What is Mindfulness and How can it Help me?
Mindfulness practices use the observation of the bodily senses, mental patterns, and reactive patterns in the present moment, non-judgementally with childlike curiosity and openness. To heal we must first know where we are focusing our energy. Observation in this way is very powerful and can be quite liberating. It begins to release us from the crazy monkey mind.
Mindfulness is growing in momentum today as an intelligent and empowering way to deal with fluctuations of the mind.
Our mind is a powerful manifesting mechanism and we are writing the script of our life moment by moment by what we focus on. And deep rooted patterns grow from unconscious mental reinforcement.
Sadly the mind is often looping with thoughts of everything we don’t want. We’re often living in the past or fantasising about a future based on fearful projections.
The old reactive patterns and beliefs behind these automatic looping thoughts and the feelings and emotions they evoke may be sabotaging our relationship with life.
To overcome the bombardment of thought that invades our peace of mind. Mindfulness is based on ancient yogic and buddhist principles. It is simple, intelligent and easy to follow.
Step by step we can retrain our nervous system to embrace relaxation with inner calm. As we do so our life will begin to reflect a peaceful and more coherent sense of flow.
There are many benefits to mindfulness including:
- enhanced physical mental and emotional relaxation
- Improved communication skills
- A calmer outlook on life
- Improved focus and concentration skills
- Learning how to deal with overwhelm, anxiety and mild depression
- Greater compassion and loving kindness toward ourself and others
- Deep Realisations about the True Self

We are not our Thoughts
We quickly come to realise we are not our thoughts. What a relief…As such we learn not to identify with arising thoughts or feelings. We see like the clouds in the sky – “they too will pass.”
Awareness is the Key
As we become aware of thoughts, feelings, body and the changing mental-emotional landscape… we realise we are not any of those things. We can observe them, and as the witness we are not limited. As the silent witness or perceiver we are released from identification with our thoughts.
The Body Temple
We begin to understand this perception box or body temple (the body & senses) is our way of experiencing the physical world. It is not who we truly are, so why pin our full identification on the body.
The Great Maya – Illusion
The yogis say phenomenal life is but a dream or illusion – the Great Maya. The famous playwright Shakespeare also said ‘All the world is a Stage’.
This is where we come to realise who we truly are, beyond the limited physical individual, subject, body, object..
Going deeper we may begin to ask…
“What or Who is observing the senses?”
The obvious answer is, “I am.”
This begs the age old and deepest question, “Who am I?… (if not these 5 senses in this body)“.
Going beyond mindfulness through self-inquiry we begin to see that we are not limited to this physical bodily experience we call me or I.
We are that through which we are looking or perceiving, awareness itself.
Deconstruction of the Body-Mind Identification
As the separate individual body-mind is deconstructed, we come to realise we are far more magnificent that ever imagined.
We are the all pervading one presence that is every and always peaceful. We are the sky behind the clouds.. The screen behind the Movie.. The calm behind the storm.. The One Presence that is I am…
