Sitting in silence is one of the most precious gifts you can give yourself. And today I will share with you 9 of the many benefits sitting in silence can bring and the many ways in which it can transform you and your life.
1. Sitting in silence teaches you the value of words.
The beautiful thing about sitting in silence is that it teaches you the value of words and how powerful they truly are. Silence teaches you to speak only when it’s truly necessary, and only about that which is kind, loving and life-giving.
2. Silence helps you to remember who you truly are.
Sitting in silence helps you remember who you truly are underneath it all and why you’re here on this planet. It helps you reconnect with the center of your being and the Truth of who you are.
3. Sitting in silence gives you courage.
Stillness helps you find the inner strength, courage, and confidence to be all that life created you to be so that you can live your life in alignment with your purpose.
4. Sitting in silence helps you find peace of mind.
Silence helps you find that peace which transcends all understanding – a state of being this noisy world knows little or nothing about – so that you can remain peaceful, calm and centered amidst all life’s many challenges and trials.
5. Sitting in silence helps you to open your heart.
The world teaches us to be critical and judgmental towards one another. To notice our differences and look at them as a reason to keep our distance from one another. But silence is wise. Silence teaches you to embrace compassion, love, humility, and understanding. To recognize yourself in your fellow human beings and to love them as you would want them to love you.
6. Sitting in silence helps you let go of the illusion of separation.
The noise that’s present in our day to day lives keeps most people from experiencing the ONEness of all things. But silence helps us to remember. Sitting in silence helps us to Know the ONEness of all things, not just mentally – through thoughts and ideas, but spiritually – through direct contact and experience.
7. Sitting in silence helps you experience your bliss.
The world offers nothing of lasting value. But silence does. Silence helps you tap into your own bliss so that you can experience the delicious feeling that comes from being ONE with all that life created you to be, and ONE with everything.
8. Sitting in silence helps you tap into your soul’s wisdom.
There is wisdom in the world and True Wisdom in the silence. And through stillness, you can tap into your soul’s wisdom and access feelings, and experiences that are out of this world.
9. Sitting in silence helps you to connect with the Divine within.
It is in those moments of stillness you can hear the voice of God. Only through silence, you can have direct contact with the Source of all things. And the great masters, mystics and spiritual teachers of the world knew this to be true:
“God’s one and only voice is silence” ~ Herman Melville
“Be still, and know that I am God!” ~ Psalm 46:10
“Silence is the language of God, all else is poor translation.” ~ Rumi
It is in silence that you can hear the voice of God. Only through silence, can you have direct contact with the Source of all things.
