Finding Inner Peace

The Gratitude Hack

The Gratitude Hack

Feeling gratitude or appreciation can feel hard if you are focused on something you don't want. Hopefully this video can help to show that gratitude can be easier to experience when we no longer demand an object for it at first...

The gratitude hack is to not demand a reason to feel grateful, and instead focus on the unconditional feeling…

Am I Making Spiritual Progress?

Am I Making Spiritual Progress?

“My question is, I have overcome a lot from addiction, anxiety, self esteem and I owe it all to Buddhism and my practice of almost three years. As I approach my 3rd soberthday. I kind of feel like I read too many Buddhist books and that though I have come so far, I really haven't gotten anywhere, is that weird? In the midst of feeling so much better and waking up a little. I wonder if I've gotten anywhere at all. Your thoughts, please and thank you.”

Calming Mind Storms

Calming Mind Storms

My books and blogs speak enough about what to do (or not do) when you are experiencing “mind storms” of anxiety, anger, frustration, or an oncoming depression. “Pain body” or “Painmaker” attacks can create a whirlwind of uncontrollable suffering that leaves someone feeling as if they are a victim of their own mind and emotions.

For this week, rather than focussing on what to do or not do when these mind storms come, instead focus on the clarity or peace that is present when these mind storms are NOT there.

Have you ever just looked at your hands, your arms and legs, noticing that they are far different to how they looked when you were a child? Have you ever noticed how your personality has changed over the years. Have you ever really wondered – “Who am I?”

I thought I would use this opportunity to answer a few questions about the inner peace coaching service that I provide for those who want to go further into inner peace...

The Mind Tries To Keep You Safe

The Mind Tries To Keep You Safe

It seems that every troublesome thought we have, every unpleasant emotion, dread, worry, depression, anxiety - are all on some level, trying to keep us safe.

If you are worried, it is the mind’s attempt to stop something bad happening through focusing on it. If you are anxious, the anxiety is a fear response to try to take you away from a perceived danger. If you are angry, the anger is an attempt to fix reality into a certain form - and this form often involves you or a loved one being safer and further away from pain...
