Soothing & calming the mind can be helpful when we are triggered by stories, rumination, strong emotions, or agitation. The gentle touch of the palms against the forehead can invite the flow of blood into this area of the body. When there is gentle pressure here and the eyes are closed this can be an invitation to rest the head and take a break from the constant doing mode to being still, warm dark, and quiet. When we are agitated the eyes can sometimes flick, so placing warm hands over the eyes can bring some ease to the face. Feel free to use a cushion or pillow on the table for more support so there is no pulling or strain in the lower back.

Perfect
I was so peaceful and comfortable with my arms resting on the table with forehead in palms. With my palms covering my eyes, the warmth and darkness seemed to penetrate to within. It felt really good! Any longer and I may have fallen asleep. Thank you for this wonderful meditation. ❤️🌷

Very calming & tranquillity inducing. I believe using this meditation/technique while caught in a moment of letting stress or anxiety take hold of my mind will be very useful!

I hate myself
But I Need to take care of myself. Learn how to care about myself. So Just this small meditation got me out of my head and resentments and I feel OK to chair a meeting and carry out my personal responsibilities but I’m still swimming in chaos and anxiety but all I Can do is the next right thing

I am SO tense!! I am worried about too many things.
I need to show down and let my body and my mind rest. Mindfulness is something I need.
