Sensations of the hands, feet, and head can offer reliable entry points to mindfulness of the body. Many people have expressed to me that they can feel these regions quite easily, even if other regions of the body persist as "blind spots" over time--these blind spots being interesting places of practice in themselves but challenging to approach without helpful tools. For example, "shake up" Part by Part body scans by occasionally sweeping awareness quickly through the body (Periphery to Center is just one direction), and notice how or if this sweeping energizes the mind and offers new perspective/places to investigate the Part by Part process.

Important to remember and feel our bodies not just our internal thoughts and feelings.

Find it
Be mindful of all things around me and to love no matter what I face. Never give up till you find it.

Breathing in through your body
Not only can I breathe in through my nose, but I can draw in breath through the openings of my hands and bottoms of my feet; my third eye, my belly and release all static energy. Feeling fully rejuvenated!

Present Peace
There is a peace we can access at any time and it takes only a few minutes to be effective. The key is to be fully present, and to surrender to the greater connection we have to all things.
