As I read the Daily Word this morning I was struck by the reading on inner peace. After all the hustle, bustle of the holidays, what a lovely calming thought to reflect on. Here are some helpful suggestions I took away from the reading. I found a quiet place, relaxed into the silence, calmed my mind by closing my eyes, focusing on my breath and resting in the stillness, the peace, the quiet. Soon I felt a sense of inner peace and contentment and I repeated the words all is well, all is well and all is well. I could feel the peace deep within my soul. From this restorative place I felt renewed, refreshed and ready to begin my day with a sense of purpose. “Peace restores and energizes me to do what is mine to do. Peace within me; peace around me.” – Daily Word
What about you? What can you do today to calm and center yourself? Where is your quiet place? What is the message whispering in your ear in the silence?
I invite you to join me at my next retreat The Transformative Gift of Silence, Listening Beneath the Noise, at Carondelet Center in St Paul on February 20, 2016. I invite you to step back and claim this time for yourself so you can reconnect with the inner peace within you. Details are on my website.
