Being Peace is a lifelong process, one that evolves as we mature. Some of us reach a form of it sooner or later but we all have the ability, the capacity to Be Peace.
My personal philosophy is that when we ‘go inside’ and find the peace inside of us we will emanate peace in our outer being, the outer world, too. I don’t believe you need to do anything ‘special’ to create Peace but that the world will find peace one person at a time as each of us embrace peace inside. This is no simple task but I believe one worth pursuing.
Part of my belief system is that when we are peace within we will promote our health and wellness and when we are healthy we will promote peace inside.
Here are some Peace within tips I have discovered for myself and I am optimistic that one or more of them will aid you in finding your peace within.
Learn to Love and Trust Yourself
Meditate in whatever form suits you
It can be as little as 5 minutes a day or as much as hours
but learn to quiet yourself and listen to your inner being
The two that I use most often are
Breathe in to count of 4
Hold for 4
Breathe out for count of 4
Hold for 4
Another breathing technique:
Breathe in to the count of 4
Hold to the count of 7
Breathe out to the count of 8
Surrender and Allow, Surrender & Trust
When you are healthy, you can be more peaceful, when you are peaceful you are more healthy
Discover the different modalities than can aid you in improving your health and wellness
Assemble team mates to help you decide what your body needs and You be the one to make the decisions. Take the responsibility by listening to your body, your intuition, your Angels and Guides.
Acknowledge that it's not them and us.
We are all One and we can find the answers inside of ourselves.
Embrace that our bodies are remarkable ‘machines’ that have the power to heal. They give us warnings sometimes in the form of pain so we can find what we need to assist in our healing.
Go inside and ask your body what it is telling you.
Do your best to avoid internalizing the outside forces
Avoid feeling like a victim
I have journaled for many decades. I find it releasing and often relaxing. Once it's on the ‘paper” (I journal on my computer) it is exposed for me to deal with or to appreciate the accomplishments and gratitudes that I list.
These are simply personal methods that I have discovered through my many decades of evolving. I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to Be Peace.

LOVE AND TRUST YOURSELF and LET’S BE PEACE
LET’S BE PEACE… Origin Story
First, I’ll tell you about the origin of the LET’S BE PEACE Book, Movement and eventually podcast. It all started for me almost two dozen years ago when I was working for Jewel and her mom, Lenedra Carroll. Lenedra wrote a book titled “Architecture of All Abundance” and it was published around the time I worked for them. In it Lenedra speaks about Being Peace and what that can mean to an individual and the world. What I gleaned from her writing is that as an individual if we attain Peace inside that will promote peace in the world. That concept touched me deeply and I began using #BePeace in my social media posts. Several years later I asked my niece Alissa what she thought of #BePeace she said she thought it was too demanding. I considered that, and agreed, and soon changed my posts and my evolution of the concept to #LetsBePeace. The idea has evolved inside of me from there.
After writing and publishing my prescriptive memoir IT’S ABOUT TIME: My Award-Winning TV Adventure where I included a chapter about my spirituality and one chapter about health and wellness, I knew I had much more to say about both and planned on writing a sequel to the memoir. At a workshop with the amazing Sara Connell, Founder of The Thought Leader Academy, it became clear to me that I needed to make it into a collaborative book. The tone of the book I was planning needed to have the LET’S BE PEACE theme and also to address my passion for Alternative Health and Wellness modalities. Previously I worked with a wonderful collaboration of individuals on what was to be a Broadcast TV or Cable channel about Health, Wellness and Positivity. The channel has not yet manifested but the concept percolates inside of me still and I know a form of it will see the light of day.
There were and are many alternative Health modalities that I have used in my personal road to wellness, it occurred to me that I needed the experts to describe their modalities in order to give readers an accurate sense of what is available and how they can access them for themselves. I’ve always said I don’t care what you do, I simply want to help you know there are many options and I’ve felt it is part of my mission to help people explore some of those. So that’s how it was determined to do a collaborative book with experts either writing their own chapter, answering questions that I have posed or have me interview them and then have their interview transcribed and made into a chapter. Most chose the interview model and I am currently in the process of editing those and adding my introduction to each.
Early next year (2024) I will start a podcast with the LET’S BE PEACE theme and the book will be published.. simply when it’s ready!
So in this first LETS BE PEACE Blog let me simply say the first piece of advice I give in how to Be Peace is to LOVE and TRUST yourself.
Many more tips coming in the coming weeks and months and perhaps next time I’ll share the primary questions that the experts have responded to some degree in their contributions.
Meanwhile, LET’S BE PEACE!
