Being present with an experience emotionally, mentally, physically, sexually, and spiritually means you are grounded in the experience. If you do not accept part of your life experience, you unground your consciousness in that moment of life.
Following are four ways you can become more present increasing your wellbeing and success in every way!
SPIRIT - Intuition: Have you ignored your gut feelings or doubted yourself? The intuitive nudges that you receive are to help you be more present with your life purpose. As subtle as they are, give your attention and follow their guidance. See how it helps you to feel more centered.
MIND - Acceptance: Acceptance allows you to fully be in your body and to truly feel everything. It allows your focus to be present and grounded. Acceptance is being honest and authentic with your total life experience. You aren't going to always agree entirely with everyone you meet. It is okay if your friends don’t share the same views as you.
You can accept someone and disagree with them at the same time. Unconditional acceptance equals unconditional love. When you face and embrace all aspects of yourself, you are able to love and accept yourself. When you are grounded, your intuition is more easily accessed, and you are able to make wiser life choices.
EMOTION - Emotional Authenticity: Were you taught to hold in your emotions? You might push down emotions like anger, fear, sadness, and jealousy, and bottle them up inside, not allowing yourself to feel these emotions that you or those around you may judge as “bad.” This is also true with physical and mental issues you don’t want to deal with. You may suppress these issues and the emotions surrounding them, and block yourself from what you are experiencing in the present moment of life, thereby ungrounding yourself. Learn to accept, embrace and express your emotions. Let them out. Then you will be more grounded everyday of your life!
BODY - Physical Balance: Anything that alters your physical chemistry such as alcohol, chemicals, radiation, drugs, caffeine and sugar can unground you. Even fluorescent lighting and computers can be ungrounding. Being grounded is a choice. You can find the reason you are ungrounded, understand it, and transform it. Start by noticing the things that unground you and make an effort to stay grounded. Get out into nature, exercise and eat a balanced diet. These three action steps are essential to being in a grounded state of well-being.
Each choice you make brings you more into the present or takes you further out of it. Be aware of when you are centered versus un-centered, concentrated versus scattered, attentive versus day dreamy and present versus distant. Use deep breathing to imagine yourself sinking into your heavy feet. Play with this meditation several times a day for a few minutes each time. See how present you can truly be for the beauty of life!
