Bringing Balance to the Chaos: Simple Rituals for Finding Peace

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without”- Siddhartha Gautama

Chaos, a word we all know and could use a whole lot less of in our lives. Chaos rushes through our lives like a herd of wild horses, leaving stress and ruin behind in its wake. So how do we push through the mayhem plaguing our lives and begin a path to peace? The first thing is to realize that peace isn’t achieved by outside forces; it begins from within. A person will never find true peace if they seek it from material things or depend on others to create it for them. Finding rituals that help you bring your inner peace to life will lead you to bring balance to the chaos.

One of the ways you can do this is to practice finding peace in chaos. This can be done sometimes by simply taking a moment to ground yourself in the now. Instead of worrying about your next 3 steps or the next few tasks you need to complete, take a deep breath, allow yourself to be centered, and allow that very second to be the nucleus of your thoughts. Grounding and centering yourself amidst the disorder will give you the ability to be in the now thus eliminating the stress from the future. Balancing the chaos is not always about making everything simple and easy but about unearthing the inner strength and belief in yourself so that you can move through it without strife.

Another simple ritual you can start your day with is counting your blessings. This is not a comparison activity. Never think that you are not allowed to feel bad or wrong just because you do have blessings. Instead, just make a special effort to appreciate the great parts of your life, and push back the negative. Reflect on the parts that bring you joy and that will be your focal point thus allowing your inner peace to strengthen rather than the cynicism derived from chaos.

Meditation, yes I know it’s a ritual that’s recommended for so much. That’s because it works. Meditation is a wonderful ritual for delivering the peace that is needed to balance chaos. Taking a few moments (or longer) to meditate will allow you to be present and stop letting the stress defeat you. This goes hand in hand with centering yourself. The most important part of inner peace is being one with yourself, and meditation is a wonderful way to focus only on your own thoughts and feelings without allowing the outside world in.

Take small breaks throughout your day to say a prayer, speak a daily mantra, go for a small nature walk, drink a calming cup of tea, or do a few simple yoga poses. This will give you a chance to relax and center yourself instead of moving from one stressful chore to the next. This is important because you not only need to start your day being grounded but the peace from your morning rituals needs to be recharged. So, take that break, and give yourself permission to revel in the tranquility.

Using these small everyday rituals will bring calmness to your world. This can lead to comfort, better habits, positive vibes, and just a happier and serene you. Find your rituals, balance your chaos, and let your inner peace prevail.
