Today, right now…this very moment is a gift and the opportunity to create your life
the way you want to experience.
Everyday is a new day for creation, your voice has meaning, so create and share your message to the world.
Today is a brand new day, let go of your self impose limitations and open yourself to the
infinite possibilities that the universe has for you.
Everyday is a new day for creation, your thoughts will manifest in the physical realm, every minute and hour of the day, so be careful which thoughts you manifest and keep in mind what results do you want.
Today is a brand new day, to be all you can be, expressing your most authentic self to everything and everyone you come in contact with, with no reservation.
Do you want to participate in the creation process or do you want to be in the reaction process?
This question is vital in how you perceive and approach your day…from routines to schedule events and also from unexpected situations.
From the reaction process, your experiences will be a result of your ego mind, always defending and preserving the status quot. Reactions will be stimulated from your imbedded set of beliefs, which could be either good or bad depending on the outcomes.
As you know emotion is really energy in motion and emotions can be also been described as discrete and consistent responses to internal or external events which have a particular significance for the person.
Emotions are brief in duration and consist of a coordinated set of responses, which may include verbal, physiological, behavioral, and neural mechanisms.
Emotions have also been described as biologically given and a result of evolution because they provided good solutions to ancient and recurring problems that faced our ancestors.
Emotions are thought to be related to certain activities in brain areas that direct our attention, motivate our behavior, and determine the significance of what is going on around us.
Experiencing emotions is like going for a car ride with them. If we are triggered emotionally but unaware of what we are experiencing, our emotions take the driver’s seat.
We end up sitting in the back seat, and our emotions take us where they will…and most probably it will be in the reaction mode.
With emotional awareness, however, we sit in the front seat alongside our emotions, and become the navigator, which quickly brings me to the point of responding vs. reacting.
When you respond to anything, you are actually giving yourself some time or space to be able to create a solution or just accept what it is. From this point of view, now you are creating a better outcome simply be allowing your inner self to guide you rather than your ego manic mind to take over and react. To be aware of our emotions we need to learn to tune into our body, where the sensations that make up our emotions manifest.
By noticing and labeling the sensations that we experience, we can learn to notice when we are triggered, know that we are about to go for a ride, and be in a better position to drive our actions purposefully in total awareness.
Over 2500 years ago the Buddha recognized the benefits of being aware of our bodily sensations. The practice of “mindfulness of body” (observing bodily sensations in a non-judgmental way) has long been a core part of Buddhist teachings. But recognition of the benefits of this skill is not limited to Buddhism as mainstream western psychology is also increasingly confirming the benefits of being aware of bodily sensations.
Our minds are usually busy with mental chatter. When we are triggered emotionally, our mind kicks into overdrive, spinning stories about what is happening. When struck by anxiety, for example, we might begin to imagine all the horrible things that are about to happen. Although we may have little information to confirm whether our thinking is true or not, these thoughts appear to be very truthful and real. We no longer distinguish between what our thoughts are telling us is happening and what we are actually experiencing.
So now we realize that awareness and staying in the present moment is vital to our inner happiness, so that we can then create a life each new given day.
We quite our minds, observe our emotions and respond in a calm state, that allows the full creation of positive and enduring experiences.
As stated before…The cause of unhappiness and emotional reactions stems from our false beliefs and that my friends can make your new day a very interesting one…full of surprises…which hopefully you can learn from.
But fortunately you have a choice, from the very moment you get up from your sleep…you have a choice.
You can create a wonderful world full of vibrant positive energy or you can also choose to make it a day of vibrant negative energy, but I can tell you that you will experience a different out come if negative energy is chosen, and for some people that is what they want, that is exactly what they are going to get…the laws of the universe does not discriminate.
As I started this article, today is a brand new day, what is it going to be for you?
As for me…each day is a new day…full of blessings and opportunities to live life to the fullest, to enjoy the moment, to love unconditionally, to be happy and that is my choice.
Live in harmony, peace and love…always
