Inner Peace; Finding It and Keeping It

by Karen Hood-Caddy –

There is such a pervasive sense of uncertainty and unknowing. Once upon a time, you could find out the “answer” to almost anything by going to an ‘expert’. These days however even the experts don’t seem to know what to do. Whether the issue is our financial situation, our health or our relationships, there is a great deal of differing advice about what we should do.
The good thing about not being able to get an definitive answer about what to do is that we are being forced to tune into our own inner sense of things. When we truly know what is right for us, it does not matter what others say.
But how do we find out what our own sense is? The first step to inner listening is to become calm. We can’t look into the depths of our inner pool if the surface is chopped up with waves. We need to calm the waters and then look.
Here are some ways to settle yourself down and become calm.

1. Come back to your senses.  

Notice what you’re touching, tasting, hearing, seeing and smelling right now. Most of our fears and anxieties are based on what we’re worried about happening in the future. When we tune into the present moment through our physical senses, we get a strong and immediate confirmation of how supported we actually are.  

Take one minute to do this now: Notice what your senses are sensing. Feel your lungs breathing and notice that all the air you need is there for you every minute of every day. Now notice the way the chair you’re sitting on supports you, holds you up. Allow yourself to experience how your basic survival needs are all being taken care of. Recognizing this will help you relax. Inner peace lives in this relaxed state. 

2. Belly breathe for a few minutes whenever you can.  

This will bring you into your body and help you access the peacefulness that is already within you. We often forget that Inner Peace is something that’s already inside us. Sometimes we get so caught up in paddling through the big waves on life’s surface, that we forget about the ocean on peace that dwells under the surface. 

3. Do things more slowly.  

Again, this is a small intervention, but remarkably powerful. I think it works because inner peace is inherently a slow thing and when we move more slowly, we come closer to it energetically. 

4. When faced with challenges ask yourself, “Does this really matter?”  

See if you can do this once a day. You’ll be surprised and refreshed how often the answer is “No, it doesn’t really matter.” 

5. Remember times you felt peaceful and go back to them.  

There is a beach in Greece and a few islands out on Georgian Bay where I’ve experienced deep peacefulness. When I return to them in my mind, I make my imaginings them as real in my imagination as I can. I remember the sound of the wind, imagine the smell of summer sun on rocks, feel my kayak bobbing in the waves. Just writing about this makes my shoulders relax.  

Remember, the unconscious doesn’t know the difference between an imagining and reality, so your body will respond to these remembrances. And the the more you do this, the more you will be laying down pathways in your brain, which means the easier it will get. 

6. Turn Off the News.  

Studies have shown that people who watch the news before they go to bed don’t sleep as well. Not surprising, given the doom and gloom in the news. Remember, doom and gloom sells, but you don’t have to buy it. Limit the number of times you listen to the news or read it and choose wisely the time of day you let it in. 

7. Play soothing music or nature sounds.  

This can have a strong subliminal effect. 

8. Take breaks in your day. 

Our energy tends to balance itself naturally if we let it. Get out at lunch or take your computer to a park (that’s where I’m writing this from) and let your energy recoup.

Practice these ideas and you may find yourself feeling, showing some of the following ‘symptoms’ of inner peace.


1. Tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fears based on past experience.
2. An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
3. Loss of interest in judging yourself or anyone else.
4. Loss of interest in conflict.
5. Disinclination to worry (this is a very serious symptom).
6. Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
7. Connected feelings of connectedness with others & nature.
8. Frequent attacks of smiling through the eyes of the heart
9. Increasing susceptibility to extend love to others.
10. Increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

