Imagining myself meditating in the forest, surrounded by the sounds, sights and smells enabled me to have the perfect getaway today. Imagery of that which is familiar to me enhances my mindfulness practice. Thank you for this beautiful meditation. Namaste 🙏🏻

You can do anything
I learned that if you really really let go and engage yourself in daydreaming, you will find yourself at peace and find yourself safe in a place you’ve never been before. You will find the peace and quiet you need after a long day of hard work.

The Smell of Earth
The ability to think and have your other senses be fooled is magnificent, the smelling of lilacs, the sound of green leaves shaking in summer trees, it’s beautiful.

I had a hard time focusing on just a forest alone, and my concentration was off. I’ll need to try again at a later date.

This was a hard one. Laying on the ground
on leaves and damp soil was kind of creepy. But I was able to stay pretty focused. I guess I’m getting the hang of keeping my mind still.

What I’ve learned
I am what I feel or think - thought attracts reality . If I put myself in a happy or calm place - It reflects and affects me psychically

Using all your senses in this visualization of a forest you love. Nature is a natural relaxer for me. Nice to do prior to bedtime.

What I’ve learned
Thoughts can guide us to a peaceful and calm place if it’s associated with our imagination, also brings reality with it which makes the experience more calming and good!

I love being in the woods. I learned how to apply my experience in the woods to this meditation with all the senses I really like this one a lot. But only can relax this way with guided meditation (not on my own).

I can always return to the trails
For 2 years following an epic hiking trip through philmont in cimaron new Mexico I would close my eyes and be transported back. Slowly this peaceful escape has faded away. Today, through this practice, it has returned. I know that in time and with repetition my mountain sanctuary will come back. Thank you for this gift.

Be somewhere calming
This is a great calming meditation. I used to picture myself on a beach, the waves lapping at my feet. Never thought to picture myself anywhere else. If you really visualise the smells and sounds, you can transport anywhere

I learned it’s ok to pause meditation and examine on my own first why the image of a forest not pleasant even though I love them. Able to confront the why and meditate solely on being in the moment with my guide.

Calming Forest 🌲🍁🍂🍃🌱
Lying on my back in a forest, listening to the sounds of the forest and taking in the sent was a calming & relaxing way to end the day. I still had trouble sleeping though but eventually did. My mind was in a thinking mode & I just went with it instead of listening to more meditations. I thought I could sleep longer this morning but was startled awake by a tenant belting out something in a foreign language. Rude & unnecessary! Oh well that’s apt. life 🙀

Gifts for the soul
These few minutes each day have a huge impact on your mind and body. It's kind of like the feeling you get when you give someone a gift and you see how much they love it. Except this peace you give to your soul and you deserve it! Amen.

Easing the stress from our bodies by imagining we are in nature’s finest outdoors, where there is one on one, inner connecting to find our balance to let out the negative energy and thoughts inside of us. Then proceeding on with the right mindset.

Back to the forest 🍁🍃🍂
I came back to this session because I knew it was very calming and relaxing. I needed this before I head out to work. I don’t really feel like going to work today and I think once I get there it’ll be all right. I’m just feeling crummy and dealing with some pain and I think once I get there the work will take my mind off of it. Thanks Aura🙏

This session would have been enhanced with some nature sounds
I typically complain about Aura sessions featuring nature sounds, but this one could have really used that level of production!

Serenidad
Una de las cuestiones más interesantes de estar observando y aplicando prácticas de la psicología y la meditación es que ahora le comienzo a encontrar sentido a muchas cosas. Comienzo a notar que de alhuna manera ya estaba todo acomodado para encontrar las cosas y aprender, sin embargo era más necesario hacerlo de esta manera que de otra. No puedo decir que he encontrado La Paz, tal vez no lo haga pronto o nunca, pero mientras la pueda experimentar en alguno que otro momento, bien valdrá la pena.

Serene Forest
I love guided imagery, so this was super relaxing to me. I could feel my shoulders lowering back down towards the end of the meditation, as well as longer breaths and my whole body unclenching. I think I preferred that there was not any forest noises in the background, because all of the senses were coming from within my mind. It kept me present, grounded, and it was able to be MY version of a serene forest. I felt completely immersed and at peace.

I noticed a deep feeling of calm descending on me, for a moment calming the chaos and worry that is currently my constant companion. For a moment, it was gone. Perhaps doing these short meditations throughout the day is what I really need right now.

This is one of my favorite meditations on here so far. Nature always has such a calming affect on me. I also find the voice on this meditation soothing. It was a nice day here. So I went into my backyard, laid on the grass while listening to this one. Now to go fix a cup of tea and continue to sit outside for a bit.

