A powerful prayer to feel peace from A Course in Miracles & my year-long experiment
On my birthday earlier this year, my promise to myself was to read A Course in Miracles over the next year since there are 365 lessons.
If you're not familiar with A Course in Miracles (ACIM), it's a channeled book of a self-study spiritual system that is based on the premise of learning how to view the world through the lens of love.
It's been 4 months since my birthday and I'm still going strong. I'm beginning to see the changes in my life, my environment and still deeply inspired by the lessons.
Today, I want to expand on a recent lesson that encompasses a few different key points that I believe as a coach and spiritual teacher very valuable to implement in our daily lives for increased happiness.
✨" I COULD PEACE INSTEAD OF THIS✨
This lesson talks about how inside of us exists a place of peace that cannot be disturbed. No matter how unhappy, stressed, anxious or in a bad mood we may be, there's always a place within us that is deeply at peace, no matter the circumstance.
So the lesson reminds us of this:
When we're off centered, out of alignment, disturbed, tired, annoyed or whatever emotion we may be feeling, reminding ourselves by saying “I could see peace instead of this” – allows us to remember and most importantly to choose that peace exists and is available to us all the time.
As we begin to choose peace and love as a lens to view the world, the pain inside of us, begins to dissipate. The trauma and rage begin to soften, and love becomes a solid pillar that guides us through the ups and downs of life.
Does this resonate with you? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
And remember, may you follow your joy, always & in all ways!
