Finding focus with Trataka

More so than usual, I've been feeling scattered. There's a lot going on right now: I'm coming to the end of my yoga training course (queue assessments, written observations to hand in, practice training sessions). I'm looking for a flat. I have a day job. The list goes on...

I've done candle gazing before, but recently came across this article and it prompted me to give it another go. After a week of practice as a complement to meditation, nothing has worked as well for me to keep my mind in one place. By allowing my consciousness to join the dance of the flame, I found a way to connect with the universe's energy - thereby grounding myself and regaining perspective. Worth a go.
