Walking Around Looking Down | Linda Deir -author, speaker, transition coach, trainer

“Do you have a habit of missing things, not seeing things, and not being aware of what’s going on around you?

Why is this? Are there too many things going on? Are there so many distractions that you just want to go hide? It seems that everyone you meet on the street is hiding inside their phone. They are spending their entire life walking around looking down.

Ironically, this makes them feel connected, but connected to what? They are not connected to anyone personally only digitally. Many younger people now have difficulty carrying on a conversation in person, feeling awkward and shy and reserved. Others are angry about what they look at all day on their phones; the problems in the world, politics, wars, their favorite team lost, anything they want to get lost in is delivered through their phone. This has made people very cautious and tied up in knots. They have established a habit of hiding.

You hardly see anyone walking around looking up.

What happened to looking up at a beautiful sky or clouds, or a sunset or sunrise? People don’t seem to care much about these real-life experiences anymore. They’d prefer to see a picture of a sunset on Instagram. You must remember that people are more disconnected from humanity than they have ever been. They believe that texting someone or sending them a smiley face is a relationship. Many so-called good friends hardly ever speak to each other on the phone or get together to do something. When they do get together they spend their time on their phones.

Imagine walking around looking down your entire life? What will that make you? More importantly, what will that prevent you from becoming? Will ignoring everyone around you and what’s going on really benefit you in any way.

Recently there’s been a spate of terrorist attacks using vehicles.

People driving at high speeds and ramming into a crowd of people. It seems it’s becoming a daily happening somewhere in the world with growing casualties. It’s grown into dozens of people getting killed and even more getting hurt. The people who got mowed over was walking around looking down at their phones, not present in the moment, not even taking the time to look up and around so they could see a speeding vehicle coming their way.

People seem surprised when a vehicle appeared out of nowhere traveling at a high speed and ran into the crowd, or into a building. It’s hard not to see a speeding truck coming toward a group of people if anyone in the group is present in the moment. Even if just one person in the group was aware and in the present moment and being the observer, all the lives could have been saved. But no, no one person seems to be aware and in the present moment.

The lesson here is, walking around looking down makes you an easy target.

Are people’s lives so miserable that they must invent electronic ways to escape it? These electronic distractions have become their new world, their new reality, a reality that even causes severe health reactions if they are denied their use for even a day. When something like this takes over an entire generation or a large portion of the world’s population, it just makes it easier to control everyone. After all, you can put anything you want in front of them on a little screen and not only will they believe it but forward it to hundreds of their digital friends. This is the easiest way to get the masses thinking all alike in a short period of time.

So the next time you catch yourself walking around looking down, we want you to stop and put your phone away or turn it off for one hour and see what you’re missing.”


  • While you are walking around looking down your life is passing you by.
  • You are missing more than you are learning by walking around looking down.
  • If you continue with this behavior what will you miss the guidance we are sending to you.   

How It Works: These electronic devices have turned people into knots. They are slaves to the demands of technology, while conveniently hiding behind it. While it may make you feel safe it’s actually exposing you more than ever. You need more vacation moments and days away from the demands of technology. The technology used to be a choice, however, now it demands your attention all of the time. This is why you are walking around looking down. Make a deliberate effort to take control back by taking a time out from your phone or computer and actually experience a present moment. Start by interacting with people in person. Go for a walk with your pet. Lookup instead of looking down and take a deep breath. Do all of this without letting the phone break into your present moment experience – this is where your Spirit Guides reside. ~ Linda Deir
