“Presence is an expression of beingness, a creator of intimacy. It has to do with being wise in your simplicity. From simple beingness, your true identity emerges.”
“Presence is being open, aware and in the now. Think back to a time when someone looked deeply into your eyes, acknowledging your beingness with their full presence. Remember how wonderful and intimate that felt. When you want to be intimate with someone, become equally open, aware, present.”
“When you bring your awareness into the present moment, everything else falls away. When you are fully present, your mind is not preparing responses to while you’re listening and feeling. Drop your evalutating reactive nature. Trust that your heart will have the appropriate response when the time comes.”
“Presence is simple. Presence is your natural state of being. When you are present, your heart feels open, charged, full.”
“When you are present whether alone or with another, you are loose and relaxed. Time may seem to slow down. You can expand awareness with ease, allowing yourself to truly see and be seen.”
“You let your feelings speak through your eyes, and the ‘feeling channel’ in you breathes freely, without expectation or judgement.”
