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.
