If you haven’t read my previous article on being centered, take a brief look now and familiarize yourself with the concept of centering.
The wonderful thing about it is that it doesn’t require any special skills to implement. You can adopt the ideas and put them into practice immediately.
The concept also doesn’t discriminate your background, your faith, your religion etc, it’s an idea that is very simple and is there for anyone to try regardless of your chosen beliefs.
Remember, the trick is not to force yourself into feeling centered, but to un-stick yourself from extremes and find your way naturally to that place of equilibrium. Try it and here’s what you will find:
1. Emotional Roller-coaster
You’ll no longer experience the peaks and troughs of emotions. The extreme highs and lows will slowly start to fade away and you’ll start to experience more balance in your life.
People will start to respond to you differently. You’ve probably seen glimpses of it already during those times when you’ve felt on top of the world, people pick up on it and treat you accordingly.
If you dump on yourself, people tend to treat you in the same way. If you’re self assured, likewise. But if you’re centered, people understand they cannot rock your boat and therefore do not try. They actually start to feel more at ease when around you.
When you take a centered approach to your tasks you’ll discover that you can remain focused for much longer periods and when you do, you’ll become much more efficient.
You’ll begin to enjoy your activities more. My fiancée recently was telling me how her grandfather said to her. When you eat, eat. When you brush, brush. When you shower, shower. Very simple and so poignant. Being centered in each task will enable you to savour it properly.
As you practice this amazing art you’ll naturally become more mindful of the things you do. You won’t have to force it, you will arrive at that place naturally.
Any areas of your life where you have felt unsatisfied you will start to feel a greater sense of fulfillment. You will stop yearning for things and they will begin to happen much more easily.
As you get more accustomed to remaining centered you begin to drop your need for control on outcomes and when you do, you begin to feel so much more relaxed and and ease. As a result, physically you will be in a much better condition and your quality of sleep will improve. You will also notice that you begin to dream more vividly.
Overall, you will begin to feel a sense of greater harmony in your life. Things will begin to come together like you never imagined. Serendipity will become more common.
Generally speaking, in most area’s of my life, I find it easy to remain centered. The areas where I do not, life often gives me a kick up the ass to remind me become centered again. It’s not random, it happens every time, without fail, just like the accuracy of simple mathematical equation.
Try it for yourself and see, as you have absolutely nothing to lose.
