Discovering My Peace

Peace, to me, means a place where I can feel the calm a midst the raging seas. The place within me that is filled with love without a drop of worry about anything or for anyone. A feeling that everything is exactly as it should be and that everything will be okay, even if I can’t see how that will happen.

I’ve been dabbling, inconsistently, with various ways to find my peace over several years. For me, it takes a lot of intentional practice to be in a steady state of peace. Once I reach a comfortable level of peace, I relax my practice and don’t notice the slow slide back down to dis-ease until it feels dramatically bad.

As I am getting older, my patience with this process is waning dramatically. I want peace in my life NOW and want it to stay. The one thing I have learned so far, on this journey, is that my peace has to come from within me. I can’t want outside circumstances to conform to my definition of what peace is. Well, I can want that, but trying to change what or how anyone else is, is a recipe for failure on my peace front. I need to allow my peace, no matter what is going on around me. It can be done. I’ve done it before. And I will do it again.

Meditation, exercise, eft and being outside in nature help me into to a peaceful place. I just need to get more into a habit of doing these things. The month of December, I am really going to make the effort with the meditation and the exercise. I tap (EFT) when I remember and it does make a pretty immediate difference in my level of agitation. I may try nature too, depending on how nice winter is here this year. Me and cold don’t get along very well. 🙂

This is all a journey. I know that it may take a while to cultivate a consistent peaceful mentality. I also know that life will challenge me on a regular basis. It is my ability to return to my peaceful loving understanding of the bigger picture that I am eagerly looking forward to.

90, err… Maybe 30 Days of Meditation

Okay, so here’s my plan. I was re-listening to a workshop and came across a couple of tracks where Abraham is talking about how to access the guidance that your inner being can provide.

The quick answer is:

We would encourage any of you who are wanting to receive, who are really deliberately wanting to sit and receive – decide that you’re going to meditate every day for 15 minutes for 90 days.

I already meditate, though not consistently. I am going to do a 30 day meditation challenge. After the 30 day point, it should be a habit and should be easy to continue on for the next 30 and then hopefully the final 30 days.

I have many meditation tools at my disposal to make this happen. I could definitely use some ME time and the added bonus of eventually getting some clear guidance is something to eagerly look forward to.

Good Morning, welcome to Atlanta. I have a couple, three quick questions for you. My first question is: I would really like to be able to communicate with my inner being as directly as Esther can communicate with you and I’ve read some the description of how to do that you have in some of your earlier books but I haven’t really been receiving anything in a way that I can grasp or understand. And I was wondering if you could help me with that.

Abraham

The words that we spoke earlier are really the key to what you are reaching for because in the beginning, especially in the beginning, it is subtle. In fact, it’s so subtle – here’s what happens. As our friend just said, you have to be in alignment with it in order to receive it. But when you are in alignment with it, you are it. So your ability to perceive it or to analyze it or even to evaluate it is hindered. Esther always said it was so helpful that Jerry was so excited about the conversations with Abraham because they just felt like normal conversations to Esther while they are happening. And so, the benefit of having someone else sit in, while you are having the conversation, is that they can do a better job of acknowledging the value of what’s coming. And they can also stand in the vibrational place of asking the question. You see, the vibration of a question or something you want to know, and the vibration of the answer, are very different frequencies. And if you are all full of the question, then you can’t hear the answer. So you have to get into this place where there is no vibration going on within you that contradicts the answer before you can receive it. You have to be so in alignment with the answer, in order to receive it, that then question goes away. It’s interesting, isn’t it? So you can’t hold the question and the answer at the same time.

So, what we recommend, if you don’t have someone that you want to play with you in that way, is let your question rest within you for a day or two, really clarify it. Let this be the day that I clarify the question. Then for the next day, meditate. Get yourself into that good feeling place and then, after you come out of meditation, sit and listen for what flows and record it in some way – either through writing or typing or verbally record it. And then, at a later time, after it’s all cooled off, go back and read your question and read your answer, and KNOW your brilliance. You see…

Because I guess there are a few things that I’ve been thinking about for a couple of years and I don’t… Even when I am totally distracted and thinking about totally different topics and put those aside, I don’t seem to be getting anymore information on those issues.

Abraham

It’s because what happens is, when you ponder something for a while, you’ve got a really strong, steady vibration about it which prevents the answer from coming cleanly. So start with things you don’t care about that much.

It was easier for Esther because she didn’t have any deep life questions within her. Jerry was full of them. He had enough questions to keep Esther busily asking Abraham to flow through her endlessly. So many questions. Esther was not full of questions. She wasn’t contradicted about anything. She wasn’t pushing against anything. She was just sorta in a neutral clear place. Well that sort of an unusual thing. And so, that’s where meditation comes in.

Meditation will clear you. Meditation will clear your vibration. Meditation will line you up with your grid.

We would encourage any of you who are wanting to receive, who are really deliberately wanting to sit and receive – decide that you’re going to meditate every day for 15 minutes for 90 days. And during that time, don’t get active about asking your questions because when you bring an active bothersome question into meditation, you clutter up the vibration.

Mediation is about quieting the mind. Meditation is about releasing anything that is contridicted to the vibration. Meditation is about hooking into the core grid, you see.

And of course you can’t stop living life. The questions are still going to come but this meditation is a progressive thing. You do it every day for 15 minutes for 90 days, you’ll clear yourself enough that you’ll be able to sit then with a new found question and recieve clearly the answer. It is our promise to you.”

What Would You Tell Your 20 Year Old Self?

 

I recently read a post, “What Would You Say To Your 20-Year-Old Self?“, that really struck a chord with me.

I thought about where I was in my life, at that time, and my heart literally ached for that young adult version of myself. I lived through some pretty bleak times from when I was 20 to about 28 years old. My dad died and my marriage died. While it felt like the end of the world, I did survive. I did more than survive, with time, I thrived.

So what would I say to my 20 year old self?

1) No matter how hard it feels or bad it looks, it WILL get better. It ALWAYS gets better with time.

2) You WILL be happy. Look for things to be happy about. Focus on what you want instead of all the things you don’t. That will make you feel SO much better.

3) You will come out of it all so much stronger and wiser than you ever thought possible.

4) You are unconditionally loved.

5) Expect miracles and you will get them.

6) Spend as much time as you can outside in nature. You will find a peace that you desperately want there. Listen to the wind, bask in the sunshine, and feel the power of nature all around you.

Believe me, you will make it through. Life is a huge journey, and in the end, it will be all worth it. Without all that you have lived, you wouldn’t be who you turn out to be. And, if I do say so myself, you are pretty darned amazing 🙂

With all the hindsight you have gained through the years, what would YOU tell your 20 y/0 self?
