485. The Colorful Ocean: a guided meditation and story for kids

Tanya the Sea Turtle goes for a swim by herself and enjoys the beautiful colors of her ocean neighborhood.

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:41

The Colorful Ocean Excerpt:

 Tanya the Sea Turtle was swimming in the beautiful green-blue ocean waters that surrounded Ahway Island. Sunlight streamed through the clear and shallow waters, the light causing the ocean to sparkle beautifully all around her.
Tanya’s front flippers stroked through the water in a soft, relaxed motion. It felt safe and calming to be surrounded completely by the smooth, warm waters all around her entire body.
Tanya was no longer a baby but not quite an adult yet. She had been born in these waters, but for the first part of her life, she had stayed close to her family. Only recently had she begun to venture out on her own, exploring the waters farther away from Ahway Island’s shores.

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

483. Found Friends: a meditation and story for bedtime

Wilbur goes on a walk with Sam. The walk takes them in a new direction and they meet some new neighbors!

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:20

Found Friends Excerpt:

Wilbur the Dog was lying in a bright warm sunbeam when he heard a faint jingle. He sat up and lifted his years. He heard the jingle again. Wilbur jumped up onto all four paws and ran over toSam. Sam had adopted Wilbur when he was a small pup. Wilbur ran in excited circles around Sam. It was time for a walk! They were going on a walk!

Wilbur was so excited Sam had a hard time getting the blue leash attached to Wilbur’s collar. Finally, the leash clicked and Wilbur stood perfectly still at the door, waiting for it to open. As soon as the door moved, Wilbur put his front paws on it and pushed it open the rest of the way. He bolted out the door, pulling Sam behind him.

“Slow down, Wilbur,” Sam said.

The little dog scrambled to turn the corner. Wilbur wanted to make sure they really were taking the right path for the LONG walk. They were! Wilbur wagged his tail in excitement.

As they walked down the street, Wilbur’s nose tickled with all the different smells outside! The first smell he identified was a chipmunk. Definitely a chipmunk. The next smell, Wilbur paused to sniff a bit longer.Was the scent a squirrel or a mouse?

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

477. Moving Day: a mindful story and relaxation for kids

Grace is moving to a new home on Ahway Island, but is worried about making new friends.

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:13

Moving Day Excerpt:

It was a cold winter morning but Grace had hardly noticed. Grace was just too excited to even think about the cold. Today, Grace’s family was moving to a new house!

 

Grace was a little sad, of course. She had been happy in her previous home where she had lots of friends. But mom and dad told her that Ahway Island was a wonderful place to live and that she would make lots of new friends. Plus, she could still visit her old friends sometimes.

 

Grace squirmed in her seat in the train.

 

“Mom, will the moving truck be at our house when we get there?”

 

“No, honey, but it’ll get there soon after we arrive.”

 

“How much longer will the train take before we get there?”

 

“Not too long,” said Dad, “just a few more minutes.”

 

“This is a great train, Jun,” said Mom. “What do they call it around here? The uh, ‘Sparkling Train,’ is that right?”

 

“That’s right, said Grace’s dad. “It goes all around the island.”

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