Stop for a moment and look at this photo. (Yes this is a real place, not that I have been there but apparently it’s Golden Eye Hotel, St Mary Jamaica – in case you were wondering 🙂 ). But let’s put the details aside for a moment.
Gaze deeply into the photo. Take a big deep breath in and when you exhale, breathe out towards the photo and follow your breath.
Next imagine yourself in the photo.
Where are you? Are you swimming in the water or standing on the balcony?
Now bring the photo to life. Close your eyes and move around in there.
Feel the water against your body, or the wood against your feet.
Engage your senses.
Can you hear the sounds of the water, or birds?
Is the air fresh or warm? Can you feel the sun pouring warm golden sunshine onto your head and back?
What do you want to do now you’re here?
You know, you can do anything!
How do you feel?
Let the water wash your frustration away.
What would it take for you to play? Maybe you want to do a bomb into the water or swing from the trees.
Are you smiling yet?
