Relaxation Script: The Flower Inside

Aug 29, 2010 | All Relaxation Activities, Guided Imagery

This guided imagery exercise is perfect for connecting to your inner beauty.

  1. Take three deep breaths in. Feel your tummy expand like a balloon as your breathe in. Feel your tummy fall down flat as you breathe out.
  2. Concentrate on making your body relaxed, feel each part and see how relaxed it can be.
  3. Now imagine that you are a flower. Your roots grow down into the earth and your leaves reach out on each side of you. (pause) You are growing in the sunlight. Feel the warm sun on your leaves and the deep soft earth between your toes/your roots.
  4. See what color your petals are. Notice the shape of your petals. See if you want your petals to be soft, slick or sticky. Imagine that you are swaying a little in the breeze.
  5. You are a very beautiful flower. Every part of you is connected. You are getting food from the earth, light from the sun and rain from the clouds. You are completely taken care of right where you are. Everything you need is there for you. Breathe in the beauty. Imagine that this beauty is a blue light. Breathe this blue light down to your toes. Now breathe it up to your ears.
  6. You have breathed that beautiful blue light into every part of you now. You have the beauty of the flower inside you now. You are very beautiful. You have everything you need right now, in this moment.
  7. You can open your eyes when you are ready.


  1. Love this relaxation. I teach a few kids yoga classes and plan to use this next class.

  2. I really want to thank you for creating this website and blog on relaxation scripts for children and teenagers. I am refering to it all the time now that I discovered it. I use it weekly for the individuals I serve as a psychologist in my therapy work. The scripts are ideal for teaching our youth how to relax.

    Thanks so much,
    Dr. Krista P. Trefz

    • Thank you so much for your feedback! I really appreciate it!
      Best wishes for your work serving youth.
