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 mentionMEDITATE – 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.
We all breathe. Revisiting the Gap brings us to Mindfulness and Mindfulness is where the fun is. You cannot get meditation wrong. Just pay attention to your breath. When you notice your mind taking over in thought just bring it back to the breath. Go ahead. Tap into the Gap. Ride the wave of that AUM sound. It’s all there – love – appreciation – assistance – acknowledgement – Inspiration – guidance – awareness – upliftment. The Gap revisited… It’s only natural.
