"Close your eyes. Breathe out 3 times and imagine that your head is held in a silver hoop whose shining ends clasp each of your temples.

Repeat for a third time. Then open your eyes, aware that the pain has gone.”

"Close your eyes and breathe out 3 times. Look down at the top of your head from above. Open up your skull as if it were a boiled egg and look inside. You can see the nerve fibres moving in the fluids like aquatic plants. Then all this fluid flows out of your head. Feel how the tension at the base of your neck is released as the fluid flows away down your spine. Now a new fluid is flowing up your spine and filling your skull. You can see the nerve fibres through this new transparent liquid. Feel the new blood flowing up the back of your neck and through the rest of your body. Close the "lid” on your head, breathe out and open your eyes."
