Sit quietly, with your hands on your thighs, right hand on right thigh, left hand on your left thigh, and close your eyes. Take a couple of deep breathes, and relax. Now think of a memory, a wonderful memory when you felt happy, joy or love and once you have that memory in your mind, squeeze your right hand. Now bring in brighter colors to the memory and keep on squeezing your right hand. Now if there were sounds let them become clearer and more precise and keep on squeezing your right hand. If there were smells, wonderful smells or even bring in your favorite smells like flowers or a fresh spring rain, squeeze your right hand tighter. Feel the happiness in your body and let it spread through your entire body and squeeze your right hand even more. Now release your right hand. Relax and take a deep breath. Now think of that memory again, and make it even more fantastic, the feelings of happiness and joy bursting through you and squeeze your right hand. Make it stronger, even stronger. Now relax your right hand again. Take a deep breath and relax. Now think of that wonderful joyful memory again and experience it in every cell of your being, and squeeze your right hand.
