Changing Winds: a kids’ relaxation and calming tale

Changing Winds: a kids’ relaxation and calming tale

During a relaxing sail Sandy the sailboat notices the changing winds. To keep her crew safe from the storm, she heads back to the harbor.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:31

Narrator: Male

Changing Winds Excerpt:

Sandy motored away from the harbor to a spot where she could put up her sails. The colorful stretches of fabric filled up with wind until they were stretched tight. Sandy could feel the wind moving her through the water and took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) relaxing in the peace of the morning. The wind carried the sailboat out and Sandy enjoyed gliding across the water. Sandy looked around. She loved to gaze at the deep turquoise blue water. Then the sailboat noticed the sky looked different. On one side, the sky was growing dark. On her other side it was very bright. Sandy knew immediately what was happening. A storm was on its way.

Color Surprise: a meditation and story for kids

Color Surprise: a meditation and story for kids

Rumina the rainbow is looking for a way to bring a color surprise to the world below the clouds. Will she find an opening?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Sky Dragon” and “All Smiles” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Color Surprise!” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:56

Narrator: Female

Color Surprise Excerpt:

Rumina looked and looked and looked.  The clouds were squished tightly together.  She just couldn’t find a spot to peek through, with the sunlight.  The clouds rolled on, forming peaks and valleys.  Rumina got an idea.  Maybe if she climbed to the top of a tall cloud, she could find an opening below.  So she looked around for a tall cloud, and she found it.  It was enormous, a mountain of fluff, towering over the others.  Surely, the little rainbow could see everything from there.

So Rumina climbed up, up, and up the magnificent cloud.  She was working hard and needed a break, so the little rainbow stopped on a flat portion halfway up and took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath).  Rumina thought about smiling people and animals, and glowing plants!  She could do this.  Rumina would find a way to bring some cheerfulness and hope to the land below the cloud cover. Finally, the little rainbow reached the top, and peered across the puffy landscape.  She noticed on the other side of the mountainous cloud, there was a large opening!  Sunshine was streaming through it, lighting up the earth.  That was the spot to bring some color to the world!

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

Rockin’ Sharks: a kid’s story and guided meditation

Rockin’ Sharks: a kid’s story and guided meditation

The ocean is filled with music. Two rockin’ sharks, Shayla and Santiago, search out the source of the beats and, when they find it, dance.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:55
Narrator: Female
Rockin’ Sharks Excerpt:

“Do you hear that?” Shayla asked Santiago.
“Yes. I’ve never heard anything like it. What do you think it is?” Santiago shark asked.
“I don’t know.” Then a grin crept across her face and she said, “I think I like it. Do you want to see if we can find it?”
The other shark smiled back and said, “That sounds like fun. Let’s go!” Shayla and Santiago circled around each other trying to discover to the source of the mysterious sound. After a couple of circles, both sharks knew the direction of the sound. So, they exchanged knowing smiles and swam in that direction. As they approached the source of the sound, it changed. Now the sharks could hear music, faintly at first. The music grew stronger and louder. Up ahead the sharks spotted a dark shape at the surface of the water.

Sky Dragon: a mindful story for kids

Sky Dragon: a mindful story for kids

Dragon follows the friendly birds for a fun flight. Our sky dragon flies even higher and joins the air craft in their games.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:22
Narrator: Male
Sky Dragon Excerpt:

Above the trees Dragon admired the beautiful island and noticed something new down below. The construction crew had been busy, Dragon could tell. There was a bridge leading to another island. Dragon thought about exploring it, but before Dragon could head that direction a gentle rhythm filled the air. Dragon smiled, familiar with that beat, and turned to see Harmony helicopter. She was flying along with Hawk the red airplane. The two flew together with a similar grace and accuracy as Gerry and Carrie. Dragon waved hello and headed towards the aircraft. In no time the three friends reached each other and began dancing across the sky.

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

Buried Treasure: a soothing story and meditation for children

Buried Treasure: a soothing story and meditation for children

Allie gets ready for treasure hunt with her friends by hiding pirate clues around the park to lead them to the buried treasure.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:01

Narrator: Female

Buried Treasure Excerpt:

As soon as they got to the park Allie looked around, to see if anyone was already there. She wanted to be sure no one saw where she buried the treasure and set the clues. The swings were empty. No one was on the slide or the monkey bars. Even the ball fields were quiet.

There wasn’t a sign of Andy, Helen or Owen. Allie smiled mischievously. First, she would bury the pirate treasure chest. Allie skipped to the sand box and using the sand scooper she dug a hole big enough to fit the chest. Allie set the chest into the open pit and then removed five golden rocks. She gently moved the sand back to cover the top of the closed chest. Soon the sandbox looked as if the sands had never been moved.  Allie gently placed one of her golden rocks in the sand above the chest.

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

Searching for Sweets: a calming tale and meditation

Searching for Sweets: a calming tale and meditation

Halle the hummingbird is feeling hungry. She goes searching for sweets among the plants. The little hummingbird sees something red. Will she find a treat?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories this week, “Best Balance” and “Polite Parrot!” Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Welcome to Favorite Friday! Please enjoy “Searching for Sweets” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:06
Narrator: Female
Searching for Sweets Excerpt:

Halle began her search for flowers.  She especially enjoyed the nectar of red flowers and hoped she would be able to find some.  The little hummingbird hovered in the air, and looked around.  She saw lush green grass, and deep green ivy winding around and climbing the trees.  There were lots of green plants, but she didn’t see any red flowers.  Halle zipped on, zigging and zagging, until she found a garden.

The little hummingbird hovered as she took in the view.  The plants were lined up in neat little rows.  Halle noticed that the garden had cucumber plants, with little cucumbers resting on the ground, busy growing.  There were broccoli plants.  Dark green leaves surrounded the round clusters of broccoli.  Leafy spinach filled its row, and orange carrots barely peaked out of the ground.  The vegetables were beautiful, but Halle needed some nectar to eat.

Just then the little hummingbird spotted something red.  She zipped in closer, hoping it was a flower.   Halle hovered over the red, her wings moving so quickly they were just a blur.  It was a tomato.  Halle was disappointed.  The little hummingbird took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and decided to keeping looking for flowers.

Today’s Meditation: Today, you will focus on relaxing your body a little bit at a time.  Starting with your feet, moving up to the top of your head, and ending with a focus on your entire body, you are sure to feel calm and relaxed.
