I learned a technique yesterday of opening the palette by sighing "Ahhhh..." - which is the beginning sound of OM (AUM). The idea behind this is that if we open our palette we are opening the Sushumna channel and thereby connecting our chakras. I really did feel like something opened up from pelvic floor to crown of the head.
Petra the cute.
My dog joined me and made me aware of her - shaking her head, smacking her mouth, nudging my hand for pets. So I used this distraction to practice bringing all of my awareness to the present moment without judgement.
