Sit or lie down and relax into a comfortable position. Feel your body slowing down, and any tension you might have being released.
When you're ready, take your hand and move it to a spot that is just above your body, preferably your heart/chest area. Notice if you feel any sensation at all. Perhaps, you'll feel some light tingling, prickling or heat. If you don't feel anything, move your hand out about 2 feet. Then, slowly pull it back toward your chest. Pay attention to where you want to stop. What do you notice?
If you don't notice anything this is still okay, just keep pulling your hand back, until it rests on your chest, or you feel a sensation of some kind. At first, you might not notice anything. Be careful not to dismiss anything. Over time you, with practice, you may begin to recognize sensations or see imagery as you do this exercise.
When you do get to the point of recognizing something, you'll want to record the feelings and sensations that come up. It might be that you do feel or see something, but you don't recognize it's importance for you.
Perhaps, you'll remember something from the past. Perhaps an image of someone you miss will appear in your mind. Just be open to allowing the sensations or imagery to come. However, don't feel like you have to see or feel any particular thing. We are simply hoping to catch a glimpse of something that may be connected, at a deep level, to our heart.
You might begin the exercise by asking:
- What have I truly been yearning for?
- What would I feel inspired by doing?
- How can I better connect with my passion?
