Stay with this relaxed feeling and try to remember it. Then try to remember what your right hand felt like when it was in action, first giving the massage and then the friction. Reinforce this feeling by giving your left hand another friction with your right hand. Rest again and concentrate on the pendulum breathing and the relaxed feeling in the hands.
