Change your Mindset –Change your Life
Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at ways we can create the life we desire. We’ve also focused on our energy and recognising how we can lift and boost our energy. Today we are going to think about time, about time passing, and how we can stay in the present, how we can stay in the moment.
Most of us at some point in our lives get stuck in the past. No matter how much we want to change and grow, we are a bit like addicts. We want to change our ways, but we hang onto the past, the ways we have always done things. All of our experiences, both good and bad, have emotional charges. When the moment and experience has passed, we think about the event, which then in turn becomes a memory. What we are really doing is memorising the emotion and re-creating the past on a sub-conscious level.
In order to change your life, and create the life you desire, you need to start to live in the present moment. Now there is a lot of information around about being in the moment, about mindfulness and meditation, what it really means is to look at the space between who we really are and the image we present to the world. We need to stop, look and listen to ourselves.
How can you achieve that? Well, in order to find a starting point, you could practise meditation on a daily basis. Find the meditation style that works for you and get started. To meditate means to become familiar with. You need to observe yourself, in order to develop yourself. Watch yourself, change from your old mode of operation and develop a new mode.
