I quiet my mind with a deep, stilling breath. And then another. All is well. All is well. I am well. I settle into the stillness of my soul and greet myself. I greet myself with an attention and presence that perhaps I haven’t given myself in a very long time. I come to my thoughts and release them experiencing an emptying that offers great relief. I breath deeply allowing any tightness in my head or face to fall away. I experience a pillar of light extending from the crown of my head. All negative, draining thoughts flow out. A healing, rejuvinating energy flows in. I breathe deeply again moving my energy now to my heart. There I stop and feel my heart soften. Any anger I feel for depleting myself and giving so much dissolves. Any resentment I feel evaporates. I breathe again and experience my heart beating calmly and rhythmically. I experience an unconditional love for myself entering my heart. My heart is open and expansive. I feel happy. I breathe deeply again and now my attention comes to my entire body as a whole. I release any tension that I may feel. I free myself. I am free from obligations. I am free from the expectations. I am free to make choices that honor my spirit. I am free to show my love in a way that is true for me. I breathe deeply again now and allow a bright, healing light to wash over me making me new again. I can begin again in my life. I am grounded yet free. My head and heart are clear. I feel loved. I am loved. I am love. I begin again renewed.
