Being in the Now

By Stefanie Miller

I have been experiencing so many challenges since the beginning of 2009. Although I've felt frustrated and weathered at times I've kept my spirits up and have made my way through many of the issues I've been dealing with.

The guidance I have been receiving about what many of us are going through is that we are learning how to stay in the present moment and take better care of ourselves. As we are going through a multitude of challenges all at once it can become quite overwhelming and we tend to lose sight of what is occurring.

When we can stay focused in the present moment we can deal with what is happening. If we are busy worrying about the future and what might happen and what could go wrong we are using our precious energy concerning ourselves with things that might not ever come to be and lose sight of the options we have and the things we have control over handling. The same goes for spending our energy thinking about the past and what we should have done or how we wish things had turned out.

My present challenges were to guide me in learning how to take care of my needs and tune into my physical body. I tend to be a thinker. I can spend endless hours analyzing and dissecting a situation. I also spend a lot of my time in the higher spiritual realms connecting with energy and Source. I have spent so much time out of my physical body that my feet barely touch the ground. My earthly issues have forced me to take notice of my surroundings, and body. Our bodies are our temple. It is important for us to honor and take good care of ourselves in order to stay in balance and healthy.

I have always found it necessary to disconnect from my physical body to avoid things that I don't want to see or deal with. It is a defense mechanism of the highly sensitive person in order to protect us from negativity. I am usually so detached from my physical body that I don't know where I'm going half the time, I tend to bump into things and make careless mistakes because I am not really fully grounded in my physical body. I have learned that while it protects me in some ways it prevents me from being really present and being aware of my guidance. When we are not grounded we cannot manifest abundance in our lives. We must be present in the earth realms and in our lives in order to anchor our light and energy onto the planet. We must assure our inner selves that it is safe and that being here is a positive thing.

I see so much pain and conflict in the world that I tend to shut out all of the bad and go into my own private world where I do not need to acknowledge or deal with what is occurring. These past few months I have been forced to deal with our 3-D world and take notice. While I am not connecting with the confusion or chaos of mass consciousness, I am viewing the outer world with more compassion and being available when I am needed.

The past few months, things seemed to get really busy and then slow down to inaction. We have been in the void as things are manifesting and aligning at a higher level. We are learning how to trust and wait for what is for our higher good to manifest. Trying to rush or push things to happen is futile. Sometimes we may get results but they would not be in accordance with what is meant for us, since the process must happen in its own time and way.

It is necessary to make an effort in the direction we want to manifest things. If we don't, we are not showing the Universe what we want and need. The difference is putting out feelers and taking steps to achieve what we want but then watching the signs along the way. When things happen easily and naturally we know we are on the right track to continue in that direction. When we get to a point where the energy slows down or opportunities are not arriving, this is how we know to take a break and wait for things to start moving again.

During these lulls in our progression it is important to take the time to slow down and rest. When the energy begins full force we will wish to have the needed quiet time. So we must take the time to notice when to move forward and when to stop. We are learning how to get into the divine flow and read the energy of this time. We are being guided to tune into our bodies and pay attention to what is happening in our lives. When we are connected to our Higher Self and Source we are able to easily and gently go with the flow and be in our Divinity.

The holds up and challenges are teaching us how to live in conscious awareness and mindfulness. The days of acting and reacting are becoming obsolete if we want to be in balance. The challenges and health issues we are experiencing are clearing out so much of the old ways of being and doing and we are detoxing at a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. We might have feelings of being empty or lost. In order to make room for a more authentic way of living the old must leave. For a time we are in the void in preparation for the new. We must honor this process, as it is very sacred and necessary.

We may feel pain, confusion, frustration, fear and anxiety. If we can stay mindful to not attach ourselves to these emotions we can allow ourselves to feel our feelings while taking an honest look at what we've created in our lives and what we want and don't want to experience, then take the conscious steps to making changes.

Trust me when I say enjoy the quiet times because when things get busy we will hardly have a chance to take a breath! Surprising new opportunities will present themselves from sources we didn't even think or know were available to us. Prepare yourself by opening up to the unlimited possibilities by being open to receive, mindful of your surroundings and aware of the direction the energy is guiding you.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
