Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:49

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.