Getting To The Core Of Who You Are

by Garrett Paknis – 

What is it that you most want but are afraid of speaking up about? Has there been something that you’ve kept locked away from all your friends and family members simply because of a fear of being judged or ridiculed? Is there some sort of secret fantasy life you wish to live yet you don’t know how to go about getting it? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Our whole purpose in life is to do exactly what we wish to do. What makes us truly happy. Not what our ego wishes for or what our parents or friends wish for… but what our core being is both made up of and is fueled by. Sometimes, the biggest hurdle keeping us from living the authentic and passionate life we are dreaming of are our own self-limiting beliefs. We get caught up in our heads and societal pressures to be one thing when we know it isn’t who we are.
Who’s going to stick up for you? Who’s going to fight your battles if you don’t? The most amazing, exhilarating freedom can come about when we face our fears and move confidently in the direction of our future. Sometimes, all it takes is the smallest step in order for all the doors to open. And once those doors are open and the light is beckoning you from the other side, you just have to run and jump through. You don’t hesitate… you jump. That’s what this life is about. It’s important to make the jump and take chances. Chance is a yummy recipe for miracles.
In order to get ready to make that jump, you need to get comfortable with yourself. You need to be honest and figure out what it is that keeps you from living truthfully and going after what you most desire. Usually, at the core of this issue are the ideas of others. Whether you were once told that it was impossible for you to do something, or whether others expect you to live a certain type of life – that is usually our greatest detriment as people.
But who cares? No – really? 

Who cares about what other people say? They aren’t the ones fighting for you at the end of the day, you are. The only person you need to be happy with when you’re going to sleep at night is yourself. So let’s get to the core of it all and unplug from our false beliefs about ourselves! I want you to get to the core of you.
When you’re ready, the universe will step up and be ready with you. 

You’ll be presented with the opportunities to change once you decide to change. And like the light beckoning you to jump through the door of opportunity, you’ll find yourself meeting every opportunity and rising up to it. It’s time to rise up to yourself. Get clear on the life that you’re after… and… go get it. Off to the races! I’m over here rooting for you.

Your Mind is Off and Running

 Begin Within:

Between the time you hear the buzz of your alarm and you reach over to hit the snooze button, your mind is off and running. It races through the list of things you need to do first thing this morning before you get out the door. You rush through your morning chores, taking care of the needs of the family, the children, the pets and then yourself. 

Then there is the list of things you didn’t get done yesterday, the errands that you can hopefully squeeze in at lunchtime, and remember that report due today at work. Oh yea, what’s for dinner? We jump into the day head first hoping that we can swim to the shore of tomorrow in one piece.

When you begin your day in this frenzied mind you are exhausted before your feet hit the floor. 

There must be a better way! There is. I call it “begin within.”

I am sure that at sometime in your life you have a memory of feeling peace. Maybe it happened when you sat quietly drinking a cup of coffee or tea, enjoying its flavor. Perhaps it was when you sat on the park bench watching the squirrels play the birds feeding. If you practice yoga you may have felt peaceful as you sat in quiet reflection.

There is a peace that we can all experience. Peace begins within. 

If you want to have peace in your day you must cultivate it by taking time to begin within. It only takes a few minutes everyday to build a relationship with your peaceful heart. 

Sitting quietly in contemplation with your mind focused on your heart, even if it is in the time between the alarm and the snooze is enough time to make a huge difference in the way your day flows.

Move through your day differently. Instead of praying that you arrive at the shore of tomorrow in one piece, begin within and feel the Oneness of Peace.

Growing a Peaceful Soul

by Guy Finley – 

Key Lesson: Learning to step back and to examine your own heart — before you give someone a piece of your mind — is the only way to grow peace in your soul.
Step Out of Yourself and Into the Whole of Life

