Massage the Fingers

Massage the fingers

Rub your hands until they are warm, then use one hand’s fingers to wrap around the other fingers. One by one, squeeze, hold and release each finger on the left hand three to six times; then, continue to the right hand’s fingers. This will help to control the corresponding emotions of each finger.

For example, if at any time you are frightened or fearful, you can wrap your fingers around the little finger, starting with the left side and moving to the right side. Practicing the Six Healing Sounds in conjunction with the finger wrapping may also help. The ring finger controls anger; when you are going to get angry, try to wrap it a few times to see if you still get angry. The middle finger controls impatience, index finger controls sadness, and the thumb controls worry.
