Finding inner peace is easy, because it’s something that’s already there, it exists inside of you this very moment. But it’s also difficult, because there are so many other things distracting you from inner peace. Depending on your current emotional and mental state, it could be like finding a needle in a haystack.
The good news is that you can make this task a lot easier, even if there’s currently a wild tornado of thoughts and an emotional thunderstorm going on inside yourself. Finding a needle in a haystack is a lot easier if you have a good metal detector. And on this webpage, you’re going to get a kind of “inner peace detector”.
Also realize that inner peace is not about security. A lot of people who want inner peace don’t really want inner peace – they want the absense of fear, and they want to avoid risks. But engaging in life always entails risks. And if you stop taking risks, then you stop living life fully, and that is not what finding inner peace is about. Inner peace is about feeling calm even when faced with obstacles and challenges.
A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.
– A quote by William Shedd.
You find inner peace when you tone down the noise inside of you. When you switch of the inner chatter, when you stop your internal dialogue – that’s when inner peace shines in your face.
Oftentimes we critizice ourselves – we blame of for things that went wrong, for mistakes made. It’s a good thing to accept responsibility – but do it in a mature way, without utilizing negative emotional states. Be a critical thinker, but in a positive way, focused on finding options to solve problems rather than pointing fingers at mistakes.
Our minds are often under the influence of all kinds of forces, both internal and external: desires of all kinds that can turn into cravings or addictions when indulged in intensely enough, regrets about things that could have been, pleasant distractions that allow us to avoid unpleasant tasks or thoughts, and so on.
None of these activities is negative by itself. But if it’s out of control, if it takes away your inner peace, then you might want to change it.
A lot of that is “learned” or “conditioned” – stuff that we picked up somewhere during our childhood and that sticks with us for life – unless we do something about it.
But of course it’s not easy to change lifelong mental habits. There’s a lot of conscious attention and effort required. Or you take the neural shortcut and partner up with your subconscious mind.
You can think of your subconscious mind as a kind of mental command center. It runs all kinds of “programs” like an emotional auto-pilot. With hypnosis you can “re-program” yourself in positive ways. That’s why the hypnosis download to quiten your mind and find your inner peace works so well – just try it for yourself.
