This meditation is particularly useful when worried or overrun with lots of different thoughts or questions.

  • Close your eyes and begin to breathe in gently through your nose, filling up your lungs, and then exhaling through your mouth, expelling all the breath in your body.  Take a few deep breaths and then continue, more gently, in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  • Focus completely on your breath, letting go of all other thoughts.
  • Imagine a beautiful blue sky.
  • If a thought appears, imagine it as a white cloud, and as you exhale, gently blow the cloud away, leaving a beautiful blue sky.
  • Continue to focus on the blue sky, gently blowing away any new thoughts, feelings or clouds that may appear.
  • If you are finding this difficult, imagine a warm sun in the sky, feel the suns warmth.  Let go and feel the sun warm you, and ultimately relaxing you.
  • Continue to relax and let go, enjoying complete serenity.
  • When you feel ready, invite one of the clouds into the blue sky.  Focus on this one thought and allow yourself to deal with it in isolation.
  • When ready, continue, dealing with each of your thoughts or issues one by one.  At any time you may choose to gently blow away any thoughts you do not wish to focus on and just enjoy the peace and the calm of the blue sky or choose to look at a different thought.
