Get comfortable and take a breath. Then read aloud this guided visualization, using your imagination to visualize the feelings, sights, and sounds.
Listening to the sounds around me,
I take a moment to feel calm and still.
I feel that I am rooted in the earth and growing.
There are buds on my branches that are new beginnings.
I know that I am connected to the earth.
I am a part of the trees, water and soil.
Ancient and elemental, I am also new and young.
The smell of vegetation after a rainfall is in the air.
Breathing it in, I know that I am alive.
My connection to the earth is in my roots.
It is in the energy from the core of the Earth that runs through my body.
It is in the moisture that falls and that allows me to grow.
My buds will bloom.
A drop of moisture lands on a bud.
The sunlight appears shining on the drop.
A butterfly flitters by me.
Energy flows through me.
My connection to the Earth is strong.
I am the trees, water and soil.
I am the roots.
I am the Earth.
I am the drop of moisture.
I am the butterfly.
Still the smell of vegetation after a rainfall is in the air.
My buds are opening.
They will become flower blossoms.
The birds sing, the butterfly lands.
It is a new beginning.
