Hi EveryOne,

How are you going with your Power to be Present? I must admit, though I love being here in Childers I’ve allowed myself to be a bit distracted. I received both good and bad news regarding my health. Good news is – I’ve finally found some natural practitioners who are diligently working to help me heal. According to my latest blood tests, once again I’m told by doctors I’m ‘fine’ – that pain and fatigue is something I have to live if I’m not prepared to take medication (regardless of the side affects). But I ‘know’ my body is not ‘fine’ so investigated further with a Naturopath, Iridologist and Acupuncturist. Bad new… my organs are starting to shut down (far from ‘fine’ right?). Nevertheless, I feel positive that we are here at the right time as I can already feel a slight improvement. Though being chronically fatigued I caught myself reverting to old ‘default’ reactions. I allowed a ‘permanent resident’ here at the caravan park to manipulate and upset me. Fortunately I realised quickly and nipped it in the bud (something I wouldn’t be able to do if I had not been practicing my Powers on a regular basis).

As I’ve mentioned before – I may not always get it right, but continually practicing my powers allows me to catch myself quicker – stopping me from continuing down that slippery slope of life. You see, ’tests’ will come from any angle – it’s part of life, growth and wisdom. So no matter how ill or tired we feel, this Power (and all our powers) are of utmost importance to practice so to not be affected by others. For when I’m distracted, clearly I still allow others to walk through my mind with their dirty feet – even for a little while – which is NOT ok… Lesson: Stay present so pain or fatigue won’t have a hold over me – and neither will others :)

Here are 10 quotes to remind you of the importance of practicing this Power :)

2. “Life gives you plenty of time to do whatever you want to do if you stay in the present moment.” — Deepak Chopra

3. “The meeting of two eternities, the past and the future – is precisely the present moment” — Henry David Thoreau
4. “Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” — Wayne Dwyer

5. “If your mind carries a heavy burden of the past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.” ― Eckhart Tolle

6. “The present moment, if you think about it, is the only time there is. No matter what time it is, it is always now.” — Marianne Williamson

7. “What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind” ― Buddha

8. “Whatever has happened to you in your past has no power over this present moment, because life is now.” — Oprah Winfrey

9. “We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment.” — Chanakya

10. “Remember then: there is only one time that is important – NOW! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power.” — Leo Tolstoy

Love life everyone, it’s too short not to, Love Annemarie
