If there were only one thing to be in awe about regarding your trauma recovery it is the simple fact that you are actively recovering from trauma. You have survived. You have fought. You have seen the worst and are working steadfastly toward making peace with the dark in order to live in the light. The journey of trauma and trauma recovery are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Humans are astoundingly strong, resilient, and capable. If you’ve made it this far, you have defied incalculable odds, starting from the moment your awe-inspiring life began.

Trauma and all that includes does not have to be the only source of awe in your life. Part of the reason Jason Silva emphasizes the practice of awe is that awe can be found absolutely everywhere in absolutely everything. If we allow it to be, every single area of life both good and bad are tremendously awe-inspiring.

After experiencing some of the worst in our life, finding the good to focus on can be a less than awe-inspiring task. With a little bit of mindfulness and helpful reminders, we can start to see more of the awe, until we see awe everywhere.

Be Mindful Of Awe

What if the mundane daily tasks of your daily lives could be a near spiritual mind blowing experience? It sounds unlikely that brushing your teeth and putting on your deodorant could be an overwhelming experience of the sublime. The truth is that awe is hiding in every single moment we are alive, because the very fact that we are alive- survivors of trauma or not- is awe-inspiring.

Mindfulness is a practice which involves staying aware, paying attention, and noticing. By bringing mindfulness into our daily lives, we can be aware of how much awe there is in the world around us, pay attention to awe in all the small details, and notice awe where we least expected it.

Do What Strikes Awe In You

Everyone has a different set of preferences which inspires awe in their lives. Some find it in the movies, in music, in nature, in art, in their children, in sports, in travel, in food, in animals, and more. The best way to find what makes you feel most alive and aligned with life is to live and explore life. Try new activities, explore new facets of your favorite activities, and push yourself beyond your comfort zone, within reason. You’ll find that the awe of life is in being present for life and all that comes with living- something you are learning to do every day through recovery.
