Starting anything new is exciting but sometimes we do not know exactly what to do or how to do it. This page is full of tips and tools, from experienced meditators, who have lots of ideas and tried and tested ways of approaching spiritual concepts. All these ideas are designed to put everything into practice easily and make everything simple. Just click and collect as many tips and tools as you need.

Your choice about old personal baggage

Heavy emotional baggage is hard work to carry. You would not choose to lug an extra heavy backpack when hiking, so why would you choose to carry deep and distress-filled emotions from your past on your shoulders today?

Tip: Realise your history does not serve you now, let it go. Lead the life you want to live by letting go of the life you once led! let it go.

Overcome guilt

Guilt and feeling guilty is like rocking a rocking chair – back and forth, back and forth – and going nowhere! Better to just get out of the chair.

Tip: Ask yourself - what can I do to move my emotional state? How can I make amends? How can I deal with forgiving myself or others involved in what happened? Then act on what you feel is constructive to deal with the situation. Doing this will help you feel better about yourself.

If you start something, finish it!

Successfully finishing a task is an accomplishment worth celebrating. Often we have many bits of unfinished projects in our lives which both clutter and overload our minds. Whenever possible, complete what you set out to do and release anything unfinished– this gives you a sense of achievement and peace of mind.

Tip: Sometimes it requires breaking a task down into small chunks that can be completed over time, and finishing them before starting something new.

Below are a selection of tips and resources gathered from around the world of the BKWSU. Wanting to experience peace of mind can be a powerful driver in our lives but HOW? to live our lives in a simple practical manner, can become an added stress!

Some advice and suggestions about how to view life…

Design your very own sanctuary because taking a moment to “get away from it all” is something we all love to do.

Tip: Drop distractions including switching off your phone, listen to soothing music and sit in a place (a sanctuary) where you feel calm in your special space. Finding solitude is a good way to review your world, recent events and to develop new dreams. Silent moments provide mini-retreats for you to refresh, replenish and renovate the soul.

Freedom from fear(s)

Fear is a powerful emotion, when let loose in our minds. It builds walls inside ourselves, the tallest of which is the one between our real self and our perceived self. Fear has the ability to burrow into our deepest places, to dictate both our awareness and behaviour, literally poisoning everything that makes up our lives. One of fear’s powers is how insidiously it runs in our subconscious mind, like a lullaby, making our conscious sleep.

Tip: Notice how your world is driven by what you fear, then remind yourself that this emotion is not yours, it just follows your fear-filled thoughts.

Thought of the Day

Attachment

If I cling to the past, the present becomes difficult and the future seems impossible.
