Healing begins when you allow yourself to feel. You can inspire your senses by wandering out of your usual patterns.
Becoming aware of how your body feels in each moment … Literally, going out of your mind !
SHORT MEDITATION TO AWAKEN YOUR SENSES
Begin by sitting quietly …
Focus your attention on what you have just been doing.
Become aware of the minds ability to 'lock' you in thought, as if hypnotised by a movie … Where were you just then?
Now return to your body, become present
Breathing deeply … Inspire
How does your body feel?
Are there sensations in your head? Your shoulders? Your belly?
Any aches, pains? Tiredness? Emptiness in the heart perhaps ? …
Can you notice a tingling in your hands & feet?
If you are really locked into your head, or possessed by strong emotions.
Textures can also inspire you to feel … to welcome you back into the salvation of your body … and out of your mind
Visualise, running your hands … along the textures … of a cool stone wall
Your finger tips … feeling the dry, rough, bark of a tree
Imagine … sliding your hands through soft fur …. or along a crystal clear, sheet of glass, covered in thick cream … How do those textures feel in your hands?
