Table of Contents for 30 Scripts for Relaxation, Imagery, and Inner Healing
by Julie Lusk
Whole Person Associates
Feeling calm, relaxed, and centered is a foundation for any guided meditation. In fact, relaxation is healing in and of itself.
Physically relaxing the body first, before using guided imagery, increases people’s ability to concentrate and allows their minds, hearts, and spirits to be more open to the meditation. A feeling of harmony often results.
For many people relaxation is a new experience. It is important that people practice the physical form of relaxation and spend ample time with it until feeling relaxed becomes natural and easy.
The exercises in this section focus on physical relaxation. Use them on their own or combine them with an imagery exercise from one of the other sections.
