Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded of the power in being present.
We live in a world filled with busyness and distraction.
We flit from one thing to the next, racing towards the next item on our calendar, trying to get through the growing and never-ending to-do list.
We barely give ourselves time to appreciate all that we do and achieve, as we move swiftly on to the next thing.
However, there is great power in being present.
Being present with ourselves.
Being present with the people we love and care about.
Being present with the task that we’re doing.
When you’re present you’re connected to your deepest self and inner most knowing.
You can make decisions and choices in a way that honour and align with your truth.
When you’re present you connect with something greater than yourself, and become much more aware of your motivations, for example, are you making your choices from a place of power, or a place of fear?
Presence gives you the space to listen to yourself and the time to reflect on your choices. And in a noisy, busy world this space is a breath of fresh air.
Pause, and take a breath. As you become present with yourself.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to focus on being present.
Start by becoming aware of your breathing.
Breathing deeper and slower.
Then notice how your body feels.
Feel your feet connected with the ground, solid, stable, dependable.
Now bring your mind into the present moment. Not wondering what is coming up or dissecting what you’ve already done.
But just be here right now.
Then for the decisions you have to make throughout the day, take a moment to come back to this feeling of presence and make your decisions from this place of power and clarity.
Pause, and take a breath. As you give yourself the gift of presence.
“I slow down and allow myself to be present”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy being present on Your SHEro’s Journey!
Many of the practices I teach in my Re-Enchant community focus around this central theme of presence.
I’ve shared before I love to run fun challenges with giveaways for people that complete 10-days of SHEro Power Poses. If you’re not sure what a power pose is think Wonder Woman, hands on your hips, or arms stretched up and out to the sky. Amy Cuddy gives a brilliant TED Talk on the importance of Power Poses.
I love the Power Poses so much because they very quickly and viscerally help us to become present within our body, you don’t need any special equipment, you have, and are, everything you need. Amy Cuddy even talks about how just imagining this pose brings benefits.
When you’re present, you have much greater awareness.
You can call back your energy and centre yourself quickly, and you notice when you’re thrown off centre and what caused it.
You find a place of peace and power within you.
In the moment of presence you are whole. There are no battles going on within you, you just are.
You can also navigate the daily dramas of life with more grace and ease when you experience more presence for yourself.
These are just a few of the reasons I teach people to connect with the power within their presence, I hope you’ll give it a try too.
