How Mindfulness Changed My Life

Mindfulness

I believe that there is a strong relationship between health and mindfulness. That’s why I already posted my interview with the psychotherapist and holistic health coach Jodi Baretz about mindfulness.

At first there was mindfulness..

As a consciousness being, we are born in this state of innocence where we enjoy our days moment by moment. But as we grow, we are “socialized” in a way that leaves us with little spontaneity and creativity and a lot of habits and automations.

I consider this transformation to be the source of the lack of mindfulness in the adult’s lives.

You feel it each time you have a great meal without enjoying it fully..

You feel it each time you are taking a shower and you don’t remember if you washed your back or leg..

You feel it when you are going to sleep and you’re drown in your own thoughts and day events replaying into your head.

I used to live this way. As a mother I have always had these exhausting days full of duties and tasks to accomplish that don’t  even leave me the time and energy to think and BE with myself.

Even if I always felt I’m blessed with those little “angels”, I got trapped in the habits patterns that make of my life a wheel of repetitive and automated tasks controlled mainly by the mind. At this point, I really needed to learn mindfulness, which is simply to live the moment in the here and now.

The return..

Imagine going to sleep with all your consciousness focused on this opportunity to recharge your energy and relax your body completely..

Imagine eating your meal enjoying every single flavor in every bite of it..

Imagine being completely available when your child talks to you..

I see it as a return to innocence..because that’s how I felt the first time I tried it.

Many trainings helped me to learn how to keep returning to mindfulness in day to day life. The best trainings I ever had are those of Mindvalley, which is a great international company that brings great teachers from around the world to teach and help you enjoy your life in every aspect you can imagine, in the comfort of your home.

I enjoyed the free masterclass of Jeffrey Allen about energy healing, Christie Marie Sheldon’s training about abundance energy blocks, and Sonia Choquette’s training to tune into our heart and listen to our intuition.

Those trainings were of a huge help for me as I learned in them how I was holding myself back because of thinking patterns that are avoidable with mindfulness.

Your experience..

Did you also experience mindfulness and tried to start LIVING instead of EXISTING?
