It takes courage to sit in silence.
For many all kinds of emotional baggage comes up.
-You fill in the ________.
Just when you think you have repressed them, there they are sitting in the silence with you.
So you decide that you will not sit.
If you do not sit, you do not have to address them, feel them, see them.
I suggest that you give your silent sit a chance.
1-5 minutes if you must.
Slowly increase the time to 15 and 20 minutes.
These are all thoughts.
They are not who you are.
If you give them a chance to escape when you return to the silence day after day you will connect to your true self.
This is the self that creates a space between you and these often, toxic thoughts.
You are able to recognize that they are not you.
You decide that they cannot control you.
They do not serve you.
You can let them go.
This is true freedom.
You cultivate the ability to separate you from your thoughts.
You get to decide which ones to keep and which ones to let go of.
Give the silence a chance.
Let it heal you.
Let it transform you.
Let it show you the way forward.
Let me know if I can help.
