Use analogies and take pauses; I was too quick in the test recordings. Let the instruction sink in.

 Welcome to this guided practice on easing physical pain. 

Find a comfortable sitting position and keep your chin parallel to the floor. 

Gently close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Follow each inhale as the air travels through your nostrils to your body like you’re smelling a beautiful fragrance.

As you exhale, let the tension from your shoulders release.

Now, bring your attention to the area of your body where you feel physical pain. 

Notice the sensations in that area – is it a sharp or dull pain? Does it feel tense or tight? 

Take a few deep breaths and let the Prana vayu travel through the physical pain.

In yoga sutras, Prana vayu is considered the vital energy that flows into your lungs and heart.

Visualize your breath as carrying life and healing light that spreads throughout the body, easing the pain and tension.

Note that nature gives us healing energy that flows through our body, healing any areas of pain or discomfort. 

Visualize Prana Vayu as a bright, soothing light that washes over you, calming your mind and soothing your body.

If you find that your mind starts to wander, gently bring your attention back to your breath and the area of your body where you feel pain. 

Imagine that you are worthy of love and compassion. With every conscious breath nature is sending love and compassion to you. Let this love heal you.

Remember that you are in control of your body and your mind.

Take deep breaths and focus on the healing. As you exhale, let there be gratitude to nature and all five elements that you are made of.

Thank you for joining me on this journey of easing physical pain. Take a few more deep breaths before slowly opening your eyes and returning to your day.
