452. Farming Friends: a bedtime story and meditation

Felicity the Farm Truck and Trenton the Tractor spend the morning doing their chores and enjoying the beauty of the farm.

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:13

Farming Friends Excerpt:

The lights on the farm flickered as the farmer got ready for another big day. Felicity the Farm Truck blinked her lights and yawned. It was time to start working. Although Felicity didn’t like waking up when it was still dark outside, she did enjoy watching the sun rise. It would be a while before that happened, so she got started on her morning chores.

 

Felicity’s first job was to carry people to their morning tasks. The little green truck rolled across the bumpy ground bouncing as she went. The people riding couldn’t help but laugh, as their ride rolled up and down the fields.

 

Once everyone was ready to go, Felicity had a moment to enjoy the sunrise. She settled in for the show, and took a deep dragon breath, in and out. Then the farm truck heard a creak. The doors of the big red barn were opening! She turned and rumbled over to the barn, eager to see her best friend. She hoped Trenton the Tractor would hurry out and share this beautiful moment with her.

429. Leafy Fun! a relaxation and story for your nap time routine

Lisa and her parents have fun cleaning up autumn leaves.

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:36

Leafy Fun! Excerpt:

Lisa gazed out the window at her front yard. All she could see was leaves. There wasn’t even a glint of green – neither green grass nor green leaves. Instead the ground was a wash of warm, autumnal colors: all shades of brown, sprinkled here and there with pops of red, orange, and golden yellow. Lisa knew what that meant. Time to rake leaves!

Just then her mom walked into her room and said, “Hi, hon! I could use your help with something.”

Lisa turned to look at her mom. “Leaves?”

“How did you know?” Her mom smiled.

Lisa’s dad came into her room, looked out the window, and said “Well, I don’t know, dear. Maybe we should wait. That maple tree still has one leaf on it.”

All three of them laughed, but Lisa said, “You’re silly, dad! But we should really clean the yard today, while the weather’s still good! We could get snow soon!”

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

420. Autumn Clean-Up: a relaxation and story for your nap time routine

Joe helps out with his favorite chore: cleaning up leaves with the leaf blower!

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:52

Autumn Clean-Up Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled into the room, waking up Joe. He sighed and stretched. It was a Saturday morning in early autumn – Joe’s favorite time of the year! Those crisp, cool days, when the leaves fell down from the trees like multi-colored rain. Those chilly evenings when Joe could curl up with a book in front of a cozy fire.

Joe and his sister Theresa both had to help with chores around the house, and in the fall, Joe’s job was to help clean up the yard, especially by clearing up all the leaves on the lawn. But Joe didn’t mind. Actually, raking and blowing leaves was his favorite chore. He loved making big piles of leaves on the lawn and he always had fun using the big leaf blower.

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