Vitamin N
The desert botanical garden talked about the importance of outside time for kids at their annual members meeting this year. Vitamin N is what we get from outside time. This reminds me of all the time I spent outside as a kid. From sun up to sun down we played outside.

Mirror the reality you want to see. Your life is a reflection of the reality you’re in. If you’re around positive people you’ll have a positive life. Choose carefully ✌🏽❤️😂

I loved this imagery of sunshine and warmth. When I am cold or stressed, I tense up. So now, whenever I notice tension in my body I will try to internalize this idea of warm sunshine ☀️, especially with winter coming. Thanks, Lyndi

Sunshine☀️ Sunday ☀️Thank you☀️
Good Morning Everyone. Of course the Sun is not out. We get an hour more sleep that's a good thing if your home sleeping. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. I'm always up early it's my normal routine. I have to do a few things around the house before the children get up. I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this being a part of this Calm Respectful Caring Sharing Community on this App. I'm still new at this I like the idea that everybody is nice to one another and everybody gives good advice. It is really good when you don't know people and you write something and you get feedback good to have different opinions in different ways of thinking. Thank you all for being so Positive and Truthful to Me good or bad please always let you have it. I will check in later enjoy your morning.

I’m so grateful for the sunshine! Our energy changes. I feel calm and when you deep breathe my body warms up! I’m still warm from my Aura class. It’s rainy, now but I feel the rain washing and cleaning and the sunshine is with me! Enjoy your Beautiful Day! Keep the sun💡on you Sunday!

Sunshine is uplifting for me
This visualization couldn’t be more timely as I just got back from Florida and now it’s a cold snowy day here in Long Island. This sun visualization really helped put me in a better frame of mind. I love the sun, the warmth, and how good/energized my body feels. It lifts me out my depression and gives me a sense of well being.

Learning to stay positive by finding little things that make you happy makes you feel good inside and lets you feel free from reality. This lesson makes me go back to summer day when I would go out in the field, sit in the grass and watch the sunset go down until it was gone. It was my absolute favorite thing to do in the summer. It always made me think about all the the things in life that needs to change for the better by thinking positive and realizing their own actions. It also brought me joy and peace, showed me how you should show more gratitude towards certain things and how to cope with the things I struggle with by thinking about ways to improve myself for the better and so far I have:)

You can live in the sunniest place on Earth but you still have to open up to let the sunshine on you. Remarkably memories from your mind can help to recreate similar feelings and sensations from previous times. Minus the sunburn hopefully.

Rooted Again
I can truly appreciate this meditation since it’s the dead of the winter right now! I miss the sunny warm days and what a great way to bring it back! I love thinking back on beach vacations and using the memories to re-ground myself to the Earth. It’s easy to feel separated from Earth and nature in the winter...this meditation helps to change that and re-root you to warmth and happiness again!HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

Positive Sun
The Sun has always meant two things to me. First the Sun brings warmth and comfort and therefore safety. However the second is that the sun brings fire and burning and therefore danger. Like life itself, the key is to be able to balance the warmth without being burnt. We are constantly balancing danger with safety and there is a certain comfort in that.

It was so ironic that this just happened to be my meditation topic for today because it was raining all day long today in my town. From this lesson, I learned that I should take key times nd envision the sun in dark times. The sun is a vital source of life.

Sin límites
Todos tenemos exactamente el mismo tiempo. Lo que decidamos hacer con él es lo que nos acerca o aleja de lo que más nos importa. A veces por querer llevar el tiempo de otros, dejamos de apreciar lo que tenemos, olvidando nuestras raíces, planes y objetivos, además de apreciar lo poco o mucho que se nos atraviese. Es por eso que es necesario no nada más concentrarse en la razón sino en aquello que no pareciera del todo lógico, en aquello que no tiene límites naturales.

Much needed sunshine
It's supposed to be -10*F overnight with the wind chill well below that. My mustache froze while I shoveled 6" of snow from the walk tonight. My shoulders and back are tight from jumping up and down at a concert last night. Visualizing the warm, relaxing sunshine, lounging on the grass in an amphitheater by Lake Superior on a cloudless summer day was just what I needed right now.

Writing about happy thoughts & feelings was my goal for the day. This meditation helped me achieve the goal. Journaling on good days is just as important as journaling on hard days. If not, it looks like life is always hard, difficult, and frustrating.

