I couldn’t sleep last night. And so I held my fingers, one at a time. After what felt like at least 15 min of holding my index finger, I felt warmth wash over me. I lost awareness of my body and was floating in space. I love when this happens.
It took some convincing to let go of my index finger and move on to the middle finger. I did not want to come out of the floaty pleasant state. But curiosity prevailed, so I wrapped my hand around the middle finger. Another 10-15 minutes later, I was floating again. This time, however, I retained the sense of my body boundaries. I felt no pains, aches, itchiness, or whatever restless discomforts plague me when I can not fall asleep.
I managed to move to the ring finger before I eventually fell asleep. By then, I had lost a sense of time, my body felt great, and I must have been somewhat drowsy as I had lost the awareness of experimenting with the fingers.
The night was fretful, and I woke up twice more before the morning. Yet, when the morning came, I was refreshed and energized. Was it one particular finger? Or the sequence? Now, I am curious to go further and experiment with the order of the fingers. Aren’t the attitude buster sequences in Self-Help Book 1 on pages 21 – 37 something similar?
Any thoughts? Or interesting insights to share? I am curious to hear from other extended finger-holders. 🙂
