Discover All Your Senses and Feel Rejuvenated in Just a Few Seconds. Have you ever wondered where our feelings of anxiety and depressions are coming from? Most of the time, these feelings are not actually about ourselves, but rather about the things that are NOT happening to us at the present moment. There are times when we find ourselves nostalgically drifting towards the past, longing for things to go back to the way they used to be.
There are also moments when we find ourselves fussing and worrying over what would happen in the future. We are everywhere, but here. We say that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, or somewhere else, but not where we actually are. We are waiting for the unexpected to happen. We have traveled back in time and into the future, but have never managed to remain in the present moment. We have become restless souls, always searching, always looking, and never standing still.
How then, do we break away from this fatal cycle of restlessness? The answer is quite simple, my friend. Meditate. Be aware that you are here, now, and find peace in the process. This does not mean that you have to sit still or look very calm physically. Personally, we have met many people who seemed to be really focused and calm from the outside, but they would admit that deep inside they were lost and torn. At the same time, we have met people who seemed active, always moving around and sometimes expressing their anger straight away, but deep inside they had their peace of mind. As they say – don’t judge the book by the cover.
Be present. This is the core message of the practice of meditation. It seems like an easy task, but can be quite challenging to achieve. Let me challenge you now. Put this phone down, close your eyes and allow yourself to be the king (or queen) of your castle. Breathe in and out the way you feel is right for you. Keep telling your subconscious mind, “I am in control. I control how I feel. My emotions work for me.” It’s up to you how much time you decide to devote to this process. We always find it really energizing and uplifting, and just like yoga stretches that allow us to move and feel our body, this meditation reminds us that we create our own feelings. We like to repeat this process a few times a day (just like yoga poses). Short sessions, but repeated throughout the day, do wonders for our well-being and they help us develop new, empowering habits. Besides, we never get bored when going through this process and we never stress out thinking we don’t have time.
You don’t even have two minutes for the most important meeting today? The meeting with yourself? Then, how come you can be prepared for other meetings with your bosses, colleagues, employees, clients, family and friends..?
