Day 44 I was intending to meditate Last thing at night as a means to ward off fantasies. However, I came up with a better idea. I went for a body scan instead. I’ve demonstrated this body scans To groups of folks a few times, so I’m quite familiar with it. Basically, starting the left foot, I put my attention and it and then slowly work my way up the left leg, (angle, lower, leg, knee, upper leg) putting my attention on each part. I then move to the left hand and do the same for the left arm. After that I move my attention over to the right side of my body, and slowly move my attention down the right arm, into the right leg, before finishing in the right foot. Finally I put attention on all arms and legs simultaneously and keep it there for a while. This particular body scan doesn’t include the head or torso, as those areas are where nearly all strong sensation, emotion, and thought are located. I thought this body scan would be useful, as it is a means of putting my attention away from my head, where the fantasies start, and also away from my groin, where I might react to the fantasy. So it is helping to cut the fantasy off at the source and also eliminate the reaction. I am going to practice this every night so that I am ready for any fantasies if they reoccur. It is also a great way to fall asleep! I am not concerned about fantasies appearing during the daytime, as I’m busy doing stuff and so I just don’t have time to keep my attention on them. However, the body scan can be done at any time, either standing, laying down, or sitting, so if need be I can do it then too.
