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 www.nourishvictory.com 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
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
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
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
getting a wonderful deep sense of that relaxation and rest
And perhaps you can imagine yourself
lying on a beach
beside that tranquil ocean
perhaps in the shade of a palm tree
with just your feet in the sun
those wonderful rays of sunshine warming those feet relaxing and resting them
getting a real sense of that
just listening to a storyteller in your mind weaving words into a story of deep rest and relaxation lulling you gently to sleep
Today we will be practising what it feels like to create a holographic reality, a reality where you feel inspired every moment of every day.
In order to feel inspired, you must alter your perception, you must think differently.
You need to get out of the linear thinking mode and change the fundamental geometry of your perception.
The way in which we perceive follows our unique inner blueprint or pattern, and this inner blueprint follows a very specific geometry.
This inner guidance system determines the way your consciousness flows and this, in turn, influences the way in which you see reality.
When you give your mind some space to expand you can start thinking differently and getting inspired.
When you see reality as linear, and you see time and space organized by lines it’s hard to think differently. It's hard to feel creative.
Today all of that is going to change.
Now as you relax, think about your path in life.
Think about what it is that inspires you. What makes you want to hop out of bed and get going?
What makes you feel creative?
