I took a glance at what was going on inside my body, feeling where the anxiety and tension were---mostly in my head and my stomach, and releasing these feelings from me. I thoroughly enjoyed taking a break away from my body, but when it came time to come back, I found myself crying. I didn't want to come back---I wanted to stay there, forever.
I know that I can go back to that beautiful meadow whenever I want, even with my eyes
open and while I'm working, but boy do I wish that I didn't have to work any more and that I could just bathe in the sweetness of the flowers and warmth of the sun as long as I wanted for the rest of my life. Is that selfish? Presently, I don't think so. I've endured much from my job with the United States Postal Service over the last 21 years, and it's taken its toll on my mind and body. But I owe myself some peace and serenity aside from the busyness of my particular work-area.
I just wanted to tell everyone how I felt about
my first experience with guided imagery, and that it was great but I didn't want to come back to the real world. I have Panic Disorder and when I have a bad attack all I want to do is either sit in the sunlight or sit on the sofa and watch "America's Funniest Home Videos". I find that watching funny videos or looking at funny pictures eases my troubled mind, so I spend some time looking for funny stuff online.
Edit: Limited religious references are allowed (ie. "my prayers are with you" or a brief quote as part of a larger post). thank you for your understanding.
