Affirmations For Inner Peace

Finding inner peace or any kind of peace hasn’t always been my forte. In fact, throughout my life, I have fought against this so-called peace. It has been there for the taking, but more often than not, I would choose to live in suffering, worry and pain, without forgetting the neverending self-loathing. Then again, I didn’t know any better! 

The Present Version Of Me!

Fast forward to the present day, and all I want is peace. I crave it, I strive for it, it’s my main objective moving forward. The kind of peace I seek is not the unsociable, stay home and away from people kind, although that’s a good kind of peace too. No, I seek the kind of peace that makes my soul feel light. The present version of me wants happiness, contentment, acceptance, and serenity. 

In Search Of Inner Peace

In other words, as I mentioned above, I want to find my inner peace. To know and trust that I am exactly where I need to be. That everything in my life is happening for my greater good.

Feeling positive about the future whilst remaining grounded in the present moment is what I constantly strive for.  I desire the ability to find joy in each moment. To watch a sunset and stare in awe. To feel the air on my face and be grateful for the gift of life. Acknowledging and accepting that challenges will come my way, but trusting that I will overcome them no matter what. But mostly what I really want is to master the art of quieting my mind. Because if my mind is calm, everything else becomes clear. 

Affirmations

Whilst there are many ways to achieve inner peace, today we are just going to tackle the practice of affirmations. If you have read any of my articles before this one, you will already know that I practise self-care every day. In my daily self-care routine, I set aside a few minutes for affirmations. Yes, I know many will say, “Just because I say it doesn’t mean I’m going to believe it”, or “Telling myself I’m awesome is just plain awkward”. That was me a few years ago. I lived in such a state of negativity, that I wasn’t even willing to try anything that could possibly help me live a better life. 

The Science Behind Affirmations

Now let’s not confuse affirmations with magic. There is no magic behind it. Positive affirmations have to be backed up by action. It’s unrealistic to think that you can change aspects of your life by just repeating words and not showing up and doing the work. 

One of my favourite affirmations is ‘I am enough’. I say it daily and often. However, it would be fruitless to affirm this every morning if, during the rest of my day, I end up using hateful words towards myself. For example, “I am useless, I cannot do this”, “I am fat”, and “I am so unlucky”…..you get the gist? In order for affirmations to rewire your brain, you also have to be mindful of your own inner conversation.  It takes practice, but just like a muscle, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. 

Affirmations To Find Inner Peace

Turbulence, it’s unavoidable. Life happens, and the mind feels as though it’s drowning in rough seas, searching for a lifeboat, a lifeline.  Recently I experienced a subtle amount of turbulence, which is why, right now, all I want is peace. My mind wants it, my soul needs it! So to achieve this, I prioritise self-care, and one of the most useful tools in my arsenal are the following affirmations to find inner peace.
