The month of November can bring back memories of a loved one who is no longer with you. Meditation can help you reconnect with them and heal feelings of grief and loss. Below is a meditation script for a loved one who has passed.
Meditation Script for a Loved One Who Has Passed
For this meditation, you can lie down on your bed, couch, or yoga mat. Find a comfortable supine position, whether that entails lying on your back or lying on your side. Allow your eyes to close.
You can perform a body scan by becoming aware of your body and its shape. Move your attention from the tips of the toes to the crown of your head. Notice your breath, and inhale and exhale naturally.
When you are ready, visualize your loved one in your mind. Imagine them healthy, vibrant, and whole. What do they look like or sound like? What other images are surfacing in your mind’s eye? Become aware of everything that you see in your imagination.
Then, visualize a white, incandescent light surrounding your loved one. This can begin as a halo around their head, cascading down to the rest of their body. Know that your loved one is safe, even though they are no longer with you.
Next, imagine the light connecting to you. Recognize that this light is connecting both of you, surrounding both of you. Rest assured that while your loved one has passed, you are still in touch with one another. Notice any changes in the appearance of the light, as well as sensations that you may feel.
Hold onto the light as you continue to recognize any feelings or sensations that are making themselves felt. If you are feeling any sort of heavy emotion, simply let it be and allow it to sit with you. Allow your feelings to flow.
When you feel that you are done with your meditation, let go of the image of the light and the image of your loved one. Shift your awareness to the room that you’re in, noticing what you can hear and feel around you. Notice the shape of your body and deepen your breath.
Then, when you are ready, open your eyes.
