Mindfulness Power Quotes: How to Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is simple in theory, but transformational. Being mindful is the practice of being radically present. We often worried about the past or future.

Let’s talk about this sacred self-care practice in my Facebook Goddess Group for incredible women [link].


Mindfulness is Your Super Power

by Calm Coach Jamie of blackgirlsguidetocalm.com

One of the best gifts I received when starting my journey to calm three years ago was learning how to live in the present moment.

As someone who has almost always been future-minded and who has a tendency to worry about what’s to come, practicing mindfulness has allowed me to feel a sense of calm, even when things aren’t happening the way I want, and I worry less since I’m focused on what’s happening now.


It’s not easy to get to get to that point (and I still have my struggles from time to time), so here is a collection of quotes to remind you to stay present and be where you are:

  1. “Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” – Buddha
  2. “The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
  3. “Accept that living in the present moment, with your present desires, is the best, the highest thing you can do.” Deepak Chopra
  4. “Don’t live in the past (unless you want guilt) or worry about the future (unless you want fear), but stay focused on today (in case you want happiness).” – Steve Chandler
  5. Every moment is a golden one to those who have the visions to recognize it as such.” – Henry Miller
  6. “In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility.” – Victoria Moran

  8. “Wherever you are, be all there.” – Jim Elliot
  9. “You should enjoy the present moment because this is all you have. Create for tomorrow, but live in and for today.” – Robert Anthony
  10. “Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn’t more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it.” – Sylvia Boorstein
  11. “If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”  – Amit Ray
  12. “Being mindful means that we suspend judgment for a time, set aside our immediate goals for the future, and take in the present moment as it is rather than as we would like it to be.” – Mark Williams
  13. “Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” – James Baraz
  14. “There’s only one reason why you’re not experiencing bliss at this present moment, and it’s because you’re thinking or focusing on what you don’t have…But right now, you have everything you need to be in bliss.” – Anthony de Mello
  15. “We have only now, only this single eternal moment opening and unfolding before us, day and night.” – Jack Kornfield
  16. “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.” – Eckhart Tolle
  17. “Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” Maya Angelou
  18. “Nothing is more precious than the present moment. Fully alive, fully aware.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
  19. “In both your mess and your magic, you belong. Give yourself permission to be here — as you are, in this very moment.” – Danielle Doby
  20. “Gratitude is an essential part of being present. When you go deeply into the present, gratitude arises spontaneously.” – Eckhart Tolle
  21. “Stop rushing. Breathe. Be where you are. You’re where you’re supposed to be at this very moment. This present step and experience is necessary.” – Marchandangel

  23. “We have an abundance of moments — We just need to be present for them.” – Jessie Bohnenkamp
  24. “In all the chaos and hurry, do not forget to notice the beauty and miracle of this world. Slow down. Notice. Observe. Be aware. Allow presence and awe to come back into your life.” – Brendon Burchard
  25. “You will not find your bliss until you honor who you are right now.”  – Abiola Abrams

  27. “You’ll seldom regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment.

  28. “Give yourself permission to allow this moment to be exactly as it is, and allow yourself to be exactly as you are.” – Jon Kabat Zinn

  30. “Give your full attention to everything you do, and to every moment of your life. Being fully present is the way.” – Unknown
  31. “Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.” – Oprah
  32. “Stop, breathe, look around and embrace the miracle of each day, the miracle of life.”  Jeffrey A. White
  33. “Mindfulness is observing the beauty of every moment unfolding before us.” – Amit Ray
