Meditation achieving inner peace and tranquility in your life

11 Ways to Find Your Inner Peace and Happiness Now

Inner peace is possible, and you don’t need to meditate on a mountaintop or break the bank for a wellness retreat in order to find it. Carving out time to relax is wonderful, but it’s amid the frantic pace of everyday life when we need serenity the most: That moment when you’re stuck in the pharmacy line and the contents of your bag spill on the floor just as your phone starts ringing? Thats when you need to find inner peace within yourself, right as you’re suppressing the urge to unleash a stream of four-letter words.

“I think often people look for circumstances to help achieve a sense of inner peace,” says Ashley Davis Bush, psychotherapist and author of The Little Book of Inner Peace: Simple Practices for Less Angst, More Calm. “In fact, this calm, compassionate, deep awareness is actually within each person. It’s as if we have a deep reservoir of peacefulness and serenity inside us. What we have to learn to do is tap into it.”

With the help of what Bush calls “micro-practices,” you can get better at accessing your inner calm—even if it's been in hiding for awhile.

Peace of mind doesn’t require peace and quiet.

Have you ever been scuba diving, or even just watched a good deep-sea documentary? The ocean’s tide brings the drama when it crashes against the shore, but venture a few meters down and you’ll find a tranquil world of creatures moving at their own pace, wholly unfazed by the action up above.

“The problem is most of us live sort of on the surface of the waves, where there's a lot of turbulence and wildness,” says Davis. “But again, this deep, calm, awareness is actually within each person.”

Davis maintains that you don't need to shut out all the noise to find inner peace. “There's this assumption that if you're in a quiet place, it will be more conducive to accessing this spot within. But, in fact, there are people who have panic attacks while they’re on a massage table. You could be on a New York city subway, surrounded by people and noise, and close your eyes to go into this space where your calmness resides.”

Breathe in, breathe out.

Your breath is always with you, and both yoga and meditation practices harness the power of breath control to help shift your state of mind. Davis likes to recommend practicing the 4-7-8 breath, which is based on a time-tested yoga technique, because you can do it anywhere at any time.

Close your mouth and inhale through your nose as you count to four. Hold onto that breath as you count to seven, and then exhale through your mouth for the count of eight.

“The long exhale helps stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is basically initiating a relaxation response in your body,” Davis says. “Make sure to breathe really low, to fill your belly with air.

Feel the truth that you’re safe and loved.

“Remind yourself that you’re breathing. And hopefully, you’re physically protected,” says Julie Potiker, mindful self-compassion teacher and author of Life Falls Apart, But You Don't Have To: Mindful Methods for Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos.

“Think about the people you care about, and the people who care about you,” Potiker suggests, saying that focusing on that can lower your panic response. “Let the truth of that warm your heart.”

Visualize your happy place.

This is another micro-practice that becomes easier the more you do it, and the stronger your visualization, the more effective it is. It's okay if it takes you a while to conjure up what that go-to happy place is.

“You might want to picture the ocean, or your bedroom under your covers, a lake view, playing with your pet, being with someone you love, or maybe a favorite vacation,” Davis suggests. “Then, try to really get all the details in your mind’s eye—the smells, the sounds, the textures, the touch.” Accessing these vivid memories will cue your body to start feeling like you’re actually there, which will relax you, she says.

Read the story you’re telling yourself.

If you find yourself spiraling over a perceived disappointment, frustration, or panic-inducing thought, try stepping back to assess whether what your brain is telling you is true. Examining the source of your turmoil can make it feel smaller in size.

“I tell my students that what you resist persists and they need to feel it to heal it,” Potiker says. She often recommends the RAIN technique, an acronym first coined by meditation teacher Michele McDonald.

Recognize what’s happening. “Label the emotion, because simply naming it calms down your over-arousal,” says Potiker.

Allow your situation to be there. “You’re not resisting it, or trying to numb it and run away from it,” she says. “You're allowing it to be there long enough to work with it.”

