Mindfulness Tip: Practicing Presence

I have been “practicing” Presence for a very long time now. However, up until recently, I have not been practicing well.

But, at the beginning of this new year, something changed. I can’t tell you precisely what occurred to instill in me this desire to take my practice to another level. It could simply be my soul’s call to go deeper within myself. And, the only way to get there is by being present.

Present – being, existing or occurring at this time or now.

I have noticed that I leave my body when not present. I seem to float somewhere around the area of my head. It’s probably due to all the thinking that my mind likes to engage in. However, when I find myself in this space, I have been bringing my awareness to my feet. This immediately brings me into my body and back into the present moment. I often have to do this many times per day.

The point of power is in the present moment.

Louise Hay

I love Louise Hay’s quote, “The point of power is in the present moment.” When we are not present, we give our power away. We don’t even realize that we are doing it. But, once we are aware, we can change our behavior.
