Why I Moved toward Practicing Presence

When I first began this leg of my journey, all I wanted to do is escape from feeling forced to make either/or decisions. We had opened a second branch  of our business and established a second home in Philadelphia at great expense, believing we were being guided to greater levels of success and freedom. When I finally allowed myself to know that I was in Philly for reasons other than expanding our energy business and that that business was losing money at great rates, I felt frustration, anger, sadness. I had a “come to Jesus” meeting with God, my guides, the Earth, and anyone else who would listen. I railed, “I will no longer live in a reality where all I have in front of me are these either/or choices. There must be something beyond this…somewhere where I can I don’t have to choose…where I can experience both/and. I want to go there.” So began the next steps of my Transcendent Journey.

My First Steps toward Practicing Presence

All of a sudden I started receiving (or at least I  noticed that I was receiving) emails from various coaches, offering free teleseminars with various presenters. Through these experiences, I met older brothers and sisters who were several steps ahead of me on the Path — Rikka Zimmerman, Sebastian Dudley, SARKPanache Desai, Adam King. I first just listened to the free teleseminars. Then, I bought my first audio program with Rikka and listened to audios nightly. After, I was led to do my first in-person seminar with Rikka. It took me over six months to process that first encounter, as I continued to explore the idea of asking questions instead of jumping to conclusions. When Rikka returned to Atlanta, I was inspired to make the stretch and work with her for a week, where I met Sebastian who first mentioned practicing presence. I didn’t even know what he was talking about, but the energy he shared with me felt good. In this meeting, Sebastian talked about Panache Desai. I started following Panache’s work. When Panache shared Adam King’s Miracle Frequency Solfeggio on You Wealth Revolution, I connected with Adam. When I listened to Tessera, I was inspired to reconnect with SARK. I continue this exploration into Oneness and am learning more every day about who I am and how to show up in life authentically, by following in the foot steps of spiritual family who are already on this journey.

What is Practicing Presence?

As my mentor’s work evolved, they all started talking about practicing presence. I had a deep sense of what that meant but was hardly conscious enough at that point, still being fairly angry about our business losses, to follow their lead. But, as I asked more questions, stopped judging my emotional content so that it could flow, I felt more connected to something greater than me, that I like to call, “God” or “Infinite Source.” The first sign that my life was changing is that I stopped being so angry and frustrated; had times when I felt a sense of stillness, even in the midst of turmoil (like when my business partner and best friend had a stroke last year).

As I had longer periods of stillness, I realized that that stillness was me experiencing my connection to my soul. I became more awake to the idea that practicing presence is a matter of bringing awareness of that connection to the present moment. If I’m eating toast, I savor the flavor and texture, instead of writing emails while I don’t even notice what I’m eating. If I’m with my best friend, I look him in the eye and listen to what he is saying, instead of planning what I want to say next. When I’m talking on the phone with my sister, I focus on the conversation instead of remembering how sad I felt that she ignored my birthday last year. Having the experience I’m having without letting my mind drift into the future or the past opens the channel where my soul can experience through my body whatever is happening here and now. This is a simple description of how I am enriching my life experience by practicing presence.

I would love to hear how you practice presence on your journey. Please feel free to leave me a comment or ask questions.

When You Can’t Accept

What Happens when You Don’t Accept What Is Law of Attraction pretty much is mainstream these days, but most people, even after taking classes or listening to audios, still can’t apply what they’ve learned to increase their point of attraction.
