace the greater good that lies ahead.