Investigate. Potiker says to ask yourself, What most wants my attention? What am I believing? Where am I experiencing these feelings in my body—can I put my hands on where I’m feeling it, and soften the area? All of this inquiry is done with love, not judgment.

Nourish. This is alternately defined as natural loving awareness. You’ve observed yourself, and it’s time to treat yourself with loving kindness. “Ask yourself, What do I need to hear right now?” Potiker says. “Just talking to yourself like you would a dear friend is extremely helpful and healing. It staves off the feeling of isolation.”

Or ACT your way to deeper self-compassion.

There’s no one road to self-compassion, so here’s another way to think of it. Davis suggests trying a three-step method she calls ACT, based on the work of Kristen Neff, a prominent researcher in the field of self-compassion.

“'A' is for acknowledge, as in you acknowledge your suffering or your struggle: This really sucks,” Davis says. “'C' is for connect, connecting to all common humanity to remember that you're not alone in this. Other people get frustrated, feel angry or impatient. The 'T' is to talk kindly to yourself.”

When it comes to positive self-talk, Davis echoes Potiker’s recommendation to address yourself as you would a friend, because using “I” sentences may make you feel more isolated. “Research shows that when you talk to yourself in the third person, you actually activate the care circuit in your brain so that you feel more cared for,” she continues. “You’re accessing your higher self so that you can talk yourself off the ledge, and you feel more supported. So I would say, Ashley, you're going to be okay. This is a really hard moment, but don’t forget, Ashley, you’re not alone in this.

Make a “joy list” for when you need it later.

While a compassionate inventory of how you’re feeling is a powerful mindfulness exercise, Potiker says asking yourself, What do I need to do right now? can remind you to lean on actions that tend to give you peace. Since many people find it challenging to remember which activities bring them joy when they’re feeling mired in chaos, Potiker recommends looking to a “joy list” that you’ve compiled ahead of time.

“Free associate what brings you joy, and then pick something on the list to do when you’re feeling lousy,” she says. While you’re doing that thing, such as flower arranging or baking, savor it. “Take it in for a few moments, because taking in the good rewires your brain for happiness and resilience,” Potiker says, citing the work of psychologist Rick Hanson, PhD.

If you look at a beautiful sunset and say, “That’s a beautiful sunset—what’s for dinner?,” Potiker says you haven’t given your brain a chance to truly form a positive connection. Instead, try to fully give yourself over to the moment, noticing the rich colors of the sky, because that's productive work in its own way.

“Just letting you fill you up for that moment of awe is enough to rewire your brain for happiness and resilience,” she says. You can do this multiple times a day, Potiker adds, building up a joy reserve by just savoring those first sips of morning coffee, or the sound of a child giggling.

Cultivate gratitude for what’s happening (and

not happening).

The psychological benefits of gratitude have been championed repeatedly in the field of happiness research, and according to Davis, practicing gratitude is another way to quickly access that state of inner peace. She suggests two simple ways to get into the habit: keeping a gratitude journal, and smiling as soon as you sit up in bed in the morning. “When you smile, it signals to your brain that things are good and that you’re happy.”

If you find yourself struggling to think of what you're grateful for in the heat of a chaotic or frustrating moment, Davis suggests you start by naming what you're glad isn't happening—and boom, now you've got something to be thankful for. To go back to her earlier subway example, in a crowded commute you might think, I’m glad I’m not being mugged right now, or I’m glad it’s actually moving and we’re not stuck in the dark; I'm glad it's air-conditioned; I'm glad I have a seat; I'm glad I have a physically healthy body. One small positive thought often sparks another.

Ask yourself two questions daily.

Your gratitude journal entries don’t need to be lengthy reflections, like some burdensome daily homework assignment. Instead, Potiker says use these two simple prompts to list an item or two for each: “What did enjoy today?” and “What am I grateful for today?” Maybe you did something that's on your joy list, for example.

Serve others to help yourself, too.

