Getting comfortable, I became conscious of my breath. Following my in breath from my nostrils to my belly, I began squeezing all my muscles at once. After a short pause of my breath, I let go of my breath with a sigh, loosening all of my muscles. Feeling the wonderful relaxing effects of squeezing and releasing my muscles, I was ready to go on my cosmic adventure.
In my mind’s eye, I visualized myself in the middle of Denali National Park. After seeing the sun go behind the mountains of the Alaskan Range and hues of red light up the sky, darkness started to blanket the land. Laying down, I noticed the vast darkness of space illuminated by speckles of light. Gazing at this memorizing sight, I soon closed my eyes and felt myself getting lighter. Soon after, I found myself floating upward in the sky towards the stars. Floating, I noticed my arms had turned into wings and I began to fly among the stars. Flying among the stars, I was greeted by the moon, sun and other planets. Flying, I felt just how expansive I really am! There really is no beginning nor end! Then out of nowhere, I felt a gravitational force pull me back towards earth. I opened my eyes and felt around. I was back in this body of mine once again. Looking at the night sky, I felt the same expansiveness within as I did when I was flying among the stars. I knew that the entire universe and I are one of the same. Thank you, Irene!
