Welcome to this recording. My name is Biodun Ogunyemi. When listening to this recording, be sure to listen to it when you would not be disturbed. This recording is hypnotic and is not to be used whilst driving or operating machinery.
So go ahead and find a comfortable position. Clear your thoughts and calm your mind and take a slow, deep breath. Close your eyes and just relax. You can focus your attention on your breathing so that with every out breath you can relax all the way down. You may be aware of certain sensations inside. I don’t know if you’re aware of certain sounds inside the room or even outside the room. As you focus your attention in all those things around you, you can start to become comfortable and relaxed. People can often find the time to relax. You see, as you focus on that relaxation, you can start to relax all the way down. You can focus your attention in different parts of your body. You can start to relax now. So go ahead and focus your attention on your forehead. As you focus your attention on your forehead, take a deep breath and relax your forehead. And then go ahead and focus your attention on your eyes and just relax those eyes. Focusing your attention on the muscles in those eyes and relaxing them all the way down. Allow that relaxation to flow all the way down to your toes.
Go ahead and take another deep breath and allow yourself to relax. Become aware of that feeling of relaxation inside you. Focus your attention on your throat and just relax your throat. And focus your attention on your shoulders and just relax those shoulders, becoming aware of the sensation in those shoulders and relaxing them all the way down. Allow that relaxation to flow from your shoulders all the way down your arms and to your hands and then relax your hands. I don’t know if your left hand can feel more relaxed than your right hand, or your right hand can feel more relaxed than your left hand. I really don’t know. You can become aware of those hands becoming more and more relaxed. You see, the more you focus on that relaxation, the more you can relax those hands, or in fact, any other part of your body you can become aware of right now.
Focus your awareness on your chest and just relax your chest. Find yourself becoming more and more relaxed and realize how relaxed you can become. You can remember how to relax. You can notice certain sensations as you begin to relax. Focus your attention on your stomach and relax your stomach. Relax your back. Allow that relaxation to flow slowly downwards. Feel your back become relaxed. Relax every muscle, every fiber. Allow those muscles and fibers to become loose and then completely relaxed. And then relax your hips. Relax your thighs. Focus your attention on your knees and just relax your knees. Relax your calves, your shins. Relax your feet. Become aware of all the sensations on your feet right now. Become aware of where your feet are resting. You may want to focus your attention on your toes and just relax your toes.
As you become more and more relaxed, as your mind wanders, my voice will go with you because my voice will just help you to relax even more, help you to go deeper and deeper still. You may even wonder if you can go into a light trance, a medium trance, or even a deep trance now. You see, in a moment I’m going to count down from 10 all the way down to 1. With each descending number, I want you to double your level of relaxation so that when I get all the way down to 1, you are going to feel so relaxed. You can just allow it to happen. You see, you really don’t need to think about it. You don’t even need to speak. You don’t need to move. You can just relax all the way down. 10. Deeper and deeper relaxed. 9. Deeper and deeper. 8, 7. All the way down. 6, 5. Deeper and deeper relaxed. 8, 7, 9. Deeper and deeper still. 8, 7. Allow yourself to go deeper and deeper all the way down. 6, 5, 4. Drifting down. 3. All the way down. 2. Down even more. 1.
That’s right. Just allowing whatever has to happen to happen. You don’t need to think of anything as you relax. As you imagine yourself completely relaxed. You’ve been relaxed many times in your past. You may even remember being relaxed. I don’t know whether it was last night or the previous night, last week, or even sometime today or tonight. You see, as you begin to relax, you can clear all your thoughts. You can let go of all the thoughts you need to let go off right now. You can feel comfortable and you can relax and allow yourself to enjoy the level of relaxation that you require. You see, in a moment I want you to project yourself to an ideal place of relaxation of your choice. I don’t know whether it would be a beach. I don’t know whether it would be a mountain. I don’t know whether it would be a garden. In fact, I don’t know where it would be at all. Just let your unconscious mind present you with a particular place. It could be a past holiday. It could be a picture you’ve seen. It could be a dream location. You can do whatever you want in your imagination.
You see, your unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what isn’t so you can do whatever you want right now. So go ahead and project yourself to an ideal place of relaxation. I’ll count from 1 to 3 and the next time you hear my voice, you’ll just take one deep breath and you relax even further. 1, 2, 3. Project yourself to your ideal place of relaxation now.
As you breathe in and all the way out. That’s right. And you can feel really relaxed now. You really should allow yourself to relax so that you can relieve yourself of any tension, any stress. You really should discover for yourself that you can relax just almost anytime you want. I know you want to relax at times and you just need to allow it to happen. You see, the more you relax, the more you can feel comfortable. The more comfortable you feel, the more relaxed you become. That’s right. Just consider all the things that you need to consider in this relaxed state of mind. You can allow your unconscious mind to drift in and to drift out. You can even wonder if the sound of my voice is coming from the left or coming from the right, coming from in front of you or even behind you. You can even wonder what I said three minutes ago or five minutes ago. You can become aware of certain things that are important to remember but you can remember everything that’s important.
You see, I’m speaking to your conscious mind. I’m also speaking to your conscious mind, that part of you that controls all your emotions, all your hobbies, all your behaviours. The part of you that can allow you to relax so that you can recharge those batteries and you can feel good inside. It’s important that you relax every so often so that you can feel revitalized, refreshed. You can allow that to happen. This feeling of relaxation can begin to spread all the way from your head, all the way down to your toes. Allowing whatever has to happen to happen all by itself. You can start to wonder what it’s like when you can just relax anytime of the day, anytime of the night. You can just pretend that you know how to do that. You see, you really don’t need to think about it. I don’t know if you can relax even further. You see, as you listen to the sound of my voice, you can become aware of certain sounds around you. You can even become aware of your own breathing. You can even become aware of your heart beating. You see, there’s lots of sensations that you can become aware of that you weren’t aware of a few minutes ago. I’m sure that you’re now aware right now about the feeling in your right toe, or even in your left toe. Now you need to be aware of a feeling in those toes or any other sensation inside your body that can allow you to just relax. Relax and enjoy whatever you need to enjoy. You see, because when you’re calm and you’ve cleared your thoughts and you relax, as you relax that body, you can start to relax your mind.
You can continue to relax that mind so that with every out breath you can continue to relax a minute from now going deeper and deeper still. So that over the days and the weeks and even the months ahead, you start to find that time to just relax. Stay calm. Take one deep breath. You see, anytime in the future you feel yourself being a certain way that you don’t want to feel. I want you to remember to take one deep breath. Take a slow, deep breath. As you take that slow, deep breath, I want you to remember the last time when you were particularly relaxed so that you can relax almost immediately just as you are just now. And you can allow that to happen now.
I don’t know if you want to continue to relax for sometime or if you want to reorientate yourself back to the room. What I do know is that you can have this state of relaxation whenever you want to just partake in one deep breath. You see, in a moment I’m going to count from 1 to 5. On the count of 5, you can allow those eyes to open. You can reorientate yourself back into the room feeling alert, refreshed, relaxed, feeling absolutely fantastic. Feeling as if you’ve had just the right amount of sleep you need to have because you can come back from it really refreshed. 1, 2, 3. When I count to 5, allowing those eyes to feeling refreshed, relaxed, feeling absolutely fantastic. 4. Allowing the energy to go all the way up. And 5. All the way back. Feeling refreshed, alert, feeling absolutely fantastic.
