Day 7 of 365 Days of Mindfulness

The Power of Presence
Are you a person who stops, looks, and listens for Signs and Synchronicities in your life? Do you feel like looking for signs is silliness and irresponsible? Or do you find that life is always communicating with you?
I personally have found that when we are quiet and open enough, we can begin to put all the little puzzle pieces into place in our lives. Suddenly, all those pieces – when given honor and awareness – create a bigger picture. I have had my share of being heckled for being a believer in life. I’ve been called naive, gullible, and a dreamer. And like John Lennon once said:”You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”
If you are someone that has been heckled and teased throughout your life, you may have allowed some of that doubtful energy, projected from others who’ve lost their faith, to taint your own mind. When that happens, we can start to become hardened, cynical, doubtful, and judgmental. That is a choice. And choosing to have faith, to stay open, to keep your dialogue with spirit and the entire universe, is another choice.
I choose faith, trust, openness, and listening. I truly listen to it all. I must then discern from what I am observing of course, and then make my next choice. Life is such a mystery at times, and yet I find it such a magical place when I remember to stay open, present, and listening.
The trick is that Source, God, the Universe is Always speaking. But are we listening? Are we really awake and aware and utilizing our power and connection? I observe so many humans that constantly attempt to force things, to make it happen, to try to control life. But why? Why do we seek so hard to try to control life and all those around us? My conclusion: Fear!
Plain and simple, it is fear every time. What I’ve observed is that when we are in a state of fear, or let’s say when we’ve temporarily forgotten how ONE We all truly are, we make less-than-Awesome-or-Loving choices. And we’ve all done that. Every one of us is evenly connected in this. We’ve all had our moments where fear has gotten the best of us, where we’ve started Freaking Out, forgotten our power, our purpose, and ultimately, our Connection.
The good news is, we’re all in this together! We are all in a constant state of evolution, so it’s never too late to awaken. It’s never too late to start listening, to start tuning into our higher guidance. Now the question is: Are You ready to listen? Are you ready to allow this entire Awesomeness of a Universe to guide You, to support You, and to assist You? Because if You are, things are about to get a whole lot easier, and – most likely – a heck of a lot more fun!
Just for today, I encourage You to shift your awareness a bit. Open your viewfinder a bit wider and BE the observer. Just look out and observe Your world, Your chosen environment, Your peeps, Your story, Your drama, Your creation. Just observe it all. No judgement necessary; just watch. As you observe Your world, set an intention to remain Present and Open throughout your day. Give your ego/mind a day off. Let go of needing to know all the answers, needing to know what you’re going to be when you grow up. Just let go and observe for a little while.
Now start a dialogue with the Universe. You may refer to this “other” as God, Source, Goddess, The Unicorn Queen…It truly does Not matter what You choose to call this sense of “other.” What is powerful is remembering that You and the “other” are One. What’s powerful is remembering that You and this entire Universe are One and connected. So start a dialogue, right here, right now. Just simply ask a question. Shhhh, listen and observe how all of the energies of Your Universe will begin to respond. Don’t take my word for it – You must experience this to really know if it’s true.
Ask your question, and pay attention. Expect an answer, and Be grateful for this dialogue. Show honor and reverence as signs, clues and synchronicities show up…Get Excited and Shout out some WHOOO HOOO’S!!!
You may find it fun and helpful to jot your observations down in a journal to keep tabs on all incoming messages from the Infinite Universe. Have fun with this new way of being, and enjoy the journey as you allow the Abundant and Awesome Universe to guide you every step of the way!
