What is Inner Peace?

So just what is inner peace? One thing's for sure, peace is something we all long for. Let me explain what inner peace means to me.

Inner peace is a state of being. It is not a place that we go to or a thing that we do. Inner peace is deep within us all. After all, it is our natural state of being.  We just have to learn how to let it through to the surface.

We don't need to go searching for inner peace, it is always there. Finding inner peace is about learning to heal those things that prevent us from experiencing our natural peaceful state.

Because inner peace is a state of being, not doing, it can be a little hard to put into words. Living in a peaceful state could mean that we experience more of the following on a regular basis:

what is inner peace
  • we find ourselves worrying less and smiling more
  • there is less tendency to be judgemental and critical of ourselves and others
  • we feel more content and appreciative of all the good things in our lives
  • there are less fearful and negative thoughts racing through our heads
  • we let go of the need for drama and conflict in our lives
  • we develop trust and faith in the Universe and know that all will be well
  • there is a greater connection to and appreciation of nature
  • we let go of the need to dwell on the past
  • we understand that there is no need to fear the future
  • there is less need to point the blame at others
  • there is more kindness shown to ourselves and others
  • we enjoy more quiet time without needless distractions
  • we are able to sit and be still, and just be in the moment

How Do We Achieve Inner Peace?

Because inner peace is a state of being, you can choose to be peaceful in this moment, right here and now - but unfortunately things aren't always that easy.

The experience of life means that we accumulate "stuff" as we go - beliefs, fears, regrets, doubts, anxieties, judgements, anger and resentment, just to name a few. Our inner peace becomes clouded by all of these things, until we get to the point where we forget it even existed.

So rediscovering what is inner peace and being able to live in that state more often involves learning to heal and let go of all of those things that I mentioned above. It is very much a personal healing journey.

On this website, my aim is to share with you many of the methods I used to heal those things in my life that were smothering my own inner peace. These include:

Nobody feels totally peaceful all of the time, but the more we can be aware of what is disrupting our inner peace, let go, and learn to change our behaviour, the more we can allow those moments of inner peace to come though.

Over time, inner peace comes more easily and frequently. But the journey begins now, with you, and that very first step.