Deep Nature
As this session went on, I was more relieved and more tension was released. Imagining myself laying on the forest floor, feeling the moist yet clean air, while taking deep breaths was so relieving. Slowly releasing tension in your body as you deeply breath.

forest life
Many different images of a forest came to mind for me and as I bounced from image to image I was able to finally stop at the image which brought me the most joy. The forest at work with the children is definitely the most relaxing of all the forests i've encountered and I forever wish to relive those feelings and memories in my mind.

Smell of green
I rarely go to a forest unless I’m traveling, and even then, not too much. However, pictures of forests or stands of trees always intrigue me. “What’s really in there”? This meditation takes me into the forest and shows me, in my minds eye, exactly what’s there. I can feel the breeze, hear the birds, hear the stream, feel the pine needles soft layer. It’s difficult to describe the “smell of green “. For me, it’s fresh, sharp, pleasant and cool. I close my eyes it’s there for me. How wonderful. 🙏🌷

Forest visual
Keeping focused on the images, even when my mind starts wondering and panicking bringing it back to focus on the smells, what I can see how my body can feel what I can hear. The animals, the trees, the stream. Letting my body relax and letting go of my worries and letting them sink into the forest floor. Knowing I can be kept safe by the image of the forest and be safe within the trees, with the animals going about their day and looking out for me.

Stretching...
She had me lying on the pine needle floor of the forest breathing in the evergreen smell while feeling each needle beneath me. Everything gets totally still until I start to “feel” the trees growing around me. Then I start to grow with them and I end up on their tops - like riding a mosh pit of pine trees. I try to get up but I’m stuck to their sappy tips and they start to stretch me across the whole forest until I am paper thin. Feeling their green energy and their positive growth vibe resonating thru me I am cleaned, refreshed & reinvigorated. I wake up to the smell of evergreens, on the pine needle floor and my pockets are full of pinecones! Whoa...?!? ❤️🌲👍🏼

Out of body
I felt like I was out of my body, it felt so peaceful to relax in a way I can’t explain. I like to just barely move in in a motion /back and forth/ in circles/ because it’s help me be at peace.

I often forget to breathe, I hold my breath a lot when I get a strong emotional feeling. it's hard to remember to keep breathing. when I was finished I felt new if that makes sense, I had to look around me for a second I didn't know where I was! this could be the beginning of something great!

Forest Meditation not for me
When she talks about lying on the florist floor and pine needles, I imagined it damp and the pine needles were poking me some. Every time she mentioned the forest floor it threw me out of the breathing & relaxing because I was mentally "uncomfortable" again. Pretty funny! This is why there's all different meditations!

The forest
I particularly noticed the cool forest air that wafted into my nostrils and lungs, filling my belly. Then gently moving out of my body. This meditation was a peaceful one with the breath and the sounds of nature in the forest. I think I will imagine myself lying in a forest more often. 😊

Mini Vacation...

Smiling 😊
Having spent oodles of time in forests in my youth, playing, enjoying nature and camping on family vacations, it was easy for me to visualize stretching out on a forest floor covered in pine needles with my head resting on a moss-covered rock, listening to the peaceful music of a softy babbling brook accentuated by birdsong, while the pine branches above gently swayed in perfect time to the music of the brook. The dappled sunlight warmed my relaxed body, leaving me smiling at the deep sense of serenity. Thank you for this recommendation, Cyndee! 🙏♥️🙏

It was beautiful I saw , I felt , I could smell everything . I cried. the beauty by which I be held inside my head is amazing .what I could feel by thoughts is powerful .

I beheld beauty .

I felt amazing in the forest. I was calm and didn’t have a care in the world. ❤️

Soothing...
Glad I did this one again! Hectic week, negative people and having my house painted had me a feeling a little off the beam. But then this meditation came up so I did it and it worked. I got comfy, shut my eyes & I was instantly transported to Canada at our old cottage where I spent two weeks every summer growing up. I was laying on the softest pine needle bed under the gently swaying towering pines... the delectable aroma of musty pine & warmed dirt activated my memory banks as they poured out details of the blue sky, bright sun & cool breeze... ahh... I laid there until I got rid of all the weight of my earthly problems & knowledge & would start to float! Thanks Aura for reminding me of the truth I learned as a child - there really are no problems (outside of the Math class) and ... All is right in the world! ❤️☮️🍀

I learned that maybe I need to spend a little more time inside before us because when I try to meditate being in one it’s hard for me to picture it because I don’t spend much time at Forest my special place is more like a volcanic island surrounded by wateri if I had visualized that maybe I could’ve been more peaceful.

Bad vibes , be gone!
Being alone most of the day leaves me only with my thoughts. I’m the only opinion .the only judge. Im not aware if what I have to think is self -constructive or self-demolishing . Usually I would think meditation is for weenies , but now I’m a different person in a way !A different perspective has been opened after this session, whatever decision I make about myself, is one that will lead to total happiness. Bad vibes be gone! Thanks Aura!!

