Time traveling

Last Thursday I dreamt that I was able to travel to the past and to the future. A recurring dream and a topic I find fascinating. If I’d write fiction, it would definitely be one of the main theme.

In my dream, we could only time travel thanks to a specific person, from some specific places. When traveling to the future I had to blend in so that nobody notices I come from another era and when traveling to the past I was trying to make things better for the present. But the present didn’t exist for me, it only existed for other people. I was in their present.

Later that day, during a grounding exercice – with amazing coach Shefali Khokhar – where I had to focus on my fingertips, I connected the dots with my dream. During that exercice, my mind was constantly wandering to the past or the future. And it required extra effort to bring it back to the tips of my fingers, the present moment. It felt like a muscle I was training: focusing on the finger tips, thinking, noticing I am thinking, bringing the awareness back to the finger tips, thinking, noticing I am thinking, bringing the awareness back to the finger tips, focusing on the finger tips, thinking, noticing I am thinking, bringing the awareness back to the finger tips, thinking, noticing I am thinking, bringing the awareness back to the finger tips…

So like in my dream, I am always in the past or the future and not so much in the present cause it requires extra effort to be in the now. Most of the time I’m thinking of what I’m going to do or what I did. Right now, I’m thinking of the hike I’m going to do after I published this and in between I checked something on the internet because I was thinking of the next workshop I’d like to take. And YOU what are you thinking about while reading this blogpost?

On the bright side: we are time traveling all the time! And that thought satisfies the nerd in me!

Greetings from the Swiss Mountains!
