Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:49

Narrator: Female

Waters of Wonder Story Excerpt:

The little fish opened her eyes and noticed that now many small fish had joined her.  They had all found their way to the warm sunshine.  Falala smiled, and watched as one by one they relaxed, fins softly hanging in the water.  Falala realized the sunbeam had grown.  It was almost as if the sun was slowly extending the hug to every creature in the lake.  Falala noticed some bigger fish had arrived in the light.  At first, Falala thought she should tell the other small fish so they all could leave.  The little fish watched as the bigger fish relaxed into the sun’s energy, and it didn’t take long for her to realize the bigger fish were just basking in the sun as well.

Friendly Fish: a calming meditation and children’s tale

Friendly Fish: a calming meditation and children’s tale

Connor is a friendly fish. At his little shop in the coral reef the cleaner fish helps the animals stay clean. Who will show up today?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:53

Narrator: Male

Friendly Fish Story Excerpt:

“How are you Tanya?” Connor asked as the turtle slowly settled into the calm current.

“I’m doing well, Connor.” Tanya replied. “I do need a little refreshing.”

“You’re in the right place for that.” Connor replied and got busy cleaning. As he zipped around her shell, picking off dull old fragments, he asked. “Where have you been traveling?”

The sea turtle responded “I’ve pretty much been going where the currents take me. I’ve seen kelp forests, and reefs filled with corals of all shapes and colors. And I’ve met a lot of friendly fish.”

Connor smiled as he imagined the kelp and the coral on Tanya’s journey. Before long Tanya’s shell was just as shiny as the day she hatched. “Where will you go next?” He asked.

Meditation Description: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Picnic Parade: a relaxing kids’ meditation and bedtime story

Picnic Parade: a relaxing kids’ meditation and bedtime story

Celebrate International Picnic Day with this story.

Ada the ant leads her friends in a picnic parade to a basket filled with goodies. The ants carry their own picnic back home.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:43
Narrator: Female
Picnic Parade Story Excerpt:

Ada’s job was to scout out good sources of food. So, where should she go today? The little ant decided to follow the cloud. Maybe she would find something new. The little ant trotted across the forest floor over rocks, under logs, and around trees, until she came to a grassy plain. There was something new there. Ada tiptoed cautiously onto a soft red square. Then the little ant stepped onto the white square next to it. The white square was just as soft as the red square. The checkered cloth extended in front of Ada all the way under a large basket. Ada wondered what was inside.

Meditation Description: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

A Royal Kitten’s Bliss: a meditation and calming bedtime story

A Royal Kitten’s Bliss: a meditation and calming bedtime story

Light dancing on the wall excites Prince Grey Kitty. As the light moves around the room the grey kitten dances too, feeling a royal kitten’s bliss.

A Royal Kitten’s Bliss Story Excerpt:

Prince Grey Kitty slowly rolled back onto his tummy and stretched his front paws out as far as he could. The little kitty arched his back and sat down.  Now it was time to tidy up, and Prince Grey Kitty took his time cleaning one soft paw.  As he picked up his other paw to clean, the little kitty noticed, out of the corner of his green eyes, a flickering light on the ceiling.  What was it?  Prince Grey Kitty stopped licking his fur and tilted his head to one side and then the other.   He was trying to observe the moving pattern of light on the ceiling from every possible angle.

The little kitty wondered if the glittering light could talk.  He meowed, and then waited to see what would happen.  The twinkling light was quiet.  Maybe it hadn’t heard him. Prince Grey Kitty meowed again a little bit louder.  Still there was no sound from the dancing light.  There had to be some way to get the light’s attention.

Meditation Description: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.

Baby Duck Parade: mindfulness and story for your bedtime routine

Baby Duck Parade: mindfulness and story for your bedtime routine

A family of mallard ducks wants to go to a nearby pond. The baby duck parade travels under, over, around, and through various obstacles on their way.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:03
Narrator: Female
Baby Duck Parade Story Excerpt:

The little ducks walked through the grass.  The warm sun shined down on their backs, causing the ducklings to feel a little hot.  Then, up ahead they noticed something different.  There was a dark opening.  In addition, the ducks could feel cool air as they waddled closer.  It was a bridge, and the little ducks were heading under it.  The ducks and ducklings took a deep breath in and out (deep breath) as they enjoyed the chill of the air in the short tunnel.  Before long, they had passed through the tunnel.  Papa counted 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7.  All the little ducks had made it under the bridge.  Now they were back in the glistening sun.

Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

Curious Koalas: a calming meditation and mindful bedtime story

Curious Koalas: a calming meditation and mindful bedtime story

Two curious koalas wake up in the middle of the day. It’s a great time to see what the day time animals do. What will they discover?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:24
Narrator: Female
Curious Koalas Story Excerpt:

Then Kian noticed someone hopping off to his side. The koala turned to see a kangaroo bouncing along. The kangaroo stood still for a moment to check out the area. As she did, a baby kangaroo peeked out of her pouch.  “Look Kiera, a joey kangaroo!” Kian said. The Joey hopped out of his mother’s pouch and both kangaroos began to nibble on the grass. After their tummies were full, the bouncy marsupials settled in for a little rest as well.
