Take a minute. Find your center. Close your eyes. Allow a deep breath. Now… listen to your subconscious mind as you reach back to find that which gives you pleasure, makes your heart sing, and moves you towards your happiness!
Sense the sea air gently blowing over your body. Let it tussle your hair as the warming sun, slowly kisses your face. Feel the warmth.
Smell the richly scented flowers and the ripe smell of sun-baked fruit as the salty air fills your lungs with each breath.
Give your whole body up to the support of the sand you are sitting in, beneath you. Let the sand take all your weight. The deeper you breath in the sea air, the more your body releases and let’s go of tension.
Feel the gentle air wisp upwards from your bare toes as it glides up over your body, massaging your skin. Slowly the air flows up and over you. Time and time again.
You now feel the gently lapping of the warm Caribbean sea at your feet. You see, in your mind’s eye, the beautiful blue-green color of the water as you allow your mind to clear. Allow your mind to feel as vast as the sea before you.
Sense your toes at the water’s edge by gently wiggling them. Let the sand fall slowly through your fingers as you move them.
Your subconscious mind is the key to dreams. It holds, locked away, the desires and inspirations that you seek to find. What do you see? With each exhale, what is brought to the surface? Like the deep sea, we hold on to our treasures, only to be brought up by a gentle stirring….
Expand the breath in your lungs as you press deeper into the supporting sand. Exhale and realize. Exhale and discover what is rising to the surface.
Now, relax and breathe. Relax and let go.
