Narrator: Female

Love Is Story Excerpt:

“Then Mia asked, “How do you know if someone loves you? I know we say I love you. Are there other ways to know?”

Mia’s mom smiled and said, “If you watch and listen, you can see lots of ways.”

Mia sat up and asked, “How?”

Her mom responded, “People and animals show they care in lots of ways. Kids might invite you to play. A puppy or kitty might wait for you to walk in the door after school. You might see a cat feeding and snuggling with a little duckling along with all her kittens.”

Mia looked puzzled and asked, “A cat would take care of a different animal?”

Mia’s mom nodded. “Yes, that’s part of what makes it love. Doing something for someone, especially when you don’t have to, or when caring for them may even be difficult.”

Meditation Description: Feel your body fill with warmth and love as you send your loving energy to the world.

Friendly Flowers and A Bouncing Bumble Bee Story Excerpt:

“Beautiful morning isn’t it?” Summer the happy yellow flower said.  Summer thought every morning was a beautiful morning.  When it was sunny she enjoyed the light and the warmth, when it was rainy she enjoyed the refreshing water to drink, and when it was windy, Summer enjoyed the feel of the air as it circled her leaves and blossoms.  The yellow snapdragon said the sun made her feel like dancing.

“It sure is.”  Sawyer replied.  “I wonder if Bert will visit today?”  Bert was their friend the bumblebee.  He usually visited them on sunny days.

“I hope so.”  Summer said. “He always makes me laugh, the way he bounces around off of the flowers and grass.”  She began to giggle at the thought.

“I don’t know.” Sidney the purple snapdragon jumped into the conversation.  “Bert always seems to bounce off of me.  I better soak in some more sunshine so he doesn’t knock me over.”

Sawyer and Summer laughed.  “You’ll be fine Sidney.”  Sawyer said, “You always are.”  Sidney did tend to worry about things.   Sawyer and Summer helped him settle down when he needed help.  All three snapdragons were relaxing in the sunlight when they heard a Bzzzzzzz in the distance.  The sound grew louder and louder.  “Here comes Bert.”  Sawyer said as Sidney took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath) trying to relax.

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

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.

Monkeying Around Story Excerpt:

Alice and her mom left for the park.  The air was warm. Sunshine formed lace patterns as it filtered through the leaves of the trees and onto the sidewalk.  Cheerful red, orange, yellow, purple, and white flowers lined the path to the park.  Alice skipped next to her mom.  They were getting closer!  Soon, she saw the playground.  It was painted in blues and greens.  The sun was shining on the twisty slide, and Alice decided she would go there first. As they crossed into the playground, Alice looked at her mom to see if she could go play.  Alice’s mom nodded, and Alice ran over to the slide, quickly moving up the steps.  As she reached the top, Alice realized another girl was there.  The girl smiled and waved, giggling as she slid down the slide.  Alice waited for the girl to reach the bottom and then she too slide down the slide, giggling.  Alice reached the bottom and hopped off the slide, there was no sign of the little girl. Alice heard a giggle, turned around and saw the little girl at the bottom of the slide.

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

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.

Twirling Tugboat Story Excerpt:

The little tugboat began to think about what she might do today. Teagan’s job was to help big ships get into the narrow harbor. She loved to help out. The little tugboat knew when she helped the ships get in the harbor the people inside them were safe. She was proud to have such an important job. Was the captain finished yet? Teagan blew her foghorn. She was beginning to get antsy. The little tugboat wanted to be helping. “Easy there, Teagan, I know you love to help, we need to make sure you’re taken care of first. It’s hard to help others if you’re falling apart. You’re looking pretty ship shape. We’re almost done.” The captain said.

Meditation Description:  Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
