There is a reason why it’s called “inner peace”; The peace you are looking for is inside you.
In fact, everything you are looking for is inside you. All you have to do is connect with it internally to create it externally.
Let’s explore that on a simplistic level as this is truly a complex and multifold topic and merits it’s own blog post.
For now, simply speaking…
What do you want? Well, right now, I think we all want to be at peace in a peaceful world. Agreed? I sure hope so.
Like I said, the peace you are looking for is within you – and that is true of everyone.
When we find our inner peace, we become peaceful; we attract more peaceful things and experiences into our lives.
Raise your frequency through meditation, get acquainted with your higher self, and your higher self will be attracted to – and attract – higher frequency people, occurrences and experiences to you.
This = more peace, within and without.
Drop your frequency by allowing yourself to react by becoming angry, agitated, irritated, frightened or negative, and you will attract people, occurrences, experiences that are vibrating on the same lower frequency.
This will cause you to experience conflict, struggle, drama, discomfort, disharmony, and physical, emotional and intellectual pain and suffering.
This most likely leading to disease (or “dis-ease”) and even an earlier than desired demise as the body cannot sustain a constant negative state without responding in some detrimental physical, emotional, intellectual or even spiritual manner.
This = 0 inner peace.
Bottom line: In terms of energy, like attracts like.
In this less than peaceful world we are currently residing in, how do we “rise above” the lower frequencies that surround us?
The frequencies that are perpetually trying to affect us in negative ways, including inciting fear, exposing us to scenes of violence on multiple screens (mobile, computer and television), and seeding and perpetuating the idea that we are helpless in the face of global challenges?
I am in no way negating the fact that the “old world” as we knew it is gone, never to be again. And there is a huge “take down” of things that are no longer working, that we know, collectively, haven’t been working for a very, very long time.
I am also not saying that we shouldn’t stay informed, though I do highly suggest sticking to reliable sources for your information such as citizen journalists or community leaders – or individuals within them – who have long-standing, solid records of purveying and advocating for the truth.
That said, even among those there are some whose agendas are not for the greater good.
What I am saying is, number one, that it’s time now, in fact it’s an absolute necessity if you are to navigate the waters right now and not drown in a sea of negativity and fear, to apply critical thinking, take absolutely everything you see and hear with a grain of salt, neither accept nor reject ANYTHING and draw your own conclusions based on your own in-depth research.
Dr. Wayne Dyer“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know about.”
Number two, it’s time now to go INSIDE and find your own truth. You will know INSTANTLY – your gut reaction will tell you – whether or not you resonate with something and whether or not it’s true for you.
And that’s how you will find your inner peace, and as a result, contribute to the creation of a peaceful world for us all to live in.
How do we go inside effectively to do that?
MEDITATE, MEDITATE, MEDITATE.
The more you refine your internal connection and communication with your higher self, the more your outer connection and communication with everyone and everything around you will become refined, lifted , enhanced and enlightened.
It’s that simple.
So it’s not PROJECT (as in the noun) RESPITE, it’s actually PROJÈCT (as in the verb) RESPITE.
When you “project” your inner state, it will manifest as your outer state and attract the like, as already discussed.
It does not matter whether you use a Guided Meditation or not to get you to the state of inner peace and bliss or not; just that you get there.
And the more you practice, the easier it will be to return there when you see something – or experience something or someone – that shakes you up.
A simple tool when you do get shaken up by something you read, hear or see, or an unpleasant encounter with someone who is acting out negatively, is to breathe deeply and simply say to yourself inwardly, “I AM LIGHT, I AM LOVE, I AM INFINITE AWARENESS, I AM.”
And just keep repeating that until you feel yourself returning back to centre; back to the REAL you that IS light, love and infinite awareness – having a physical experience in 3rd, moving to 4th density.
It is also EXTREMELY beneficial to ground yourself in Mother Nature. Just going for a walk, connecting your feet with some grass or sand, feeling the sunlight on your back or immersing your body into a lake or an ocean is akin to meditation and will yield incredible results. (That is why I have chosen to make the bulk of my images here that of Mother Nature.)
A Little 247 Year Old Gift from Pluto
It is indeed now time to cultivate our inner steadfastness, build emotional resilience and contemplate how we may “serve” the collective consciousness in order to rise above the detritus of the immense change that is upon us.
We are already experiencing the mighty effects of Pluto’s Return, astrologically speaking, which will be completed in February 2020, coinciding with the establishment of the United States of America on July 4th, 1776.
This return happens once every 247 years, bringing with it the uprooting and exposure of all the muck, mire, corruption and downright evil on the planet.
In other words, Pluto is here to CLEAN HOUSE. Big time.
According to astrologer, Michael Meade, “The best thing we can do right now is gear up for the long haul. Stamina.
You’ve most likely heard of a Saturn return? This is when Saturn returns to where it is in your natal birth chart, approximately every 27 years. Do you remember your life during the ages of 27-30? It is not an easy bridge to cross, and maybe you’re living it now or have already weathered through it.
A Saturn return brings with it a sobering process of aligning to your truth, revelation of dharma, and paying elements of karma along the way. Now let’s take this to the nth degree. Meet the Pluto Return. Approximately every 247 years, this annihilator of the false completes a cycle around the sun, returning to where it met a particular birth of an event of sorts.
A Pluto return is the beginning of a thorough acclimatization throughout the institutions of our nation, and thus will greatly impact the global society. Catapulted by the electrical force of Uranus in Taurus, expect upheaval as a steady roar within the arenas of government, environment, finances, agriculture, health, education, etc. This will take time. And still, we will come through this victoriously! It is always darkest before dawn yet the dawn is exceptionally bright my friends...
Pluto is our ‘Hero’ in a big tough love kind of way. Keep the gaze of your heart upon your inner truth and from there we will walk into the brilliant future together.” Source: https://www.cielawynter.com/blog/2020/04/14/how-do-you-prepare-for-a-pluto-return
This Week’s Guided Meditation: Building Resilience
Want to feel stronger, more resilient, like you can handle anything that comes your way?
This 30 Minute Guided Meditation on Building Resilience will help you more easily adapt positively to changes, challenges and any adversity that may come up for you.
As one of the most vital coping skills for surviving in the workplace, at school, or anywhere in the world, and at any stage of life, resilience enables us to be more flexible, more adaptable and far better able to cope with whatever life may throw our way.
Resilience is a learned behaviour and can be improved with regular practice and meditation, much like learning a sport or learning to play a musical instrument. Cultivating your meditation practice helps build the ability to quiet the mind during times of adversity with a calm assertiveness, enhanced emotional agility and cognitive flexibility, to build deeper and deeper levels of resilience within yourself.
This Guided Meditation is for anyone who wants to strengthen their “core” resolve and become stronger, more resilient, and have a coping tool at-the-ready to assist them when times get rough.
It involves a tree, some mountains and a storm. Spoiler alert! The tree remains standing strong and even more resilient to the storms that continually try its resolve and constitution… 🙂
