Claiming Your Power in the Here and Now:

An Inner Journey to the Present Moment

by Johanna Kern

Here we are. We are thinking, feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, breathing and…what else are we doing?


We know either in relation to the above, or we know because we have inherited some of the knowing with our genes. Our ancestors learned things that we don’t have to learn. We already know these things because of evolution.

It used to be that human evolution was thought of as a means to populate the planet and ensure that, as the human race, we survive. Now evolution more and more is referred to as the expansion of consciousness — a way to experience ourselves on different, more advanced levels than merely through our five senses.

Whether we are aware of it or not, we continue to develop — for the purpose of the ongoing expansion of what we truly are: consciousness.

As the consciousness that we are, we can know ourselves only via experiencing. And experiencing differs from acquiring knowledge through the mind.

Experiencing can happen only in the “here and now.”

Staying in the “here and now” is not always easy. When we are required to complete our daily chores or need to accomplish our goals, we tend to think about the future. When we are dealing with our emotional pain or subconscious fears, we dwell in the past.

To silence our inner fears and see clearly what’s in front of us, we need to become mindful of the present moment, unclutter our mind, and reconnect with our true, powerful selves.

One of the best ways to become mindful is to practice daily meditation. And it doesn’t have to be long or require a lot of effort.

The following is a brief Inner Journey to the Present Moment that can be practiced at any time.

Find a comfortable position where you can stay uninterrupted. Take a few deep breaths. Close your eyes, and imagine the following:

• You are sitting on a hill. That hill exists nowhere in particular, only in your mind, and yet it feels very real. From the hill, you can see planet Earth in front of you. You feel longing in your heart, knowing that you are looking at your beautiful home.

• You place your palms on your chest, feeling the rhythm of your heart. And then you decide to send a message to your loved ones, back on the planet. You decide to make your heart the Launching Point for your message. With all your love, you send to the planet these words: “I care about you.”

• You see the words flowing toward the planet, and then circling it and coming back to you, landing in your heart. At this moment you feel that the loving energy you sent out multiplied on its way back to you. It feels like a warm, powerful wave embracing all of you.

• Now you decide to send more messages, exactly the same way, and find out how they will affect you. You send, one by one, the following messages, always waiting for each of them to return, before sending the next one: “I am happy to be here.” “I am happy to be connected with you.” “I enjoy this moment.” “I love you.”

Stay with this loving feeling for as long as you wish after you open your eyes.

Experiencing is not about rushing things. Experiencing is about experiencing.

During this short meditation, you may feel what we call pure happiness — for no reason at all, and without any external circumstances that could contribute to that feeling. You may also experience yourself being internally connected with everything else while being a part of the One Whole.

Now you know how it works:

• We send to ourselves everything that we send out. There is no “out-there” when we embrace everything in our heart. There are no limits to the consciousness that we are — other than those we choose to impose on ourselves.

• We experience ourselves in the “here and now” by watching our intentions in the present moment.

All we need to claim our true power is to stay in the present moment to remember that we already have it, and use it with Love.

In her book “Master Teachings of HOPE”  – Volume 1, Johanna Kern guides the readers through a specific program designed to expand your vision of yourself, sharpen your intuition and awake some of the dormant areas of your brain. The book also contains twelve never before published Inner Journeys, allowing the readers to discover their Own Truth, and train their brain for new ways of thinking. 

“Inner Shadow Transformation – The Banner Method” offers the unique, highly effective Shadow Transformation Method developed by Johanna Kern over many years of working with thousands of people as a successful producer, CEO, director, and counselor.

It is a step-by-step system, a tool that leads to identifying one’s hidden subconscious blockages, and then freeing and releasing the pure, inherent Power of our Subconscious Mind. 

Johanna Kern, transformational teacher and multiple award-winning author (“Master and the Green-Eyed Hope”, “The Birth of a Soul”, “Inner Shadow Transformation – The Banner Method”“Master Teachings of HOPE”, “365 (+ 1), Affirmations to Supercharge Your Life”, “Secrets of Love , Shadowland: The Legend), many years ago suddenly began to experience regular spontaneous trances in which she found herself in an ancient temple, where she was receiving the Teachings Of Hope from an ancient Master.

The Teachings Of Hope gave her answers to the most important questions occupying human minds for centuries and a new look at all that we hold as sacred – ourselves, our origins and purpose:

From what is the meaning of our existence, to how to achieve true Happiness, Success, Power, Abundance and Freedom from all limitations. From how our thoughts function in the field of energy that we all are a part of, to what is the meaning and nature of life, matter, spirit – and what really is the Wheel of Creation.

She shares her knowledge and helps people to find their own power and progress in all areas of their lives. Her books and audio recordings are available on this site, as well as on Amazon and other major online retailers around the world – in English, German and Polish languages.
