Begin by getting comfortable. You may want to sit or lie down.
Start to relax your body, beginning with your feet. Allow a feeling of relaxation to fill your feet...feeling heavy, loose, and relaxed. Relax your ankles...lower legs...and knees.
Allow the relaxation to continue, relaxing your upper legs. Let the muscles of your legs completely let go...feeling very heavy and relaxed.
Relax your hips and pelvis, and all the surrounding muscles. Feel your stomach and lower back relaxing...the muscles giving up their hold.
Feel the relaxation in your chest, back, and sides...feeling very relaxed...very heavy.
Let your hands relax, all the way from your fingertips to your wrists. Feel your lower arms relaxing...letting go. Relax your elbows and upper arms...loose and heavy.
Relax your shoulders, feeling them lowering slightly...finding a comfortable, relaxed position...free from tension...
Allow the muscles of your neck to relax...letting go...and relax your face and head.
Feel your entire body relaxing even more deeply...becoming completely relaxed...limp...heavy...comfortable.
Now turn your attention inward...even more deeply inside...to find your authentic self.
Begin by reflecting upon your values. What is the most important to you in life? What do you value? Where does your sense of right and wrong come from? Spend the next few moments thinking about your values.
