Moving from the resource of a neutral or pleasant sensory experience to an awareness of a slightly stressful situation you’re in right now, as a way to be with that awareness in a manageable way, knowing that you can return to your grounding sensory experience whenever you need it. Please note, you’re advised to have some mindfulness experience before you take this practice, as the practice is more effective when you have the ability to intentionally direct your awareness. If you find your awareness gets stuck on a difficult situation, or you find that your sensory experience has blended with your difficult situation (i.e. you’re experiencing them both at the same time and there is no change in your experience), you’ll be better served if you cease this practice and do something that feels more supportive for you. Getting stuck or feeling blended won’t resolve themselves through staying with this meditation.
