To help myself become more aware,
I asked the Universe to give me a gentle nudge to bring me back to the present whenever my mind has taken over and is “having a party at my expense.”
That gentle nudge happens by me bumping myself or dropping something, a loud noise, or a siren or an alarm going off.
All of these things are signals to me that my mind has taken off and to come back to the present.
When I receive these signals I stop immediately and ask myself
“What am I thinking?
What am I feeling?
Am I aware?”
And of course in the moment I do that, I am aware.
The very moment you ask yourself if you are aware, you are there.
You are aware.
