Can I ask you to relax now and feel a little more comfortable wherever you are seated?
Is the relaxing music on in the background to do this meditation?
Not too loud that you can pay attention to the text.
If it distracts you, put it off.

You can bring to your attention now your focus upon your own breathing,
just for a few moments in this meditation.
Let yourself relax by taking a sweet long deep breath in and
then relax further as you breathe out.
Then once more taking a long deep breath in and relax down
a little further as you breathe out.
If you haven’t already, you can just rest your eyes now, that you only see enough of this article.
Aware yourself to just relax down a little further, even down a little deeper now.
Feeling a gentle shift within you as you take this time for yourself to just relax completely.
Focus now your intention down, just a little bit more as you bring to mind
now all of those positive choices
that you are making for yourself and as you keep those options in your mind’s eye.
I just like you to imagine the number 1000 and just bring that number up to you, there in your imagination.
Now let your interior comfort and deep breath relaxation continue to increase and expand as you counted backwards from
1000 now, 999, breathe more profound and more in-depth down,
998, deeper down 997 even deeper down and when you continue
those numbers in your mind,
as you reading this article now, you can just let every word you read now continue to
relax you, even further down,
and with each passing number, 998,
you can let all of those calming relaxations
of absolute deepening relaxation continues to increase and flowing
your entire resting body.
It really doesn’t matter if you forget exactly where you are up to
in your relaxing countdown now
because you can just let
those numbers became less and less necessary in this meditation.
Maybe you can imagine does numbers floating out there into a distance,
floating further away from you as you find yourself moving backwards
into comfort and safety and relaxation.
You can imagine does numbers losing any colour in your head,
or any shape they made have had as they begin to dissolve and just
drift away, the same as that you unconsciously drift away.
Or if you imagine that those numbers that are down on the sand of a beautiful calm beach
you can bring your thoughts now to the idea
of those gentle coming waves which relax you even deeper down,
just washing any of those remaining numbers entirely away.
When you find to your own satisfaction that these figures are
no longer able to be recalled
while your conscious waking mind and you can double internal
relaxation once again and let yourself relax down to an even deeper
state of mindful serenity
and I suggest you now
that you can also imagine that your eyes are relaxed,
just open enough to read this article,
and now you can stop trying to open them more comprehensive, just stop testing
your eyes because you can let all of those waves of free relaxation
flow down through your entire body.
Because you are making the unconscious choices now, bringing yourself deeper and deeper and even more profound and just like an elevator
or a lift descending into
you can imagine there are excellent floors within you as you drift down deeper and deeper
in the cellar of your most profound unconscious reality,
and you can find it
is so peaceful down here as your creative imagination just takes off more and more
bringing you all of these calming sensations and tranquilities and relaxations.
And because you are choosing now to make those positives improvements,
you find you are discovering now many qualities within you.
And all of those qualities that are emerging from your deeper subconscious mind in this meditation are growing.
And now feeding your imagination and all of those automatic,
unconscious mind functions.
It is so easy for you now to be in this basement of your own true self.
And all of these suggestions which I’m giving to you now,
you find them completely and utterly for your absolute benefit
and directly to receive these tips is so wonderfully kind.
As you allow my words to become the words of your own mind
because all of these suggestions are entirely for your personal positive gain and benefit.
Because each and every day you are feeling more and more confident and secure and
each and every day inside your own thoughts you realize
that your minds ability to memorize and to recall all the information
that you choose to remember and recall comes so quickly to you now
because from this moment on, you are so fast able to memorize anything that you put
your attention towards.
You are finding that you are so quickly able to recall just as much as you wish to remember
because you know that where your focus goes so too does your deeper mind follow.
And once you choose to fix your conscious and unconscious mind
on that which you wish to recall and remember.
You find that all of that information just springs
back into your awareness so quickly and effortlessly and
you find yourself pleasantly to the prize to realize the absolute power
of your own mind and effect now the more you remember
the better you feel inside yourself and
the better you find within you, the more
you are able just to recall precisely as much as you wish to remind
from whatever that you see,
or whatever that you hear, or whatever it is that you feel.
And it feels so wonderfully kind to bring your attention within this space
to all of your internal resources
which you realize now so easily remember and recall each and every detail
that you have decided that it is essential for you because it is just like
still water of a beautiful crystal clear mountain stream falling
to peaks and snowy caps.
