Hello again…this is a nice habit we are creating. We stop and have a chat and stop to breathe for a moment or two.
I often meditate on the mental image of a rose, but even better, is to put a real rose in a glass of water and study it.
Look at it closely, till you can see the texture of the petals. Breathe in deeply; does the fragrance smell sweet? Spicy? Look at the gradations of color in the rose. How open is it?
Look at the stem and notice the leaves. Are the edges spiky or smooth? How big are the thorns? Does it have teeny-tiny little hairs that are thin thorns, or smooth skin and big, bold, honest thorns that are large enough to see before you impale yourself upon them?
Breathe in the fragrance of your rose for a minute or two. Even if you do it in your imagination, tell me, now how do you feel?
The same thing can happen with pure thought in the body. The Alexander Technique is a good way to learn this skill and apply it to benefit your well-being.
What fascinates me is where this skill may be applied in life. How can we use it to improve our relationships? How may it enhance the quality of our lives?
See you again tomorrow….let’s see where this may go…..
