Staying in Peace

Try these practices daily – or like us, multiple times daily – to stay in peace and harmony with the intense energy happening around our planet right now. 

Be present. THIS moment is all we have. There will never be another one. (Eckhart Tolle) The
challenge is to think less about future fears or past grievances so you can appreciate who and
what is around you right now. Appreciate the clothes, food, home, warmth, clients and
friends and family you have. While there are plans and goals, stay present in your moment and follow your heart’s intuition as to what your next steps may be.

Be mindful. Now that you’re in your moment, slow down. Take the time to really notice what you are doing and thinking, and how you are feeling. You can’t see the beauty in everyday things and people if you are rushing around to be productive. Choose to see the best in people, places and things rather than their flaws or quirks. Choose to see the beauty in your life as it unfolds while thinking the thoughts that feel the best. (Abraham Hicks) Stay in your heart by feeling love, appreciation, gratitude, and care as often as possible (see free heart-mind coherence exercises on heartmathinstitute.org).

Breathe. The Breath has been called “the Name of God.” At least five seconds in and five seconds out will automatically start bringing your heart into coherent rhythms, and helps your mind and body feel safe. If I am the ‘instrument,’ it is the Breath of God that plays the beautiful music through me. 

Trust in the Universe. The Unseen is vastly more important than the seen. Faith is literally, “the belief in the unseen.” Trust that unseen, unconditionally- loving forces use EVERYTHING to help you along in your evolutionary path. NO-thing is against you. You can get out of their way of manifesting positive things for you by being as positive as possible while moving in the
direction of excitement and inspiration.

Negative thoughts are lies. Whenever you think thoughts that don’t make you feel good, know that they are lies made up by your egoic mind to keep you small and safe. Fear is a tool of mind control. The choice of our thoughts can the hardest to make! Instead, for every negative thought, flip it into a positive one: I am healthy. I am loved. I am supported fully by the Universe.
This is all going to work out in my favor. Make a list if you have to. Believe these – they are the truth.

 COVER

Smiling Sun by Kay Larch

Raised in Southern California by two artists, Kay Larch says she didn’t follow in their footsteps. She grew up, started a family, moved to South Carolina and built a daycare center that she owned and operated. She filled the center with wall murals and did painting activities and after-school art classes with the kids, but she never considered herself an artist. She found ways to express her creative need for colorful and elaborate surroundings through painting projects she did for fun. 

One day, Larch decided to create a series of acrylic paintings on canvas. Out of curiosity, she submitted her work to a gallery. It was accepted for a show, which led to being featured in an article about the museum, interviews, commissioned work, more shows and the launching of her career as an artist at age 54. Larch is immersed in the art community, has added oil painting and drawing to her repertoire, and creates in a variety of styles. Her acrylic paintings have a comic-book style, while her oil paintings lean more toward realism. She admits she was influenced by growing up as a California hippie, traveling to Tijuana and seeing the vibrant colors of Mexican folk art and simply being an imaginative person. Her work has been featured in galleries, businesses and magazines and she sells original paintings, prints, greeting cards and a line of coloring books, in addition to commissioned work for people all around the world.
