The here and now
The here and now is the only place that you are in, the only physical place you ever will be. It’s a basic fact and you can’t change it.
The problem is that our mind is either worrying about what has happened in the past or worried about the future. Eckhart Tolle wrote a whole book on the power of now.
I will help you to be in the here and now.
Thinking about the past
Much of our time we spend thinking about the past. What we have done what we would have liked to have done.
It’s in the past.
You can’t change it.
There’s nothing you can do about it.
The important point is that you have learned very valuable lessons and these lessons are there to help you in the present.
They help you prepare for the future
Even if something that has happened in the past has been disastrous or even horrendous, you have learned extremely valuable lessons that will help you in whatever you are doing in the present and prepare you for your future.
Much of your time you are probably thinking about the future.
Thinking about what is going to happen. Worrying, being concerned about how you can cope with it.
When you are relaxed and comfortable in the present, the emotions of the past have gone and the future will look after itself.
Your positive outlook shows
Also if you are being bullied or intimidated, your positive body language will radiate out, people will leave you alone or just back off.
You will be amazed by how your positive body language radiates out, with remarkable effects.
It’s impossible to have your mind totally in the present. It’s only natural for your mind will wander. It’s important to remember that some peoples’ minds will wander more than others.
In fact, letting your mind wander into the future – maybe daydreaming – is not a bad thing. You’re letting your imagination wander and thinking about your goals.
How to stay in the present
It’s very useful to have a technique to help you stay in the present and remain there for longer periods. It also helps you enjoy the present because that is the place you are in and ever will be in. So enjoy it and appreciate it.
Wherever you are, inside or outside, day or night, it doesn’t matter, either sitting or standing.
First close your eyes slow your breathing down, just listen.
What sounds can you hear?
Spend a little time to listen, maybe you will pick up more sounds. Different sounds.
Where are they coming from? What meaning do they have? Spend a little time doing just that.
Open your eyes and focus on everything around you. Start with objects in the distance, then shift your focus to things closer to you.
Spend time observing. You will probably notice things that you have not noticed before. You may think to yourself, “why haven’t I done more of this?”
You will be fascinated by the results.
The big plus is that you will be more conscious of the present and you will be getting valuable information for the future.
This will take the anxiety out of the future and you can then make more positive plans for the future.
This is it
Remember the present is the only place you are in and ever will be in.
Enjoy it. Relax in it. The future will just fit into place.
Your newfound presence will radiate positive body language, giving you the confidence to be the person you want to be and have every right to be.
