Present Moment Awareness

Often people say to me; ‘It’s all fine and dandy to love everyone, but what about when others have negative energy, I don’t want to take that on’. Over the years I have from time to time found that the energy of another has affected me in a negative way. However, as the years go by and I continue to expand and learn, I see that the more I am present this kind of thing doesn’t happen.

For instance, when I feel that someone’s energy has affected me, it’s in the moment. There is always a next moment, where I choose differently. What I often say in my classes is that love is stronger than fear or negativity. When we strengthen our love for ourselves, when we deepen our connection to source energy, there isn’t much that can affect us in a negative way. Yes, we will have our days when we are tired or feeling off. But again, when we practice present moment awareness, we can always move through it and into the next the moment.

How do we move through it?

Firstly, breathe….deeply and consciously, ‘see’ your breath come in from the earth through your feet all they way up to your crown on the inhalation. Then on the exhalation, feel/sense divine energy enter your crown and flow all the way through your body and down your legs into the earth. It’s amazing that something so simple can make such a big difference. After this exercise, you will have cleared anything you may have taken on, or drawn towards you. Ultimately, if we are in awareness all the time all energy will simply flow through us, this is our natural state.

If you find that other people affect you, ask yourself; what am I thinking? Is it truly their energy or mine?  Even though there are many of us that are sensitive and open, it doesn’t mean we have to protect ourselves from others. That is separation. We are moving into a new world where we embrace our oneness. Remember there are over 7 billion humans on this planet, but only one BEING. We are all connected. As a matter of fact all of life is interconnected. Everything you think and do affects life around you.

The next time you are dreading going into a meeting with someone who[m?] you have known in the past to be negative, change your mind, choose differently. In other words in that situation, instead of going into the repetitive wheel of your mind, decide that this time you will see the essence of the person, you will see ‘god’ in the other. With this in mind, you will be emanating life force and nothing is stronger than that!

Spirituality and Life

It is very interesting to me to hear people say that they will get back to their spiritual life again one day. They see their real life and spiritual life separately.

From my experience spirituality is really just a word. For me it means that we prioritize the larger picture of life. It is not separate at all. We are not spiritual just when we meditate, or chant or read spiritual books or have spiritual conversations. IT IS LIFE.

Everything is spiritual if you see it that way. Selling cell phones, collecting garbage, delivering mail, selling insurance, waiting on tables etc. All of this is spiritual. Its all how you look at it. This is it…..your life as it is, is the spirituality.

Every breath you take is a new opportunity to see the world from a different perspective, to create new thought and open up to the expansiveness of life.

If we go against, or resist what is, we are limiting the possibility of expansion in consciousness. A judgement for instance is resistance to what is, it is also, limited perception.

No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing, it is exactly where you are supposed to be and its exactly what your supposed to be doing. Ahhhhhh….what freedom that brings. Just BE, relax into beingingness, and see the world from from the perspective of an ant and the perspective of a star all at the same time.
