WHAT IS CONSCIOUSNESS?

Consciousness goes by many names! Here are a few:

  • Awareness
  • Your own personal perspective of reality
  • Awakeness
  • Attention
  • Knowingness
  • Focus
  • Energy state
  • Quality of experience
  • Being in the moment
  • Your real true self
  • The underlying nature of reality

Consciousness is like the piece of paper that our reality is printed on. Usually, we only care about the words. But without the paper – we wouldn’t – and couldn’t – have any words at all. This is what consciousness is like. It is the underlying nature of our reality.

WHY RAISE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS?

Why should you raise your consciousness? To feel more alive. To be more alive! Your regular sensory abilities will be extended! Your overall life experience will be deeper and larger. You will be able to:

  • Take in more information
  • Experience more of your environment
  • Experience a higher quality of senses
  • Smell more deeply
  • Taste more deeply
  • See more clearly
  • Hear more
  • Feel more of your body
  • Be calmer
  • Feel a wider range of emotions

3 WAYS TO RAISE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS:

Here are 3 tried-and-true methods for up-leveling your conscious state!

1. MINDFULNESS

A great technique for raising your consciousness is Mindfulness!

In this exercise, you go about your regular business very attentive to each specific thing you are doing.

A popular method is to light a candle. Pay attention to the flame. Stay focused on the flame. When your mind wanders (and it will!) gently guide it back to the flame. Do this for 5 minutes. This will seriously up-level your consciousness!

It doesn’t have to be a flame. Any similar thing – of your choice – will do the trick!

With mindfulness, you are training your consciousness to do what you say. And that is to stay focused on something.

Being able to choose where your consciousness goes up-levels you. Why? Because the world is constantly bombarding you with things to distract your attention! This pulls your conscious into many small pieces.

But focusing your energy on one task intentionally allows you to gather a greater amount of consciousness in one place.

The result? More life! 🙂

2. BE IN THE NOW

Being in the Now will majorly up-level your consciousness.

Here’s how it works:

We are constantly living in the future or the past, mentally.

The Now is what we actually have. And the Now is what we are burning up when we are focusing on these other places.

Right Now is always here. And it is a very powerful place.

Let’s try it now. Fully enter your life. BE IN THE NOW. Right now. Go!

~ You are in the now ~

Well done. If you are ever missing a part of yourself, look for it in the Now.

3. MEDITATION

Mediation is the third tactic for expanding your consciousness. And it is amazing.

I like to say – Meditation allows you to calm the water bowl of your mind. Here’s the analogy:

Usually, the waves of our mind are fast and high. In this case, not much can stay in the water bowl. But if we slow down, the waves are lower, and we can fit more into the water bowl (without water splashing out).

Meditation helps you to calm things down. When things are calmer you can have more water in the bowl. And by water, I mean… consciousness! 🙂

To get started, I made you a 1-minute meditation.

DISCOVER WHAT WORKS FOR YOU!

I hope these ideas inspire you! But the real inspiration comes from within.

So I encourage you to go figure out what consciousness-manipulation methods work FOR YOU. That’s right. I’m giving you permission to purposefully move your consciousness!

I promise some things will come easily + naturally to you. Here are some suggestions:

  • Move your consciousness down over your body
  • Go into nature and expand it out from your body
  • Become conscious of your internal world
  • Go to a beautiful place and become hyper-conscious of it
  • Attend to your emotional world
  • Become conscious of the everyday physical world around you
  • Try a guided meditation

I am so excited for you!
