Silence is a Space. Silence is a Practice.
Silence is a Space.
“Through the portals of silence, the healing sun of wisdom and peace will shine upon you.” – Paramahansa Yogananda
In silence, we tap into our subtle thoughts, ideas, fears, and desires. In silence, we are open to perceiving the grandeur of our lives and everything we need to be grateful for.
Silence becomes a space when you choose to cut away from your routine and the cacophony of the world around you and allow yourself to be, to flow within.
As you bring silence into your routine, you learn to listen to yourself, pick up signs in the universe and give your intuition the opportunity to speak up. At a sub-conscious level, you are informing every cell in your body that you are heard and are taken care of. This makes silence both, a therapeutic and a beautiful experience.
Silence as a space elevates awareness and when awareness starts becoming a practice,
personal growth comes with ease, and managing change becomes comfortable.
Silence is a practice.
“Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than the silence.” – Spanish Proverb
Silence serves up as an empty canvas where new outcomes and possibilities can be explored.
To choose to listen, pause and then listen some more is the art of allowing space for a creative conversation, which otherwise would be perception led and filled with agendas, biases, and opinions.
When you create room for others, you are giving them the opportunity to focus on what they care about, and in turn, you also grant yourself the permission to think deeper about the results you intend to generate. A collaborative conversation is a big step towards building trust; both within and without.
Interruptions are so uncool that they always fail to empower you with the precious information you need to evaluate and negotiate better.
To take a holistic view, visualise various possibilities and make commitments that are fully aligned to the outcomes you care about, the practice of silence serves up as a powerful tool.
With self-awareness, you can develop this practice and become the leader who empowers others and builds future leaders.
