I found this on a website called Free Will Astrology written by Rob Bresny.  I thought what a great way to release stress with a meditation visualizing soaring up in the sky feeling free.  So for that I thank you Rob.

Now if you can take the tip of a tape measure with one hand then put that arm outstretched then take the tape measure with the other hand holding it at the base and outstretch that arm. Now with the same hand hold on to the tape measure so it doesn’t close and see the length from the tip of one middle finger to the other. If this is too hard for you get someone to help  measure the distance from the tip of one middle finger to the other. Do you have a wingspan similar to that of a hawk? Eagle? Osprey? The mythical thunderbird? Pterodactyl?

Now lie on your back with your arms outstretched. Close your eyes and visualize yourself hovering and swooping above the treetops. Feel the wind on your skin, blowing your hair, how fast or slow you can go. How free you feel. You can go anywhere you want. You are free as a bird. 

What do you see below you? People, trees, lakes, mountains; it’s your flight you can go where ever you want for how long you want to go. 

When you are ready to come down make sure you fly back from wherever you go. Then just like a bird land in a familiar place. Then once landed you can slowly open your eyes and bring your arms back down to your sides.

Sit up and take a few cleansing breaths before standing and make sure your arms are ok. They had a real workout. If you were gone flying for more than 10 minutes sit and drink a glass of water before standing.