As you look at all of that crystal clear water which reflects each and every light beam,
which touches down into that fresh, clear water.
As you enjoy watching those ripples and waves as that stream finding its way down into the deeper parts of the earth.
You watch as if it reflects all of that white light that penetrates so quickly down
into those flowing parts of healthy refreshing water
and it’s so easy to see yourself in the depth of that water,
to see all the way to the sandy bottom of that river,
where you can notice
the gentle flow and movement of those smallest stones and pebbles
just all of the details on the underside of that healthy clear stream and your
own deeper mind,
so quickly and efficiently becomes like that crystal clear stream now.
Just absorbing and storing all of those necessary details which are becoming more and more critical to your everyday life.
And you find that your own real intelligence is growing now
each and every day
that passes because you are planting the seeds of your personal intellectual growth
just by reading these words and each and every word currently.
Your own successful memory makes your life
and your studies.
Even your work
and all of your attention
more comfortable and more relaxed each and every way
because you take an enormous amount of pride and
pleasure in your own intelligence and your own developing memory skills.
You find yourself enjoying your ability to focus.
And to really pay attention to your own studies
and work and hobbies as you find yourself
stepping into that particular situation now.
Just stepping into that situation now
where you quickly see yourself and hearing yourself
and feeling for yourself so fast concentrating down
further and further so that that which you have chosen to actually pay
particular attention to now,
is becoming more and more enjoyable to you
and just like a happy, playful child back there in your younger years,
you realize how much joy there is to be learning about the world and
your own hobbies and studies,
your own work even is becoming more and more enjoyable
because you are finding that the more that you learn
the better you are feeling inside of yourself.
It’s almost as if you step into an exclusive circle of your own mental success.
It happens each and every time that you decide to sit down and apply yourself to your mind’s abilities and this circle of intelligence and success follows you unconsciously, no matter where you go from day to day because this circle of mental progress is now your own secret confidence in yourself because of your intelligence and even your own brainpower itself continues to expand and develop and improve each and every passing day.
And you find yourself looking forward to each new day.
because each new day represents a unique opportunity for you to learn more
and more for you
to apply your own excellent mental and intellectual skills
and you find that the more that you anchor your deeper subconscious mind to your own circle of
the more that you please realize that you absolutely and actually naturally enjoy learning,
you deeply appreciate concentrating.
Because concentration means learning.
Learning means improving your own mind in each and every way.
And you’re taking the time for yourself now.
by choosing to spend your own time as you feel excited
on a deeper level to sharpen your focus
just like a bird sharpening its beak on a branch or may even
a cat sharpening its claws on a tree.
You realize now that your own focus and attention
is a valuable asset and to your own successful personal growth
because you know and I know that just as when an
athlete exercises he or she can grow those working muscles
and feel so good about that developing power.
And you are committing to growing your own minds strengths and focus now.
As you enjoy your time spent reading because it strengths your own mind now
because you enjoy your time spent applying yourself to those numbers
because it strengthens your personal account now
and every time you devote yourself to learning or memorizing new facts, figures, data
or the information it directly builds
your self-reliance with this meditation.
Always contributing to that beautiful feeling and personal success
and positive movement forward in your life.
And every time you study it brings you closer and
closer to your personal goals
and dreams and desires
because a high concentration is just as natural and automatic as your own breathing now.
You find that the more you relax
the more convincing all of your unconscious, automated processes become
all the time allowing you to draw upon your mind’s abilities
and unique qualities.
As your own intelligence and strength of mind is such an active part
of your own personal confidence.
Believe in yourself and
I don’t know exactly how quickly you can learn
but I do know that we all have different speeds
at which we can absorb information
and details just like a thick sponge can draw in water from that
crystal clear stream so quickly into itself.
The speed with which we learn,
the rate with which we learned to tie our own shoelaces is probably
something forgot to most of us now.
All of that ability to tie those shoelaces just lives within us
without a further moment of attention so that we can refer to that knowledge
at any time we choose to tie our shoes
and that can be such a useful and reassuring idea to capture really
and hold on to and as you relax down even further now.
