(waves crashing) Hi, glad you're here. Let's continue our journey inward towards the mystery of us. So, step one, be comfortable. By now I'm hoping that your body is trusting that it knows how to sit, that's it's becoming easier for you to feel settled, supported, awake, and open. And because we're gonna be honing in towards the skull, let's put a little bit more attention to this alignment.
So again, eyes might be closed or just softly resting on a spot in front of you. Allow the upper soft palette to widen, balloon even. Feel how this naturally allows the base of the skull to widen, which just, without any effort, causes the chin to just drop slightly. The chin sometimes is associated with the sense of a separate self and so, the dropping of the chin just naturally allows for a quality of humility. Yeah.
And then just with your mind, just locate the upper bridge of the nose, what sits right between your eyebrows. And from the upper bridge of your nose draw your awareness back inside towards the very center bottom of your brain. We're moving towards the spot where the pituitary gland sits. And while you might not have in the past identified where your pituitary gland is in your skull, when you get to where it is there is this quality of yes. There's an immediate kind of plunk.
(softly laughing) You'll just kinda know. And when you get to that center point, right at the base of the brain, the request now is that you just so gently relax around this area, like just like we've been playing with. Just let this region start to feel more expansive, like it can gently radiate and just tenderly, like, radiate back towards the back of the occiput bone. Let the occiput bone, which is located in the back of your skull, feel like it opens. Let the two bones that sit on either side of your skull above your ears open, as if they can breathe more easily.
And then feel that gentle radiation towards the frontal bone, like where your forehead is, and let this bone feel like-- (popping) Like just like this gentle lift. Yeah. And just see if you can allow this feeling of that upper palette doming, this radiating center, what sometimes come is this quality of like being like you literally feel like you're being lifted up. There's a quality almost as if you're growing taller. Yes.
And the play is allowing this to occur while simultaneously relaxing any tension that's crept in in your neck, in your shoulders, along your spine. Again, you've decided maybe your eyes are open, focused, or maybe it's feels better to let them close, and we'll be here for, it's about two and half more minutes. Remember how to soften the jaw. Let the eyes feel kinder. Let the ears feel more open.
Tuning towards your ability to give your mind more room. Be aware if you've been tempted to hold your skull still and allow yourself to be in the fluidity of the movement. For the last few moments maybe allow yourself to gently sigh to help ground you again, so you can feel that simultaneous grounded expansion. Beautiful, if your eyes are closed, let them slowly open. Thank you.