“Everybody knows that when you help other people, you feel better,” Potiker says. Those in the field of positive psychology believe that the good feelings that come from truly meaningful acts cultivate something they've deemed eudemonic well-being.

Over decades, research has suggested that in the long term, the eudemonic happiness that people feel from doing something like volunteering or making someone else feel good is more rewarding, and longer-lasting, than the more commonly pursued hedonic well-being, which prioritizes seeking pleasure and minimizing pain. Thus, building up a reserve of eudemonic happiness through acts of service could potentially up your general inner-peace baseline.

Maintain good self-care hygiene.

Eating right, getting plenty of sleep, exercising, meditating, and practicing what Potiker calls “mindfulness daily life activities” can all shore up your mental-peace defenses for when all hell breaks loose (in your world, or in your head). “Even while you’re just brushing your teeth, you can focus on feeling the toothbrush, tasting the toothpaste, and hearing the sounds, so you’re not worrying about your to-do list or what just happened in the news,” she says. “That’s a mindfulness in daily life activity.”

It’s all about developing “the pause,” so that when you feel yourself reacting to a situation, you’re better prepared to respond in a calmer way.

Practice acceptance.

In the larger pursuit of learning to access your inner peace, Davis says that accepting the existence of things that are out of your control is the long-term goal, difficult as it may be. “Acceptance is an overall way of engaging with life,” she explains. “So it’s less about a quick practice, and more about a life orientation.

“When we resist our circumstances, we create a lot of suffering, which of course is the opposite of inner peace,” she continues. “And the second you start going with the flow and putting yourself in alignment with what is, you immediately start to have a sense of flowing with rather than flowing against.”

It’s a challenging process, and one your brain may resist on impulse at first. That’s why it’s called “practice”—you may not nail it the first, 15th, or 50th time, and that’s normal.

“In terms of a practice, I might say to someone, ‘Right when you're in a situation like you're in a long grocery line, you can't believe it, you're late for something, you're feeling really stressed? Just stop, drop into your heart space, and say, This is what I've got. This is where I am. I'm just going to flow with this. And I'm going to look for an opportunity now to just practice patience, and practice self-compassion. This is really hard. I wish I could be faster. I wish I wasn't in this line, but I am. It's okay, and I'm okay.’”

Achieving Inner Peace and Tranquility In Your Life (Little – Best Of Used Books

Skip to content

Meditation is a technique that can be used to experience peace, tranquility, and an inner beauty, leading us to rethink everything around us, even ourselves. It prompts us to trust in the ability we have to use and direct our energies to purify our bodies and minds . . . so that we can discover and develop our spirituality.

Brian Weiss, M.D., has written a very special book to help with the practice of meditation (an audio download is also included to guide you through the process). Meditation: Achieving Inner Peace and Tranquility in Your Life includes the techniques Dr. Weiss uses on his patients, many of whom have conquered insomnia, anxiety, phobias, weight issues, and disease. Meditation can also lower blood pressure, strengthen the immunological system, and reduce stress.

As Dr. Weiss says, “It all starts by closing our eyes, relaxing our muscles, and slowing down our breathing. Little by little, we ask our minds to block out the clamoring voices that usually bombard it. . . . This means living this moment intensely, letting go, and surrendering.” This book is the first step on a more peaceful, relaxing journey through life.

Meditation is a technique for achieving inner peace and tranquility, relaxing the body and getting rid of thoughts. Meditation is also used to find the true "I", and even to achieve the state of nirvana at the highest levels of meditation, which, in fact, is available to very few people and requires serious and lengthy internal and external work. Many people do not understand what meditation is and why it is needed, but many consider meditation to be something like an esoteric practice based on the belief in higher powers, that in order to practice meditation it is necessary to renounce earthly goods and move further away from people. Often a meditating person is presented as a Hindu sitting in a lotus position, as if falling into a dream, but continuing to be awake. In reality, there is nothing mystical about meditation, although it is not without a halo of mystery, since in some cases it is used by people for purposes that are not understood by most people. nine0003

