General OF Attention exercise
This is a short (14 min) general Open Focus exercise which will help you to practice staying aware of space.
We narrow focus of our attention and exclude space from our awarness as there is nothing to look for in space. Dr Fehmi discovery was that staying aware of space generates the whole brain synchrony in alpha frequency.
This is an audio exercise. As all Open Focus exercises it will take you through a series of small attention tasks which will make you very calm and quiet. It sounds gentle and soft like guided meditation but is backed up by EEG neuro-feedback research.
PLEASE, DO NOT DRIVE OR OPERATE MACHINERY WHILE LISTENING TO THIS EXERCISE
I experienced this exercise as very rapidly deeply relaxing. I gain a sense of expansion, and my breathing becomes fuller and freer. I find it curious that I don’t even have to be aware of my breathing (as I do in Mindfulness) for my breathing to take its natural fullness. On opening my eyes I became more acutely aware of my senses: my vision very sharp and my hearing acute. I noticed I became less aware of discomforts in my body and it left me wondering if I could use it equally as effectively as the pain dissolving exercise. Many thanks, I will continue to enjoy using this, especially as it is relatively quick if you don’t have a lot of time available.

This general short general Open Focus exercise is a gem. It teaches you how to get into the Open Focus state very quickly and simply.
I have tried to do meditation for over 40 years, with minimal success. I always used to end up thinking and trying not to think, and this was stressful instead of being relaxing. Open Focus has taught me how to just allow the thinking to exist within my Open Focus, and I cease to be distracted by it any more and am able to reach really deeply relaxed and clear inner states.

This exercise is a perfect quick and easy way to shift your attention. I really enjoy the sound of Tomasz’s voice during his step by step instructions. Once you begin to use it you will very soon be able to remember and turn to it and quickly any time. This exercise has often been part of my morning routine for many years and I urge you to add it to yours.
