Although I have been having a go at most of the exercises on the videos, I have put most of my time into the Bitter Pill.
I have always found standing meditation very difficult. I have always had tight/stiff muscles & within minutes of standing, I can be in great pain, especially the neck & upper back area.
Today for the first time, the pain seemed to dissolve & I felt fairly comfortable & at ease! I have tried to be aware of the 13 points as much as possible, while at the same time letting my body be in the stance. I did notice that although my crown was lightly suspended, that it could be lifted higher, but this seemed to bring back the muscle pain. Should I keep pushing up the crown, or just let it float?
During the moving part of the Bitter Pill I find it hard to differentiate the different levels of relaxation. The only thing I seem to notice is some connected feeling like taught cables from my shoulder blade area & upper arms & a bit of my back.
I will continue to practice & observe myself.
Thanks to all who have given me feedback in my last post. I have taken note & used it in my recent practice.
