Choose to Attain the Peace Within

Choose to Attain the Peace Within

Globally, we are experiencing a lot of heavy, fear-based energy due to health-related concerns. Each one of us needs to do our best to be present, stay calm and attain the peace within. It is essential that we do our best to shift from the vibration of fear to knowing the “social distancing” is a wonderful opportunity for introspection, self-reflection, self-care and self-love rather than see it as a negative.

I was recently interviewed by Dr. William Seeds for Authority Magazine on 5 Ways to Develop Serenity During Anxious Times. To read the article in its entirety, please click the link. I’ve shared the main points below:

Five things we can each do to develop serenity during uncertain and anxious times:

  1. Be present in the moment
  2. Practice good energetic hygiene by being grounded and centered
  3. Breathe consciously and intentionally
  4. Zone in on Zen and attain the peace within
  5. Choose to respond rather than react to external circumstances

Five things we can each do to support each other during uncertain and anxious times:

  1. Be supportive and encouraging
  2. Reach out rather than waiting on the other person to do so
  3. Speak your truth and communicate what you are feeling without hesitation
  4. Listen intently without judgment
  5. Choose to stay in a space of grace recognizing each person is having their own human life experience

Journey through Discomfort

Journey through Discomfort

Whenever you’re feeling moments of discomfort,
that means true change is happening for you.
~ John David Washington

We have been taught that life happens outside of our comfort zone or that we grow through challenges, and I do believe that is true. I also believe that the Universe presents us with contrasting experiences, so that we can understand fully what this human life experience is comprised of. If everything feels good and is comfortable, how do we grow?

I recently traveled to Camp Chesterfield in Chesterfield, Indiana, which is a historic spiritual community founded in 1886, to present three workshops. Upon arriving, I immediately discovered that the lodging did not have air conditioning. Much of the United States was experiencing a heat wave, Indiana included!

I inquired about a fan to be told that I would need to purchase one, so I did knowing that some air blowing on me would be better than none. The rooms did have windows that opened and also a ceiling fan, but the ceilings were high, and there was no air moving. I recognized that I was not special nor was I the only person in that situation. However, sleeping in the heat is very challenging, especially when you are not accustomed to it.

I chose to view it as a learning experience and even a test coming from the “spiritual broadcasting system.” As the hours passed and I was alone with myself, I questioned why I was there having this experience and the answer I received was simply put, “because you are.” I was having a meltdown literally and figuratively speaking.

Be not afraid of discomfort. If you can’t put yourself in a situation where you are uncomfortable, then you will never grow.
You will never change. You’ll never learn.
~ Jason Reynolds

Yes, I could have left the grounds and sought another cooler place to stay, but I chose to stay put because I’m not a quitter. When I commit to something, I follow through. My emotions were running high, and I honored each thought and feeling as they arose.

After sleeping just a short time, I decided to get up and walk the grounds before it was daylight. As dawn approached, I felt more at peace with my presence.

A dear friend helped to shift my perspective a few hours later. She had studied there several decades ago and more than likely stayed in the same accommodations. Her response to my “having a meltdown” text was powerful! She conveyed, “Meltdown? Why? Feeling alone? Outside comfort zone? You are strong and a soldier for Spirit and women. [You are] an independent woman with all the strength of the past spiritual seekers on a pilgrimage to explore all that is. This year teaches you the value of both home and travel, and they are both part of the wonderful life of a mystical seeker. Make the most of it as you can. Think of it like a sweat lodge retreat 24 hours a day with weight loss, cleansing and Spirit!”

I smiled and realized she was absolutely right!!!! The next night seemed to be a bit easier. On Sunday, I made the conscious choice to drive back to Indianapolis to stay in an air-conditioned hotel close to the airport, and I am so grateful I did!
