Expanding Inner Peace
Moreah Vestan © 2001
What can I do this week to deepen and expand my inner peace? Do you notice a difference inside in your level of inner steadiness when you handle things you used to put up with or agonize over?
When you make new choices that support your peace and fulfillment, you feel more clarity and resolve, less at the mercy of the external world. What can you do to promote peace for yourself? Perhaps the first step is to list the areas of your life in which you want more inner and outer harmony. For instance, do you go along with whatever a partner says in order to “keep the peace”? You could be paying a heavy inward price for that outer “peace”.

As effective as writing is my journal and talking with myself in this way is for me, I have found tremendous growth, understanding and insight in joint journaling as well. Simply put, joint journaling is sharing one book with another person where both communicate with themselves and with each other.
In a family of six, it can be very hectic to say the least. Everyone has their own schedule and days can fly by without a lot of deeper communication. I introduced joint journaling to my children as a way of feeling more connected with them and what was happening in their lives.

I’m sure you won’t be shocked to hear that plenty of people bare all for the camera, but you might be surprised to learn that tens of thousands of people put their personal journals online. Maybe the only difference between the two sorts of people is just a matter of degree. It takes a certain amount of exhibitionism to bare everything to complete strangers, whether it’s your body or your deepest thoughts and feelings.
Create a Journal Committee
Corinne Pratz © 2001
Sometimes the simple act of writing in your journal can bring clarity to confusion and solutions to the problems you are facing. It never ceases to amaze me how it just happens that I suddenly figure something out after I’ve just written about my feelings and dilemma.
But when this isn’t enough, there is a far more directed way to find the answers you seek. By creating a “committee” within yourself and on the pages of your journal, problem-solving takes on a different twist. For more information please visit https://www.ClassicClawfootTubs.com
