Taking a little break from the number crunching--budgets...which don't want to balance after I've spent the past two days entering a bazillion numbers into the accounting software (arrrgh!).
I know a lot of you will be traveling by plane this week, and just wanted to pass on a little something to think about. Whenever I fly, as soon as I sit down on the plane, the first thing I do is close my eyes, and visualize the plane completely surrounded by a white ribbon of light. With my eyes still closed, I mentally draw that ribbon up, so the plane is connected to the heavens above. I keep that picture in my mind, and say a little prayer (hmmm, How Far is Heaven by Los Lonely Boys just came on the radio...interesting). I ask the Divine One to hold this plane in his care throughout the flight, and I thank him. Once the plane reaches the runway, as it begins the approach for take off, I close my eyes again, visualizing the plane with the white ribbon of light being pulled up into the sky. And I hold that visual as long as I need to. I find this has a calming affect on me. If things get bumpy, I close my eyes again, inhale, and hold the visual of the plane and the ribbon of light always stretching upwards, in my mind (don't forget to exhale). Stay focused on the vision as long as necessary. Once the plane lands at the next airport, and reaches the terminal, I close my eyes, and thank him once again. I do it everytime, and it works for me.
Safe traveling to everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
P. S. Don't worry. I'm not gonna start preachin'. :)
