Do you want peace?
Do you want to feel a REAL experience of calm inside?
If so, try this:
Step 1. Identify whatever idea you are holding onto that’s preventing you from feeling peace right now in this moment – name it.
Step 2. Make believe you can let it go. What would it be like if that thought DIDN’T EXIST? How would you feel without that idea? What would your life be like without that thought?
Now…. right now… do you feel peace?
If not, then you have more to let go of. DO IT NOW.
First name it, and then let go of the thoughts that are causing upset.
Feel inside now. Can you feel the absence of upset? That’s peace.
Can you feel a clean, fresh feeling? Take a deep breath of it. That’s peace.
What would you give up to keep this feeling of peace? What would you be willing to do to stay peaceful? (Hint: If you want to keep the feeling of peace, don’t allow your upsetting thoughts to come back and play in your mind. Just say, “I’ve had enough of you.”)
I know what you’re thinking, “Paige, this is DUMB. How will erasing my upsetting thought give me lasting peace? Isn’t that “spiritual bypass? Isn’t that “denial”? It’s still a problem in my life! I can’t just quit life and sit on a mountaintop! I’ve got real challenges!”
The Fine Print
Every time you allow yourself a break from the anxious thinking (it has to be a true break), you rewire your brain and make space for more feelings of calm. Every attempt you make is BUILDING UPON THE LAST. So, you are actually creating forward movement every time you remember to let go. Peace is built one moment at a time. Today, you might live without your worrisome thoughts once. Tomorrow, you may rest from your anxieties twice. The next day you might practice taking a break four times, and so on.
But don’t worry about tomorrow or the next day. Just sit for a minute NOW and imagine what it would feel like for your worry to magically disappear… as if you had a magic wand!
WHO ARE YOU without your fear, worry, anxiety or trouble?
