When you are comfortable, close your eyes. Take a deep breath, and as you exhale, feel how good it is to relax. Take another deep breath and as you exhale, feel yourself getting heavier in your chair. Now on the third deep breath and as you exhale feel a warm wave of relaxation begin to roll down, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Now continue to breathe naturally, you start to become aware of the deep feeling of relaxation that is beginning to permeate you entire body. You are now letting go, you are feeling at ease, you are now becoming more relaxed with each breath.

You may feel that your body is becoming very heavy, so heavy that you are slowly sinking into your chair. In just a few moments, this feeling will change and the heaviness is replaced by the feeling of being light. Now your body begins to float up, slowly, effortlessly, higher and higher. You see yourself moving up through the clouds, and you watch the earth becoming smaller and smaller.

You now find yourself far out in the cosmos, suspended but you are continuing to float in space. You have no physical sensations, except a feeling of freedom of weightlessness, you feel no fear, you feel absolute trust and protection, and you now have the inner knowing that, you are filled and surrounded by the universal light.

As you look back at the earth, it looks like a small ball of shining blue green light about the size of your fist. Now you see the earth surrounded in a rose pink light. This is a light of protection, of love and peace. Now you feel yourself being drawn, back to the earth. As you slowly descent through the first few layers of the atmosphere you notice how warm the sunlight is. You now find yourself in a brilliant soft blue sky dotted with large puffs of clouds.

Slowly the biggest and most beautiful rainbow appears it really captivates your attention. Now you head towards the rainbow and its magnificent brilliant color.
