A Brief Guide to Finding Inner Peace – by Steven Howard and his Inner Guide
This acronym, O.P.E.N. Y.O.U.R. H.E.A.R.T., came to me as I was writing the final chapter of my latest soon-to-be-published book, “Finding Inner Peace,” and I experienced an inner urging to get this simple but powerful guide to this state of mind called inner peace into the hands, hearts, and minds of more people who are on a spiritual journey and searching for it. So, here it is.
Open Your Heart
Only hold in mind what you want more of.
Prepare each day by beginning it with some quiet prayer time.
Elevate your thoughts to elevate the quality of your life.
Never doubt what your intuition is telling you.
You are an exquisite and unique expression of God and don’t ever doubt it!
Offer your very best in all that you do and know it is enough!
Unbind yourself from doubts and unforgiveness that keep you from expressing who you truly are!
Relax, slow down, rest, and take in the beauty all around you.
Hear what others have to say and offer with a mind open to discovery.
Enter each new day with an awareness of God’s Presence in all things.
Allow time in your day for unbridled fun and give it your all!
Review your day and learn what you can from it.
Trust in God first and then in yourself; trust in others will follow as a result.
Since I’ve come to understand that whatever inspiring ideas come to me from Spirit, I know they are for me to remember and use, and I have made it a fairly regular habit to read this simple guide each morning. Perhaps you’ll decide to do that as well.
Love & Light, Steven
