The Presence of our Present
Jennifer Hoffman

One of my favorite quotes (from the actor Woody Allen) is “Eighty
percent of success is showing up.” Each lifetime is a way in which we
show up, ready to complete a task begun long ago, to work through any
karmic cycles which have the power to ensure our return for completion
and transformation. While we may wonder why we do it, we volunteer to
return because we know that every energetic opening we leave behind
must be closed through our own healing. No one can heal, transmute or
complete energies that we have left incomplete. And to do this we must
be present in many ways, physically, emotionally, energetically,
experientially and spiritually. Each of those levels of presence is
important and without even one of them, we are not fully present in
our life, our issues or our healing.

In each lifetime we are physically present for the work that we have
to do and we accomplish this through our physical body which the
earthly home we offer spirit. We may like or dislike our body, see it
as a blessing or a challenge, and even wonder what accident of nature
created the body we have but it is our vehicle for learning, growth,
healing and transformation. So while our body is present on earth, it
occupies physical space, when we do not like our body or find fault
with it, we are not present within it. And this is one way that we
under-utilize our presence.

Our emotional presence is a complicated jumble of a wide array of
feelings from every lifetime we have ever experienced that we are
consciously and unconsciously aware of, mostly the latter. What we
know of our emotional presence is that we are always feeling some kind
of emotional energy that we respond to according to how it affects us.
What we do not know about this presence is the truth of how we are to
use our emotional presence in a lifetime and without this knowledge we
allow this aspect to become our most important presence and we live
through it alone, creating an imbalance of emotional energy in our
lives that leads to fear, pain and frustration. We need our emotional
presence to re-create the energy of what we have come to heal as this
is the energy of our karma.

Our energetic presence is the most under-utilized because allow our
emotional presence to dominate it. Emotions are one aspect of our
energy but there are many others. From a human perspective, our
energetic presence is actually the most important because it
determines how everything in our life unfolds and what we attract.
When we are present in the emotional energy of an experience and do
not incorporate the other aspects of our presence we are present in
the emotions and nothing else. The emotions dominate to the exclusion
of the higher vibrations of resolution and healing.

What is an experiential presence? It is how we participate in each
experience. The people and situations we choose to engage with, the
actions we take, choices we make, words we speak and energies we
express and feel all relate to how we have chosen to experience a
situation. And through our experience we can choose to raise our
vibrations so we can experience life in a different way. But the
experience itself has no value to us other than as a vehicle for
learning. When we allow the experience to become the critical element
we become present in the experience and all of its energies. Growth
and learning occur when we remember the experience is a way to awaken
other elements of our presence.

We also have the gift and choice of our spiritual presence. It is our
gift because it is always with us, whether or not we acknowledge it
and our choice because we choose to partner with it and receive
guidance and wisdom instead of walking our earthly journey alone.
Although it exists in the background, all of our other aspects of
presence have no purpose without it for our lifetime is spiritual in
purpose and context. Our many lifetimes exist on a spiritual
continuum, in which our human incarnations are the practice field for
our spiritual understanding. By bringing our spiritual understanding
into all other aspects of our presence, we have wisdom to choose from
our highest aspects and can then choose the highest vibrations of any

We can be present, occupying a certain place in time and all of the
other aspects of our presence are somewhere else. Our presence is
where we are putting our energy. Think for a moment of where you are
in this moment, are you present in what you are doing or thinking
about something else. When you think about yourself, are you present
in your thoughts or are you thinking about someone’s life, opinions or
actions? Are you here in this moment or are you thinking about other
things you must do or something that has happened in the past? So much
of our presence is in the past, distracted, or focused somewhere else
and that is why we have problems manifesting what we want—because we
are not fully present in the energy of our manifestation.

This brings us back to the issue of wholeness, where we are fully
connected to ourselves which also means we are fully connect to
Source. When all of our aspects of presence are fully present, each
contributes to the purpose of our life journey, which is to bring us
back to wholeness within ourselves so we can be reconnected to Source.

This is just another aspect of our ascension journey and our
willingness to achieve mastery. The journey to connection is about
wholeness, within and without, so every aspect of our reality is
filled with our presence and we are present within it. When we see our
spiritual and material presence as being separate, we are not present
spiritually in our physical form so we are missing an important
component of our journey. Without wholeness we are simply taking space
on the earth plane, engaging in experiences that do not result in
growth and transformation. With the conscious joining of the spiritual
and material, where all of our aspects are working in harmony we are
gifting ourselves with spiritual understanding to make this a journey
of growth and transformation instead of blindly wandering through life
wondering whether we will ever find peace and fulfillment.
