Finding inner peace through… Solitude

Finding inner peace is a long, but worthwhile, process. Although it can’t be acquired overnight, it’s possible to find it by investing in yourself and experiencing a paradigm shift. It takes getting to know yourself and learning what issues are keeping you from finding the peace you need. Solitude can be the perfect opportunity to find harmony with yourself and the universe.

Inner Peace and Being Alone

Inner peace, by definition, can only come from yourself. If you are not comfortable in your own skin, you can’t find inner peace. Being alone is scary whether it’s the idea that we might not find the right person to share our lives with or just the idea of doing something and relying only on ourselves.

In our daily lives, we’re surrounded by people – both physical people and virtual people. At work, at home, at the grocery store, working out, it’s always with others. Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, the internet, email and cell phones also connect us to other people. It creates a cord that’s hard – and scary – to break.

Taking a step away from people is difficult. It’s hard to not feel connected, especially when it’s so easy. But it’s essential for finding inner peace.

The Sounds of Silence

In a hectic world full of noise and busyness, enjoying a few minutes of silence can be key to finding inner peace. Turning off the TV, music, the cell phone, appliances, the car and just sitting at home or somewhere else, in silence, can allow you to reflect on yourself and the things that are keeping you from peace. Sometimes, when we take a step back and enjoy silence, we hear more than when we’re surrounded by the noise of modern life. How do you do it?

Start by listening to the silence. What do you hear? What do you feel? Pay attention to it. Being aware of the silence can make you more attuned to yourself. Focusing on the stillness around you, even if it’s only for an hour, can help you relax, which can help you begin to find some inner peace.

Finding Time to Be Alone

Taking a trip on your own is one way to take a step back. Leave the computer and other devices at home. Turn the cell off unless there’s an emergency, and let people know that you’ll be unavailable for a few days. Check into a hotel for a few nights and relish the time alone.

If that seems like too big of a first step, or you don’t have the means or the time, take an hour a day. Turn off all electronic devices and step away from the kids, spouse, significant other, co-workers, roommates, friends and anyone else who could interrupt. Find a place that you can be alone, whether it’s in your home or at a secluded park. Listen to the silence and to yourself. Find peace within yourself.

By finding peace and joy in solitude, you will never be without it. It can make you more independent and healthier. By learning to be alone, you’ll find peace in it instead of finding that it causes stress, fear and loneliness. It can also teach you a lot about yourself and make you a more whole person.
