Today’s Story (EP60): A Busy Reef: a kid’s short bedtime story and relaxation

Raina, the radiant and busy coral reef, enjoys watching all the colorful sea life play around her. Many friends visit the coral reef for the day. What will happen?

Today’s Guided Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
Narrator: Female
Short story excerpt:

The little coral reef sighed. She really did enjoy the sunbeams. They brought brightness to the water, and allowed her to show the world all her colors. The sunbeams didn’t just show off Raina’s colors. They also lit the water with spotlights to shine on all the beautiful creatures living in her world. Oh how Raina loved to watch all the animals shimmer as they enjoyed their moments in the sun.