You don't have to be far away from people to practice meditation, although being in a quiet place is preferable, although you can meditate on the subway or at a concert, wherever you like. You do not need to take the lotus position and make some gestures with your fingers, it is enough for you to take a comfortable position - sitting or lying down, and relax. And you do not have to strive for a state of nirvana in your meditation practice, you can derive from your meditation practice many real and achievable benefits for ordinary people, such as: the ability to keep attention on certain aspects for a long time, achieving inner peace and harmony, improving memory, and getting rid of stress. In this section, you will find many articles about meditation, such as the benefits of meditation, performance techniques, and much more that you may find interesting and useful.

In all cultures of the world, the state of harmony is not achievable without contemplative techniques? work with consciousness, that is, meditation. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, Christian, Hindu or Muslim. There is only one way to comprehend God or open the veil over the mysterious essence of the world - by directing a continuous stream of attention to the object under study.

Meditation is the state in which the cosmic mind manifests. (Skt. "medha" - cosmic mind). nine0003

Humanity is now at a crossroads: to continue evolution in the way it happened before, in the direction of physical and mental development, or to move towards the realization of our inner potential. The first path leads to internal disorder and dissatisfaction that prevail in the modern world, the second to knowledge, happiness and harmony both within oneself and outside. In addition, the first path has its limitations, while the alternative path of development leads to unlimited possibilities, to higher levels of existence, new levels of consciousness and indescribable states of bliss. This path does not require renunciation of the external world, on the contrary, it leads to development, satisfaction and success in daily activities. nine0003

Let's look at some statements.

Jesus Christ said "The kingdom of God is within you." The Buddha proclaimed: "Look inside yourself, you are the Buddha (awakened)". The Greeks wrote above the door of their temple: "Man, know yourself and you will know the universe." In the Bhagavad-gita, Krishna says, "Meditation is far superior to (intellectual) knowledge."

They were talking about the basic truth of existence. Infinite possibilities lie dormant in each of us. Meditation does not require giving up on the outside world, just taking some time for the inner journey. Saint Augustine said: "People go on journeys to look at the mountain peaks and the waves of the sea, at the wide rivers and at the expanses of the ocean, but they do not notice themselves - the highest miracle." Even modern scientists admit that there is much more hidden in you than is commonly believed. nine0003

Our mind is like an iceberg, of which we see only a tenth of it above the water, and the rest is hidden below the surface. Under water, the subconscious and unconscious realms of the mind that contain our basic instincts and needs, the intellectual and national aspects of our being, memories with which we have lost contact, visions, dreams.


Meditation is a contemplative technique of working with consciousness to comprehend God, opening the veil over the mysterious essence of the world. Many people have heard about meditation, but few people know it from their own experience. It occurs only against the background of complete relaxation while maintaining complete self-awareness. The goal of yoga and meditation is to become aware of these layers of the mind. nine0003

Meditation is a spiritual discipline that allows you to gain some control over your thoughts and feelings. Dalai Lama 14

Meditation - finding the inner space. Yogananda

Meditation - Knowledge of your own body, breath, mind, emotions and the source of your life. Awareness of the life force. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

By concentrating the mind one acquires knowledge. Swami Vivekananda

Truth is within ourselves; it does not come from external phenomena, no matter what we believe. In each of us there is such a center where the truth is in its fullness ... And knowledge lies more in finding a way by which the splendor contained in us can break out, rather than in finding access to the light that we believe is outside. . Robert Browning Dramatic Poem Paracelsus

"Without the help of meditation you will not be able to gain the knowledge of the Higher Self. Without its help you will not be able to reach the state of Divinity. Without it you will not be able to free yourself from the networks of the mind and gain immortality. Swami Sivananda "Divine Blessing"

Meditation is the only royal way to achieve freedom, it is a wonderful ladder leading from earth to heaven, from error to truth, from darkness to light, from pain to good, from anxiety to permanent peace, from ignorance to knowledge, from death to immortality. nine0003

Meditation - is a meeting with your soul face to face.

