Sub 31 Mindfulness: Be In The Present

 

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is bringing your mind into formation.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Being present and in the moment—as in not being distracted by thoughts or worries about the future—helps you show up better for yourself and others. ‬It also helps to ground yourself into where your journey needs for you to be: the present, the now.

‪May you show up in more and more mindfulness, wholeness, and in higher awareness for yourself and others.‬

 

01

When we’re not

mindful‬

‪When we’re not mindful, precious moments slip away without us ever noticing them.‬

02

On a psychological

and Physical level

On a psychological level, living in the present moment has been proven to reduce anxiety and stress. And since stress and anxiety are significant culprits in sickness, pain, and disease, living in the present moment, in turn, leads to better physical health and more joy.

ASK YOURSELF: What can I do to best support my well being today, or in this moment? Then, be on the lookout for the answers, tests, and opportunities to do so. They may come to you in quiet thought, through an intuitive nudge or flash, a word, conversation, or some other method may capture your attention. Be open to how the answers may arrive.

When it’s Hard

When you find it challenging to be fully present, take time to tune out the distractions. Slow down your life and your thoughts. Disconnect from all you can, as much as you can.

04

The Past and Future:

Stay in you power

It can be a great, healthy, and empowering thing to reflect on the past and contemplate and plan the future. Just be mindful not to become a prisoner to either of them. Don’t only live there. Allow yourself the sacred gift of being free and present in the now moments of your life. This is also a great way to find balance and experience high vibrations more regularly.

WHAT TO DO: When you find yourself in a space, or loop, of uneasiness, anger, frustration, regret, or shame, over the past, come back home to yourself.

When you find yourself in a space, or loop, of worry, stress, anxiety, and fear of the future, come back home to yourself.

the only moment you are alive

is now.

05

Catch Yourself

Our mind and vibration becoming too full, distressed, and cluttered, can be so subtle or quick that we don't always see it happening. We notice it often times after the fact. Through coming back to being present, the now, we have control over what we give focus, energy, and power to: we choose what we allow to continue. We catch ourselves from looping into old patterns and spiraling out into spaces that don’t serve us.

WHAT TO BE AWARE OF: Old patterns, behaviors, and outdated timelines feeling like the right choice, when they are not. Grow in all things. Sharpen your mindfulness skills by practicing in real time moments.

Mindfulness From A

Spiritual View

In spiritual faiths and traditions, challenges and even suffering, are not just that; they are viewed as and transmuted into gateways to higher potential, wisdom, fortification, and greater enlightenment.

Know that this too shall pass. So grow through and transform whatever you go through. Even small moments are big opportunities for big change. We have Divine help and power with us and in us to overcome any challenging moments, days, nights, or seasons. Take refuge in in the Higher Power of your faith.

Cover yourself in your spirituality. Keep being mindful and vibrate higher, from wherever you find yourself, daily. Inner-peace and sweet solace will enter through here. You'll begin to have real joy, greater inner peace, and higher-vibrational inspiration. And, you'll have transmuted and transformed any opportunities into greater purpose and potential. From here, you’re on a roll. Keep up the wonderful work! Remain consistent, so that it becomes your new way of life, and a positive and powerful form of re-programming.

Gratitude is a sacred way to bring yourself home and into spiritual-mindful practice.

REPEAT:

I have arrived. I am home.

I have arrived. I am home.

I have arrived. I am home.

10 Remedies For

Becoming More

Mindful

Stillness is slowing down your mind, breath, and life, to allow a higher power to move within you and through you.

Don’t ignore what you feel, transform it. This allows you not to remain stuck in denial, distraction, or pain.

Clematis Flower Essence by Bach is used to help ground and anchor us into our bodies, into our now, and effectively into our goals. In urgent cases Recuse Remedy by Bach, which includes Clematis, helps you to quickly stress less, stay calm and in control.”

Aromatherapy is a powerful way to connect the earth to the deeper chambers of the mind, where most unease, disorientation, and lack of focus and grounding take place. It connects us back to our wholeness. I find rosemary, lavender, rose, cinnamon, sandalwood, and citrus oils, quite the dream team for grounding and smoothing transition.

Spend Time Near Trees With Deep Roots Because you are also nature, spend time near trees that are rooted deep. This offers a warm sense and vibration of stability and comfort. Being out in nature is like being in an organic, high vibrational, and safe wi-fi zone. There are invisible frequencies and vibrations communicating around you and flowing through you. Feel the therapeutic vibrations!

Keep Your Head Up Keep in mind that all transitions are temporary. Do all you can to fortify and live in awareness. Tend to your transition well. Journey in grace.

Breathwork, Massage, Reflexology, Binaural Beats, and Meditation Practices help the mind and body release tension and realign to higher vibrations. These practices are also powerful amplifiers to other practices and remedies. They enhance their effect by raising your vibration to better receive their ‘medicine’.
