When you think of “finding inner peace” you may visualize yourself on a mountaintop in lotus position, far away from your current reality. Realistically though, as appealing as that image may be, most of us don’t have the time or money to spend our lives meditating on mountaintops. … A poem that for me describes inner peace is:
It does not mean to be in a place
Where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.
It means to be in the midst of
these things and still be calm
In your heart.
What does inner peace look and feel like for you?
For me it includes:
- Feeling centered and grounded
- Feeling and believing that I am enough
- Feeling like I belong and am safe
- Believing that I’m part of something greater than myself and am here to make a difference in the world
- Being grateful for all that I have
- Believing the Universe is friendly and is here to love and support me
- Viewing life transitions and changes as opportunities to learn and grow
- Embracing and learning from life’s challenges
- Being responsive rather than reactive in situations
- Being okay with uncertainty
- Instead of feeling guilty when I take time for myself, feeling loved and nurtured
- Instead of worrying about what others will think or say, standing in my power, confidently expressing what I believe and asking for what I want
- Having balance in my life
- Listening to and trusting in my body’s wisdom
- Knowing what my passions, core values and life purpose are.
What strategies do you use to find and return to inner peace?
Here are several strategies I use to find and return to inner peace:
- Tap into and express my creative side regularly (daily if possible)
- Surround myself with people who nourish me rather than “sap” my energy
- Spend time regularly in nature (at least three times a week).
