Body, mind and environment, I am part of Nature

Take a breath. Feel the air going into your nose, then into your lungs. Follow it out of your body. Do this once more. Follow the journey of the air as you breathe in and out. (pause 3 sec) Consider this. The air you breathe belongs to the Earth. Consider the simple truth of this. (pause 2 sec) Feel the ground under your feet. Focus on the floor for the moment. The f loor you are feeling is built on Earth. Consider this. (pause 3 sec) Remember for a moment you are sitting on the log. Imagine yourself getting off the log and walking back into the forest. (pause 3 sec) You are among trees again; you are walking and breathing the fresh forest air. In your mind’s eye, look around for a lovely tree, a tree you can sit under. It should be a vibrant, green tree. (pause 3 sec). Once you have found it, see yourself sitting down. Lean on the tree trunk. (pause 3 sec) Look around. Everything here is alive.
You are alive. You are part of this living system. You are welcomed by the plants, by the trees, the sky and the Earth. You are welcomed because this is your true home. You belong here. You have just forgotten. Now it is time to remember where you came from. (pause 4 sec) Sit there for a moment, breathe the air and wait for any messages from the forest. Try to listen for it in your mind. Listen especially with your heart. (pause 6 sec) Now see yourself slowly standing up, then walking out of the forest. Take your time to do this. (pause 5 sec) Say thank you to whatever has sent the message. Remember to bring this message with you. (pause 4 sec) Gently focus on your feet again. Remember you are sitting on the log. In your mind stand up and walk back to the forest. Focus on your bare feet on the forest floor, feel the cool bed of leaves touching your toes and your heels. (pause 3 sec) Now slowly bring your awareness to this room. Feel your feet on the ground. Feel your roots deep in the ground. As you keep focus on your feet, bring your awareness to this room now fully. Become aware of the chair under your body. Listen for the sounds around you. Bring your mind back to your feet. Where are they? Can you feel them? Gently wiggle your toes. Feel the full sensation of the floor beneath your feet. Slightly press them on the floor. Wiggle your fingers and rub your palms. Move your shoulders. Take a deep breath. When you are ready slowly open your eyes, first looking down then up and up until you are looking straight ahead. Do this in your own time. When your eyes are open give yourself a good stretch if at all possible in silence to give others space to do the same in their own time.
