Mentally Letting Go

A meditation

Sit in a comfortable chair.

Close your eyes.

Completely relax.

To help you relax and enter a meditative state, breath in slowly, hold for a few seconds, and then breath out.

Repeat this 10 times.

Afterwards, imagine you are diving into a deep pond.

See yourself in your mind swimming downwards, deeper and deeper.

(This will help you access your subconscious mind).


Then, picture yourself in a field, holding a balloon.

The balloon contains all of your tension and pain in it.

Picture this well.

Then, release the balloon in your mind, with all the tension and pain inside it.

Watch the balloon slowly climb away, higher and higher, count the feet it rises in your mind, until the balloon is finally out of site.


When you are done with the balloon, imagine again that you are at the bottom of the deep pond.

Start swimming back up, slowly coming closer and closer to the surface. Then, break out of the water.

Open your eyes, get up from your chair and walk away feeling free!
