In that way, you feel connected to your body and aware of being present and to anchor what you are about to encounter. Too often we disengage from the physical while our minds go off on vacation elsewhere. In your vivid imagination, call up a memory of a delightful experience. Be aware of who it is that is with you, or perhaps you are in sweet solitude. Are you in a peaceful place in nature or surrounded by activity? Drink in the environment and allow the feelings to wash over you. Be with this experience for as long as you can sustain it and when you are ready to return to your ‘here and now’ consciousness, begin to be aware of the sensations in the room, carrying with you, the beauty of what you have just experienced, knowing that you can return anytime you choose.
