Initiate Calming Voice


For today’s exercise we will be working with a simpler time in your life

As I count backward 

(Ten)

Focus on your breathing

Pay attention to the sound of the fan

Or to the heat breathing from the register

(Nine)

Start with your arms and legs

Really feel them 

Acknowledge the weight they carry

And still feeling how much they push everyday

(Eight)

Return your focus to the long exhalations

In through your nose

Slight hold

And

Back 

Out 

Again

(Seven)

You and resting perfectly still

And paying attention to your breathing

You notice that it is quiet

So incredibly quiet

When you want it to be

(Six)

All of the things you think about

Worry about

Struggle with

They

Aren’t 

Here

(Five)

You are breathing and 

Focusing

On how you want to feel

Each moment

(Four)

The insanity of the constant race

Does not affect you here

In your only true sacred place

(Three)

Here you are

Even

Balanced

Free

(Two)

To become whatever you wanted to be

Before the world swallowed you up

Or you let it eat you every

Single 

Day

By the choices you make

Remember 

As you continue to breathe slowly

Focusing on the gradual release

And the realization that

(One)

You create the world around you
