The Superpower of Presence
We move through life reacting to the world around us through a complex system of predictions and assumptions within us. Yet, more often than not, we put the cause of our experience on forces outside of us: other people, other situations, heck, even the weather. In reality, how we’re experiencing life is being influenced by our embodied emotional states. Much of this influence is happening below our conscious awareness. We’ve been navigating the world disconnected from ourselves, ignoring the internal signs and signals that have been desperately trying to help move us in a new direction.
Yet, within all of us is an untapped superpower: Presence.
As a personal growth coach, I work with presence and the positive impact it has on our lives. It’s a fundamental (and necessary) part of the personal growth process. Vulnerabold Sessions: The Superpower of Presence is an ‘active introduction’ to making presence a present part of your life. If you’re open to exploring yourself, and doing so in the company of others, this program is my ‘present’ to you for being Vulnerabold.
What is presence in the context of personal growth?
Presence is an awareness of what is here, now. It is what allows us to notice what is mentally, physically, and emotionally happening within us in relation to what is happening around us. Presence is what allows us to become the confident leader of ourselves.
What makes presence important?
Presence provides us deeper understanding of ourselves and our interactions with the world. It allows us to:
- Notice how and where the body, the mind, and emotions react to specific situations
- Be supportive of ourselves and others in moments of discomfort
- Give attention to the parts of us that are in pain
- Nurture a more intimate connection with oneself and the world around you
What makes presence a superpower?
Presence is a superpower because it enables us to:
- Gain an intimate awareness of our current physical, emotional and mental state
- Cultivate choice in how we respond to and interact with ourselves, others, and the world around us
- Bring our subconscious felt-sense experience into conscious awareness
- Engage life authentically by no longer ignoring and suppressing what we sense, feel, and intuit
