How to improve your focus in meditation – and life

What is your relationship with Focus? Have you been together a while? Or was Focus a first love, or are you and Focus perhaps not even talking?

If I were a life coach, I might suggest that you feed your focus and starve your distractions. Or I might say, “What you focus on is what you get more of.”

However, I am not a life coach. I am a healer who meditates and writes. In the spheres of wellbeing in which I move, focus is not an end goal. It’s an invitation to be fully present. All we can ever have is this present moment. If we witness this moment fully, it has the magical ability to open up like a fractal. Rather like the owl I met recently, we develop the ability to see, hear, sense and intuit in ever more detail.

The state of mindful focusing is a relaxed, alert way of being. We become aware and awake to what’s around us. Importantly, we don’t focus on what we want yet don’t have. We focus on what is. In so doing, we realise how very much is contained within the present moment. We can then make choices based on our expanded awareness, which can help us step into an optimum future.

What is your relationship with Focus? Are you perhaps close friends? Maybe, just maybe, Focus is your life-long guide and companion?

  1. How funny. I was just talking with a nephew about my struggle with being distracted. I need to develop better focus. Thanks for the encouragement.

    • Good luck with developing better focus, Judy. I hope you find that it’s an enjoyable thing to do.

  2. Focus is something I definitely need to work on and meditation helps. I’ve started using mala beads which have been super beneficial when it comes to focusing on my breaths and affirmations. Thank you for posting this!
