[Teri Harman] All right. So hopefully, you're nice and comfortable, with something under your head, something under your legs. And we can go ahead and start some Yoga Nidra. So take a moment to settle, here in this position on the floor, supported and comfortable. If anything needs to be adjusted, your clothes, your hair, your props, go ahead and do that. And then you can stay nice and comfortable during our Yoga Nidra practice. So once you're ready, close your eyes, and then keep them closed until the end. Start to relax. Feeling supported and calm. Allow your mind to easily flow with the meditation, allowing thoughts and sensations just to come and go. Listen to my voice and do not sleep.

Bring your attention to your breathing. Feel the steady flow of your breath. A continuous tide of ebb and flow. Inhale and exhale. Now bring your attention to your navel. Focus on the center of your belly. The gentle lift as you inhale and the soft drop as you exhale. Gentle lift of the navel as you inhale, and gentle drop of the navel as you exhale. Lift, and drop. Inhale and exhale. Lift and drop. Feel the subtle energy of your breath as it lifts and drops the center of your body. Breathe in and breathe out your breath energy. As you continue to breathe, feel the energy of your breath move outward from your navel. The energy of your breath moving outward, away from the center of your belly. Warm and soft. The breath and energy moving outward to your limbs. Your spine. Your head. Your mind. Your spirit. Experience your breath in every part of your body, mind and spirit. Now imagine that your body is cold. As vividly as you can, experience the body temperature decreasing and growing cold. Your body cold as late winter. Experience the sensation of your body feeling cold. Now imagine your body becoming hot. As vividly as you can, experience the body temperature increasing and growing hot. Your body, hot as mid-summer. Experience the sensation of your body feeling hot. Remember a time when you felt weak. Recall a time in your life when you felt weak and powerless. As vividly as you can, remember the experience of being weak. Feel it in your body, mind and emotions. Now, remember a time when you felt powerful. Recall a time in your life when you were strong and powerful. As vividly as you can, remember the experience of being powerful. Feel it in your body, mind and emotions. Imagine yourself standing on the edge of a vast, arid desert. See yourself standing at the edge of a large, empty desert. Next to you is the rubble of an old stone house. You lift a broken stone into your hands and begin to cry. Your tears fall to the dry sand. From them, a flower instantly bursts to life. Reach down and pluck the flower from the ground. As you breathe in its rich scent, your body and spirit fill with the energy of creation. Step out into the desert. With each step, the sand transforms into lush, green grass beneath your feet. Keep walking forward and feel the landscape transform. At the other side of the desert, you turn around. The whole space is now a vibrant, rich field. See the grass. Flowers. Trees. Birds. Animals. Survey your creation. Feel your connection to each part of it. At the other side of the desert, you turn around. The whole space is now a vibrant, rich field. See the grass. Flowers. Trees. Birds. Animals. God appears next to you and takes your hand. Together, you survey your creation. Feel your connection to God and to each part of your creation. Repeat in your mind three times, I am a powerful, energetic creator. Say to yourself, three times, I am a powerful, energetic creator. Know with your whole body, mind and spirit that you are a creator. Come back. Come back to the sound of my voice. Bring your awareness back to my voice, and listen once again. Become aware of your body, lying on the floor. The whole body, lying on the floor, breathing. Bring your attention to your back body, supported by the earth beneath you. Feel your back body touching the floor. Now become aware of your breathing. Your whole body breathing in and out, lying comfortably on the floor. Take a slow, gentle breath. Inhale and exhale. Now take several more deep breaths, waking the whole body from the inside out. Take several long, deep breaths. When you are ready, make some gentle movements. Only when you're ready. There's no rush. Move your fingers, your toes. Rock your head side to side. Take your time to wake up your body and bring your mind back to the present. Gradually increase your movements. Eventually rolling onto your side. Take your time and be gentle. Finally, pushing yourself up to a seated position, bring yourself up. And then when you're ready, open your eyes. Really nice work. The practice of Yoga Nidra is now complete. Take a moment here. Breathe, move around a little bit. It's nice to write down the thoughts and memories and emotions you had during the practice. So, take some time to adjust. And thank you. Thank you for being here with me and Skylight today for Yoga Nidra. I'm grateful for you. You're amazing. Namaste.
