Sky Breath Exercise
This exercise is especially nice to do outside if the weather permits.
Sit comfortably on a cushion or a chair or you can do this lying down on your back if you prefer. Relax the body and become aware of your breath, lightly noticing your inhale and exhale.
Now, imagine a beautiful place far away from where you are, with a beautiful clear blue sky. It might be some place you have been in the past, or perhaps a place you have always wanted to visit—a beach or a mountaintop, a lakeshore or a meadow.
As you bring this place to mind, let each breath come from that distant sky, and each exhale return there, connecting you to that distant clear blue spaciousness.
That’s all. There is nothing else you need to do, simply breathe!
