A Sense of Aliveness


“When you are wholehearted about something, however, when you are where you want to be and are participating fully in the moment you are in – sometimes enthusiastic, sometimes mellow – you will experience a new sense of aliveness.” 

Erich Schiffmann

Often it feels difficult for us to want to be where we actually are. We are rarely wholehearted or unconflicted about anything, and this constricts our energy. Parts of us shut down and the amount of life energy we allow to flow through us is diminished. We feel torn, separated, ambivalent, not unified. This does not feel good.

If we open more to being who we are and where we are, we reduce the inner conflict, and with that the constriction in the energy flow. Because of this we will feel different, notice more energy, and that in and of itself might bring us joy in the present. We will naturally feel more alive, which again inspires our openness and curiosity about the present moment.

This can come with intention and practice.

This year I’ll focus here on how to do that. 🙂

For now I wish you a lot of positive energy this week,

  1. Very true. I lost my Dad just over a year ago and he saw the positive in the here and now right til the very end even when his body had given up. He was a true inspiration. It is not about ignoring negative events or repressing your feelings but being grateful for what is good I think. Thanks for sharing. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to have a look? Today’s post relates to seeing the positive. Have a good day, Sam 🙂
