Point #2 of Sitting in Silence – Sitting in Silence Day 4



Yesterday we talked about how sitting in silence creates room in your life for peacefulness.

Today we’re talking about another cool thing that sitting in silence does for you: it slows you down.

I don’t know about you but most days I feel as if I’m pulled and poked and pushed and prodded in a million directions. Social tells me I need to do certain things, the media tells me I need to do other things, the boss tells me I need to complete all the projects on my desk, my neighbor is already beginning spring clean-up outside and I haven’t even begun last year’s fall clean-up!


On and on it goes!

When you sit in silence, even for a few moments, you begin to feel your natural pace. I guarantee you it’s slower than the pace the world tries to force on you.

If you haven’t done your sitting in silence yet, let’s do it together. Right now. Even if you’ve already had your sitting in silence session, do another one with us.   It’s so good for you!

You can sit, stand, or recline. The important thing is to feel comfortable. Let yourself relax into the support–the chair, bed, couch, floor. Let it take your weight. Trust that it’ll hold you because it will–no worries!

As you let yourself sink into the support, feel peace gently surround and infuse you. Then feel yourself going at a pace that pleases you–that feels natural to you. Hold that thought and feeling. When you come back to your day, bring that pace into your life. At this time you may only have certain circumstances that allow you this more comfortable pace, such as when you are at home. The more you do it, though, the more it will seep into other areas of your life.

Keep sitting in silence!

Something better is up ahead!
