The theme of today’s meditation session is letting go. In this session, I give you the opportunity to do some reflection about your life.


There are two ways we can learn how to let go: the hard way, learning via the experiences of life; and the other way is via meditation.


I will guide you through each of the steps of letting go. Think of something in your life you might like to let go, and use that as a focal point for this meditation.



We want to drive our life in one way or another, and when we can’t for whatever reason – we experience difficulty. We can’t let go. Nobody teaches us how to let go. The concept of letting go is left for us to figure out.


In this meditation, I help to throw a spotlight on how meditation can help you to let go of things you cannot control in your life.


By breaking the process down into three parts, we can introduce the concept of letting go into our daily life. The process involves:

  1. Letting go of the body, relaxing the body and letting the body be the way it is.
  2. Letting go of the mind. Allow yourself to sit in silence and observe the bazaar of the mind.
  3. Letting go of the I. This is the deepest “let go” that is – that of the ego, your own self, of the observer – the same observer who is letting go of the body and the mind. Once you can let go of the I, you can experience bliss.


During this meditation, see what it feels like to let go of one or all of these three things.


I will guide you through each of these steps, starting with the body, then the mind, then the I; and then finally to the silence.


Letting go is meditation, and meditation is letting go.


Join us in this process and see how far you can go.


Meditation Steps:

Here is the step-by-step process for this guided meditation:

  1. Sit comfortably, it doesn’t matter how you’re sitting as long as your back is straight and shoulders relaxed, and you’re in a posture that allows you to let go of your body and relax. If you find it uncomfortable to sit unassisted on the floor, feel free to lean your back against a wall (just be careful not to lean your head against the wall as you may fall asleep!)
  2. Close your eyes.
  3. Take a few deep breaths in through the nose and out through the nose. Allow yourself to be present and immerse yourself in the meditation and silence. Try to remain as still and as silent as possible and continue to breath normally.
  4. Conduct a body scan, starting with the toes and going all the way to the top of the head. Wherever you find any tension, allow that part of the body to relax for a moment, bringing awareness to it and feeling the sensations, then release any tension.
  5. Let your body fully relax, having released any tensions, and now observe your mind. Bring awareness to any thoughts and anything that is going on in your mind right now. Let your thoughts come and go, and simply observe passively and silently what is going on. In your silence, thoughts have no energy. They slowly start to fade away. Remain absolutely silent and aware.
  6. Now to the “I”. Time to observe. Who is this observer? Turn your awareness towards this observer, who is watching everything. Try to let go of them, let them fade away.
  7. What is left is awareness. Settle in this awareness, in the silence for a few minutes.
  8. Let everything go, absolutely everything. Only silence and awareness are left. Stay here for some time – as long as you need, whether a few minutes or longer.
  9. Now bring your awareness back to your body. Back to your mind. Back to your self.
  10. Take a deep breath in and out, and slowly open your eyes.


I hope you enjoy the session!
