This article is dedicated to Mindfulness Exercises but first what is mindfulness?
Mindfulness means to be totally present. How many of us can honestly say at any given moment that we are totally present? There are mindfulness exercises that you can do to train yourself to become more present. But first, let’s discuss being present.
What does it mean to be completely present? Being completely present is being in the moment. It doesn’t mean thinking about what you are going to make for dinner or thinking about all the things you need to accomplish this week. It means being in the moment and experiencing it. It means listening to someone who you are having a conversation without letting your mind wonder. Being present means being totally engaged at the moment without distraction.
Mindfulness Exercises will train you to be in the moment, not worrying about the future or dwelling on the past. As the saying goes, “"Yesterday is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, Today is a Gift, That’s why it's called the Present." If you were to live today as if it were our last day imagine all the great things you would do. Mindfulness Exercises can help you to live every day completely engaged.
As a nurse, it is hard to live in the present. Nurses are so busy during their day that they are always thinking about the next ten things they have to do while they are taking care of the current task. We call it “multitasking” and we pride ourselves on being able to successfully do it. What we don’t realize is that we are doing a disservice to our patients because we aren’t truly giving our whole self to that patient. Mindfulness exercises can help all professions not just nurses, give more of themselves to their clients, to their job, to their families and most of all to themselves.
This one minute exercise can be used at any time during the day when you feel yourself focusing on anything other than the present moment. If it is practiced everyday over one month, you will be much more likely to be living in the moment then you are right now. Try it! It has an amazing affect when practiced regularly.
Your Mind Power Controls Everything in Reality:
Lack of control is an illusion. If you are the
creator, all things are under your control. Some people say that control is an
illusion but the opposite is the real truth. How can you not be in control when
all things are under your control? Realize the aspect of yourself that is
divine, your Godhood. God is in control of all things, and God is the Self of
all, which is your Higher Self. You are the Higher Self. You create all of your
reality. There is no aspect of your reality which you do not create. Therefore
you control all... Read more here
You are not a victim. All power is within and is
absolutely under your control. To say that things happen through another cause
other than yourself is to say that you are a victim. Nothing happens outside of
you. Everything is happening within you. You are Consciousness, and
Consciousness encompasses All That Is. Whenever you feel not being in control,
you are experiencing an illusion. You created the illusion of not being in
control, of not being God. You are the director of the script and can control
at will...see how.
Mind Power creates and controls reality. Think of
Desire-Force as the warm, ardent, fiery, forceful energy, underlying the
manifestations of Mind-Power; and of the Will-Power as the cold, keen, strong,
directing, controlling projector of the energy. By fixing these mental images
in your mind, you will be better able to manifest the two phases as occasion
arises. To create a thing you must want it with a burning desire that allows no
denial, backed up by a will that knows no such word as "can't" or
"no." More information here!
To live as a powerful creator, you have to banish the
illusion once and for all that you are not in control. Because you will always
arrive back at the core truth that you are the creator of your reality and that
you create all of it. Not being in control makes you feel like a victim. When
you focus on what you can do to create what you want, you take back the power.
Your intent brings you the knowledge, the awareness and the energy to create
what you want. Everything that happens can be traced back to intent.
I hope these mindfulness exercises have helped you to start living in the present. Once you start truly living there you will have a much more rewarding and peaceful life.
As always be well,
