Know Your Presence

by Sharon Marquart

What the heck does “know your presence” mean? Good question! Before I answer, I want to remind you that you are a multidimensional being. You experience life on several dimensions: the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual planes of existence.

The level you are most familiar with is the physical plane. Knowing Your Presence on this level relates to self-esteem. Esteem is defined as “value or worth.” Self-esteem then, relates to the value or worth you give yourself. If you have low self-esteem you are devaluing your worth. You are a container with no bottom. When Spirit pours insight and inspiration on you or opens the door of opportunity for you, you may feel unworthy to receive. You may be incapable of accepting the information or the opportunity given you. Some say our human experience is about giving hands and feet to Spirit. The “Spirit of Life’ is the invisible force that gives us life. Knowing Your Presence requires that you have a level of self-esteem that creates the container to be filled and overflowing with the energy of Spirit. If you are on a spiritual journey, you need to first Know Your Presence on the physical level by raising the level of your self-esteem. Begin to value that you are here, in person, and have a purpose to fulfill.

The next plane is the mental/emotional plane. I put them together because what you think triggers what you feel and what you feel triggers your thoughts. It is impossible to separate them. Knowing Your Presence on this level relates to knowing what you are thinking and feeling. Your thoughts become things. Your thoughts are energized with your feelings as they put your emotions into motion. Therefore it is very important you know what you are thinking and what you are feeling. It is important to know that your thoughts and feelings make a difference in how you experience your world. The next time you find yourself experiencing a “bad” day, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings. Do the same when you find yourself experiencing a “good” day. How is your thinking different? How are your feelings different? When a day begins to turn “bad,” put up the red flag to stop the bad thoughts and feelings and change the day by remembering good feelings and thinking good thoughts. It may take some effort at first but soon, you will become a pro at shifting gears.

The third dimension of life is the Spiritual dimension. This is the dimension that infuses the Spirit of life itself into all of us. Knowing Your Presence on this level relates to knowing that you are connected to a higher energy of Self, with a capital “S.” This is the world within you. You may refer to it as your soul, your essence, your heart. You connect to the world within by making time in your day to close your eyes, be quiet and listen for the “still small voice within.”
