International Day of Peace Instructions

By · September 21, 2009 · Filed in Information

Until such a time when everyday can be a day of peace, let us celebrate that which we have, even if it is but one day out of 365. However, just because it is one day doesn’t mean that you have to only practice peace for 24 hours.

Today,  September 21, is the International Day of Peace. It is a time for us to join hands, link minds and align with the spirit of all who are simultaneously sending prayers, meditations and positive intentions for world peace.

As you can see, there are many ways in which one can participate. In the event that you are still unsure how exactly you can help with this amazing initiative, please find the following instructions as per given by the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI):

Start With Your Imagination

You can help simply by envisioning the peaceful world that you want to live in. Creation starts with thought, desire and imagination….the same as desiring a new house, job, etc. Thoughts, desires and imagination create an energetic blueprint for what we want; then taking action steps towards our goal helps to create the building blocks for intentions to manifest.

Care Focus Peace Technique

For a month, in honor of Peace Day, let’s take five minutes a day (or what ever is convenient for you) to envision the world as you would want it to be. Here are some ideas to get your brainstorming started:

A world that respects individual human rights and authentic communication, has balanced, conscious leadership and compassionate governing systems worldwide, values the preservation of resources, has love and respect for animals and environmental balance. A world that provides food, pure water, shelter and world peace for all.

You have the creative freedom to create your own additions as you see the needs and desires of the world. Think about what problem in the world do you want to address, or what solution were you born to help solve. Remember, the most important part of this technique is to connect with vision with your emotions. When you enrich your vision with genuine feelings from your heart’s desire it breathes life into your intentions.

Close with a moment of gratitude and the request that whatever manifests only be the highest best for the whole.

Our common link with each other is that we all care. By honoring our differences, we multiply the strength of connection and effectiveness in our care for the planet and each other. This is what the planetary shift is about – differences coming together in the heart to co-create a greater wholeness.

Guiding Principles for GCI Care Focus

As the Global Shift is playing out, there are a growing number of situations that unfold continuously around the world that could benefit from focused care. This makes it difficult to choose a GCI focus that would suit everyone at any given time. With GCI members from many different countries and cultures, it’s understandable that this would influence personal feelings of what would be most appropriate for a GCI care focus.

At times when a global issue is more important to you than the GCI care focus selected, we suggest this: Spend a little time on the GCI care focus, then spend most of your time sending love and compassion to whatever situation you feel is most important. Some of you may choose to hold a vision of the planet in a state of perfection, which can help manifest how we would want it to be. The most important thing is for us all to love, accept, and respect without judgment each others expressions of care.

The techniques suggested by the GCI team won’t always feel appropriate for everyone because of our many cultural backgrounds and personal belief systems. This is very understandable. When this is an issue, we invite you to use your own heart’s choice of technique, prayer, meditation, affirmation, visualization, etc., when sending love and compassion to the planet and its inhabitants. It’s our genuine coherent love and care that make a difference, much more so than method or technique.

Thank you for your participation.
