The Power of Presence

Give the gift of your presence this holiday season. Bless yourself and everyone around you with this one-of-a-kind gift. The gift of presence is about giving your time and being who you are where you are.

Remember that you are a human being not a human doing. All the activities, action items and to-do’s keep you busy doing instead of spending time being with the people who are your real priority. Intentionally invest your time being with someone who matters to you. Then be present through focus:

  • Focus your thinking – your thoughts have three possible dimensions. You can think about the past, the future or the present. Intentionally focus your thoughts on what’s around you in the present. Observe what’s happening right now. You may discover something amazing you’ve been overlooking.
  • Focus your conversation – during conversations, listen intently and be fully present with the person talking. Enjoy the interaction, the present moment and let things flow naturally without planning your next response.
  • Focus on your breath – take deep belly breaths and focus on feeling them fill up your lungs. Focusing on your breath is a quick way to bring you back to the present.

When you are present there is certain stillness and centeredness inside that enriches you and everyone around you. Be a present through your presence, it’s the gift only you can give!