Real hope for the world begins with discovering what it takes to become a new human being, because when you are no longer who you were but rather the new person that you have been meant to be all of your life, then all of those things that were connected with who and what you once were, cease to be the whole of you. Which means that every single one of your relationships has changed, even if the people in those relationships don’t know that change took place.
No gulf exists between your life and God’s life, except for your awareness of yourself. 
No time, no space exists between you and God’s life — only the level of awareness from which you live determines whether you understand this unity or not. 
That means the task is not to try to change things in time and space but to bring yourself back into the moment where the possibility of this relationship already exists, and where your realization of it changes everything and everyone involved.
For example, imagine you start to get angry at somebody; of course, the reason your anger grows is because you feel you have the right to be angry. In your mind, the other person did something, and you think you see all the reasons why. But in a flash, something new occurs to you: it’s clear that if you go forward with what you are about to do — even though you think you must in order to change the other person so that you don’t have to go through this again — you can “see” that such an (angry) action changes nothing at all. 
In that same moment, you become aware of the whole of yourself… a wholeness that shows you that this anger you say the other person produced “then,” is hurting you now. You see the anger isn’t good for you. You know it isn’t good for the other person. It’s more than evident: this negative state is good for nothing. 
To see the truth of this ends the question of what to do with the person and the problem of the pain being blamed on the other person. The choice to set down this suffering is made for you by the same state of self-wholeness that made your suffering evident to you.
Awareness of the whole of yourself changes the whole of yourself in the instant of that awareness. 
In that moment, all that you were and ever will be with any other relationship, has found a new path. You don’t know what will happen to you if you don’t express the negative state. 
You don’t know what will happen to you if, for the first time in your life, you let go of caring how others might see you if you don’t have the last word. Instead, you’re going to go ahead with what you know is true instead of trying to protect what you sense is false. 
You’ve come to that point in the path where you cannot see beyond the unfolding moment but where you are aware that you can no longer be the kind of human being who acts from what is unkind towards anyone at all. Knowing what you can no longer be, you step into the whole of something because you have stepped out of yourself.
It is there you will find that everything is good. 
It is there you find out nothing can happen to you that isn’t for you, and nothing can happen to you in such an action that isn’t for everyone else, because you have given your life up for the sake of what is whole. 
It’s clear to you. Then, it doesn’t matter where you go, it doesn’t matter what you have to do, the things that weigh don’t matter — all of that simply changes, because now you’re not sitting outside of life trying to figure out who you should be and what you have to do to keep your life in place. You have grown up spiritually. You have decided on the life of the whole, that God wants to give you.

