Intermediate Skills Lesson 2: Creating a Feeling of Motion
Step 1: Get good at being aware of each part of your body as learned in basic skills. When you can feel the subtle way each part of your body is receiving impulses, such as the effect of gravity, the fine hairs on your arms reacting to the air, or the feel of your clothing touching each part of your body, you have completed step 1.
Step 2: Sit or lay in meditation. Focus your attention high on your forehead. After you can feel the skin on your forehead at about the hair line, shift your attention to your left ear. After you can feel your left ear, shift your attention to the place where your spine touches your skull. Next shift your attention to the point where your neck and right shoulder touch. Finally shift your attention to the top portion of your breast bone. Stay at this step until it is very easy for you to focus on and actually feel these five points.
Step 3: At this stage repeat the process, but this time you should feel as if your attention is like a cursor you can drag fluidly using a mouse and your body is the screen. Do not literally picture a computer or cursor, but that is how I am going to describe the idea. You should drag your attention across the surface of your skin as it moves from each point of focus. You should do this slowly and be sure you can move your attention through the entire circuit fluidly.
Step 4: Repeat the cycle in a loop, but do not connect the last point with the first. Fluidly move from forehead, to left ear, to base of skull, to the place the shoulder meets neck, to upper breast bone. Then jump your attention back to your forehead and repeat. While sitting gently sway your body in the direction of the point of focus. You should time the sense of touch in an area to you leaning veery slightly in that direction. You should add a couple more points at this point. Pick a spot that is lower than the last and in the correct direction of the circuit. Left armpit, middle of back right side where the ribs end, belly button will work. Extend the circuit to include these points. When you reach the belly button, jump your attention back up to your forehead. You should be swaying in time with the rotation of your focus. Viewed from above your head and shoulders should be going around in a continuous circle.
Step 5: This is the final step in the intermediate skill level of this. After you have got good at timing the swaying of your upper body with the progressively moving point of attention, you should stop actually moving your body and using the visualization skill learned in the last lesson, attempt to recreate the feeling of swaying in a circular pattern. Now you simply drag the point of attention to each point as rapidly as you feel comfortable with and visualize the sensation of swaying.

This may not seem too exciting at first and it may not be easy to complete step 5, but this skill will be essential to some advanced skills. You should end up being able to honestly feel as if you are still swaying like you did in step 4 without moving at all. Just to hint at how this skill will be used, I will tell you that one advanced skill will involve creating a storm and another with transformation.
