How are you in this moment? Perhaps you are experiencing a wonderful moment and if that's true for you, I hope you are taking the opportunity to be fully present to it. Perhaps, though, you are feeling under the weather, sad, or maybe experiencing discomfort physically or emotionally. Are you holding yourself in love and surrendering to the experience, reaping what has been brought to you to be known? I think too often we want to feel good because that's how we think we're suppose to show up in life - feeling positive and upbeat, shying away from and fighting those low moments. We see feeling down as negative.
Personally I like to look at low moments as a time when we are most ripe for personal growth. We don't have to like it, but for me it's important to acknowledge those moments and see what they're telling me. Sometimes I'm totally surprised at the wisdom that comes from an honest conversation with my discomfort.
If you're interested, try this: Sit quietly and ask your discomfort "what do you want me to know?" Be open to hearing the truth. Without arguing, question what shows up, be curious. If you have the intention of finding the truth to your sadness or discomfort, wisdom will find its way to you.
I would also offer that being in the moment with happiness is equally as valuable. What brought you to that place? Acknowledging these moments allows for gratitude and that's a gift that keeps on giving!
Life is full of ups and downs, we never really know what's going to show up at our doorstep. Yet all the while, if we pay attention, we can use each moment to shift and evolve, learning new things about ourselves and letting go of old beliefs and patterns.
Being in the moment is a precious gift because awareness of each moment is living life to its fullest.
In love and light,
