If I can assist in raising consciousness, (even slightly) through my Video Blogs, then they will have served their purpose.

The last Blog was about appreciating and being grateful, i.e. The Attitude of Gratitude – I hope you were able to put this into practice on a daily basis. I also hope that you experienced the positive benefits that come with this practice.

Still being appreciative and grateful, I move along to the next topic: Being in the Present Moment. What is the present moment? It is NOW – this moment in time – not the past which is no longer present and not the future which hasn’t yet manifested. The present moment is always with us, but how many of us actually live in the present moment with thoughts and feelings that are in the now? How many of us embrace the magic from the present moment?

Many of us live busy lives – moving from one point to the next with thoughts either in the past or the future, but rarely in the present moment. It’s a habit that we unconsciously partake in as we go about our day and then allowing ourselves to be captured by the final thought of the day with concerns of what happened today and what might happen tomorrow. When this happens, we are missing out on what the present moment has to give… and so the wheel turns taking us aimlessly into the past or future.

In the present moment, there is no judgement of the now because whilst being in the present moment your senses are activated with the experience of being present. When we are consciously present there is no room for allowing ourselves to be taken with thoughts of yesterday or thoughts of tomorrow.

When one is consciously present, the magic starts to unfold…. This is where you can fully see, hear, smell, taste, etc. this moment in time, all done consciously and fully aware – and with that comes your gifts unfolding before you… one at a time….it’s magic!

How can you make that first move to being in the moment NOW? STOP whatever you are doing…. take a breath, i.e. inhale and exhale….then observe all around you, taking in the smells, the sounds, the sights, etc. then proceed with what you were doing. That’s the quickest way to snap yourself out of being everywhere except the present.

The more you allow yourself to be fully and consciously in the present, in the now – the more you will want to be here – there isn’t really any other place to be, but consciously present, living in the NOW and catching the magic.
