Recently, I realized that the best way to live a happier and more peaceful life is by practicing to place your attention on the present moment. It’s difficult to focus on the present moment because the modern world has conditioned your mind to constantly think about the past and the future. However, if you manage to regularly focus all your attention on the present moment, you’ll be untouchable because of the following reasons.
- You’ll Live a Stress-Free Life
When you continuously lose yourself in the present moment you’ll be stress-free. You’ll worry about nothing since most of your worries exist in the future. You’ll stop being concerned with what might or might not happen, and you’ll mostly focus on how you can use the present moment to make things work in your favor. Besides this, you’ll be less stressed because you’ll stop reviewing stressful events that occurred in the past.
- You’ll Make Good Decisions
Focusing on the present moment clears your mind by eliminating stress hence enabling you to make good decisions. Besides this, being in the present moment enables you to make the right decisions because you’ll see things clearly.
However, there’s a high chance of making poor decisions if you are so focused on the past or the future because you’ll make decisions based on a reality that doesn’t exist. The only reality that exists is the present moment, and therefore, making decisions based on a true reality ensures that you make the right decisions.
- You’ll be More Connected to The Infinite Intelligence
Being present most of the time enables you to connect with Infinite Intelligence/God/The Creator because this intelligence lives in the present moment. The Creator has never lived in the past or the future. The past and the future only exist in your mind.
Anyway, you’ll receive guidance when you establish this connection with Infinite Intelligence, and you’ll also gain access to all the information you need for you to you to fulfill your destiny.
- You’ll Awaken Your Intuition
Intuition is the ability to know what you are supposed to do without reasoning. Or as Mateo Sol puts it, “It’s the Soul’s GPS which can help us discover our life purpose, make wise decisions, and lead fulfilling lives.”
According to Penney Peirce, a gifted intuitive counselor, you awaken your intuition when you regularly focus your attention on the present moment. Penny Pierce believes that being in the present moment enables your body, mind, and spirit to merge into one hence resulting in direct knowledge about something without reasoning.
- All Opportunities exist in the Present Moment
Opportunities often present themselves to us every day, but we can’t see them because our minds are either in the past or future. For us to see these opportunities, we must be in the present moment because the mind is alert to everything that happens when our attention is in the now.
Living in the present is extremely beneficial because it provides you with the above advantages, and many others that you can mention in the comment box below. However, as usual, any skill that gives you several advantages in life is difficult to master, and for this reason, living in the moment is also difficult. The good thing is that with discipline and persistence, you can master anything, and therefore, you can also master the art of living in the moment.

5 Important Facts About Intuition You Must Know Right Now ( Intuition Part 3)
Intuition or direct knowing, is present in all of us because we are all connected to Infinite Intelligence. I’m fascinated with intuition because it’s responsible for the world’s greatest discoveries. Besides this, it also guides people and helps them align with their life purpose.
My interest in intuition has enabled me to realize the following significant facts about intuition which I’m so happy to share with you.
1.You Can Tell the Difference Between the Ego Voice and Intuitive Voice
The ego voice is always concerned with the past, and it makes decisions based on fear. It often makes you anxious and insecure because it’s always worried that something terrible might happen. Furthermore, it regularly advises you to go after material things and makes you fall out of alignment with your life purpose.
On the other hand, your intuitive voice usually advises you to follow your life purpose and
2. Spending Time in Nature Awakens Your Intuition
Nature provides a calming experience because it relaxes the mind. Moreover, the sounds of birds, crickets, and other animals quiet the mind.
We only connect to our intuition when the mind is relaxed or quiet because it’s easier to hear the intuitive voice when the mind is in such states.
3.The World’s Major Religions Believe in Intuition
Christians, Buddhists, and Muslims believe in Intuition.
Christians and Muslims believe intuition is a gift from God. However, Christians believe the Holy Spirit enhances intuition while Muslims believe that strong faith and a pure heart strengthen the intuition. On the other hand, Buddhists think intuition is a part of faith, and spiritual practices such as meditation and mindfulness awaken our intuitive abilities
4.Most Experts Rely on Intuition
Most businesspeople, managers, and investors rely on intuition when making quick decisions. Moreover, intuition helps them pinpoint the correct information from large amounts of data.
However, studies show that only the intuition of highly trained and experienced professionals is right because these folks have been exposed to large pieces of information, related to their fields of study, for an extended period.
5.There Are Several Ways to Awaken Your Intuition
Most spiritual leaders believe meditation, mindfulness, yoga, and prayer awaken your intuitive powers. They claim that spending time in nature and being in the present moment awaken the intuition. Also, some believe that trusting life or aligning with its flow awaken the intuition. All these methods are reliable because they calm the mind hence allowing you to hear your intuitive voice.
My interest in the topic of intuition has enlightened me about the above facts about intuition. For this reason, I will continue studying intuition and thinking about it so that I discover more enlightening facts about this inner voice. Hope you’ll be available when I release the next awesome post on intuition

Does Polytheism Make More Sense?
Monotheism is the belief in one God, while polytheism is the belief in many gods.
After studying ancient cultures for a while, I realized that most of them were polytheistic. Most ancient African, European, American and Asian cultures believed in many gods. They believed in the gods of wisdom, gods of wealth, gods of nature, gods of warriors and so on. Ancient folks prayed to particular gods for particular things. If an individual wanted wealth, he would pray to the god of wealth, and if another wanted luck, he would pray to the gods of luck and good fortune.
Besides this, some ancient cultures worshipped many gods but believed in a supreme God that dominated other gods. For example, the Greeks believed Zeus was the King of Gods, but they also worshipped the other gods.
Furthermore, while studying ancient cultures, it dawned on me that polytheism is older than monotheism. Sarah Johnson agrees with me for she wrote, “polytheism is always the older or ‘primary’ and monotheism the newer or secondary type of religion (Sarah Johnson, Ancient Religions).” It, therefore, appears that monotheists borrowed the concept of God from polytheists.
However, most people believe polytheism is a form of paganism. Little do they know that the concept of one god appeared after people unified polytheistic gods into one Supreme-being. Some scholars even argue that monotheism began when Akhenaten, an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, forced Egyptians to practice monotheism.
I’m sometimes tempted to believe polytheism makes more logical sense than monotheism. Sometimes I wonder if God can hear all our prayers, answer them, and guide all of us at the same time. Maybe it’s true, as polytheists believe, that God rules over other gods that assist him in guiding us, and listening to our prayers. It also makes sense that if one wants wisdom and wealth, she should pray to the god of wisdom and wealth, instead of praying to the King of Gods/God.
Perhaps God’s only duty is to provide life to the universe while other gods’ duties are to take care of us and guide us. Maybe we even have guardian gods that help us deal with life and fulfill our destinies.
Lastly, is it sensible to argue that all ancient cultures believed in many gods because they were primitive, or because it was logical to believe in many gods? Moreover, why did various ancient cultures which never met, coincidentally believe in many gods? Maybe it’s because these gods existed.
Anyway, the idea of many gods should be taken seriously because it might be the secret to freedom and understanding the higher realms. Maybe monotheism was created because it prevents people from realizing the true nature of the higher realms and it’s easier to control people who believe in one God.
