5 Ways To Cultivate Inner Peace

5 Ways To Cultivate Inner Peace

Over the past week, I’ve been fortunate enough to experience frequent moments of deep peace while walking my dog, running errands, and in particular, talking to strangers. One thing I’ve come to learn is that peace comes from within. This means you have total control over how much peace you experience and attract into your life.

Peace is a feeling, experience, and way of being. It can’t be bought or sold. It can’t be forced on you or taken away from you. Peace is yours to be experienced no matter what is going on around you, no matter where you are, and no matter what you own. Peace lives in our hearts and is our natural state of being. Sometimes we just need to go back inside to find it again.

The key to experiencing more peace in your life is to create a mindset and lifestyle that eliminates fear and allows peace to easily enter anytime. Here are five mindsets and tools you can use to bring about more inner peace to your life.

1. Peace is the knowing you are always loved and supported

Peace comes from the inner knowing you are never alone and are always loved and supported. Whether this is felt through your family, friends or your perception of god, knowing you will always be looked after removes fear of security and excess worry.

A good way to reinforce this mindset is to take note of three to four challenging events you experienced, while having no idea at the time how to overcome them. Then list what support and miracles arrived that allowed you to move forward and arrive at where you are today.

2. Peace is believing the world is for you and not against you

You either choose to believe that the world is for you and supports you or you believe the world is against you and live your life in resistance. You either trust the flow of life or fight against it through control and fear. By believing the world is for you, you not only attract more positive situations into your life, you also know during every challenge there is a big light at the end of the tunnel.

Being grateful for what you ‘do have’ on a daily basis, rather than being consumed with what you ‘don’t have’ shifts your reality into a more positive experience. Taking back your power in this way brings a a greater sense of peace and trust into your life.

3. Peace comes from the realization you are more than your mind

Studies reveal the human mind has up to 70,000 thoughts per day, with 70% of them being negative. Basing our reality, happiness, and sense of peace purely on our thoughts sets us up for stress, worry, and feeling unfulfilled. Connecting to deeper parts of yourself such as your heart and intuition can provide a more peaceful sense of reality. It also allows you to stand back from your thoughts and take action to cultivate more positive and useful ones.

As your breath is directly linked to your mind, the fastest way to tame fear-based thoughts is by slowing down your breath.

4. Peace comes from connecting to the deepest part of yourself

As peace comes from within, it can be felt more strongly when you connect to your true self through your inner guidance system. Your inner guidance system is forever trusting and ever knowing everything is exactly as it should be. It understands you are on a journey collecting experiences of both challenges and joy along the way. It doesn’t show fear or have worry without faith. It holds trust and surrenders to the flow of life.

Aligning to this part of you not only brings about increased states of peace in daily life, it can also draw you to more peaceful situations and people.

5. Peace comes when you stand still

Peace is your true nature, your prayer, the language of your heart, your purpose, and your destiny. Clearing away whatever is in the way of you connecting to this part of you, will be bring a deep sense of peace to the surface and become your focus. Meditating, taking silent walks in nature, and being totally present during an awe inspiring sunset are all ways to engage with peace.

Stand still, so the peace can find you.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
