On a more global level, there is a world conscious energy grid fed by vibrations of love but often times the energy is rooted in fear of lack, separation, competitiveness and superiority. It is this fearful vibe that rears its ugly head in the form of wars, environmental destruction, religious conflicts or economic greed.
Many have forgotten that we are all energetically connected and that we are not separated by culture, border or a body of water. We all contribute to the well being of the earth and the state of human kind by the vibrations that we emit to this global energy grid as we consciously or unconsciously choose to live our lives.
What energetic vibration are we sending out each day? Is our inner world just adding to the chaos of the outer world around us?
If you want to gift yourself and the world with the best, most lasting and far reaching gift ever at a very affordable price, then seek the gift of inner peace. Its energetic vibration is very high and guaranteed to uplift all who come in contact with the bearer of this coveted prize. From a state of inner peace, you acquire the freedom to be your true, loving and authentic self and can respond to life from the heart, a place of love rather than the ego or mind and its place of fear. This does not mean that you sit and meditate all day but rather you view and act on problems and formulate solutions from the vantage point of your highest good and the highest good of those around you. You seek a win-win solution and not the goal of being right and making someone else wrong.
This gift requires no monetary amount to purchase however it does requires the willingness to practice the following to obtain and maintain its vitality and efficacy:
Consciously breathe - Concentrate on breathing in and out when you need to centre yourself, release stress and divert your attention inward. Our breath is our human connection to our spiritual soul.
Be present in the moment - respond to challenges as they happen based on what is happening in the Now. Don't cloud your present focus with regrets about the past, "what ifs" of the future or distract yourself with entertainment, food or drink. Step back and witness your thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. Take that deep breath and centre yourself and focus in on your heart. Allow your true self to bubble to the surface in the form of creativity, inspiration and intuition and then act accordingly.
Make time for solitude - block out the noise of life and check in with yourself. Are you nourishing all aspects of yourself (mind/body/spirit) or is there an imbalance? You were born a complete spiritual being in a human body filled with love and creative energy - have you forgotten who you are? Get re-acquainted through play, laughter and passionate pursuits.
The gift of inner peace is of universal benefit. It is a perfect gift for the dis-eases of the world. With a sense of inner peace, we are better able to let go of outcomes and expectations. We are better able to nurture both ourselves and the group consciousness of the world by creating a ripple of energy vibrating with powerful unconditional love.
The song "Let there be Peace on Earth" by Jill Jackson Miller and Sy Miller written in 1955 came to mind as I wrote this blog and is well worth taking a listen to.
