Experiment: Tune in

Sit in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
Place your attention on your hands.
Slowly bring your index finger and your thumb together on each hand. Hold this mudra for a few minutes. Notice how you feel emotionally and physically.
Gently release the position from your right hand and maintain it with the left. Hold it for a minute then switch hand.
Hold the mudra with your right hand only for a minute then gently move your left hand back into the posture.
Slowly change the position so that it is now your middle finger that touches the thumb on both hands. Be as present as possible. Notice any differences or slight shifts in your mental, emotional, or physical state. Hold the mudra for a few moments.
Release the right hand maintaining the posture with the left and hold it.
After a minute switch hands. Keep the movement super slow and fluid. Focus your attention on the simple physical movements and subtle sensations they produce.
End with both hands holding the mudra.

Repeat the entire cycle twice.

If you do not register any subtle differences from change to change, don’t worry about it and try again later when you’re higher.
