In my own morning spiritual disciplines, I often practice an aerobic walking prayer. While I have used a number of approaches, the following is one of the easiest. As I begin my walk, I simply notice the quality of my breathing and attempt to breathe deeply at a regular rate. After a few minutes, I change the focus of my breath. With each breath, I imagine healing light entering my body, permeating my mind and brain, neck and shoulders, heart and circulatory system, stomach, legs, and feet. As I exhale, I let go of any tension or stress I may be experiencing at the moment. When my mind wanders, I return to my focus on healing light without judgment or self-criticism. As I conclude my walk, I experience the healing light of God surrounding my body with energy and protection as I put on "the whole armor of God."
