for the last 30 days I have been focusing my meditation on creativity inside of the headspace app.
The exercise consists on freeing/calming your mind then focusing back on the breath, back and forth, back and forth.
I can’t give you all of the feelings but this exercise is powerful. One of the visualizations in the early exercises helps to expand the vastness of your mind with a simple imagination technique. Here’s how it works (here is how I visualize this exercise):
You are told to focus and create a light of energy in front of your chest. Then you expand that light throughout the room you’re in, the place you’re in, the city, state, country, globe, milky way, other galaxy, as far as you can imagine.
When I end this visualization, I’m sitting cross legged in a dark, calm, nothingness place on top of an invisible energy pedestal (I don’t know how else to describe it 🤷♂️ I know… it sounds crazy). I can look down and see the entire vastness of space in one single view. One grouping of light with nothing around it, I.e. our entire universe in one cluster.
This exercise has helped me to be more spacial as well as have an excitement for design. When you visualize the grand design, you’re naturally motivated.
