Eckhart Tolle talks about the "Power of Now". We spend so much time thinking about the past or the future, that we miss the power of the present moment. Personal empowerment comes through stopping our thinking and spending time in the present moment.
I regularly train managers in the art of active listening - being present, attending, checking for understanding and exploring shared meaning. However, in my close relationships, I often slip up and forget to tap into this active listening skill. This affirmation will remind me to tune in more often.

Everyone we meet brings added richness to our lives if we attend to them and learn to listen.
Eckhart Tolle teaches us that consciousness is the source of power, creativity and positive change in our lives. This affirmation reminds me to be more in the power of the present - the NOW - so that I can tap into my consciousness.
