How are you living your moments? Are you really present in them? Or is your mind cluttered by worries, concerns, and lists of things-to-do? We are imprisoned by our negative feelings and notions about ourselves, others, and life. On top of that, we’re living the kind of hectic life that robs us of our ability to enjoy our moments.
Do you feel that that is true for you?
I, myself, find myself sometimes trapped in the hecticness and stressors of life. Over the years, I cultivated a very strong practice of bringing myself back to the present moment as soon as I find myself straying away from it.
Do you want to liberate yourself from the prison of limiting negativity and hecticness???
There is a way to do that and it is worth every effort possible.
One of the strongest ways to get there is through the practice of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is the art of attention and awareness. It lives in the present moment, which is the only moment we have. It is a form of non-judgmental, relaxed awareness. When we are mindful, we are consciously paying attention on purpose to the contents of each moment. We are noticing our feelings and sensations. We are taking in the details of our external environment, as well as the emotional and mental currents that are flowing within us. Mindfulness also means cultivating a relaxed acceptance of what is. We learn to allow what happens to just “be” and observe it with compassion. We allow a sense of appreciation and enjoyment to blossom for us since we are witnessing rather than resisting, controlling, or fixing.
Sounds easy? Not at all. Mindfulness takes tremendous practice since we all are, to various degrees, anxious and reactive. We tend to live in the past, or in the future, going back and forth from one to the other in an effort, mostly unconscious, to manipulate life and outsmart it. Just being in the present moment feels very open and vulnerable. Most of us are too restless to relax into the moment. We end up being absent from our own life, a guest rather than the homeowner.
Isn’t it interesting that we forget that we are here in this life temporarily? We might not be here tomorrow. Our moments are precious, but we’re not living them fully. We are doing things automatically, unconsciously, taking life for granted. Mindfulness reduces stress and enhances our ability to enjoy and appreciate life. It opens our hearts and minds to an expanded experience of life and relaxes our tendency to contract and withdraw away from what is.
To be able to fully practice mindfulness we also need to be able to do the work of clearing ourselves of internalized negative and limiting beliefs and habits. For that reason I have created the Gates of Power ® program to help people do this important clearing work, as well as the work of cultivating our true being and potential.
