The word attention as defined by Google.com means, “The action of dealing with or taking special care of someone or something.”
Doesn’t is seem exhausting to give your full attention to whatever you’re experiencing in life? This extra effort might be difficult to exert but it is really important to show up with an intention to gift “special care” to all that you do. Why, because my friend, you are worthy! The sacredness of creating this ritual is the practice of learning to live in the present moment. This topic has been discussed many times within this column; it is empowering to be present. As the clock cycles from each day through the night, you experience 86,400 seconds. Think about the last 24 hours, how many of these thousands of moments that you’ve endured, did you actually give your full attention?
In a recent 21-day meditation gifted by Oprah and Deepak, day 11, which was titled, Intentional Me, offered the centering thought, “I create my reality.”
As Oprah opened, she quoted Deepak, “Attention energizes; intention transforms.”
Deepak discussed, “… the abundant universe holds absolutely nothing back, it is only when we disconnect or deny our true power pretending we are anything less than magnificence creators that we find the doorway to abundance in life remains closed.”
He goes onto share the benefit of being fully aware, ”stay awake in your moment-to-moment reality and choose with intention… thoughts, feeling beliefs and actions create reality.”
If you would like to experience holiness in your life, it is as simple as embracing the purity of the present moment. Use your attention to energize while transforming your life through your intention. Remember this as the chaos of the holiday season attempts to overwhelm. The intention in the present moment will cut through the madness of just about anything; this is powerful stuff!
