difficult days can somehow be overshadowed
with memories of the past. please take this time for yourself, to relax,
rejuvinate and release anything holding you back from enjoy the present.
taking in a gentle and deep breath of acceptance of your desire to let go and just be, inhale
the air, filling your lungs to capacity, and release even slower out through your nose.
as you release, you should feel the tops of your arms and your shoulders loosen a little.
remaining present, concentrate on the here and now.
feel the position of your body as it is, and reposition yourself for comfort.
feel each natural breath pass your lips in this moment of peacefulness, and your chest
be free to breathe deeper breaths. relax more on each outward breath, allowing
any stirring in your abdomen to become still. lose yourself in this present moment, sense
every part of you unwinding and releasing tension.
scan your head down to your toes, adjusting any area that needs to be prompted into a
softer version of itself. with your eyes closed, feel how your body
has already relaxed in the small seconds that have passed.
behind your eyelids and down into your mind, see a picture of fine yellow sandy beach.
you can hear the gentle ripple of waves, and now see them rolling on to the shore.
a blue sky occupies this scene, with very few to little cloud floating by.
as you float into this image you, yourself have imagined, and as you get closer to the
sand, you begin to slowly walk along the shore. as you walk, each footstep is left behind
as you carry on forwards. walking close the waters edge, where the sea
covers and then repels back into itself, you watch your own footsteps being washed away
with each gentle wave that wipes the shore.
now, placing intention into each step, take a part of the past that you would like to
leave behind, to let go and release. placing that thought in your mind, send that
thought down to your feet, to your soles, and walk along the sand.
each footstep now seemingly heavier than the last, as perhaps emotion is felt in each step.
ingraining those emotions, feelings and intentions into the sand, you continue to walk slwoly
on. looking back, behind you, the first gentle
wave rolls in, splashing down and then spilling over where you have walked.
intently you watch as the water receeds back into the ocean and reveals that the footsteps
of the past have been wiped away, leaving a smooth dark golden sand behind.
continuing to walk further, you watch on as each footstep gets wiped clean, away and into
the sea. the sentiment here is, that time is a healer,
only the action of walking or taking action in your own life will allow you to move forward.
your willingness to move on in gives the past, space, allowing you to heal and to take care
of yourself. the memory of the past may remain but not
as vivdly as before, like the footprints that have faded away, they not as deep as they
were before. you continue walking, as you do, you begin
to worry less about looking behind and now see an untouched path forward.
this fresh path is a freedom that you discover with your intent to let go.
you bein to let go more, by observing your surroundings.
the deep blue satisfying sky calms your every emotion, its colour is soothing, bringing
you to be more present and in the moment. the waves you see wash up on the shore remind
you to keep going, things will get better. the birds in the sky are a sign of freedom,
freedom that you can move on. for as far as your eyes can see, there is
sand and ocean. with the sun shining down, you are warm and
at peace. as you continue to walk along this pleasant
and pleasing shore, your mind turns to its own positive self talk.
walking along, moving forwards, the words in your mind take over.
