The Daily Practices are simple, yet profound…

 

Each daily practice begins with a quote from a variety of historical peace keepers such as Gandhi, John Lennon, priests, rabbis…persons from all cultures and traditions.  The quotes introduce an idea, which are then followed by a short teaching about that day’s practice.   The next page provides that day’s prayer, meditation, or mantra.

Your peace meditation practice may take as little time as 2 minutes, however; advanced practitioners may stay in the meditation for 20 minutes or longer.

PPG-GANDH-PEACE-IS-PATH

THE TEACHING

Gandhi fully understood the Laws of the Universe, and for this reason he knew that acts of violence would only breed more violence.

When others condemn us, or display some other form of un-kindness, it makes logical sense to protect oneself. The most difficult practice is that of equanimity, or maintaining a state of peace, no matter what the outside world brings our way.

This practice requires us to re-visit each of our inner beliefs and surrender those beliefs to our state of un-wavering inner peace. Attaining and maintaining a state of equanimity requires a life-long commitment to its practice. You will be introduced to it in today’s meditation.

Let us begin by allowing peace to arise fully within.

 

THE DAILY PRACTICE

BREATHING MANTRA MEDITATION

Come into a comfortable sitting or reclined position.

Close your eyes and allow stillness to occur. Focus on observing your inhale and exhale for 5 full breath cycles.

As you obtain stillness and are comfortable with it, begin the breath mantra meditation below.

INHALE MANTRA

“I breathe in Peace.”

Imagine peace filling you with each breath you take.

EXHALE MANTRA

“I exhale Peace to All.”

Imagine peace exiting your nostrils, and beginning to spread out into the world. Allow your Mind’s Eye to guide you as you offer this gift to all peoples, and all beings.

Try to maintain this breathing mantra meditation for at least 10-15 minutes.

If it helps, you may wish to enjoy reading some inspirational texts just before and just after your meditation practice.

Om Shanti
(Perfect Peace)

This book is amazing and insightful and everyone should own this. It should be laying next to your Bible! Practicing peace has helped me so much in every aspect of my life and Melinda, the author, is an amazing and powerful woman that has uncovered the truth of our purpose here and is helping to spread that to the rest of us. Through mindfulness and cultivating peace, we can change the world!  Thank you for writing this and following your dharma!  Buy the book and buy a few for friends and family, everyone could use more peace in their lives!

Lisa C. – January 4, 2016
Hi Melinda.  Thank you so much for compiling all these helpful prayers and meditations. I feel that I am more at peace with myself and others since I’ve started reading this book.  I decided that I would like another copy of the 31 day prayers for peace to send to my sister in law.  I think she would benefit from reading the prayers, meditations and mantras. It is a beautiful book.

Teresa S. – January 12, 2016
This book has been very helpful with my students.  Thank you for the rush order of 12 books.  Our meditation group has greatly benefited from using the practices and suggestions that you have provided.  

Lynn S. – January 22, 2016
I have noticed that my practice has deepened.  My daily meditation time is now so genuine, profound, and peaceful.  Your book has certainly brought absolute Peace into my life.

Susan S. – February 18, 2016
Your books have flown out of our office, please bring more!  Also, those who have purchased it constantly talk about the difference it has made in their life.  I love it too!  Being so simple, I am again quite established in a regular meditation practice.  Thank you for that! 

Holly J. – May 22, 2016
I use this book every morning. Don’t know what I would do without it. I notice a HUGE difference on the days I skip. No more…now I begin each and every day in peace. 

CW. – July 22, 2016
I give this book as gifts. It is a perfect gift…I can’t imagine a better one. This gift of peace has helped so many of my friends and family.

Tom B. – October 9, 2016
I’m not much of a reader, generally I prefer online meditations, but the practices in this book have allowed me to engage in my own meditation practices, which have become quite profound. Peace stays with me all day long!

Christy C. – December 2, 2016
Best 10 minutes of each day. From all I have learned, no longer do emotions run my life. Inner peace is the steady guide. I’m all smiles!

Donna B. – March 13, 2017
I am authentically rooted in peace after engaging with this book every day. What a difference. Living from the heart, and peace is my constant guide.
