'May we continue to learn and grow from our history'
- Ms. Love
Key words :
Peace ; Freedom from disturbance; tranquility.
Protect ; To defend or guard from disturbance.
Ever feel an innate instinct to protect someone or something? And not in a defensive or narcissistic way, but simply protecting for the purpose of peace and fairness for all. That's human.
We have come a long way as a society. There is a common ground in maintaining safe spaces where peace is a priority for sustaining our health and well-being. The pandemic has opened our eyes further to the issues of health being directly linked to the spaces we go, physically and mentally. Keeping our spaces centered on nurturing our mind, body, and spirit improves our ability to be more self aware and rooted on a solid foundation.
We understand that circumstances aren't always peaceful and our peace has been taunted, compromised, and disturbed on several occasions in the past, but our future doesn't have to be that way. As people, we learn the process of maintaining calmness in growing up and becoming an untethered soul.
Here's a 3 step process that can help find and protect our peace.
1. Use your 5 senses to define what peace is or could be for you.
For example, what does peace sound, taste, feel, look, and even smell like!
2. 10 minute meditation
- Close your eyes and mentally visualize a space or spaces that align with what is peaceful -
For example: Beach waves and an organized event is peaceful to me.
FG Tip - Do your best to take at least 10 deep breathes throughout the meditation.
3. Make a move in a more positive direction
- Write down something YOU CAN do now to lean into your peace.
For example: 'Plan for a day at the beach'
According to wikipedia, Peace is a concept of societal friendship and harmony in the absence of hostility and violence. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or groups.
