(gently crashing waves) Hi there, nice to see you again. We'll continue our play with the sense organs, turning them inward, in this session "The Ears." So step one, get comfortable. Just snuggle in, in a way that feels best for you, where you can feel rooted, easy, spacious, and relaxed. Once you've found that, you're gonna bring your hands to your ears. So use your index middle knuckle and your thumb, bring your hands up to your ear lobes, and just begin to tug a little bit on your ears.

I like to alternate a little bit, pulling on one side and then the other. Now, it should feel good, so don't pull so hard that it doesn't. Then just slowly making your way up the ear, just kind of dragging your ears wide. When I get to that point, that little Vulcan Spock point, I like to switch the grip so that the thumb is on the inside, and then I really like to pull up on them. You can go in a little bit more and just kind of fold them down a little bit, uh-uh.

Then make your way all the way back down. What you're pulling on is what's known as the oracle of the ear. Isn't that a great name, this outer ear is known as the oracle. Then just pull, one last time, and let your hands go, and then let your hands come down to rest as is comfortable for you. Let that upper soft palate of the skull open.

Eyes, again, are either closed or just gently resting in front of you. Now tune your attention towards your left ear, particularly the oracle, the outer ear, and just to begin to let that outer ear start to feel bigger, just start to let the ear expand by softening the tension around it. Let the jaw ease. Then gently travel down through the ear canal towards that thin little membrane, the eardrum. Let the eardrum feel more transparent.

Yes. Moving in towards the inner ear, let the inner ear feel more spacious, open. As you do this, you might notice this relationship between the inner ear and the throat, soften the jaw a little bit more. You might feel a movement down through the throat. Yeah, beautiful. Now relax your direct, holding of your attention on the left ear.

We come back to rest at that upper soft palate. Now only when you're ready, again, as we've explored, sometimes it's not so easy to move to the other side after you've been so close to one side, so only as you're ready you'll move your awareness over to the right ear. It's kind of starting to hone in on the right ear, starting with the oracle, the outer ear, the part of the ear you can see, just allowing us to feel bigger. Soften the tension around the temple, the sides of the ear, the back of the ear, yes. Then tenderly move your awareness down through the ear canal to that membrane, that eardrum, and just, can you allow this area to hold your curiosity, letting this membrane feel thinner, more transparent.

Moving into the inner ear, the chamber through which the vibrations of the sound get translated into something our mind can understand, and allow the inner ear to feel more spacious, open, more like, almost more cathedral-like, yeah. Beautiful, let your awareness rest back at the upper soft palate, letting that soft palate dome, as you continue to just feel this expansiveness of your ears. For these last two minutes, continue to tune your attention towards allowing the ears to widen, open, softening the tension. And if it's available and interesting, tenderly and gently begin to allow your physical heart to come into your field of hearing. So your jaw is soft, your ears are open, upper palate is domed, and you are tenderly listening to your heart.

If your eyes are closed, gently let them open. Thank you.
