Peace is a something we all seek. Although there is a lot of conflict around the world, in counties & even in our own relationships – peace is a possibility. We affect all the energy around us with our consciousness and our actions.
If we want a reality of peace, we need to have a consciousness of peace. This must be the place we reside in. Even when life is throwing us reasons to react. Take a pause, remember your commitment to peace, and come from that space rather then the immediate momentary need to react. Most of our reactions come from a place of fear, but if we choose love, then peace will be the result.
Real peace is unconditional. It doesn’t care who did what to whom. It doesn’t depend on us being comfortable. It doesn’t rely on feelings and it doesn’t come just when it’s easy to be peaceful like the moment after a yoga class, and then at other times the idea of peace goes racing out the door when life gets tough. Life is filled with daily challenges but peace is available to us, it is our choice. We cannot control life, but we can control our reactions to what is brought before us.
When we can see the light that exists in all beings – and that everyone one of us is here for a reason – then peace will have a chance.

People often ask me how can I be more happy, the number one thing is : gratitude. When we are focused on what we are grateful for in detail then a warm feeling envelops us, we feel happy and calm. When we think about what we are lacking, what we don’t have, anxiety sets in. Take a moment to think about what in your life you feel grateful for …visualize the things that make you feel love
husband / wife / boyfriend / girlfriend
good food on my plate
time for myself
Whatever they are, really let that energy soak within you, and watch the feeling that comes over you. This is something you can do anytime you feel anxiety washing over you, come back to gratitude, it’s the attitude that will change you in a few minutes back to a happy place!
People often ask me if happiness is a choice or something they can learn to feel. Happiness comes from when you are feeling aligned with the present moment. The present is all we have, when we are wanting something, we are not happy. How often do we find ourselves wanting something only to get it and want something more. So “getting our desires met” is only a temporary solution to happiness. True Happiness come form within. So it is a choice, and the more we choose to be grateful for what it is we do have in the present moment, we can actually change the the chemisty of the brain. Just like a puppy can be trained to “sit” we can train our monkey minds to find stillness in the present moment and feel happiness. Mediation is a wonderful way to feel our true nature which is happiness….how we get there has many avenues. I find that chanting a mantra, a sacred word is something that is powerful for lulling my brain into a relaxed state. One powerful mantra for happiness is:
Lokah: The location of all universes existing at this moment
Samastah: All beings living in this location
Sukhino: In happiness, joy and free from all suffering
Bhav: The divine mood or state of union
Antu: May it be so
MAY ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE BE HAPPY AND FREE
So try this mantra every morning or anytime of day you need to reconnect to spirit and watch that cloud of unhappiness disappear…I promise you will feel a clearing in the mind chatter and connect to peace which is ultimately happiness! Blessings xxo
