Inner peace means a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace. It doesn’t mean that there is no noise or adversity, It means to be in midst of all those and still feel the peace and calmness in your heart.
When we are calm, our Chakras and energies are more balanced; we are more grounded.
Grounding is a great way to reconnect the energy of your body with the earth and give your mind a rest from constant thinking. This meditation is ideal if you want to have a more restful sleep, if you want to wake up more gently, or if you need a reconnection to some power during the day. It’s also great for letting go of any stress.
Here is how practicing tapping into your inner peace can help you stay grounded:
- Boosts your self-worth: When you feel peaceful, you will be able to trust yourself more often and feel confident being yourself in any situation
- Helps you to handle stress: Inner peace offers you calmness which helps you avoid mental health issues like stress, anxiety, and unnecessary worries. You will gradually develop patience and become capable enough to tolerate every possible thing
- Reduces mental and physical illness: Psychological peace helps you to stay healthy both physically and mentally at the same time and thus reduces mental and physical illness.
- Increases your Happy Meter: When you start living a peaceful lifestyle, you gradually start welcoming happiness to your life. Your peaceful heart can make you happy over every little thing. It can also help you to share happiness with the people around you.
- Reduces negative thoughts: Sometimes your negative thoughts are mostly responsible for your stressful and peace-less life. Inner peace helps you to avoid negative thoughts which leads you to a positive and peaceful life.
- Improves focus: Your peaceful life can help you concentrate on what you want and what you don’t. It makes it easy for you to stay focused on your own goals.
Where do we start to find this inner peace?
The easiest and fastest way to begin is with your breathing.
Breathwork is the foundation for your inner peace and grounding
Your breath is one of your most powerful healing resources. For instance, deep, slow, and rhythmic whole-body breathing can reduce anxiety, fear, pain, and; activate your immune system; increase your ability to concentrate; and release healing and “feel-good” hormones, such as serotonin and oxytocin.
Practicing Deep Breathing:
Deep breathing activates your parasympathetic nervous system and a rest-renew-heal response, ultimately helping you feel relaxed, in control of your experience, and connected with yourself and the world. Once you become aware of your breathing patterns, you can start to make changes that help you stay balanced.
Creating Inner Peace- 4 Steps for Breathe Awareness:
- Step 1 Observe your breath in any life situation and pay attention to whether it is free or restricted, shallow or deep, slow or fast, etc.
- Step 2 Notice what kinds of thoughts, feelings, and emotions you have when you go through these different breathing patterns.
- Step 3 Observe these feelings, emotions, and thoughts without trying to fix, change, understand, visualize, transform, heal or manipulate them in any way.
- Step 4 Feel every present moment in your breath unconditionally and experience life without any analysis or judgment.
To help you get started; below is an easy breathing technique that you can daily practice.
Belly Breathing Technique:
- Find a comfortable, quiet place to sit or lie down. For example, try sitting in a chair, sitting cross-legged, or lying on your back with a small pillow under your head and under your knees.
- Place one hand on your upper chest and the other hand on your belly, below the ribcage.
- Allow your belly to relax, without forcing it inward by squeezing or clenching your muscles.
- Breathe in slowly through your nose. The air should move into your nose and downward so that you feel your stomach rise with your other hand and fall inward (toward your spine).
- Exhale slowly through slightly pursed lips. Take note of the hand on your chest, which should remain relatively still.
- Although the sequence frequency will vary according to your health, most people begin by doing the exercise three times and working up to five to 10 minutes, one to four times a day.
In ancient traditions breath was like a golden vessel, the gateway between the visible and invisible world, a bridge between the spiritual and physical, essential for its healing properties, inner peace, and life transformation. By creating a conscious relationship with breath, we are creating a conscious relationship with the present moment and inner peace.
