Finding Inner Peace That Helps With Living A More Fulfilled Life
What has been most important to me these days is finding inner peace that helps with living a more fulfilled life. This was something that came to the forefront of my healing journey and is a lifestyle that I pursue regularly. One of the reasons I seek inner peace is to relieve stressors that life can bring to protect my mental health. One of those stressors more recently has been the safety of my well-being, family, and that of other Black Americans. It is an extremely unhealthy way of living, but it is tough when you are constantly reminded of certain dangers that threatens your safety. I have started to dedicate myself to reversing my way of thinking because thoughts become things. Not only do they become things, but they disrupt the balance, centering, and natural flow of healing your body, mind, and spirit. It perpetuates toxicity that is fear. Because I choose peace over fear, I protect myself from the causes of fear and move towards all the things that bring light and peace within.
I wanted to share with you one of the ways I have developed finding inner peace that helps with living a more fulfilled life. Well, to be frank, it is all spiritual and connected to something much higher than ourselves. Understanding that, I have grown a deeper connection to nature. Nature for me is spiritual that provides peace and love from the Earth that was created by God. It is the place I feel safe, grounded, gratitude, not judged and humbled. Nature makes me feel warm inside, and closer to God and my truest self. Descanso Gardens (a Botanical Garden) in La Canada Flintridge here in California, gave me the stability I needed to feel peace within.
What is even more special for me is that I learned that in African culture, they see spirituality and nature as interwoven and interrelated. It makes perfect sense. As I draw closer to spirituality, I notice that I have a need to connect with nature. I love surrounding myself and style with the energy of the earth. The earth is powerful in this way because it gives us everything we need.
Other than spending time in nature to find inner peace, you can listen to music that uplifts your spirit, mind what you are eating, exercise, meditate, read books that bring peace of mind and so much more that makes you feel joy and peace within.
