MEDIT8ION REGIMEN: XERCISE 2
..................................INTERMEDIATE MEDITATION REGIMEN TO BULK UR BRAINZ (for warriorz)
//XERCISE 2: THEE PSYCHICK SET
> This exercise requires a higher proficiency than the first, so it would be appropriate to
get well-used to the first exercise, at least until you can do it without a guide.
> Every 'set' contains 3 to 5 reps, for each of the senses as preferred. The primary being Touch,
Sight, and Hearing, and optionally, Taste and Smell.
> Making sure you are in an optimal setup for meditating, warm up with a few reps, and relax.
> Whenever ready, on your next rep, avert your attention to the physical sensations on your body.
>> (TOUCH) Bring your attention to the weight of clothes on your skin, the force
of gravity exerted on your body, the soles of your feet on the ground. Do this for 2 Reps.
> Keeping your focus, now avert your attention to what you hear in the room.
>> (HEARING) Listen to any sounds in the room, fans buzzing, birds chirping, your
own respiration and heartbeat (if it is quiet enough); whatever it may be. Do this for 2 Reps as well.
> Again, making sure you have not lost attention of your breath, reavert your attention to what you see
(eyes opened or closed).
>> (SIGHT) Without straining your eyes, pay mind to what you can see.
If your eyes are closed, try to discern the subtle colors behind your eyelids.
Do this for 2 Reps.
> Bring your attention back to your breath, from here you may choose to repeat the rep, or
incorporate the senses of Taste and Smell if applicable.
>> (OPTIONAL: TASTE AND SMELL) Briefly pay mind to any smells in the room or tastes in
your mouth that you have tuned out. Whether those Smells/Tastes be pleasant or unpleasant.
Do a Rep for each.
>> (REPEAT AS DESIRED)
> For your first time, or while learning, completing even a single Set can be enough of an ordeal.
So do not fret if your attention wavers throughout, just take a breath and start again.
> Remember, this is a muscle you are developing.
