You could feel uncomfortable with your personal environment, which may make you feel unsettled and ill at ease today. Perhaps you might feel that the world around you is closing in on you and your ability to feel relaxed is stifled. Should you begin to feel this way, you may want to try a visualization exercise to alleviate your feelings of discomfort. With eyes closed and paying attention to your breath, you can create a mental picture of the space surrounding you. Maybe it is at the beach with waves gently crashing against the shore. As you imagine this place, you can let your breath fill it with calm, soothing energy. With each breath, the environment around you becomes cooler and quiet. You may notice that doing this exercise helps you feel more relaxed and secure.
Visualizing a place where we feel calm and at peace allows us to create an overall sense of serenity and well-being. Feeling discomfort with our immediate environment can be natural, particularly when we have excessive stress in our lives. Imagining a place of tranquility, however, helps to quiet our minds and put them at ease. When our minds are still and our breath is steady, the space we hold around us expands. By breathing healing energy into this space today, you will have the means to accept your life as it is and will notice that it becomes easier to be present in your environment.
