You Really Can Attain Inner Peace in 5 Minutes and Here’s How…

Nothing was as frustrating to me as having to clean up my – financial, emotional, spiritual, and physical – house after my divorce. It sent me into a rage every time I thought about it. My resentment was at an all time high and I could only see red. One day, I reclaimed my peace of mind in 5 minutes.

My secret weapon…SURRENDER.

Now I know what you’re thinking. “Yeah right! You just gave up. You told yourself you surrendered, but you really just threw in the towel.”

Surrender isn’t giving up

When you give up, you feel exasperated, exhausted. When you surrender, it feels like a deep, cleansing breath.

It’s ease.

It feels like a sigh of relief.

It doesn’t feel exhausting. It doesn’t feel like you’re out of breath from running.

It feels like something good is going to come out of it. It feels like you are ready for the next thing.

It feels like your inner peace is restored.

Surrender can be scary

Let’s be real. Surrender could feel like you’re jumping into an abyss when you don’t see the bottom.

It can be scary.

Letting go, when you don’t know what’s going to catch you, is fear-inducing. But at some point you have to trust that you will be caught.

“What’s catching me?”

Still with me? It’s about to get woo-woo.

Remember that scene in City of Angels when Nicholas Cage jumps off the building to literally fall in love? No, you’re not going to jump off a building. It’s not that dramatic!

You are going to release your iron grip on the thing that is holding you hostage.

Take a breath and gently release the tight reins on life. Let go of the nut in the jar. Go ahead, as you’re reading this, take a breath. Release and breathe in Well-Being.

Try again. Deep breath. Inhale Well-Being. Exhale your stress.

Again. Inhale peace. Exhale fear.

Inhale joy, exhale anger.

Do you feel your peace of mind being restored?

One breath at a time, in 5 minutes, you will feel your peace of mind. It’s not permanent, but it gives you the room to respond, not react. You can now act consciously, in alignment with your values and your desires.

  • I had a situation this week that seven years ago would have sent me into orbit. Squishy oily balloon-ish thing that no amount of holding would have helped. So I let go. My calm was contagious to the other party. We worked it out beautifully.

  • Nneka, so true and very challenging to get one’s mind around, but once done, you are right, it is a huge gorilla off your chest!

    • Welcome Alle:-) So good to see you here. I struggle with the balance between giving up and surrendering all the time. ALWAYS, when I surrender, I feel a load off my chest.

  • Excellent Mamie! Don’t you just love it when you could not only experience your own calm, but positively influence a situation by it? 🙂

  • I really like how you differentiate surrendering and giving up. You’re right, they’re NOT the same thing. I feel like I sometimes resist surrendering because I don’t want to “give up,” but I know I’ve made the right choice later when I feel relieved.

    Oh, and I love City of Angels! 🙂

    • It’s a fine line. We are taught to persevere, but we are not taught to let go. We create space and energy to persevere when we let go:-) Thanks for stopping by Sage:-)

    This reminds me of a quote I saw, “Let go…or be dragged.” Ever since seeing it I’ve let go of a lot of things I thought were essential to my life and well-being. Turns out they really weren’t. They were just chains holding me back.

    • Hi Janelle, so good to “see” you here:-)

      Holding onto to things that don’t serve you is like standing with a bag of stones wondering why you can’t take off in life. It’s just not worth it!
