Live in the Present

Peace Valley ParkLiving in the present is a way of life. By focusing on what it right in front of us now, we give open ourselves up to the opportunities that are present right in this moment of time. People often wonder why, when we get older, time seems to disappear before our very eyes. We turn around and weeks, months, even years, have passed.

I used to think that it was the increase of responsibilities as we got older that made time fly. As children, we have no concerns except for living in the moment. That is when I realized that it is our worries, regrets and fears that rob us of our time and experiences.

By worrying about what could be, we are not living in the present or paying attention to our immediate surroundings because we are too busy creating scenarios in our heads. With regrets, it is a replaying of life videos in our heads which block our vision. Worries and regrets are the parents of fear and fear is what prevents us from taking positive action in our lives.

To clear your head and live in the present, start by making yourself more aware of your patterns of thinking. When you catch yourself getting wrapped up in worries, regrets or fears, stop the mind chatter and remind yourself to “be here now” because right now is what living is all about.

This doesn’t mean that you never look forward or back. From time to time, we need to look forward to make plans and back to learn lessons from our past. Make plans, look back to see what you could’ve done better and then let it go. You know what to do now and plans are set. There is no need to obsess about either the past or the future.

Open your eyes. Look around. Be grateful for what have in your life at this very moment – whether it is for the warmth of the sun, a friend sitting beside you, the blessing of good health, or the roof over your head. Savor all blessings large and small and recognize the joy of the moment within yourself. You can even share it out loud.

There are wonderful people, signs, and opportunities right in front of you. By keeping your eyes open and your mind on the present, you give yourself the opportunity to make the most of your time. You may even find, like I did, that time seems to slow down. When you savor each moment for what it is, you are fully living your life.

Most importantly, by living in the present, you give your Angels and Spirit Guides an opportunity to step in and help guide you in decisions that lead to your greatest happiness. They place opportunities and signs in front of you all of the time. All you need to do is open your eyes to the wonders of the present to be the beneficiary of these great gifts.

Our Thoughts Determine Our Destinies

Lotus_White_300x200We have all heard about the power of positive thinking and how our thoughts determine our destiny; however, how many of us truly believe that and actually live that?

There are some wonderful dreams that I would like to see manifested in my life, as I am sure you have in yours. I have made a definitive decision to actively send out positive thoughts toward my true heart’s desires and have asked the Angels to help me to achieve them. I let go of trying to make these dreams manifest on my own because I know my vision here on Earth is limited. The Angels see more than we do and can help guide us on the right path. I know that I must open myself up to the guidance that they give me and to always keep my thoughts positive about my dreams. I do this by infusing a bright light around my dreams and visualizing them in their wholeness as already completed.

The message that the Angels want me to share with you is to open your mind and imagination. Visualize your deepest desires and dreams coming true. See yourself basking in the happiness that is truly yours to live. Your dreams are meant to come true, regardless of the circumstances around us. If we can dream it, we can live it. All we have to do is truly believe with all of our hearts that we not only deserve this happiness, but also can experience the materialization of our dreams in our lifetimes here on Earth, not just in Heaven.

Keep in mind that the way our dreams will manifest may involve circumstances that appear negative on the surface. Let go of momentary disappointment in the small twists and turns that our lives take as these seemingly negative circumstances or events may be necessary to clear out obstacles that were impeding our progress. Be open to change, take it all in stride, and take time each day to acknowledge with gratitude the positive events and circumstances in your life every day. Keep visualizing your actualized dream. The Angels, who assist the Creator in manifesting our happiness, will help you. All you have to do is ask for their help and truly believe that they are assisting you.

I am interested in hearing about your dreams and what you are doing to make them a reality. Please feel free to share in the comments section below.
