Try this to get rid of emotional aches and pains:
- lie down comfortably and imagine that you are lying in the middle of a stream
- see the water flow around and through the center of your body
- as it flows through you, see it taking away debris, little by little
- do this for 10 minutes or more
- you can add whatever other calming imagery you like (sunny meadows, tree tops swaying gently under a breeze, birds flying in the sky…), but always return to focus on the water flowing through you
- add gentle music; maybe, something you know calms you or sounds of water flowing.
Another good place to do this meditation is in the shower.