Living in the Flow

Letting Go of Control & Surrendering to All That Is

by Vaz Sriharan – 

WE LIVE OUR LIVES AS A FEATHER BLOWING IN THE WIND, desperately trying to work out where the feather will land or control which direction it will take. In truth, we never know where our feather takes us – and this is a beautiful thing – to allow the feather to breeze through existence with eternal freedom and infinite possibility.
If we look at our lives, we see that there may be control everywhere. We attempt to control our thoughts, our actions, our perceptions, our futures, our emotions, the people around us, our careers, our behaviours. It is all a reflection of a philosophy based in fear, where we assume that control equates to security. We assume that if I know the result of this series of actions then I will be safe. If I know what this person is thinking I will be safe. If I know why all this is happening to me right now then I will be safe. If I know what I will be doing in 3 months time I will be safe.
The paradox of control is that all it does is generate more insecurity! For as we continually look externally for our security – the future, other people, facts – we are continually at the whim of the external world – which is always changing. We are also basing our future expectations on past experiences, limiting our future experiences! Because it does not open us up to new experiences, ones we have never experienced before. 
We can never know what we will be doing in 3 months time. We do not know the reasons behind all the things that happen to us right now. It is our fears of the unknown that drive us towards creating a pretence that will satiate us in the here and now.
So how do we Live in the Flow?
Living in Flow requires us to take each moment as it comes and BE within it. What are we feeling? What are we feeling right now? This is the most important aspect of being – it is our emotions. Is it happiness, is it anger, is it joy, is it fear? And we look from our non-polarised eyes and see it without judgement. 
We do not label it, we recognise that all emotions are pure. All of them deserve the attention and expression as any other emotion. And we practice this with whatever emerges. Because it is within these emotions that we are given our divine guidance. Consequently we are allowed to grow at remarkable rates because we are doing all that our soul is asking – to release what is flowing through.
Remember, your emotions are flowing through! Emotions, or e-motion, is energy-in-motion. It requires movement, it lives in movement. When we are not allowing our beautiful divine emotions to flow through us, we are denying a part of ourselves and causing that energy to block in a various aspects of ourselves. This then like any blockage causes us suffering in our lives.
Another step is for us to allow for everything in our current reality. For when we allow for what is currently occurring, we accept ourselves as the Creators of what is occurring. We also allow the energies to flow because it is important for us to remember there is the whole of existence involved in this Creation. We allow, and energy moves and we move on to the next experience. Remembering that each experience is divinely meaningful, which we can use for our growth.
One of the key aspects of living in the flow of life is to have faith in the process. The process is the Universe! To be in flow is to trust that all things have their divine meaning. This is not simply hope, for hope is anticipation mired with doubt.
Faith is to be naked in the knowing that you will be clothed. It is the faith that there is a complexity to life that is beyond our current understanding. It is the knowing that the unknown is a place of true safety, contradicting what our fears (and our societies, reflecting or fears) have taught us. 
Faith can be the process of surrendering rigid fixations on having to know why or how things work and accepting the fact that we are on a learning path. Therefore we do not need to know how everything works! Our fears cannot accept the unknown because the unknown represents in-security and instability. However, it is from this unknown where miracles are born. It is the complete surrender to faith that we open to the deepest truths of the Universe. For we have no expectations, needs, attachments – we know instead that we are part of something magical. It is that knowing that frees us into accessing it.
As we release our emotions we also look at each moment as powerful signs. When we surrender to the moment, we dissolve all expectations and attachments, we embrace our natural state. In that sacred moment we become at One with the entire Cosmos. And it is in this holy instant that we are fully open to all the Divine guidance and loving miracles that are always available.
Divine Guidance
Divine guidance is speaking to us constantly, every moment of our lives. The Universe speaks to us in gentle whispers, never wishing to infringe on our sacred free will. When we surrender to each moment and see each as perfect, we let go of our mind’s control of our reality – in other words the constant revision of past events and future ones. Instead we become truly focused on what is happening in our space right now. 
We see each event as highly purposeful and meaningful, we direct our energies here and now. We listen, we feel, we acknowledge our current emotions and give them validation. We release and express. 
Divine wisdom flows from our hearts. It flows through our being. Our hearts are continually singing our unique notes into the Universe, merging with other notes to become the chorus of Creation. This Creation is what we are experiencing. This note exists in the eternal present moment. The more we are here, in this moment, the more we can recognise, feel and resonate with the sound of our note – and follow its divine guidance.
And as we flow we begin to tap into the magic of the Universe, where by living in a state of surrender and humility, we allow for synchronicity to become a true force in our lives.
Synchronicity is testament to our surrendering. Here we see each moment of existence as immeasurably purposeful. Each moment signposting us to our next stage of excitement. 
How do we look for the signs? It is when we acknowledge the small signs that the big signs emerge – because in truth, every single aspect of our reality is a sign! For all is a reflection of the Universe within. 
