What is the value of silence? We all know the exercise of silence is necessary in such therapies as energy healing and meditation, but why? In our busy lives, we are anything but silent because life is our biggest distraction. The brain is more often than not chattering away with itself about all things found in our busy lives. So what is there to gain from silence?
We have to take control of all the energy in and around us. In order to reconnect to the Conscious Intelligent Energy of the Universe, the Inner Wisdom or the Source, we must be living in the moment. We can’t plan ahead to connect to a prayer tomorrow. Planning to sit in silent repose on Saturday is good. While there may be value in that silence, how does Saturday help me today – when I need it most?
The key is to live consciously, be present and in the moment. And the reason is because you need to command your world, select the energy around you and present the best thoughts and words that you can – because it’s all about the energy. When we’re on autopilot, we have no such control. We exist in the center of the tornado and will be affected by all of its swirling energy. Sitting in silence allows us to become conscious. This empowers us to choose the energy we want to be influenced by. Being conscious, means you are in charge. It means you select what is meant to influence you. You can be sure of the energy around you and starting with silence, being conscious and in the moment is the only way for it to happen.
