BEING PEACE INSIDE WHILE THERE IS WAR OUTSIDE
The dictionary defines war as: '…a conflict carried on by force of arms, as between nations or states, or between parties within a state” and sadly there are at least two such major conflicts going on at this time. That is NOT the type of war we are addressing here but I want to acknowledge the human impact on each of us when there is an armed conflict anywhere on the globe.
It is particularly difficult for most of us to find the Peace inside when the outside ‘world’ is experiencing armed and other types of war on the outside. This is particularly potent when hatred seems to be pervasive in our own community, almost in our back yard. But I believe that this is exactly the time we need to seek and Be Peace inside. You see, I sincerely believe that when each of us individually is peace, peace will multiply throughout the world. Most of us feel helpless in changing the outside world and many of us take pro-active steps to help secure peaceful resolutions. Consider how creating peace inside will permeate the outside. You don’t’ have to do anything pro-active within the outside world. Simply still ourselves and find peace inside.
Here are some of the techniques we discussed in Blog #2.
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
Journal – write about what you are feeling, doing or how you are Being. Anything that comes to you. Can be short or long or in-between. It’s a release and will help you focus on what you are experiencing inside.
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 I’s not them and us. We are all One and we can find the answers inside of ourselves.
It would be great if you’d like to contribute your thoughts on Being Peace and any techniques you’d like to share with our readers.
Meanwhile, have a peaceful week.
