The Magic Of Nature
It’s time to relax and allow yourself to drift off into a peaceful, dream-filled sleep. But before we begin, make sure you are feeling as comfortable as possible in your bed…
Using your pillows and blankets so that you feel warm, snug and relaxed
Start to take a slow, deep breath in… So that you can feel your belly expanding like a balloon…
Then breathe the air out with a soft sigh
Practice this once more, taking a slow deep breath in… Feeling your belly expand
Then breathing out with a sigh
And as you do this, imagine your body to becoming heavy, like a floppy rag doll
As though you are gently sinking into your bed
Your mattress feels so soft and comfortable…
As though your bed is giving you a big, warm hug
Soft. Comfortable Relaxed
I am going to count down from 5 to 1, and as I do, you will notice your body becoming more and more relaxed
1 – Your arms and legs are starting to feel loose and relaxed
2 – Allowing your head to sink into your pillow…
3 – Feeling heavier and heavier with relaxation Gently sinking into the comfort of your mattress . 4 – It is a comfortable feeling, almost as though you couldn’t move even if you wanted too 5 – Feeling completely supported, completely comfortable, completely relaxed
As you enjoy this relaxed feeling, begin to notice how amazing the sound of your breath is
Listening to the soft change in sound as you breathe in And out
It sounds like small waves, breaking on the sand of a beach
Can you hear that?
Soft and rhythmic. Like gentle waves rolling in… and out
Imagine what this beach might look like
Clean white sand… Perfect for sandcastles
Calm blue waters… Perfect for swimming, or sailing a boat
Imagine yourself on this beachListen to the soft sound of the waves rolling in and out.
Picture yourself laying on a large blanket, it is soft and fluffy,
And stripped with all the colors of the rainbow
The sun is shining down on you, sending rays of warmth to gently tickle your skin…
Imagine the warmth spreading over your toes, and along your legs…
Warming your body and spreading out your arms to the tips of your fingers…
All the way up to the very top of your head
Feel the gentle, comforting warmth of the sun, spreading all over your body Soothing, tingling warmth
Imagine yourself laying on this colorful blanket, looking up at the clear blue sky
There are small fluffy, white clouds floating lazily across it…
Notice how they form into different shapes
There is one that looks like a rabbit
And another that looks like a teddybear
. That one looks like an elephant!
What other shapes can you see?
There is something magical about this beach
The sand sparkles like diamonds
The water looks clear and blue
The air is warm and comforting . This is a special beach because it is your beach…
A place you can visit any time you wish too
You only need to close your eyes to find it
Why don’t you explore this beach? The golden-white sand, stretching as far as your eyes can see. Seashells of all different colors, shapes and sizes lay nestled in the sand, like little pieces of treasure, waiting to be discovered
Why don’t you have a look and see what seashells you can find?
There are so many to collect…
They are many different shapes and sizes
Some are very small, and some are as big as your hand
There are orange ones and pink ones… Some are blue and some are green
Some of them seem to change color as you move them in the sunlight
There are so many to collect!
You can hear the small waves breaking on the sand
Slow and rhythmic Flowing in time with your breath As you look away from the water, you notice that there is a tropical forest just up off the beach
There are palms trees, heavy with coconuts
There are vines thick with flowers…
And even some monkeys playing there
It looks very inviting! As you look more closely, you see a pathway leading into the forest. You place your collection of shells on your blanket and walk towards the forest…
You can hear the sounds of the different birds singing to each other And very faintly, you hear the sound of water Perhaps there is a waterfall!
. As you enter the forest, you can smell the sweet smells of flowers and fruits The air is slightly cooler in here, but still warm and inviting The sunlight streams in from the gaps in the trees above Lighting the path up like spotlights at a circus
The trees are so tall
With vines so thick you could swing from them!
There are ferns and bushes in wonderful shades of green
And colorful mushrooms growing along the edges of moss-covered rocks
If you look closely, you can even see the sparkle of fireflies sparkle, floating like fairies in the shadows of the trees
It is like a magical kingdom, and you wouldn’t be surprised to see elves or other magical creatures in a place like this
. You follow the path along, listening to the sound of water falling over rocks becoming louder as you get closer to the waterfall
Then around the next corner, you see it!
The waterfall is falling from high up, creating white bubbles as it lands in the large, clear pool of water beneath it
It is so peaceful and beautiful
Beside the pond is a soft mossy area
Why don’t you sit here for a while and watch the waterfall?
You can see colorful fish swimming in the pool of water
And animal stopping to drink from the water’s edge… The sound of the waterfall is rhythmic and refreshing
And you can feel it washing away all your worries…
Leaving you feeling completely safe…
You can continue to relax here… If you like. Or perhaps you might like to explore more of the forest or your beach
You can choose to do anything you like…
As this is your magical place, and it is here for you to enjoy.
