There is Magic All Around

By Sara Jane

Close your eyes and imagine

Imagine there is nothing, you can’t see anything, it is black, there is nothingness. You can’t hear anything there is silence, you can’t feel anything.

Nothing – an existence without stimulation for your senses.

Slowly you become aware of a sound, of birds singing.

You become aware of your body, of your breathing, you try and move your legs, they move; you stretch and move your head, you sit up.

Is it getting lighter?

You look towards the window, there are clouds visible in the sky and the sky is turning blue.

The sun is rising

You can see the trees and the plants, the flowers, the birds, bees and butterflies.

You make your way outside and realise you can feel the breeze, the warmth of the sun, the grass beneath your feet.

The sounds around you are growing as all the creatures and people start their day.

Give yourself a gift, the gift of a day where you let yourself experience the magic of life.

Let yourself hear the sounds of nature, let yourself feel the wind, the rain, the sun, the grass, the sand between your toes, the waves as they wash over your feet.

Let yourself see the blue sky, the fluffy white clouds, the beautiful clouds of a thunderstorm, the flashes of lightning, the rain as it creates and then splashes in puddles, as it forms a stream, as it waters the Earth.

See the different greens of the leaves and the grasses, the colours of the flowers, the amazing canvas that is nature.

Let yourself smell the rain, the freshly mown grass, the flowers, the mountain and woodland air.

Fill your senses.

As the day comes to a close, watch the sun go down, the exquisite colours of the sunset and as the sky darkens see the stars come out and the moon throw a path of light on the sea or a lake.

Be aware of the night sounds and smells, let yourself feel at peace, as a part of this magic we call life.
