Guided Meditation Script for Self-Awareness

Use this guided meditation script to use awareness to explore Awareness itself.

As you keep exploring the deeper realms of your consciousness in this way, you will begin to notice the fluid, energetic-calm of pure Consciousness that lies below all thought and cognition.

This is where the “real” you resides. This form of meditation will reveal an expansive sense of be-ing, beyond anything you’ve known before.

One of the primary benefits of this practice is that it’s one of the most effective ways to connect with your authentic self, and when that takes place more regularly, your presence begins to light up brighter. You feel calmer and more grounded. You feel stronger and more confident.

Instructions: First, do a five- to 10-minute body scan meditation to activate a meditative state. I have provided a video below that you can listen to, or use another one of your choosing.


After you have listened to a body scan guided meditation, ask someone (a friend, etc.) to use the guided meditation script below immediately afterward while your eyes are still closed and you are in a meditative state:

Become aware of what is going on in your mind in this moment. Observe the thoughts as if they were soft clouds floating across the sky of your mind. Don’t pull the thoughts down to engage them, simply allow them to pass by.

[let 30 seconds go by]

Notice any deeper feelings or emotions that arise. You are not trying to change any of this. Simply observe and hold it in your awareness. Acknowledge that you are not your thoughts or feelings; you are something deeper than that.

[let 30 seconds go by]

Now turn your attention to Awareness itself. Become aware of your own Awareness, the knowingness that lets you perceive all this, the inner spaciousness that holds together all the sensations, feelings, and thoughts that make up your experience in this moment.

[let 30 seconds go by]

Focus your attention on your own Awareness. Experience your Awareness with your Awareness and notice how calming and peaceful it feels. Now gently sit your mind in this place of nourishing stillness. Let yourself “be” that stillness.

Now gently notice your breathing: cool air coming in through your nostrils, warm air going out … breathing in … breathing out …

[let 30 seconds go by]

Slowly take your time and come back to an awake state, and pull out your notepad and write a couple sentences of your experience.
