How to access your inner peace in 9 steps
Hard times require greater confidence, motivation, focus and self-esteem. But the truth is that we are not always able to live up to the challenges that life brings us. Sometimes, we feel tired, sad, afraid and, in some situations, our inner strength weakens, leading us to want to give up. The traumatic experiences that we live make us falter and, many times, question what we are. When this happens, the time has come to access our inner strength and manifest our essence. In this article, we will talk about how you can access your inner peace and suggest some practices.
We know that each person, even if behind a smile, faces their own battles. And the weight of each fight varies depending on the experiences and the sensitivity of each one. However great the difficulties to be overcome, our inner strength does not abandon us. It is a kind of sacred place, where we can find the most varied tools to transform less good situations into enriching learning experiences.
When we face difficult times that challenge us, it is necessary to access our inner strength and enter this sacred garden, where we can rest and feed on its fruits. Only then can we face the storms, many of them spiritual, and continue on our journey towards our purpose. But how is it possible to access this inner strength, capable of restoring our being?
9 habits to access your inner peace
1. Accept not to hurt
The first step to access your inner peace is acceptance. Accept what we are, who surrounds us and also what happens to us. Sometimes, we think that we do not deserve certain reactions from people or some setbacks in life.
When we think like that, we end up holding some feelings within us that weaken our inner strength. You have to understand that bad things happen to good people and move on.
Accept that the world is constantly changing and nothing is permanent. Accepting who you are, in your divine essence, and remembering that you are not your job, your car, your marriage or the number that appears on the scale also helps not to hold grudges.
2. Take care of your soul and body
Practice self-love and take care of your soul and body. Read uplifting books that contribute to your spiritual evolution and eat healthily. Do exercises that respect your body’s rhythm.
Nourish a healthy vanity and invest in your appearance, taking care of your nails, hair and face. Feel the beauty that exists both inside and outside and see how through that feeling you can access your inner strength.
3. You can rest but never give up
The path is long and life is short, the poet said. It’s natural that along our walk, it is sometimes necessary to slow down and even stop in some circumstances so as not to run out of air. But the rest should serve to gain breath and regain strength, never to give up.
From time to time, pause the world and take the time to breathe easily. As you inhale and exhale, look within and throw away everything that does not belong to you.
4. Kindness and humility
Be kind and humble not only with others, but with yourself as well. Be lighter in the judgments and don’t blame yourself for what, in your view, didn’t work. Each of us does the best we can and if we don’t, it’s because we don’t know how to yet. Be kind to yourself and view your mistakes as a learning process because, in fact, that is exactly what they are.
The less critical you are to yourself, the more easily you will accept others’ mistakes. This does not mean being permissive, it just means that you have developed enough humility to recognize that all of us, without exception, are exposed to failure.
5. Prioritize and don’t worry
Excess is part of our daily lives and, for many, the rush is a constant. Not infrequently, there are too many tasks, demands that multiply and obligations that never end.
To want to embrace all the challenges that appear to us is, at the very least, exhausting. In addition to leading us to the path of frustration, it is very difficult to access our inner strength when we allow ourselves to be in situations that disrespect our well-being.
In these circumstances, the solution is simple: prioritize. Respect your own pace and set priorities. That is, do the best you can, but do not overload yourself, neither physically nor energetically.
6. Allow yourself to feel
What we resist, persists. Letting it flow is the best way to deal with feelings and thoughts. In many cases we suffer because we cling to the thoughts that arise in our mind and, worse, we believe them. For your well-being, don’t do this.
Become aware of your thoughts and feelings, but don’t get attached to them. Whenever a more negative thought arises, acknowledge it, feel it and let it go. Don’t believe everything your mind produces. The same is true of feelings. Feel, but don’t feed what you don’t want to harvest. Otherwise, you may end up poisoning it.
7. Assume your responsibilities
Do not give in to the temptation to victimize yourself. Do not assume yourself as a victim, be a warrior, a light worker. Take responsibility for your actions and take charge of your life. React to situations according to your Truth and build the present you want to live in.
8. Empathy: put yourself in other’s shoes
We are not alone in the world. We are all part of a perfect plan. Think about how you can be useful in your community and take action. If you need help, ask and if you can help, help.
When we take the focus off ourselves and find genuine motivation to help others, we give free access to the Universe to take care of our pains and heal our scars.
9. Everything flows
Remember: until now you have survived the most difficult days of your life. So, most likely, when you feel more tired or confused, depressed or sad, it is just a phase. The way you feel in certain situations does not define your life. Its existence is much greater than the setbacks, dislikes and setbacks that, believe me, we all face. The good and the bad pass, the happy and unhappy days too.
Now that you have discovered the main habits that help you access your inner peace, put them into practice. Try for 21 days and see how it’s possible to enter the sacred garden that exists within you.