Meditation is a real gift. It inspires, nourishes creativity and helps to feel the joy of life, which does not come from anywhere, does not go anywhere, it lives in the soul forever. Ideas arise during meditation. They can be compared with fish: small ones are found in shallow water, and large ones in depth. The task of the meditator is to catch a large deep-sea fish. Everything in this world arises from the depth of perception, the wider your ability to be aware, the larger the fish caught will be. nine0003

Meditation is a process of immersion and contact with a deep level. The stream of creativity is getting wider. This inner ocean, however strange it may sound, is an ocean of complete knowledge. When you open it for yourself, the ability to intuitive perception appears, knowledge comes: You begin to see what is done wrong, and you know how to fix it. Intuition awakens (the unity of emotions and intellect, their combination brings both to a new level). Intuition is a tool for creativity for any person, no matter what he does. If you want to change your life, to direct the vector "up", you need to start from the deepest level. Enlightenment exists and can be achieved, and an ocean of boundless peace is within us. Having achieved it, we bring integrity to where there was disunity. With the help of meditation, we expand our consciousness and reveal our potential, knowing our own integrity, which contains limitless possibilities. Inspiration is a blank slate. Remember that this sheet remains as such until you have new ideas. We wish you to catch big fish! Directed by David Lynch. nine0003

THE SUPERIOR QUALITIES OF HUMANS compared to animals are given to him so that he can understand his destiny and gain the freedom of the soul. The correct method of meditation is the way to be one with God when you achieve the ability to calm the mind. If you are able to control your feelings and sensations, you will be able to connect your mind with God. You will feel reborn in his being. His spirit is able to correct the evil in every person, but a person must make efforts to realize the Divine Consciousness and manifest the infinite perfection of the Lord in himself. The habit of Divine meditation produces self-realization. nine0003

Without a doubt, each of us has had spontaneous meditative experiences, even those who have not deliberately practiced meditation. This state could arise when, for example, you admired the views of nature, looked into the eyes of a child ..., in a word, in those moments when all your anxieties receded, your thoughts calmed down, and you could afford to just be. In general, the state of "doing nothing and enjoying a deep sense of presence." For a lucky few, this state is easily achievable, and regular practice is necessary for this experience to be manageable. Meditation is doing nothing and enjoying a deep sense of presence. This is the state when we allow ourselves only to be. nine0003

WHEN YOU LEARN TO MEDITATE, your mind needs love, patience, care, diligence on your part. The first attempts to stop him and force him to concentrate on something are more likely to cause resistance. He will be constantly distracted. Calmly return him to the task at hand. A BEGINNER is often subject to many unrealistic thoughts about getting quick results.

Kinesthetics feel the movement of energy very well and prefer to concentrate on their sensations.

The inner world of audials opens under the influence of sound.

Visuals easily concentrate on the image.

The great Patanjali explains to us what meditation is. Meditation is a uniform and uninterrupted flow of attention directed to the same point or area (DHYANA). This stage is preceded by concentration, concentration (Dharana). Dharana - "observation of the inner space of consciousness." nine0003

“You need to choose an object that instantly attracts your consciousness and makes it distract from everything else. When the consciousness focuses on one form, the light contained in us is revealed. Concentration is the key that unlocks the gates of this great power. By successfully concentrating on one idea or form, you achieve dhyana. Whether you are a believer or an atheist, through meditation you can realize unearthly bliss. The believer can meditate on any chosen form of God through which he will attain self-realization. An atheist can choose a flower, a star, the tip of the nose, a point between the eyebrows, a heart." Swami Satyananda "Steps to Yoga"

One of the effective ways of meditation is CHIDAKASHA MEDITATION. MAHAKASA - the great space surrounding us, the material universe. Chidakash is the space of consciousness in which it is possible to see the endless psychic events taking place in a human being.

