Candle of Relaxation Intervention

Imagine that you are staring into the light of a beautiful candle…

A candle of perfect relaxation…
Imagine that you can see a bright light dancing there…

And I wonder what colours can you see? Can you see the oranges and the reds?
Or perhaps you can see the blues and the greens? Or the yellows and the whites..
Bright lights burning there…

And the warmth from the light begins to soften and melt the wax around the wick…
And as the wax warms and softens… slowly but surely it begins to melt…
It begins to melt… and slowly flow down the sides of the candle…

Until soon the soft wax melts into the candle holder…
Until soon the soft wax moulds itself into the shape of the candle holder…

And in many ways you are like that candle…
A beautiful candle of relaxation…
And your subconscious mind is like that bright flame that dances through the ages…
Casting light into the darkness and helping you to find your way through doubt and uncertainty…
And in many ways your muscles are like that soft warm wax…
And the chair you are sitting in is your candle holder…
And slowly but surely you too are beginning to melt into the chair…

Melt into a state of deep and profound relaxation…
