What is Mindfulness and how can it benefit us?
If something in our life is not working, be it unhappiness, pain, or issues of some sort, in order to resolve it we need to first be able to understand the process of how the problems are occurring before we can create a successful solution. Mindfulness is simply building paying attention skills to be able to be present with life on all levels as it is occurring (thoughts, body sensations, feelings, emotions, and the environment) so we can see the bigger picture of what is going on to then respond accordingly.
Mindfulness Helps Us Achieve Our Goals
If we want to achieve specific goals then mindfulness is very important because our point of power to make deliberate change is ONLY in the present moment. If we are not present, how can we be aware of how our actions are limiting our results or what the best next steps are? When we are not aware we cannot see the bigger picture to learn what is going on to assess how to take purposeful action to best support our desired goals. This is because when we are not mindfully present with what we are doing on enough levels our automatic subconscious habits, thoughts, and beliefs will be running our behaviours by default, including our manifesting power.
As the old saying goes, “If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got.”
