Good question, John Sloan.
How does one "emanate presence?"
It may be different for everyone.
In my experience, emanating presence is nothing I can do. The Presence is always present but mostly hidden from my awareness by my neurology.
Why neurology? In my case, as an HSP with misophonia and Asperger's the underlying anxiety is a strong influence.
It's only theory, as I've rarely emanated presence, but when it happened it was by relaxing into challenging situations with acceptance and surrender. I let go of controlling and having to have things a certain way. Then something besides my normal waking consciousness took over, a deep trust and confidence. Looking back, I recognize a tangible shift, an expansion and sense of bliss.
What are your feelings about it, John?
Sounds a lot like the holy spirit. I am simply a vessel for it to flow through. It works best when I allow it to flow freely like you days without anxiety or thoughts. Like a stream that just flows. The stream doesn't have to think about what direction to flow towards, it just simply moves along and what will be, will be.
Yes, the holy spirit is one way to relate to it. I've experimented with various tools 🛠 to help me 'get there', to master the challenges of the underlying anxiety and overthinking of an Asperger's brain. Today what was effective was sinking into heartwaves of gratitude, breathing them in and out (even though nothing is outside). The waves are creation's gratitude for its own existence.
