In my latest blog I wrote about experiencing unity consciousness. Now I ‘d like to talk about what can help you in this quest. The answer is inner peace. But this is something that doesn’t just fall into your lap. You have to desire it and be willing to do something for it.
Inner peace has to do with what you feel deep inside. It is not about obvious emotions that occupy you. It is about an underlying inner certainty. It does not impose itself and is only there that you tune into it and align with it. Nor is it a standard experience: your inner self is agile and will surprise you again and again.
Because inner peace is invisible yet experiential, you can think about it in terms of energy, of vibration. Seeking and experiencing inner peace is a very subtle process. You may calmly spend time on it. This pays off, because you start to realize what inner peace is all about. And you can be sure that your stillness contributes to the much-desired peace on Earth.
For this blog, I found inspiration in Karen Noë’s book, “We Consciousness : 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace” (2018). Karen Noë is an experienced medium who channels messages from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, the American spiritual coach and author of several bestselling books who passed away in 2015. Since then, he has been working with Noë from Beyond, to continue to spread his messages of peace to humanity.
In my view, it is very special that someone who inspired so many in life, continues after his death – along with kindred spirits like Francis of Assisi – to spread this essential passion for love, optimism, and peace. In doing so, he introduces people to the idea of ‘spiritual immortality’ (my term). “You are an ever-living soul with a temporary body on Earth,” rather than “you are only a body that ceases to exist when it dies.”
If you are willing to open yourself up to the consequences of spiritual immortality – which for Wayne Dyer and Karen Noë is a truth beyond any doubt – a phase begins in which new horizons will appear before you. To come this far, everything in your life matters right now: the ways in which you think, feel, and act, as well as how you express the qualities of your inner self.
I hear some people say, “yes, in principle I do believe or know, but there are so many things that hold me back – bad experiences from the past, the ‘stamps’ that burden me, Corona issues, the opportunities I have missed, my responsibilities, my physical ailments, etc. How does ‘spiritual immortality’ have anything at all to do with my life at this moment?”
EVERYTHING. If you are convinced of – or hope for – spiritual immortality, begin to own this potential truth, for example by affirming, ‘My soul has always been here and will always be here. I will live on after my body has died.’ Give this statement ample loving attention, and there’s a good chance you’ll begin to feel more at peace internally.
Help yourself by incorporating a daily moment of introspection: breathing exercises, energy exercises, yoga, meditation, etc. Feel what works best for you. This is the case when an exercise helps you raise or refine your vibration. You will naturally begin to sense when that is happening, because higher and finer vibrations allow you to rest within yourself and evoke sensations of unconditional love, peace, and joy.
Do not, however, simply expect peak experience to occur during your practice routine – it can happen, but it does not have to. It is about preparing your body, your nervous system, and your energy pathways for the opening of deeper layers within yourself. Then, special experiences may present themselves at any time. Such experiences just happen to you, you cannot call them up yourself.
You can indeed be happy when a new balance presents itself, a balance proving that you are on the right track. Openness to what is happening around you and within you leads to a dynamic balance in your person and fosters inner peace. Best of luck!
