Hello wow time sure does fly I realize I have no written for a few. Time has kept me busy with a new book coming out and being rather busy at work. So I wanted to share something that I have started and that was opening the AZ Peace Clinic. What the Peace Clinic is about is Life Coaching. So give it a visit at www.azpeaceclinic.com It’s all about walking in peace.
Recently a friend of mine asked me why I called it that. Well everyone knows peace is what I live for, and I teach people to walk in peace one-step at a time. I love what peace symbolizes and how it feels. Finding peace isn’t always easy, yet it is necessary to achieve a balance in our life to keep us healthy. How many times have you gotten upset because someone was not doing what you want them to do, or because you are low on money or your spouse isn’t doing what you need them to do. Maybe you are angry at you, your parents, your loved ones your boss. What you know is that your peace is disrupted and you need to feel peace to be peace. So the question is, how do you get peace?
Well there is a great deal of work you need to do to have peace. First, know that you can’t always choose what happens to you, but you can always choose how you feel about it and what you do about it. You don’t have to be defined by the things you did or didn’t do that is just regret and I don’t know about you but I live my life for zero regrets. So one way to find peace is to let go of regret they’re just an excuse to not move forward and keep your peace in the distance.
Try not to obsess over the negative people places or things. Negative people suck you dry. These are the people who live in high drama ot always sick and wanting attention for it, or they are always angry at something or someone. It is exhausting to be around that and robs your energy. If you want peace, then try to stick to the positive people, places and things. Listen to positive news, positive people, positive events. Make positive a priority. Life does get better and better when you choose to make it so.
Another way to come to terms with peace is to walk out of fear. We make fear up. Fear looks like this; what if I lose my job? What if he is cheating on me? What if I get cancer? What if someone breaks my heart? What if I can’t pay rent? What if what is what if? We are an anxious sort aren’t we? Well what if you just stop what ifing and just start telling the truth. Most likely fear is a lie we tell ourselves it is something that has not happened. So stick to the truth and the facts, stay in the now, and you will be walking in peace in no time!
Here is another way to keep the peace, accept pain in your life. Pain is inevitable Pain is a part of life, and life’s pains comes in a variety of ways, death, loss, break ups, upsets, injury. You name it pain comes. But if you accept pain is part of life, you enter a painful situation with peace. See pain is for the living only, it is worth fully accepting and dealing with while you still have a chance.
Here is a quick tip but can be very difficult start accepting what is that you cannot change, you automatically will find peace. But is hard because we think we can change everything, when you stop and think for a moment, all you can do is change yourself and once you get that, that you cannot change your spouse your parents, your friends your boss, once you get that, peace is just a blissful walk.
Gratitude is another way to find peace. Being thankful is walking the peace and being the peace. We we are thankful we are selfless and when we are selfless and take the time to be grateful for everything peace becomes natural as breathing.
Of course mindful meditation is important to achieve all of these steps to peace…and I have no doubt you will be willing to meditate if you know that it brings you the peace you want and need. So we will look at that next blog. For now, this is Dr Tyler Woods saying, walk in peace…
