Tonight, before you go to sleep, meditate on all things soft and gentle. You can think about the day or anything that comes to mind, so long as the image or feeling that comes out is one of softness, tenderness, or gentleness.
I will give you a few examples to get you started. This can be a journal writing exercise as well. You will probably end up feeling very calm and peaceful. You may even end up with a beautiful bedtime verse. Ready to give it a try?
Okay, let’s see…
Soft and gentle was the day today…
gentle breezes on the beach..
The warmth of the sun gently caressing me…
My daughter’s soft skin that I wanted to protect from the skin’s rays
How soft my hair felt after using my new coconut conditioner
My soft slippers I am wearing on my feet right now..
The soft blanket and covers that I will curl up under soon
The soft chorus of frogs I hear singing their lullaby in our pond out back..
Soft, gentle, tender is this Spring night
There is a peaceful softness that comes from a silent but happy household: after the “good nights” are said, the hugs and tender kisses are made..
The soft pillow awaits…sweet tender dreams are there somewhere patiently waiting.
Good night, soft and gentle Spring night!
