Living on Purpose Through Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a practice of being purposefully aware of ourselves and being fully present in the moment. Through practicing mindfulness we become fully attentive to where we are, what we are doing, and how we are feeling in the moment. Mindfulness is a way of developing deliberate consciousness.

Practicing mindfulness improves mental focus and memory, reduces stress, calms emotions, and fosters healthier interpersonal relationship.

Getting Back To Happy ASAP

I want to feel good all the time. And when I don’t feel happy – in addition to the unhappy feeling – I’m unhappy about being unhappy! I want to as quickly as possible figure out the problem, change things up, find a solution and get back to happy. This is my habitual way of processing life events. But as I bring a more mindful approach to everyday life it becomes apparent that it’s the resistance to unhappy feelings that’s the real problem. Why so much fear around feeling anything other than happy contentment?

Mindfulness Monday ~ Patience

Practicing patience in mindfulness calls for us to slow down. It requires that we watch, wait, and we observe the circumstances that are unfolding. The conditions of the unfolding then help to determine the right time to take action. This slowing down and practice of patience can be challenge, especially in fast-moving demands of everyday life.

Mindfulness Monday ~ Trust

Trust begins in our body When we pay attention to and trust what our bodies are telling us, we open ourselves to a well-spring of subtle information. Begin practicing trust by listening to your body. Listen to its tension. Listen to its aches, twitches, and impulses. Recognize and acknowledge what these hold for you in the moments throughout the day. What does your body communicate during difficult conversations, decisions, or interactions?

Mindfulness Monday ~ Non-attachment

This week’s Mindfulness Monday focuses on Non-attachment. Attachment has its basis in desire – whatever the focus of that desire is. We acquire tangible property and ‘stuff’, or we experience attachment to a particular cherished ideal, relationship, or established ways of thinking. Most often we are not conscious of our attachment or the reason for it. Holding-on condemns us to living a constricted and imprisoned life. Think of a dog who is kept chained in a yard. He is not free to roam and explore as is his true nature. No chasing squirrels or birds. He can’t follow the scent of a favored human, or other pet. Instead, he is tightly tethered and forced into routine and conformity. He may be safe and out of trouble, but he is not exploring a world that is wide, open, and dynamic.

Mindfulness Monday ~ Acceptance

Acceptance is translated in Latin as “to find rest in” and brings about calm and a peaceful mind. When practiced, the energy of reality offers a gift of a new way to experience everyday life. Acceptance presents us with a great open window. We can be stretched to grow, shift our frequency (find more positive responses) and explore other aspects of our coping mechanisms.
