Truly connecting, whether in person, over the phone, through the written word or smoke signals, it is key to be present in the moment or you will miss something and it will probably be important. Teleconnecting Skill #3 is to remind us that all the most important events are happening NOW and if we are not in the NOW, we will miss out on innumerable hints, facts, flirts and opportunities.

Are you time traveling?

If you are not in the 'Present' you are likely time traveling. While we must all take jaunts to the past, and the future, to reflect and dream, all of what is life is made up in the NOW. Being Present is the only way to fill your now's completely as they pass. ‘NOW, and it's gone, NOW, and it's History.' Wayne Dyer
Being aware of when we are time traveling is half the battle. Chances are, your eyes will shift left when thinking about something past, and right when thinking about something future. There's always lateral travel, which is, wondering what someone is doing right now, for instance. Still, when on any of these roads, the Present is passing you by.

How to be present

When you are interacting with a person over the phone or in an airplane seat or in the office or in the gym, being present in the moment with them is the most effective way to make a connection. In the present, you will notice the shift of an eyebrow, the tale-telling 'blush', the tone and inflection of a voice. By matching energy with those you wish to connect with, your chances are increased 100%. If you have asked for and been granted the time, a connection is nearly assured.

The 'present' is also the 'gift'

We look briefly to the past for snippets of information that will aid us in the Present. We must dream of the future so we can move continually in the direction of our most dominant thoughts. However, the Present moments as they pass, NOW after NOW, require that you be in them fully. It is probably no accident that the word Present and 'gift' are interchangeable at times.
