Finding "the gap" is a powerful tool to access the healing and transformative gifts of meditation. It can act as an anchor as you wonder through mindfulness photography.
In formal meditation, one common technique involves observing the space between thoughts. This can easily be practiced on the mat in your daily sessions, but it can also be used all day long. It’s a great tool to integrate with the wonder compass method.
First of all; what is this space? It is the space between thoughts. There is a gap. This is the place we want to find and expand through formal meditation but also throughout the day.
The steps are easy. You can start to practice and see the benefits of finding your zero point (space of complete silence,) in the gap between right now.
Deepak Chopra provided steps during his 21-Day Meditation Challenge:
Start there, and once you have a nice rhythm with the mantra you can sink into the breath and over time release the mantra all together.
Nature is a fantastic place to practice finding and expanding the gap.
Wayne Dyer writes:
“We are just as much a part of the miraculously creative panorama of nature as the flowers, the sunsets, the seedlings turning into palm trees, the changing of the seasons and everything else. It’s being outside of the gap and listening only to the ego that keeps us fat the level of being able to manifest.”
