Written Version


As I enter into the stillness and silence of the night,

I know that I am part of Creation,

and that I have my part to play in the Divine Plan.

Before I fall into restful and rejuvenating sleep,

I let go with intention any negative thoughts and beliefs

that may have arisen today.  (Pause and Reflect)

I embrace those separated parts of me that are fragile and vulnerable

with compassion and love.  (Pause and Reflect)

I express gratitude for what has unfolded this day.  (Pause and Reflect)

I send loving kindness to my loved ones and friends, and all beings near and far.  (Pause and Reflect)

Centred and balanced, whole and complete,

I breathe fully and freely,

flowing in the Ocean of Love,

in peace, in happiness, in beauty, and in love.
