Click on the screen where your awareness would be if you were the avatar. Notice that you can follow your awareness, or deliberately move it to a new location. For a guided Energy Healing, press the Energy Balancing button on the Options panel. To rest from focused awareness, change the Awareness type to Scan. Feel free to experiment with all the controls.
The goal of this program is to be aware of how your awareness changes, because "the more you feel, the more you heal."

Introduction to the Mind Body Tool
Feel inside yourself and use the visuals of the Mind Body Tool to help you maintain your body awareness. Use the various controls to try different kinds of awareness at different locations around and in your body.
Speed Control changes the speed of the scan line and the rate of pulsation of the focused awareness, and how fast it moves.
Focus changes the kind of awareness between vertical scan, horizontal scan, and focused awareness.
Tap to move the focused awareness to a new location.
Scan Direction changes scanning between vertical and horzontal directions.
Bigger expands the awareness indicator.
Smaller contracts the awareness indicator.
View changes the view of your avatar by 90 degrees.
Axes shows or hides the front-back, up-down, and left-right axes.
Gender changes avatar between male and female.
Timer Set a duration and click the button to start a countdown timer.
Partner makes another person or another aspect of yourself appear. Click on the right side of the screen to move its awareness center.
Grid shows or hides the grid the awareness center moves on.
Intention turns the intention arrows on or off.
Maps changes between the Sensation locations map, the Emotion locations map, the Neurotransmitter sensations map, and no map.
Scene changes the background scene or makes it solid gray, white, or black.
Training shows a menu of training patterns. The first four get you to focus on a particular center. They are called 2 Minute Workouts, and move the avatar randomly for two minutes around the Head, Heart, Belly, or Ground center.
Turn Voice On/Off turns the vocalizations on and off.
Turn Coloring On/Off allows the world to be colored by the awareness center location or not. Usually, moving awareness up shows a warmer color, moving it down shows a cooler color. From the side, the each quadrant has a different color. In all cases, bringing the awareness to the biological center of gravity clears the emotional coloring.
Turn Waves On/Off shows on the screen passing waves of internal or external experience.
Match matches the partner's focus type and location.
Phase changes the starting place of the scan line or the opacity of the focus point in its cycle.
