Keep it Simple Tip: Palming
Palming is a wonderful technique that I have used
many times to relieve eyestrain during periods of intense reading
Lie down on a bed, sofa, or mat. Place a small pillow on your chest.
Bend your arms at the elbow and rest your arms on the pillow. Cup
your hands so that your palms are facing down, and place your palms
over your eyes so that the bottoms of your hands are laying gently
on your cheekbones and your fingers are laying gently on your forehead.
Close your eyes and just lie there, doing slow, deep, abdominal
breathing. Imagine a gentle wave of water or healing energy passing
over your eyes. Settle into a deeply relaxed state for 15 minutes
to half an hour. When you finish, you’ll find that your vision is
clearer and sharper than it had been, that colors are more intense,
and you have a feeling of general relaxation around your eyes.
