Bring your attention back to your feet again. See them in your mind now deeply rooted into the ground. See the roots very thick on each side and from each foot. For a moment think about things you might need help with sometime. Everyone needs some help every now and then; this is completely normal. Think about up to three things in your life you could ask others to help you with. (pause 4 sec) Now think about people who might be able to help you. Who are these people? (pause 2 sec) Have you asked them for help before? If not, why not? Try and find the thought or thoughts which have been stopping you from doing it. (pause 4 sec) Do you think asking for help is not a good idea? Most people seek help every now and then. There is absolutely no harm in doing this. (pause 2 sec) Imagine you have already asked for help and you have been gladly offered it. Consider for a moment whether you actually welcome this help. Pay attention if you feel any tension or discomfort about accepting help. Say to yourself inside of your mind: I am happy to accept help. I receive with gratitude. (pause 4 sec) Accepting help is good and natural. It is what people do all the time. There is no reason why you shouldn’t do the same. Think about all the times you helped others. (pause 4 sec) It does not matter if these were only small things. A small thing to one person can be huge to another. Either way you have made a difference. Try to remember how good it felt when your help was accepted. (pause 2 sec) Remember this. Take a deep breath. Relax. Gently, 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.
