Palming/imagery - Joe100 - 10-09-2016

I am trying to use palming with imagery, but it is difficult. I have a hard time seeing images and even a harder time seeing the one I want to see. Is this a normal thing or something I need to work out. Or do I just palm and let myself wee what the brain wants How did Bates use this practice?

Joe, don't try. Don't try to see anything. Just let yourself relax into the peace and dark, not having to do anything for the moment. You are giving both your brain and your eyes a break from trying to accomplish.

Reading Dr Bate's books  I thought Ia person was supposed to think of something plesant when they palmed. Is this not important?

Also can a person use a blindfold instead of the palms?

Joe, see this if you haven't already.

Hands are best, but you don't even need your hands. Now we meditate, which wasn't a mainstream word when Bates was around.
