Guided Candle Meditation to Help You Unwind And Sleep Well

This week’s Monday Moment Of Calm will help those who find it difficult to unwind and sleep well.

my life flows with grace and ease

Good morning dear Friends and a warm and hearty greeting to you, your family and friends. As you settle down to read today’s Monday Morning Moment of Calm may your heart be filled with the graciousness of all that is good and bountiful in the world.

If you have trouble unwinding at night time  and your mind on constant overdrive, this simple Candle Meditation will help your brain to slow down and ease you into a restful night’s sleep.

You’ll need

A lighted candle

A warm blanket

A timer, set to 5-15 minutes

5-15 minutes quiet alone time

Candle Meditation

Sit in a comfortable position on a cushion on the floor or on a chair with a lighted candle resting on a solid surface in front of you. When you light the candle, take  a moment to set your intention and remind yourself you are about to enter into a sacred inner space.

Gaze at the flame through half-closed soft eyes, then close your eyes and visualise the warm glow from the candle behind your eyelids.

Stay focused on this image. If you lose the image, gently open your eyes and gaze at the flame, then close your eyes and “see” the candle flame.

Continue with this soft inner gaze at the image of the candle flame for 5-10 minutes. When your timer goes off, take a slow steady breath in through your nose and slowly breathe out and, when you are ready slowly stretch your body and go to bed.

Final Thoughts

As always we appreciate you sharing the love and positive Fabafterfifty Moment of Calm vibes. If you know someone who has a lot on their mind and trouble sleeping, send them this link, maybe buddy up with them and together you can practice this soothing Candle Meditation.

We’d love you to share today’s Moment Of Calm with your friends and loved ones. Click on your fav social media icon below and spread the joy.

Thank you, stay blessed and stay calm… Take special care of you. Hugs and blessings. Ntathu
