This is a pretty good idea. I might try that, although I suspect that the main thing to feel this free is the fact of not wearing googles.
I have not tried much with my eyes closed, but I believe I have done it quite a few times and the results were not that relaxing.
Anyway, thank you very much for your advice. I will share my sensations when I have them.
