60 words to help you achieve deep relaxation
The power of words - that's why the pen is mightier than the sword
I suppose I would refer to myself as a dreamer - I love to relax and imagine what it would be like to win the lottery, explore an exotic place or spend an afternoon with Connie Nielsen but I realise that perhaps not all of you can drift off into your own little world as easily as I can, so I have tried to compile a list of useful words that may help you to improve your own state of relaxation..
warmth, sun, relax, peace, quiet, love, sea, happiness, love, bathe, holiday, sleep, laugh, enjoy, smile, excitement, open, honest, kind, gift, life, heavy, pleasant, waves, kindness, touch, heat, walk, patience, feel, sand, water, smell, breathe, sweet, body, free, breeze, stroke, healthy, light, mantra, kiss, ease, alive, intense, drink, appreciate, caress, warm, hear, dance, concentrate, uplifted, still, transformed, transported, down, slowly, drift
All done without the aid of a dictionary or thesaurus.
Now all you have to do is relax and imagine your own scene - one of my favourites is lying on a beach.
I lie down, relax and let the warmth of the sun caress my body. I can feel a warm breeze waft over me and hear the water lapping on the sand...
You get the idea. Wow - I'm there already! Think of your starting sentence, lie back and drift
Try it, enjoy it, let me know your techniques - best wishes - Max
