Emotional strength and stability are two of the most valued traits that we try a lot of ways to attain. However, in the current times, it may seem difficult to achieve a sense of equilibrium amidst so many chaotic events. As a collective, we are all stressed more than usual over the last two years, and understandably so. But this article is not to address the events of the past; today, we’re going to take a page from faith and learn how to re-establish peace and harmony from within.
Praying can be highly therapeutic for all those who participate in it, but we often lose sight of the reason why we pray. Let’s take a look at ways in which praying can bring emotional stability and safety from within.
Create a sacred space: When you pray, you establish a connection to the divine. No matter which faith you belong to, praying can help you remove negative feelings and emotions to heal them. This can be done by creating a sacred routine that you dedicate to prayer every day. Be it before bedtime or early in the morning, you can pray in solitude to petition for all that needs to be resolved in your life. Not only will you begin to see a significant difference in your mindset of being divinely guided, but you will also be able to mitigate these roadblocks by yourself easily.
Community and family support: Your community and family play a pivotal role in your mental and emotional wellbeing. Praying as a collective or family can work wonders on your emotional health, since looking at everyone united, and praying for a positive change can bring feelings of safety and security. Similarly, you can offer your petitions to holy clergy like the Wyoming Carmelites to pray for you during their meditations, which amplifies the positivity being sent towards you.
Reflect on your day: Every day brings us different life lessons, where some can be good and the rest may feel disheartening. However, having a steady ritual that you can fall back on to help you process the emotions. Reflecting on your day at the end of your evening while praying can help you find the positive in the mundane and let go of low-vibrational emotions. Try talking to God about your day, or use journaling practices to get it all on paper. The next day, you have a clean slate to make the best of your time with an optimistic outlook!
Ask for guidance: Praying is an excellent conduit for guidance from the supreme power as well as your subconscious mind. Sometimes, you may not be able to find the solution to a seemingly complicated situation, but praying with the intention to find guidance and signs to help you overcome the stress can take the pressure away. People who pray regularly feel as if they’re being looked after by a higher power, which is comforting in such times.
Praying with intention and fervor can help you turn your life around from a worried mind to an abundant mind. Most of our problems are inflamed in our minds, which is what prayers can help soothe. We hope that these methods bring you peace and love that helps you radiate happiness.
