Being Present in the Present Moment by Sarah Kottmann

When you hear ‘be present’ what does that mean?

It means being completely in your body, not thinking about the past or the future but being in the moment right now as you are. You can do this right now by closing your eyes, taking a few deep breaths in and out and feeling into your body right now, without thoughts or distractions. Being completely fully you at this moment.

Have you ever taken a moment just to be and not do?

Start with just 5 mins a day, and it has a significant shift in your body. It brings a greater form of self-awareness; helps you regulate your behaviour and emotional state.

Once you master being present in silences, you can master it in everyday life, which occurs when spiritual you, your intention, vision, body, mind, and environment are all in the here and now.

On estimate, most people spend as little as 3% of their time in the present, always thinking about the future or the past. So, the more you bring focus to the present and take time to be in the present, the more you will realise how much time you spend elsewhere.

Being present is an experience where you feel powerful yet at peace with who you are regardless of what others think or do. It helps you feel relaxed and at ease even when the unexpected happens as you connect to your vision and plans.

Being present has its challenges because we are so used to wanting to control everything. When we can’t control it, we feel stressed and unhappy. When you are present, you know and can take responsibility for the difference between what you can and can’t control, which makes you make wiser decisions.

Being present also means a greater understanding of who you are and what you want from life. It improves energy, focus and concentration. It helps you connect more with your life path and journey.

As CST (craniosacral therapist) practitioners, we are present in the moment with what is happening in the tissues. We access your inner wisdom to support the healing process. CST also has techniques, but at its core it is much more about being present with the body and tissues.