As we live and experience and meet others, our heart will pick up and resonate an emotion. Our heart speaks in a simple gentle voice – so gentle, never pushing, just asking yourself “Are we living in love?”
Each moment our heart is speaking about something that it resonates with – “this would interest us”, “I feel connected to this person”, “I like what that person said”, “writing this makes me feel connected”. When we listen to our heart and follow it, incredible miracles occur – for that is what they are – miracles. Profound sacred moments that we honour for the whole of creation has been involved in bringing it to us! Following these signs, lead us to greater opportunities that serve us.
To follow our heart, we surrender to the magnificence of creation, we surrender to each moment – understanding that we create our own reality and we have created all of this. We do not need to intentionally control our creations, we are here to live in the mystery of life, we are here to enjoy. If we have trouble with what to do or where to go, we only need to look at the majestic teachers entering our plane on a daily level. Children are our teachers for living in flow. They bring that knowledge, wisdom and ultimately – being.
Spiritual Human Being
It is being that allows us to live in the flow. Being. Being with every emotion that flows through us now. Being with every action and interaction that is occurring to us now. Being with everything around us now. And Being with all of it without judgment, coming from Love. When we are in a state of being, we are in true joy – for we are recognising that life has literally just been born. We have just been born into this moment, where yet again a new Universe has been born for us to experience.
You may be feeling an emotion related to a past event, yet if you are feeling it now, honour it. Express it. Release it. Releasing can come in many forms, writing, expressing to another, drama, exercise. As long as we acknowledge the emotion for what it is and allow it to flow.
Remember the Universe is constantly guiding you towards your highest goals and purpose – constantly! That is the only way the Universe can work! The Universe is not against you, it is gently showing the way. It is you! When something is blocking in our lives, it is a clear sign it is not working. How do we know? We know because our internal barometer – our emotions – will let us know. We feel stuck, we feel trapped, we feel like we are trying everything and nothing is happening. 
The message is so clear – try a new way, find a new path. Yet we spend so much of our energies trying to channel our feather down a particular passageway! Our higher aspect realises that this passageway may lead to a dead-end around the corner – yet we cannot see this from our perspective. Simultaneously our higher aspect may see other roads leading to wondrous joy that we cannot currently see on the ground level.
Of course our emotions are also signs of aspects of ourselves that require healing, so how do we know the difference between a closed path and one that we are meant to overcome? We know by surrendering to what is happening now. We treat the now as all that exists, for that is the truth! We embrace and release the emotions associated with this current situation and that is where the healing occurs. We will then see paths clear or continue to be blocked, ushering us to find alternate paths.
Accept that you do not hold the answers to everything. This is OK! Wherever you are, whatever you are doing is perfect. How do we know that? Because you have created it! That alone is acknowledgement of its perfection. 
You are a perfect being, reflecting that perfection into the world around you. You are experiencing perfection and the universe is experiencing it through you.
The Universe is You. When you surrender to the Universe, you are surrendering to yourself! You are All That Is. You are all creation. The conscious aspect of you here may not know what is going to happen, yet the Higher aspect of you holds all possibilities. However, the beauty of this plane is that we do not know what is going to happen! Thus we birth pure potentiality and possibility. 
You are capable of anything, any possible outcome – and all, every single path your chose will result in your happiness. For a seemingly negative experience will bring you greater wisdom to increase your happiness for all future moments, a positive experience will bring you happiness in that moment.
There are hundreds of billions of stars in this galaxy, billions of galaxies in this universe and no doubt many universes and realms beyond what we know. This gives us a dual perspective. On one level we are deeply humbled by the beauty of eternity, we are a part of a Grand Scheme of Existence that is playing out on a level totally beyond our comprehension. 
Feel the awesomeness of your surroundings for a moment. Breathe it in and surrender to the magnificence. On another level, we are part of this Grand Scheme of Existence! You are All That Is – you are All of This. This Greater Consciousness is with your every breath, your every action, nothing goes unnoticed by All That is.
Do you realise how special you are?  You are an integral part of this entire cosmos – watched with a love beyond comprehension. When we surrender to All That Is, we realise that there are many other aspects involved in our lives than our conscious aspects on the grounded level of Earth reality can comprehend. 
We are the instruments of Love, playing our notes across creation for purposes beyond our understanding. Our resonance travelling into this infinite eternity affecting everything in its path. And we do not need to understand it!
When we have faith and trust in the beautiful scheme, we release all worry, doubt, fear and sink into the same knowingness that all children are born with – that life is a wonder to cherish andto play within. Each moment born a new world. Each moment born a new paradise for us to create within. Each moment serving us.
Become the feather in your life. Float on the winds of the Universe, knowing that the Universe is taking you into the unknown. Surrender to the unknown and the infinite possibilities that are within your grasp. Feel the eternal safety that you are always cared for by the Great Cosmos, always guided and always unconditionally loved for everything you say, do, think and feel.
Free Yourself, Love Yourself!

