Silence truly is golden. It is nourishing. It is essential. In the silence we can connect, centre, listen. In the silence we can begin to hear that “still small voice” within – the voice of Spirit, of our Soul.

So many think they should be socialising, generally in company and chatting.  They think this is the right way to be – there’s something wrong with you if you want time on your own, if you want to go to bed early, or have a quiet night at home on your own, or don’t want to go to a particular social event or not drink alcohol.

Spending time with others, being in relationship, is very important but, so too, is time alone. It’s all about balance. It’s also about learning to be true to yourself and not going with the crowd – feeling wrong if you think differently.

So much of life can be filled with distractions. So much of life can be numbing out.  We waste a lot of time.

In the silence we can begin to hear that “still small voice” of our Soul speaking to us, loving us, guiding us. This is our compass in life. This is where we need to be checking in – not with what others think or what the world tells us is important if you want to fit in, be cool, be liked.

Take time to sit in silence. Feel the stillness.

Take time to sit and quiet your mind. Slow down. Breathe. Become conscious of the inner you.

Light a candle and sit in silence, stillness, peace.

Find time in your day to play some uplifting music and feel the vibrations of the music touch your Soul.

Take time to be in Nature – walking, gardening, or just being out in Nature, connecting with the beauty, the wonder of our earth and world.

Make space in your day, in your life, to be still, to listen, to connect. “Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks within, awakens.” Carl Jung


Love is…


Love is making a decision to love yourself, no matter what, and to always forgive yourself and learn from your mistakes.


Love is taking time to listen to yourself each day and make sure you include yourself in your day.


Love is being a love finder and giving up that habit of the fault finder.


Love is remembering to fill in your Victory log and note the things you have done that you feel good about.


Love is feeling gratitude and spreading it everywhere.


Love is taking responsibility for all your reactions, understanding that your upset is caused by old beliefs and thought patterns and old wounds within yourself.  The upsets are an opportunity to look at these, understand more and heal.


Love is knowing that the only person you can change is yourself.


Love is being balanced in life in all ways – a time to be selfish and a time to be selfless, balancing masculine and feminine energies, love and firmness, a time for the inner life and time for the outer life.


Love is knowing that your true intent is to love and build others – not to hurt or harm them.


Love is kindness, reaching out, service, caring, forgiving, compassion, wanting the best for everyone as well as yourself, seeing the good,


Love is an energy of encouraging, healing, building, empowering, and bringing out the best in us and others.


Love is embracing life, living fully, doing our part, positive action, making a difference.


Love is inclusive – it connects us, bringing us to our understanding of oneness.


Love is the healer.


Be the depth and breadth of love that you truly are and rest in the truth of it.
