Great Release Challenge – Day Eighteen! by Silver RavenWolf copyright 2012
What does it mean to you in association with your environment and your personal behavior? If I say to you, what activity would you do to create inner and outer peace, what would your answer be? If I ask you what activity do you like to do in your home or office environment that creates peace, what would you say?
Is where it begins – the healing, the happiness, the joy all stem from the peace within, and the peace you create around you.
Today, we’re going to walk through home or office, or even if you are relegated to just one room, and think about how you can make that environment a more peaceful and tranquil environment. What small changes can you make that can heighten the feeling of a calm and loving environment and in your daily activities? Today, I will vacuum and dust to remove any negativity attached to dirt, open a window for half an hour to allow the negativity to escape, then I will light scented candles or incense, and finish clearing the home with a singing bowl, concentrating on peace and tranquility.
Perhaps you feel constantly unsettled. Then it is from within that you must begin. Take a bubble bath, meditate, pray, do deep breathing exercise – choose the activity that creates the most inner peace for you.
In the northern hemisphere, the winter holiday activities are in full swing. Parties, dinners, get-togethers for fun, concerts, activities associated with school and children, and of course, the shopping, wrapping, and whatever else you like to do to keep the season bright and cheery. Which also, of course, brings its own level of stress. Then, of course, are the things you didn’t expect – like that girl on the cell phone that you didn’t expect to hit your car in the mall parking lot, or your hard drive in your computer saying, “You’ve pushed me too far, today I’m going to fart, and then I’m going to lay down and die.” Problems at this time of the year can take on a new level of hysteria because you’re busy playing the holiday game with a glittering eye on making a grand touch down every time.
Today, you also might like to check your schedule for the coming weeks and make any changes to prevent that edge of insanity where you may just want to have a melt down and be done with it.
Today, do all activities with your mind and your heart focused on creating and living Peace.
