Welcome to Day 26 of the 30 Days of Forgiveness. //
Hello, Dear One.
Today I sit in quiet stillness.
It is a sharp contrast to what I have left behind.
I’m looking out large glass doors and windows enjoying a lovely view. Mist has covered everything outside—including the pool area where my eyes rest. The scene calms me, reassuring me everything is going to be okay.
Last week when I posted, I was in deep turmoil. It had become clear that I needed to leave my home and relocate due to a continuous noise disturbance, and after four and a half months of trying to find resolution and quiet, I made the scary decision to put my home on the market and leave for good.
I wish I could say I felt relief, but instead I mostly wallowed in self judgement and fear as I packed my belongings and put them in storage. What would people say? Would I be able to sell my home and recoup my investment? Would my family be supportive with me coming home to stay, or would they judge me for the situation I found myself in?
I worried and fretted continuously—my mind so busy I could hardly sleep.
Yet here I sit—one week later. A calm, peaceful stillness has filled my heart and soul. I am staying in one of the most lovely properties on the planet, and gratitude has filled every cell in my body.
The contrast between the past two weeks remind me what a powerful decision I made—of how important it was that I honored who I am and what I needed. It ensures me that I deserve to live and work in a location that supports my wellbeing and joy. It affirms me that no matter how rocky things can get in life, there is resolution when one is willing to to do what is in their highest good.
All of that said, I openly confess.
I am having trouble staying connected with my Higher Self during this stressful transition. The uncertainty of things scares me deeply, and my mind can be deeply clouded with fears and worries. I often feel the Truth is obscured from view, and I’ve lost touch with my Inner Guidance.
Last night over dinner I shared this with a friend.
She emphasized the importance of silence at times like these. She shared she’s been to two ten-day silent retreats, and carving out time for silence can be one of the kindest things we can do for ourselves during stressful times.
“Silence connects us with our inner wisdom“—she gently said.
In the midst of my mind rattling on and on—continuously streaming it’s endless ticker tape of fears and concerns—I can’t agree more with her.
Silence is what I really need in this very moment.
Consider silence and how it could be instrumental in your own life.
Is there anything happening in this very moment that prevents you from connecting with your Higher Guidance? Are busy thoughts keeping you in fear? Is uncertainty robbing you of your joy?
Or perhaps like my sweet friend, you’ve actually experienced the great power of silence. You’ve seen how silence can connect you with what is in your highest good, and you’d like to reconnect with this personal power and inner wisdom.
Take some time today to be in silence and really honor yourself. Get curious and see if your Higher Self has anything to share with you.
I’d Love To Hear From You
