Every practice is conscious or unconscious muscle rehearsal. Pure awareness raises consciousness to includes balanced hips - sitting stably- releasing creative power - through the braced spine - for the heart-intended sound - mapped from the mind through the fingertips.
On 170430, I learned about bracing the spine while reading "Becoming A Supple Leopard".
By including awareness of 20% core spine bracing, immediately the map to finger 2 was improved. The hints of this mapping began in 0ctober 2015 after alternate nostril breath practice, when i began "seeing" my thumbs and 2nd fingers more clearly with the mind's eye. Slowly but steadily, this mind/body mapping to the fingers has since been under custruction. With the braced spine awareness included in rehearsal, freedom from the heart through shoulders and arms to the fingertips is still being observed and changing the mind/body daily.
