Attention, Attention! Do I have your attention? Where is your attention? Wherever your attention is, that too is where your power lies. The thing which you focus on, vacillate over, agonize about, and turn over and over in your mind has your power. So, be aware of where you allow your mind to travel and what you spend your time thinking about and what you go about setting your attention on. Do you want to give fear, anxiety, debt, worry, etc. your power?
I know that I have spent a great deal of time in my life handing my power over to other people; I gave them a great deal of my attention and so a great deal of my power. So many things came of doing that; so many undesirable things. It is important to constantly check in with who we are giving our attention to. Does the attention that we give to that person or persons empower us? Sometimes a person has our attention because it is like looking in a mirror; we see the habits, behaviors, etc. (in this other person) that we truly do not like about ourselves. Give yourself and the poor, unsuspecting person a break; recognize and embrace your feelings and then make the choice to work on those behaviors that you see as negative. Bring your attention to the positive changes that you are making.
To bring our power home; back to our center, we must bring out attention home. We must bring our attention back to the center. This is a very simple and easy thing to do; it only requires a bit of practice and consistency. To truly regain our power, we need only to bring our focus and attention back to the moment; to whatever it is that we are doing right now. For example, if you are reading a book, bring your focus to the words on the page and the intention of the author; be aware when your mind wanders off and re-focus. In this modern day of technology, our attention is so scattered. Our attention is like confetti that has been cast into the wind; it is spread out all over the place. Gather your attention and you are re-gathering your power.
“If you can change your mind, you can change your life.” -William James
We are in a time when being in alignment with our highest and truest self is essential. The distractions of the Coronavirus and all of the changes, fear, etc. that it is creating are a challenge for keeping our center. The BEST way to find and keep balance and maintain our power is to spend time in nature. Get outdoors. Not only do we restore our own power and gain balance from the trees, birds, grass, insects, plants, etc. but we also help to keep our immune system strong and healthy. https://firstname.lastname@example.org/coronavirus-and-the-sun-a-lesson-from-the-1918-influenza-pandemic-509151dc8065
Bring your attention to the trees, the sky, a bird. Feel the fresh air clear your lungs and your mind. With each moment that you are focused on nature and your own true essence, you are restoring your power. You are healing and building your own immune system. It is so simple and we have everything that we need to do it. No prescription necessary.
We will get through this crisis. How we each get through it also determines how we all get through it together. If we individually are in awareness and in control of where we allow our attention to be, we are contributing to the overall sense of calm, unity, and hope that we need to manage this journey together. Thank you for collaborating with me to create a collective that is focused on unity consciousness and the beautiful way that we are all in this together and creating hope and joy where there is fear and illness.
Thank you for your attention.
