6 easy ways to regain peace of mind.
Peace of mind is the holy grail in these chaotic busy times. If you can maintain a calm serenity in your day, then life is so much easier. Here are six simple actions you can take to encourage more peace of mind. I have found them incredibly helpful this year especially when I am out of sorts, exhausted and stressed.
1) Get organised.
Getting much more organised has improved my quality of life immensely this year. I have done this by starting to plan more effectively. I found that I constantly had a “to do” list bouncing around my head. Even if I had written down a list down for the day, there were always more things popping into my head about future events. This did not encourage a peaceful mind!
2) Avoid or reduce exposure to television and radio news.
Tapping can seem a little strange at first, but it’s an effective way to quickly shift dense energy, uncomfortable emotions and stress in the body. Tapping ranges from the simple (eg. tapping with the fingers on the thymus gland area at the top of the sternum to stimulate immunity and increase life energy) to a more extensive round of tapping on acupressure points to fully free up a limiting pattern or trapped emotion (eg. A round of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or energy routine by Donna Eden). If you are new to EFT watch the video below with Jessica Ortner to get an introduction to the technique and much more information at her website
5) Conscious Breathing
Meditation is being hugely promoted at the moment – for good reason. It benefits us in so many ways physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. However, it doesn’t have to be a complicated technique or a strenuous activity taking immense concentration. Keep it really simple. Meditation can be just taking a few aware breaths into your belly whilst on a five minute work break. Even if you are a complete beginner and your brain is overactive with a million thoughts, this simple act will relax and restore you. If there is still background noise happening in your mind, don’t worry. At least you are still bringing conscious awareness to the breath for a few moments. This will calm stress hormones and increase oxygenation to the body as the breath becomes slower and deeper. With practice, this time can be extended, or you can just try to incorporate these moments of conscious breathing into your day numerous times. This will bring more peace of mind and it also feels good! For more simple meditation and breathing techniques, coming soon … my post on source meditation.
6) Get Grounded
Getting barefoot feels so damn good, it’s often a mystery to me why I don’t do it more often. When I was travelling in Australia, I was barefoot the majority of the time while staying in a particular hostel for three months. My feet started to become more robust and my health was the best it has ever been. Yes, the weather was often great, but more than that, being barefoot was more socially acceptable. It wasn’t unusual to see people barefoot in the supermarket or the street. Okay, I admit this was in the rather eclectic Byron Bay and not Sydney city centre but the point is that it was acceptable to walk around without shoes and it felt great. We spend so much of our lives insulated from the earth’s energies and we need those energies to be healthy and well.
When astronauts first went into space, they became physically unwell as they were no longer exposed to the Schumann frequencies of the earth. This frequency emission (originally measured at 7.83Hz) is now installed in the spacecraft so that the astronauts stay well. The Schumann frequency is the frequency of the earth’s ionosphere. However, mother earth herself has her own healing frequencies and magnetic field. According to the HeartMath Institute, the Earth’s magnetic field carries biologically relevant information that connects all living systems. When we constantly insulate ourselves from that connection by wearing rubber soles and rarely sitting on the earth, we miss out on an enormously beneficial healing relationship. I feel so much better when I just get barefoot on the earth for 10 minutes.
However, another way to more consciously ground to earth’s energy is to do a simple visualisation. This allows us to let go of tension and stress and let that be absorbed by the huge living being that is our home. And once we have let go of all that density, we can then consciously ask for and allow earth’s beautiful healing frequencies to come back up into our bodies, revitalising and renewing us. How wonderful that we have this beautiful relationship with the planet available to us in every moment. After all, we come from the earth and we will return to her. Coming soon: a grounding meditation with solfeggio frequencies to bring you back into balance.
