“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
It’s not hard to develop the basic tools, abilities and concepts to clear and calm the mind. Awakening your inner power is not something to be rushed into lightly. This is a path from which there is no turning back. You are going to see, feel and experience things that most people don’t even believe in and some of those things are going to be unpleasant (to say the least!). When you start digging into your inner self you are going to have to deal with whatever you find.
You’ll learn how to cleanse and harmonize your body, mind and spirit; develop the attitudes to handle anything that life throws at you and learn to reset your basic programming to help you get the results you want from your life.
You will use these skills and exercises every day for the rest of your life, so the more time you spend here now the easier the more advanced exercises will be.
It’s Already There
The first point I want to make is that you already have inner peace, everyone does. The problem is that our human body, the interface between this world and the Universe, tends to provide us with a lot of distractions. The simplest way to find your own inner peace is to learn to let go of the distractions.
Energy exists in two ways – On and Off. Esther Hicks continually states “There is only a stream of well-being” and I agree. It’s like light; there isn’t a natural force called Dark. Darkness is simply the absence of light. When you allow light to shine you have illumination, when you block it you have shadow or less illumination. Energy works the same way. When you allow it, it flows. When you block it, it stops.
The distractions that block inner peace are simply blocks to your energy. Some of these blocks may be mental or emotional, some physical and some may even be spiritual. For the most part getting rid of these blocks can be very easy. With a little bit of training and a lot of practice just about anyone can release their energy blocks and find deeper levels of inner peace.
Releasing energy blocks can be a very gradual process for some people and fairly explosive for others. This is why I caution people who are new to meditation or energy work. Energy blocks are energy, and energy can’t be created or destroyed. When you release those blocks from your system that energy has to go somewhere and it may manifest as anger, pain, joy, happiness or any other emotion. Ask any massage therapist, acupuncturist or healer and they’ll regale you with stories of clients who had uncontrollable fits of laughter or bouts of inconsolable crying during healing sessions. In many cases the client had no idea why they were having this emotional outburst simply that the feeling came on so strongly and they couldn’t resist it.
The release of an energy block can affect every part of your life and in many cases has provided the catalyst for people to make life altering steps in jobs, home life, relationships or just about any other part of life. Fortunately there is a safety mechanism built in to our bodies. Generally it takes some consistent effort to release these blocks and when you make that effort through meditation then frequently you’ll have the guidance to manage the effects of the energy release.
