04 Past, present and future

Description     More info

We will focus on the present and understand why we cannot focus on the past or the future. Both do not exist, your moment is here and now. Do not be disturbed. Join us in this exercise of attention in the now and abandoning the excess of past and future.

Normally we are used to live anchored in what happened to us or thinking about what we have to do

We want the weekend to come, summer or winter vacation and we worry about something we will do later, which gives rise to anxiety

We talk about past disappointments, we long for the old days

or we think about a conversation we had the day before with someone and that sometimes will result in depression

We forget to live in the now because we occupy our mind projecting forward and backward, overlooking what we live, feel and think in this very moment

That's why this episode is very important and I want you to take away from you all distractions to follow the exercise with me

that I have prepared

Once again turn off your cell phone, find a quiet place in the house and make yourself comfortable because we are coming start right now

Sit with your feet comfortably on the floor

but trying to keep your back straight even when resting

Pay attention to your breathing

Don't try to control it, do it at your own pace, relaxed, without rushing

Observe how the air passes into your body gently through your nose and how it fills your chest

Now let's draw an imaginary line in the mind, horizontally, going from one side to the other

Imagine that this line is your life and this moment, the present, is situated in the middle, right in the center of that line

Everything to the left of that point is your past, everything that happened to you as a child up to the moment you are listening to this now

Breathe calmly and go through that part of the line remembering everything you have lived

Now take an imaginary pair of scissors and cut that part of the line in sections

Visualize how you cut it into small pieces, let them fall into a box just below, each episode of your past life is falling, gently, like a paper that flies lightly

Pay attention to your breathing

They're falling into that box as you cut little by little

When you have cut everything, close the box, you feel wonderful, breathe calmly

Now go back to the line and take an imaginary eraser

Slowly erase in your imagination the right part of the line, that is to say, everything you think about

what will happen after this episode, what you think is going to happen tomorrow, what you have to do the day after tomorrow, what you think is going to happen the day after tomorrow, what you think is going to happen tomorrow, what you have to do the day after tomorrow, what you're looking to do next month, next month, next year, next year, and the next and the next

Erase all that part of the line that belongs to the future and when you have achieved it, take a good breath of air

and blow long and softly to remove all the remains of the eraser

Now there is only one point in your mind, it is this precise instant, the now

Put your hand on your chest and feel the beating of your heart

You are alive and that's a gift, the present is the only thing that exists, you have the decision of to feel good in this moment

Breathe consciously and place the point that has remained in your chest, in your heart, inside of you

Make it light up with the help of your imagination, little by little give it more and more brightness, increase the brightness

its size, that light makes you feel good, it reminds you that you exist and constantly have the ability to shine in the present

No matter what it was, no matter what it will be, now everything is perfect

Pay attention to your breathing

Expand that light from this point in your chest to the rest of your body and from there make it come out of you, to surround you, to cover you and accompany you always to remind you that you live in the present

Now is the only thing that exists, live it consciously

Practice this exercise as many times as you want and remember that from now on you will always carry with you that point of light in your heart to bring you to this feeling of well-being and fullness

That's all for today, thank you, Until the next episode
