This is a very personal sleep meditation, it was recorded during a live sleep meditation creation session as a tribute to my best friend shortly after he took his life, covering our shared interests, a replication of one of the first hypnotic inductions I created for him about 20 years ago, etc. This was very emotional to record and had tears in my eyes for parts of recording this. This sleep meditation means a lot to me and hopefully you will like it also. As well as helping with anxiety, stress and worry, this has been created to help with the grieving process.
This is a deep sleep hypnosis, guided sleep meditation sleep story for grownups designed, like all my deep relaxation stories, to calm an overactive mind, reduce stress, worry and anxiety while helping you to fall asleep quickly, tackling insomnia.
This is a long sleep story for grownups created during a livestream with ideas from viewers. This healing sleep story for grownups is a bedtime story for grownups about a young man walking up a mountain path to a rock high up the mountain where they sit, look back at how far they have come, before drifting into a reverie and discovering themselves sat in a captains chair of a star ship. The ship heads to a destination. They head down in a shuttle from the ship to a planet. They land on the planet near dense woodland and a lake. They touch the grass-like plant on the ground. They hear what sounds like humpback whale call. They walk through the woodland to the lake, setting up camp on the edge of the lake. They see a humpback whale breaching in the lake. The next day, they check on the humpback whales and play with a dolphin. After a while, they find themselves drifting out of the reverie and finding themselves sat on that rock on the mountain where they release an urn of ashes out to the wind before continuing up the mountain to the summit. Once at the summit, they parachute from the top of the mountain and touchdown on the edge of the river running through the forest. They use wood they find and the parachute to create a boat before rowing down the river to a nearby town, check-in to a hotel, go to their room, settle down in bed and drift comfortably asleep. As they fall asleep, they find themselves awakening in an armchair. They notice in a mirror, how they have aged and wonder where all the years have gone. They sit back down in that chair and write about their experiences before heading back into their minds, creating incredibly realistic inner experiences as if they are really in those experiences. Later in the day, they sit looking out over the garden while stroking their cat on their lap before heading to bed and drifting asleep.
Some background to my choice of metaphors in this story:
When Graham was still in his teens he wanted to know what it would be like to grow old, to lead a life, so we did hypnosis and time distortion so that 5 minutes of real-world time was a lifetime of hypnotic time. He experienced a whole lifetime in that 5 minutes, then we spent hours talking about his experience. He was cremated and will have his ashes scattered in a hilly, countryside location. One of the first unscripted inductions I ever created was when he asked if I could create a Star Trek induction for him and so I made one, using increasing warp speed as a deepener. We went camping together and were always inventing things etc…
All of my healing hypnotic sleep stories for grownups use therapeutic storytelling to help you fall asleep while reducing stress, worry and anxiety.
