P stands for Presence

Image result for present moment

Hello! Happy Hump Day! Or as I like to call it Wellness Wednesday! If you’re following along with the Wellness Wednesday posts, this week we are at the letter P. I’ve been posting a letter per week from ‘The Soul of Affirmations’ by Deepak Chopra and Adam Plack and P stands for Presence.

This affirmation is short and sweet and but gets to the point. These are my favorite type; simple yet effective. However, its seems staying present, at least for me, is challenging. I’m constantly reminding myself to stay present so  I don’t focus on the past or the future. When I focus on the past, I lose my creativity and light. When I focus on the future, I get anxiety because of the unknown. Stay in the present moment *closes eyes*.

And without further ado, here is Deepak’s affirmation:

‘P stands for Presence

Today I will find my soul here and now

This affirmation is about the present moment

Make this your promise for today

Try to be as present as you can

And when you become aware that you have wondered from the present moment, ask to be brought back

The mind easily slips out of the now

We fantasize about the future

We reminisce about the past

When we feel distressed, we anticipate the pain to come or remember the pain that went before

Each detour takes us out of the present moment

Yet the here and now is the only meeting place where you will find your soul

So let’s begin:

Today I will not dwell on the past or the future

I will realize, I have no need of either the past or the future when I step fully into the present

Today I will release all ghosts from my past so I may vanquish all ails

I will no longer hold onto pain until it becomes anger

Today, I will no longer hold onto pleasure before it becomes an addiction

I will not anticipate pain or pleasure in the future to relieve my anxiety

The present is the home of my being

The past and future are only the dreams of whom I was or what I might become

Today, I will release the past and its burden of wounded dreams’
