How to be Mindful About the Amazing, Wonderful Progress
Sometimes being mindful about our progress seems impossible to handle. Other times, we forget just how much power we have. Yet, being mindful is not such a stretch. We must remember how to tap into and thus embody this side of ourselves. Matter of factly, it is usually a result of past and present and parallel life societal conditioning that makes it difficult to break these karmic cycles. So, with these inhibitions, the question remains: how to be mindful about the amazing, wonderful progress?
Well, the answer does lie in plain sight. Without a doubt, the answer is most frequently closer to home. And, in some cases, way too close to home. But, we must not sell ourselves too short. As such, being mindful requires looking at the bigger picture and realizing the whole of who we are. Nonetheless, we must pay attention to everyday occurrences.
Unfortunately, the answer to our sorrows are not only too naked for the eye to see but also what we typically take for granted.
Because of this, one of the best arguments for how to be mindful about our progress is expressing gratitude
Yes, be grateful. We must be grateful for the fact we’ve grown (and slept!) since yesterday. We must be grateful because we are alive and well. Most importantly, we must be grateful for everything that is going right in our lives, faults and all.
As such, if we were perfect, there wouldn’t be any progress to be grateful for. What would be the purpose of evolution, enlightenment, and elevation if not for the inevitable deflation of the ego? Sure, our true nature is that of evolution, enlightenment, and elevation, but sometimes being the limitless within the limited is necessary to not only come full circle but also expand into something far greater.
For instance, every day, I see angel numbers. Typically, they are a series of triplets, or triple digits that are either magnified by the same number or in increasing order. Quite frankly, as a birth native of November 8, I tend to see eights very frequently (i.e. 188. 288. 388. 488, 588. 688, 788. 888, 988). Moreover, I keep seeing angel number 710, the first number I saw on my clock earlier this morning, which symbolizes congratulations for being on the right path, spiritual enlightenment, and of course success. Furthermore, the quality and quantity of angel numbers I encounter have increased drastically since I first experienced angel numbers such as 1111 and 555.
Essentially, expressing gratitude is the key to attracting more blessings into your life and radiating an ever-abundant being
Moreover, we can express this in a verbal or nonverbal way. Accordingly, this includes thoughts, words, and actions. Of course, meditation is a great way to express gratitude. An effective, practical solution to boosting our body and mind intelligence and solidifying our connection with our higher self. As such, we speed up the manifestation process and undergo a metamorphosis.
For me, I can attest to the fact that meditation has made me a more pleasant, emotionally intelligent, and meta cognizant person. For example, I can see into myself, know how I’d normally react to a similar situation, and respond differently. And, that’s the key: respond not react. After all, there is a gap between stimuli and response. However, do we observe what happens in this space? The more adequate question is: how do we observe the happenings in this gap?
The aroma of popcorn, the taste of our last gourmet meal, the touch of a magical spark, the sight of a waxing crescent, the sound of fireworks, etc.
We’d be shocked by the power of being mindful of all that is going on inside.
The space between information and how we process it is vast, limitless
Indeed, as the Phenomenal Experience articulates, “Neurons are nerve cells that process and transmit electrochemical signals” and “every time each neuron fires a signal, 1,000 other neurons get that information.” The brain has approximately 100 billion neurons to transmit information, which is approximately “200 neurons per second.” Moreover, the brain processes 20,000,000,000,000 bits of information (20 million billion), not to mention how 1 neuron sends 1,000 neurons information. Also, every time we think a complete thought, how many neurons fire and process information, “probably billions”? Over 99% percent of the tasks our brain do we don’t notice. So perhaps being mindful of how “astoundingly fast” and “phenomenal we really are” is the key to how to be mindful about the amazing, wonderful nature we have.
How to be mindful: imagine how much power a single neuron has
Imagine how much power we have when we piece together how to be mindful individuals. On top of this, I am currently reading “10% Happier” by Dan Harris and it is opening my being up in more ways than I anticipated.
Even in situations where I know I am being bullshitted, I do a significantly better job with being poised, emanating positivity, and staying productive. Furthermore, to reiterate, I indoctrinate myself with the habit to congratulate myself for how far I’ve come. Because of this, I know that I am going to continue to make progress. To be honest, if there are one million things to complain about, there are at least one million and one things to be grateful about. As such, I understand how invaluable my energy is and thereby strive to spend, ahem, invest it wisely, like currency.
That’s what how to be mindful is all about
It is not a scarcity mindset or that of lack or limitation or poverty. Being mindful is an abundance of wisdom, understanding, growth, development, progress, and ascension. Indeed, we must prioritize our energy to being mindful of our inhibitions, limitations, and shortcomings.
Yet, it is important to keep our vibrations up, or as high as possible. Think as many positive thoughts as possible. The more positive our thoughts, the more positive we will feel about ourselves and act accordingly.
Nonetheless, knowing how we sabotage ourselves is an outlet to providing an antithetical energetic supply. In other words, sabotage is almost a mindless activity, or we do it without thinking about the implications or repercussions necessary, yet being mindful sets ourselves free. Thus, we understand that we are without limitations and inhibitions.
In the end, how to be mindful about the amazing, wonderful progress in our lives also includes embracing ourselves in all stages of our lives, celebrating the smallest accomplishments, validating our experiences, loving ourselves unconditionally, and mastering the art of knowing nothing. And, that’s okay.
