We don’t have to suffer disharmony, complaints and illness. On the contrary: inner balance and harmony are natural states of being. It is simply eclipsed by inner and external influences. On closer inspection, inner balance is another title for inner peace. Irrespective of its name, it is always about the harmonious interplay between spirit, mind and body.
Permanently anchored, inner balance grows out of spiritual growth, a spiritual ideal and conscious integration of the spiritual laws, also known as cosmic laws and universal laws.
Inner balance can also come about spontaneously, but is very much supported by external planning and internal work. That is why directives are available for, e.g., conducive nutrition, literature and tips on healthy habits in general, including self-healing »
Preparations in the early hours of the morning, for instance, with its calm and rising energies, are real helpful. Whatever you choose, yoga, tai chi, breathing exercises, meditation, or self-treatment with spiritual energies: a regular and conscious orientation of the day, promotes inner balance, whereby 'being centred in your own being' radiates into everyday living, and to other people.
Certain disharmonious external influences are then not even noticed. The balanced state of mind neutralises influencing discrepancies. Like a rock, on which seeds fall that are unable to root. Therefore, when we bring ourselves into balance, or, in the event of an imbalance, quickly restore balance, we support well-being, regardless of what is happening around us.
Inner balance brings us fulfilment, makes us joyous and keeps us healthy. A feeling of calm and warmth sets in, a feeling of trust, a being held and connected, a silent joy of the heart. Together with a slowing down of thought and action provides well-being in ourselves, and others.
Inner balance is both an expression of individual action, and an overall balanced and conscious life. The affirmation of a harmonious way of life, helps us to bring order to the cells in the body, to the emotions and thoughts, and unto a positive state of living. This is made easier, when we look at the meaning of life from a holistic view-point.
Your life should have four effective pillars for your inner and outer balance:
Daily life, firmly based on these four pillars, and adapted to the need of each individual, leads to inner balance and a holistically based state of health.
Short-term measures and thoughts also help us:
Knowing about spiritual principles can have a strong sense of order and harmonising effect on all processes of events. These laws are based on the seven cosmic laws derived of, by the scholar Hermes Trismegistos. Once we live more and more in harmony with these laws, and experience its dynamics, higher spiritual order, in forms of increased harmony and inner peace, will be palpable and present in our lives.

Meditation is a very helpful tool with which to gradually acquire a state of inner balance and harmony. It is a process that takes place inside a person, but can also be seen as alignment towards the Centre. Research has shown, that patients, trained in meditation can find inner balance, irrespective of severe physical pain.
When observing our trains of thoughts, we may realise the movement of either leading us into the past - whereby memories, regrets, anger, resentment, remorse, and judgment can arise - or, they may lead into a future, driven by worry and fear, need or/and a desire of recognition, and of planning. This habitual occurrence can result in a constant grasping, by which we might not even notice a state of imbalance arising, within which we miss the moment of a true, precious livingness that takes place at this moment.
An existing spiritual formula makes it easy to find a way from wanting (grasping) to being - I want peace - 'I' is ego, 'wanting' desire. Remove ego and desire and you will have peace.
We may want to ask, do we really want to think our 'old' thoughts, or, perhaps not? During meditation, by releasing habitual thinking processes that we witness consciously, we create an important step forward in interrupting mental automatisms and thought patterns. And how much freedom, clarity and beauty awaits us when we unburden and retrain the mind in this way.
In releasing these thoughts, a Zen Buddhist visualisation becomes helpful here, in which we are invited to visualise these emerging thoughts in the form of floating leaves on a river. We are asked to observe and acknowledge, and then also release these into the flow of the waves. When the next thought appears, it equally passes as a floating leaf, then the next one, and the next one. All these passing thoughts are consciously perceived, to then also be consciously released into the perpetual-bubbling movement of the stream.
At times a thought of judgement may appear towards ourselves or towards our neighbour. It may start with 'I should ...' or 'He should ...' or 'If she doesn't finally do this or that ...,' etc. This mindset brings us into friction with the Real. At times, we might deny the presence of Now. Frictional losses can appear, by which we tend to transfer our dissatisfaction to our surroundings and into the collective consciousness.
Let us therefore not criticise anybody or anything without due cause. Rather, let us take better care of our own inner growth and our own business. As orientation, let us set spiritual goals and ideals. Above all, refrain from placing too high a value on recognition and reassurance by other people, but rather practice forgiveness and redemption in return.
In looking at this small selection of helpful tools, it becomes evident that inner balance is clearly not achieved by adding something, but rather by letting go and reducing; omitting everything that separates us from that eternal peace that exists within. Words such as serenity, surrender and being compassionately detached, express the fruit of releasing and letting-go. The challenge and necessity of these qualities in today's overstimulated world are great. Almost everywhere, digital vicissitude has become part of life, and is the major reason for excess information, resulting in increased restlessness and irritability in human beings.
However, deep within us is Light, peace and silence that we can access. Silence is a prerequisite of health, peace and harmony. In stillness, by simply directing our senses from outside inward, free from our mental and emotional patterns, we sense that our inner life offers complete fulfilment. A continuous connection to a nourishing, powerfully effervescent stream of life awaits us. The more regularly this contact is undisguised and made available, the more often we will not only experience inner peace, but also moments of spontaneously arising deep joy. Its cause and origin can usually not be assigned externally; it just emerges and fulfils us completely and unconditionally. Its origin is within.
'Be still and know that I am GOD.' (Psalm 46:10) - Be still and know that I am God in you. Be still; let the rhythm of stillness emerge in your own being, then follow it by way of an act of surrender that connects you with the people of this world.
Silence is therefore very important for inner balance. All mystical teachings aim at the internalisation and spiritualisation of the human being, and contain the practice of silence. In practicing these, we will receive an awareness that is beyond human conception. It is said that human beings must be silent, as words and concepts are inadequate for the divine.
Realigning of the spine and the liberation of the oblique pelvis are two aspects of spiritual straightening, whereby these two lines of energy return to its balance through the gift of the innate impulse. However, the real impact is far more than just body balance, as the one treated becomes whole in a new way of inner-outer harmony.
As the spine is freed and straightened, the chakras, the energy centres, also return to their innate balance. With the freeing of the life force, cells, organs and systems are better served. Each chakra corresponds to one of the spiritual laws, whereby they blend in unison with the universal principles, and become aware of an inner guidance that gifts us with trust and stability.
