· Get comfortable in a chair while closing your eyes and clearing your mind. Picture a clear stream of water slowly flowing by. As you look more closely at the water, you notice leaves, twigs, fish, and tiny objects of all different shapes, sizes, and colors flowing continuously by.
· Now visualize yourself standing beside the stream, watching everything coming toward you. Imagine that you are watching for your thoughts, wishes, or feelings. Watch them come downstream, as they come closer to you, just watch them come and go; begin with 1 minute and work up to 5 minutes.
· When you are ready, open your eyes and bring your attention back to your immediate surroundings.
