10 steps to Inner Peace and Harmony

  1. Intention: When you get up in the morning, say with enthusiasm, “This is a great day!”
  2. Clean the clutter: Your home should be a sanctuary from the outside world’s chaos. Deal with mail as it comes in and discard or donate what you do not need. Your piled excess may be another’s treasure. Repurpose what you can.
  3. Date yourself: Pursue what makes your heart sing. If necessary, get up an hour earlier when the house is quiet.
  4. Exercise: Keep the body moving for good health. Choose a variety of activities that you enjoy. Make it playtime.
  5. Face your fears:  We make our own jails. Most worries never happen. Precious time and energy that could have been spent pursuing your passions are lost forever. Fear and Love cannot coexist. Choose loving thoughts.
  6. Gratitude: At least once a week, write ten items for which you are thankful. Alternative: Go over them in your mind while exercising.
  7. Self-love: Stop the negative narrative in your head. You are perfect.   
  8. No comparison: Stop comparing yourself to others. You are on your own journey. Follow your heart without worrying what other people think.
  9. Empathy: Put yourself in the other guy’s shoes. Be kind, compassionate and serve humanity in your own gifted way.
  10. Focus: Look for good and beauty. As per Dr. Wayne Dyer, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Be Still

“Be still!” No entertainment.

Punishment

“Sit there and think about it!”

Tedium

 

Worldwide virus halts the train

Stuck inside

Forced to face our inner fears

Panic spreads

 

Look around at status quo

Comforting

New days dawn, the birds still sing

Flowers bloom

 

Time to chill, step off the wheel

Wait the storm

Meditate, appreciate

Inner peace

What If?

What if the worst were to happen?

Would the sky fall?

Would the rock beneath you crumble?

Swallow you whole?

 

Frightening stories imagined

Anxious, worried

Most horrific never transpire

Energy lost

 

Negative thoughts consume the mind

Pilfer the joy

Magic, love, abundance life grants

Illness prevails

 

Challenges will test the mettle

View with open heart

What if the best were to happen?

What if……..
