Daily Angel Oracle Card: Peace Of Mind, from the Healing With The Fairies, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
Peace Of Mind: “Make peacefulness your highest priority. Commit to taking steps to ensure peace of mind, and take those steps without delay.”
Peace Of Mind is not something you have to earn or acquire, since your true self is already peaceful. Instead, it requires being like a sculptor with a block of marble, who works with this material until the inner masterpiece is revealed. If you will make peace of mind your main focus, you will inevitably feel a great sense of relief.
Steps that create peace of mind include being honest with yourself, living according to your inner guidance, being helpful and kind to others, practicing meditation or yoga, eating only healthful foods, avoiding toxins, maintaining healthy sleep habits, avoiding negative people and media, surrendering your problems to God, communing with nature, simplifying your life, and saying no when you need to.”
“My mind is now peaceful
and I know that all of my needs
are automatically taken care of.
I can rest easily, assured that all is well.”*
~ Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
The state of peace of mind is the polar opposite to anxiousness or worrying. It means detaching from the drama and letting go of expectations, particularly when you are feeling most out of control. When you feel it is the most challenging time to find your peace of mind, of course, the time that you need it most.
Take heart, Dear One, your breath is the bridge to Divine Peace. Breathing deeply calms and centers your body on a physiological level, which will help you to slow down and take the time to reconnect your body, mind and spirit. If it is difficult to still your mind, try counting your breath cycles of fours. Count slowly to four on your inhale, following the breath coming in through your nose and down into your belly or even right down into your feet and grounding through the floor into the Earth. Hold your full inhale for the count of four. Exhale slowly counting from four back to one, feeling the breath coming back up from the Earth, straight up through your spine and out your crown chakra, connecting to the Universe. Hold empty for the count of four. Do this until you feel calm and connected from the Earth to the Cosmos. Return to this breathing exercise whenever you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, filled with fear or doubt or even just to return to a peaceful state. The more you repeat the breathing exercise, the better you will become at it, and the faster your body and mind will respond. Try incorporating it into every day, even if you only do four breath cycles at a time. You will not believe the difference it will make to your peace of mind. I promise!
Lastly, if you are really struggling with the worries, you must retrain your brain. This is what affirmations do, particularly when used on a daily basis. Another trick that I use with my daughter, (who can get a case of the worries), is to breathe her worry into an imaginary balloon, letting it go out into the Universe. As soon as the worry is blown into the balloon, she replaces this thought with an affirmation. I have seen her secretly using this trick and the results it brings her are amazing. She says that she imagines that she blows her worry in to the balloon and then ties it up really tightly; then lets it go. As it flies up into the sky, she sees the angels come to take it. Then she holds her simple affirmation in her head. When the angels take it the worry out of the balloon, they beam bright white love and light back down to her, which magically activates the affirmation, making it a thousand times more powerful!
Worth a try I’d say!
Blessings, love and light.
