Find a quiet spot where you won't be interrupted.

Sit comfortably, loosen any tight clothing. Relax your entire body, beginning with your feet. Work your way to the top of your head, telling each part of your body to relax as you go.

Sit quietly for five to ten seconds, letting go of thoughts as they arise.

Next imagine a white light entering your feet and flowing up your body, up your legs, through your pelvis and stomach, up your spine through your arms and up into your head. Imagine this white light filling your entire body with soothing healing energy. See your body filled with a white light which gives you power, strength, and confidence.

See and feel this white light as it flows through your body and out the top of your head.

Whenever you feel ready, return to the room, open your eyes, and like a cat, stretch your body slowly.

You may use this exercise whenever you wish to calm your thoughts or to increase your sense of personal power.
