It is easy to get caught up in all the chaos and activity of the world around you.
Traffic, people, TV and computer and cellphones and other devices are constantly calling for your attention.
We all need a break.
Give yourself a break throughout the day.
No matter what you’re doing, take five or ten minutes to simply get present with where you are at outside and inside.
Sit quietly. Close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Slowly. In. Out. Slowly. In. Out.
Imagine a river of love rising up all around you.
It envelops your toes, your feet, your ankles, calves, knees, thighs and as it rises, it embraces you in warmth and love washing away all the tension of your day.
Let it keep rising and imagine that as it rises, your body begins to lift until you are floating on the river’s warm, beautiful surface.
Spend five minutes simply resting in the river’s embrace knowing it is love that supports you, holds you up, keeps you safe.
Repeat several times throughout the day.
