I first started learning mantras and affirmations. I would put them up on my bathroom mirror so I could read them as my day began.
I find I had to find a way to learn to keep peace in my heart. I knew no-one else could create it for me, so I just had to do it!
This is one of the 1st I loved which was because it is so simplistic. It’s called Peace begins with me….
You can say out this mantra out-loud or in your mind by using particular hand gestures.
Breathe deeply, in and out, as you say each word…
When you touch your index finger, say: PEACE.
When you touch your middle finger, say: BEGINS.
When you touch your ring finger, say: WITH.
When you touch your pinky finger, say: ME.
Repeat this at least three times (or more if you wish) to start noticing the shift in your energy.
Now even though I found this practice was so simple, I learned by doing it and researching why this work, is that we are altering our brain waves to shift our focus from our thoughts of anxiety, fear or frustration to our true nature which is peace. So next time you encounter a situation where somebody ticked you off or you hear the news that disturbed you, repeat this mantra to yourself.
The ego will tell you when everything falls in place, I’ll find peace. But the spirit knows that it is only when you find your peace, that everything else will fall in place.
