Simple Exercise to become more CONSCIOUS – using Hands

Here is a simple way to use your hands to become more conscious.


Step One

Take a deep breath and focus your attention as totally as possible in the present moment.

Step Two

Take whichever hand you want, either the right or left and bring it palm up to your face (not too close) but enough to be able to see all the details.

Step Three

Start observing as much of the details as possible (look at all patterns, the lines, the textures, etc). Keep looking for about a minute without thinking about it but just totally observing all that is right in front of you.

Admire all that is and realize the complexity that is this piece of existence.

Step Four

Ask this question…

Who/What is looking at this hand?

Try to really get a sense of yourself or the entity that is seeing this hand. Continue just observing and not trying to answer this logically.  Try to connect to this higher consciousness of being both aware of the hand and the you that’s perceiving this hand.


That’s it, pretty simple, right?

The whole point of this exercise is to notice that most of the time during your day and life, you are just trapped in your mind and thinking about all sorts of things instead of being the total awareness of all that is being experienced in the current moment.

Awareness is a massive skill that one possesses, but unfortunately for most humans, it is never utilized.
