Let it flow - Relaxing into Meditation


Imagine that you can direct the flow of the out-breath through different parts of the body. and that all tension flows out with the breath. First of all imagine for several breaths that your breath flows into the centre of your chest, and then flows out from there through your arms. Imagine that your breath emerges from your fingertips and from the spaces between your fingers, taking away all tension in your arms... In this relaxation, if a colour occurs to you for the out-breath, then you can imagine the out-breath leaving your body as that colour and taking all tension with it. If a colour does not spontaneously arise however, there is no need to create one unless you wish to. If you do wish to imagine the breath as a colour, you could choose a spacious blue, a soothing green, a warming red, a cleansing white, or an enriching gold.
