You can bring peace to your life by first becoming mindful of the thoughts you think, the words you speak, and the actions you take.
Peace of mind isn’t something you find by looking Out there, but rather by looking Within yourself. And today I will share with you a few simple ways in which you can return to your Center and bring peace to your life.
8 Ways to Bring Peace to Your Life
1. Walk in Humility
Humility isn’t about thinking less of yourself nor is it about allowing those around you to walk all over you.
No! That’s not humility.
Humility is this peaceful remembrance that we are all in this together and that none of us is better, or worse than another. We are all ONE and the same.
To walk in humility is to return to your Sacred Heart – the Center of your Being, and realize that we are all moving in the same direction. We are all striving to return Home.
“The truly humble cannot be humbled. They are immune to humiliation. They have nothing to defend. There is no vulnerability and, therefore, the truly humble do not experience critical attacks by others. Instead, a truly humble person sees the critical verbalization by another person as merely a statement of the other person’s inner problems.” ~ David R. Hawkins
2. Offer yourself to those around you
I have always loved this quote from my mentor, Wayne Dyer:
“When you seek happiness for yourself, it will always elude you, if you seek happiness for others, you will find it for yourself.” ~ Wayne Dyer
We live in a world where people are starving for love, peace, and affection. A world where more and more people are feeling alone and disconnected from themselves, the ones they love and the world around them. And by offering the gift of our presence, time, love, and affection, we can help ease, not only their pain and suffering but also our own.
3. Be okay with not knowing
I know you want to know everything about everything. And I know you want to understand why certain things are the way they are. But you have to be humble enough to accept that certain things are beyond your human comprehension.
There are things in this world that are far too big for your limited mind to grasp and comprehend.
And that’s okay.
There’s nothing wrong with not knowing.
“In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it—thou art a fool.” ~ Lord Chesterfield
4. Surrender to a Higher Power
Believe it or not, we are not alone in this world nor do we have to do all of it alone.
We have help.
We have guidance.
We have love and we have support.
But we have to surrender first.
And we do this by humbling ourselves before our own Hearts and Souls, and putting our faith and trust in a Power Greater than ourselves.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” ~ Isaiah 55:9
5. Simplify your life
According to the 80/20 rule, we only use 20% of the things we own. The rest is just clutter.
And the same goes for everything else.
We clutter our lives with thoughts, things, people, and experiences that take the life out of our lives, and rob us of our peace. But thankfully, we can escape this trap by removing the clutter and by simplifying our lives.
6. Forgive them all
Forgiveness is not just a verb, but also a great revenge.
When you forgive, you prove to those who have harmed you that your happiness and peace of mind are a lot more important than clinging to the poisonous memories of the past.
To forgive is to be FREE.
Forgive them all and let yourself be free.
7. Let there be Thank You’s
If we look back in history at some of the greatest men and women who walked this Earth, we will discover that both their joys and their sorrows were necessary to craft their inspiring and grand lives.
Since we can’t really know what each event – painful and not so painful, will play in the grand scheme of things, it is wise to get into the habit of saying ‘Thank You’ for all the pleasant and not so pleasant gifts life sends our way.
In the end, they all play an essential role in our growth, evolution, and spiritual awakening.
“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.” ~ Khalil Gibran
8. Bathe in Love
When you open your eyes in the morning, ask your heart to bathe you in Love. Ask your heart to open itself as wide as it possibly and ask it to bathe you and the whole world in its Love. Ask it to transform you and everyone you come in contact with.
And it will!
