Let me be honest with you: I love cosmetics and beauty products. Always have, always will. While I am merely a Sephora “Beauty Insider” and not “VIB” or “Rouge” status, I must admit, these things delight me. And, as you know, the things that delight you are good for your spirit. 😉
I recently purchased an eyelash primer, which you coat on your lashes before applying mascara. It’s interesting and not wholly necessary, but my point with this story is this: I was having one of those “thinking too much” moments. I was prepping to do videos, and thinking too much about nothing concerning videos, and I decided enough was enough. I gathered all of my energy and focused ONLY on coating my East Indian eyelashes (thanks Dad) with the eyelash primer. And then, coating them with mascara. That was all that I focused on.
And it worked.
While I felt a tad ditzy focusing ONLY on doing this, I reminded myself that this is the essence of mindfulness, a practice that is extremely therapeutic. By focusing only on the task at hand, you make your entire life a meditation. You are in the present moment, the now, the only thing that really exists.
All else is extraneous.
We are trained to be completely on top of everything at all times. To multi-task. To be doing and thinking of many things at once, for if we do not, something will surely slip through the cracks.
But all of this doing-ness can be over taxing to our minds and bodies, not to mention our spirits. We forget to breathe, to really experience the moment as it’s happening, to literally BE HERE NOW. Too much doing-ness amounts to distraction, which weakens our energy.
One of the most beautiful things about clairvoyance is that when you are doing a clairvoyant reading, in order to be good, you must focus. Your attention cannot wander. Your entire consciousness is completely focused on delivering a reading and energy healing to the person you are working with. And there have been many times in my life where I have found this to be a complete relief, for it allows me to take my mind off of myself and focus on another soul. It really is a gift.
You might not be able to master mindfulness immediately, but what I have noticed is that if you allow for clear moments to come in, you will feel relief. A classic example for me is trying to not be on my phone while with my son at the park. I watch him play. He likes this, because he’s one of those kids who’s always looking to see if I’m watching him. I notice the trees and the sky and the other children. I simply pay attention, and it does feel very good. Sometimes I feel guilty – like I should be checking emails and reading the news and monitoring the stock market – but that doesn’t need to be done 24/7.
Life is to be lived, and to do so, simply calm your thoughts, observe, see, and feel. It really is OK to do this…and not only is it OK, it’s marvelously good for your mind, body, and spirit.
That’s all for today. I am going to now try and be mindful! But remember, if there’s anything in your life that you need assistance with, I’m here to help with readings, energy healings, on-demand meditations and my psychic development training program. So just reach out! 🙂
