This is maybe the most important of them all. At least the one that you will use most often. Because as W/we all know the slave´s live is waiting and he sure will do so in Waiting Position.
The position of the head and the hands is of paramount importance here. Face down on the floor, palms up. By opening his palms to his Mistress the slaves shows his openness, his readiness to receive whatever she has to offer. Never let him get away with showing you the backside of his hands when in Waiting Position. I really cannot understand why so many people get that simple thing wrong.
The gesture translates the message of the position into body language. The Mistress´s hand says, “get down and then stay where you are”. The moving hand subdues the slaves body but at the same time is also protective, it says “submit to My power and show that you are Mine.”
Remember, I talked about the slave communicating with his Mistress in the beginning? This is a perfect example how he does. his open palms showing upwards match Her palms facing down. If it goes right, there will be a flow of energy between the dominant palm and the mirroring submissive palm. The body of the slave communicates his submission to the Mistress even though he does not speak, of course not. he will never speak when in Waiting position, this is an absolute no-go. Speaking would destroy his tension. he will not even be allowed to look up when in waiting position.
