The Power of the Present Moment

barbara-maslow

As we look deeply within, we understand our perfect balance. There is no fear of the cycle of birth, life and death. For when you stand in the present moment, you are timeless. ~ Rodney Yee, American yoga teacher

A while back one of our readers sent us this letter:

Hi John,

I understand that I create my reality and that my thoughts and vibration matter. A few days ago I was shopping with my daughter and a friend visiting a fun shop in Sedona. I was feeling good and enjoying the day.

The dressing room was taken, so the clerk invited me to use a storage room. While in the room a ladder fell and hit me in the forehead, making me quite dizzy and somewhat disoriented.

Can you possibly write a blog about how negative things come into our experience when we are feeling good?

Does it have to do with passing thoughts earlier in the day or other people’s energy? It’s about the little things and not the big issues that might have to do with sacred contracts or balancing of energies.

I would love to read your thoughts on this topic.

Thanks!

Here are some of our thoughts about this:

I’m sure most of us can relate to the “bad” day our friend had in Sedona.

Some days nothing seems to go right. Often, we resign ourselves to the situation and mutter, “Well, it was meant to be.” I know, because I’ve done it myself.

But that’s just a “cop-out,” a convenient excuse for giving up our power to “fate.”

Either we believe all these spiritual principles most of us have been learning—and teaching—for many years, or we do not. There is no middle ground.

We truly do create our own realities. We do it either deliberately, consciously. Or we do it by default, by refusing to acknowledge we are in control of our lives. Maybe we cannot always control external circumstances, but we can always control our reactions to those circumstances.

Spirit often tells us we should not beat up on ourselves when tough times arise. We should have compassion for anyone experiencing challenges, including ourselves.

All challenges are merely tools for learning. Learning what? Learning that we have simply forgotten all the power and wisdom we carry within ourselves. We are, after all, one with God—or whatever you prefer to call that all-powerful, all-wise, all-knowing universal energy.

To repeat our reader’s question:
“Does it (a “bad” day) have to do with passing thoughts earlier in the day or other people’s energy?”

Often, yes, it does have to do with our thoughts and other people’s energy. Of course, we’re not always totally aware of what’s happening at the time.

This is where it’s important to remember where all our power is. It’s in the present moment—always and only in the present moment. It can be nowhere else.

And yet many of our present moments are filled with regrets over our past, and fears for our future. In those moments we are neither fully aware, nor fully awake.

Only by being fully present in the moment will we empower ourselves and be fully alive.

All that exists is the present moment—the Now. We have nothing else. When we use our present moments wisely, we will be living in eternity, where time does not exist. We will be living with God.

Have you ever had experiences like those our reader had? Or perhaps you’re having them right now. How do you re-balance your energy when you have these experiences?

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.
Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
