Now that we’ve done a little cleaning and clearing of our environments as well as our minds and emotions, we have a little bit of space.
That means we have room for Silence.
Even if it’s only a tiny smidgen of room, it’s enough.
It’s through Silence that we can re-train ourselves to sense our Inner Wisdom.
Ideally, sit in Silence at the beginning of the day and then again right before bed. If this doesn’t work for you, then any time is a good time. Silence can be very restorative—and restful.
It doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out thing—a few minutes can be beneficial. You don’t have to hold any particular position such as sitting in a lotus position. You don’t have to wear any type of special clothing—regular clothes or even your jammies will do. No special equipment is needed either.
All you need is yourself and a few minutes to just sit quietly.
When in Silence, sense the world around you—are there birds chirping? Do you hear traffic sounds? Is the sun just coming up—can you feel its warmth? Can you taste the breeze or do you notice the scent of the fresh air?
After doing this for a few minutes, turn your senses inward. Are you hearing the Still Small Voice? Do you feel a tug or a pull of a desire?
No worries if you don’t sense your Inner Wisdom now. And don’t worry if it seems like the only thing on the inside of you is Monkey Mind, or worry or sadness, or frustration. Listening to these, really listening as if it’s a beloved loved one trusting you with their fears, disappointments, and annoyances, you’ll gain valuable insights. Keep listening and soon you’ll sense your Inner Wisdom lovingly and gently offering comfort and help.
Your Inner Wisdom has always been right there for you. It’s there for you now and it will always be there for you, no matter what.
Don’t worry or be afraid or be hesitant. We’ll do this together. We’ll help each other and hold each other’s hand. No worries!
Remember, we’re doing this because Something Better is Up Ahead!
