There are several Bank holidays coming up this month which means the Healing Room will be closed until May 6th. So as we have a gap until we see you next I thought I would let you know some of the tricks I use to start meditating.
They are very simple but very effective. Its a bit like Pavlov's dog. The more you practice these tricks the quicker the body reacts and gets you deeper and quicker into your meditation.
Lay the back of one hand onto the palm of the other and touch the tips of your thumbs together.
Relax the face and mouth muscles by putting on a half smile and let your tongue touch the roof of your mouth.
Soften the eyes
Look straight ahead and soften the gaze on whatever is infront of you. Still looking ahead with this soft gaze take in what is to the side of you and then sense what is behind you. Its as though your have eyes in the back of your head!
So have a go. Set up your hands, put on your half smile and then take your focus all the way round to the back of your head. Feel your body relax and drop deep into meditation.
Have fun with this!
