Welcome to this guided meditation for anxiety.
In this guided meditation for anxiety, we will relax to release stress and use visualization to overcome anxiety. We live in a hectic world where chaos is common and stress creates anxiety and conditions that can hold you back from living a full and enjoyable life.
In order to be relieved of anxiety, it is important to understand what causes it … anxiety may come about as a result of things that you have been doing, or thoughts that you’ve been thinking about the future …
It can be an intense and anxiety provoking memory of a traumatic past event in your life, or even a series of events … anxiety can come from your own experiences or sometimes the experiences of others … It can be triggered by accidents, illnesses, the death of loved ones, or results of incidents that you were suddenly thrust into…
Most often it comes from our thoughts and how we see the situation. Thoughts of the future and the unknown….
Anxiety can come quickly and unexpectedly … and leave just as mysteriously as it came.
Fear seems to happen when there is seemingly nothing to fear … and many times the panic or anxiety is simply the silly things we make up in our minds.
So what we must address, is the fear associated with anxiety… after all, anxiety is the fear of things yet to happen…
A guided meditation for anxiety is very helpful in both mild and severe anxiety …

Pulling fresh clean air into your body through your nostrils and lungs and exhaling the deeply…. Slowly and fully emptying the lungs every time….
Breathing eases and calms…..
Take your time as we ease into this guided meditation for anxiety….
I will guide you through this guided meditation for anxiety so all you have to do is listen and breathe….. breathe and listen…..
You can listen to this meditation at any time, night or day, or even when you sense anxiety coming on……. when you feel particularly anxious about something…you have the power to decide when is the best time for you.
Allow yourself to be in a lying down or seated position where you will be alone with this meditation……
And just focus on your in and out breath, going deep into your belly – and noticing how calm and comfortable you are feeling.
Let your thoughts come in, and just let them go…..listening to my voice and just relaxing….
Do not worry about anything – your only task is to breathe and listen….. listen and breathe…….
Focus on your breath as you breathe in and your stomach rises and as you exhale feel your stomach fall, deep and relaxed….
And as you continue to watch your breath as you inhale fresh pure air and release all tension as you breathe out.
Feel your body relaxing deeper and deeper, and allow your thoughts to just slow down…..your limbs becoming limp, and your mind being calm….
And close your eyes if you haven’t already done so…….breathing in deeply…. And exhaling fully…….
allow yourself to completely relax
I’m going to lead you into a visualization now….. all you have to do is use your imagination as you listen and breathe… breathe and listen and imagine…..
I want you to imagine a scene in your mind … to visualize yourself at a wonderful place … a place where there is only calm and inner peace.
It could be someplace that you have been before, or if you cannot think of an anxiety-free place you may go ahead and create one in your mind …
It can be a fantasy place, or a real place … just visualize it and imagine it … All the time breathing and listening… listening and breathing. Allowing that breath deep into your belly and let your stomach rise up with your in breath and fall as you release you’re out breath.
And picture yourself in your happy place, a warm and comforting setting that makes you smile. Yes, go ahead and just smile….ahhh.
You can even surround yourself with things and activities that you find extremely enjoyable, without any stress at all.
Take a few moments and create this scene in your mind
Now visualize that place and see it very clear in your mind. It’s a wonderful place, isn’t it?
Now while you are in your comfortable place right now I would like you to take a deep breath and as you exhale allow yourself to feel twice as comfortable and wonderful as you do right now … and take your second deep breath … and as you exhale allow yourself to relax even more … and on the third deep breath, as you exhale, allow yourself to feel wonderful … realizing that you are in a place where nothing affects you, where there is no anxiety, where you are completely safe …
Now commit this place to memory … every detail … because in the future, any time you find yourself confronted by what used to be an anxiety-provoking situation or any kind of challenge whatsoever, all you need to do is take your three deep breaths and allow yourself to remember – and smile… and come back to this wonderful anxiety free, stress free place, that you have created for yourself.
Keep breathing and listening…. Listening and breathing
Let’s go ahead and practice getting into your safe place right now to ensure we get those amazing feelings of joy and inner peace.
Right now, I would like you to think of something or a situation that may have caused you a small amount of anxiety in the past … go ahead and just think about it…
Now – take a deep and happy breath in – and just let the negativity flow away, really breath it out hard, ahhh …
And take your second deep breath as you think of your special place….. … and take your third deep breath, relax completely … and imagine returning to your special place
Breathe deeply….. imagine feeling safe and secure in your special place….. feeling calm and relaxed… enjoy your safe place…. much better and much more relaxed and calm… It feels great, doesn’t it?
Now holding onto that feeling of inner joy and peace.
Still listening and breathing…. Breathing and listening……
