Initial Energy Awareness

Once you have practiced letting the energy flow over and through you, you can practice feeling the energy in your hands. These exercises are to help you to become more aware of the energy that you can draw up and channel into your hands. Once you become more acquainted with these, you can play with them as much as you like, anywhere you like and generally have fun with it.

Exercises to feel the energy in our hands

Ball of Energy

This is one of my favorites that I play with it all the time:

  1. Sit comfortably practicing the self-healing mediation for a while, imagining there is white light like a fountain falling onto your head, gently down your body and along your arms to your hands.
  2. Bring your hands together palm towards palm, keeping your arms and hands very relaxed.
  3. Imagine you are rolling a small ball of energy about the size of a small orange between them. Imagine the energy flow through you and to your hands, to the ball between your palms.
  4. Roll the energy in your palms such that your fingers are around it but not gripping the ball but relaxed and loosely surrounding it, arms relaxed
  5. Keep rolling, slowly and then speeding up a little and then slowly again.
  6. Feeling for the energy and imagine it growing as you channel more energy to it between your palms.
  7. As you slowly grow that ball, in your imagination and in your hands, slowly move your palms slightly apart as you keep rolling, as the energy ball size has grown ever so slightly. The ball will feel less dense, as you have stretched it out, compared to before, so keep channeling energy into that ball until it feels like before.
  8. Keep rolling, slowly and then speeding up a little and then slowly again, as you channel more energy into the ball and keep growing the ball ever so slightly, moving your palms ever so slightly apart as you keep rolling and channeling energy to it.
  9. As you do this you may feel that you have moved your palms ever so slightly too far apart and cannot feel the ball of energy. If so, pull your palms slightly inwards again so that you are again feel like you are encompassing the ball of energy.
  10. Now as you are rolling your palms, move them slightly towards each other and see if you can feel a slight resistance from the ball of energy as you slightly squeeze the energy.
  11. If you cannot feel the difference at stage 6, just keep channeling energy into the small orange size ball until you do, or after you have channeled energy into the ball for a while, you can start with rolling your palms closer and squeezing the energy first, to see if you feel a slight resistance, before you start to grow your ball very, very slowly.
  12. You can keep rolling the energy big and small in your hands, growing the ball as much as you like and squishing the ball of energy by rolling it smaller, and feeling its density and resistance as you do this.

 

Elastic Band

This is very similar to the Ball of Energy and may work better for others:

  1. Sit comfortably practicing the self-healing mediation for a while and imagine there is white light like a fountain falling on to your head, down your body and along your arms to your hands. Bring your hands together palm towards palm, keeping your arms and hands very relaxed.
  2. Imagine you are rolling a small ball of energy about the size of an orange between them. Imagine as well the energy flow through you and to your hands, to the ball between your palms.
  3. Roll the energy such that your fingers are around it but not gripping the ball but relaxed and loosely surrounding it, arms relaxed.
  4. Now pull your hands gently apart, keeping your hands and arms very relaxed and feel the energy pull your hands slightly back towards each other.
  5. Like an elastic band as you stretch the energy it tries to pull itself back.
  6. Keep rolling the energy, channeling more energy in between your palms and pull again further each time and see what happens.
  7. Your hands should gently get pulled back towards each other again.
