“If I could have just one minute of peace!” These are words often uttered in total exasperation when deadlines, career and relationship challenges threaten to overwhelm us. Usually this exasperation is rooted in fear as we anxiously wonder what is going to go wrong next. And when we focus on what will go wrong, no doubt something does go wrong. It is fear that takes our peace away, not the circumstances.

Author Marianne Williamson teaches that we were created to create the good, the beautiful and the holy. Anything less than that, is not a representation of who we are; it is simply illusion. In his book The Seat Of The Soul, Gary Zhukov says that it is this illusion which makes us make life very difficult for ourselves and everyone else.  “The illusion holds power over you when you are not able to remember that you are a powerful spirit that has taken on the physical experience for the purpose of learning. It has power over you when you are compelled by the wants and impulses and values of your own personality. It has power over you when you fear and hate and sorrow and fester in anger or strike out in rage.”

According to the law of attraction, like attracts like. Therefore the frequency and intensity of anger will attract more of that. The frequency and level of greed will attract more of that as will anger and fear. These are the things that take our peace away.

The good news is, every individual has the power to stop things from snowballing to uncontrollable proportions.

When it feels like you are in free-fall, take a moment, close your eyes and reach for the truth within you; and there you will find your peace.  Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Whatever energy you create and release into the world will be reciprocated on all levels.

Take care to create the most positive, beautiful and peaceful energy you can and see the change around you.
