GOOD MORNING

by Dr. Carol Renaud Gaffney

Preparation

With your eyes closed and while you are lying in bed become aware of your natural breathing: in . . . and out . . . in . . . out. After several breaths take a deep, complete, cleansing breath and feel breath entering through your nostrils and filling your body. Hold for just a moment and in this moment, in this gap, positive energy and love enter. Now exhale. Feel breath leave and take with it the remnants of your sleep and any remaining tension and tiredness.

Practice

Inhale and feel filled with fresh, clean, healthy breath. Like a large, pliable balloon breathe fills you through your lungs and then into every part of your body; down through your legs and into the ver tips of your toes. Breath fills your abdomen and your chest. Breath fills into your arms and into the very tips of your fingers. Breath fills your neck and your head. As you are filled with breath, your cells and tissue become alive — they move and vibrate. As the cells awaken, renewed energy for anew day fills you and prepares you to live.

Thank breath for your ability to experience and to feel. Stay in the moment. When you are ready leave your bed, stand with your legs shoulder width apart. Let your whole body relax. Move your arms and legs and gently sake your body. Reach up to the sky and gently arch your back extending your arms gently over your head. Move back and forth and coordinate your breathing with your movement. Move back and forth like a wave, gently rocking until your whole body is in motion, your hips and legs following your arms and hands. Move gently . . . breathe fully. Move gently . . . breathe fully. Begin your day.

The more you know about your style, the easier it is to figure out what naturally stresses you and what to do to relax.
