Make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breathing... deep breaths in and out... Visualise the real world disappearing.
As your world dissipates, you find yourself at the foot of a hill, the grass in green beneath your feet and you can feel a gentle breeze on your face.
The lush green grass is scattered with white daisies and you can smell their fresh scent in the air.
A small narrow track leads up the side of the hill in front of you... twisting and turning, spiralling its way up to the top, so you decide to follow it.
As you walk, following the path round and up with each step, release any stresses and worries that you are carrying with you...
Look out across the scenery, what do you see? What sounds can you hear?
Look out for any wildlife along the way.
Take deep breaths of cleansing, refreshing air as you walk. Walk on, continuing to ascend the path, heading always upwards.
When you reach the top of the hill, you lay down on the grass, lying on your back and looking up at the sky. Watch the white, wispy clouds as they float past in the bright blue sky. What shapes do you see?
In the distance you see a darker cloud and realise that in the opposite valley there is a light rain shower, but the sun is still shining on your hilltop. After a short while a beautiful rainbow appears.
As you lie on the hilltop, allow yourself to draw renewing, invigorating energy from the rainbow, it is a gift from Mother Nature and she is happy to share it. Take as much energy as you need.
When you are ready, stand up and take a long look around at the landscape.
Then start to make your way back down the hillside, slowly following the pathway as it spirals down until you reach the foot of the hill.
Give thanks to Mother Nature and come back to this reality. Stamp your feet and wriggle your fingers.
