The 15 benefits of sitting in silence to refresh for newness


As we are entering the season of cleaning, decluttering, cleansing, clearing, and detoxing for a refresh and to create space for newness, for a rebirth, we are faced with the choice of how much, if at all, we play with this. It is up to us how we choose to do our Journey. Are we proactive and victors, or are we passive and victims in our relationship and our life… Whatever our usual, we are still faced with a choice. If you are usually passive, here is a chance to step up your game. 

And let me tell you, we can play full out or simply select an area to focus on and go about it gently. Whatever our style of doing things, we can honor that if that serves us or we can choose to change even that if we are looking to really uplevel our relationship and our life… 

Usually how we do anything is how we do everything… 

But we can empower ourselves and start making different choices. We can take more ownership and choose to do things differently, to change habits, to deprogram, to become our best self, the best partner, and the best human we can… 

We can choose to stop being who we usually are (a collection of habits and patterns…) or at least relieve the parts that no longer serve us to uplevel ourselves. Things we’d address include our sensitivities, pet-peeves, coping mechanisms, defenses, reactions, and anything else that’s our go to… 

Here is our chance to get rid of what we no longer want, what doesn’t work, what gets in our way and holds us back, what numbs, mutes, covers and snuffs us out… Anything that gets in the way of our authenticity, and our ability to be who we truly are… 

We might have done a good amount of clearing (deprogramming and healing) already but have a bit more to do, or we might have not even started getting our house in order… This is where we get to choose how much we’ll tackle and where we want to focus. 

Areas to focus on include but are not exclusive to:

~ Our External Environments – body, relationships, networks, calendars, home, projects, technology

~ Our Internal Environments – mindset, belief systems and limiting believes, thoughts, feelings, energy

We might not even know where to start, if we even want to, and never mind choosing how much to do. The whole thing might feel overwhelming. 

Which brings me to what I want to offer today, and that is to check-in with yourself about this. Not to impetuously decide on something, as a reaction, from ego, or from the top of your head. Give yourself a chance to really get in touch with what investment would make the most sense for you. Where do you want to place your focus and energy to most move the needle forward.

To that end, a great solution for this is to practice Sitting in Silence… 

Sitting in silence promotes:

  1. Relaxation and stress relief
  2. Calm and inner peace
  3. Brain development 
  4. Physical healing
  5. Mental health
  6. Processing
  7. Concentration and focus
  8. Productivity
  9. Learning 
  10. Self-awareness
  11. Intuition
  12. Creativity
  13. Patience
  14. Mindfulness
  15. Sleep

As you get all these benefits, you’ll have a greater sense of where you need to place your focus and energy. You’ll know what areas need to be addressed first so you can leverage them for better and faster results, and ease… 

And most importantly you’ll be doing the resourcing, deprogramming, and healing to begin with. You can’t go wrong! You’ll be already doing what you want to do before you even start doing it. Bam! 

To draw the benefits of sitting in silence to support your refresh and help you create space for the new, be proactive about adding this to your daily routine… Put your devise away for a few minutes, and gift yourself this refresh for newness.
