6 thoughtful tips for manifesting peace of mind

What Does it Mean to Have Peace of Mind?

Understanding Inner Peace and It’s Importance

Inner peace is the state of being calm and stable. It feels like freedom from emotional turmoil.

Embracing inner peace gives you a different outlook on the world. It gives you the power to choose how you spend your energy.

Prioritizing peacefulness in my life has helped me:

  • Manage my stress – no more obsessing over things that don’t matter
  • Think clearer – less jumbled thoughts and more focus on solutions
  • Improve my overall wellbeing – I’m healthier mentally and physically

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Quick Lesson on Manifestation (and the Law of Attraction)

Manifestation means to take physical and mental action to bring your desires to reality.

It’s often mentioned alongside the Law of Attraction which suggests that we create our reality based on our thoughts.

Eh. I agree, but then I don’t. I’ll save that for another post.

For the purpose of this post, we will focus on taking actionable steps to manifest more peace into your life.

6 Actionable Steps to Manifest Peace of Mind

Here are 6 practical steps you can follow to start manifesting peace in your life.

1. Set Clear Intentions for Your Peace

Before getting started, you have to identify what peace means to you. What does it look like? What does it feel like to have peace within? 

How will you know you have achieved peace?

This requires a level of self-awareness. And once you have defined what it means to have inner peace of mind, write out your intention.

Exampled of intentions for peace:

  • I will take aligned action to live the peaceful life that I desire.
  • I am capable, worthy, and deserving of peacefulness.
  • I will live peacefully and authentically while protecting my energy.

2. Start an Aligned Spiritual Practice

My journey for peace of mind is what actually led to me starting my spiritual journey at the end of 2019. I had been researching tips on how to change my thought process and on how to basically become unbothered.

Somehow, I stumbled onto spirituality and regained my personal power. 

If you think you may be interested in this route, here are my tips for you:

  1. Your spiritual practice is unique and should resonate with your own beliefs and intentions.
  2. Remember that you make the rules. No one can tell you what you should or should not do on your path.
  3. Trust your power.

3. Identify Everything that Worries You

It’s hard to feel a sense of peace when you’re constantly worrying and stressing over things. 

What is it in your life that is causing you to feel overwhelmed? Is it work? A relationship? Your finances?

Make a list of these things.

If you’re having a tough time pinning down the source of your worries, here are some inner peace journal prompts for you to explore. They cover self-reflection, mindfulness, spirituality, gratitude/joy, and loving yourself.

4. Fix What You Can and Let the Rest Be

The biggest lesson I’ve learned on my peace journey is to focus on what I can control.

It’s a waste of your time and energy to worry about things you can’t control. Learn to identify what can be resolved then practice letting go of what you can’t change.

Using the list you made above, you are going to assign each item to a category:

  • Can Control
  • Can’t Control

For every item you can control, create an action plan to resolve the issue. When I do this, it helps reduce stress. 

Can ControlCannot Control
your attitude and actionsother people’s opinions
who you surround yourself withpast events or mistakes
your personal growththe way other people behave
the way you spend your timeunexpected situations or events
your response to difficult situationstraffic/airline delays

5. Practice Mindfulness, Calmness, and Serenity

Tapping into your inner calm is another thing you can do for a peaceful mind. 

Here are some ideas: 

  • Develop a regular meditation practice
  • Make journaling a part of your daily routine
  • Take deep breaths ( I underestimated the power of deep breathing for far too long – give it a go if you’ve never tried it) 

If you’ve read some of my other posts, you know that my go-to for meditation is Michael Sealy on YouTube. FYI – I only listen to him at night before bed.

6. Tighten Your Circle of Support

Having people in your life that support you, want you to be happy, and care about your well-being are important. These are the people you turn to when life is… lifing

My support system is my therapist, a trusted family member, and my partner.

Yes, my circle is super small, but this works for me. I value all of the other relationships I have with people in my life, but everyone plays a different role – that doesn’t mean I love them any less.

Common Peace Stealers and How to Deal

Now that you have some tips to manifest inner peace, let’s outline some peace stealers and ways to deal with those challenges.

Toxic Situations 

I do a really good job of avoiding toxic situations and toxic people. It’s because I have a special superpower – introversion. 

If you notice you’re always in some drama or some he say/she say stuff, it may be time to reevaluate your circle and close relationships.

How to Deal: Prioritize your self-care. Learn to put yourself and your needs first. Take the time to rest, recharge, and regroup. This stillness can provide you with the clarity you need to really find inner peace and happiness.

Your Past

Sometimes your past mistakes or decisions creep up into your thoughts. You spend countless hours thinking about what you should have done or could have done.

It’s not a good use of time. You can’t change what has already happened.

How to Deal: Live in the present moment. Focus instead on forgiving yourself. Reflect on the lessons learned and how much you have grown. Express gratitude for all the good in your life.

Negative Thoughts

Negative thoughts and emotions are not good for your mental peace. It can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Leaving you feeling down and exhausted.

How to Deal: Change your thought patterns. I know this is easier said than done because it took me YEARS to be able to effectively do this, and still sometimes I struggle. Cultivating a sense of self-awareness, going on a spiritual journey, and speaking with a therapist helped me with this the most.

Make the Decision to Live Peacefully

Choosing to find peace in your own life is a form of personal growth. You’re deciding who and what gets your time and energy. 

You realize that you’re in control of yourself, and your reactions and that you have the ability to handle what life throws your way.

Decide to manifest peace for a more serene and satisfying life. I DID.
