It has been proven that by spending time out in nature can boost our mood. In this wonderful meditation, Lauren has us visualize a place where we may have been in nature and experience the place once again through our mind’s eye.
Through my minds eye, I was taken back to one of the most beautiful places in nature I have ever been fortunate to go, called Eagle River Nature Center, the gateway to Chugach State Park, located 45 minutes north of Anchorage, Alaska.
I remember taking this one interpretive loop trail that began slightly downhill, through various tree stands, lush vegetation and abundant wildflowers. As I followed the trail, it opened up to a wooden platform, crossing a body of water. I looked to my left and there was two majestic mountains, which are part of the Chugach Mountain Range, standing tall against the deep blue sky. As I looked at this picturesque site, I was overwhelmed with peace and gratitude. Continuing walking, I began hearing waterfowl in the distance as the platform winds around until it reached land once again. Following the trail, I am lead through more lush vegetation and abundant wildflowers until it reached the Nature Center. What a fantastic experience!
This is truly a wonderful meditation to listen to! It’s a great escape for our mind. Visualizing this beautiful place in nature has not only relaxed me, but has fortified me! Thank you, Lauren! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
