Preparations before doing palming
The first step is to let sunlight warm and stimulate the retinal nerves. And then cover both eyes with the cupped hands. Fingers should cross over the forehead and the heel of the palms rest on the cheekbones. No tightness is allowed in the eyelids, brows and fingers. Since all light have been excluded by the palms, the eyes should be closed lightly. One point is important that the palms should not touch the eyeballs.
The posture during this eye exercise
Maintain this posture and stay comfortable and relaxed. The elbows should rest comfortably on a wedge-shaped pillow on the lap. Keep the head and the back of the neck straight. One of the most important requirements of palming is that the body should be comfortable and relaxed. If the body is rigid and ill at ease, visual benefits can not be achieved.
Complete blackness is the final objective
As time goes by, the eyes will be free from color, grayness or images. Blackness is the only sensation that can be experienced. Seeing blackness requires the person to get rid of tension completely. In fact, the degree of blackness represents the degree of relaxation that has been achieved. For those who have not relaxed enough, colors such as blue-black and gray-black can be noticed.
