Guided Relaxation and Meditation for Emotions: The Beautiful Dragonfly

In this meditation for big emotions, you will teach your child how to remain peaceful and calm even as they experience overwhelming emotions. Children benefit greatly from relaxation tools that help them with the experience of strong feelings.

We can assist our little ones by guiding them with our kind words and giving them the necessary skills to deal with these potent emotions.

These peaceful guided relaxation scripts are written by Mellisa Dormoy of ShambalaKids. Her guided relaxation audios help children and teens relieve stress and anxiety, improve self-esteem, feel fantastic in mind, body and spirit and develop a positive mental attitude at school and at home.

Guided Meditation for Big Emotions Close your eyes and take in a nice deep breath. Allow your tummy to fill up like a balloon, and then exhale slowly.

Do this five times to really relax your whole body completely. (Pause.) You’ll notice how your body begins to feel deeply relaxed and sinks down further and further. Your legs begin to feel heavy too. Your arms now begin to feel heavy and very relaxed.

You enjoy every moment as your body continues to relax with each word I say. Imagine you’re a beautiful dragonfly fluttering about the sky. You see the lovely green valley below you with lots of colorful flowers, just waiting for you to enjoy.

You feel the wind blow against your delicate, lace wings. As the wind touches you, it gently blows away any worries, any stress you feel.
