Center of Calm Meditation For a Happier Life

The center of calm meditation accomplishes two objectives. One to learn who to quickly find your center of calm through the use of your breath. Two to strengthen that center of calm by practicing being centered in peace, tranquility, calm, stillness, and balance. 

Victor Frankl best expressed the reason for operating from a center of calm with this famous quote.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

That power to choose is very dependent on your mental state. 

What is your state of mind?

If we are caught up in all the turmoil of our day, all the pressing activities we need to do, the stress of our jobs, our relationship with our boss, our fight with our spouse in the morning, then our chance of getting to that space to choose our response is slim.

So instead of calmly deciding what our best response would be, or how we would respond to the current situation as our best selves, how we would respond from a center of love, understanding, and empathy…we react from our survival instincts. 

That’s when we say and do things that we later regret. We find ourselves responding in anger, out of fear, or anxiety. 

We conduct ourselves in a way that is not congruent with our values. 

Then we beat ourselves up thus lower our vibrational tone.

You’ve heard the expression from bad to worse. 

I am sure you can recall a time when this happened to you. 

So, would it not be better to take that breath, enter that center of calm, and respond congruently with your core values? ( If you aren’t sure what those core values to embrace download this free core values assessment tool.)

Instead of engaging in that downward spiral, take a higher vibrational response by stopping before you respond and decide your optimum course of action.

That’s is what this meditation is all about.

I suggest you bookmark the page so you can come back often to strengthen that center of calm.



The various noises you hear during the meditation were intentionally added to help you stay focused in that center of calm. LOL. Would believe a test for me? The birds contributed their parts for ripe plantaneos. 

On our Facebook Page Be-Inspired, we posted three suggestions for maintaining that center of calm. I post them here in this gallery.
