Inner peace doesn’t come from getting what you want. Inner peace comes from remembering who you are at the deepest level… Divine ~ Lorraine Cohen
If you look at life through black and white eyes you miss all the rainbows in the grey. If you continue to label life experiences as good and bad, right and wrong, you will only be living a slice of life.
If you expect things to go poorly rather than well, you will likely create that. If you focus only on the negative when things don’t go your way, you will sacrifice your inner peace and happiness. If you allow the behavior of others to control your life then you empower others to control your joy. And if you feel ingratitude for what blesses your life every day, what makes you think you will be happier with more?
Your attitude, beliefs, expectations, and perceptions shape your experiences. Your life can change in an instant. You have it within you to transform the landscape of your life by the choices you make with an open mind and heart. Life is meant to be a grand adventure full of mystery, twists and turns, laughter, surprises and opportunities to stretch yourself to new horizons.
Remember energy goes where attention goes. The Universe is watching and listening….You are either living by conscious intention or unconscious default.
You don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward.
No matter what is happening “out there”, peace begins within. Trust that there is a reason and purpose for the experiences you have and the more you embrace them with an open mind and heart to receive the gifts that may not as yet be revealed, the more you will dance with life in Grace.
Stop for a moment, tune into your heart and connect with your soul. Focus on taking several slow deep breaths. Bring each breath up from your belly and fill your lungs to capacity with the energies of Divine Love. As you exhale slowly, send the energies out into the world to anyone and anything that you love.
Consider the special people in your life, Mother Earth, animals, the government, places of suffering … or wherever it is most needed.
As you breathe Divine Love in and out, invite the energies to fill you up completely, immersing yourself in this vibration and rest there a while longer, soaking it in.
Ahhhhhh. Then be open to receive the Love and blessings coming back to you. As we give we automatically receive.
Approach life as a grand adventure with the spirit of a child and the courage of a warrior.
Just take that next step in faith and trust and see what happens…
When you begin to experience doubt and worry, let it be a reminder to increase your faith. Remember that everything happens for a reason. Let go of trying to understand why and rest in the knowing that, in the end, all will be well. Because it will … Really.
Life can be magical if you let it.
You are more loved than you may realize and you never walk alone.
Sending Love and gratitude your way 😀