"When the mind is silent and still, it gains tremendous power and becomes a perfect instrument, a receiver of bliss and wisdom. Life becomes a spontaneous process and an expression of happiness. All this happens naturally when the consciousness is in a state of inner silence. But such silence never will come when there is a continuous flow of restless thoughts and emotions.It is necessary to eliminate all this inner noise before you feel the soundless sound of inner silence.The practice of ANTAR MAUNA is designed to eliminate the inner noise and achieve peace of mind.The word "ANTAR" means internal, and "MAUNA" "Silence. This practice is one of the most direct methods of working with psychological problems. In order to achieve happiness, real happiness, it is necessary to eradicate these mental impressions (samskaras), not suppress them. MAUNA directly serves to achieve this goal.

MAUNA is a very consistent method. First, it increases resistance to external disturbances, and then creates the possibility of a gradual rise to the surface of conscious perception of subconscious thoughts and repressed emotions. A person directly encounters the contents of the subconscious: long-forgotten memories, fears, hatred, anger . .. Thoughts and feelings that have remained hidden for many years come to the surface and are worked out. At a certain stage of thought, emotions from the subconscious become insignificant, do not cause much harm, and are perceived only as a slight inconvenience. At this stage, the thought process can be stopped in order to reach a state without thought. This eventually leads to meditation and understanding of one's true nature. nine0003

What happens to the body and mind in the process of concentrated but not exhausting work, that state of immersion that expands, opens our consciousness to observation and further experience, is MEDITATION. When we meditate, we are not just aware of our experience, we are experiencing it. This is a special state at the level of the soul, the level of God.

Hazrat Inayat Khan proclaims: "The best method adopted by the mystics for contemplation is the repetition of a word that inspires a certain thought, that word that evokes the image of a certain idea when it is repeated. Each repetition not only completes, but also deepens, makes the impression much clearer produced on the subconscious Wahlak Allah "Manners of God"

This method will teach you how to drive your mind machine professionally. Control your mind, think about what you want. As a result, it changes our lives.

As you become more proficient in meditation, the repetition of the mantra will help clear out mental patterns such as destructive self-talk and deeply rooted self-images. These patterns are often expressed as repetitive thoughts (eg, "I can't succeed at anything", "I'm alone in this world", "Life isn't fair"). Meditation can give you access to pure perception, the essence of which, Love and Faith, will lead to profound spontaneous changes in your way of thinking, relationships and even the direction of your DESTINY. nine0003

Alexander Usanin shares his experience of japa meditation: “During such meditation, the mind is completely and completely focused on the Divine - on the power free from false ego, fears, delusions. Coming into contact with this power through sacred sounds, the meditator is filled with humility before God, surrenders all of himself to the mercy of his will, imbued with goodness and goodness. In this state, the laws of the Universe are revealed to a person - a feeling of complete unity with every cell of his body, and with it, the natural connection of his being with the outside world and the entire universe. Since the cause of all our mistakes, bad qualities of character, sinful, wrong actions is a false ego - forgetfulness of our relationship with the Almighty as His small part and the Complete Whole. The most powerful upaya is the repetition of mantras and prayers, especially the repetition of the names of God. It is as if a blazing fire burns away all the consequences of offenses and dispels the darkness of ignorance in the heart, just as the rising Sun dispels the morning mist. The peculiarity of spiritual upai is that they quickly give a tangible effect, a visible result, while raising the level of consciousness of a person and strengthening his mind, which protects a person from making such mistakes in the future. The soul gets rid of samskaras (subconscious karmic negative programs). nine0003

WHY DO I NOT MEDITATE REGULARLY? Because the mind proves to us that there are more important things.

UNSTABLE SITUATION IN THE WORLD. This is a big psychological problem, a set of individual psychological problems of all mankind. The human world is unstable because most of its inhabitants are unstable. Therefore, by trying to solve your own psychological problems, you are taking a positive step towards achieving happiness.
