Instructions

  1. Close your eyes. Relax your face. Let your skin drape down over your bones like a soft blanket.
  2. Breathe in. Breathe out and whisper the word “peace.”
  3. Do this 3-6 times. As you exhale and say the word “peace.”

Feel the peace within you. Feel the peace around you. Send peace to the animals, trees and plants. Send peace to your family. Send peace to countries in the world that are having wars. Send peace to all the people you love. You are peace.
