Learning To Truly Experience The Present Moment

Nov 13, 2007
There is a lot of information out there within the law of attraction community about opening up in order to receive. This is such a difficult and important topic when working with the law of attraction that you could spend a large majority of your life studying it and still not learn all there is about it. It deserves your focus and attention.

Opening up is a process that takes time and energy to master to any degree. Opening up isn't so much about opening up, as you would do to a door or a window as it is about letting go and living in the moment. I honestly believe that the biggest problem for most people in life is that they have the awareness level of a rock.

People miss so much on a daily basis that they have no idea how wonderful and beautiful life is. A huge majority of the time people are so focused on themselves, thoughts of the past, thoughts of the future, thoughts about things they worry about. People are so focused on stuff that has very little to nothing to do with the present moment that they completely miss the present moment even though they are living it and miss out on all of the wonder and beauty it has to offer.

Think about it for a moment. During conversations, most people are so focused on what they are going to say next that they miss what the other person is saying. Most people want to rush in and state their point of view and their input that they totally miss what the other person is saying, and most of the time conversations involve both sides talking about themselves.

Part of working with the law of attraction is learning to live in the present moment. To truly begin to develop the awareness and pay attention so that you are able to recognize and take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves. The better you get at living in the here and now instead of thoughts about the past, the future, worries, stress, and a million other useless thoughts, the easier it will be for you to receive those things that you want in your life.

Living in the present moment involves truly paying attention. It's tasting every single bite as you take it. Hearing every single word as you listen. Feeling the rain as it falls on your skin or the wind as it rushes through your hair.

It's about letting the full vibrant colors of the leaves as they change and the shapes of the world around you. It's about chewing your food slowly in order to truly, truly enjoy it. It's about opening up and paying attention to what is going on around you right here and right now.

There is so much going on all the time that no one should ever be bored or need to think about other moments in time. The present moment has so much to experience that you need to learn to open up and pay attention to it and enjoy it and experience it. This is how we learn to open up and receive when working with the law of attraction. If you aren't paying attention to what is going on you will never be able to recognize a moment of potential because you will be to focused on another moment that is gone or hasn't happened it.

The other part of opening up is letting go. Letting go of the past and the future. Letting go of limiting ideas, perceptions, beliefs, control, hope, desire, wanting, and everything else.

This isn't to say that you shouldn't have goals and dreams or anything like that. It's about letting go of the need to have things different than they are because you haven't learned how to enjoy and appreciate the present moment.

Much of the control, hope, desire, wanting, perceptions, beliefs, and ideas that we have and hold are about needed to make things something they aren't or something we try to force them to be. Learn to appreciate the present moment, chase your dreams without the fear of hope, desire, or wanting, and truly attract what you want. Let go of those perceptions and beliefs and ideas because they only limit your ability to connect and open up with everything around you.

Let go of your need to control people and things. Let go of your desires and fears and the need to have things a certain way. Open up and experience and live completely in the present moment, and you will be amazed at what you can do and how well you can do.
