When you have those few minutes of time, sink into them. Sink into the presence of being. Close your eyes. Concentrate on your breathing and when you can, clear your mind.
But if this is all new to you, let’s make it simpler. Just listen. Listen to your breath. Listen to the quiet of nature (if you’re outside) or the quiet of your body. If your mind wanders, walk with it. See where it wants to go. But keep it positive. If it starts to pull you into a worry or a problem, guide it back like the new puppy who wants to stray on the leash and smell something that you know will be yucky. Do you know what I mean?
Stay with it for a few minutes and then relax. Let go. Don’t try anymore. We don’t want you to overextend. Just feel the peaceful feeling that comes along with being present. Then when you find a little pocket of free time again, engage again into presence.
Habits are built by practice. Practice is succeeding in repetition. Repetition allows this part of you to grow, expand and make it easier every time to sink into the presence of being. With more clarity, faster and with more universal expansion into really listening to your inner most being.
Why would you want to do this? Because it’s getting in touch with your Knowing. Your inner wisdom that can help you, guide you and flex those intuitive parts of you that have amazing abilities that you weren’t even realizing were yours.
It takes time to build and flex these practices into working order. Go slowly. Baby steps. You can do this! Let me know how it feels after the first few sessions of presence. Were you comfortable? Uncomfortable? Anxious? Happy? Peaceful?
