Guided Meditation 3 Part Series for Self Love: Part 1–Letting Go

Episode 021 with Sara Raymond: Guided Meditation 3 Part Series for Self Love: Part 1–Letting Go

This is the first of a series of three guided meditations for developing a true sense of self-love. Please listen to them in order and feel free to come back to the series as often as you like.  The second and third parts of this series will be published on the podcast the following two days.

Part one is about letting go of negative thoughts and self talk. Take the time to honor yourself and be here now. Let go of the to do list, the judgments, the expectations and simply allow.

    Sara – I seem to have lost one of your meditations that I really enjoy. It ends with the Affirmations ‘I am enough’, ‘I love myself’ and so on. Have you delted it or have i just forgotten the correct title for it?


    • Sara Raymond on 08/21/2018 at 11:44 PM

      I am not 100% sure which meditation you are referring to. Here is a playlist on our YouTube Channel with all the affirmation recordings. I hope it helps.

      • Ufuk E. D. on 09/03/2018 at 5:35 AM

        No Sara, the meditation Chris mentioned was a mindfulness meditation on your Youtube page. On the recording you used to tell us to surf on a cloud and dream ourselves at a place where we feel at peace, either somewhere we have been before or a place that we don’t know. At the begining of the meditation you also used to say “smell the smells, hear the sounds…” etc. I also can not find that recording anymore.

        • Sara Raymond on 09/04/2018 at 11:40 AM

          I am sorry you cannot find the recording any more. I am not sure which one it is, but we haven’t taken any down from the youtube channel.

  5. Tante Kim on 08/25/2018 at 1:05 AM

    This was a wonderful meditation Sara – looking forward to part two tomorrow!

  6. Sandra Adams on 08/25/2018 at 7:02 PM

    This is so beautiful! I have enjoyed using your sleep meditation for allowing abundance, and am so happy to have found your site with so many wonderful meditations, yoga etc. which has become a very meaningful part of my life. I am so grateful, thank you!

    • Sara Raymond on 08/29/2018 at 12:29 PM

    Hi Sara,

    I have started to practice your mindfulfulness meditations after I participated the mindfulness program in Istanbul (Turkey). I do like your meditation recordings and your relaxing voice. Thank you for helping me on my journey. With love, peace and appeciation.

    Sara, in losing myself to acute anxiety during a bad menopause, I found you. I have started a new chapter in my life and each day I enjoy the journey of meditation, self discovery and the art of mindfulness with your soothing and life affirming words. I thankyou from the bottom of my heart that I found the Mindful Movement and the art of meditation during this big transition in my life…. I now try to go into the flow… “what you resist, persists!” Thankyou Sara for showing me I can be grateful for so much in my life, I try to turn everything into positivity, out of adversary comes life, light and hope xxx
