The Benefits of Cultivating Peace of Mind
Aside from simply being pleasant, living with peace of mind has many important perks. Especially where the Law of Attraction is concerned, a peaceful state of mind allows for far greater manifestation skills. A person who has cultivated peace of mind will not be swayed by the troubles of each day, in that while they may feel momentary stress, their emotional levels will not be spiking up and down as others do. Let's look at ways in which you may begin to create a peaceful state of mind within yourself.
First, you absolutely need to set aside some uninterrupted time with which to do absolutely nothing. Why nothing? Because that is what meditation is. You must be able to sit or lie, without falling asleep, and allow your mind to wear itself out. Once that has happened, you will be overcome with an incredibly serene feeling, verging on ecstatic. This is a pure, open state of mind. This is also what it feels like to be fully in the present moment.
There are so many benefits to meditation that I can only go into one or two here, but the most important by far is that in experiencing the mind in a shut-off state, you will learn to shut off your mind at will. That means that whenever your mind is persistently bugging you, you can stop it immediately. No more insomnia because "I just kept thinking in circles". No more A.D.D. moments where you just can't seem to focus. You will be able to stop, take a breath, halt your mind, and then refocus on whatever it is you are doing.
Once you begin to experience peace of mind, you will be far less prone to dive into negative thinking patterns, and you will be more aware of your thought processes in general. Having begun mastery of your mind, you will be more conscious of what your mind is doing, and how it is affecting you. This is tremendously important, as your mind is the basis for your reality. Your thoughts bring about your emotions and your emotions fuel the Law of Attraction. Therefore your thought processes manifest the reality around you. By taking control over your mind, you can dictate the reality you live in.
That is the very basis for cultivating peace of mind - it will allow you to enjoy life more fully and to have far more control when exercising the Law of Attraction willfully to manifest your desires.
