Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present in the moment. I have learned the importance of mindfulness while eating, listening to others, and completing daily activities, however there are many more opportunities for mindfulness. I love to start and end each day in gratitude for all the blessings in my life as it helps me stay alert to the limitless possibilities available in each and every activity. Turning mundane tasks like cleaning dishes or folding laundry can be transformed into meditative practices that help ground us in the present moment.

Do you find yourself on automatic pilot regularly? This happens when our bodies are engaged in a task and our minds are somewhere else. It is the opposite of mindfulness and the epitome of distraction. When I live my life on automatic pilot, I miss out on the joy and connection that is only available in the present moment.

Thankfully, practicing mindfulness is easier than you might think. All that is required is complete attention on the very thing which you are doing NOW.  That means, no more multi-tasking! The truth is, human beings were never designed to complete two tasks as once and whenever we go against God’s Divine Design, we miss out. Harnessing the power of mindfulness becomes easier with practice and soon appreciation follows for all the gifts that follow; least of which is simplicity, focus, clarity, and peace.

So, try practicing Mindfulness today and allow the present moment to cleanse you in ways you can’t even imagine.

Today, I am thankful and grateful for the many blessings available to me each and every moment. I am open to increased clarity, focus, joy, and peace as I practice mindfulness in everything that I do.

Possibilities Abound!

Become transported into a world of pure imagination where anything is possible. What do you think of and see? Drink in the colors, sounds, smells, and tastes of your dreams making them real  Think this only applies to art? Think again.

Each day, we are presented with limitless possibilities resulting from the choices we make. Today, I showcased my very own “Possibilities Book” as a final project for a class I was teaching. Each student presented their books brimming with hope and excitement for the dreams they represent therein while stating the risks each were willing to take to make these possibilities real. Then we affirmed the manifestation of these intentions for each other.

Too often we walk through life allowing fear to scare us away from leading the lives we really want and are called to. When was the last time you told yourself  “I’ll do ___, when ___” or “I can’t because __”? These excuses are fear based and only serve to squelch our ideas / dreams of what’s possible. The truth is, that the sky’s the limit and only we set our parameters in life. Thankfully, I have learned to identify my dreams and push past the fear in order to find joy and satisfaction in living my fullest life possible and YOU CAN TOO!

Take fear head on and dare to step into your possibilities. When we feel fear, we know we’re pushing past our comfort zone and soon afterwards, the thing(s) we’re afraid of set us free. Momentum builds confidence and strength in knowing that we can all do far more than we think is possible.
