Podcast script: Observation meditation – The hands

Music credit: Aube – REMY BOURGEOIS

Hello and welcome to part 5 of 14 for this observation meditation series.

The hands, we use them every day.

To pick things up, typing at work, to sending messages on our phones.

Yet how often are you aware that you are using your hands. We use them without a second thought.

So enjoy a few moments to observe your hands today to quieten the mind.

Find yourself a comfortable position, sitting or laying the choice is yours.

***Music starts***

Adjust your shoulders, adjust your hips.

Allow your body to become heavy.

Become aware of your breath.

The in breath.

The out breath.

Enjoy the stillness of your body.

Bring your attention to your hands.

The surface your hands rest on.

Palms up? or palms down?

Fingers out stretched or slightly bent.

Observe your hands.

Where your hands connect to the wrists.

Your palms.

Your thumbs.

Your fingers.

Become aware of how your hands feel.

Can you allow your hands to relax completely?

Observe your hands, observe your breath.

Enjoy a few moments to observe.

Take one more deep breath in, deep breath out.

Allow your breath to return to its natural rhythm.

Gently wiggle your fingers and your toes.

Slowly open your eyes.

Thank you for listening.

***Music ends***
