Are you Tuning In or Tuning Out?

November 12, 2014

By Jacinta Hin

At any given moment we are tuning in or are tuning out. We are either moving forwards and towards to or backwards from consciousness. We face reality or are in denial, hold on or let go, embrace or turn away.

Take a moment and ask yourself: am I tuned in to whatever is asking for attention? Am I in sync with reality, dealing with the challenges on my path? Do I notice what is going on around me? Am I aware of what is going on inside of me? Am I truly listening to my friend’s need to be heard or rather focused on the stories in my head?

Today I saw a man looking for food in the garbage. I gave him a little money.  When he thanked me, I shook his hand and looked in his eyes. In the few moments we stood together we were one. In tuning in to another person I tuned in to myself.

Life is full of ups and downs, full of challenges and always evolving.  Are we ever a step ahead of what is next? Often we are taken by surprise.  A sudden change in our immediate surroundings that we did not see coming, a war escalating somewhere in the world that we had no idea was going on.  Even harder: responding in a timely manner to an intuitive call for change, a feeling that something is off kilter, pain breaking through our defenses, a part of our body-mind-soul system moving out of balance.

Tuning in is an art that requires practice and discipline. A regime of some sorts is required until we find (or feel) ourselves naturally connecting, being able more often than not to effortlessly tune in on demand.

In the end it’s a choice. Do you want to be aware at all times of what is going on inside and outside of you? Are you prepared to respond in a self-responsible manner? Are you always ready to look truth in the eye? Can you get out of your own way?

If any of the above resonates with you, take a moment again. Look around you. Look inside of you.

What can you tune into? What comes up asking to be heard, to be seen, to be felt?
