  • Imagine you are sitting on the bank of a stream, the water is flowing in front of you
  • Notice if there is any sound from the running water
  • Notice if there are any trees or plants on the banks of the stream
  • When you look at the stream you notice leaves floating down the stream away from you, they can be any size, shape or colour
  • As a thought comes into your mind, acknowledge it, and then place it on a leaf in the stream
  • Now watch the leaf float away down the stream
  • Do this with each thought that comes into your mind, for as long as you like
  • As you acknowledge each of your thoughts you do not need to hang on to them. There is no need to become attached to the thought
  • Just acknowledge it and then place it on the leaf
  • By watching it float away, it loses its hold on you and its intensity
