3 practical steps to Mindfulness
I’m watching a linear trend in the world of blogging. Seems most disseminated content is now translated in steps 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 etc. Readers, like me, go straight to the bolded caption and I dare say, rarely read the descriptive paragraph that follows. Okay, I’ll cave. Here are 3 practical steps to Mindfulness and visiting the Gap.
MEDITATE – breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out – focus on breathing in and breathing out. It’s all about the breath, the breath, the breath.
MEDITATE some more – build up to 5, 10, 20 minutes every day focusing on the breath, the breath, the breath. Ideally, you are seated quietly and comfortably with eyes closed. Open with a cleansing breath and notice your lung capacity. Then just breathe normally, noticing, feeling, appreciating the breath.
And, did I mention MEDITATE – Meditation is the name of the game. While we focus on our breath we can hear the Universal sound AUM. AUM is everywhere – the swirl of the breeze, the chirp of the crickets, the buzz of the machine, the tone of the chakras. Warning: Voicing an auditory AUM vibration, sealing the close of your practice, may lead to bliss.
