Wanting something more from life…?
Have you been searching all your life for a happiness that still eludes you?
By learning to look within we can begin to see that through transforming our own thoughts and emotions, we can come to live a life which is happy, rewarding and aligned with our deepest desires.
Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
The problem with our lives
Have you got a decent job? Experimented with various relationships? Played around with drink and maybe even drugs? All the things that are supposed to make you happy… ? And yet here you are, still searching…. Still feeling like something is missing from your life???
Could it possibly be that everything you have been told about happiness is a lie? And that all this time that you have been searching, you have been looking in the wrong place?
Benefits of Mindfulness
Our busy minds never let up and this makes it difficult to know what we really think and feel. Mindfulness allows us to create mental and emotional space and to see things more clearly.
By allowing ourselves space and time, we can really feel our emotions. So much of our lives is spent avoiding emotions, but when we really stop and listen, we begin to understand what we really want.
Often the answers we seek can be found if we can only listen carefully to our bodies and hearts. Through regular mindfulness practice we come to know what intuitively feels right to move forwards.
A natural side effect of mindfulness practice is that we relax. By relaxing the mind, and creating body awareness, we also allow the emotional heart to open, bringing a new energy and engagement with life.
Learn Self Compassion
The disease of the modern world seems to be that when we are unhappy, we punish ourselves for feeling that way. Instead we can learn to be kind to ourselves, whatever the situation we find ourselves in.
When we are happy, it is often because different parts of us seem to be pulling in opposite directions. Mindfulness pracitice promotes integration, meaning greater harmony and less resistance in our lives.
It is impossible to persist with mindfulness practice without becoming more honest with oneself. This means that what isn’t true tends to fall away and we naturally find ourself more aligned with our deepest desires.
By becoming more in tune with ourselves, we find we are able to communicate more authentically. And by chaging ourselves, we find our relationships also change for the better.
A New Orientation
With a new understanding that we no longer need to look outside of ourselves for happiness, we develop a new and more wholesome orientation towards life, with increased happiness and contentment.
