Are you choosing Panic or Peace?

I must admit when I see people post political issues on Facebook that I often get sucked into it. I’ve been known to repost them as well. I apologize. My intention here is to promote peace. To promote or offer others the option of living in A Beautiful State, A Beautiful Peaceful State.  Sometimes we feel helpless. It’s ok to feel it. Then breathe and choose something else. Re-direct your attention.


Over the past 35 years I have explored and experimented with many spiritual paths, self-help courses, and various healing modalities. I’m also becoming more aware of where I place peoples’ attention. Am I adding to pain and suffering in the world or am I offering more peace? My own inner peace? The Inner Peace of those around me?


Two weeks ago I woke up in a panic attack. I’ve not really experienced these in my life and immediately went to something that would relieve it. No. It wasn’t the beer that would have been my choice in my 20’s or 30’s. I chose to Tap. Yes. EFT Tapping. (EFT is Emotional Freedom Technique) I experienced relief in less than 5 minutes. If you don’t know much about it, check out where there are many resources, including the science behind it, and many free guided meditations so you can also feel some relief from the stresses of life and the current happenings in the world.

I’m very involved in the Oneness Blessing Community around the globe. The daily meditations and practices have also opened a deeper sense of inner peace for me. My connection to my Higher Sacred Self, Intuition, Inner Knowing or whatever you call it for yourself, has also increased dramatically in the past few years. As a Onenes Trainer I’ve felt like I’ve had to be perfect before I share my journey. I’m now realizing that I will never be perfect. I can be authentic, but not perfect. Then I can breathe and feel what’s happening in the moment. Breathe again and choose. Am I choosing to live in a Stressful State or A Beautiful State?


When we can look at anything happening around us, maybe feel the anger and upset, but not be caught up in it and feel trapped by it, then we can choose to place our attention on peace, on living in A Beautiful State. Then we can be a bright beacon of light, a beacon of hope, a grounded, peaceful Being. That inner peace ripples into the world and offers others the option of living in peace.


So go ahead. Read the news article. Listen to the news. But then take 3 deep breaths and decide for yourself whether you want to life in stress and panic, or live in Peace, A Beautiful State. It really can be this easy.
