getting quiet

Getting Quiet

This is the 3rd installment of a small advice series for the blog that will focus on tips to bring quiet and calm to daily life... 

In the first Getting Quiet post we asked you to start with a very simple task... be aware of moment to moment interactions, thoughtfully consider those moments that stand out for you each day and your reaction to those moments. And the second task was to add a list of 5 unique things you really feel grateful for upon waking up in the morning and again another list of 5 things you are grateful for in the evening. 

The trick to training the mind is repetition - and small successes - that is why we are doing these tasks every day and in small doses. So with becoming more aware about our daily life, comes the heightened awareness of our emotional reactions. Sometimes, that can feel a bit disturbing. We might not like what we see. We might relive those emotions we felt earlier. We might not know what to do with it all. 

This is because we are looking at things with all our senses. Breath really deep and concentrate on the exhale and letting go... just letting go. Imaging the sorrow or pain, or struggle or negativity or physical pain flow through us and into the universe, it does not stay with us and set up a residence… it flows through us. We still feel it, experience it, but we do not have to continually suffer from it.

Think of this exercise as if you are an electric box - the current flows in, it flows out and you are still the electric box, just the same.
