Air/Wind Guided Visualization Activity Sit in a comfortable spot outdoors. Close your eyes and take some deep relaxing breaths. Feel the air as it fills your lungs and as it leaves your body. Feel the air that has left your body gently surrounding you and lifting you up. You can't see it, but you know the air is supporting you, because you feel it's gentle strength around you. Let this force carry you wherever you want to go. You have always wanted to journey to this place. Feel the air become suddenly cool- then just as quickly, warm air replaces the cool air. You are tossed around by the change in temperature, but you remain calm. You feel at ease and comforted by the freeness of floating. You feel yourself descending. As your journey ends, take a deep breath and you will land effortlessly and safely.
Reflect and Write What were your feelings? Where did you go?
