Bringing the Magic Back Into Our Moments

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today, I'm going to talk about

creating magic moments in our lives.

So you might find yourself already

reflecting on what have been

magic moments in your life as

soon as I bring this topic up.

What that means to you, a magic moment.

Or maybe you think of a big

achievement or a milestone, like

a wedding or the birth of a child.

But you might also be

remembering very simple moments.

Perhaps when you were alone in nature,

surfing a wave, riding a bike, dancing,

or maybe connecting with a loved one.

Whatever was happening, it's in

moments like these that we often feel

incredibly alive, connected, and whole.

We're fully present, absorbed

in our experience, and nothing

else matters in those moments.

A lot of the time, these moments

happen spontaneously, but we can also

choose to create them deliberately too.

If we mindfully tune into our

senses in any given moment, we

open up to a whole universe of

rich detail, beauty and mystery.

I'll never forget the first time I

practiced mindful walking in my own

front yard early one summer morning.

I ambled slowly through the yard,

looking at all the trees and the

garden and just taking it all in.

And as the sun's light started to light

up everything around me, I couldn't

believe how vibrant my experience became.

I was filled with a sense of

reverence, The more I slowed down,

the more time seemed to do the same.

I noticed subtleties I'd never

paid attention to before.

The caress of warm sunlight on my

skin, the soft touch of my hair

on my shoulders, the haunting caws

of the first morning birds, the

rustling of the leaves in the trees.

I felt so intimate with

the world around me.

It was such a familiar place,

but it had been transformed

into this magical new landscape.

So my invitation for this week is this.

See if you can make a little bit of

time to take a mindful pause every now

and then, and tune into your senses.

You might like to do this by watching

a sunset, taking a mindful walk,

having a cup of tea or coffee outdoors.

Whether it's cold or warm, raining,

or sunny, just paying attention to the

constellation of sights and sounds and

smells and sensations all around you.

Just be fully present in that moment,

focusing on the unfolding dance of

that sensory moment, knowing the,

noticing the nuances of the sensation.

Opening yourself and kind of

letting yourself just be captivated

by the mystery and the magic of

the world that's unfolding both

within you and all around you.

So I wish you a wonderful

practice with this.

And as always, thank you for your

practice and your presence here.

And let's settle in now

for today's meditation.