Just taking this time to enjoy this deepening level of calm and soothing comfort.
You may like to take this time to really imagine all of those qualities of intelligence
and more profound perceptions and expanding wisdom and studious nature
and all of those characters and unique personalities
who might embody that idea of the speed of learning for you?
That idea of natural and effortless recall and
memorization that you have integrated
within yourself right now with this mediation.
Wherever your unconscious mind is choosing to go now,
you are finding your imagination is stepping into those new
excellent shiny bright shoes because you know that these shoes belong to
a person of formidable intellect.
Just like a travelling detective walking those streets and pavements,
perhaps sometime long ago in those stories of faraway countries or even
a neighbouring country, your own country.
It can also feel so happily familiar to find yourself looking out through
those new sharper clearer focused eyes
and as your mind’s eye looks out
from this new intellectual vision,
you conclude that it is just like holding up
a magnificent magnifying glass.
And as you held up and raised that
magnifying glass over each and every clue that you choose to focus upon
in the world isn’t it just quietly exciting now to do this work which
is so appealing to your more in-depth intelligence.
And just like a special super
key on that case where all of that information becomes yours through the lens
of that magnificent magnifying glass,
all of those little clues be their fingerprints or
scratch marks or secretly hidden letters or
individual cryptic numbers sequences are becoming
more and more exciting to you now.
Because you know just like that super detective when you are really on the hunt to hear
every relevant saying because even as you listen to this meditation
to all of those explanations,
they sound so wonderfully clear to you at all times.
You are finding that you can trust your own detective skills as you just soak up all of
the meanings of those clues.
Because your own mind is developing just like an encyclopedia
of knowledge and each
and every day, you can find your deeper unconscious mind
just writing down and adding
the text to those new fresh pages in your personal meditation book.
Because you know that the mark of great meditation and focused mind offers the ability
to find that moment of stillness.
Just by choosing into the target and focus in now, by bringing your keen awareness to
each and every clue before you, you can take in only one hint
at the time as you enjoy building up
the bigger picture.
Because you like taking the time to look at all of those smaller details down there
underneath your special magnificent magnifying glass.
And just like those great detectives
of yesteryear who enjoyed using their own great minds back,
there in those younger years,
you can find for yourself as you realize how the learning was enjoyable.
And even just a little exciting
to you and also as you step forward once again into this current modern age,
you find yourself talking with you all of those moments.
You find yourself bringing with you all of that joyful excitement to be learning something new each and every day with this meditation.
Even perhaps just for a minute or two before you actually settle down to focus upon your own
current tasks, you can remember that only by taking
in a deep breath or 2, you can
automatically and effortlessly switch on all the capabilities of your memory and
deepen attention because always you can rest assured that
your time spent in concentration and meditation and focus and memorization and learning
will always be enjoyed by your very best benefits.
I want to know where you would be when you find yourself
perhaps smiling just a little once
you remember to paraphrase the old phrase:
It’s all elementary, my dear.
As you take this time to continue relaxing and drifting and dreaming in your own
imagination, you can thank all of those deeper parts within yourself.
Because they are just integrating and accepting all of these new ideas
and suggestions for you now on that more profound level.
If you are reading this article before you are going to sleep at night time.
you can just stop now reading and try yourself drifting on down to a profoundly restful
refreshing nights sleep, waking up tomorrow or the next day, feeling wonderfully good
within yourself and ready to apply all of your new learning and memorization skills.
But if you have to get up and continue going about your day, they’re in a moment:
I’m going to count up from one to five, and when I reach five, you can open your eyes
fully and come back for conscious awakening reality.
Gently coming back towards conscious awareness in this meditation.
Feeling wonderfully pleasant and refreshed and re-energized
As each and every muscle and nerve and cell feel rejuvenated and alive
and ready to continue with your day or evening
beginning to open your eyes, wide open, as if they have been bathed
in a fresh, clear spring water
and now: 5
Open your eyes wide and ultimately coming back to your full conscious awareness
perhaps taking the time to stretch and smile and feel wonderfully kind.
Once again, always remembering that you can read this article about meditation just as often
and as frequently as you choose, as the benefits will only compound for you
each and every day that you enjoy reading this post.
Thank you for reading once again this meditation.
Talk to you soon.
With love xx
