Pain, insecurity, fear, anxiety, anger are swirling around inside your head like black smoke, pungent and menacing.
Close your eyes. Take a slow, deep breath in. As you do, imagine that you’re breathing in the cold, clear mist of a gentle waterfall. The mist enters your nostrils and flows into head space, where it begins to push out the black smoke, to your surprise.
Now, exhale slowly. As you do, imagine the black smoke escaping from your nose and mouth, as if it’s a thread. Every time you inhale, you take in the stream of clear, refreshing mist, and when you exhale, black smoke exits your body.
Continue this deep breathing and visualization until all of the smoke has vanished. Open your eyes. Doesn’t the world look different without all the smog?
