Our mind, in general, is always full of ideas and thoughts that make it difficult for us to see what is in front of us.
And this is normal, the mind wanders.
In addition, we tend to lead a hectic pace of life, without pauses and therefore the mind is in a state of constant internal dialogue (“mind wandering”) instead of in a state of serenity or calm.
That wandering or rambling mind makes it difficult to experience the present and has its implications.
The keys to Mindfulness, in a help context, can be summarized in three points:
It is an awakening, an awareness of ourselves, of our thoughts, our sensations and our actions.
Knowing if what we are experiencing is in accordance with what we want, if it gives us peace of mind or, on the contrary, it worries us.
It is putting order in what goes through our mind.
➣ LIVING THE PRESENT EXPERIENCE
It is the time to be and to be, to perceive and analyze our awareness.
Understanding how we feel, if it gives us peace or disturbs us.
It’s getting to the origin of those emotions, understanding why they make us feel like this.
Grant us permission to experiment and even suffer.
➣ INTEGRATE ACCEPTANCE WITHOUT JUDGMENT
This step is very important.
Once we have become aware and have lived what we have experienced, we are left to receive all of it without opposition.
Do not look for reasons, do not condemn. Accept what is.
It’s not resigning, it’s seeing everything from the perspective that helps us face or change what doesn’t make us happy.
