Meditation practice allows us to explore our mind and the sensations of our bodies. The goal is to become a better listener and to see things simply as they are. What is the sensation in our hand? What is the mind telling us about what we feel in our hand?
In this meditation, explore your hands and the sensations that come when you hold coins in your hand.
if you practice this over the next few days, you will have uncovered the magic of being with specific, simple sensations and open up a world of discovery that exists in the smallest of places. Our minds and our bodies are afterall, build on lots and lots of tiny places.
Well, you wake up, brush your teeth and probably do some exercise, maybe have a yoga and maybe even have started meditation. A practice is something that requires near daily dedication. Say that out loud, daily dedication is a practice.
It takes practice – daily or near daily – to develop a practice. But the pay off is huge. If you learn how to belly breathe, you will tap into your vagus nerve – that runs from behind your neck down your throat and behind your heart and into your belly to bring about physical calming. Google vagus nerve.

Do you notice how I use the hand and finger simply as guides?
