RESTORE. RELAX. REFRESH.
Get your ahh, on at the beach. In the USA, Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer. In reality, fall isn’t set to arrive until September 22nd.
Maybe you’ve already been to the beach this season. Either way, let’s go together now for your weekly Enchanted Breath. Do you only get your toes wet at the water’s edge? Maybe you’re a beach blanket bingo kind of gal or guy. Perhaps you’re that one who runs into the water making a huge splash.
LET’S GO TO THE BEACH.
For today’s enchanted breath, envision whatever brings you the most joy or the greatest peace. Quiet yourself and let the image of a beach come into your awareness. In your mind’s eye, imagine turning slowly in a circle to take in its visual beauty. Notice the color of the sky and if there are clouds. What color is the sand? How about the water? Add an extra layer of sensory experience by inviting the sounds. Maybe you hear the crashing waves, the seagulls, or the joyful laughter of children echoing on the wind. What scents are you aware of? What tastes do you associate with your beach? What textures contrast?
SURRENDER TO DEEP RELAXATION, PEACE, AND JOY.
Take a deep and cleansing breath of fresh ocean air, in through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Breathe in another deep cleansing breath in and release. Feel the tension melting away from you in this exquisite place of peace. Feel the surrender in your muscles and nerves as you become one with Mother Nature. Succumb to deep relaxation, peace, and joy. Drifting resting and relaxing. Restoring your body, mind, and soul.
RETURN FOR A VISIT
You have nowhere to go and nothing to do. Relax. Breathe in deeply, hold it, and release. Be grateful that you were able to create a beach scene in your mind. Visit any time that you’re aware of stress or tension accumulating in your body, mind, spirit, or emotions.
Enchanted Breaths are the “ahh, the haha, and the aha! of life.”
