Welcome, this guided healing energy yoga nidra meditation is designed to bring deep relaxation and awareness to different parts of your body, supporting your immune system and your body’s natural healing abilities. The yoga nidra or non-sleep deep rest will support you in letting go of tension, lowering your heart rate and blood pressure, and stimulating your body’s healing response.
Throughout the meditation, you’ll be encouraged to focus on your breath, allowing it to flow naturally and deeply, promoting relaxation and activating your parasympathetic nervous system. You’ll also be guided to set an intention for your practice, such as “my body is already healing itself” or “I am filled with vibrant health and vitality,” to cultivate a deeper mind-body connection and support your immune system.
We will use visualization to circulate healing energy through your body. Several studies have shown that visualization and intention can enhance your body’s natural healing abilities.
“Effect of Guided Imagery with Relaxation on Healing of Wounds” (Study by Klein et al., 2003): This study examined the effects of guided imagery combined with relaxation techniques on wound healing in a sample of breast cancer patients undergoing surgery. The results showed that the group receiving guided imagery with relaxation had significantly faster wound healing compared to the control group.
“Effect of Guided Imagery on Length of Stay, Pain and Anxiety in Cardiac Surgery Patients” (Study by Zahr et al., 2018): This study investigated the effects of guided imagery on length of stay, pain, and anxiety in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. The findings revealed that the group receiving guided imagery had shorter length of stay, lower pain scores, and reduced anxiety levels compared to the control group.
“The Effects of Guided Imagery on Immune Functioning in Women with Breast Cancer” (Study by Lengacher et al., 2012): This study examined the effects of guided imagery on immune functioning in women with breast cancer undergoing radiation therapy. The results showed that the group receiving guided imagery had improved natural killer cell activity, a marker of immune function, compared to the control group.
“Imagery Training and Self-Hypnosis in the Management of Hand Contact Dermatitis: A Randomized Controlled Study” (Study by Barabasz et al., 1999): This study investigated the effects of imagery training and self-hypnosis on hand contact dermatitis, a type of skin condition. The findings revealed that the group receiving imagery training and self-hypnosis had significant improvements in symptoms and faster healing compared to the control group.
May all beings be healthy and free. May this yoga nidra support your body’s natural healing ability.
