The Pleasure of Presence and The Simple Things

The Pleasure of Presence and The Simple Things

by Kyla Tustin, Soul Coaching Advanced Trainer

Many years back I realised my life had become TOO busy, practical, tactical and even spiritually pure. In stepping out of the world of investment banking and into full time Soul Coaching I had unconsciously placed conditions on myself that I had to give up many of the things and experiences which felt deliciously pleasurable.

Simple things like sipping a glass of red wine or morning latte and letting every taste fill my mouth with enjoyable delight. Going out to a nightclub and dancing to my favourite song with crazy freedom. In deciding to take my business and spirituality seriously, I had somehow decided I needed to cut out certain parts of my old life, and take my whole life seriously. It was as if I was being taken back to past life memories of living a monastic life without realising in this life I hadn’t chosen to be a nun or monk, I had chosen to be an “everyday human.” So I made a decision to bring it all back, plus more ..

I started to sit most mornings in full presence as the sun rose and allow it to gratefully wash through every cell in my being. I made time for laughing my heart wide open with friends as we giggled about silly things and created fun videos of us clowning around and dancing. .. and with all this my joy, energy, creativity, and huge gratitude for the simplest and SMALLEST of moments in life ignited.

I was then blessed to met a friend who shared that every day since he was a kid he journals his BID, Beauty In The Day. As he began to share some from his life I was reminded that as we slow down, smell the proverbial roses and enjoy the simple things, the pressure of life seems to simply fade away, and the bliss, passion and pleasure begins to ignite once more.

I now pride myself on living in a way which gives people permission to playfully, passionately, and pleasurably slow down and be themselves, no matter their occupation, the busyness of their business or the seriousness of life’s current challenges. It is truly in all of these moments when the simple pleasures are required the most and gift us with a higher vibe to be able to be able to share with the world and our work.

So I’m curious .. is there an area of your life that could do with a mini dosage of pleasure this month .. ? and what could be one thing you do to ignite, experience and activate even more pleasure and bliss into your life right? As you invite, schedule and action this into your days I’d also invite you to journal any beliefs, thoughts, feelings or ideas about WHO you SHOULD be which might be holding you back from living a pleasurable life and need to release.
