Kind Cleaner Fish Excerpt:

The Ahway Island reef sparkled and shined under the warm rays of the sun. Brightly colored coral formations adorned its crystal-clear waters, providing snug homes of all the creatures who lived there.  One such creature was a cheerful parrotfish named Saori.

On this bright morning, Saori woke up to the gentle swaying of the water. Sunlight danced through the waves, casting rays that reached all the way down to where Saori rested. Saori opened her eyes and greeted the day with a big, toothy smile. “Good morning, ocean!” Saori said as she twirled about in the sunbeams. She loved the way her blue, yellow, and green scales reflected the light.

Today’s Meditation: Relax as you imagine sunlight warming you as you lie in a grassy meadow.
