Foundational Steps To A Peaceful Mind

#1

We notice what we do that is great, point it out to each other and celebrate.

Everyday we can find things we have done well and things we have done not so well. We are so conditioned to notice our weaknesses and it is now time to change that. What you focus your attention on grows so as part of this movement we choose to start noticing the little things we do well that would normally go unsaid. Let's help each other out by noticing what others are doing well (the small things) and pointing it out to them too. Once you point it out to yourself and others, take it up a notice by celebrating it with a nice thought, feeling or high five.

#2

We share stories with each other about our successes and challenges.

When we commit to sharing out stories of success it puts us on the lookout for where success is happening. This means we are more likely to notice success in our lives. What we notice grows, meaning even more successes will be on our way. When we read other's successes it helps us also notice where we are having it in our life - WIN! WIN! The process of writing down challenges is often half the problem solved. When we write it down for likeminded caring people to read we open up to a variety of solutions and support. Sometimes 1 + 1 = 3

#3

We help and support each other to present the best version of ourselves to the world.

We look out for each other and encourage growth and expansion as well as being open to expanding and growing ourselves. Each time one of us expands in our thinking it benefits the group, community and the world.

#4

When I am at work my mind is at work, when I am at home my mind is at home. This is how I have balance.

Feeling like we have the right balance in life is of the upmost importance and sometimes it comes from what we are focussing on rather than what we are doing.  If we focus on where we are when we are there it is amazing how much more balance we feel.

🙂

 

#5

We know what our strengths are and play with them everyday in all areas of our life.

Look for and notice the things you do easily and enjoy, these are where your strengths lie.  Remember what comes easily to you is difficult for someone else so recognise what comes easily as your strength and build on it.  When you are doing what comes easily and you enjoy, your mind is more peaceful.  Help your children notice what comes easy to them and let them know this is a strength.

 🙂

 

#6

We seek clarity about what we do want rather than what we don’t want.

When we have our unconscious mind on board, the changes we need to make are easy, long lasting and sustainable. When we are clear about what we want we send the right information to the unconscious to make it happen. If we are only clear about what we don't want then our unconscious helps us have more of that.  We spend time each day thinking about what it would look like and feel like if we had a more peaceful mind, knowing this is a big step in making it so.

🙂

 

#7

Recognise the value and importance of silence and calm. This is where we hear our deepest thoughts and our truth.

We spend time each day in silence and calm. Internal silence can be achieved at the same time as being active on the outside. Have the intention to experience silence and calm for the next 5mins while you……(cook dinner, have a shower etc), this is enough to make it happen on some level.  When we increase the amount of calm we have in our day, there is space to notice the successes and solve the challenges.

🙂

 

#8

Recognise a connection with something bigger and you will experience the best version of you to share with the world.

Experiencing silence and calm enables us to feel and hear the bigger knowing inside us all.  Each day we take a moment to stop and put our hand on our heart with the intention of feeling the bigger self in there. We use the silence within to listen to what it says and feel the love and acceptance that is always there.  Doing this each day can create subtle changes in everything we do. It is the subtle changes that often have a big impact.

 🙂

 

#9

We know our value and do not play small, we listen to our inner knowing and act on it.

Be outrageously who you want to be. You know who it is when you listen deep inside and you know who you want to be, even if it is who you want to be in this moment, so BE IT!  Externalise what you know is inside you and watch magic happen around you as others interact with the real you. The Peaceful Mind Project offers you a great platform to being the real you and will bring peace to your mind as well as those you interact with.

🙂

 

#10

We share our love with the world by filling ourselves up first and allowing it to overflow to others in a never ending supply.

We recognise what fills us up and we do it regularly knowing that we can then truly give to the world around us without being depleted.  We monitor how full we are and when our tank gets low we fill it up. It may be with kind thoughts, feelings or visualising the love spreading through every cell. We know when we are overflowing with love because it feels GREAT!

🙂

 

#11

We notice where we DO contribute to good in the world in the little things we do  everyday and we celebrate this.

We notice where we already contribute in life everyday  helping lay a foundation for doing more without even trying. Sharing the details of the small contributions we make everyday helps us recognise it and watch it magically grow.  This gives others awareness about where they may be contributing too. The more we all become aware of where we already contribute they more contribution there will be.

 🙂

 

#12

Being full who we are and expressing the best version of ourselves is the best contribution we can give.

We all want to contribute to the world and when we are not accessing the best versions of ourselves it is near impossible to contribute what you want. To be a better contributor all we need to do is be fully who we are in our thoughts, our words to others and our actions.  All else will follow.

🙂

 

#13

We feed our mind and body the best ingredients and thrive, teaching out children to do the same.

We are avid yearners for information to better ourselves and the lives of our children.  We are expanding everyday as we learn from our experiences as well as the experiences of others.  We seek information that makes us feel good and share this information with others, including our children.

🙂

 

#14

We know what feeling we want each day and we create this feeling within us even if the circumstances are not perfect.

We don’t wait for a compliment to feel good about ourselves, we don’t wait for recognition to feel validated and we don’t wait for encouragement to feel confident. We feel these feelings and any others we want without waiting for anything outside of ourselves. It is still great to receive a compliment, recognition and encouragement but we are not reliant on them to feel the way we want..

 🙂

 

#15

We are aware of our thoughts and speak to ourselves like a friend, both in words and tone. We remind others to do the same.

Creating new habits of friendship with ourselves and listening out for others who may be falling into old habits will lead to creating more Peaceful Minds and less heartache.

🙂

  1. I’m an! Can we get this in a printed form ? I’d love to frame it and put it up in my house as a Manifesto for our family interaction. Maybe you’ve covered this in a Blog entry or somewhere and I just need a link.

    • This is a great idea Susan and I am looking into creating a printed version that looks nice. You are of course welcome to print it out in the meantime. I am also creating a print out of my manifesto, have you seen it?