That was enjoyable!
I've listened to this relaxing meditation before. This go round I allowed myself to envision the little path between my house and the back door of the dining hall at the camp I lived and worked at in Lake Arrowhead, CA more than 20 years ago! What a wonderful, spiritual time in my life! Of course, had I stayed on I never would have met my wife and fathered our three kids in the last twenty years! That takes precedence I think!

This meditation is amazing!! In the forests of Alaska , I became speechless. Water, so cold, pure and clear, bathed your body. Suddenly, I proclaimed: “This is not just a forest: It is a cathedral.

I really enjoyed this meditation, I more pictured a meadow off of a forest I’d seen in a movie and I could picture myself there.

I learned that putting myself there in the forest was felt wonderful to me & reminded me of when my daughter was a baby & we were in Bala in the forest by a stream ❤️

forest
it was a mixture of a place I've been and a place I haven't. on a cliff and I could see a great view. Nature feels more real and intense than anything. I can breath and feel a calmness

I learned that I need to relax myself more and to be calm and positive not negative all the time.
I learned that I need to relax myself more and to be more calm and positive and not anxious panicky and depressed and moody and negative all the time and too self conscious about myself all the time. Also I need to stop thinking the worst all the time and to think the best sometimes instead. Life’s short enjoy it.

Very nice meditation. Good intention. Although, for one who has traveled on oceans and forests, Nature quickly teaches you that she is the boss. BE ALERT! Sights, sounds, smells and what you hear. For example, when you hear birds singing - and suddenly they stop, intense quiet = there can be a predator nearby. You learn to “read” the forest. Even still, a nice meditation. ❤️🙏☮️

i’m not sure the titling of this entry is being used correctly but that’s the only word i can think of to describe it. this session helped me relax and dig deeper to think about the things in my life that make me happy and focus on the positive instead of the negativity in the world.

Lying on forest floor, not for me
I noticed that I was fine until told to imagine myself lying on the forest floor. Not something that I would do.

Wednesday 6/10
I’m a big fan of being in nature, so this calmed my brain down a lot before going to sleep, especially as my thoughts started drifting to an idyllic forest (like something out of Bambi in springtime, minus the deer hunters). Thank you for this, Aura!

Probably just me
I really tried to get into this one and love it but I could not bring myself to focus. Maybe it’s just me, though. I could use more practice on allowing myself to focus on a meditation

In Nature
There is nothing more peaceful and relaxing than sitting outside, breathing fresh air in nature. I always find myself at peace with my mind, body, and spirit whenever I walk on the nature path near my house and breathe in the fresh air I find myself feeling better when I’m having a bad day. I highly recommend going nature walks

forest
picturing my surroundings as a forest, tall trees reaching up to heights i can’t even see, mist covering the dewy forest floor, the sun, not fully risen yet is beaming just the right amount of light. this is what i pictured, and it gave me peace

Smelling...
Lying in bed I closed my eyes breathed in slow and deep and was transported to the a White Mountains in New Hampshire. Having visited there a couple times, I just love the clean, pine smell, sparkling rivers and blue skies. I lay there enthralled with the beauty & majesty of the Mountains in the distance and the quietness of the earth around me. I breathe in deep as the musty woodsy smell fills my whole body and I turn into a big smiling emoji!! ❤️😃🍀

I learned that I can visualize well. Focusing on my breathing stresses me out and I lose all sense of focus and calm.

Forest of Dreams
I can picture this so clearly. It’s a place I’ve been again and again, a place I feel serene and safe. But somehow it takes a reminder to take myself there, to take even three minutes to find that peace of serenity. This helped me remember that I am worth it. I deserve to feel serene and safe. I deserve to take three minutes to find my calm.

This is such a relaxing scene to visualise

My favorite place to be.
The forest instantly calms me. I used to do this when I was younger and it’s still my favorite place to think of if I need to relax.

The forest
It is amazing how much imagining yourself in a different place from where you are and attempting to experience it with all five of your senses, can I have a relaxing effects on your body and mind. For some reason I found myself able to be more than what engaged in the Forest meditation then any visualization meditation I have done on this app prior. I found myself not only visualizing The forest but able to smell the Pineneedles and what the earth here at the stream and singing birds and in general to appreciate the forest as a multi sensory experience I credit the aura app for him for being my ability to meditate thank you so much for doing this. I am also grateful that aren’t as providing me with this coming forest meditation. Have a great day everyone I hope you find your peace.

I felt very much like I was out in the forest, breathing in the fresh air, it was very refreshing.
I learned that if I invole my full thoughts to exactly what the meditation is about, I can actually put myself in the position to feel calmer & more at peace.
