My name is Laura McGregor and I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist at Nourish Victory. Sometimes it can be challenging to get inspired. You want to create something beautiful and meaningful, but you just can’t seem to get started. Inspired action comes from an internal nudge of sorts where you feel inspired to do something. Motivation is the magic dust that gets you into that flow state. That special mental state where you're laser-focused and super productive. You get more done than you thought possible and time flies. It's a great feeling. But it isn't easy to get into a flow state on demand. When you're highly motivated to get something done, it’s much easier to get into the flow. But there's a trick to it. You have to feel motivated and inspired. That is what this session is all about.

If you find this session valuable and you know anyone you think may help then I’d ask that you please share it with them. I drop new relaxation audio each Thursday at 9pm PST. Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list to never miss a session. Visit for more information.

If your intention is to fall into a deep and sound sleep please be sure your alarm clock is set. Go ahead and place yourself in a comfortable position. Adjust your body so that you’re lying, with your legs and feet uncrossed and slightly apart, hands resting loosely in your lap.

And If I have your permission to guide you into a calm and relaxing state then just begin by taking some deep, comfortable breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.

And of course, as always you have the power to Accept or Reject suggestions as you hear them. You can practice this in everyday life when you hear something on television or during regular everyday conversations. And of course, you have the power to accept or reject any suggestions that you hear tonight. Please use these two powerful gifts as often as possible. Doubling down on things that resonate with your values and integrity by internally thinking “I accept that suggestion” and quickly rejecting anything that doesn’t “I reject that suggestion”.

And as you begin to relax I’ll bring your awareness to any sounds, just everyday sounds around your house, people or dogs in the background, perhaps cars passing by in the neighbourhood and these sounds do not bother or disturb you, as a matter of fact, they help you relax even more comfortably. And of course, at any time should you need to awaken, you can do so quickly and effortlessly.

And Those moments before you actually drift off to sleep - as your mind wanders and images can flow in and out of your mind - your mind is preparing for rest - to enter the dream world where anything and everything that you desire is possible.

As you prepare to dream your subconscious mind is busy sorting out any problems you've had throughout the day. So I’d like you to imagine bundling up any worries - any cares - and uploading them all to a safe space in the universe. Use your powerful imagination to notice a beautiful box that is a sacred healing space for your concerns. Notice what colour your box is? Perhaps it’s a treasure chest or a safe, or perhaps an elegantly wrapped shoebox. Regardless go ahead and rest your concerns in your special box. Watch as these worries and cares get locked safely away.

And now it’s time to find a home for these concerns in the universe. You can imagine a giant inbox in the sky where you can magically make your box appear and fit perfectly. Or perhaps you’d like to become perfectly weightless and carry your box to the closest star, zooming up, up, up, up all the way up effortlessly carrying your box and dropping it off, then finding yourself instantly safely back tucked up in bed.

And you can now trust that if you ever need to access these again you will have even more clarity and feel even more supported to deal with them.

And now I would like you to just let those eyes close as you begin to relax very deeply

anticipating that wonderful relaxing rest

and perhaps those eyes can begin to feel very heavy the muscles around those

eyelids really relaxing and the more you try to open them

the heavier they can become

relaxing deeper and deeper

with each calming breath

allowing my words to drift over and around you and you can choose to listen to my words

or to allow them to just drift away

floating on the air

relaxing more deeply

with each passing moment

Feeling a wonderful calming warmth flood through you across that face

every muscle relaxing down over those shoulders each cell slowing down and resting

across those arms

bringing rest and relaxation across those hands and right out to the tips of those fingers

that lovely tingling sensation that comes with such deep rest noticing that warmth and relaxation flowing over that chest spreading down across that stomach

relaxing every muscle

those thighs resting deeply

flowing down those legs

wonderful recuperative rest

right down to those feet and the tips of those toes and perhaps you can notice

as that warmth can really surround those feet

like a cosy pair of heated socks

getting a real sense of that

bringing calm and rest

naturally soothing you into deep relaxation

noticing how easily you can relax this deeply

and rest

Just as a river flows naturally to the sea

so you can flow naturally into sleep

noticing as the water flows

perhaps quickly at first

caressing the rocks and stones resting peacefully on the river bed slowing as the

bed softly levels out

then meandering gently through the hills and valleys peacefully winding in the shadows of the hills

and perhaps you can notice

the wonderful calming sound of the water flowing and the shapes and colours that form

as the warming sun glints off the surface

reflecting that relaxation back at you

noticing the flowers on the riverbank

resting gently in the warmth of the sun

smelling their calming scents as they float across the water relaxing deeper as the water flows

and sometimes a river can come to rest for a while in a small lake

taking a wonderful calming rest on its journey

still and calm

deeper water

and each drop can sink deeper into relaxation

resting and then calmly moving on again

to that ultimate restful destination

perhaps tumbling gently over a waterfall

relaxing deeper and deeper

as each droplet falls

flowing naturally and easily

feeling yourself

flowing onwards into deeper rest and relaxation

naturally feeling that journey into sleep

the water flowing onwards

brushing past those reeds

resting by the river bank

slowing down as the river relaxes deeper perhaps feeling a little drowsy from the long journey and opening out


as the banks widen

the soft bed of the river

flowing out into an ocean of calm

allowing that calm to flow over and around you resting

relaxing deeper

getting a wonderful deep sense of that relaxation and rest
