Psychological, helps to put the energy of feeling more deeply into the mind to understand a feeling, where it is coming from, and what it represents. People often separate the mind from feelings and suppress feelings. This exercise assists the mind (not the brain) to more deeply understand feelings being felt. It helps people that are very intellectual. It opens a channel into the mind energetically to help decipher feelings. Ask someone what are you feeling? If they go into a long intellectual discussion as their answer, this exercise will be good for them.
