Being Present

Leave a comment Standard

All my spiritual training has been about being in the body, being present. That is where the magic is at and I absolutely love experiencing it. I’ve been spending a lot of time learning about lucid dreaming and astral projection and what I am beginning to see and realize is that the more you can be present in your waking life, the more you can be present in a dream or out of body.

I know all sorts of visual techniques and energy work that help with being present, but I am trying something new and that is simply just sitting in meditation for 30 minutes and focusing on my breath. By focusing on your breath, you are more likely to be in present time. And by focusing only on my breath it seems easier to not have a million thoughts racing through my head. I am going to try to do this different and simple exercise in the morning and evening. The idea is that when you mediate in the morning, you are reconnecting with your body and setting the tone for you day. When you meditate at night you are ending your day and setting the tone for your dreams.

I love those moments where suddenly everything syncs up and you find yourself centered. You have that “ah ha” moment where you realize – I’m present! It’s a very joyful feeling. You feel as though nothing else matters in that moment, but what you are seeing and experiencing. Time actually seems to go out the window. You simply have showed up and connected with your body more deeply.

Just as I am typing this I realize that the moment I had yesterday, where I realized I was in the moment, it feels very similar to when you wake up in a dream and realize that you are dreaming. They are both very exciting and joyful experiences.

Whether or not you are interested in lucid dreaming or astral projection, being present in your waking life is really a blessing. It beats dwelling on the past and worry about the future. All the bullshit just fades away.

Hello, Present Time

Leave a comment Standard

Such magical moments I recall

What made them unique? What made them so special?

Was it that I found present time and didn’t realize it at all?

Back from the clouds and in this vessel

Here I am, another moment and I feel alive

I am happy and this feels familiar

Am I falling in love with this body?

Am I falling in love with this life?

Happy to be alive, I don’t think about pain

So glad that I made the decision to switch lanes

The past is the past – you are no problem at all

Can I let the future go, can I let go of control?

Could I just let it ride, could I trust in the free fall?

Present time, don’t slip away, it feels too good

I’m here to stay.

Showing Up

Leave a comment Standard

Between the both of us, we have classes and events at four different spaces. We are having success… But that does not come without failure. There have been classes that we created where people are not showing up. And there are numerous reasons for that; time of day, people on vacation, we are new, etc. But the important thing here is that even though we have the feeling nobody is coming, we still show up.

Showing up every time is us being committed. Even though it can be discouraging when nobody arrives, we leave knowing we did not give up. Last night there was a class in which people usually do not show up for, but this time someone did. Sometimes it is just a matter of patience. 

After leaving the studio last night and arriving at our campground, I had an epiphany. I’m a traveling psychic. I often don’t like using the word “psychic” because of the negative energy attached to it, but that is what I am. I love traveling and I love teaching. Making money is validating, but making money doing something you love – that is personal power. Being compensated for just being YOU. That to me is very much a dream. 

What I love most about teaching meditation is watching others learn and grow. The whole point of what I teach is for students to hit a wall and then breakthrough. People don’t come to me if they are not interested in change. Students come to me because they know there is something more, but don’t know how to obtain it or get there. Sometimes we just need some tools to help us move forward on our path. 

Last night we were talking about traveling in our RV and I was asked, “what are you seeking?” I know myself very well. I know my dreams. I would have to meditate more on what I am seeking currently, but simply off the top of my head, I am seeking new experiences. I am on the road to teach, see new places, try new things and to meet new people. Ultimately though, what I seek the most through all of this, is for me to show up. To be more present. That is what I seek.

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew

Today

Goodbye old world, you served us well

The bridge I crossed, I must have been compelled 

To open up, to grow and to change

To not feel like every day was just the same

Outside perception, maybe I’m insane 

But the other side of fear is a better today

The return from high altitude

Yeah I have an attitude 

Into a new world that was always there

Back to my heart, life is just not fair

But I can feel and I can see

And you better believe

This man here has clarity

Goodbye old world, you served us well

But now I am ready to pull from a different well

This game of life is a blast and I’m ready to play

Not from above, because I’m in my heart today
