Induction and Deepening of choice

Now I want you to imagine yourself walking barefoot on a beautiful island. The Sun has just risen over the horizon and you’ve decided to leave your villa to take a morning stroll right where the water meets the shore…you can feel the dry sand in between your right toes and the warmth of the water and wet sand in between your left toes…you are feeling happy and content in this moment without a single worry in the world. The weather becomes slightly warmer, calming your body even more…as you gaze towards the horizon you notice another island off in the distance…the island is aglow, and you feel a soothing energetic force calling you towards this island… As you continue your stroll you notice a little green boat with your name written on it, facing towards the direction of this other island.

 

You trust your intuition and decide to board the boat… There are comfy cushions and a warm blanket allowing you to feel comfortable and safe. As you get into the boat, it begins to automatically sail towards the other island… The water is still, and so you drift so gently across the sea… As you look behind you, you notice a beautiful stream of colours of the rainbow leaving a trail behind you as you cruise towards the island…You stretch your right hand over the edge of the boat and feel the warm water with the tip of your fingers, and as you do, you notice the water leaves a sparkling glittery trail as your fingers touch the water…

 

You have almost arrived at this island and already you can smell the tantalising fresh air that makes you feel safe and excited to hit its shore… The boat finally stops by the shore allowing you to easily hop off and as you take your first step, you feel an overwhelming, yet beautiful wave of energy enter your being relaxing every muscle in your body. There is something about this island, and you can’t wait to find out…

 

You can hear the birds singing as if they are sending you a warm welcome on the island… You feel welcomed, you feel safe and you feel at home… As you begin to explore you come across a large wooden gate with a big sign that says “CLIENT’S NAME Island”. Before you could even touch the door, the doors open wide for you to enter… You feel the breeze of the air move through your hair as the large wooden doors open wide. As you walk through, you immediately feel at peace… This is an island made specifically for you, and only you. Notice your favourite colours in the trees, the flowers, the roses, the grass, the sky. You feel genuine happiness and contentment in this moment. Really feel it now…

 

You notice within the different areas of this island are the things you love doing in your life. You move into the first section where you notice a majestic tree where deep pink and purple flowers bloom, under is a massage table laid out especially for you… You notice a personal masseuse walk towards you and place a beautiful flower garland necklace around your neck and leads you towards the massage table… You lay down and allow yourself to relax so deeply in this moment. All the worries you had before coming onto this island have easily dissipated from your being… All your muscles have let go of any tension that it was ever holding onto in the past. You are so relaxed, so at peace…

 

Once the massage is over, you walk across to the next section where you find a range of mineral hot tubs with some bathers and a robe laid out for you… You change into the bathers and the water is of perfect temperature and as you dip your whole body, you feel a strong tingling sensation throughout your body… You mind is calmer than ever before, and your soul feels replenished and rejuvenated. It’s exactly what you needed.

 

Once you’ve enjoyed enough time in the hot tub, you place the robe around you and decide to explore even further. As you walk into the next section there is yet another thing you love doing most… This is something that is personal to you. Perhaps it’s another activity that you turn to when you want to calm your mind or something that makes you feel good about yourself. I want you to visualise what you really love and really enjoy this time for yourself… Soak up the feelings and sensations this section has left you with…

 

You feel so grateful for all this island has offered you as you make the most of this time to relax and be present…After some time, you decide that it’s time to head back home… As you exit through the wooden gates and walk towards the boat you notice a distinct smell and large amount of people to your right. You wonder who these people may be, and you stay still as they walk towards you… The image becomes clearer as they wander over… They are all your loving family and friends who have surprised you by preparing all your favourite traditional (insert relevant cuisine) meals… They have come to tell you that they have organised this island for you as they love you dearly… They have come to tell you that you deserve every bit of happiness in the world and they appreciate everything you’ve ever done for them even though sometimes they may not know how to express it. But today, they wanted to make sure that you knew the love they have for you…

 

You are overwhelmed with gratitude and joy as you give every single one of your close family and friends a warm embrace… As you embrace each family member you can feel your connection and love for them grow stronger and you feel a beautiful shimmering light surround you all… As the light becomes brighter, so does the love you have for each other… Take this time to thank each one of your family and friends for everything they have prepared and done for you in your life. Feel the love that you and they have to offer, and the love that was never lost and has always been there…

 

When you’ve embraced each and every one of your friends and family members just let me know by nodding your head… Good…

 

As you spend time together and enjoy your meals together, it is finally time to say your goodbyes as you go your separate ways… As you walk towards the little green boat, beautiful memories of your family and friends replay in your mind… allowing you to remember all you have done for each other throughout your whole lives… allowing you to appreciate the times you have shared. You sit back onto the boat and enjoy the feelings and emotions you’re experiencing in this moment… as you allow the boat to gently cruise along the same rainbow trail that led you towards this island.

 

(Pause and allow client to visualise and feel the emotions whilst cruising through the ocean)

 

As you sail along, you turn your head back to look and wave at your loving family and friends as they stand at the other end of the rainbow trail. You finally arrive back onto the main island and stand by the shore exactly where you started. You look towards the island that is still aglow and as you walk off back toward your villa you notice the rainbow trail continue to follow your footsteps… You are filled with love, gratitude, happiness and appreciation… You feel one with all that surrounds you… connected and at peace.

 

This experience has allowed you to have a deeper knowing and understanding that you are always connected to your family and friends no matter where you go. You have always had a strong connection and it was just a matter of remembering and re-strengthening the connection. You know that you have always done everything you could for them, but you also now know that you can be willing to receive back the love you truly deserve by keeping your heart open and remembering all you have done for each other. Whenever you feel unappreciated or unloved, just know that you can always find this connection within yourself that leads towards your loving family and friends and will always be with you no matter where you are taken in your life. There will always be this beautiful rainbow trail connecting you to your loved ones, and all you have to do is close your eyes and see that it is always there with you no matter where you go…

 

In a moment I am going to count from 1 to 10. On the count of 10 your body will return to its natural state of peace and relaxation. You will feel appreciated for always being so loving and compassionate… and you will remember that you are so dearly loved, and you are so dearly appreciated… You will feel a new sense of self-worth and gratitude towards your friends and family… and you will feel more confident and positive in your days and the actions you decide to take… and from this day on… every day and in every way… it gets better and better and better
