HOW TO USE THE MEDITATION WHEEL
Hold the wheel in your hands and move the arrow to the pictures of your senses. Start with bringing your awareness to each of them, what can you hear, see, smell, taste or feel on your skin in this very moment and keep moving the arrow along in anticlockwise direction. Now move the arrow to the experience of your body. Is there any tightness, tingling or discomfort, any pleasant sensations? After a few minutes checking in with your body move on to what’s going on in your mind. What thoughts are passing through, are you planning, worrying or thinking about past events? Finally bring your awareness (and the arrow ;-)) to your surroundings, where are you right now? Extend this awareness further from room to building, to outdoors, to the village or town, county, country, continent, planet and become aware of your connection to it all, your place on this earth at this very moment. This is a great practice to incorporate regularly into your daily routine and the more you practice it, the less you rely on the wheel but move naturally through the sequences. It’s also a very flexible practice as it is up to you how long you want to stay which each component.
