5 Minute Guided Self Love Meditation Script — Amanda Linette Meder

Relax your gaze, softly focus on a non-moving object in front of you, and take three deep inhalations and three deep exhalations. Place your hands palm up on either side or you and relax your fingers so that your hands are in an effortless open position.

Begin by becoming aware of any external noises you hear. To each sound, say internally to yourself, That Is Love. Repeat this phrase in response to each noise you hear as you scan your environment. 

If you do not hear noise, offer this phrase to every thought that crosses your mind as you bring your attention inward.

Once you have acknowledged all sound or thought in your environment as love, say internally to yourself, I Am Supported By Love In My Environment.

Gently roll your neck from side to side and bring your attention to your heart space, also known as the Heart or Anahata Chakra. Noticing your chest’s movements as you breathe in and out, say internally to your heart, Every Breath I Take Is Loving Energy. I Thank This Loving Energy For Supporting My Body Every Day. 

Now take a moment to imagine that as your chest expands and contracts with each breath, this sends a ripple, a wave of energy down through your arms, your stomach, cascading down your torso, your hips, your legs. 

Imagine this wave of energy, flowing upward to your neck, your shoulders and over your headspace and crown.

Now imagine one external thing you have created in your life that gives you a sense of love. This could be a relationship, a person, a work project, a space, a creative project, something that you made and without you, wouldn’t be. 

Imagine your breath’s ripple of energy, from your chest’s movement as it expands and contracts, being sent out to this thing that you created. Say to it internally, That Is Love. This Creation Is Because I Am. This Is An Extension Of The Loving Energy I Have For Myself. 

Say to it, Namaste (I See The Light In You). 

Bring your attention back to the external noises you hear in your environment. Say to each one, That Is Love, This Creation Is Because I AM. This Is An Extension Of The Loving Energy I Have For Myself. Repeat for each noise you hear. 

If you do not hear noise, offer this phrase to every thought that crosses your mind as you bring your attention back to the room.

Inhale deeply and exhale deeply.

Roll your shoulders, stretch out your feet, turn your head from side to side. This self love guided meditation is now complete.
