We will begin our visualization today with a quote from Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
"God is life. God is life in action. The best way to say, "I love you, God," is to live your life doing your best. The best way to say, "Thank you, God," is by letting go of the past and living in the present moment, right here and now. Whatever life takes away from you, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now."
It is a hot afternoon, and you are walking along a tropical beach. The tranquil turquoise coloured water laps lazily on the shore.
On the horizon, beyond the turquoise water is an inky blue line where the sea plunges fathoms into the depths of the ocean. Above it, steep mountain ranges of brilliant white cumulous clouds swell to the heavens.
The sun has heated the fine powdery sand, so you decide to walk in the seawater to cool them off.
While you are walking along the shore, you see small broken pieces of coral and seashells. When you look closely, you can see the intact sea shells have hermit crabs inside. They scurry quickly away from you using their brawny forearms.
Tall palm trees rustle in the soft ocean wind. Here and there you have to walk around coconuts that have fallen on the beach. They are about to be taken out to other shores by the turning tide.
You can faintly detect the scent of frangipani. You can see the pale yellow blooms amid the foliage growing near the edge of the beach along with the hibiscus and other tropical flowers you don't remember the names of.
You stop again to gaze at the magical, clear water — all of a sudden a large head surfaces. The head is about the size of one of the coconuts with gentle hooded eyes. You can see the top of its massive shell as it glides along the top of the water. The sea turtle is completely unaware of your presence. Soon it vanishes, leaving behind nothing but a slipstream.
You start walking again.
A little further up the beach you arrive at a palapa with a colourful woven cloth chair inside. You sit down on the chair. It feels cool in the shade. When you close your eyes, your senses become more tuned in to the sound of the water lapping on the shore, the rustling of the thatched roof, and then on the breeze, you catch the sound of joyful music. You can also hear laughter, and you imagine the people dancing and having a fun time together.
You feel so peaceful in this place. You close your eyes and are lulled by the sound of the thatched roof, the soothing waves, the laughter and the music. Slowly you drift off into a deep, deep sleep.

I am bringing my favourite outside experiences and imaginings to create visualizations that encourage peace and relaxation.
