What is it to ‘take’ someone out of the moment?
As a Oneness Trainer I facilitated an event which takes people into higher states of consciousness. After the event was over a lady was sharing with me how she was seeing beautiful colors. I could feel her sharing from such a beautiful state of being.
As I was being with her I remembered something she was involved in last year (a family member married). I asked her how that wedding went. She replied saying good and immediately went back to talking about the beautiful colors she was seeing.
In that moment…I recognized what I had done! I had ‘taken’ her out of the moment she was feeling. That awareness gave me a huge gift for me as a trainer. I can use that learning in every part of my life. The learning was presented to me in a gentle and kind way….all of which I am so grateful for.
Have you ever done something like that?
Here are some examples of what that may look like in everyday life….
- Take someone out of whatever they are feeling…regardless if they are feeling happy or sad. You may try to change the subject and try to get them to feel something else.
- Your partner may want to become intimate with you and you change the subject or bring up other problems to take their mind away from the moment;
- Whenever you’re in a position of confrontation…you ‘snap out of it’ and talk about something else.
If you look around throughout your week, you may find you do that to others…along with doing it to yourself. It can be pretty easy to do. I know I’ve experienced it. Being aware of what that looks like…feels like…sounds like leads you to a place of staying in the present moment.
May you find what works for you…find your own truth…and you will always be guided to feel at peace inside.
