Listening to Yourself

There are strong voices all around us. Especially when it comes to managing health and wellness. It is up to us to listen, take it all in, and decide what resonates. Being open is as important as understanding why a voice may feel too strong. Those in the healthcare field have a generous body of knowledge. But answers are all around us. They are in the food we eat, what we put in and on our bodies, and in nature. Even the venom of scorpions is helping cancer research! Striving to be open and present is monumental. Your inner voice is rarely wrong.

The Practice of Silence

Whether it is a silent retreat, a day, an hour, or just a few minutes, the practice of silence is powerful. Silence gives the mind a glorious opportunity to recalibrate. Sitting in silence enables the practitioner to see thoughts for what they really are. As events that come and go – that may carry emotion – depending upon the state of mind. Observing thoughts objectively and with awareness enables us to not get caught up in them or necessarily believe them. Like watching waves on the ocean’s surface. Where, just below, there is calm.

Sink into silence. You won’t be disappointed!
