Wave Jump Boogie: a relaxing bedtime story

Wave Jump Boogie: a relaxing bedtime story

Wakely Waverunner heads out to play in the swirling waters of the mouth of the harbor. Between the waves and the boats entering and leaving, Wakely does the wave jump boogie.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “Ronald’s Turn”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Wave Jump Boogie” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:04

Narrator: Male

Wave Jump Boogie Excerpt:

The trailer carried Wakely all the way to the lake, and backed down a steep ramp.  As he rolled down the ramp, water rose up, from covering the wheels of the trailer, to tickling Wakely’s belly.  The water splashed under and around him, and the little wave runner relaxed.  His rider released Wakely from the trailer, and he slowly drifted next to the dock.  He enjoyed floating.  Any worries the little wave runner may have had, drifted away with the waves.

His rider tugged Wakely over and snugged him to the dock.  Now the little wave runner waited for his rider to park the truck and trailer.  He was very excited to play on the lake, and could hardly wait to get started.  All this waiting was difficult, so Wakely took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and then smiled.  The little wave runner realized that waiting gave him some time to just enjoy the sensation of floating.  Wakely rocked gently as the water rolled back and forth, back and forth underneath him.  The lake seemed pretty calm today.

Wakely was just getting in to the rhythm of the water when his rider returned.  His motor rumbled and the little wave runner moved away from the dock.  Wakely wanted to zip right out into the lake, but he knew he needed to move slowly in the entrance to the harbor, and watch for other boats.  So, he took his time and carefully made his way out to the lake.  Once the little wave runner had made it out onto the lake, he turned up his engine and began zipping around in an open area.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

Terrific Toys: kids’ relaxation and story

There are some terrific toys stuck in the bottom of the toy box. Will Alyssa the doll and Uli the unicorn be able to help them out?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 5:59

Narrator: Male

Terrific Toys Story Excerpt:

“Oh dear.” Alyssa said. “You’ve been stuck down here a while, haven’t you?”

Then Uli asked, “Would you like to be moved where the kids can find you?”

The toys responded, “We’d love that. Do you think the kids will play with us again?”

“Of course!” Alyssa encouraged. “They just need to see you.”

Uli added. “They’ll be excited to see you again. It will be like you’re a brand new toy! Sometimes, the kids forget to put us where we belong, and that’s how we get lost.”

The kind doll shared their plan. “Blocks we just need to get you back into the block container. Cars, same thing, if you’re with the other cars the kids will play with you.”

The unicorn continued, “Books, you belong on the bookshelf. Puzzle pieces, we have to get you back to the puzzle before the kids discover you’re missing. They might stop playing with the puzzle if we don’t. And stuffed animals, you need to be with the other stuffed animals.”

The toys perked up, feeling confident in the plan, and moved to one side of the toy box. Now Uli and Alyssa had space to organize they got right to work.

Today’s Meditation: Happiness and love flow through you in this meditation.

Raj to the Rescue: Perky Plants: bedtime meditation and story

Raj to the Rescue: Perky Plants: bedtime meditation and story

 It’s Raj to the rescue! He helps his parents work in the garden and gives the thirsty plants a drink as the hot summer sun shines down.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story, “The New Project”, Monday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again, so now we have “Favorite Friday.” Please enjoy “Raj to the Rescue: Perky Plants” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:20

Narrator: Male

Raj to the Rescue: Perky Plants Story Excerpt:

Then Raj looked at the plants in the garden.  They were drooping over, and their leaves were wrinkled and squished looking.  Raj knew the plants were wilting in the sun.  “Mom, dad… Can I give the plants a drink?  I think they’re thirsty too.”  Raj asked his parents.

“Of course,” his mom said.  “You guessed our next step in the garden.” She had finished the last of the planting while Raj and his dad got their cups and pitcher.  “Come with me.”  Raj followed his mom.  She led him to the side of the house.  There was a watering can and a faucet.  Raj’s mom turned on the faucet and filled the watering can.  Raj picked it up. The can was a little heavy, and the water sloshed around inside it.  Raj slowly and carefully carried the can over to the garden.  He wanted to be sure the water stayed in the can until he was ready to pour it out.

Raj got to the garden and tipped the watering can just a little so that the water could gently sprinkle on the plants.  Soft rain trickled from out of the can and onto the broccoli plants.  The earth drank the water right up and changed from a light brown into a deep dark brown.  Raj moved forward slowly making sure each broccoli plant had enough to drink. He tilted the can further and further until the last drop dripped out.

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

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.

Today’s Meditation: 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.

A Fuzzy Friend: a kid’s relaxation and bedtime story

A Fuzzy Friend: a kid’s relaxation and bedtime story

Helen and Brianna go outside to play. They find a fuzzy friend in the backyard. What will they learn from the fuzzy wuzzy caterpillar?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:01
Narrator: Female

A Fuzzy Friend Story Excerpt:
Brianna looked out the window and saw that the sun was shining brightly.  “It’s really nice outside. Why don’t we play in the yard?” she said.
Then Helen said, “Great!” and both girls headed out the back door to play.  They started on the swing set.  Talking and laughing, the girls rocked the swings back and forth, higher and higher.  Soon, Helen and Brianna were nearly as high as they could go, and so the girls began to slow down. As they slowed, the swings moved back and forth, lower and lower until they were almost still.

Then Brianna and Helen hopped off the swings.  “Let’s go exploring!” Helen said.
Brianna grinned and nodded her head in agreement. Next, the two girls headed towards the back of the yard where there was some taller grass and more trees.  “There’s usually something back here.”  Helen said.  “I’ve found butterflies, toads, and snakes.”
“Cool!” Brianna said. “I wonder what we’ll find today?”

Today’s Meditation: Today, notice loving energy flowing through your body, from your feet up to your head.
