Meditate Like a Wave (Recycle Toxic Emotions for First Responders and Dispatchers)

Release Negative Energy (For First Responders)
In our jobs in fire, police, EMS, dispatch, and healthcare, we receive a lot of intense negative energy. For our mental and physical health, we need to recycle it, like the waves of the ocean. For this practice of meditation, you need no effort. You simply follow the guidance.
At any moment, we can visualize the horizon and use it to feel more relaxed. This meditation will guide you to feel calmer immediately, using horizontal lines we can find anywhere.
