If you had asked me a decade ago what my main aim was each day, it would have been the opposite of peace.
I was driven to succeed, to create a new life for myself, and to create a new business that would give me the freedom and financial stability I desired. In truth though, and I can see it as I ponder back to those years, I was caught in a hamster wheel of struggle, of hurt, of pain, of unworthiness and I was as far from inner peace as I could get most of the time!
Like many people I come across, if you had asked me to invest my time and energy into peace, I would have laughed and told you – I don’t have time for peace! My focus was on more money, love, time, opportunities, etc., not peace. Now, a decade on, I understand that everything I desire begins with peace. It’s not an option.
1. Inner peace daily
2. Finding peace with the past and present
3. Finding peace in the areas of life that are still chaotic and in conflict
4. Finding peace with who I am
And everything you desire also begins with peace. How can you find that peaceful place within, and start to bring it out into the experience around you, without having to spend too much time and effort though? And why will peaceful energy help at all? Here are my 3 Tips for Inner Peace that will answer these questions and more:
When you are in a state of peace and calm, you tend not to react to the people or situations around you.
TIP: When you sense yourself being triggered by someone or the situation, breathe, walk away for a moment if you need to, become centred, and then, act from a place of stability and calm, rather than reacting from the old emotion that was triggered.
Self-enquiry rather than stepping into blame will help you return to the present, and to peace and calm.
TIP: If you find yourself in a situation where you are about to blame a person or situation for not feeling good at that moment, ask to yourself instead: Why did this trigger me? This self-inquiry will bring more peace to you, faster, and will help you find the expansion you are experiencing.
Self-acceptance and the acceptance of what is is one the fastest ways to inner peace yet often one of the most challenging.
TIP: Acceptance is not denial or absolution of things that have happened in your life. It is the present moment awareness of why it all happened and how it has expanded you in divine ways. It brings deep peace. Inner peace will bring you so many gifts in your life, body, mind, and energy. It’s a state worth the effort to be in.
