Meditation for Body Love (Loving Your Body Exactly As It Is)
September’s theme for the More Than Lyme Collective is Learn. This meditation is a great way to learn about yourself, and your body.
We can love our bodies during times of illness, when we are dissatisfied with our appearance or after any major life event where we feel discontent with ourselves physically or emotionally.
This meditation is a great way to show yourself gratitude and honor the body you are in, exactly as it is, by using the breathe, mind and your own gentle touch.
It helps you honor your feelings about your body by using gentle affirmations instead of allowing guilt or shame to flow in.
And if they do, reminding yourself that is Ok too!
We are all capable of having healthy relationships with our bodies exactly as they are as we are all imperfectly perfect.
Free Guided Meditation to Express Your True (Badass) Self
The month of August More Than Lyme Collective Meditation theme is Express which is a great word for finding your voice.
Life can be turbulent at times. With issues like divorce, chronic illness, job loss, and other major stressors, it can be tricky to be navigate. Throwing us off course. After these situations pass, we may feel displaced. Like our voice has been lost. Like we forgot who are true self is. Going through trauma, abuse, neglect or any strong human experience, it can also feel difficult to allow yourself positive thoughts, but you are allowed. But you are more than deserving of them, and you can dream as big as you want. Let your imagination be the guide to the life you want to live, the life you can live, the life you will live one day. And if youre already living it, being grateful for all you have.
This guided meditation will help reunite you with your true (bad ass) inner self, finding your confidence and remind you of the powerful, strong human you are. Helping you express your true, strong, confident self.

Meditation for Adventure/Venturing with the Mind : July MTL Collective Meditation
After going through any period of struggle, be it your physical health or your mental health, it is a challenge to know your limits. It can also be challenging to remember what you are capable of, and what you can do in your future. It is important to visualize great things for yourself. That’s how we grow. It is also crucial to listen to your body when it says “enough!” Balance dear friends. This meditation gently allows the mind to slow, like setting a record on a different speed, so it can catch up to your physical body. It helps you vision an adventure for yourself, helps you know your limits and accept them (because we ALL have physical limits) and brings you back to the current moments with peace of mind, high hopes and relaxation.
Meditation to Wind Down and Rest | Before Sleep Guided Meditation
Winding down at the end of your day can be troublesome for some. We often allow our mind to race, when we should be doing the best that we can to allow it to slow. This slowing of our thoughts gives our emotional and physical bodies the true rest they need. Quite often, allowing this pause of thought flow before sleep will allow us to waken the next morning feeling refreshed and clear minded. Sometimes taking a break from all the thoughts, gives us the clarity we need. Take this time for you. Rest.
Free Guided Meditation to Receive and Reclaim your Personal Power
The word power makes us think of intensity, but it doesn’t have to be intense at all. All it takes to reclaim your power is a subtle thought, a gentle desire, and a vision of how it will feel to have a strong personal power.
Many of us have experienced the harder times in life. The traumas, the faulty relationships and the downfalls where we may have lost a tiny bit of who we are. This is a great way to reclaim that. To return to source. Your original blueprint. Before all else happened to you. A reminder that you are powerful, (you always were!) and with a subtle approach, you can receive, reclaim and renew your personal power.
A Meditation to Celebrate : May MTL Membership Meditation
We all deserve to feel joy. Even in the darkest moments of life, we can find one small thing to celebrate. This one small thing is like a catalyst for more and more thoughts that make you feel good, happy and allow you to celebrate. This meditation will help you to direct your thoughts at the things in your own life worth celebrating. The things that make you feel good. This feel good feeling is from the release of endorphins which are peptides that activate the body’s opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect. This is similar to a pain reliever, but available within our own bodies. The mind body connection is an incredible thing.
