Inner peace is one of those things that feels different to everyone. Some may call it peace of mind. Others would describe it as faith. To some, it’s like a strong system of roots that keeps the tree from toppling over no matter how the winds may blow.
Most of us would probably agree that inner peace has a lot to do with self-awareness and love. Inner peace can keep you grounded when the world seems to be spinning out of control. When you have true inner peace, you’re less likely to let the world’s negativity shatter your sense of calm.
Even in this crazy world, you can work on inner peace. Energy healing, letting go, meditation, and more are all at your fingertips. Here are some tips that might help you find the balance you crave.
Let Go of What You Can’t Control
Most of us spend time worrying about things we can’t control. While an individual can make a difference in their own circle, and in many ways even change the world, there are other things you can’t change. If you were to make a list of your worries, how many things are you wasting energy on that you can’t actually fix?
Worry seldom gets us anywhere — especially when we aren’t the one in control. Concern yourself with the things you can change, and let the rest go. Your inner peace will thank you.
Be Honest With Yourself
Nothing can disrupt your inner peace like living a life that isn’t meant for you. We often get caught up in people pleasing, letting family, friends, or society dictate our choices. Instead of chasing what other people value (a certain career, education, or life goal), ask yourself what YOU want most and go after what YOU value. While this is much easier said than done, life will be easier and more joyful in the long run if you lose the pretense.
Living a life of your own choosing doesn’t mean living selfishly. While you should always pursue goals that will bring you joy, one of the best ways to feel joy is to do something for others that they can’t do for themselves. Kindness to others usually helps you take your mind off your troubles (like those things you worry about that you can’t control). Doing a good deed often brings kindness in return, but even if it doesn’t, it always brings satisfaction and contributes to inner peace.
Use Energy Healing
Energy healing tools like The Emotion Code® are designed to help you release trapped emotional energies, called Trapped Emotions. During difficult times, the literal energy of emotions like unworthiness, jealousy, anger, disappointment, or grief may become physically trapped inside your body. This can make you more prone to feeling those things at any time. You can find and release those energies with The Emotion Code, so they no longer have to stand between you and inner peace.
As a companion to energy healing, meditation is a powerful tool for calming the mind and spirit. Daily meditation can help you relieve stress and anxiety, which are enemies of inner peace. Meditating can give you a much-needed break from the world and put challenges in perspective. You don’t need special equipment or training, but the mindfulness of meditation can bring peace to your mind, body and soul.
Get Back to Nature
Your daily struggles are real, but appreciating your surroundings can help put things in perspective. Let the sights, smells, and sounds of nature envelop you.
Spend a day at the beach or go barefoot in the park. The contact between your skin and the ground can reconnect you with the earth. More research is needed, but some experts believe that the electrical charges from the earth can have a positive effect on your body. You can try it yourself with this 2-minute grounding exercise.
Try a Technology Fast
While devices and social media are great for staying in touch, they can also wreak havoc on your inner peace. Many of us tend to compare our lives to others after using social media. Even if you don’t have this problem, consider the mindless clutter it could be adding to your life and think about unplugging for a while. And if you find yourself “joined at the hip” with your phone or laptop lately, put those things away and vow not to touch them for the afternoon, the day, or the weekend. You’ll likely feel more “in the moment,” which can help you feel inner peace.
Simplify Your Life
Think about how much of the chaos of your daily life is put upon you by outside sources (like current events). Then honestly consider how much of it you’ve allowed into your life by overcommitting to things, overscheduling, or allowing worldly things and “stuff” to steal too much of your time and energy. Simplifying your life can clear the way to inner peace, and ultimately it boils down to choices and priorities. What can you let go of? What commitments can you put a stop to? Stop overcommitting to projects, meetings, and activities, and start having more downtime. Rid your space of unnecessary objects and create clean lines and simple spaces in your home. Chances are, your life and surroundings will feel much more peaceful.