The body is amazing
It really is amazing what the body can do. The ability to cultivate the feeling of warmth with just the mind really shows that you are the master of your own space. This meditation was also very enjoyable considering it's just over 20° where I live, so I appreciate the shared warmth!

Visualization exercises are always a bit of a challenge for me because I often imagine places I have been to before and then my mind wanders off to memories and past adventures. But this one felt different tonight! I entered feeling anxious and tired, now I’m left feeling more calm, still tired, but not as emotionally drained. The sunshine is within me already. If I can remember that when I feel anxious or tired or scared, I can calm my mind and return to my breath and heartbeat.

I am trying to get to a point where I feel like I at anytime I can just sit and imagine doing one of these meditations and really be able to get the same mental state.. emptying my mind and all of me is here and now.. This meditation got me to pause it and run outside where I could sit in the sunshine and feel everything lyndi was describing.. I loved it and she was very on point with the descriptions and I do believe that with a feeling as familiar at the sun on my skin.. I know I will be able to just close my eyes and imagine sitting there and soaking up the sun calmly and with a warm smile I know I feel each time I step into a sunlit space..🧘🏼‍♀️🌻☀️🕉💚

Had trouble
I could not visualize the sun. Too much inner turmoils. All I could see at first was a large swarm of insects dancing & moving about a dark sky like a large flock of birds do. I was able to change the insects to pinpricks of light so it looked like the universe was dancing & swirling about, but still no sun.

Warming...
The perfect timing of Aura! I awoke to -5 degrees this morning and this was meditation was waiting for me. So I eagerly played it and felt the suns warmth all over my body thanks to Lindys suggestions. It was warming and energizing me! I was attracting & soaking it all up like a big sun magnet-battery so I could stay warm all day and maybe shine some on others that are so focused on the cold. I could see my arms turning golden bronze with beads of sweat just like I was lying on the beach. I especially like the warmth on my head and face...ahh! Thanks Aura for helping me stay warm thru this winter by focusing on the warmth of the Sunshine instead of the coldness of the Mercury! After all “Where Focus goes, Energy flows!” ❤️🌞🍀

Beautiful Sunshine
After a few days of feeling low and stressed, I am grateful to have come across this meditation. Visualizing the sun all over my body soothed, cleansed and lit up my soul. I will embrace this feeling and give it to others. So many others have far less than I do so I will focus on what I do have in my life and be grateful.

I was able to depend on my mind to provide things I needed or longed for, as if I was in a blissful void rid of all physicality. The awareness of my conscious allowed myself to heal and warm and provide a stable environment. It taught me that we truly only depend on what we can provide ourselves in search of virtue.

Bathed in Sunshine
On a windy and colder day, I wanted to listen to a meditation where I could visualize warmth of the sunshine on my body. In this meditation, Lyndi gives us the warmth from the sun in a body scan type format, leaving us feeling refreshed. Visualizing the warmth of the sunshine on each part of my body, my muscles began to soften and relax. After a awhile, the warmth became so great that it began to penetrate through my skin and into my heart. With each heartbeat, this warmth began to flow throughout my entire body and eventually seep into my soul. Having my mind, body and soul being bathed in the warmth of this sunshine has left me with a sense of aliveness, a sense of peace and a heart full of gratitude!🌞

Sun shines suneshine
Thinking of warmer days.. figuratively and literally, of course. I am reminded of Oahu.. listening to the waves crash against the ocean and basking in the sun's rays. Little did I know that things would be different months later. The sun shining but only beinf able to enjoy its presence from indoors. Spring -- my favorite season. How we take for granted life's moments of feeling free and unburdened. Thinking of warmer days.. where we were able to not only feel the embrace of the sun, but the embrace of our loved ones. Looking forward to when we will meet again in different circumstances.

Timeless Still
I imagined that I sat on a hill and basked in the Sun’s warm rays. I felt comforted and imagined, if only for a few moments, that I had no goals, no aspirations, no distractions, no worries. I sat in the moment, timeless, still. Following the meditation, I felt well-rested and awake, although I was previously tired. I felt calmer and more relaxed.

Current events have been stressful. It’s effecting me mentally for sure. Laying down on my back helped with some of the tension but this meditation didn’t do much for me. Maybe it’s my visualization skills but I found that it was hard to imagine warm sunshine. Or maybe it was the fan.
