My view is that, truly, we are here to love and be loved — as a child, as a friend, as a spouse, as a co- worker. So much has disturbed those natural relationships. Our first question is often from the universal desire: Why can’t we have Peace on Earth?
My answer today: Our children aren’t loved. Not only that, they aren’t even safe. And we weren’t either. So, I say, let’s begin with safe.
We can be safe in ourselves, even if we have been traumatized. The most direct route is to know how to be calm inside our own bodies. Here is one of the very best tools. My husband, composer, Jack Waldenmaier, used his talent with music and with his recording studio to help me create this tool to help anyone find inner peace. Long ago, Jack learned self hypnosis to calm himself when he was traumatized by companioning his father when he passed away. Jack and I collaborated to create an elegant little tool — it’s only 16 min. long. Listen to it when you can chill or need to chill.
Relief from hurt, anxiety and stress can happen in short downshifts such as listening to our Safe Place guided imagery. Stopping to be with yourself for a few minutes is a quick state-changer. This personal journey includes our heartfelt invitation to find and design your own place of inner peace.
You can create your own Peace on Earth. And…we think that’s the way we start it. Keep Safe & Keep Smiling!
