Do you ever use techniques to help you stay grounded and fully in the present? Or is your mind a whirlwind of worries about the future and misgivings of the past? Most of us, alas, fall into the latter category. We’re only human after all, and our memories are in many ways what shape our sense of identity. Without them, we’d be blank, but if we’re beholden to them and spend too much time in yesterday, we lose our grip on reality. Similarly, if, instead of savouring the smell of a rose, we’re too busy playing out possible scenarios of the future, we’ll end up worn down to the nerve and highly neurotic. Gay massage in London can do a great deal to still the mind and bring it back to now. It can also allow you to travel into the past in a more healthy way, by closing your eyes, picturing a moment or place of great happiness and peace, and going there temporarily for some meditative respite.
It’s no wonder that we struggle to be in the now. Despite the soaring popularity of books like the world-famous Power Of Now, life has a way of tugging us backwards and forwards. Some of us actually avoid being in the present because we’re scared it might mean confronting our feelings and fears. But being in the moment actually means that fear falls away. If you’d like to taste that feeling more often, then pick a few things that help you and do them regularly. Instead of walking to the Tube in the morning with a head full of static, focus on your breathing. Really tune into it. Pick a sense – perhaps touch is a good one to start with. Focus on what you can feel; that might be the breeze on your ears, fabric against your skin, the tread of your foot on the pavement. Again, tune into it to the exclusion of all other thought. Try it with sound. Listen. What can you hear? Itemise three of the sounds – a police siren, a child’s laughter, the birds. This focussing exercise need only last seconds and you can do it all over again if you like. Ideally, do it every fifteen minutes or so. You’ll be repeatedly putting yourself right in the here and, more importantly, the now. It’s a good place where you tune into the fact that the only reality is that very moment. Everything else – fear, anguish, stress – is illusion.
Gay massage can help you immeasurably in releasing your stranglehold on the past and the future. If you’re able to book at least once a fortnight, you’ll notice a day-to-day improvement that stays with you long after the treatment.
