What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present.
When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them. Instead of letting life pass you by. Mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience the realization that we are not just our thoughts. This is a huge shift in our mind set.
It never ceases to amaze me the reactions clients have when we work on practicing being mindful.
The reactions range from, “Oh, my god, where have I been for the past 30years? I’ve been missing my life and over thinking everything too much instead of just being in the moment and enjoying it.
Mindfulness is like having a new relationship with your self! It is pure magic! That is if we are willing to do the work on ourselves, the work of mindfulness and self-compassion.
People discover that if there is any “magic,” it is not in the meditation instructions per se; the real magic is in them, and in every one of us. When we intentionally cultivate moment-to-moment non-judgmental awareness, that magic comes out. It is an invitation to listen to and get to know and trust, our own heart, our own mind. It is how you conduct your life; what you eat, what you think about, how angry you are, whether you spend time in silence, inhabiting the domain of being rather than running around multitasking, everything.
If I have to put it all into one word, it’s awareness. Awareness is a capacity you already have within you,
Mindfulness and heartfulness, for awareness itself and help them develop a lifelong commitment to living life fully and wisely.
