A friend asked me why someone he knows keeps creating dramas and actually seems to purposely provoke people, especially her partner. The answer is in two parts. Firstly it can have to do with our childhood. If our childhood was full of drama and anger and argument then that can become our ‘normal’. We seek to create what for us is normal and don’t often know how to operate outside of it. The second answer encompasses the first and is the real truth of the matter. We reflect, attract and create that which we are inside. This lady obviously wasn’t at peace within herself. She probably had anger, hurt and resentment inside which reflected her outer life. My favourite quote of all time is by Dr Wayne Dyer: “How do you get world peace? You get world peace through Inner peace. If you’ve got a world full of people with inner peace, then you have a peaceful world.” A similar one from the Dalai Lama: “Any vision of peace starts with the individual, in a process of ‘inner disarmament’. I think peace must come through inner peace.” I love my job as a coach and EFT practitioner because I get to bring people to a place of inner peace.
