A peace that lives within us
Updated: Apr 26, 2019
Inside us all is a peace. This peace is sometimes very difficult to experience because our minds are constantly thinking about bad things in the past or fearing what could happen in the future.
Living in the past or future will inevitably create stress in your life and will train your eyes to focus on other negative things and people.
The key to happiness is calming the mind. When you calm your mind you are living in the present. When you are living in the present you will start to attract more peaceful people and situations into your life.
The average person has approximately 60 000 thoughts a day. Calming the mind is simply one of the most crucial aspects of healing. A quick way to calm the mind is to try to catch your negative thoughts. When you catch yourself thinking negatively you automatically become 'present'. Being present basically means you are not thinking and if you are not thinking you are obviously not thinking negative thoughts. For this very short time of being present you are giving your adrenal glands (where the stress hormones come from) the rest they most desperately need.
What will happen next? Your thoughts will most likely get the best of you and consume your mind again. That's okay! Just catch them as much as you can. The more you catch your negative thoughts the easier it becomes.
When you catch your negative thoughts on a regular basis you start to experience moments of peace. You will also notice that living in your head is where anxiety actually comes from.
Keep practicing. Break that cycle!
Always keep in mind...
