Into the Garden of Delights . . .
. . . a waking dream . . .

This is a script for a focused trance guided imagery. If you are unfamiliar with what a focused trance guided imagery is or if you have not first read the introduction to the series which has important information on how to proceed, then stop now and go to the introduction and how-to proceed post. Once you have read the introduction to the series, come back here and continue.

Before experiencing the piece via guided imagery, hypnosis, or other focused trance techniques, please read through the piece first to determine if the imaginative experience described is appropriate for you. If you are uncomfortable with certain types of language or imagery, then please do not indulge in recreational, nondirected or un-facilitated focused trance sessions that include that imagery. If you have a fear or phobia associated with any of the imagery, then do not run the process with that imagery. You are encouraged to consult an appropriate guide – you can find links to a number highly qualified and competent focused trance guides and hypnotists here.

Now, on to the imagery . . .

INTO THE GARDEN OF DELIGHTS . . .
. . . by Brian David Phillips

As you continue to breathe in . . . and breathe out . . . relaxing more and more with each and every deep, deeper, deeply relaxing breath . . . imagine, visualize, see, feel, or experience that you are standing at an ancient gateway into a beautiful garden . . . and as you walk through the stone archway, you see a single word carved into the living rock . . . Xanadu.

Walk for a distance and notice the beautiful flowers, the beautiful colors, the fragrant and special and relaxing smells, the feel of the comfortable sun’s warmth upon your skin, the sound of the birds, the feel of the soft gentle breeze upon your hair, the sound of the wind gently rustling the leaves of the beautiful trees . . . really let go and feel the soft gentle earth under your feet and the comfortable softness as you now sit upon a luxurious cushion, comfortable, peaceful, by the edge of a small and beautiful pond . . . watching the butterflies, the colorful fish, and listening to the gentle sound of a fountain in the middle of the pond where there is a small structure with a dais upon which is a wonderfully special and beautiful statue, an extremely beautiful carving of The Goddess . . . and as you look into her gemstone eyes, so bright and beautiful and magickal, you find yourself drawn within, peaceful, comfortable, as a wave of unconditional and beautiful love washes over you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes as you allow yourself now to really feel it as your breathe in the love, and breathe out, relaxing more and more, really feel it now as with each and every breath in, you feel yourself drawn into the peace, and love, and tranquility that is her presence, as with each and every breath out, you feel your body relaxing more and more as your mind stills even deeper as your spirit fills with love, unconditional beautiful love . . . healing love, joyful love, the love that is both within you and without you, deep, deeper, deeply within that special place down down down deep inside you where everything is true and you just . . . let go . . . and surrender . . . to this beautiful loving, healing, joyful, special feeling . . . as those eyes . . . those beautiful eyes . . . just draw you in . . . deep, deeper, deeply within . . . into that feeling . . . with each and every breath . . .

As you now feel yourself being drawn into an astral plane, an imaginary realm of love, light, goodness, and pure unconditional love . . . as your body relaxes even deeper now with each and every deep beautiful breath . . . now . . . as I count from five to one, with each number, feeling yourself being drawn even deeper into her eyes, her beautiful eyes, and filling you more and more with unconditional love, really feel it now, until I reach the number one, and at that number, allow yourself to find yourself deep deeper, deeply within the realm of the loving imagination, where she will guide you into a beautiful experience, an imagined journey or experience of love, joy, peace, and tranquility . . . let your unconscious mind now float free and beautifully as your conscious mind just stills and relaxes even more . . . let it happen of it’s own accord and allow yourself to experience a beautiful imagined experience, a loving gift from the goddess that carries a meaning and vitality and loving message just for you . . . just let it happen now . . . as you drift even further . . . five . . . deeper . . . four into the love . . . three . . . so relaxed and so filled with the loving kindness and peace of mind . . . two . . . almost there, really let go and surrender to the experience as her eyes draw you in . . . and . . . one . . . let the loving feelings drift over you and through you . . . healing love, peaceful love . . . deeply meaningful love . . . as you now walk through another gateway of the mind, stepping into a peaceful, loving, experience . . . a loving gift of meaning for you through her love . . . for the next few minutes . . . which is all the time you need . . . beginning . . . now . . .
