What does it mean to turn your attention inward?
- It’s the process of looking at and becoming aware of your thoughts and feelings. It can be listening to your body and observing your mind. Also watching your breathing or observing the colors behind your closed eyes.
- Essentially, it’s when your senses begin to withdraw from outside stimulation. This is something that begins to happen naturally the moment you close your eyes and stay awake.
- Often this is foreign to people in the beginning, but the more you meditate the more these inner senses become familiar.
