Have a timer available.  Set the timer for the allotted minutes you have set aside for the mediation. You might want to leave a few minutes at the end to get feedback and/or for them to ask questions, or share their experiences.

They will hear a bell periodically during the meditation.  Our minds are prone to wander. Thus the purpose of the bell is to help bring their focus back to their breath.

Once you have introduced yourself and the exercise suggest that everyone find a quiet and comfortable place and position so you can start the meditation.

Begin by softly ringing the bell once and reading the affirmation. After you’ve read the affirmation ring the bell twice which indicates that the silent meditation time has begun. With a timer ring the bell once gently every 30 seconds.  This will bring them back if their minds have wandered.  Do this process over and over throughout the allotted time. Ring the bell twice to indicate the end.

Everyone can just quietly leave the room if that feels right or if people want to talk about their experience you can have a little sharing time.  It will be up to you and the group how you would like to end the meditation session.

Session 1: Healing

Nothing can hurt me or make me sick or afraid. I manifest healing in all areas of my life. I know that a positive and upbeat attitude keeps me moving forward toward a life filled with joyful expectations, perfect health, and a perfect life for myself and others.

Session 2: Health

I am the epitome of health. I affirm health every day upon awakening. I am perfect in mind, body, and spirit with the energy and drive to effortlessly do the things I have to do today.

Session 3: Happiness

Happiness is the elixir of life.  It fills my mind, my body, and my heart with laughter, joy, and positivity.  Happiness is catchy and can change the energy in the room, in my life, and everywhere I am in a nanosecond!

Session 4: Prosperity

Prosperity for me is having a rich state of mind! There are opportunities given to me daily.  I am rich in friendships, work, health, and a good secure career supporting all of my needs.

Session 5: Resilience

I see myself being resilient in any and all situations in my life. In spite of setbacks, barriers, or limited resources I am able to overcome all obstacles with the resilience that is in me!

Session 6: Patience

Patience is “the soul of peace- tis nearest kin to heaven.”[1]  Today I sit and meditate with patience ~ till stillness envelopes my body, mind, and spirit.

Session 7: Hope

Simply getting still and knowing that all things whatsoever we desire are ours already and this knowing has power over “hope.” The supply is always there, no need to hope!

Session 8: Compassion

I make a difference in this world by living a life enveloped in peace, love, and compassion.  I share my compassion with those who are suffering and find ways to help each day.

Session 9: Empathy

Empathy means that you can feel what a person is feeling. Today I walk in someone else’s shoes to remind myself that empathy is not the same as sympathy.  ‘’I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man that had no feet.’’

Session 10: Rest

I rest in the quiet peaceful place within me.

Session 11: Focus

I focus my mind, body, and spirit on my breath.  Breathing in and breathing out with ease like the rhythm of ocean waves.

Session 12: Peace

Peaceful breath, peaceful mind, peaceful body…peace flows through me, in me, and around me now.

Session 13: Skillful Thinking

I open my eyes and my mind to skillful thinking to discover the right way, the right words, and the right attitude in every encounter today.

Session 14: Letting Go

Today I let go of everything that is hindering me on my journey of life, love, and prosperity.

 

Session 15: Loving Friendliness

Today I send out friendly vibrations to everyone I encounter with a smile on my face and joy in my heart!

Session 16: Speaking the Truth

I can speak the truth without harming or hurting another.  I chose words of helpfulness and compassion upholding their humanity through the look on my face, the tone of my voice, and my helpful and supportive words.

Session 17: Vision

Today I open my eyes and my heart to make a better place for myself and my students to learn and grow.

Session 18: Brilliance

Even in the midst of challenges in the world I am a shining light in the darkness filled with hope, fulfillment, and love for all humankind.

Session 19: Skillful Speech

Skillful speech appears when I think first and speak second, when I put the other person first instead of myself, and when I respect them even when I don’t agree.

Session 20: Letting Go

I take the time to let go of all the things and thoughts that I no longer desire to see in my life. I trade them in for the things that support my greater good: health, happiness, peace, prosperity, love, and compassion.

Session 21: Concentration

I concentrate with mind, body, and spirit on all the things that bring joy, love, peace, prosperity and compassion for myself and all others.  It is easy for me to focus and through that concentration, I find the answers to all the questions that arise each day.

Session 22: Come and See

There are so many wonders in the world, in my life, and in my future.  Come and see them with me my friend and let me see your wonders too

Session 23: Livelihood

My livelihood is more than a job or a paycheck.   My livelihood is good health, loving family relationships, and friends who share and care about each other.

 

 

Session 24: Seeing the Big Picture

Seeing the Big Picture is opening my eyes to the world around me with clarity and excitement.  It is seeing through the lens of the other person with an open mind and heart.  It is creating a vision of peace, love, and compassion in my life and in the world.

Session 25: Feelings

Feelings of love encompass my life every day at the most unusual times and in the most unusual places and when I least expect them.  They brighten up my day, put a smile on my face, a lightness in my steps, and a twinkle in my eyes.

Session 26: Mindfulness

Whatever I do I remain mindful of the task at hand. When reading, writing, correcting papers or doing the dishes I am focused on that task fully, quietly, and lovingly.

Session 27: Taking Care of Others

I greatly give my time and service to others with no thought of return.

Session 28: Helping those in Need

When I see someone in need of help I stop what I’m doing and give them a hand, or a hug, a kind word, or whatever they need in that moment.

Session 29: Man’s Best Friend…Pets in need

In times of need, our pets are there for us, in their time of need I am there for them.

Session 30: Clear Vision

My breath is always there for me. It anchors me in the present moment.  It is like a good friend.  It reminds me that I am OK just as I am.
