In imagination, sit down to your favorite dish and eat it. Pay attention to the taste and texture of each mouthful. Feel the knife and the fork in your fingers and the way they manage the food.
How do you feel when you perform these exercises? One important reminder: it is of the essence that you do not make yourself tense. Whenever you find yourself frowning or tense while doing these exercises, STOP. Whenever you find your mind wandering, STOP.
Learning to visualize
And now for the kinesthetic sense, the sense through which we are aware of the body and its movements:
Imagine that you are
1 - Walking and then running along a beach: feel every movement of your muscles.
2 - Driving a car: sense with precision each movement you make in turning the steering wheel, pressing the pedals, and so on.
3 - Swimming, playing tennis or basketball, or practicing any other sport you enjoy.
4 - Chopping wood with an ax.
Whenever we explore and voluntarily make use of a new part of ourselves, we experience intrinsic joy. We are gradually learning to "activate" our inner senses and through this method we are also "AWAKENING" our etheric and astral doubles. This is indeed a special delight and it gives us the opportunity to use new skills which are also subtle and delicate and important for our more advanced spiritual work.
Learning to visualize:
Imagine that you are smelling
Your favorite perfume
Clean mountain air in a pine forest
Bread coming out of the oven
Always remember that these exercises are to activate your "inner psychic senses"
You can try one each week, or change them as you please but discipline yourself to practice a few minutes every day.
