Are You Living Consciously?

Written by Maria Flynn

Living consciously is your ability to live in the moment. Ummm…ok…that’s what I googled but is that enough to really gauge what it means? Truth is, living consciously is your ability to FEEL the moment and then to intellectually understand what each moment brings you.

If you’re wondering why life isn’t “all that” or if you’re digging SUPER DEEP to find the gratitude for your life (because it’s the right thing to do but struggle to get there) then this article is for you! Keep reading… you may discover that the only thing you lack is deeper understanding.

What’s to be gain from LIVING CONSCIOUSLY:

1. Growth and a Thirst For Life.

Living consciously is allowing yourself to grow. In fact, by being more aware of the present moment, you’ll invite growth into your life. And so, you begin the process of living consciously by way of exploring life with the moments and the feelings brought on by them. Exploring then welcomes a PASSION and a LOVE for life again (and again, and again…).

This is especially true if you’ve lost this by living your life by counting down the days to Friday (and that margarita waiting for you at your favorite restaurant); or waiting until your next paycheck (to feel that sense of relief), or waiting until your next vacation (to relax and let go).  Life is so much more than this cycle.

2. Become the Creator

Living consciously allows you to intellectualize the feelings you feel with each moment you allow yourself to be present. In other words, you can intellectualize energy. Instead of reacting to the feelings, or indulging in the pains you feel, your ability to step into growth and explore invites you to learn the lesson in it for you. When you know better, you can then DO BETTER moving forward.  When you DO BETTER moving forward, you become a greater CREATOR of your life.

3. Respons-ability and Empowermment

Getting smarter by living consciously invites you to naturally PAUSE and respond to Life and STOP REACTING to it.
You’ll master your mind and not be consumed by your emotions.

The PAUSE will naturally invite you to live in HARMONY with the world around you no matter what.  Life happens and life will continue to happen, and your ability to work with life gets better (because you’re smarter by simply choosing to live more consciously).  Setbacks will be temporary, and your ability to bounce back faster simply because you understand life and its ebb and flow.

4. Meaningful Life

The ebb and flow helps you connect to the amazing UNIVERSE and that greater deeper consciousness that allows you to connect with everything around you. The Universe is no longer “out there” because your conscious living brings about HOW YOU WORK WITH HER.  You’ve expanded space in your own life to welcome Her in. You feel the connection and realize you’re an extension and expression of Her (not separate).

And so…

You’ll want to take responsibility for the energy and the impact you bring to this world. You’ll deeply become aware of how important it is to take care of Mother Earth. You’ll feel the impact you bring (and that each of us brings). It’ll hurt your heart to litter, see litter, watch others litter. Your life takes on a deep meaning and HOW YOU LIVE (how you show up) is the example that creates a ripple effect necessary for positive and healing change.

5. Judge Intelligently (here’s where too many get it wrong)

Living consciously supports your ability to awaken to your Soul Truth (your authentic self) and you’ll feel the disconnect when you’re not living your truth. The discomfort prompts you to continue to explore and then respond to life so that it promotes positive change.

The changes you welcome align with you and your truth. The changes you welcome empower you to say YES and NO with a lot of love for life itself and for the greatest and highest good.

Soul Truth revelations AWAKEN you to the core and so now BOUNDARIES become essential and even more natural because you want to create the space for even more FREEDOM.

Living consciously teaches you how to intellectualize energy and therefore you’re empowering your ability to exercise your right to make judgment calls and STOP justifying and living small for the sake of others. Please don’t misinterpret this. I’m not saying don’t be kind. Kindness is essential but quickly becomes useless if you let yourself be bulldozed by those only willing to take from you.

When you live consciously you live your Soul Truth and you awaken your own ability (more and more) to feel the energy and the world around you, letting you make the judgment call from the space aligned with love and greatest good and sometimes that means saying NO.

Living Consciously is allowing yourself to GROW and to be in a constant state welcoming growth to GREATNESS and here you know is where your gifts reside (for yourself and the world).
