Safe Place / Relaxation Space Guided Visualization
In this guided meditation, Dr. Andrea invites you to visit a safe place, your own relaxation space, that you can return to any time you need.
Once you are calm and relaxed in your safe place, you can invite a trusted guide, teacher or loved one to join you. You can ask them for comfort, advice or just company.
This could also be a place you visit to work through ideas, solve problems or get healing. Be creative! Once you’ve trained yourself to calm your brain down, you can breathe deeply and access higher states of consciousness, your spirit guides or ancestors — even your higher self can be contacted — to help you through the tough times in life.
Before, during of after the Safe Space Meditation, I and some of my clients perform meridian tapping, like Thought Field Therapy (TFT) or Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT.) These techniques can be wonderful ways to discharge stress and provide you with the ability to add new beliefs to your subconscious mind to replace stressful or disempowering thoughts.
Make a smooth transition from worker-bee to erotic-me by doing this imagination/visualization practice.
After you have completed most of the necessary “work” for the day, whether after a business day or the work of putting the kids to bed and the kitchen back in order, it is time to transition to sexy time, adult time or personal erotic time. Whatever the next section of time is going to be for you—even if it’s just sleep—it is a good idea to let go of the busy-ness of the day by doing a transition meditation.
Breath Awareness Meditation
By simply observing your breath you can lower your stress hormones, decrease blood pressure and your heart rate. The benefits of doing a simple breathing meditation for just 5-10 minutes two to three times per day are many – including learning to create calm anytime and anywhere.
You can also develop the capacity to become the silent witness who watches your emotions and bodily sensations. This is particularly helpful when recovering from addiction, eating disorders and past trauma.

Body Scan Meditation
The body scan meditation is very simple and yet incredibly powerful. I recommend performing the body scan daily to really learn how to be tuned into the present moment. It is an excellent beginner’s meditation practice, which still brings deep benefit to even experienced meditators.
The body scan simply involves mentally directing your awareness throughout the body with kind, accepting and affectionate attention. As you scan you are not trying to move, relax or even “see” your body.
Erotic Fantasy Guided Meditation
For this meditation, you will tap into your own imagination to fantasize about the perfect scene to get you in the mood. Because it is a fantasy, it doesn’t have to be realistic, it need not feature your current partner, and you can be as indulgent as you dare to be. My clients tell me that indulging in sexual fantasies before getting together with their beloved helps them open up to creative lovemaking, rather than sex as usual.
Take a few minutes to melt away guilt and shame with this self-forgiveness and karma clearing meditation narrated by Dr. Andrea Pennington.
You can release the pain and dis-ease that your body and brain store from the past by breathing calmly and mentally allowing yourself to release the past.
