Beautiful Meadow

Determine the relaxation of your choice …

Visualize yourself walking through the countryside.   It is a warm and sunny day.  Your path winds slowly through a summer meadow, the most beautiful meadow you have ever seen. The grass is a luscious carpet, dotted with wild flowers that gently waft in the warm breeze…

The air is filled with the soft and spicy scent of the flowers and the rich aroma of the warm earth. You decide to stretch out in the soft, fragrant grass.  You inhale deeply, feeling contentment and a sense of belonging … all is well, all is in order …

Looking around, you notice a bee, busily gathering honey from a clump of purple flowers … a ladybug struggles up a stem of grass - falls off - and begins to climb another stem …

Somewhere near you a lark starts up and flies into the air, warbling its song.   Your eyes follow the little bird as it climbs higher and higher into the blue sky, singing its song joyfully…  now the lark is only a tiny speck in the sky, and as it climbs higher still, that too is lost to the eye.  Yet, listening very carefully, you can still hear the lark's jubilant song …

Puffs of white cloud are drifting across the clear, blue sky . . . visualize your thoughts becoming like puffs of cloud and see them drifting by, one by one, vanishing into the distance … leaving your consciousness to merge with the endless blue sky … widening … extending … expanding …

  Extended pause

Slowly let your awareness return to your body lying in the grass … then let the entire scene slowly fade from your mind...

Bring your attention back to your present surroundings and to your body.  Take a couple of slow, deep breaths, then begin to move hands and feet … stretch your body well and open your eyes when you are ready.