The Door To Higher Consciousness


by Michelle Walling, CHLC – 

What does it mean to go within? This question is on the mind of most people who are awakening to the multidimensionality of this reality. Many people have different experiences but there is one similar thread that all people need to know about. 

The meaning of going within 

The term “going within” is the method by which we discover who we truly are.

“To go within simply means to be with yourself, to listen to yourself and your higher self, and to feel yourself by calming the mind and clearing the clutter; allowing more space for your higher thoughts to enter your being.” –Michelle Walling

How do I go within? 
Going within has been tied to the term meditation, and while this is an excellent way of doing this, there are also other ways that may not be actually termed “meditation”. Most times we go within without realizing it when we are:

  • Daydreaming
  • Driving (happens naturally but not the best time to remove your focus!)
  • Lying in bed before going to sleep and when we wake up
  • Sitting in nature
  • Singing, painting, writing, playing music, etc.
  • Washing dishes, mowing the yard, gardening, or doing a repetitive task
  • Taking a shower or bath
  • Reading
  • Watching TV

If you think about what your mind does while doing one of these tasks, you will realize what it means to go within. It feels like you are removing the focus from the outside world and going off on a little trip inside, right before you catch yourself and bring yourself back into the moment of the task at hand.


The next thing to add is intention. . As you sit with yourself, intend to turn off your five senses and withdraw from the world that you are used to existing in. Focus on who you are as consciousness and feel what it is like to be that. Acknowledge this consciousness and intend to bring more of this consciousness into your body. 

Having this sense of self awareness strengthens the connection to your higher self by placing your attention there. As you continue to do this, the connection continues to strengthen. 

As you practice this, you may or may not see things. Some people receive letters, numbers, or symbols in the mind’s eye. Some people feel a tingling sense of warmth and love. Some people may receive thoughts or movies. However some people may simply receive what they perceive is nothing but is actually the peace and serenity of their true selves. 

What will going within do for me? 

When you go within, you begin to crack the door open to higher consciousness. Contemplating who we are will re-establish the connection that has been lessened by the last round of genetic manipulation of humanity. Spending the time with yourself to grow this connection opens the door more and more to our multidimensional selves

When you begin to realize your multidimensional existence, you gain the ability to forgive others and to see things from a higher perspective of love and understanding. You may naturally separate from conflict and from people you do no longer resonate with. You build a sense of truth and knowing Once you have practiced going within it becomes something that you embody. You are always connected to your multidimensional self and you are able to access this part of you without having to try. 

This will be the one thread that is the same for everyone at this time. Your life will flow and synchronicity and precognition will appear to show you the way. This is truly the biggest benefit of going within and is the one thing that must be experienced on an individual basis to fully understand. Take the time to yourself to reflect on who and what you are and the magic will begin!within your infinite nature and begin to understand the polarity and duality that exists within you. You realize that you are connected to everything and everyone and the journey for balance begins. 

Once you have practiced going within it becomes something that you embody. You are always connected to your multidimensional self and you are able to access this part of you without having to try. This will be the one thread that is the same for everyone at this time. Your life will flow and synchronicity and precognition will appear to show you the way. This is truly the biggest benefit of going within and is the one thing that must be experienced on an individual basis to fully understand. Take the time to yourself to reflect on who and what you are and the magic will begin!

Inner Space Consciousness

by Eckhart Tolle –

Whenever there is beauty, kindness, the recognition of the goodness of simple things in your life, look for the background to that experience within yourself. Don’t look for it as if you were looking for something, you cannot pin it down and say, “Now I have it” or grasp it mentally and define it in some way. It is like the cloudless sky. It has no form. It is space; it is stillness, the sweetness of Being and infinitely more than these words, which are only pointers. 
When you are able to sense it directly within yourself, it deepens. 
So when you appreciate something simple — a sound, a sight, a touch — when you see beauty, when you feel loving kindness toward another, sense the inner spaciousness that is the source and background to that experience.
Many poets and sages throughout the ages have observed that true happiness — I call it the joy of Being — is found in simple, seemingly unremarkable things. Most people, in their restless search for something significant to happen to them, continuously miss the insignificant, which may not be insignificant at all. 
The philosopher Nietzsche, in a rare moment of deep stillness, wrote, “For happiness, how little suffices for happiness! . . . the least thing precisely, the gentlest thing, the lightest thing, a lizard’s rustling, a breath, a wisk, an eye glance — little maketh up the best happiness. Be still.” 
Why is it the “least thing” that makes up “the best happiness”? 

Because true happiness is not caused by the thing or event, although this is how it first appears. The thing or event is so subtle, so unobtrusive that it takes up only a small part of your consciousness—and the rest is inner space, consciousness itself unobstructed by form.

Inner space consciousness and who you are in your essence are one and the same. In other words, the form of little things leaves room for inner space and it is from inner space, the unconditioned consciousness itself, that true happiness, the joy of Being emanates. To be aware of little, quiet things however, you need to be quiet inside. A high degree of alertness is required. Be still. Look. Listen. Be present.
Here is another way of finding inner space: 
Become conscious of being conscious. Say or think “I Am” and add nothing to it. Be aware of the stillness that follows the I Am. 
Sense your presence, the naked, unveiled, unclothed beingness. It is untouched by young or old, rich or poor, good or bad or any other attributes. It is the spacious womb of all creation, all form.
Excerpted from Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth, pages 235-236
