Dear editor,

Yes, you can still find inner peace or a sense of calm within ourselves when we understand the bigger picture of our lives, when we can learn to trust our intuition.

I grew up in a small rural community in Central Alberta where time was mostly dedicated to meeting our basic needs for a family of 12. Moved to the big city and ended up with a 35 year career in the banking industry, with several financial designations and at the executive level before I attended a talk presented by Inner Peace Movement of Canada.

I got to a point in life where I began to wonder what more there was to life than 9 5 p.m., two weeks vacation, business, social and family matters. How can we live life if we don’t know why we are here?

I have found through self-understanding and inner guidance that I am able to come to grips with life and the world around me. I was able to find my own solutions and answers to whatever I was experiencing. We all face challenges it is part of what we have come to do. How we handle what we are faced with makes all the difference. We can learn to release the pressure we may be feeling and find harmony within ourselves.

We need to learn to be ourselves, see what we do have more clearly, count our blessings, see how unique we really are and feel good about ourselves all the time. Simply to be the best at whatever we choose to be.

When we accept ourselves and follow our inner desires new ventures, opportunities and solutions do reveal themselves. How often are opportunities lost because we hesitate or we do whatever everyone else thinks we “should or should not” be doing. It’s vital we understand this part of us because it is our guiding mechanism to more joy, fulfillment with a sense of accomplishment which is so much a part of our lives. We need to learn to navigate by our feelings and trust our inherent instincts.

We can find a greater appreciation for all of our experiences and can feel we are master of our situation rather than feeling life controls us. All new beginnings start gradually but what we do today is what we become tomorrow.

I now give these talks, topics also include, seven-year cycles of life, levels of consciousness, directing our thoughts and energy, life purpose, four psychic gifts communication, inner guidance and more. Talks are being presented throughout central Alberta, in Wetaskiwin on Tuesday, October 18 at the Norquest College Campus, 5502 49 Avenue, more info is available at www.innerpeacemovent.ca.

The Inner Peace Movement of Canada, founded in 1964 is a non-profit, educational, self-awareness, community-based program.
