Go through your regular drill or practice time and immediately afterwards douse. Notice if there are areas where the feeling is different. A colder or sharper feeling and move those areas more on your next practice. It can be an area like your shoulder blades or a feeling as your balance or alignment. There will be a change in the feeling and you can learn from it. Remember to take the whole thing into account. If you haven’t eaten in two days your stomach will react differently and as a result so will the rest of you. High blood pressure, heart beats and temperature are all in the grasp of your awareness at all times. Take account of it and this spreading of your attention will allow for more freedom from pride and doubt.
