Welcome to The Art of Living big podcast. My name is Betsy Pake, and I’m an author, speaker, and a master mindset coach focused on helping you understand and design your life with the power of your subconscious. This podcast is designed to help you think differently about what could be possible for your life. Now, let’s go live big. Good morning fellow adventurers Happy Monday. To start you off this week, I wanted to offer you the intention of centering and this the intention of being present.
This past year, I have given up coffee, you may have heard me talk about it on a previous podcast. And although I don’t miss the caffeine, honestly, I’m shocked how much I miss having coffee, going places and having coffee, this smell of coffee. And I have found my mornings to be a struggle. I’m thinking about it a lot. And most of all, I’m yearning for coffee. I’m yearning for something that I don’t have. And for something that I’ve decided isn’t in the best health for my body to have. And so it’s unavailable to me. And I’ve found in this yearning, I think about it a lot.
It takes my thoughts away in the morning. And I know it’s just coffee. But as I started thinking about it, and why it would have such a profound effect, because it’s not the caffeine, it’s something else. And I realized that there was a way for me to escape this yearning for something that I didn’t have. And it was to become completely present, to come centered in my body, to take away from my flesh and my bone and my physical yearning for something that I didn’t have and to come back into myself. And there are times where I do this simply by noticing where I am, and feeling my feet and my legs, and my arms, and my neck and my head, and feeling where I am in that. And when I can connect to that piece, that presence, that moment of where I am, and who I really am, I noticed that that yearning completely disappeared.
It just went away. And it didn’t come back again until I separated from that piece of me until I stepped back into this world of who I am and how I usually run my mornings and live my life until I stepped back into the routines and the habits. That’s when I missed it. That’s when that absence was felt and the yearning returned. And so I want to offer you the intention this week, to get present, to get fully involved with who you are in every moment. And maybe you start out with just one or two moments a day.
Maybe it’s something you remind yourself of throughout the day, so that you can connect in. And when you can connect in, you’re no longer thinking about the things that you wish you had, or the things you miss, or the things that aren’t going in the way that you wish they were. And when you can separate from that and become mindful and present in your center. Then you start to align with what your soul really wants.
And if that’s just a couple moments a day, or it’s all throughout the day, it is a win. Because it’s bringing you back to who you are and where you’re supposed to be. And how you should truly be focused on your life. So today and this week, become present in you. Because you are an infinite being you’re a miracle that you’re even here. And there is so much goodness waiting for each and every one of us when we can come in touch with that power, and that inner being of who we are meant to be and move through this world. I’ll see you all on Thursday.
