To enable you to become more familiar with the range of your sensory process, and to strengthen your sense of location.
You must reach the boundaries of your physical senses before you can break through beyond them, Or to awaken the much higher senses of perception.
Exercise to Enhance your Senses
This exercise should be carried out in a dimly lit room (Not completely dark0 at a time when there is no possibility of you being disturbed. The room should be warm and well-ventilated9most psychic exercises and experiments involved you remaining motionless in a darkened room for fairly long periods, therefore it is important to ensure that the room is comfortably warm, but not roasting. Remember, physical immobility causes the body?s temperature to drop.)
Sit upright in hard-backed chair with feet together on he floor and your hands folded loosely in front of you. Close your eyes and simply sit there for a few minute, allowing your thoughts to wander as they will.
Open your eyes again and become aware of the details of your surroundings. Carefully study everything in your range of vision but do not shift your position. Study the floor, the walls, and the various objects in the room. Make a mental note of as many details as you can. Next, expand your attention to become aware of your general location. ?See? the rest of the building in your minds eye; the street outside, the whole are,? send you?re your mind in an aerial reconnaissance of the city or the countryside around you. Get a strong sense of your ?Exact? location.
Then mentally return to the room and once again probe the room with your senses. Don?t just see it: smell, taste I, hear and fell it, everything around you. Try to extend your senses. ?Fell? the walls of the chair. ?Taste? the air in your room. Strain your ears for the slightest creak of furniture, the tiniest whisper from the bookcase.
Become conscious of the force of gravity holding you in your chair. Feel the pressure of the air on your skin. Listen for the beat of you heart, ?Do not make any attempt to analyze these sensations; simply note them as what they are!
After ten or fifteen minutes, close your eyes again and go through the mental reconnaissance process once more, this time keeping your eyes closed. ?see? the room, The furniture and so on, in your mind. Visualize your surroundings as clearly and in as much detail s you can. (most people find it very difficult to visualize anything clearly, so do not worry if you have trouble holding the image in your mind at first. Visualization ability improves with constant practice.)
After five or ten minutes of this, take a few deep breath and open your eyes and end the exercise.
