Find Inner Peace During the Lockdown
Jun 11, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

Inner peace may seem like it is a distant memory to you right now given the current state of global unrest. It is very easy to allow your mind to wander in a negative direction when we are being bombarded with gloomy news reports and stories in our mainstream media.

Try not to allow this negative programming to influence or hijack your mindset as it can be highly detrimental for your well-being and certainly won’t help with your stress levels.

Inner peace is a journey rather than a destination. There will be times when you experience worry, jealously or anger but these are all a natural part of being a human. The best way to start your journey if you haven’t already begun is to start living well. Eating well, drinking fresh water, exercising, getting enough sleep and plenty of fresh air may seem obvious but they have been the best way to lay the foundations for inner peace.

Emotions can serve us very well as they can be make us feel better in ourselves and they can be used as part of a practice during meditation. However certain emotions such as jealously can be quite destructive if they are not managed properly. Jealousy is borne of a survival mechanism, we learned to envy what others had in a time when no one had much at all. Take time to notice what you have, remember you are on a journey and try to stop comparing yourself to others. If you notice it creeping in, stop it in it’s tracks and try to replace the jealous thought with a positive one about yourself.

Try to focus on the current moment, or now. Worry can be another emotion that can mislead you on your journey to inner peace. When you focus on your worries and thoughts, you will quickly realise that most of them will be based around either the past or the future. Why not try writing these down in a list and notice which of these are problems that exist right now in the present moment. When you think about the present moment, you will find that in most cases, ‘now’ is okay.

Meditation can be very effective tool in your journey to finding inner peace. Here is a visualisation technique that you can practice at home.

Find a quiet spot. You may have a favourable space, try next to a window or somewhere that is silent.

Breathe. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Breathe deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth. At the top of each breath, hold it for three seconds, then silently and mentally count to five on every out breath.

Visualise. Imagine you are looking up at a beautifully bright star on a warm clear night. Notice that this star in particular is burning extra bright tonight.

Feel the energy. As you gaze up, you can feel the energy radiating from the star and you notice something extra special about it. You sense that this star holds the key to everything you need to know to help you go forward successfully in your life. Become completely focused on this tiny bright white light and notice it come closer towards you but still remains the same size. See it come closer until it is hovering just above the crown of your head and staying there. At this point you may feel a tingling sensation or a warm comforting glow. Now you can begin to affirm to yourself the following:

I have great wisdom and understanding

I am aware and enlightened

I understand my journey in life

When you are ready count from one to ten, then open your eyes and come back to full waking consciousness. Connecting with yourself in this way will reinforce all the lessons you have learned on your journey and help you continue to your chosen path.

All the best,


“Nothing can stop a person with the right mental attitude from achieving their goal; nothing on earth can help a person with the wrong mental attitude.”

— Thomas Jefferson

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
