I recently read an article in a health magazine about intermittent silence: a practice you can do in as little as 10 minutes per day to allow your mind to pause and rest.
You close your mouth and your eyes, and simply listen to the sounds around you while silently watching your thoughts.
This gives your brain a break from processing, thereby reducing the effects of overstimulation (including stress or feelings of overwhelm).
Researchers are now saying that this practice can play a significant role in improving our health, well-being, and spirituality.
This practice appealed to me for two reasons: One, it’s simple, no meditation skills required, and two, the stones have taught me that silence creates a space where Spirit can enter.
One of the core teachings shared by the stones in my recent Light Walker course was that, when we enter into a place of inner silence, we become grounded in the light of our soul and we open gateways to Spirit.
Spirit comes from the Latin spiritus, which means breath/spirit. In silence, we breathe, and Spirit enters us on the breath.
Energies and consciousness can move into a space of silence, within which we can then experience transformation, healing, or enlightenment.
It is an exceptionally powerful practice, one that helps bring us back into alignment with our true selves, and opens us up to the Universe and the Divine.
It also brings us into our sovereignty – in other words, back into our power.
So with intermittent silence, even if you just take 10 minutes to shut your brain down and breathe, you’re allowing Spirit to enter and you’re grounding in the light of your soul.
