Shazam! Be Here Now
Transformation Magazine|December 2019
When you keep your consciousness on the present moment, the past can be a memory—but no longer your driving force.
Gregg Sanderson

Be here now...That’s the advice we’re always given when change is upon us, but what the heck does that really mean? It’s like, “Develop your personality,” an almost useless phrase by itself.

Often we dwell upon times in the past when we were happier (sadder), more (less) successful, or with (without) a particular person. Circumstances change, but our minds remain back there, and since that’s where our thoughts are, that’s what we create …again.

That right—same old, same old.

To “be here now” means to keep your consciousness on the present moment. Let the past be a memory, but no longer your driving force. Yet, it’s easy to lapse back into guilt or worry and distort your creative power.

When I find myself caught up in such situations, I have a simple method that works for me. I use SHAZAM. Here’s how:

Think of something from your past you feel bad about.

Look around you right now.

Quick! Find something to appreciate.

SHAZAM! You’re in the moment.

Think of something in the future you’re worried about.

Look around you right now.

Quick! Find something to appreciate.
