Stress can break our basic, inner rhythms. The brain depends on rhythms, as do all our organ systems. The meridians move in rhythm with each other, like a series of tidal pools. Our electrical patterns are nothing but synchronized rhythms. When these get out of ‘synch’, everything seems a little muddled. Choices are not as clear we become a bit dim-witted compared to our normal brilliance. This little technique helps you find answers under abnormal, stressful conditions; it’s especially helpful when nothing makes sense. Take your fingers for a stroll and find your path forward.
Posture: Sit anywhere, any place. Sit with a straight spine.
Mudra & Movement: Hold the left hand up as though to clap. With the Jupiter (index) and Saturn (middle) fingers of the right hand, slowly and with strong pressure, walk up the center of the left palm to the very tips of the ring and middle fingers. The left fingers should give in—bend a little under the pressure, and it should hurt. Walk up and down the palm.
Eyes: The eyes are one-tenth open.
Time: 3-11 minutes.
This meditation neutralizes the central part of the brain and makes you sharp-witted. It is the answer to abnormal conditions we don’t understand.
