Be present today. The holidays can be overwhelming and even discouraging at times. How will I have enough money to buy presents for my loved ones? What do I buy? When do I even start? I’ve heard it all – the holidays can uplift you and a lot of times overwhelm to the point of depressing you. I don’t throw that word “depression” around lightly at all. These stressful feelings that the holidays induce can overtake you with shadows. I get it and that’s why today’s affirmation is important and it’s something I want you to remember for the next month.

Shadows of darkness only live where there is no light. So how do we access or tune into the light when all these fearful and stressful emotions overtake us? We stay present. Yes, it’s that simple – you know that’s what I’m good at here: practical spirituality. Simplifying sh*t for you! You are in completely control of your thoughts and therefore your emotions. Don’t even try to think otherwise. That is where everything begins, in your mind. So by staying present and just existing in the moment, you illuminate the light already within you. When you are aware of the here and now your mind can’t dwell in the past or worry about the future. Darkness thrives off these emotions of stress and fear and worry. This is our egos way of isolating us. The ego knows that once you acknowledge the fact that these “worries” do not exist because we are already well-equipped with and for everything, it needs to defend itself. So it’s form of defense is isolating you – so it tosses you what it feels are realistic ideas and thoughts to make you panic. These are not realistic at all. They’re delusional. When you’re present, you are fearless. You can exist without expectation or feeling the need to control. You don’t feel the need to push or manipulate any person or situation. When you simply exist in the NOW, totally in the present, watch how all that you desire unfolds in your favor before your eyes. Today’s Daily Affirmation is:

I am living totally in the present.
