We're always in the state of in-between, because life is always moving on, and if you make peace here and now, then you're clearing the path to allow yourself to receive.
With peace as your only focus you'll notice how much better you feel. Instead of worrying about the outcome of your future, which only spoils your present, you will begin to feel happier.
Peace of mind is the source of happiness.
When you're able to let thoughts come and go, instead of attaching significance to them until they build up and take you away from peace, then every area of your life will improve.
I'm a practical realist, and I know some days you'll be knocked off your feet by events, but you don't have to stay knocked down.
The more you practice changing your negative thoughts to neutral, the more you notice things that make you feel more positive. Changing your thoughts changes the pattern of your brain, and you can develop new ways of thinking at any time.
It's a new habit to learn - one which will benefit you every day. When you can regularly return to peace, you'll find when you're knocked again you won't get knocked down as far, and you'll be able to get up again more quickly.
You're entitled to feel all the human emotions of anger and sadness, but holding on to them doesn't make you feel good. Becoming more peaceful allows you to accept things as they are, and creates space for you to see the way forward.
The red mist of anger only ever clouds your view. The blanket of sadness weighs you down, and smothers your ability to see positive signs.
Make your bed your best friend to help you create new habits. Every night before you sleep, and every morning before you open your eyes use the power of your subconscious mind to think peaceful thoughts.
I recommend listening to the ZPoint Session Recording every night to let go of all the stresses of the day. You will experience deep relaxation, and blissful peace, so you will enjoy a good night's rest to restore your energy for the next day.
As soon as you wake, become conscious of your first thoughts. Stop them from demanding a cup of coffee, or reminding you to pack your child's sports kit, or making you feel anxious about an appointment.
Taking 5 minutes for yourself will spread benefits throughout your whole day. Breathe slowly and deeply, then smile - no matter how you feel (it directly improves your mood), and repeat to yourself from the ZPoint Recording:
"And that makes me feel" - then add your cue word like a mantra - love,love,love,love,love - in-between.
Your thoughts will slow down until you feel peaceful and calm. Take a deep breath, and drink water to set you up for a wonderful day.
The more often you practice ZPoint every night and morning, the more easily you will be able to set your clear intention for what you want to receive. Peace of mind removes the barriers of fear and doubt, so you will ease into the flow of the Universe, instead of having your conscious thoughts get in the way.
This simple new habit of relaxing in bed every night and morning will transform how you feel, and increase your ability to cope with whatever life throws at you.
