BLISS – What is it?
Bliss is the time of day when the world is silent, very few people are awake, there are no cars going up and down my road. Its just me curled up on my sofa with a giant mug of coffee listening to the world!
It is 3am in the UK and I’m wide awake! Most people would be tossing and turning in their beds, me
I’m enjoying my Bliss!
In today’s world most of us chase our tale, with very little time to do the things that we enjoy, let alone to be sit still. Yes we will read, yes we will watch television and yes we will see friends, however we need to allow ourselves to be still.
You may be sat there thinking she nuts I’m not getting up at 3am to be still! I use to fight it, I use to toss, turn, tut, do housework anything that didn’t allow me to think. It took me along time to accept that for my mind needed to be still. Now I find that it takes a shorter amount of time and happens with far less frequency. It is the perfect time for me! Others are manage to do this on their train journey to work, in their lunch hour. It is all about finding the right time for you.
I am no expert in Mindfulness! I truly believe that to process I need time with limited chances of disruption. My family are happy dreaming, unless its an emergency my phone will not be going off, I am at peace with my thoughts.
Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.
My Bliss practice will be at its most basic form of mindfulness, however it allows me the time to process anything that I’ve not had time to deal with in the day. I truly believe that we all need some time no matter how tiny to be in our thoughts, to be still without distraction.
