Lately I’ve been spending some quiet time alone. In silence with only the beating of my heart, I’ve been sitting with many feelings. Processing them, one by one, layer by layer, occasionally with the help of trusted friends. But knowing that I mostly have to do this on my own for what’s been coming up beats at my core.
It’s a change which can sometimes feel uncomfortable as growth occurs. Having had many changes along my life path, I trust that what unfolds will help me, but it is in that process, like many, I can stumble. That is where trusted friends are infinitely important. Because sometimes you need someone to walk with you on this path for awhile. To hold your hand while you get your bearings so that you don’t stumble and fall. To help you to balance your thoughts and reality to find a solution that works. To process those deepest feelings in order to release them.
I write often – journals, poetry and I doodle as well. The release in pen to paper helps me to expand my thoughts. I type as well and allow my inner voice to write. Curiously, I find that when I let go and allow my fingers to free type, I find solutions, answers, and my inner knowing shows me the wisdom I already had, but didn’t realize I knew.
Inner wisdom beats within the silence. Unconditional love palpitates there. We simply have to allow that silence to speak within us. We can heal ourselves from so much strife if we take the time to listen.
Silence is golden. Precious is the mind/body connection. Lean in and listen. You will find the peace you’re seeking when you listen to the silence of your beating heart.
