Meditate A Moment
With Aleesha Stephenson

Close your eyes and allow your feet to melt into the floor. Feel your arms becoming heavy and laying limp at your sides. Take a deep breath - in-spiration and out negativity and stress. Another deep breath, followed by yet another.

Visualize yourself standing on a rocky beach. In the distance you can see a boat. It's slowly coming towards the shore, moving with the waves and a gentle breeze. As it gets closer you can see there is no one on board except a frail lady with grey hair. She beckons you to come aboard and assist her with her voyage.

You step into the water and feel the crisp coolness of the ocean. Walking towards the boat you wonder who this woman is, and why she is calling for you to assist her. Regardless, you keep wading until you get to the side of the boat. She throws down a rope ladder and you climb aboard.

The woman introduces herself and her name feels so safe and familiar to you. As you look into her eyes you feel like you know her. The warmth you sense just being near her is comforting to you.

She asks you to sit and you notice a table - set for tea with some pastries on a plate. You sit and accept a cup from your new friend. As you reach for a pastry she begins to explain, "I am here to assist you to heal the broken parts of your life. I'm here to listen to you and bring you comfort when you are weary. No one has to do it alone and you are no different in that respect."

You look at her gentle smile and feel like an old friend is offering you a cherished gift. Realizing how you over-extend yourself and often put others before your own needs, you feel a sense of relief knowing she is here to take care of you.

As you take your first sip of tea the hot liquid melts your tension and fears away. Sipping again brings more relief and comfort. When you have finished your cup you feel a deja vu from childhood. It's a memory of a hot sunny day when you were carefree and loved. Stay with this feeling and allow it to fill your entire being. Now, looking back at your new friend, she smiles and nods, knowing what you are experiencing.

As the boat gently rocks on the ocean waves you feel the safety and security of a loving mother, caring for your every need. Relax into her arms and allow this feeling to fill every cell in your body.

Your new friend lets you know she won't leave you. She'll be here to assist you from now on. All you need to do is close your eyes and imagine her boat… and she'll be there, waiting for you.

Giving her a hug, you know it's time to return to your day.

Slowly open your eyes, feeling loved, safe, and completely stress-free.
