Mindfulness can be an incredibly healing and powerful personal practice technique. Yet, many people only think of monks living in caves when they think of mindfulness. But, it doesn’t have to a difficult or painful process at all. Instead, mindfulness can be simply about reminding yourself to be aware of the present moment.
Many of us might look at a mindfulness practice as being like Spock or a robot. However, being rigid and absolutely logical is not the purpose of having a mindfulness practice. It’s also not about having the patience to peel a million potatoes or hand counting a basket of apples over and over again. But, it is about recognizing how you feel in each moment, and being willing to look below the particular emotion you may be feeling.
At first, the process seems dull and straight forward, yet it can bring about dramatic personal change. For me, one of the most rewarding benefits of a mindfulness practice is that it can help me to be aware of the ways in which I may let things like doubt and worry become obstacles. I continue to look at ways in which I can become more aware of the moments in which my mind seems to be caught in a loop of worry. It’s really about realizing that I might not even perceive a situation as it truly is. How often do you find out later that you reacted to a false impression of a particular event? Mindfulness can provide the spiritual “container” for you, so that you can better organize your life.
How do you want to shape and organize your life? How would it look, if you were actually in a place which afforded you the life you truly wanted to be living? Why not begin to have this experience now? What are your specific financial, professional, personal, and relationship goals? Are there obstacles in your path? What keeps you from making important or desired choices?
What blocks, limits or fears are in your way? Is any particular concern or doubt holding you back? Being mindful, can help you to see through the darkness, fog or haze and begin to get a clearer picture of your goals and desires. We all have the occasional difficulties in our lives. But, it is possible to work with experiences from our past to help us live better lives now.
Working within your own personal rhythm by utilizing your Personal Year cycle is one way that Numerology can help you to work with a Mindfulness practice. Each year of your life is part of an overall cycle. Each cycle is composed on 9 distinct years. Each year has its own overall pattern connected with it.
The #1 Personal Year is a great time for new beginnings, while the #2 Personal Year is great for partnerships. Each year builds on the progress and challenges of the last. For the most benefit, you should prepare yourself and be ready for the opportunities and challenges that will come up in each particular year of a particular 9 year cycle.
