Mindlessness to Mindfulness

It’s time to slow down and get fully engaged with this present moment. We really have to ask ourselves; are we sleepwalking through life? Most people are moving through life as unconscious competents. We begin our day and we unconsciously set everything on autopilot, we engage the cruise control and stumble mindlessly through the day.

If we engage with any of our thoughts at all, it’s either about re-living some past memory and yesterday’s experience or spending time in a future that doesn’t exist. Looking backwards we often invite depression to come sit with us as we reminisce about days gone by. Ceaselessly engaged with what’s coming, it’s often from a position of worry, doubt, fear and anxiety.

What we have as life’s greatest gift is this eternal moment of now. This is where great things fashion themselves. We must move through are days consciously aware and awake, fully present to every moment.

Dr. Roger Walsh in his book “Essential Spirituality” says, “Mindfulness has five benefits. It enhances our awareness of relationships, the world around us, and the world within us. It also frees us from automaticity and heals the mind.”

The benefits are remarkable! In this episode I go a little deeper into all of this and I share a gentle exercise to help bring you into the present moment.

Conscious Awareness

Conscious awareness is taking mindfulness to another level. Merriam – Webster defines mindfulness as the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis. When I speak of conscious awareness I’m talking about that same heightened awareness AND the relationship of those thoughts and emotions to the results we’re experiencing on a moment-to-moment basis.

When we level up and become aware of the creative process that we’re participating in, either consciously or unconsciously. we can rapidly change our results by exercising the dominion we all have over our thoughts. This is how we make quantum leaps in our life experience. Listen in today as I take this a little deeper with more clarity.
