We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside regardless of what is happening outside.
ATTITUDINAL HEALING PRINCIPLE # 8
(NOTE: TO SEE ALL THE 12 PRINCIPLES OF ATTITUDINAL HEALING SEE BLOG POST OF MARCH 15, 2018.)
Personal Note: I am reminded that Attitudinal Healing is a “Process” and I realize that I am learning something new as I re-learn and remember that…LOVE is the answer…and my only goal is inner peace. I hope this is still worthwhile for you, also. With peace and love, Susan Thiem
PEACE OF MIND AND MIRACLES!
Can we really choose to be peaceful no matter what? Really? Is my only goal inner peace? This is the ultimate goal of Attitudinal Healing (AH). Inner peace comes from knowing that we have the POWER to CHOOSE our attitude in any situation. We do have that power! Did you know that?
My only Goal is Inner Peace.
I have already told you about a story of being with a “boyfriend” on a New Year’s Eve at his place and he got angry with me for what I perceived as a simple question I asked. I was devastated that New Year’s was ruined and I went into a bedroom and cried; I was in my worldly, ego-based, fear place. Even though I was a pretty new student of AH, I soon realized I could “choose peace instead of this” stress and disappointment.
We bring peace to any situation when we bring a peaceful mind, which comes from love, so I changed my focus to my loving God, asked for help, and felt peace. So now I got a second chance to go back to my friend (realizing Principle #12 as well…that he was giving a call for help/love) and I came from a place of understanding and love with him now. (Also, I determined my boundaries for the evening as I have a right to do, from a loving place, for myself.) He became calm and loving and we had a good evening together as I gave up the “past” hour and lived in the moment. I chose to be peaceful “in the now”, instead of being “right” and staying angry and disappointed. I have had many situations to practice this principle in my life in the past few years.
Whenever we change our minds…
from conflict to peace and
from fear to love … we have a miracle!!!
CONNECTION AND CHOICE
As we see in the story above, I found my peace in this relationship issue by connecting to spirit and connecting in love with this other person. Peace of mind is a result of healing our emotional wounds through giving up all thoughts of separation with our Godly spirit and each other, which is the essence of our being. Inner peace and the experience of love is found when we CHOOSE to quiet our minds (and actions) and truly WANT to experience peace in our minds. Our inner peace comes when we know we have the power to choose our attitude in ANY situation…when we bring a peaceful mind to the incident…in that moment, and also when we go into our thoughts of our “past” and choose to see them differently, with forgiveness (Principle #6) and a peaceful mind, in the moment; moment by moment.
SECOND CHANCE (song*)
I got a second chance to be the best that I can be
I got a second chance to show the world a loving me
I thought I was a victim of my circumstance
But I see clearly since I got a second chance.
I got a second chance to share the love that’s in my heart
I got a second chance to make my world a work of art
My life (or situation) looked like a real disaster as first glance
But things look better since I got a second chance.
I got a second chance to sweeten up my attitude
I got a second chance to live my life in gratitude
A second chance at making love, not war
A second chance to let my spirit soar.
I got a second chance to choose love and embrace the light
And I’m determined that, this time, I’m gonna make things right
Now I see life as a sacred song and dance
I hear life’s music since I got a second chance.
