A time to be heard and witnessed.
My words are a needed blessing and gift to the ears of weary, soul-hungry
interweb weavers in the world.
Sometimes, I have a need to go inward and seek silence.
Clearing away noise and busy-ness to get in touch with my highest good
A time of spending days in reflection, meditation and prayer.
A time to heal and renew.
My silence is a needed blessing and a gift to my weary soul-hungry self.
A mini-retreat for spiritual maintenance.
It's not necessarily where I go, but that I'm in divine quiet.
So I made space for silence. Invited her to tea. Cut her a slice of cake.
Lowered my voice here and on twitter.
I spent several hours during the day not speaking.
Just listening to the sounds around me.
Do you know what I heard?
The birds singing morning praises
The gurgling, bubbling rush of running water
The crackling, snapping pops of fire's vibrant dance
The more quiet I got, the more I could hear
Subtle sounds of the quickening pulse of the earth coming into bloom
The bustling industry of trees converting poisonous gas to invisible
nourishment for my lungs.
The delicate swallow of Mama Gaia drinking in life giving rains
The tranquil whirl of my chakras aligning with each other
My heart beating in time with these ethereal rhythms being sung
all around me.
My Goddess self restored with the breath of new life
New thoughts and ideas ready to be poured out
New creations gestating and taking form.
My heart filled with gratitude for silence.
So dear luminous being
When will you invite divine quiet into your life?
