    My therapist, Ms. Pepper (yes that is her name) taught me something when I first started my appointments with her, relaxing visualization. She chose an ethereal beach setting that started me underwater just a few depths below the surface, while a blue betta fish approaches me. She introduces herself with the name "Aloe" and uses a mysterious power to detect my stress levels. Looking a little shocked, she concentrates on something, and her scales rotate a little to look like they are softer to the touch. Her body elongates enough to wrap around me as i'm floating in this plane of suggestion... It feels cool and soft, like my weighted blanket, only as if it were a little less bulky when it is bunched up like so. She moves around a little so that her scales give a sort of tickling effect. It causes euphoria in visitors that need it. I then have to remember I have my Air Pods in...

    "Floating..." Yeah, it certainly feels like water...
    "Drifting..."
    "Calm..."
    "Warm..."

    Its rare for me to be in such an intense state of trance that I can visually see what I imagine. Aloe looked just like she came from an old Nintendo game you'd only find in Japan, like one of the Starfy games or something. She was a blue that was somewhere in between aquamarine and dark teal, simplest way i know to describe it. And even though I had my weighted blanket around me to help with the suggestions, it still looked just like how it felt; Aloe holding me around my belly, casually talking me through as i sit in my hectic hotel room... "No no, everything's fine. Look at me, not them...they don't expect you to work right now. Just breathe with me."

    Tried to draw her earlier buuuut. Betta fish are really hard to draw in anime style.

    That sounds really nice.
    I've been deep into relaxation, guided imagery and meditation for many
    years.
    Just reading your post I could feel how that would be relaxing.

    Maybe when I'm in my beach scene relaxation I'll add a Beta.
    They are so pretty.
