About Manifesting Peace:
“‘Peace, peace’ they say, but there is no peace!” Today, as in the days of the prophet Ezekiel, peace is elusive. Stress, strife, and worries drain our abilities when we need them most. Here are twelve principles to cultivate peace in your life. An essential ingredient of physical and mental health, peace does not fall from the sky. “Blessed are the peacemakers!” means that peace is made. Peace takes work and effort.
Each chapter offers tangible ways to nurture peace in your everyday life. Inputs from psychology, counseling theory, and wisdom from world religions are followed by prayer and meditation exercises to come closer to God, forgive others, and discern what to do in a particular situation. Try them! Find out which ones work best for you. Peace brings healing, wholeness, and balance.
